Self cleaning home cooking stoves clean themselves. This makes scrubbing the inside of the oven much easier on the individual.

Gas burner cooktops are fitted with burners, they usually come with a simmer burner for gentle cooking. They also can come with a wok burner. Radiant elements are designed with coil like light weight elements that are designed to heat quickly and be cleaned easily. Generally speaking thicker elements heat more quickly and last longer than thinner elements. Smooth top elements are made with ceramic glass which provide almost instantaneous heat, they also sit level with the countertop so they do not stick out and are easier to clean.
