Restoring a BBQ? Start here

BBQ Care


  • If corrosion starts, it should be removed as soon as possible to restore the integrity of the finish to its original condition.
  • Use a scrubber that is as soft as possible. Try nylon or plastic type scrubbers and build up to ‘stainless’ steel wool, only if necessary. Do not use normal steel wool.
  • Test the scrubber in an inconspicuous area first to ensure that it does not mark or scratch the finish.
  • Scrub carefully but firmly, only in the direction of the polish lines or ‘grain’ of the surface. Any resulting scratches can be blended back into the finish by gently rubbing with the grain, gradually decreasing pressure as you move away from the scratch

Polish & Rust Prevention

Prevention of rust is a more efficient way of protecting stainless steel. 3MTM Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish is an easy-to-apply product that is ideal for stainless steel, chrome, laminated plastics and aluminium surfaces. With a high gloss formula, it wipes clean with no streaks or build-up, helping to resist fingerprints and creating a barrier to surface contaminants. Always use a soft polishing cloth to bring the barbeque back to its original condition.
