OCI Replacement Cooking Grate For Infrared Burner Zone.

On the OCI E36 and E48 models an infrared sear zone has been added to the design with the cooking grates that work best with sear zone burners. Sear-zone cooking grates are designed to minimize mess and maximize flavor. The concave design of the cooking grids does not allow moisture to drip into the grill from food. The moisture in the channels of the grates is vaporized by the intense direct heat from the infrared burner. The vaporization of grease, marinade, sauces and spices mixes with convectional air inside the cooking area to add flavor to food.

Not The OCI Infrared Grill Grate.

Unfortunately OutDoor Concepts has changed their cooking grate design on the Elite 36 and 48 Inch models so the concave infrared cooking grate is no longer fabricated.

This original cooking grate was designed for the infrared sear burner. High Quality thinner stainless steel channels do not conduct too much of the direct infrared pressurized heat. Concave channels protect the burner from grease, dripping sauces and marinades by vaporizing this moisture in the stainless grate channels

New cooking grids for the OCI Elite models are wider per piece which allows the infrared cooking grate to be disposed-of. Most of us do not love this change because heavy gauge stainless grates on top of an infrared burner get far too hot for cooking, do not add flavor and do not protect the ceramic burrner top.

Whats Worse is OCI cannot keep up with demand -- Even if we wanted the New grate design, OCI is not actually manufacturing either grates.

The New OCI Infrared Grilling Grates are still concave And the New Design is fabricated from a single solid piece of stainless steel so there are so welds and no rattling grids any where!!

Infrared cooking grates are not rounded and are Not "U" shaped. The V-channel design is Very Simple To Clean -- and Clean Grates Do Not Rust or Corrode! To scrape the V channel, we do have a perfectly formed V channel scraper that is made for cleaning these grates but the corner-edge of a typical scraper will work just as well.

Concave V channel grill grids fabricated with cast stainless steel. The cast stainless will last forever when treated properly. Picture showing Grid on OCI-E48.

Concave cooking grates are fabricated with a slight incline so heavy moisture will move across the grid for better vaporization but also to prevent grease fires and flare-ups. These cooking grates are the best design on the planet right now for infrared burners.
