Outdoor stainless steel grills take a lot of wear and tear from rain, heat, food, and everything else that goes along with using an outdoor grill. Restore the finish,  and get a new looking grill again!

Remember that stainless steel scratches easily.  When cleaning and scrubbing the grill, make sure you use non abrasive materials to clean it. Never use metal brushes or steel wool to clean the exterior of it.
Empty all ash and grease – Remove the grills and the ignition pyramids.  Scrap out all the ash.  Use a paper towel to clean out the grease trap.

Clean the Grill– Do a basic cleaning of the grill with MR. Clean Outdoor Spray.  It cuts through grease so easy.  You simply spray it, let it sit for 5 minutes and wipe clean.

To Remove Discoloration From Heat-The common household cleaner – Bar Keepers Friend-is great for removing discoloration from the stainless steel exterior. Use warm water, a soft sponge and the powder. Be sure to use it gently and make sure it’s thoroughly wet, so that it doesn’t scratch the exterior.

To Remove Rust – Use a rust remover cleaner that is safe for stainless steel. For example, Everbrite Stainless Steel Cleaner.  Brush on the cleaner and let it sit 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off.

5. Use a Stainless Steel Polisher For Restoring Shine – There are few different products available that you can use to actually restore the lost shine of your grill. Stainless Steel Magic is a good product for this.

Regular, thorough cleaning of your grill will help you keep it looking nice with far less work than working to undo damage from rust, heat and harsh chemicals. Remember to avoid abrasive cleaners, avoid cutting on the surface and avoid leaving food and chemicals on the surface of the grill. This will add to the discoloration.
