Food Safety and the Drip Tray

One of the Cinder Grill’s most ingenious features is its Drip Tray. This removable, washable tray catches all the juices and fats rendered out of the food, keeping everything neatly out of the way until you’re finished cooking.

So we thought we’d write a brief guide on how to keep and enjoy the contents of the drip tray.
