After a long summer filled with many cookouts, how are your grilling tools holding up? While the grill is your most important asset for cooking outdoors, a good grill brush is probably second. The right tool keeps your grill clean and your food healthier. Check your brush periodically and replace it when it shows wear and tear or if it becomes difficult to clean. I researched the best brushes out there. Here is a list of the Seven Best Grill Brushes Of 2019 (So Far). The options have been assessed on functionality, durability, price, product guarantees, and other online grill brush reviews. Each item is a best seller and is marked as Amazon’s Choice in at least one category. Treat yourself to a new brush and fire up the barbecue this weekend. Happy Grilling!

The wide stainless steel brush allows users to clean large and small surfaces quickly and efficiently. The short sides of the brush are effective for tending to edges and dislodged debris between the grates of your grill. It measures 12 x 0.8 x 1.2 inches and weighs 12.2 ounces. Thick bristles make this tool wear resistant. Plus, the ergonomic handle gives you control and leverage for optimum cleaning. Recent reviewers call it the “best grill cleaner.” They also say it “works perfectly,” “takes stuck-on stuff off of your grill,” and has an “excellent shape for grill scraping.”  Customers have also raved about the durability of the product, saying, “if you turn the brush on end it fits nicely in between the openings on the cast iron Weber grill grate. Only been using a month and have not lost bristles yet”.

2. The Grillart Grill Brush and Scraper is Amazon’s Choice for Grill Brush.  This product is a 3 in 1 tool. The woven stainless steel brush has a unique design. It measures 18 x 3 x 4 inches and weighs 12.6 ounces. According to the manufacturer, it is an improved design over last year’s best-selling tool. It has a 360 degree rotating mechanism and a reinforced handle that has users cleaning their grills five times faster than other brushes.

Comments include “artfully cleans perfectly!” “awesome,” and “great tool to have.” Some have also claimed, “this works even better than my previous one did, getting between the grates and taking half the time. The scraper is great for getting that top layer of gunk off if you have been grilling something with a sauce or marinade. I can’t recommend this item enough”!  Grillart tops most online lists for best grill brushes this year. 

3. The Alpha Grillers Grill Brush is Amazon’s third best selling grill brush. They denote it as the best cleaner for pit barbecues.  It made every list for best grill brushes out there right now. The durable tool measures 17.5 x 3 x 3.5 inches and it is lighter than the other tools weighing only 11.2 ounces. It contains ultra heavy duty rustproof stainless steel bristles that are incredibly effective on all grilling surfaces. Not sold? No worries. The company offers a 100% lifetime money back guarantee. You can’t beat that on any product! With about 1,600 reviews, the tool rates 4.7 out of 5 stars. Purchasers say it is a “powerful brush,” “highly recommended,” and “the best yet.”  Alongside this, some have also said, “I bought this brush with no real expectations. My Weber grill is 9-10 years old and hasn’t been treated very well other than the occasional quick scrub with some balled up tinfoil. But I did my best to put it to good use and was pleasantly surprised. Overall it performed well and I was awarded with fresh metal grids for future grilling”.

4. The Best BBQ Grill Brush also attained Amazon Choice status. The Best brand tool measures 17.9 X 5.9 X 2.2 inches and is another lightweight at 11.2 ounces. Like the others, it works on all grilling surfaces and is built to last. The tool is 3 brushes in one. The woven steel design and extra torque provides re-enforcement. Per Best, this brush will not bend or break. Like Alpha Grillers, the Best company offers a lifetime full refund guarantee. With over 1,200 reviews, the product maintains a 4.6 out of 5-star rating. Recent purchasers state the “bristles are very stiff,” “it’s awesome for scraping food,” and it is an “excellent product.” This is the least expensive option.  Customers also have left other great reviews like, “my husband attended a meat smoking class and the teacher recommended a twisted wire style like this product. It is very superior to those bbg brushes that have wires imbedded in wood or plastic. We have found those wires sitting loose on the grill and even once in the food. The construction of this brush makes it much more safe to use. He loves the amount of service it covers and we plan to order one for our son”.

5. The Kona Safe/Clean Grill Brush is Amazon’s Choice for Non-Bristle Brushes. Kona is a renowned name in grill brushes. Their 360 Clean model tops many brush lists. This model is a popular best-selling alternative for those who want the Kona brand without the sharp edged bristles. The brush is made from hard-wired stainless steel that is wound and curled around the head of the brush, ensuring no lost bristles.

In particular, one customer left overwhelmingly great review this product, saying, “we had issues with bristles in our food in the past and so I thought I would buy this for my husband to try. I am glad I did. It has been 2 weeks – not a day gone by that he hasn’t made a comment about it. He says his Traeger has never been so clean, it is super easy to scrub the grill, he loves this scrubber etc., etc. I am happy he is happy with it”.
