Houston Stove Removal

There is nothing like the satisfaction that comes from cooking a great meal and sharing with friends and family. Hopefully, you’ve got the kind of friends who follow the “You cook and we’ll clean” rule. Doing the dishes is one thing but cleaning that stove might take a bit more effort. There are some helpful cleaning tips that you might not be aware which can get your out of the kitchen fast and back to your friends.

When cleaning a porcelain surface it’s best to use hot, soapy water and then let it dry. Over crusty spots, place a paper towel that is soaked with household ammonia. Cover that with plastic wrap and let it sit for a few hours to soak up that burnt food. Then scrub with that soapy water mixture. The key is not using anything abrasive that might scratch up the surface. You can also try baking soda sprinkle around the grease spots and then spray it with hot water to let it dissolve. Soak that for 30 minutes and then scrub up.

For drip pans, put them in a garbage bag and spray with oven cleaner and let it sit overnight. The next morning, take out the pans for an easy rinse off. For stovetop rings, it’s best to soak them in a pot of boiling water and baking soda. Let them sit overnight as well for all that crust to melt away.

There might come a time when even cleaning the stove won’t be enough. Maybe that old oven isn’t working as it once did. Perhaps it’s burning cakes before their time. When your stove has outlived its usefulness it’s time to make the switch. As you head out shopping you’ll find a lot of wonderful options for a new stove. Even the most basic of new stove models can improve your culinary skills. Don’t let the excitement of getting a new stove overshadow the need for tossing out the old one.

You could probably travel through your neighborhood and find plenty of garages with old stoves inside. That’s because this is one of the many oversized items that can’t be put out on the curb and hope that it will just disappear. Your stove needs to go out the same way it came in and that would be on the back of a big truck. The same kind of truck that the Junk King Houston will provide when you hire them for the removal job.

Houston Grill Disposal and Recycling

Finally, spring has sprung and the weather is turning warm and breezy. That means it’s time to fire up the backyard grills. If your BBQ has taken a beaten from the weather, it might be time to swap out the old rusty model for a new and improved grill. As with everything in life, “you’ll get what you pay for.” A decent gas grill can run you anywhere from $150 to $300. You can also drop upwards of $10,000 for a primo grill. Most stores where you would go grill shopping can only stock a few models because of their size. That’s why you might be better off shopping online for a bargain. The only drawback is that you might have to assemble the grill yourself.

A grill can be made from cast aluminum, sheet metal, cast iron or stainless steel. The professional chef will tell you that stainless steel for the body and cast iron for the grill is the best ways to go. You want to pay close attention to what the frame is made of. It might look like stainless steel but it could just be a painted steel frame. That type of design can rust and you’ll find yourself replacing the grill sooner than later. Whenever possible, manufacturers will always try to take shortcuts with the metal!

Size matters with a grill especially if you’ll be cooking for a large family. You’ll want a big enough grill space that can accommodate what you’ll be grilling up for a typical meal. Better to have extra space and not need it than to need space and not have it. As for the features, think about how you like to cook. Would a side burner help with sauces or side dishes? Is a smoker box important for what you might cook? What about a rotisserie? Yes, you can go a bit overboard with the “bells and whistles” but why not? Just know that every extra feature is going to mean extra money.
