EZ soaking pan

Recommended Posts

Saw this idea mentioned in another thread, went right out and tried it. The 24" diameter plastic pan is sold at Home Depot, Lowes, and other hardware outlets as a water heater drain pan. It has a one-inch drain plug, but you will need to get a one-inch PVC cap as well.

Works well, is shallow enough that the water will just cover the grill grate. I added some white vinegar as well, let it soak overnight.

Just a minute with a standard wire grill brush got the grill pretty clean. I also cleaned the heat deflector base with a little Bon Ami.

Great idea

I had to run out to Home Depot and pick one up.

My wife was tired of me trying to wash the grill in the kitchen sink.

Carbon black gets everywhere.

The grill looks great but I must admit - I prefer to keep mine "seasoned" :D That's lazy-man's terminology for "what the grill floss does not knock off, stays!" :lol:

I would find the greasy water and mess that came from the pan more problematic that the black on the grates. Fire is a pretty good sterilizer, and a little mechanical help from a grill floss gets rid of anything that could attach to your food.

If they really need to be rinsed, then I could hang them out on the hook and let the rains handle it.

Im a neat freak too, so I can fully relate to your compulsion...Im just glad i dont have this particular one :D

Now the drip pans, or HD liner (which i only use as a smaller drip pan), they get cleaned out and run through the dishwasher after use.
