Start Cleaning Now.
The best way to keep your stove in tip top shape is to keep it clean from the day you get it. If you haven’t— it’s not too late! You can still improve its efficiency by starting as soon as possible.
Schedule and keep up with regular cleanings. Figure out a schedule based on how often you use your stove, but once a month is usually a good start. Don’t forget your oven, be sure to clean and inspect the inside about 2 to 3 times a year.
Reference The Manual.
It’s pretty easy to toss the manual aside and never look at it again, but it’s one of the most useful tools you can have. Any cleaning, maintenance or warranty questions you may have, the manual could probably answer.
In between cleans be careful of splatter and food spills and clean them up as soon as you can. Keep all pot handles turned towards the back of the stove, and keep baking soda nearby in case of a fire.
