Barbecue cleaning

Weber barbecues do the bulk of the cleaning work themselves but using the right cleaning kits and following key steps will extend the lifetime of your barbecue and keeps it looking like new all year-round.

All you have to do is preheat on a high heat until the food residue burns off. Remnants can then be easily removed from the cooking grate when it is still hot using the specially designed brushes.

Useful tips for keeping your barbecue clean

Clean or change the grease trays regularly. This will further prevent the risk of fire from grease build up.

Burn off grates at a high heat, brush down and, if necessary, use a Weber grate cleaner.

Only clean enamel and outer barbecue parts with a special barbecue cleaner and a microfibre cloth that will protect your barbecue while killing off any bacteria.

Only clean cast iron by hand. Never put it in the dishwasher!

Useful tools to make cleaning hassle-free

Gloves: Since barbecue grills can sometimes get greasy, it’s a good idea to wear some rubber gloves before getting started.

Grill brushes: A true staple for cleaning your barbecue, these brushes typically have steel bristles and come in a variety of sizes.

Scraping tool: A plastic barbecue scraping tool is ideal for loosening residual grease from inside your burner.

Sponge: A two-sided sponge with a non-scratch scourer is a bonus for targeting tough stains.

Cleaning sprays: There are a variety of special cleaning sprays available for different purposes, such as for barbecue grates, enamel, and stainless steel.

Microfibre cloth: A gentle cloth for wiping and polishing the exterior of your barbecue – ideal for both stainless steel and enamel models.

Drip pans: Use these trays as a preventative measure: placed at the bottom of the grill they collect grease and make disposal easier.
