Fill your sink half full of very warm water. Add several squirts of dish soap as the water is filling the sink. Also add 1 cup of plain white vinegar.
Remove the burner if possible and place it the sink. (If you have a glass-top range, skip this part.) Also place the pot in the sink.
Mix equal parts vinegar and dish soap in a small bowl and dip a clean cloth into the mixture. The vinegar will aid in removing the residue, and it will help to deodorize the area as well.
Wipe down the stove top with the cloth when the stove is cool.
Squirt some stove top polish onto a paper towel and apply it to the stove top with circular strokes.
Wait five minutes and wipe the polish off with another clean paper towel.
Scrub the pot and burner with a dish rag and return the burner to its place after it dries.
