Grill grates are very exposed to corrosion which is why it is better to know how to get rid of it once it does appear.
For that purpose, I have prepared several methods that you can use to remove rust.
Of course, it is the best to prevent rust from appearing on grates through proper maintenance, but once it does appear, remove it using one of the below methods.
You have natural methods at your disposal as well as those that require toxic agents.
The best solution is to pick non-toxic methods. Trust me, you don’t want to cook food on grates that were cleaned using heavily toxic substances.
Of course, what method you use largely depends on the degree of your rust.
If the rust is shallow and there isn’t much of it, then you can easily get rid of it using natural methods. If the rust is deep, though, you’re going to need special agents to handle the problem.
