How To Prolong The Lifespan Of Your Gas Grill
A gas grill is an investment, and people who love to grill in the summer want their investment to last as long as possible. The average gas grill lasts between five and fifteen years before needing to be replaced, and while that seems like a large margin of time, the best way to ensure that your grill lasts as long as possible is to take good care of it. Follow these simple steps to prolong the lifespan of your gas grill for happy grilling for many years to come.
Thoroughly Clean Grill Once A Year
While most grillmasters clean their grill before every use to ensure that they’re cooking on a clean surface, it’s important that you take the time to thoroughly clean your gas grill once a year to help prolong its lifespan. The once-a-year clean should take place at the end of the grilling season and should involve an entire top-to-bottom scrub including the grill grates, cook box, and grill exterior.
Cover When Not In Use
It’s a common misconception that covering your grill between uses during grilling season can contribute to rust. In reality, if you allow your grill to cool down properly before covering it, you’re protecting your grill from the rain which will cause rust much faster. To prolong the lifespan of your gas grill, make sure to cover it up between uses and during off-seasons.
Quickly Tend To Any Repairs
If you notice your grill is in disrepair in any way, such as the presence of rust, broken grill grates, or a cracked firebox, you should repair it immediately, and do not use the grill until it is mended. The quicker you tend to any repairs, the less permanent damage the grill will withstand. A well-maintained grill will live longer and work better.
If you’re cooking any food that could be messy, sticky, or could burn onto the grill grates, make sure to take the time to wrap it in tin foil before putting it on the grill. Not only will this keep your grill grates pristine and prolong the lifespan of your gas grill, but it will also open up several unique and delicious recipes that you wouldn’t be able to make without tinfoil.
