After cooking your Christmas dinner, it’s likely your hob is looking a little worse for wear.

Grease, gravy and oil can all cause considerable staining and leave stubborn marks on hobs.

While it may be tempting to use chemicals to clean your hob, experts have shared how you can make your hob sparkling by just using household essentials.

Salah Sun, head of product management at Leisure, one of the UK’s leading range cooker brands, is on a mission to keep hobs looking their best across the country.

He said: “While it might not be the most glamorous task, keeping hobs clean is crucial since they are the heart of the kitchen.

“With these handy tips, you can say goodbye to mucky hobs and get back to preparing marvellous meals for your friends and family to enjoy.”

The cooker expert has shared how to clean ceramic, induction and gas hobs.

Induction and ceramic hobs

If you have a ceramic or induction hob, you’re lucky as these types of hobs are the easiest to clean.

Firstly, homeowners need to wipe down the hob and any glass doors with a damp cloth after each use to remove any build-up of food debris and grease.

Next, clean the hob’s surface using a soft cloth and a mixture of warm water and washing-up liquid.

Then, wipe the surface dry with a clean cloth. Your hob should be sparkly clean and ready for your Boxing Day supper.

If there are any stubborn stains, Salah suggested using a zero-chemical cleaning liquid or cream specifically designed for use on ceramic and induction hobs.

Apply the cream to the stained areas and allow it to be absorbed thoroughly before wiping down the hob’s surface once again.

Gas hobs

Start by removing all the pan supports and gas caps before using a warm water and washing up liquid solution with a soft cloth to clean the hob’s surface.

Once everything has dried and the hob is gleaming, reattach the caps and pan supports.
