Those cost more than I paid for my grill(on winter clearance)

I paid 110$ for a stok quattro.. would cost me 170+ for those grates.

I like flare ups. Makes everything taste flame kissed and makes the fat on steak taste wonderful.

This product seems like it turns your BBQ into an oven. I don't need multiple sources of clean dry heat.

I get that they are anodized but they is going to get damaged for sure if you use metal utensils, which you almost have to on a BBQ. I would not use them because they are made of aluminum.

I had something similar on a grill from MHP, they are called SearMagic and are excellent. Unfortunately I couldn't take the grill when I sold my home https://www.grillparts.com/MHP/jnr.asp?s...AiABEgIZEfD_BwE IIRC they give you wooden tools to clean the grates.

I use the copper mats instead. Made by the same people who make the copper skillet. Works great, easy to clean. Wife throws them in the dishwasher.

Those GrillGrates look like they could turn the cheapest gas grille into a real grate grille. I will remember these. I like to spell grille with an e.

Im confident they are good. I typically trust amazingribs.com for advice. However, i do feel they are heavily overpriced. I have an old BBQ and I just picked up some cheap grates from walmart for 5$ each that you just put on top of the cast iron grates, they dont replace the grates.

There is such a thing as anodized aluminum cookware that some people buy.

What's wrong with cast iron? Don't like the maintenance?

The maintenance was bad, the rust was worse. Brand new Sams Club $400 grill. I followed the seasoning instructions. Constantly spraying them, keeping them lubed up. But in the spring when I took the cover off they were rotted like a 54 chevy.

Flare ups are a big problem because of where the grill resides. So windy on my deck sometimes the burners blow out. So I was thinking these would help.

That was my concern as well. I heard somewhere aluminum was bad to cook on. But then I see expensive aluminum sets with famous names on them. Assume they would not want their name on a potentially dangerous cookware.

Rachael Ray Aluminum cookware set.

Given your rust problem during the Winter, perhaps storing just the grates in the garage would prevent rust? Covering metal with a non-breathable cover traps condensation and invites problems.
