ONE OF THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WE GET FROM CLIENTS WHEN THEY GET PRICING ON OUR BRAAIS: Why should you buy a braai made in stainless steel rather than just getting a cheaper mild steel one and replacing it when the cheaper one has had its day ?
Well, we do understand that there is a price difference between a mild steel braai and one of the braai's that we make in stainless steel.
The one point that we normally mention is that the braai you are thinking about buying is more of an investment than just a buy and discard product..
The material is a solid all the way through metal and not a thin layer of chrome on the surface and then a metal that will rust as soon and it gets heat or exposure to the weather, and therein lies another secret. Because it does not flake or rust it is a lot more hygienic to cook on.
Then there is the cleaning aspect. You are not going to scrape off the surface covering when you wash the grid or lower compartment to get off the cooking fats and coal residue. You may get a slight colour change due to the heat ( which is called "blueing" in technical terms but it is not going to damage the integrity of the metal..
To veer off topic a bit, I recently had a call from a client saying that he could not use our braai. I was concerned that there was something wrong with the drum braai that he had purchased and asked him what the problem was ? He replied "No not a problem, just this braai is so pretty it should be put up on the wall like a picture rather than being cooked on !"
The stainless steel we use in the manufacturing process is called 304 grade and is classified as a food grade stainless steel that can be used in the hospitality industry.
We also supply our braai's in a bright or mirror finish to make sure they are healthy and hygienic to cook on, with no hidden crevices and places for dirt and cooking residue to get trapped into.
