Fans of cast-iron grill grates rave about their benefits, including those distinctive grill marks that look so enticing on steak, chicken, and vegetables. Cast iron takes a little longer to heat up than other options and requires immediate cleaning to prevent sticky residue. While your cast-iron grates are still warm, simply scrub off food residue with a quality grill brush to keep them clean. Porcelain-coated designs can be cleaned when warm or cool.
Choose porcelain grill grates for an easy and efficient grilling experience. Porcelain naturally resists corrosion from wet weather, so you don't have to worry as much about exposure to rain, sleet, and snow. Best of all, because porcelain is nonporous, your food won't stick to the grill, which makes clean-up a breeze. Porcelain grates can be more vulnerable to cracks and chips than cast-iron, but you can generally avoid this problem by cleaning your porcelain grates after they've completely cooled and always handling them with care.
