I use the self-cleaning cycle in the oven. You can use chemical oven cleaner, or put it into a sealed box for a couple of hours with a jar with 1/2 a cup of pure ammonia in it (open it outside with your face turned away...

My stove is a Hotpoint!Yep a oldy so I line my drip pans with Aluminum Foil...I secretly wish the old oven would break like last year!

My stove is a Hotpoint too! I can do the foil after its clean. But how do I get that crud off?

I would try some vinegar and a sponge.

If none of those work you can put it in a ziplock bag with a teaspoon of ammonia and leave overnight. In the morning rinse and it will be like new. I do this with my drip pans and since I have a gas stove the burners too.

I know how you feel.  One of my burners had some crud on it at Xmas and the burner actually caught fire.  It was small and my BIL put it out right away, but I secretly wish he had waited just long enough to have ruined the stove so I could've got a new one. :)

Put it in a pan of boiling water with baking soda.  Let it boil awile.  Take it out, let cool and scrub, re do as needed.  I used to do this with my iron skillet and stainless steel.

If it is aluminum, you will ruin it with ammonia.
