    Flat top cleaning

    I assume those who use them scrape them every day. How often do you clean them? When you clean them, do you clean to the point of needing to re-season?

    Clean at the end of every shift. Oil top & scrub with Griddle stone, wipe clean and then screen top to a polish, wipe top with oil + empty grease trap.
    Rinse-Wash-Repeat after every shift.

    I won't work without the Scotchbrite quick cleaning griddle system. No stone or physical scrubbing needed.

    Then just refill with http://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Brite-Q...+Clean+Griddle
    and http://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Brite-7...+Clean+Griddle as needed.

    my old crew used to get that flat top going and dump a gallon of white vinegar on it and scrape it down. season it and then dump a box of salt on it and cook it for 15 minutes. they would then scrape the salt off and wipe it all down with a oil soaked cloth and you were good to go. smooth as glass. Make sure you scrape the salt off into a metal container and don't get it on you. half molten salt sticks to everything and melts everything also.

    all of the above work for me. personally, i dont see the need for a well polished flat top. many cooks obsess over that stuff, and i dont it matters much really.

    Vinegar works great.

    Normally put some ice to cool it a tad

    Then vinegar

    Then water until it's shiny that's it
