3 Essential Steps to Cleaning a Grill

1. Clean the grates after every use

Use a brass or stainless steel wire brush after you’ve finished cooking, when the grates are still warm. Alternatively, before you grill, turn the burner to high, then brush the hot grates after the smoke clears. If the grates don’t have a porcelain coating, you can also use crumpled aluminum foil to scrape them once they’re cool.

2. Clean the grill brush after every use

Use hot, soapy water to prevent bacteria from growing because of food caught in the bristles.

3. Empty the grease catch pan after it cools

Heat from the grill can cause grease to catch fire, so wipe the pan after every use and use a grill brush to scrape out any stubborn residue; you can also use disposable liners made by the grill manufacturer.

Tips for Buying a Gas Grill … What to look for in a $1000 Grill

Body construction

A $1,000 grill should be constructed entirely of stainless steel—including the bolts and screws that hold the cart together. Most such grills combine low- and high-grade stainless steel. Use a magnet to test the grade: It will stick to lower-quality 430-grade stainless, but not to the more durable 304-grade. Also look for rubber wheels with a full axle—they are more durable than those bolted directly to the frame.

Burners

The more independently controlled burners a grill has, the greater the versatility and fuel efficiency. Grills in this price range usually have three or four tube-shaped burners, often covered by metal plates that help distribute heat evenly and minimize flare-ups. They usually include a side burner as well as a smoker box (which burns wood chips to give food a smoky flavor) or a rotisserie with an infrared burner.

Cooking grates

Grates are almost always made of stainless steel or cast iron. Just as some people prefer stainless steel pans and others cast iron, each material has its proponents.
tip Cast-iron grates, like cast-iron pans, must be seasoned periodically to prevent them from rusting.

Ignition

Look for electronic ignitions, which emit a continuous spark and are powered by batteries.

Size

Most have primary cooking areas of approximately 600 square inches, which is large enough to cook food for eight to 10 people.

Warranty

Two to five years on most parts; lifetime on some components.

Brands to look for

Broilmaster, Ducane, Modern Home Products, Napoleon, Weber
