post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

In the restaurant I am renting they have equipment that has not been used or cleaned in about 12 yrs. I am lost at how to clean this flat top grill!!! I scrap it, I scrub it, I use vinegar, I use the brick but there is still black stuff in the food when I cook....so I just don't cook on it but I want to!!! Please help!!

Sandpaper mashine ... It works perfect to make it like a new .. And after that just make sure that when you finish every night you will clean it properly.

ive had the best luck with a razor scraper (putty knife no good!) then use an electric drill or hand grinder with a wire brush attachment. once its clean be sure to season the grill top with oil and bake it on etc.

Break out the chemicals.

Get it smoking hot
Let all the shit on the surface turn to carbon
Take a long scraper with handles
Get a workout lol

We had one that was old and hard to clean, took about 2 weeks of work to get it down to the metal again

Just be extremely careful that you dont get it smoking hot and pour any water on it. Otherwise it will most likely warp
