Cleaning the outside of your grill is important if you want it to look great and last as long as possible. The outside parts of our grills typically include a combination of stainless steel, painted steel, porcelain enameled steel, and plastic.
CLEANING STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES
Clean stainless steel using a non-toxic, non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner or polish designed for use on outdoor products and grills. Use a microfiber cloth to clean in the direction of the grain of the stainless steel.
Note: Do not use paper towels, and do not risk scratching your stainless steel with abrasive pastes. Pastes do not clean or polish. They will change the color of the metal by removing the top chromium oxide film coating.
CLEANING PAINTED, PORCELAIN ENAMELED, AND PLASTIC COMPONENTS
Clean these parts of the grill with warm soapy water, and paper towels or cloth. After wiping down the surfaces, rinse them, and dry thoroughly.
CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF GRILLS THAT ARE IN UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTS
If your grill is located in a particularly harsh environment, you will want to clean the outside more often.
Acid rain, pool chemicals, and salt water can cause surface rusting to appear.
Wipe down the outside of your grill with warm soapy water. Follow up with a rinse and thorough drying. Additionally, you may want to apply a stainless steel cleaner weekly to prevent surface rust.
