Just as you would do with any household appliance, it's important to keep it properly cleaned. Clean after each use and thoroughly clean the outsides several times during the season. You don't need to purchase any expensive creams or scrubs. The best solution is to clean with soap and water.
Make sure to disconnect the tank before cleaning stove. You may spray the stove with a degreaser and/or use a garden hose. You can also wipe it down with a damp rag or soapy sponge (or scrub brush). You may get the stove completely wet with out damaging it. It is best to clean the stove after every use. Allow stove and burners to dry completely before use.
To clean your racks, consider purchasing accessories like brushes. Keep it clean and ready for the next feast. A non-abrasive bbq cleaning brush is perfect for stainless steel cooking surfaces. You simply pull the brush over the caked on grease and burnt food stuck on the racks until all visible debris is gone. The heat will warm the racks and sanitize them.
For the loose ashes that fall, consider purchasing an ash sweep cleaning system which eliminates ash build-up after longer events: ashes pass through 8" diameter opening into ash catcher for easy removal. With these tips and some common sense, you can prolong the life of your grill and enjoy seasons of awesome outdoor cooking.
