you could try spraying the oven cleaner on the stove top and letting it sit for a little while, wipe off and use as normal.

I use OVEN CLEANER to clean mine. This works wonders. Just put it on there, let it set for about 10 min and then it will wipe right off. But be careful, you need gloves as it can burn your hands. I dont use gloves anymore, because Im just really careful and rinse my washcloth alot. But I would hate to see you get burned. Also another thing...dont spray it on the back of your stove(where timer or clock is) because that is usually painted and it will remove the paint. Just be cautious and you will be fine. I swear by this, it saves SOOOO much scrubbing time. Good Luck

Use something like 409 and scrape it off with a spoon or knife. That's what I do.. Sometimes we dont want to clean EVERYDAY its not a crime.. try to scrape it off with an abrasive pad, otherwise you'll be scrubbin for days

You could try a paste of baking soda with your cloth or sponge. It creates a non-abrasive scour for the stove that won't hurt the finish

Use oven cleaner, that should do the trick. Or even baking soda and water. Keep foil under the burners in the future, so it won't be so hard to clean up.

I turn my oven on low and then put water on the stovetop. After the oven heats it all up the stuff generaly washes off easier. Ill use a scraper if i need to.
