FAQ’s

Should grill be oiled before grilling?

Before cooking, the grill grates should be greased. The oil will ensure improved and optimal performance, which is the cause for this. Additionally, you’ll be able to turn your food with ease and grill it with those typically pleasing cross-hatched grill markings.

How long does the chicken need to cook on grill?

The chicken must have enough time to fully cook inside without scorching on the outside.

How can paneer be kept off the grill without sticking?

Add some oil to the marinade, completely pre-oil the grilling grates, and wait until the paneer has started to brown before touching it to further prevent sticking.

Which oil is ideal for seasoning a grill?

Grill manufacturers frequently advise using canola or peanut oil because both have smoke points that are higher than 450° F. Additional choices include vegetable oil, sunflower oil, and avocado oil.
