Part 1: Keep Your Weber Q Shining Bright:

Let’s dive into the essentials of maintaining your Weber Q’s sparkle. At Heat & Grill, we believe a pristine barbecue is the key to legendary outdoor gatherings. Here’s how to keep it in prime condition.

What is the Best Way to Clean a Weber Q?

Picture your Weber Q as the shining jewel of your outdoor kitchen, basking in the Australian sun. The secret to that shine? Turn it on high for 15 minutes before cooking. This ritual isn’t just a warm-up; it’s your pre-cooking clean. As it heats, leftover residues turn to ash. Then, with a swift motion of a Weber grill brush, clear away the ashes. This pre-cook tradition guarantees a fresh start for every BBQ session. For that all over clean, use the Weber Q Cleaner for a perfect finish.

Can You Put Weber Q Grill Plates in the Dishwasher?

At Heat & Grill, we recommend a gentle touch. Your grill plates are made for the flame, not the dishwasher’s heat and moisture, which can harm them. Instead, hand-wash with warm, soapy water (avoid citrus-based detergents). This care extends the life of your Weber Q accessories, except for the pizza stone, which is indeed dishwasher-safe. Treat it as a moment of mindfulness in your BBQ routine.
