We bought this BBQ a while back for the stainless steel plates that were supposedly ‘easy clean’. That couldn’t be further from the truth. From the first time you use this bbq the plate is stained with a brownish burn mark that can never be brought back to new. The supplier advised using rice oil instead of olive oil but that has made no difference at all. Having said that, it looks good and cooks lovely and evenly so if you don’t mind the stained plates it’s still a nice looking BBQ.
