Buying a Quality Stainless Steel Barbecue Grill

Buying a Quality Stainless Steel Barbecue Grill

Some people feel like they’ve been tricked or scammed when they deliberately buy a stainless steel grill for outdoor use, and it begins to rust after only a few years. They’re rightly upset about this situation, but the problem is that not all stainless steel BBQ grills are created equal. It seems there is a recent trend of companies advertising that their product is stainless steel and tapping into the customer’s association of stainless steel with commercial and professional quality. Playing on customer expectations, some of these companies provide an inferior level of stainless steel grill and expect you to either buy a new one every few years, or at least invest in replacement grill parts when yours start to degrade.

That’s why it pays to do a bit of research, rather than simply purchasing the first stainless steel barbeque you happen across. You not only want to know the quality of the company selling the product, but also the quality and reliability of the manufacturer of the product’s stainless steel. American steel is supposed to be high quality, but you unfortunately can’t count on this as a guarantee. Generally, if the product is made out of a 304 stainless steel sheet or sheets, the 304 designation is considered a well-built product that will be able to withstand the elements outdoors. Less expensive stainless steel is simply no substitute for a quality stainless steel grill, and while there are steps you can take to maintain your grill properly, nothing takes the place of buying quality in the first place.
