Guide To Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is becoming more and more popular for indoor and outdoor kitchens alike and there are two basic types that we need to worry about.

  1. Type 304 – This is catering grade or austenitic grade, it is a higher quality (18% Chromium & 8% Nickel content) and therefore a higher cost. This is the grade you will find in professional kitchens.
  2. Type 430 – Commonly referred to as decorative or ferritic (only 16% Chromium & 0% Nickel content). You can tell type 430 easily in the showroom because a magnet will stick to it…and when in your garden it will gradually rust. In addition, type 430 stainless steel may become brittle after prolonged heating at 400-600°C…hardly a great feature for a charcoal grill.

So how do you tell the difference if you’re buying on the internet and can’t put a magnet to it?

  • From a construction point of view, type 430 is more difficult to weld. Look carefully at how a stainless steel grill is constructed, the type 430 giveaway is that it will be bent and screwed rather than welded. One other way the Chinese importers get their cheap price is by using non stainless steel fixings and fastenings, a sure fire way to initiate rust as soon as your grill is exposed to the elements.   
  • Look at the price, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. A type 304 stainless steel charcoal grill is going to cost you a good few hundred pounds, if the grill you are looking at is cheaper then the construction materials used must be cheaper.

Michael's charcoal grills are made without compromise and are designed not only to work well but also to give you a lifetime of grilling pleasure. All his stainless steel charcoal grills are made using 1.5mm thick welded type 304 stainless steel. He is also passionate about supporting British manufacturing and the local economy as a whole.

Whether you choose to buy one of Michael's stainless steel charcoal grills or another manufacturer, these same points apply when deciding:

Look critically at the thickness of the metal used, (this rule applies whether stainless or not). The thicker the metal, the better the heat retention performance and so the "cookability" of your grill, also the less likelihood that your grill will warp. If your budget doesn’t stretch to Type 304 yet you still want stainless steel, try and get something that is a minimum of 1.5mm thick, that way you stand half a chance of a decent cookout.

The only negative (and it is a small one) to stainless steel is that in order for it to look at its absolute showroom best it does need regular cleaning and this isn’t difficult. Click here for our guide to cleaning stainless steel cooking grates. To clean other areas we recommend a wash down with warm soapy water, allow it to dry and then give it a massage with baby oil…yes, you read it right, baby oil really does work a treat.

The “Cook N Serve” range of stainless steel charcoal grills is simple in design but effective when it comes to cooking. Clean lines make this grill look the part and solid charcoal pan ensures you have total control of your fire. These grills are ideal for the pub beer garden - especially in World Cup year.

Adjustable Height Stainless Steel Charcoal Grills

Our adjustable height stainless steel charcoal grills look like this

If you intend cooking for longer periods and parties then the adjustable height stainless steel charcoal grill was designed with you in mind. Having ability to vary the height of your cooking grate in relation to the charcoal has a number of benefits.

Raise the grill height up and you minimise the chance of flare ups on fresh charcoal.

Keep on the high setting if starting to cook fatty foods or those marinated in oil, lower the bar when the fat has been driven off.

Lower the bar for searing steaks

Raise it again at the end of the cooking to keep food warm without burning

Prices and sizes are as follows:-

Small (610mm x 400mm) -      £380.00

Medium (910mm x 400mm) -   £520.00
