Angie's List: Getting the Most Out of Your Grill

Updated:

Now that the weather's warm, you might be thinking about breaking out the grill -- or buying a new one.

The experts at Angie's List have some tips on getting the best grill for the money and maintaining the one you have.

"A grill is just like any other appliance. If you give it a lot of TLC it will last you a number of years," says Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List.

Angie's List says that TLC should include a professional cleaning and inspection every year.

"What can happen to burners is they can corrode over time. They are being heated up so much and cooled down that the burner can rust and corrode," says Aaron Nelson, grill repairman. "Most burners can last five to eight years, but eventually they need replacement like a lot of parts on the grill."

With new grills, Angie's List says ask yourself:

  • How many people will you be cooking for typically?
  • What kind of accessories will you need?

"Don't forget to evaluate where you are going to put your grill when you do bring it home, because it will be important when it comes to shopping, because you want it to be in a safe and convenient place," says Angie. "You want to know how much space you have, so buy a grill that will fit appropriately. Also, do you have storage space for it in the winter? If you keep your grill inside during the winter, it will help it last longer."

Angie's List says give your grill a test run a week before a big barbecue to make sure everything's working. That way, if you need a repair, you'll have time to get it fixed.
