The original design for this grill tool was for our employees to use it to clean and service our customers grills. We needed a grill brush that would remove buildup and burnt food fast and would not fall apart break or need to be thrown away after a few uses. The grill tool is made of 304 stainless steel, with a hardwood handle and a heavy duty thick brush block with stainless bristles. The brush block can be replaced easily, but will probably last up to six years before it needs replaced. The ice melting feature and the weight of this tool really help to expertly clean and sanitize your grill.
