View Full Version : Cleaning stainless weber grill

I bought my Weber stainless grill off craigslist a month or so ago and i want some tips on how to clean it. SHould i just hose it down and wipe it off or just use a rag with some soapy water and rinse it well?

Do they make a chemical spray that would help keep it clean?

I'd start with Dawn on the outside and a soft bristle scrub brush. Inside anything from a plastic scraper to pressure washer to oven cleaner. (Careful with the oven cleaner as it's harsh both on you and aluminum.)

I've had really good luck with white vinegar mixed with warm water to clean the stainless. I dip a microfiber into the vinegar/water and get it damp and wipe with the grain and then with a dry microfiber I "buff to dry" with the grain.

I use this as my "maintenance cleaner" whenever I get sumdges and grease marks on the stainless. Make sure you use a clean microfiber not paper towel.

"ProForce" Grill Cleaner from Sam's.


I tried most everything I could find before I found this --- IT WORKS!

Greased Lightning works great.

I have hinged SS grates in my WSM and the Cajun Bandit conversion and just clean them with hot soapy water and a copper scrubber. Works for me...

If it's just gunk, wash it like a car. I've got a summit 6 series that is stainless and I jusr washed mine up. If you have tougher grease / smoke then I used a multi-surface degreaser and a non-scratch scrubby pad. If you just need to dress up the stainless try a stainless cleaner or the vinegar option mentioned earlier. Good Luck

I'll try the vinegar method today.
