We've all heard the saying 'An ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure'. This is great advice when it comes to keeping
your grill clean.
Periodic cleaning of this grill is necessary,
as grill fires can occur when grease and
food debris collect in the bottom of the grill.
After each use, remove any remaining
food particles from the cooking grate and
inside of the grill using a grill brush. Do
this after the grill has cooled down, yet is
still warm. It is much easier to clean food
particles while warmth is still present, than
after the food particles have completely
cooled and hardened. This grill is not
designed to be 'burned off' by closing the
lid and turning the burners on High for an
extended time. The excessive heat
generated can cause leftover grease to
catch fire, and can cause permanent
damage to your grill.
Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry. Do not
use abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a concentrated grill cleaner
on plastic parts. Damage to and failure of parts can result.
Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition, most
residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water solution or
glass cleaner. Use non-abrasive scouring powder for stubborn
Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or non-abrasive
cleaner and warm water. Wipe dry with a soft non-abrasive cloth.
Stainless steel surfaces: Stainless steel can rust under certain
conditions. This can be caused by environmental conditions
such as chlorine or salt water, or improper
cleaning tools such as wire or steel
wool. It can also discolor due to heat,
chemicals, or grease build-up. To
maintain your grill's high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent
and warm water, or use a stainless
steel grill cleaner. Baked-on grease
deposits may require the use of an
abrasive plastic cleaning pad. Use only
in direction of brushed finish to avoid
damage. Do not use abrasive pad on
areas with graphics.
