I use the tool that was supplied with the grill to clean the cooking grate. First, char the "remains" left on the grate. Then, use the tool to scrape the debris -- I scrape it forward; if there are enough bits scraped forward, simply remove the grate and tap it against something to knock the bits off. The tool shape matches the grate surface shape making scraping it easy. The tool can also be used "on edge" to clean the slots in the grate.
