Whether upside down or right-side up, I use them on my 26.75” kettle for just about all of my regular charcoal grilling. Love them! I also have other accessories for my kettle (Vortex, SnS and considering a Cajun Bandit rotisserie).:. but the GG’s are definitely the most used kettle accessory I currently own. Years ago, I had a Weber Genesis with full replacement GG’s. Hands down, the best gas grilling experience I’ve ever had.

Veggies, YES! Never tried a pizza on them... but I bet they’d do great.

I really like my grill grates. Got them for my Large BGE and they fit on my gasser. Great grill marks and great for searing. Grates are 150-200* hotter than the grill

They work good for veggies, both sides are great.

I had them for my Rec Tec years ago when I owned a pellet cooker, tossed them before I sold the cooker. Was not a fan, as many are though.

I could not care less about grill marks but they are great for griddling and preventing flareups.

"preventing flareups." This...

I've got a set, bought into the "higher" heat factor, didn't find that it worked on my gasser which won't run hot,.. but it doesnt hurt anything, I run mine flat side up, and it IS easy to clean, but no, you don't NEED one,

I didn’t like them at first, but they are growing on me.

I can run hotter now without flare up risk since I got them.

I have to wonder what "Grill Grates" originally were for?
It would be cost prohibitive to set out and tool up just to make an iffy Bar-B-Que accessory. IMHO

Sigh.... I think my cast iron grates that are OEM for my gasser have held up the best so far.
I have plenty of half burned out SS grates (not to mention the ones trashed).
