MSE grate chrome peeling

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Was just washing one of the grates and noticed that the chrome is peeling already. Have used it less than a dozen times...really hope I am not on hold for an hour again. Cell phone is plugged in and charging....just in case. Think I may send the grate to a friend that powder coats.....

I guess one more reason not to clean your grates too good. Hahahaha.....

Not having a dishwasher I use a S/S parts brush and a Brillo  pad on mine. I try to keep them clean and have not noticed any pealing to date.

I am sure they very from one chrome run to another.  Jted

I washed my grates once in the dishwasher. Once. It was a hassle taking out the top rack (it was an older dishwasher) but there was no peeling of the chrome or whatever the grates are coated with. I strictly handwash them with a scrub sponge and hot soap and water. My MES 30 Gen 1 is three years old and everything's still in fine shape. But then I don't use it nearly as much as many other guys here.

I understand. I have some rust on my racks but it doesnt bother me.

I use Todd's mats and the work great. They reduce the amount of stuck food by 100% but they still need to be cleaned. Silicone cleans very easy.

The racks are covered in drippings and smoke. I like to get as much off as I reasonably can.Since I started using the mats cleanup is a lot easier.  Jted
