This time of a year is a grill time, it is fun to grill during summer time. Even though your counter-top grill is labeled “nonstick” the burnt-on grease and food bits tells a different story.

To speed through cleanup sans scrubbing, unplug the grill then place three dampened paper towels in between the metal plates while appliance still warm and then close the lid.

As you enjoy your meal, the wet paper towels and hot metal will create steam that loosens stuck on grime, so just one post-dinner swipe with a clean paper towel is all it takes to reveal a spotless surface. Sounds like good idea right!
