Cleaning Stove Tops

Joined Jun 23, 2011
So I have a Vulcan range/oven combination - the stove tops always get extremely greasy from flipping eggs and making omelettes, as do the bottom of my egg pans.  Now I know I can buy some over priced cleaner from US Foods or the like... but I generally just use some ammonia and a lot of elbow grease.  I'm a small operation so I'm stuck cleaning the things myself, wish I could afford to pay someone.  It always takes me a good half hour to hour of scrubbing.  Anyone have any advice, tricks, or tips on how to get the job done faster?

I think most dollar stores sell oven cleaners that should work.

Short of that, many degreasers are cheaper then you'd think.

I really like using a carbon remover on pans. I think it increases their lifespan, because scouring takes off metal.

Propane fired high pressure water sprayers are awesome! If you buy one, you could make extra money hiring it out.

The SS is somewhat pourous. I require that all our SS gets polished. It creates a layer between the surface and dirt. You can get away with 2-3 wipedowns before you have to spend time and energy.
