    My cousin has had this grill for little over a year. She used it a few times and let it sit all winter and the grates got all rusted. Instead of trying to get rid of the rust from the grates, she bought a new one and gave me the old one. Its in beautiful coniditon. Almost brand new, just got rust all over the grates. The rust is bad. Do you think i should just go out and buy new ones or has anybody had any experience getting the rust off? It looks bad, but there might be a way to get rid of it. Any cleaners that are good?

    Really no way to clean. You'll end up with rust in your food. Since you got the grill for nothing spend the money you saved on new grates.

    when mine get rusty a little brillo pads and hot water usually does the trick then just oil the grateswith vetable oil and always coat the grill with some kind of oil or spray and the rust wont happen as bad. If it is severly pitted and such probably just best off get new ones. Ive had the same grill going on 9 yrs now and never needed grates yet

    Scrub it down to bare metal with a wire brush.
    Rinse off completely.
    Oil immediately, (vegetable, corn or lard)
    Put in the grill and turn up the heat for an hour or two, oiling every 15 minutes.

    I just looked at it again. I may just need to get new ones. Its like a 800 dollar grill and is practically brand new. Its just wierd how they rusted so quick. She barely used it. O well. I could get some new ones for like 100 bucks. Its worth it. Better then spending 5-600 on a new one. Thanks guys

    all you need to do is turn the grill on high for abour 10min and let it get nice and hot. then open the lid while it is on and grill brush it real real good. it should come right off. When your done every time just take a cloth and keep it in a coffe can with a good amount od oil on it and wipe the grill down before your food and after.

    Depending on the brand. When you buy new ones you can get them Porcelain coated or Stainless Steel. I like the Cast Iron ones for the great grill marks. If you use it enough they wont rust, after a nice coat of carbon.

    Are the grates cast iron? If so after you brush off the rust just re-season them with Crisco shortening. I slop it on the grates and then turn up the heat for 30 minutes or so. This is the recommended method from Weber, if they're not cast iron I'm not sure if the same process will work.

    What are the grates made out of? If it's an $800 grill that is only a year old there is no way in hell those grates are garbage. Turn it on full blast for 30 minutes then scrub the hell out of it with a stiff wire brush. Then put some wet paper towels on the grates and use the wire brush to spread them around to clean up all the black dust. Repeat till the paper towels come off clean. After that, lube the grates with crisco and you are good to go.
