Why are wooden grill scrapers better for cleaning grill grates than a metal brush?
Metal scrapers are a health and safety risk. Wood scrapers are all-natural and safe.
Thousands of consumers have been admitted to emergency rooms because they swallowed a loose piece of metal that got dislodged from a wire bristle brush and stuck on grilled food. They're not only hazardous, they can scratch and damage grill surfaces, accelerating wear and rusting. Wood is the clean alternative. It’s all-natural, leaves no debris behind, is easy to clean and maintain, and in the case of hickory hardwood, it's extremely durable and long lasting.
Where do you make your products?
In the USA.
Our grill scrapers are manufactured, finished, packed and shipped from the US. We're a small business but we're proud to be doing our part to create and keep manufacturing jobs here in the states. We may cost a bit more, but the quality, craftsmanship and durability is second to none.
What kind of wood is your scraper made of?
100% Tough-as-nails solid hickory hardwood.
We evaluated a bunch of wood types before deciding on hickory, including cedar, oak, birch, maple, ash, and even bamboo, although technically it's not a tree it's a grass. NONE of them matched the strength, density, and stiffness of hickory. Our scrapers are practicallyt indestructable (under normal use). There’s simply nothing else like it or better.
What type of grills does it work on?
Any grills with parallel grate patterns.
Plus, they're designed to be safe for any grate surfaces including porcelain, ceramic, cast iron, and stainless steel finishes.
Will it work on Weber grills?
In fact, our initial prototype was born in service to a Weber Genesis model. That said, GrillSafe will work on all gas, coal and wood burning grill brands including Broil King, Caliber, Coleman, Char-Broil, Ducane, Fire Magic, Grill Works, Kalamazoo Fire Grill, Kenmore, Sterling, and Vermont Casting, to name just a few.
How do you use the scraper?
It couldn’t be easier.
The first few uses serve as the burn-in period in which the grooves are formed by holding and slowly sliding the scraper back and forth across hot grill grates. The key is to form and use only one set of grooves. You'll need to fire up the grill to 450-500 degrees initially. After that, it’s simply a matter of scraping as usual, but better and safer, on either a hot of cold grill.
Does it require any special care?
Unlike metal brushes that are impossible to clean, GrillSafe scrapers are easy to maintain. You simply wipe off the blade with paper towels or a hand cloth and some water after each use. Or do nothing at all. Whatever char remains after scraping will likely burn off on the next use.
As part of our manufacturing process, we coat our scrapers with an all-natural, food-grade mineral oil before shipping any out to customers. We’ve found that reapplying mineral oil a couple of times a year really helps to preserve and extend the life of the scraper.
Is it dishwasher safe?
No wood stands a chance against a dishwasher. We strongly recommend you DO NOT place GrillSafe scrapers in the dishwasher. See the Q&A above for some general care advice.
What's the finish work like?
Our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction applies to every aspect of our business, from the premium grade materials we select, to the craftsman-like detail of the milling and finish work we perform. All GrillSafe BBQ grill cleaners are cut, routed and sanded to a finish you'd expect to find on high quality furniture. We think you'll find them to be smooth to the touch, of substantial and appropriate heft, and well balanced for ease of handling and effective cleaning.
What is your return policy?
100% satisfaction guarantee.
We stand behind all of our products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you're not satisfied with the product within 30 days of receiving it you can return it for a full refund. See our Return Policy for more detail.
How long will the scraper last?
Considering it's made of one of the strongest commercially available domestic hardwoods, you can expect it to last a long long time, perhaps longer than your grill.
