Tips to Clean and Storing Your BBQ Grill Mat

  • December 28, 2020 12:20 AM MST

    BBQ Grill Mats have definitely made the cleanup process easier than ever before. As someone who barbecues regularly, I find that cleaning your BBQ grill sometimes feels like one of the toughest jobs in the world. Especially after chowing down on some delicious BBQ.

    Just like cleaning your grill, you should be cleaning your grill mat. One of the biggest selling points of non-stick products is that it’s easy to clean.

    Here are some tips to safely clean a grill mat:

    Always wash your mats immediately after use.

    Don’t use steel wool, scouring pads, or harsh chlorine detergents as they may scratch and penetrate the surface of the grilling mat.

    If there’s tough residue, soak the mats in soapy water for about an hour or longer before wiping them clean with a microfiber cloth, paper towel, or cotton towel.

    Nylon-scrubbing pads are ideal for cleaning grill mats.

    If your grill mat is dishwasher safe (most are), put the mats on the top rack of your dishwasher and run it on hot to remove any stubborn residues.

    Should your non-stick grill mat start to peel or get heavily scratched or damaged, discontinue the use of the mat to avoid pieces of the coating from being transferred to food.

    Storing Your Grill Mat

    Quality grill mats don’t come cheap, so you need to keep your investment safe even while storing it.

    Careless storage is one of the primary causes of premature aging in non-stick cookware, so you’ll need to treat mats with care in order for them to keep delivering great results for years to come.

    When storing nonstick cookware, avoid stacking them on top of each other as it may cause scratches that are detrimental to their lifespan.

    Before putting them away, make sure they’re clean and moisture free to avoid rusting. You’ll also find cookware and bakeware storage options that allow minimal contact with the nonstick coating.
