Unparalleled Quality with Attention to Detail

Why should you buy an Arteflame brand insert versus a less expensive  imitation? What makes Arteflame different?

  1. Arteflame only uses certified steel. This steel is cleaned, rinsed and is scale free. 
  2. When steel is made, an oxide layer referred to as “scale” appears. This is due to the scaly nature of its appearance that develops on the surface of the steel.  This scale contains all the impurities in the steel that come to the surface when the steel cools.  Arteflame uses an extensive cleaning process that removes any scale and all other impurities before we even start manufacturing.  This results in the smooth, clean Arteflame insert surface you see and grill on. 
  3. Arteflame steel then gets precision cut on expensive laser machines, wiped clean and oiled. This insures every Arteflame insert will have a smooth, food grade surface where no food particles can lodge and hide. 
  4. This step, while more expensive, ensures a top quality product that is immediately ready for cooking and also guaranteed to be food grade safe. 

Why is it so important to know what kind of steel you are cooking on?

Arteflame Steel vs Other Steel

  1. Almost all less expensive insert copies use regular steel because that way they can retail for a lot less than an Arteflame insert.  However, the scale and impurities that have not been removed are still there and will end up in your food. This scale is unsafe for human consumption. You certainly do not want this on the surface of your insert for it will leech directly into your food. 
  2. We are an American company with American values. We guarantee to take every measure to ensure you get a top quality insert that is food grade safe and will last you a lifetime.
  3. Arteflame is committed to making top quality products.  We guarantee that none of our inserts contain lead, unlike other brands who use porcelain coated grills, grill grates and griddles. 
  4. We guarantee that our inserts will not break or crack when dropped like cast iron inserts and we guarantee they do not contain Cadmium like chrome plated grill grates do. 
  5. We are proud to manufacture in the US to the highest health standards.
  6. We are so confident you’ll love grilling Arteflame style that when you’re ready to purchase an Arteflame grill, we will refund you your insert purchase.  Welcome to the Arteflame family!

Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron

  1. Carbon Steel and Cast Iron are very similar.  This is why both are very good for cooking and grilling.  The main difference is that Carbon Steel contains about 1% Carbon while Cast Iron contains 2% - 3% Carbon.  This difference might not sound like much but the carbon effects the grain structure of the metal.  
  2. As the Carbon gets added to the steel mix, Carbon has a tendency to clump together into lumpy carbides and form pockets of pure carbon (graphite).  When this happens, the metal becomes very hard and very brittle.  It disrupts the grain of the metal, making it irregular, brittle and prone to cracking.  This is the reason why Cast Iron often cracks or breaks.  
  3. When Cast Iron is heated unevenly, the heat differential causes stress in the metal as the thermal expansion is uneven.  When this stress encounters a pocket of carbon, Cast Iron cracks.  This is also why Cast Iron often breaks when it is dropped.  The area of high carbon is extremely brittle and can’t stand the shock.
  4. Because Carbon Steel has only 1% Carbon, this phenomena is negligible and much easier to control and prevent from cracking breaking or chipping.  The grain structure in Carbon Steel is very uniform and virtually impervious to heat stress or shock.  
  5. In addition to this, Carbon Steel is “rolled” in the steel mill.  It is forced between heavy rollers while the steel is hot.  After rolling the steel and getting it to the right thickness, the steel is “doused” with cold water that causes the grain structure to freeze in place.  This makes Carbon Steel very strong and the choice material to cook on.  Even with uneven heat loads or dropping Carbon Steel, it will not break or crack.  This allows for a lifetime of use.  
  6. In contrast, anything made of cast iron must be small in surface area. This is because the larger the surface area and the thinner the material, the more prone Cast Iron is to cracking and breaking.  As a consequence cast iron is NOT a good choice for grills, inserts or any large surface product. This is why Arteflame only uses Carbon steel which will last a lifetime. 
  7. In a grill, the heat is never uniform.  This makes cast Iron an especially poor choice for grill inserts.  For this reason, all Arteflame cooktops, inserts, griddles and Burger Pucks are made of only Carbon Steel.

New toy

We have a big green egg that my hubby loves, so I thought this would be a great addition to our outdoor cooking ensemble. I actually brought it inside and seasoned it on my Wolf range to get the heat high enough. The first time I tried to season it on the Weber, the heat was just not high enough. The stove top method worked fine with the exhaust fan on high. Now it looks llike it is ready to get cooking!

Important Information

Note: When your insert arrives, the cooktop will be silver (unseasoned). It will develop the dark color shown in the images once it has been seasoned and used several times.

Seasoning Your Arteflame

When cooking oil is subjected to high heat, the long chains of fat molecules break down into short-chain polymers that bond with the cooktop and form a glaze. This is seasoning. It is smooth and non-stick, similar to Teflon. It also forms a natural barrier between air and the steel, acting as the first line
of defense against rust. Looking at the Arteflame carbon steel cooktop under a microscope, the surface is actually porous and these pores open when the cooktop heats up. Seasoning bakes right into these pores, filling them in and smoothing them out. This is what produces the even, slick, seasoned surface. Over time, as layer after layer of seasoning builds up, the cooktop becomes completely seasoned as the seasoning securely bonds to the previous layers and the steel.

How to Season Your Arteflame

The Arteflame seasoning pucks are formulated specifically for seasoning the cooktop and make it easy. You can also season your Arteflame cooktop very simply with regular use! Every time you grill and heat oil or fat for an extended period of time on the cooktop, you have the opportunity to add a thin, durable layer of seasoning. These thin layers build on each other like coats of paint on a wall, slowly but surely forming a resilient, ultra-slick surface. Using the seasoning pucks make this process easy. When it comes to good seasoning that lasts, we can’t stress the importance of thin layers enough. Compare it to thick coats of paint on a windowsill; once air and moisture sneak past the surface and work their way down to the wood beneath, those coats will start to peel off like a giant scab. On your cooktop, thick layers of seasoning will scrape off in the same way. Only the thin layers, molecularly bonded to the cooktop and each other will stand the test of time.

When you fire up your Arteflame the first few times, it can be hard to get the cooktop to season evenly. What and how you cook as well as hot spots on your cooktop will influence how the initial coats of seasoning form. They can appear in patches rather than a perfectly even layer. Patchy seasoning is perfectly fine, it allows layers of seasoning to interlock and strengthen
each other forming a truly durable layers of seasoning.

For best results, gradually heat up the cooktop to bake the seasoning into the surface, not just on top of it. To season, you need to reach the smoking temperature of the oil. At this point the oil breaks down into carbon and short-chain polymers that bond with the steel. If the cooktop is too cold for the oil to smoke, the oil won’t polymerize and won’t bond to the cooktop. If the cooktop is too hot, the oil will skip past the polymer stage and go straight into completely burnt carbon. Thus it is key to heat up your cooktop slowly and apply the oil before it starts to smoke.

Best Oils for Seasoning

The Arteflame seasoning pucks are formulated specifically for seasoning the cooktop. If you don’t have one, then the best fat polymerization comes from oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids like Grapeseed Oil. These compounds thicken and harden once exposed to air. Saturated fats like lard and coconut oil don’t work well as they don’t open sufficient bonding points for carbon molecules to adhere to the molten polymers. Flaxseed oil can be brittle and prone to flaking. Grapeseed Oil strikes the best balance.

To start seasoning, pour a tiny amount of grapeseed oil onto your cooktop and spread it evenly using a paper towel. You only need a very little bit, just enough to evenly coat the cooktop with a very thin film. That’s it—no more oil than that. Wipe off any excess oil so the cooktop looks almost dry. It might not look like much but that is plenty of oil to form a perfect super-thin layer. This is exactly what you want. Your goal is to bake a layer of seasoning into the cooktop, not on top of it!

Avoid Acidic Foods

Tomatoes, wine, citrus, and vinegar can eat away the seasoning, so keep the tomato sauce away from your cooktop. Once your cooktop is properly seasoned, a little acid here and there is not a problem. Just be aware that acidic foods like lemons, tomatoes, wine and vinegar will penetrate the seasoning and will leave your cooktop looking patchy and/or with rust spots. Make sure you wipe away acid foods and apply oil to avoid this.
