Regular cleaning

You should clean the barbecue grill lighly after each use and deep clean it every three months. However, be careful not to damage the paint or metal surfaces as rust may form on them.

Heat cleaning

Leave your gas or charcoal barbecue with the lid closed on the fire for 15 minutes to burn off grease and food residue. Once it has cooled down, the ash should be quite easy to get rid of.

Grate and lid

Many people recommend using a metal brush to clean the grill grate. However, experts note that such bristles can break off and get into the cracks of the appliance. Therefore, they recommend using a brush with nylon bristles.

To clean the lid, use warm water, detergent, and a lint-free cloth.

To clean the metal parts of the lid or the metal shelves, use a mild stainless steel cleaner.

Gas burners

To begin, brush the gas burners to remove any dirt deposits. Then use a metal pin or barbecue skewer to unblock the individual gas outlets. Be careful not to let any debris get into the burner itself.

Then clean everything with warm water and soap and dry with a lint-free cloth.

The inside

Remove any ash, food or grease particles, and then clean the inside with warm soapy water and a sponge. If stubborn dirt remains inside, use a flat tool such as a scraper or spatula.

The final step

After you have cleaned everything, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil to the grids and reassemble the appliance.
