Grill grate is one of the most important replacement part of a cooking grill. It can roast different kinds of food deliciously, mainly for meat (steak, pork chop, chicken cutlet, etc) and vegetables after painting edible oil.
As the grill grate will be used under high temperature, either by charcoal fire or electricity, it can only be made from metal, as plastic will get melted. Most grill cooking grids are made of cast iron, stainless steel, or porcelain and variations of those metals, i.e. porcelain steel wire, matte finish cast iron to name a couple. Some manufacturers will use a cast stainless steel grill grate. These are grates where the stainless is poured into a cast with a shape that is designed by the grill manufacturer. These are heavier than traditional Stainless Rod grates and have a greater ability to retain heat longer therefore using less fuel when grilling.
Material: Cast Stainless Steel
Cast stainless steel cooking grates combine the best of both stainless steel propeties and casting advantages. They have the same texture of cast iron (which is easy to season and easily builds up that non-stick patina) and the durability of stainless steel. It is long lasting, require very little maintenance, and won’t rust or corrode. If they darken over time, the stain can usually be removed with a grill brush.
Cast stainless steel grill grates show higher quality than cast iron ones, also due to the higher material cost, the price is relatively higher.
Stainless Steel Investment Casting Method For Grill Grate
Stainless steel investment casting is the best casting method to manufacture grill grate. It is made by pouring molten stainless steel into a mold to solidify and achieve a solid and compact stainless steel material in the desired pattern. Same with other steel cast alloys, this material is a common component for casting production. When corrosion resistance and the properties of steel are needed in a certain product, stainless steel investment casting is the perfect option.
There are several advantages of using stainless steel investment casting to achieve the grill grate designed. One such advantage is the ability to make stainless steel grill grates in different types and dimensions. Also, the investment casting process leaves the stainless steel grill grate a very smoother surface, which is not possible in a cast iron grill grate.
The accuracy of investment cast stainless steel grill grate is second to none. The high precision after stainless steel investment casting require no machining, which will effectively save on time and cost for our customers.
Like cast iron grill grate, investment cast stainless steel grill grate heats up quickly as well. It will not cost you a lot of time to preheat the grill before you put on the food.
Investment cast stainless steel grill grate will not corrode easily and is easy to maintain, it can be placed in your grill for a long time without worrying about rust, however, this is easy to occur in cast iron grill grate. And it will not take much time to maintain and clean stainless steel grill grates.
