Frequently Asked Questions

How do I clean the unit?

– Our Gas Braais have sectionalised top grids to make cleaning a breeze. The easiest way to clean the grids, is to soak them in hot water and dish-washing liquid or vinegar, as soon as possible after grilling – before the marinade hardens. The top grids are also dishwasher safe.

-The Rocks can be burnt clean. By removing the

top grids and setting all burners to 'high' for an extra few minutes, when the braai reaches high temperature, shifting/aggitating the rocks above the burners will burn off excess fat.

-The Drip tray can be lined with foil to catch all the drippings, and removed when necessary.

-The Body of the grill can be cleaned with Diswashing liquid or vinegar and warm water. Please do not use any corrosive oven cleaners on your unit.









What guarantee comes with the unit?

– We offer a 3-year guarantee on our Braais and a 2-year guarantee on our Fireplaces from date of purchase. Our guarantee applies to all the working parts of the unit as well as the Stainless Steel body against factory defects.









Do Chad-O-Chef Gas Braais come with Rock or Flame Tamers?

All Chad-O-Chef grills are supplied complete with Rock or Radiants (Flame Tamers). Our Braais are ready for a Licensed Gas Installers connection to the gas supply.
