A good grill brush is not enough. You have to know what’s best for your grill grates. Here are some factors to check before buying one.
Bristles are an essential part of a grill cleaning tool. You should know what type of grill you’re using so that you can purchase the brush with the correct type of bristle for cleaning. Stainless steel grill grates work with any brush. For some grills that are coated with enamel or porcelain, choose between a nylon or brass brush to avoid chipping. Aside from this, the bristles of your brush should be tight and compact as well. Some bristles may fall off on the grill while cleaning. They can dry up and stick to your food! Bristles are not edible, and should not be ingested. After cleaning, take a look at your grill before cooking.
Buy a grill cleaning brush with a long handle. You need a long one, especially when the grill is scorching hot. Be careful when scrubbing off all the residue. You could end up getting your hands burned as well if you’re not careful and we don’t want that!
- Hook and Holes For Storage
Your ideal grill cleaning brush should be stored properly. Choose a brush with a hook at the tip or a metal hole for easy storage. This will let you hang the brush on a wall-mounted rack so you grab it anytime you need it.
You can get a decent cleaning brush that costs anywhere between $7-$23+, depending on the type, size, and branding. It might be too expensive for a brush, but a grill cleaning brush can last for years if maintained properly.
