Last week, I was sent a ManGrate starter set. ManGrate is a cast-iron cooking grate for your grill. Each grate weighs 8 pounds, is 15-inches long by 4 1/4 inches wide and measure 1 3/8 inches thick, & cooks using radiant heat. You place them sided by side, and can use lay them horizontally or vertically. The set I received had two grates and a cleaning brush.
I was very interested in trying these out since we do so much cooking on our smoker grill. I surprised my husband with them as an early Father’s Day gift & he was very eager to use them right away. I picked up two inexpensive steaks at the store. They were medium thickness and usually end up a little tough no matter how you cook them. After seasoning the grates (which only took about 10 minutes), my husband seasoned the steaks and tossed them on.
We normally cook steaks medium rare so they didn’t take too long. My husband said right away that the steaks didn’t stick at all and had beautiful grill marks. Once they were plated, I took the first bite. I couldn’t believe the taste! They were cooked perfectly, retained all of the juice, & were delicious. You would have never thought that they were cheap steaks. My husband already wants to pick up a few more grates so that we have a larger cooking surface.
Overall, these are phenomenal! They made a huge difference with how the steaks turned out. The kit we got is $82.99 (+ shipping), and is totally worth it. You can buy additional grates starting at $29.99 (+ shipping). In fact, right now you can save 10% off you ordered using the code MGREVIEW. You can purchase the grates at the ManGrate website.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
