Understanding our criteria when evaluating these products will help you make a better purchasing decision. We used the following testing categories on every product we evaluated, which led us to our three top selections.
Strength: The head of the grill brush itself has to be strong enough to withstand some force applied on it. Grill grates have different patterns on them, and some require the brush to be moved at different angles to ensure every inch gets cleaned. When you apply some force to get the toughest food particles off of the grill, you need a brush that won’t bend or break.
Quality: Cheap grill brushes may only be good enough for one or two uses. It’s understandable that no grill brush is made to last forever, but even the avid griller should be able to get multiple uses out of a brush. This means the bristles should remain intact longer, the brush head won’t rust easily and the handle is thick enough to make you feel comfortable and confident when using it.
Durability: Grill cleaning brushes take a lot of abuse with every cleaning. If you don’t have a durable brush, the handle could snap, the head could pop off, the bristles could be left behind and more. Durability simply means the brush can handle this type of abuse repeatedly and still deliver great performance and easy cleaning.
