Capital Range BBQ Grates Review – Curto’s Westchester County

Written by Appliance Dude | November 26th, 2014

Update 11/28/14 – We now have an image of what the stainless grates look like – see below


The first step in transforming yourself into an expert or authority is to admit that you don’t know everything. And when you come across new knowledge embrace it, savor it and SHARE it. So when I just found out that the Capital ranges ship with different grates on their models with BBQ’s I knew it was time to post here.

The Culinarian (open burner ranges) and their new dual fuel series will ship with the heavy-ass cast iron grates that you see pictured below. There is definitely an advantage in using cast iron with their 18K BTU infrared BBQ b/c that cast iron will get HOT. Certainly hotter than stainless and you need that HEAT in order to sear like the primal grilling animal you want to be.

If you purchase the Precision series ranges (sealed burner) and opt for a model with a BBQ you will receive channeled stainless grates. The fact that they are channeled is a good thing so as to handle the grease that comes off the food you are grilling. But let’s call it like it is – the cast iron is better than stainless!

This vantage point shows the channeled grooves on Capital's cast iron grates. Big help for grease management - the hole in the front will capture grease and send to drip pan.
