The best kitchen degreaser is one that works on all surfaces, including countertops, cabinets, sinks, stovetops and appliance surfaces. Commercial multi-purpose cleaners, such as Lysol, made by Reckitt Benckiser LLC, or Pine Sol, a product of The Clorox Company, work well for everyday kitchen cleanup.

These products combine degreasing agents, disinfectants and fragrances, saving consumers time and money. A heavy-duty degreaser, such as Lestoil, another Clorox product, may be more effective for removing greasy residue that has built up over time. The best natural solution is vinegar, which cuts through grease without exposure to harmful chemicals.

Marble, granite and other natural stone kitchen surfaces cannot be cleaned with most commercial cleaning products or natural acidic cleaners, such as vinegar or lemon juice. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding cleaning products for these surfaces.
