My husband is a self-declared "King Of the Grill". He takes his grilling very seriously and has all of his must-have tools lined up. He acts as if he's a brain surgeon when grilling. He has a very special way of cleaning his grill and a particular way of grilling. He won't even let me prep the meat. I was a little hesitant when I received Alpha Grillers Grill Brush. Like I said, my hubby is very picky and not keen on changing things-even the grill brush. I twisted his arm and convinced him to give this brush a try. He did and when he walked in the house with a smile on his face, I knew we had a keeper. This brush is 18" long. The handle is made of twisted steel, reinforced with a tough, plastic outer case. It's easy to grip and hold. The length is perfect for cleaning, especially with heat. You can keep a safe distance while scrubbing the grill. The bristles are stainless steel. They do a great job at cutting through grit and grime. It gets into the tough corners and helps to loosen & scrape away all of the tough stuff. This is a very durable, heavy duty brush.
