    i dunno... maybe i should give them another try. I also have the mentality that if a steak has grill marks, great. if not, i don't really care, as long as it tastes good.

    Grill marks are more than just appearance. they are the result of the Maillard process taking place which is what yields the deep beef flavor of a well seared steak.

    The Okie is wise Blue Dawg

    Seriously, another nice feature of CI grates is the nice flavor you get when they have been seasoned for a while. Kind of like an old CI skillet or a dutch oven

    Not to mention the non stick properties.

    To make the CI grates last, just keep a can of Pam handy and after a hot fir, give the grates a quick spray after the grates have cooled down a bit.
