Maintaining Your Stainless Steel Grill

There’s no question that a stainless steel barbeque grill is a great way to prepare food at home. You can make everything, from steak, to kabobs, to specialized desserts, using your grill. Unfortunately, if you’re not careful, you can also end up with a rusted junk heap that’s not suitable for cooking anything. While the first step to having a quality grill is buying at least 304-grade from a reliable manufacturer, the rest of it is on you to perform the proper maintenance. Here’s a quick idea of what it takes to keep your stainless steel grill operating at an optimal level:

  • First, consider where you place your grill. If you have a pool, the moisture from it can negatively affect your grill, and so can rain. Try to place your grill under an awning or otherwise out of the way of moisture.
  • As for the grill itself, you should get in the habit of cleaning the grill of any ashes or dried food. Consider lining the grill with cooking oil to help make it easier to clean in the future.
  • For overall maintenance, you’ll want to wipe down the grill frequently with warm water. Don’t forget to dry it with a towel of some kind, ideally a microfiber cloth that will avoid scratching the stainless steel grill.
  • To disinfect the grill, use the same process, but replace the water with a small dose of hydrogen peroxide.

By following these simple steps, you’ll be well on your way to keeping your stainless steel barbeque grill well maintained and ready for action for years to come.
