Background: I often shallow-fry my food with high heat and a fair amount of oil. This means oil gets all over the stove and neighbouring walls. A good thing that I do (and worth sharing with everyone) is that I cover these walls with cling film. Remove and replace: really easy.

Is there anything similar that I can do which can do a similar job for my gas stove including the metal grills/frames?

(I'm not looking for answers like use less oil or use a lid on my pans, I do this sometimes, and it doesn't compliment the style of cooking at other times).



Some people use aluminium foil to cover the gas stove. This way, you can remove it every 7-15 days and you won't have to clean that much. It might be a bit tricky to put the foil the first times, but it gets easier with time and practice

  • This sounds good. I'm going to give it a try, though yes it sounds tricky to implement! – LiXie Nov 15 '16 at 18:08
  • I just moved to a house with gas stove recently, and have to do it myself, I guess I will just cover everything, and then make holes for the burners – Mario Garcia Nov 16 '16 at 7:08
  • Make sure it is safe to put on your stove if it is electric stove. People have got electric shock after putting them. – Versatile Nov 21 '16 at 21:34

Not really a hack but effective. A splatter guard does not prevent shallow-fry of food with high heat and a fair amount of oil. Water moiture can still escape and most of the fat splatters are caught.

  • I've heard about these, seem fairly decent however I don't think it would be that useful for food where I may need to attend to it fairly often! I'd also have to clean this every time I use it so I reckon I don't really save that much cleaning in the end. Thanks for the suggestion! – LiXie Nov 15 '16 at 18:10
  • Cleaning a screen in the sink is as much work as clean a stove? – paparazzo Nov 15 '16 at 18:12
  • Yes, though cleaning a screen in a sink 7+ times per week rather than cleaning a stove once per week. – LiXie Nov 15 '16 at 18:13
  • OK question was not really clear on that – paparazzo Nov 15 '16 at 18:13
