Every barbecue needs thorough maintenance on a regular basis. Only this way will you enjoy tasty and safe barbecue parties for many years to come.
What to pay attention to with respect to the maintenance of your charcoal barbecue?
Enamelled parts are very easy to maintain. Feel free to use abrasive detergents and sponges.
Do note: never pour cold water into an enamelled burner box while it is still hot, as it could damage the enamel. Hence do not start cleaning too quickly after your party, but wait a while until everything has cooled off.
The BBQ cleaner is also handy. Spray this foam onto the soiled parts, leave to set and rinse using a sponge and a little water.
Stainless steel parts
In order to clean stainless steel parts, do not use abrasive cleaners or scourers. Therefore go for a non-abrasive detergent and a soft sponge or cloth. Allow the product to set, rinse and dry thoroughly.
Would you like to prevent rust?
Ensure that the stainless steel parts do not come into contact with chlorine, salt or iron.
To clean your grid, it is best to soak it briefly (in a plastic flower pot tray, for example) and clean it with a soft sponge and a non-abrasive detergent. Subsequently thoroughly dry the grid and store it indoors.
Storing in a dry place
Is your barbecue clean? Dry it thoroughly and keep it in a dry place, in your garage, garden shed or in another covered, dry location. It is recommended to protect your barbecue with a cover.
If your BBQ will hibernate for a long time, remove the grid and store it indoors.
