What's a Glass Stop Stove Protector?

As the #1 Consumer's Choice in Range Accessories, Range Kleen leverages our industry expertise to create solutions to solve everyday household problems. In recent years, many of our customers with smooth top ranges have expressed disdain over the special care these fragile ranges require; they're prone to cracking, staining, and scratching and limit the available workspace in kitchens.

We listened to your troubles and created the Range Kleen Glass Top Stove Protector! Crafted from natural foam rubber, this premium cover protects your range from scratches, abrasions, and cracking while covering unsightly staining,


and scratching damage! 

To use the cover, turn off your range and allow it to cool to the touch.  Place the Glass Top Stove Protector on your cool smooth top. 

You CAN use the Glass Top Stove Protector when the oven is in use; you CANNOT use the protector when the cooktop is in use.)

What are drip bowls?

So, what are drip bowls? I asked this question many years ago before I started at Range Kleen. Hi there, I'm Whitney, the Marketing Manager at Range Kleen. And if you find yourself wondering what Drip Bowls are, I assure you that you are not alone. We hear this question often!

 My first experience with drip bowls occurred during my college days in an apartment - which, as rumor had it, was a convent in its past life. The apartment was spacious, the landlord was nice, and it was a great location. My roommate and I couldn't have asked for much more as college students. Also, it was incredibly cheap. Our fiscally conservative landlord ensured everything worked well but didn't replace or update things unless necessary*. Hence, one might describe the aesthetics of our apartment as a time capsule - featuring occasional updates through the decades. 

The kitchen featured an electric coil range from the 1970s, which functioned well; the oven was easy to bake in. Imagine the range pictured in an almond color. As for the stove, it was mostly okay, except the elements banged and rattled against the drip bowls anytime you placed a pot or pan on the stove, stirred vigorously or attempted to separate anything by "chopping" it (i.e., ground beef etc). At the time, I had no idea what drip bowls were. I didn't know that their purpose was to collect drips, spills and crumbs during the cooking process; nor did I know that they help your range function efficiently by reflecting heat toward the cooking elements.

I also didn't know that drip bowls needed to be replaced annually (whoops). I certainly didn't know that an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Quality fit from Range Kleen would provide a level, custom fit for my range and fix the banging and clanging!

I've learned a lot about cooking, working in the kitchen, and maintaining my range since then, and I happily educate friends, family, and readers on the importance of replacing drip bowls. If you need help finding the perfect drip bowl for your range, comment below - I'd love to help!

What Does OEM Quality Mean?

If you've ever replaced a part on an appliance, vehicle, or machinery, you might've encountered the acronym OEM Quality and might not know what it means.

What is OEM Quality? OEM Quality is an acronym for Original Equipment Manufacturer Quality, which means the OEM Quality piece will fit equivalently today as when the appliance was new.

Why is OEM Quality important? In Range Kleen's Drip Bowls and Drip Pans, we manufacture a variety of bowls and pans to fit the specific needs of many range brands; the OEM Quality fit ensures the correct fit and function for your range. A proper fit ensures cookware sits level on your range and won't rock on top of your range (which makes your cooking experience safer and more pleasant).

What is F.O.G and Why You Should Care?

With that F.O.G. in your kitchen, ya' gotta drain it while it's hot,
drain it while it's hot,
drain it while it's hot.
- Soup Dog

If you're wondering what F.O.G. is, you're not alone! F.O.G. is an acronym that stands for Fats, Oils, and Grease. And EVERYONE has a little (or a lot of) F.O.G. in their kitchen from cooking meats, batches of bacon, sausage, ribs, and so forth. There's also F.O.G. in things like salad dressing and creamy gravy. 


You should NEVER pour F.O.G. down the drain as the fats, oils, and grease congeal, then stick to the sides of plumbing, eventually causing blockages and potentially costly repairs!

What SHOULD you do with F.O.G.? Dispose of it properly! Pour hot F.O.G. (up to 200˚ F) into Range Kleen's Trap the Grease: Fat Trapper Bags! Between uses, you'll fold down the top of the bag and use the locking tabs to close the bag! Closing the bag contains odors from the F.O.G.

 Use these fantastic bags with or without the Fat Trapper container! Use one in your home, and take them while traveling! They're perfect for your vacation home,  Airbnb/VRBO, R.V./Camper, or cabin which tend to have fragile plumbing systems!

Caring for Your Smooth Top Range

In recent years, smooth top ranges have gained popularity. These affordable appliances offer a sleek, updated look in kitchens. However, the trade-off to having a glass-top appliance is that it often involves more frequent cleaning and care than electric coil or gas ranges. 

Allow your glass top range to cool completely. 

For daily cleanings, you can use a water and vinegar mixture (1 tbsp of white distilled vinegar per 10oz of water). Spray the mixture onto your range, then wipe away with a cloth. 

For a thorough cleaning, use Range Kleen's 3-Piece Glass and Ceramic Range Cleaning Kit to remove grime, dirt and difficult messes.

Use the plastic Scrape & Kleen All Purpose Scraper to scrape any crusty or burnt-on residue. Next, grab the bottle of Smoothtop Kleener. Shake it well. Open the cap, pour a small amount directly onto the smooth top surface (less is more).

Spread the cleaner with the included sponge. Next buff the smooth top with a soft clean cloth. 

Want to keep your Smooth Top Range protected? Check out Range Kleen's StoveShield™ Smooth Top Range Cover! 

Boring but important info: Keep cleaner out of reach of children. The cleaner contains citric acid. First Aid: Rinse eyes with water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, contact a physician. DO NOT mix with other household chemicals.)

What is the Range Kleen difference?

If you know anything about Range Kleen, it's that we take great pride in our Drip Bowls! You might even say we "geek out" when discussing them! We're the #1 Consumer's Choice in Range Accessories and here's why!

We're dedicated to ensuring your range will have the correct fit of drip bowl/drip pan. To meet this goal, we manufacture our Drip Bowls and Drip Pans according to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Quality, which means your range receives the same fit, quality, and performance today as the drip bowls/pans on your appliance post-production. 

So, how does OEM Quality benefit your range? When a drip bowl/drip pan fits properly on a range, it sits evenly and prevents the element from rocking on the drip pan/bowl (which can happen with an improperly fitted drip bowl/pan). The element rocking causes pots/pans to rock on the range, which creates a dangerous (and annoying) cooking experience and can result in injury. 

We PROUDLY manufacture our Drip Bowls and Drip Pans right here in the good ol' USA, which means when you purchase our superior quality drip bowls/pans, you're putting your hard-earned dollars back into the American economy! In addition, we employ many associates here, which also helps put money back into our economy!


Also, replacing your drip bowls instantly upgrades the appearance of your stove. It's easy to zhuzh up your range in minutes on a budget!

And for kicks, you should know that Range Kleen's bowls pass the following appliance industry standards testing

    • Fit, Function & Stability Test
    • Liquids Spill Capacity Test
    • Consumer Use and Cleaning Safety - Rolled Hem Test 
    • DuPont Ragu Test (Porcelain) 
    • 24 Hour Salt Spray (Chrome)

Q: What do Drip Bowls Do?

A: Most folks know that drip bowls catch liquid spills, crumbs and other messes. What many people don't know is that Range Kleen's Heavy Duty Chrome Drip Bowls (and Drip Pans) reflect heat toward cooking elements, increasing the efficiency of your appliance and saving you money in the long run!

Q: Do I need any tools to replace my Drip Bowls?

A: No, you do not need tools to replace your Drip Bowls or Drip Pans! It's so easy; we'll show you how!

Unplug your appliance from the power source, and wait for it to cool completely. The cooking element sits on top of the Drip Bow, we'll need to remove this to access the drip bowls. 

To remove, grasp a cooking element, then lift it out by angling it slightly upward and sliding it out of the terminal. Remove all cooking elements. 

Then lift the drip bowl, slightly angled, out of the element well. Remove all drip bowls. Find instructions to clean drip bowls between annual replacements.

To replace drip bowls, remove Range Kleen's Heavy Duty Chome/Porcelain Drip Bowls from the packaging. Next, align one drip bowl element hole with the element plug-in hole. 

Then, plug the cooking element plug into the terminal.

Continue with this process, replacing all drip bowls and returning the cooking elements to their positions. You've replaced your Drip Bowls/Drip Pans without tools in minutes!

Q:My range has drip bowls; what do they do?

A: We hear this question often, so please know you're not alone.
Drip Bowls and Drip Pans sit beneath the coil element on your range to collect spilled liquids, crumbs, and other messes that fall beneath cooking elements. They also reflect heat toward the cooking elements, which helps your appliance run efficiently, saving you energy and money over the lifetime of your appliance!

Cleaning Drip Bowls Between Replacements

Need to clean your Drip Bowls/Drip Pans between replacing them annually?


Cleaning stubborn spills or burnt-on food using a paste made from baking soda and water is easy! Add a few tablespoons of baking soda to a bowl, and slowly add water as you stir until the paste forms.

Spread the paste over your drip bowls with a sponge, then let them sit for ten minutes! Using a natural bristle brush, scrub them, then rinse the pasted off and towel dry!

Can't get them as clean as you'd like? You can find your Drip Bowl fit here!


Boring but essential technical jargon: We DO NOT recommend abrasive cleaners or cleaning aid such as scouring pads. Using abrasive materials will remove or damage the finish from your Drip Bowls/Drip Pans.

Keep Your Gas Range and Renew It, Too!

We're here to fill you in if you have yet to hear of the rising controversy with gas ranges. To curb rising cases of childhood asthma, the current administration suggested Americans remove gas ranges from their homes.

Text at top of image says Gas Vs. Electric? Image shows a gas cooktop element lit next to an electric coil range that is turned on
Why the controversy? According to Harvard Health Publishing of Harvard Medical School, cooking with Gas produces nitrogen dioxide, which releases microscopic airborne particles known as PM2.5. Both Nitrogen Dioxide and PM2.5 are lung irritants. In addition, according to an analysis of observational research, children living in households that use gas stoves are more likely to have asthma. Yet, observational studies cannot prove that cooking with a gas range is the direct cause of an asthma diagnosis.

We know gas ranges are here to stay. We love cooking with gas ranges; there are so many benefits of using a gas range. For example, cooking with Gas allows you to adjust the stove top heat levels instantly, offering better temperature control while cooking. Flames disperse along the sides and bottom of pans providing uniform cooking results. In addition, users can char foods over an open flame, which is a popular way to heat tortillas! Finally, ovens preheat faster using Gas as an energy source instead of electricity.

Gas ranges are also easy to clean! To clean and refresh your gas range, start by ensuring the range is turned off and wait until it's cool to the touch.

1) If your range features removable knobs, carefully remove them (so as not to turn them on).

2) Remove stove grates, burner caps (which protect the burner base below), and drip pans (if applicable). Set the drip pans off to the side.

3) Wipe the burner caps with a soft sponge, then rinse using hot water. Finally, set them aside to dry. (To clean the burner base, refer to the appliance manufacturer's instructions).

4) Rinse off the grates in the kitchen sink to release food crumbs. Mix a concoction of equal parts dish soap and baking soda; the mixture should be slightly foamy - if it's not, add a splash of water and stir. Place the grates in the sink and scrub them with a non-abrasive sponge, coating each grate in the mixture you've whipped up.

4) Allow the grates to soak for 15 minutes.

5)Wipe the stovetop down with a warm, damp rag. Next, create a cleaning solution using 1/2 tsp. of dish soap (which contains a degreasing ingredient) with 2-3 cups of water. Transfer the liquid into a spray bottle and spritz your stovetop. If the stovetop has baked-on messes or grease, allow the solution to sit for 5-10 minutes; then scrub with a non-abrasive sponge and use your Scrape & Kleen to scrape away any stuck-on messes.

6) Wipe the range top using a warm, damp cleaning cloth to remove the cleaning solution. Repeat steps 5 and 6 if the range top is still dirty.

7) Spritz the appliance panel with cleaning solution, then wipe it down with a damp cloth and replace the range knobs.

8) Rinse off the grates, then pat them dry using a clean towel.

9) Replace the drip pans with Range Kleen's Heavy Duty Chrome or Porcelain Drip Pans. Next, put the burner caps back on to protect the burners.

10) Finally, replace the stove grates and pat yourself on the back for a well-done job!

Refresh Your Range!

A New Year brings an opportunity to reset yourself, your home, and your life. At Range Kleen, we love January. January offers the chance to refresh our homes; it's an opportunity to harmonize our homes with our new year's resolutions to create a fresh start for the New Year. 


So many of us spend valuable time in our homes: cooking together, celebrating life milestones and successes around the dinner table, rooting for our favorite sports teams on television, celebrating birthdays, and so much more. Between whipping up sweet and savory celebratory treats and meals, your range collects grease, oil spatters, crumb spills, liquid drips, and more. Therefore, cleaning your range is the perfect start to refreshing your kitchen. 


Remove anything on top of your range or inside your oven before cleaning, then unplug your range from its power source. Wait until the entire range is cool to the touch. Next, remove heating elements and drip bowls or pans. Finally, remove the knobs from the appliance panel, wipe down the appliance panel with a damp cloth, clean off the knobs and replace them.


Our Glass & Ceramic Cooktop Kleening Kit makes the range cleaning process easy:

  1. Shake the bottle of Glass & Ceramic Cooktop Kleener.
  2. Pour a pea-sized amount of kleener onto a range surface. Then use the included plastic Scrape & Kleen to scrape away baked-on messes; use the sharp corner to clean the edges and crevices of your smooth-top range.
  3. Buff the kleener from the range surface.


Instead of putting crusty, rusty, or otherwise discolored drip bowls or drip pans back onto your range, we recommend replacing them with Range Kleen's Heavy Duty Chrome drip bowls pans. Find the perfect fit for your range here. After you've replaced the drip bowls or drip pans, put the heating elements back. 


To clean the oven's interior, grab baking soda, vinegar (in a spray bottle), a wet rag, and a sponge. Although modern ranges feature self-cleaning oven cycles, many folks prefer to use these cycles sparingly as ovens generate incredibly high heat levels during cleaning, which can lead to appliance failure. 


Remove the oven racks. Fill the kitchen sink with hot water and pour in 1/2 cup of white vinegar. If possible, allow the racks to soak overnight. While the oven racks are soaking, make a baking soda paste. Mix a few tablespoons of baking soda with water to form a paste. Spread the paste inside the oven on the base and along the walls, avoiding the heating elements. Let the paste sit overnight (if possible). 


Use a wet rag to wash away as much paste as possible. Then use your Range Kleen Scrape and Kleen to scrape away any remaining paste residue. Spritz any remaining paste with vinegar. Wipe away the vinegar and baking soda residue. Remove the oven racks from their overnight soak and give them a light scrub with a scrubbing sponge. Then rinse them with water and return them to the oven. Open the warming drawer and wipe it with a damp cloth, allowing it to air dry and close. 


Pull your free-standing range away from the wall, spray each side with vinegar and wipe down. Next, sweep or vacuum the flooring where the range sits, then wipe it with a damp cloth. When the flooring is dry, move the range and plug it into the power source. Reset the clock if necessary, and enjoy your range refresh!
