Checklist for Grills

Material
  • The material of a grill grate should be durable and at the same time be able to store the generated heat well. Thus, it can positively influence the grilling result .
  • Cheap grill gr ates are often made of chromed steel. However, these models are not particularly durable, as the chrome layer quickly flakes off.
  • A grill grate made of stainless steel is rust-free, durable and very easy to clean. Stainless steel is heat-resistant and can also withstand strong temperature fluctuations. It is suitable for both direct and indirect grilling.
  • Cast iron grills need to be baked several times before use, so that they build up a protective layer. The material is not as durable as stainless steel, but it can store heat particularly well and transfer it evenly to the food being grilled. The solid grill grates made of stainless steel are only suitable for indirect grilling to a limited extent, as they give off a lot of heat to the food being grilled.
  • An enameled cast iron grill grate is easier to clean and more durable.
Strength of the Bars
  • A grill grate with thick bars can retain heat better than models with thin bars. Most grill grates have bars with a thickness of 4, 6 or 8 mm.
  • While a cast iron grill grate retains heat well, a stainless steel grill grate should have thicker bars to retain heat.
  • Thick bars and an even release of stored heat give the grilled food that classic branding.
Grill Surface
  • Grill grates come in many different styles and sizes. Most models are round, square or rectangular.
  • The size of the grill grate determines how many people can be served at the same time. Dimensions of 40×30 cm are usually enough for about 4 people. Larger grill grates are recommended for larger groups.
  • The dimensions of the grill grate should also fit the dimensions of your grill. Many grills have an included grate. However, you can also replace this with models that suit your grilling habits.
