How lava stone grill work
Lava stones in the grill heat the food to be grilled. The flame does not reach the food directly, because the stones only pass on the heat evenly. In contrast to charcoal or briquettes in conventional grills, lava stones heat up very quickly. It typically takes 10 to 15 minutes to heat a lava stone grill. Lava stone grills are operated using either electricity or gas. The use of propane gas is advantageous if the grill is to be used independently of the location, since a fixed connection is not required. When using natural gas or electrical energy, you are dependent on the appropriate connections.
The lava stones used in lava stone grills come from extinct volcanoes in the Vulkaneifel. They are basically cooled, hardened lava. The stones are located between the gas burners/heating rods and the cooking grate and are heated by the selected heat source. Thanks to the lava stones, even heat radiation is possible, and the temperature can also be controlled more easily and precisely.
The advantages of a lava stone grill
A lava stone grill offers several advantages in gastronomy. The taste level of the grilled food, which is similar to that of a charcoal grill, is convincing. Meat juice or fat drips onto the lava stones and gives the ingredients extra flavor. In contrast to the charcoal grill, however, there are no flames that could char the food, and therefore no smoke with toxic gases. The lava stone grill also allows easy and precise control of the temperature. Lighting the grill and controlling the temperature is also easier than with a charcoal grill. Due to the storage effect of the lava stones, the fuel is used very efficiently in gas grills. It is also possible to gently prepare delicate foods and dishes. Thanks to the even heat distribution in the lava stones, hot spots are avoided.
However, lava stone grills also have a few disadvantages. The cleaning of the lava stones is quite complex. In addition, they must be replaced regularly to ensure consistent grilling quality. Lava stone grills are also more expensive to buy compared to gas grills and many charcoal grills.
Harmless to health
Lava Stone Grills have no negative health effects when used correctly. However, if the heat is not properly controlled, it can cause burns. As for the lava stone, there is no risk that it will leach harmful substances into the food. The lava rock is heated to a very high temperature to clean it before being placed in the grill.
How to clean a lava stone grill
To clean the grill thoroughly, you should not use aggressive chemical cleaning agents. Hot water is usually sufficient to clean the stones. They are boiled in a large pot of water to loosen dirt. A little gentle washing-up liquid helps against particularly stubborn grill residues. After boiling, you should rinse the stones thoroughly to remove any detergent residue. It is best to do this two or three times and then lay the stones in the sun to dry. If water and washing-up liquid are not enough, you can also boil the stones with vinegar water. You should also rinse the stones thoroughly with water afterwards so that no vinegar taste gets into the ingredients the next time you grill. It is actually also possible to clean lava stones in the dishwasher. A short program is usually sufficient.
Cleaning a lavas tone barbecue properly
It is advisable to check and clean the lava stones regularly. This significantly extends their lifespan. Fresh dirt is usually easier to remove because it is not yet firmly attached to the lava stone. Regular cleaning is also important to remove the fat dripping from the grilled food. The combination of heat on the lava stones and burnt-in fat can form harmful substances that can be transferred to the food to be grilled.
