Know the Truth About Your Stainless Steel Outdoor Grill

The term “stainless steel” is one of those misleading phrases that can cause confusion. For one, what makes stainless steel is not the fact that it is stainless. In fact, certain types of stainless steel can lose discolor, rust, and lose luster over time. Because we are seeing a huge trend towards stainless steel outdoor grill products in the market that echo  indoor kitchens, you need to know exactly what you are getting and how to properly pick out a stainless steel grill that will suit your needs.
Stainless steel grades. The most common is the 304 stainless steel. But you might not know that there is a 400 (magnetic) and a 300 (non-magnetic) grade of stainless steel. If you are after durability, you need to check its grade by placing a magnet on it. If it adheres to the material, then do not buy it.
Thickness of the metal. Thick stainless steel does not discolor quickly. You can tell the metal thickness of a grill by its weight and how hard the metal feels. Try to press the grill in the middle of the hood. If it is firm to the touch and does not buckle or bend, it’s probably thick enough and of good quality.
Finish of the steel. Rust starts to appear on imperfections in the typical  metal surfaces, but this is not usually an  issue  with stainless steel. When looking at stainless steel grills, feel their surface. It should have a clean finish. It might be brushed or smooth but it has to be even.
Assembly of the parts. Stainless steel has to be properly assembled to make the most of this metal’s properties. The best stainless steel grills are those that are completely welded. This can be an expensive process, but this ensures that all pieces come together and are fastened well.
Once you find  the perfect stainless steel grill, you will need to take care of it. Keep it clean, covered and away from chemicals. Keep it away from lawn fertilizers since these corrosive agents can ruin even the highest quality grill.
