How to Clean a Vermont Castings Grill

Irene A. Blake

Vermont Castings grills come in a wide variety of styles manufactured in materials such as porcelain-coated cast iron, stainless steel and aluminum. Given this variety, any Vermont Castings grill typically requires only a brass brush and a few cleaning supplies found in most kitchens to get it clean.

Step 1

Turn up the temperature on your Vermont Castings grill after you’ve cooked and removed your food. Close the lid and wait at least five minutes. Turn off the grill.

Step 2

Scrub the interior of the lid and the porcelain-coated cooking grids lightly with a brass brush to remove burnt-on debris. Additionally, scrub the grill burner(s).

Step 3

Wait for the grill to cool completely. Dislodge any debris from the burner ports with the end of a paperclip and wipe away the particles with a damp cloth.

Step 4

Wash the grids with hot, soapy microfiber cloths. If any remaining debris won’t come off the grids, scrub gently with a soapy non-abrasive scrubbing pad to dislodge it. When finished, rinse the grids with hot water and wipe dry.

Step 5

Clean the rest of the grilling surfaces, coated parts or accessories that collect grease like a grease tray. Clean these with hot water and soap. Rinse with hot water and wipe dry.
