What is the difference between cast iron grates and the stainless steel ? We have used several cast iron ones from home depot and they fall apart after one year.

Our Answer:

Cast iron grates are generally not as durable as diamond or stainless steel grates. The metal is inherently more brittle and can crack after a short time of use under high temperatures. The grade of iron can also make a difference. Many cast iron grates are made overseas out of very porous metal that degrades quickly. Diamond steel and stainless steel grates are much stronger and can last for many seasons of hard use. These grates do not radiate heat as well as the cast iron models, but the extra longevity of the grate is a good payoff.
