Prior To Using GrillGrates: Clean Your Grill

Clean your grease trap and inspect your burners and flame tents. Remove debris that has accumulated on the ledges that hold your old grates. This will prevent flare-ups from igniting grease and debris in the bottom of your grill.

Tip: Should a grease fire occur, turn off the burners and leave the lid closed until the fire is out. Do not use water to extinguish a grease fire.

The First Few Cooks

The first few times you grill, sparingly use grill spray or canola oil on your GrillGrates. This will be come unnecessary over time as your GrillGrates season. ALWAYS oil your food before putting it on the grill. It is best to grill foods with high fat content the first few times you use your GrillGrates. This will aid in the seasoning process and is also a tasty way to break in your new GrillGrates.

Tips: Use an oil with a high smoke point such as canola oil or avocado oil. Do not use extra virgin olive oil since it smokes at 400ºF and gets sticky.



Clean the rails during warm-up with our Grate Valley Grill Brush or the Commercial Grade Grill Brush. Less is more. The technique is more wiping than aggressive brushing. Use the fingers of the GrateTool™ to keep debris out of the valleys. You can also use our new food-safe Grill & Grate Cleaner Spray in tandem with our Commercial Grill Brush to keep your GrillGrates in tip top shape.

Tips: Don’t do high heat burn-offs after grilling since this only bakes on debris. Additionally, prolonged exposure to very high heats (850°F +) can warp your grates over time.
