    Hello, New to the forum.. as stated I am getting a new 10 burner range  and double decker convection ovens.  My old ones were so old that I never bothered wrapping aluminum foil around it (we used to do it back in culinary school, it worked great and kept everything like new)   But I keep seeing people referring to their home stoves and how aluminum foil is flammable.. IDK i never had a problem with it when we did it.  

    Any advice on how to keep these things in great condition  would be greatly appreciated.

    There should be a tray under the burners that slides out, totally foil that mother - and switch it out often (every few days). Ive practiced this everywhere I've been, frequently foiling the pipes inside that comprise your burners as well, and have never seen the aluminum catch fire. Debris will essentially become charcoal eventually though thus the importance of frequently changing the aluminum.
