Grilling equipment may get rather oily, dirty, and even rusted, especially if it is not thoroughly cleaned after each use and stored away from the weather. Here are several quick, low-cost techniques to get rid of rust, remove cooked-on oil, and restore your tools to their former splendor.
Even grilling implements constructed of sturdy stainless steel that are marketed as rust-resistant or rust-proof might ultimately start to rust. Let's look at a few more possibilities you should avoid before discussing how to clean rust off your grilling tools.
Your tools should not be scratched in any way because doing so will only enhance the likelihood of rust in the future.This means that while beloved rust-removal products like steel wool, wire brushes, and crumpled aluminum foil balls may be fantastic for use on gardening tools and wrenches, they are not recommended for use on cooking items.
Gather baking soda, vinegar, water, a small bowl for combining, a bucket, a soft-bristled brush, and a sponge or soft cloth in order to successfully remove rust from grilling utensils organically.
Make a thin paste out of baking soda and water as your first attempt at rust removal. Apply the paste to the rusted areas, let it set for a few minutes, and then use a sponge or soft cloth to gently wipe the paste away.If this is still insufficient, try applying the paste, waiting a little while, and then removing it by gently washing the rusty areas with a soft-bristled brush or the scrubby side of a kitchen sponge.
If the badly rusted utensils still need to be removed from the rust, remove any loose debris, moisten the utensils, and then sprinkle baking soda directly on the rusted spots. Before cleaning the rusted areas with the toothbrush or another soft-bristled brush, let the baking soda sit on the utensils for about an hour. Dry your equipment after rinsing off any residual baking soda with water to prevent additional rusting.
There is still hope if you neglected to clean your barbecue equipment after your most recent cookout and are now unsure if it is even feasible to remove the cooked-on grease and filth at this point. It may even be as easy as letting them soak in a pail of hot, soapy water.
Squeeze a few drops of dish soap that is made to cut through difficult grease into a bucket of hot water, stir the water to produce soapy bubbles, and then add your barbeque equipment to the bucket. Use a scrubby sponge or soft-bristled brush (like a toothbrush) to remove the grease, filth, and cooked-on food after letting them soak in the bucket for 30 to 60 minutes.Rinse your cooking utensils and dry them with a soft cloth.
If this does not work, it is time to up your grime-removing game with the acid in coffee. Purchase some cheap coffee and make some coffee in your coffee maker or in a stockpot on the stove.
If you're brewing your coffee in a stock pot, turn off the heat before adding your equipment. After letting the utensils soak in the coffee for approximately an hour, give them a hot water rinse and dry them with a soft towel. To get rid of any extremely difficult-to-remove stains, you might need to use a toothbrush or sponge.
Cooking oil spray or a cloth dipped in an oil with a high smoke point can be used to lightly coat the metal components of your utensils to avoid corrosion between uses.
The majority of grilling tools may be cleaned in the dishwasher, which is also a fantastic method to disinfect any tools that come into contact with raw meat. However, cooking tools with wood handles shouldn't be washed in the dishwasher.
Keep a basin or small bucket of warm, soapy water close to your barbecue to keep your grilling utensils clean while you are grilling outside. Put your utensils in the basin or bucket when not in use. Simply take the spatula or meat fork out of the soapy water when you need to use it, dry it with a kitchen towel, and it will be clean and ready to go.
Buy two pieces of grilling equipment if you frequently cook substantial meat-based meals.To use with raw meat, keep one set of utensils on the left side of your grill, and to use with cooked meats, keep the second set on the right side. It will be simpler to remember which equipment to use during the cooking process if you keep them on distinct sides. This will lessen the possibility of contaminating your cooked meats with microorganisms present in raw meat.
