Gas Stoves

Gas Stove cleanliness is tricky as it deals with lot of foods - from wet to dry; super viscous to free flowing; colorless to saturated color. The spills and drops near the burner get glued up with the stove with the application of heat. Companies around the world are continually working on creating outstanding products to help people clean their gas stoves and keep them sparkling clean. These products work most of the time only if used daily and immediately after the cooking – before the food cools down and sticks to the metal.

My friend who is living in a rental apartment decided to save both on cleaners and energy. He is single and working, therefore, cannot spend lot of time cleaning the stove everyday. If the stove is not clean at the end of his rental lease, he is supposed to buy a new cover for the stove.

To avoid replacements, he decided to tackle the situation creatively. He covered the entire stove with aluminum foil. This prevents the spillage to contact with the metal and also does not require him to clean it daily. All he needs to do is to clean the stove once a week and replace the foil when it becomes really dirty.

An innovative solution, indicating a need of a new product in the market.
