Cleaning a stove can be as time consuming as the cooking process, and depending on the type of stove you have, may be entirely too frustrating. Of all online opinions about stoves, 22% mention cleanup, making it the most discussed topic by users. So how do you choose a stove that will be a snap to tidy up?
Opinions show that - by far - the easiest to clean stoves are smooth-top freestanding electric models. And this isn't surprising, for two reasons:
- Smooth cook-tops can be cleaned with a quick wipe-down; no taking apart burners or using a brush to get into those tiny crevices.
- Electric ranges are more likely to have a self-cleaning setting that burns off all spills and grease in the oven, saving you the hassle of scrubbing and using toxic grease removing agents.
