Cast Iron Cooking Grids
Cast iron cooking grids, well think of them like your grandmother’s favorite frying pan. You know the one; she’s cooked breakfast in it for as long as you can remember. Like that skillet, cast iron cooking grids take a while to heat up, but when they do, that heat is retained and transferred to the food with efficiency. Searing on a grill that has cast iron cooking grids will provide the best sear marks, dark and bold - barbecue perfection.
Cast iron, especially when it isn’t taken care of properly, corrodes easily. To increase longevity in our grids, Napoleon has coated them with a porcelain enamel coating. When you take proper care of your cast iron cooking grids, cleaning them, and seasoning the grids properly, they will last a long time. This process is a little labor intensive. Additionally, unlike your grandmother’s cast iron pan, cast iron cooking grids will not become nonstick over time. The reason for this is that grids in a barbecue get, and remain, too hot so that any oil from food and seasoning will be burnt off during the cooking process.
