GRILL CLEANING PROCEDURE

Cold Grill (can touch with hand)
  • Make sure grill grease trap is empty and keep emptying throughout cleaning.
  • Scrape grill off to loosen burnt on stuff.
  • Pour 1-cup of SIZZLE® or SURFLEX® Oven & Grill Cleaner onto grill and spread around to cover whole top of grill.
  • Let set for approximately 2 min and then scrub grill with grill screen or green scrubby.
  • Scrape grill off and scrub again where needed. Put SIZZLE® or SURFLEX® Oven & Grill Cleaner into a spray bottle to spray on additional cleaner if needed to finish the job.
  • SURFLEX® Rinsing mixture: In a quart contain add 1-cup of pickle juice (as it becomes available strain and save pickle juice from 5-gallon or gallon containers for this step.) Alternatively, you can use vinegar. The acidity of the pickle juice/vinegar is used to neutralize alkalinity in cleaner) and 2-cups of water.
  • Pour rinsing mixture on the grill and scrub the grill with a green scrubby, top and sides.
  • Scrape grill off and rinse off with plain water.
  • Wipe off the grill. If you see any white film on grill it is an indicator that cleaning residue is still left on grill. If so add more pickle juice/water mix to neutralize the cleaner followed by more plain water.
  • When all residue is gone – Using a paper towel with fryer oil or vegetable oil on it and wipe down the grill to keep it oiled. (Fryer oil is better than vegetable oil because it has a higher heat tolerance.)
