We’ve packed away our parkas, broken out the flip-flops, and made a bulk order of tiki umbrellas — and that can only mean one thing: Summer is here! Of course, breezy attire and gallons of rum aren’t the only great things about summer. We can’t wait to hit the beach, lay out in the park, and (best of all) get our grill on! Yep, grilling season is upon us, but before you slap a few steaks on, you’ll want to take stock of your grilling situation. Chances are, you haven’t popped the hood on your grill since last fall, and if you — like many of us — weren’t super diligent about cleaning and scraping your grates after each use, then you’re going to want to invest in some grilling gear that’ll help you knock off the burnt-on crusty bits that can turn a delicious tray of kebabs into a not-so-appetizing set of skewers. Recently, we stumbled upon this excellent grill brush from one of the most popular brands on the market: the Scrub Daddy BBQ Daddy Grill Brush. The best part? It’s on sale right now!

This sleek, multipurpose tool features a mesh foam cleaning head that hardens when dunked in cold water. All you have to do is soak the woven mesh cleaning head — made with a FlexTexture foam core — in cold water, then apply it to your preheated grill (at 300 degrees Fahrenheit) and marvel as the months of built-up food and debris disappear. “Like other Scrub Daddy brand scrubbers, the sponge head gets soft in hot water, but stays firm in cold water, and I knew I needed it to be firm for extra chisel power,” Danielle Centoni writes in her review of the BBQ Daddy. “I used the built-in metal scraper to clear away as much gunk as possible. Then I dipped the scrubby head in the bucket and swiped it across the grates. Immediately, it produced a cloud of steam and left a trail of truly sparklingly clean cast iron in its wake. Holy smokes! I thought. This thing really works!”

There’s also an easy-to-use metal scraper (for the toughest of charred-on food bits), a grate mover, and a bottle opener built right into the tool. And, you’ll get two additional refill heads included with your purchase. You’ll also have some added peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry about wooden or metal splinters ending up in your food, like you might with traditional grill scrubbers. So, if you’re itching to fire up the grill and kickstart the season of summertime feasts, make sure to snag the Scrub Daddy BBQ Daddy Grill Brush ASAP while it’s still on sale.
