How to Care and Maintain a Stainless Steel Grill?

May 26, 2022 3 min read

A smooth, waterproof stainless steel bbq grill is a popular cooking tool for those who like to cook outdoors. Stainless steel is a sanitary cooking material because it does not absorb unpleasant liquids and odors. This means that the flavor of the meat or vegetables placed on it will not be affected. But to keep a stainless steel grill in good condition requires knowing how to properly care for and maintain it. Leaving burnt food residue on the grill will only make cleaning more difficult and may cause the surface of the grill to darken. Using a wire brush or steel wool may cause pits and scratches that will subsequently fill with burnt debris, making the grill even harder to clean. If you know the specific maintenance knowledge, then your outdoor stainless steel barbecue grill will stay looking good as new for a long time.

Stainless Steel Grill Grate

Tips on how to properly care and maintain this type of grill:
Stainless steel grills do not require as much maintenance as cast iron grills. But you still need to clean the entire grill regularly with a mild detergent solution and a soft cloth. This is the easiest way to keep stainless steel looking good. In addition, you need to pay attention to a few other details.

  • Use high-temperature oils with high saturated fats content for barbecue. Because it has a high burning temperature and neutral flavor, it prevents black dirt from building up inside the grill. Such as melted Crisco, grapeseed oil, then brush on the oil with a silicone brush and continue preheating until ready to cook. Be aware that peanut oil, while also effective, has an overpowering flavor and there is a risk of allergic reactions to it in some people. You can use greens and vegetables as substitutes, but avoid using olive oil.
  • Clean and season with oil. If you do cook with a lot of marinades, sauces and seasonings, you may notice a residue that resembles rust. This residue can be washed off with a mild detergent, plus seasoning your cooking grates with grapeseed oil will prevent residue buildup.
  • Avoid discoloration of grease. This is a common problem with barbecues. Barbecue smoke contains grease particles that leave deposits on the stainless steel charcoal bbq grill. Discoloration is usually evident near the edges that come in contact with the bottom of the grill when it's closed. However, it will bake on any hot surface and take on a golden, rusty sheen, and most cleaners may not remove this grease. Actual heat discoloration of stainless steel does not occur until temperatures exceed 454˚C or 850˚F. The internal components of the grill can approach and sometimes exceed these temperatures without affecting the temperature of the lid.
  • Clean hard to remove grease with a hot water ammonia solution. Pre-soak dirty parts such as shelves and frames - remember to wear a good pair of dishwashing gloves! Baked-on grease will soften and can then be washed off with a mild, mild detergent solution, rinsed thoroughly with water, and then dried thoroughly with a soft cloth.

In most cases, using a mild household cleaner will restore the original luster of the stainless steel adjustable bbq grill. However, if you see areas that appear to be affected by heat, follow the previously mentioned instructions for baking on grease.

Precautions when maintaining this type of grill:
When maintaining this type of grill, we should take care to avoid these mistakes so that your maintenance methods are more effective and accurate.

  1. Do not grill frozen foods directly. Especially on a new stainless steel grill,the heat will cause the food to shrink and stick to the hot surface.
  2. Do not use bleach or cleaners containing bleach.
  3. Never use metal or steel wool to scrub stainless steel. Residue left by metal or steel wool will show as rust.
  4. Do not use rough abrasives on decorative areas such as lids, doors, shelves, etc. They will scratch the surface.
  5. Never go against the grain of stainless steel when using mild abrasives or synthetic cleaning cloths.

    Consistent maintenance of your stainless steel barbecue grill is essential to keep it in top condition. Your stainless steel bbq grill is a durable piece of equipment that, if properly maintained on a regular basis, will last for years and will look gorgeous and striking on your deck for years to come.
