Weber's Porcelain Enameled Cast Iron Cooking Grates are designed to be easy to care for. Porcelain is naturally strong, durable and rust proof. And because food doesn't readily stick to it, clean up is a breeze if done after each use. However, although durable, porcelain is quite brittle. Always clean your Weber grate on a wooden surface to prevent chipping. And when cleaning, use soft, nonabrasive cleansers to avoid abrading the surface. With proper care, your Weber enamelled grates may last a lifetime or longer.

  1. 1

    Remove the grate from the grill or smoker after it has cooled and place it on a wooden surface.

  2. 2

    Soak a dish rag in hot, soapy water. Use the rag to scrub food and grease from the surface after each use. If your porcelain grate has burnt-on or stubborn food or grease spots, move on to Step 3. Otherwise, skip to Step 4.

  3. 3

    Soak a dish towel in boiling water. Remove the towel with tongs and place it over the grate. Come back in a half hour and clean the grate with a plastic scrub brush or plastic mesh scouring pad dipped in soapy water. If food residue still remains, spray the surface with an all-purpose bleach-free household cleaner. Wait five minutes, then scrub the grate again with the plastic scrub brush or plastic mesh scouring pad.

  4. 4

    Rinse the grate clean under running tap water. Rub the surface with your fingers until you hear a squeaking sound to make sure all of the soap or cleaner residue is washed away.

  5. 5

    Wipe the grate dry with a clean, lint-free towel.

Tips and warnings

  • Spray the grate with a grill cooking spray before each use.
  • Wash your Weber grate with soapy water before you use it for the first time.
