Infresco Hotplates

Mild steel is considered better to cook on because it has several properties that make it suitable for cooking.

Firstly, it is a good conductor of heat, which means that heat is evenly distributed across the surface of the barbeque , allowing for consistent cooking. Especially when filled with 8 steaks, you want to caramelise the sealing and not have any drops in temperature.

Secondly, it is durable and has a long lifespan as its welds are tightly sealed, making it a cost-effective option in the long run, as we put a limited lifetime warranty on it.

Thirdly, it is relatively non-reactive, which means that it does not react with acidic foods and does not alter the taste of the food being cooked. Additionally, mild steel is easy to clean and maintain, which makes it a practical choice for your outdoor kitchen.

Easy step by step cleaning guide 

  1. Allow the hotplate to cool down completely. Do not attempt to clean it while it is still hot.

  2. Remove any remaining food or debris from the surface of the hotplate using a scraper or spatula.

  3. Mix warm water with a small amount of dish soap in a bucket.

  4. Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the soapy water and use it to wipe down the surface of the hotplate. Pay extra attention to any areas with stubborn stains or grease build-up.

  5. Rinse the hotplate with clean water, removing all soap residue.

  6. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to dry the hotplate completely.

  7. If necessary, you can use a vineger to treat any hard spots on the hotplate. Simply apply white vinegar in a circular motion with a green scrubber and rinse the hotplate thoroughly after use.

  8. Apply a thin layer of vegetable oil to the surface of the hotplate, using a clean cloth or paper towel. This will help prevent surface rust and keep the hotplate in good condition.

  9. Put the lid on the hotplate until you are ready to use it again.
