I tried many of those cleaners, and they work. However, it is hard work, and breathing can be an issued, especially with products containing chlorine. Don't spray these. Use a small paint
Also, getting the sticky stuff off is one thing, but keeping it from getting on again is quite another.
We are the the type that prepare all our meals in our Scamp
. So the chance of getting sticky on again is high, especially since my wife is Vietnamese and loves to stir fry, saute, use garlic, onions, cilantro root, etc.
To accommodate this, I changed out the cooktop for a yacht type stainless steel range, a Force 10. I also added a fan in the window. All the vinyl covered foam was cleaned, then painted with a coat of primer and three coats of white glossy enamel. I would have preferred teflon, but this is about as close as one could get!
