How to Clean Char-Broil Commercial Series Grates?
Char-Broil Grill Grates Buyers’ Guide
To season your grill grates, coat all the surfaces with some cooking oil. For best results, use high heat cooking oil such as peanut or canola oil. Make sure the grill is off and completely cold before you spray it. Wipe off any extra oil using a paper towel, but a thin and even layer of oil should remain on the grates. Turn on the grill and heat it for 15 minutes until the grates start to smoke, or you see all the oil burned off. The surface should turn dark brown or bronze, the darker, the better. Once your grill has cooled down, spray a light layer of oil after every use to avoid rusting. Stainless steel and cast-iron grates should be seasoned before and after each use.
Char-Broil porcelain grill grates are rust-resistant and maintain heat very well, but you must take proper care of them to ensure durability. Even a small scrape in the porcelain will expose the metal under the porcelain, and water will be able to interact with the metal leading to rusting and bad performance. When using metal cooking tools, be careful not to scrape the grates. Do not use metal or wire brushes to clean porcelain grates. Instead, use a soft-bristle or nylon grill brush to scrape off any residue. Any extra food leftovers should be burned off the grates. Let the grates cool and use a nylon cleaning brush to scrub off anything remaining. For a deeper cleanse, soak the grates overnight in a mixture composed of 2 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of baking soda.
After each use of the grates, you should burn off any remaining food particles and grease that has built up on the holes. Switch your grill to high heat and close the lid. After 15 minutes, any food particles will have turned to ash. Switch your grill off and let it cool down completely. Then, use a nylon brush to remove any remaining residue by scraping it off. You can also use the metal scraper that is on the back of the grill brush to remove any baked-on food particles. Tap the stainless steel grilling grates and infrared emitters together lightly to loosen and dispose of any baked-on debris and ash. Spray a thin layer of oil on the grates after cleaning.
