Cleaning a gas stovetop. Any suggestions?

Bengaliwife | Dec 14, 200804:29 AM     37

I have checked other threads and found one suggestion but I was wondering if people had others. I cook alot of indian food and my gastop burner areas get gunky with cooked on grease very quickly, especially If I fail to clean them right away. I have cleaned them before with vinegar and baking soda which cuts pretty well for cooked splashes, but fails to remove the really cooked -on ,burnt food. I find baking soda to be abrasive and it scratches the porcelain surface(I also use a paper towel. would a sponge be less abrasive but still do the job?).
The Hood over the stovetop is another problem. It has a very, very greasy and sticky coating on the top which even baking soda cannot remove or even totally cut through. does anybody have any suggestions for that as well? Someone suggested something to me the other day called "Bom". Does anyone know anything about that? I've also seen recommendations for "Barkeeper's Friend". What is that, does it work on tough stuff, and where may I find it?
Thanks.
