Cleaning a Grill

Age, heavy use, and weather can leave your barbecue grill with a dull finish and rusted. Get ready for a new grilling season with a fresh-looking grill when you use your Dremel rotary tool to prepare it for painting and remove cooking residue. Tip: If you scrub the hot cooking grate with a grill brush immediately after cooking you will minimize grime build-up.

The 511 abrasive buff can also remove grime from the cooking grate. After the grill is clean, treat it with vegetable oil to prevent food from sticking.
