VIDEO: Seasoning Your Quantum® Grates
Just like grandma’s cast iron skillet, the stainless steel Quantum® Cooking System will need to be seasoned prior to use. This is most important as it will optimize cooking performance. In addition, it will make cleaning easier and inhibit rusting. Coat all surfaces of the Quantum® Cooking System (Grates and Emitter plate) with vegetable oil. If you use a spray, which is easier to use, wipe down the Quantum® Cooking System after spraying to ensure an even coat. Start your grill and let it burn for 15 minutes – or until the vegetable oil burns off and stops smoking. The shiny finish on grates and emitter should now have a very dark brown or bronze color.
Your grill is now seasoned and you are ready to cook. The more you use your Quantum® grill the better it will cook. The darker - more seasoned - the cooking chamber becomes the hotter and the more evenly it will cook. A light coat of vegetable oil after each use (once the grill has cooled) will keep the surfaces seasoned and help prevent any rusting – again, just like grandma’s cast iron skillet. The next time you grill go ahead and wipe the grilling surface with a well oiled cloth prior to starting your grill. This should remove any debris that may have accumulated and will help prevent your grilled foods from sticking to the cooking surface. You are now ready to pre-heat your grill and start grilling.
So, the three basic steps are:
- Make sure to season your grill prior to the first use. Coat all cooking surfaces with olive or vegetable oil. This can be done with a spray or well-coated rag. Heat the grill for 15-30 minutes until there is no more smoke.
- After your grill has cooled again wipe down or spray the entire cooking surface. This will coat the metal and provide a barrier to help reduce surface rust.
- Prior to cooking again wipe down with an oiled rag. This will remove any debris/rust that may have accumulated.

After each use it is advised that you burn off any excess grease and food debris that has accumulated on your grates.
Turn the grill to HIGH and close the lid. Leave it on for around 15 minutes and this should turn any remaining food debris to ash. After the grill has cooled, yet still warm, remove any remaining food particles from the cooking grate using a wire brush.
Brush the grates with a heavy-duty wire grill brush, such as the BrushHawg or the infrared grill brush available at charbroil.com.
Baked-on food particles can be removed with the metal scraper on the back side of the grill brush. The stainless steel grilling grates can also be tapped lightly together to remove baked-on debris and ash.
Always coat the grates with a light coat of high-heat cooking oil after cleaning. This added layer of protection will help ensure your Precision Flame Infrared gas grill will be ready for your next grilling experience.

Just like a cast iron skillet, the stainless steel grates in the PrecisionFlame Infrared cooking system will need to be seasoned prior to use. This is important as it will optimize cooking performance, make cleaning easier, and inhibit rusting.
While the grill is cold, coat all surfaces of the PrecisionFlame grates with a high heat cooking oil, such as Canola or Peanut oil.
When seasoning, it’s easiest to use an oil filled spray bottle, however you must wipe down the PrecisionFlame grates with a cloth or paper towel after spraying to ensure an even coat.
Ignite your grill and let it heat up for 15 minutes – or until the oil burns off and stops smoking. The shiny stainless steel finish on the grates and emitter should now have a dark brown or bronze color. Your grill is now seasoned and you are ready to cook.
The more you use your PrecisionFlame Infrared gas grill the better it will cook. The darker - more seasoned the cooking grates become, the hotter and the more evenly it will perform.
Applying a light coat of vegetable oil after each use will help keep the stainless steel surfaces seasoned and maintain their dark brown finish.
