Great Scrape – Wooden Grill Scraper

If you like to grill outdoors, you’ve probably wondered how to deal with the grime that’s left over on the grates themselves.  And who wants a nasty cooking surface the next time you’re ready to fire up the grill?  Well, here’s a great solution.  It’s called the Great Scrape and it’s an all-natural alternative to those wire brushes you’re familiar with.  Because it’s made of hardwood, there’s no need to worry about those wire bristles breaking off and possibly winding up in your next meal which is super dangerous.  Learn more about it this wooden grill scraper in this installment of our Cool Tools series.

When it comes to grill maintenance, it’s important to not let the condition of the grill get too far gone.  Here’s a great list to use as a guide:

  • Conduct a thorough cleaning about twice a year, depending on how often you use the grill
  • For heavy users, be sure you do a deep-clean and inspection of all parts and connectors
    • Remove the grates, soak and scrub using a heavy-duty cloth or scraper and soap and water (be sure to check for rust – if they’re too rusty, you may want to replace them); towel dry when finished
    • Check the burners for any excess residue and clean them appropriately
    • For propane grills, inspect the connections for a tight fit
    • Using soap and water or a degreaser, clean all cooking surfaces
