It's easy to make your Weber gas grill last for many years-just take good care of it. Here's how.
Charcoal grills are easy to maintain. For best performance, clean regularly as described below.
Charcoal Griller's Toolbox
Store the following tools near your grill for quick, easy, regular cleanups:
- Stainless steel grill brush
- Mild dish soap
- Sponge or dishcloth
Clean the cooking grate. (Every time you grill)
After the coals have died out, brush off any loose particles on the warm (not
hot) cooking grate with a stainless steel grill brush. For more thorough cleaning, use a wet, soapy, sponge or cloth
with only slight pressure. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
Remove cold ashes from the bottom of the kettle. (Every time you grill)
This prevents airflow problems next time you grill.
Ashes also absorb moisture, which may cause premature rusting of the
One-Touch Cleaning System.
Clean the inside and outside of the bowl and lid. (As needed)
If you allow cooking residue to burn off the inside of
your grill every time you use it, you shouldn't have to work as hard
at scrubbing the inside. You can simply brush off flaking baked-on
grease with a stainless steel grill brush. If you want to get your grill
in sparkling condition, either inside or out, warm soapy water and
a sponge or dishcloth are usually sufficient.
NEVER Wax or paint the lid.
The finish on your grill is baked-on porcelain enamel, so you never have
to wax or paint it. This finish is glossier and much more durable
than paint, and wax will only streak when the grill gets hot. So just
wipe the lid down with warm, soapy water when it gets dusty or dirty.
