Some of our grill models have painted components, and whether a grill is damaged or just well loved, it may become desirable to repaint or touch-up these parts of the grill.
Over time the paint on cast aluminum parts may oxidize due to aging, weathering, grease, marinades, or harsh cleaning solutions. We recommend sanding these areas with fine sandpaper or steel wool and spraying the part with a high temperature rated spray paint. High temperature rated spray paint is available at almost any hardware store.
High temperature rated spray paint should be used only on the outside of the grill.
Often times, the frame components of a grill are made of painted steel. We do carry small bottles of gray, black, or beige colored touch-up paint through our call center at 1-800-446-1071. These touch-up paints only match certain models and should only be used for very minor superficial issues.
The lids and bowls of our charcoal kettles, as well as the center shroud portion of many of our gas grills, are coated in porcelain enamel. Porcelain enamel is essentially baked on glass, which is very different than paint. If the porcelain enamel has become damaged, replacing the affected part is the only solution.
Many models feature stainless steel components. If the stainless steel becomes damaged replacing the part is the only solution, however, minor corrosion can typically be cleaned off with our Stainless Steel Grill Maintenance Kit.
