what's best for the plates and the stainless fascia ?
Degreaser works great on the fascia , just not a good idea to use it while cooking...

The plates are pretty easy to clean once you work it out.

I just take them off, sit them on the sink and yell out to mum to clean them. I find them not long after sitting on the edge of the BBQ nice and clean ready to slot back into place, to easy.

Hang them off a tree or stand them up facing the sun on a hot day. Works for me.

don't clean them, you take all the flavour off!!
Just scrape all the crap off them once you're fininshed with them for the night.

If you're about to cook on it, get the heat on for a bit, scrape as much off as you can, then turn off the heat and wipe it down with a bit of folded paper towel to get the grit off. Sometimes a little oil on the towel helps to give it some adhesion.

If they are really ugly, as above, but then get them in the kitchen and let loose with oven cleaner.

I'll second what Swordsy said. A quick clean after your finish then it will be ready for next time. I have a stainless hood on mine and have found that oven cleaner is good for keeping that clean.

i just scrape the plates clean with a metal egg flip and the like, once thats done, i give it a quick spray with canola in a can to stop the plates from rusting,

to clean the staino use windex, works really well
