Maintaining your Cast Iron Cooking Grid
Maintaining your matte finished porcelain-coated cast-iron cooking grid is basically the same as it is for stainless steel.
On the Grill…
- Preheat your grill for 15 minutes with the lid closed or until the cooking grids are warmed up.
- Use a brass bristle brush (We recommend WB8 Brass Bristle Brush ) or balled up aluminum foil to scrape and clean your grids when they are hot.
If a brass bristle brush is used to clean any of the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on cooking surfaces prior to grilling.
Off the Grill…
- Use hot soapy water to soak your grids and then use a nylon scrubby pad.
- You can put the cooking grids into a large black plastic garbage bag, add enough vinegar to cover your grids, seal the garbage bag and then place in the hot sun for several hours. When you take the grids out you can wash them with hot soapy water and a nylon scrubby to remove any additional debris.
After cleaning your cooking grids with soapy water or vinegar, we recommend coating them with a high heat oil for an added layer of protection and seasoning.
We do not recommend using anything with sharp edges, abrasive cleaners, including steel wool, to clean your porcelain coated grids as this can damage the coating and allow for corrosion issues.
