When you’ve got grime on your grime in your stove top burning pans and then you manage to boil over milk on top of that grime, it is time for a life change: Clean the darned stove top!
Yes, you could buy some of that toxic-smelling oven cleaner, spray it on, and wipe it off. Your kitchen will smell like a toxic wasteland and your burner pans won’t be much cleaner than they will be with this “volcano” method. Every science fair has a variant of this cleaning project: pour vinegar over baking soda and watch it bubble and fizz.
The burner in the picture was treated two times and allowed to soak about 30 minutes each — a short time because of the anxiousness of the helper in the picture. After two scrubbings, there was still a bit of black on the pans but the pans more than met my standard. Your standards may vary. 🙂
