Cleaning Grill Grates

How to clean the grill grates for your KitchenAid outdoor grill 

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to grill grates, do not use a steel or fiber scraper.

Immediately after you are finished cooking, loosen food soil with a brass bristle brush.

  1. Turn all burners to HIGH for 10-15 minutes with the hood closed to burn off food soil.
  2. Turn off all burners, raise the hood and let grates cool. 
  3. Use the brass bristle brush to remove ash from the grill grates.

When completely cool, grill racks can be removed for thorough cleaning.

  • Clean them with a mild detergent and warm water.
  • For baked-on soil, prepare a solution of 1 cup (250mL) ammonia to 1 gal. (3.75 L) water.
  • Soak grates for 20 minutes, then rinse with water and dry completely.
