Do stainless steel grill grates need to be seasoned?
Then, do you need to oil stainless steel grill grates?
It's recommended that you preheat new grates made with stainless steel or porcelain-coated cast iron before using them for the first time. This will remove any processing residue. You should always oil your grates before or after each use for best cooking results.
Also know, how do you season new stainless steel BBQ grates?
Before first time use, evenly coat the grates and emitter plate with a high-heat cooking oil (peanut, grape seed, sunflower or safflower) or spray. Wipe all surfaces using a cloth to ensure even coating. 2. Ignite the grill and allow it to preheat on HI for 15-20 minutes.
Two Easy Steps to Seasoning Your Grill
- Before turning the grill on, coat the surface of the grate with high-heat cooking oil.
- Wipe any excess oil off the grate with a paper towel, then turn the grill on high for about 15-20 minutes or until the oil starts to burn or smoke.
- Tip: After each use, let grill your grill cool.
