    Typically: NO.

    The oven-cleaning products are such harsh cleaners that they will erase any markings on the stove

    - for example: markings by the dials that tell you where your dial is set.

    They can even (sometimes) take the "surface" of the oven off, leaving bare metal.

    It's much too strong for a typical stovetop.

    Note: SOME stovetops can handle oven cleaner and even recommend it.

    You can use oven cleaner ***specifically on the cast iron grates*** if your stove has them.

    This article describes relatively safe ways to clean a stovetop:
