To clean the exterior of your Griddle, always scrub and polish in the direction of the stainless steel grain. Be sure to wipe down the exterior of the appliance to remove any splatter or grease, but do not use harsh abrasives when cleaning. To remove any baked-on foods, use a fine to medium non-abrasive pad along with a stainless steel cleaner. This will help to avoid specks of grease collecting in the grain causing the appearance of rust.

Cleaning Your Griddle Plate
You should be cleaning your griddle after every use, but be sure to wait until the griddle plate cools off.
Thoroughly wipe the griddle plate (with the grain) using a simple mixed solution of water and vinegar and a rough cloth to remove food and other cooking residues. While we recommend a half and half mixture of water and vinegar, your possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to cleaning supplies. Dishwashing liquid, lemon juice mixed with water, and even coffee can be used to clean your griddle plate! You can check out some interesting ways to clean your griddle here.
You may use a scotch Brite pad for cooked-in food from the griddle plate. Be sure to THOROUGHLY rinse the griddle with room-temperature water after using any of these cleaners.
After the Cleaning
Once you’ve cleaned your griddle and rinsed with room-temperature water, be sure to dry your griddle plate. Lightly coating the griddle plate with the cooking oil of your choice (or a non-stick cooking spray) will help prevent the griddle from getting surface rust.
Keeping your griddle clean ensures it is ready to use at all times. So get to cooking and be sure to tag us @blaze_grills with all your Blaze Griddle photos! We cant wait to see what you create on your new Blaze Griddle.
