How to Clean Your Grill After Summer

If you’ve done much grilling over the summer, chances are your grill could use a good cleaning. Cooking on a dirty grill isn’t just unappealing, it’s also a safety hazard. Grease and bits of food built up on the grill can cause fires and negatively impact the taste of your food.

Whether or not you plan to continue grilling past the summer season, once the weather cools down it’s a good idea to take some time to clean off your grill. You’ll need to start by opening up your grill and pulling it apart.

Be sure the grill is cooled off and then open the hood and remove the grill gates. If your grill has heat diffusers over the burners be sure to take those out. You can use an old spatula or cheap putty knife to scrape the sides of the grill’s interior, sometimes called the grill box. Be sure to remove as much grease and as many food particles as possible.

If you have a gas grill, you’ll want to clean out the burner tubes with a steel wire or nylon brush. Brush from the center outward and clean sideways as opposed to up and down. Now you can reassemble the grill. You’ll want to turn it on and set it at the highest temperature and then close the hood. Some grills have a cleaning setting you can take advantage of.

After a few minutes, you’ll want to use a metal grill brush without bristles to scrape the grates. If you need to use a nylon brush be sure the grill is cold first. Now your grill is cleaned off and ready to go. You may want to change your habits slightly in order to prevent future buildup of grease and food particles.

You can try greasing the grates with a small amount of cooking oil just before cooking. Some people swear by using a raw onion on the grates before you start to grill. Use a grill brush without bristles to scrape the hot grates before and after you grill.

If your grill appears to be beyond repair or you want to start fresh, Hoersh Home Appliance has everything you need including propane, gas, and charcoal grills. We also offer grill accessories such as cleaners and brushes to keep your new grill clean and safe. Visit us today at 218 N. Division St. in Appleton, or give us a call at 920-733-4406 for more information.

How Much Does It Cost to Stock Your Refrigerator?

Even though it may be a bit painful when you see your total amount due at the grocery store checkout register, it feels good having a fully stocked refrigerator. For a large family, it can be quite expensive keeping the fridge full of essentials including food for meals and snacks.

For a family of four, the United States Department of Agriculture reports that it takes somewhere between $130 to $300 to stock up on food each week. Keep in mind that those numbers also include dry goods you’ll need throughout the week. Keep reading to learn how much each section of your refrigerator might cost to keep fully stocked, and where typical food items should be stored in your fridge.

Top Shelf
Your refrigerator’s top shelf is one of its warmer areas and should be reserved for items that won’t spoil too quickly. The average cost to stock the top shelf is $22, which includes items such as peanut butter and jelly, salsa, hummus, and fruit cups.

Middle and Lower Shelves
The middle shelf of your fridge is the coldest area and should be utilized to store foods susceptible to bacteria such as eggs, raw meat, and poultry. These shelves will cost you about $38 to stock, and that includes three dozen eggs, protein for each night of the week, and two gallons of milk.

You should be careful with what you store in your refrigerator’s door as this area can shorten the shelf life of certain food items. The best things to put there include butter, condiments, cooking oil, bottled water, soda, and juice. The average cost to fully stock your refrigerator door is about $45 a week as those condiments and drinks can add up.

Crisper Drawers
Each refrigerator should have at least one low-humidity and one high-humidity crisper drawer. The low-humidity drawer will cost about $40 to stock and should include fruits such as apples, grapes, and pears. The high-humidity drawer is where the veggies are at and will cost about $33 a week to stock with carrots, lettuce, broccoli, onions, bell peppers, spinach, and more.

Meat and Cheese Drawer
While the proteins you typically use for dinner would be stored on the middle shelve, items such as lunch meats and cheeses go down below in a drawer. These deli items can be expensive, and to stock your drawer with lunch meats, cheeses, bacon, and similar items it will set you back about $70.

As you can see, it’s not cheap to feed a family of four. An energy-efficient refrigerator can help you save on your electric bill each month, giving you more money to spend on much-needed groceries.
