Can I use a stainless steel skillet instead of a griddle?

Yes! You can buy stainless steel pans or make your own from the pieces of aluminum you cut from a beer can. Cooking directly on the pan also allows you to remove any debris that may have accumulated on the grill.

The aluminum coating on a stainless steel griddle can be removed by scrubbing with mineral spirits. A clean metal hook scraper works well. It can also be made from a plastic bottle or a plastic screw cap. I’ve used both methods and they have worked well.

The other way is to use the dishwasher. Let your grill cool down for at least an hour before cleaning with your dishwasher.

If the griddle has a gasket, be sure not to touch the rubber gasket until the grill is cold before starting the dishwasher.

Why is my Blackstone griddle rusting?

Look for rust spots, which can be caused by one or more of the following:

1) Overflowing water

This could be the result of too much water. Find the source of the water in your cooking zone and reduce it. If you can’t find the source of the water in your cooking zone, look for a current of clean water somewhere outside of your cooking zone. Clean water tends to flow down from the city into your zone.

2) Mineral deposits

The rust is the result of minerals being deposited on the metal surfaces. That’s why you’re seeing the rust in the right places in your griddle. The minerals are coming off of the surface of the food.

Before and after Rust, if your griddle is rusty before the installation and the stir plate has to be replaced. It can happen without the rust coming out, it is usually due to the heat exposure of the metal parts of the frying pan and not rust buildup.

This is momentary rust. Since the rest of the cookware is dishwasher safe, you should clean all that rust out. My skillet came with a drying rack, but they don’t seem to be available anymore.

I put the red element in and not a second one.

Replace the metal stir plate, bowl, and stirrer every 3 months to help maintain the dishwasher safe quality of your cooker.
