The cast iron grids of the Barbecook barbecues always have a matte enamel finish. This finish makes maintenance easier, but not superfluous. To extend the life of your cast iron grids and contact plates and to prevent rust formation, proper maintenance remains crucial.
Before using your barbecue for the first time, we always recommend washing the grids and contact plates with a mild detergent and hot water. With cast iron parts it is always important to let them dry thoroughly after cleaning/washing.
We also recommend that you regularly grease the grids with a neutral oil, such as ground nut, sunflower or rice oil. In this way, you can prevent rust formation.
For thorough cleaning of the barbecue grids and contact plates we have the Barbecook grill cleaner in our range. After each use, let the grids cool down and rub them with the barbecook grill cleaner. The foam of the grill cleaner loosens the fats, so that after a few minutes you can easily clean them. Again, it is very important to let the grids dry thoroughly before storing them again.
- The more you use your cast iron barbecue grids, the easier the maintenance.
- Are you storing your barbecue grids for a longer period of time? Then rub them lightly with a neutral oil (ground nut, sunflower, or rice oil) after cleaning. Wrap them in newspaper and store them indoors.
- Before barbecuing, always apply a thin layer of oil to the enameled grids and contact plates. This will make the food less likely to stick.
