funny you should ask, I cleaned mine yesterday for the first time in a year. i scrape out the crude from the bottom. torch the rest of the inside then scrape lightly with a scraper or wire brush. torch the grates before every cook and brush with wire brush. I don't clean the grates after a cook because the grease keeps them from rusting. no power washing and never soap, just like a cast iron skillet.
