Couldn't find any Dawn PowR Dissolver locally and had to order some online. In the interim I have been scraping, using LA Cleaner, etc., to try and keep my Apex reasonably clean.

Well, the PD showed up today. I'm throwing everything else out. This stuff is the finest grease and soot dissolver I've ever seen. Excepting a few very powerful oven cleaners, I've never seen anything that cuts through crud and grease build up like this.

To way I was amazed is an understatement. My Apex is approaching the 175 meal mark (only 8 months old still) and now looks like a new unit again.

I found some Dawn Power Dissolver at WalMart--most stores had discontinued it. I bought 3 bottles and agree with Tom--when it comes to cleaning grease buildup on a stainless grill, I've never seen anything like it. Awesome.

How do you use it to clean your grill? Do you take the parts out or fill the steamer with water?

This time out I just sprayed it on the grill exterior. Let it sit for about 10 or 15 minutes then wiped it off, followed by a damp sponge rinse. Amazing how brilliant the stainless appeared - I guess I hadn't noticed how dull and smoke covered it had gotten.

I did a little work on the inside and was equally impressed. I took the cooking grid out and make a small pan from aluminum foil. Poured in just enough PowR Dissolve to barely cover the grid and let that set for 15 to 20 minutes then hosed it off. The grid sparkled.

This winter I may actually take a few parts off and really give it a good overall cleaning, but not sure it needs it.

To clean my drip pan I just steam a couple meals. That lifts off all the crud, but I supposed the PowR Dissolved would be equally effective on it, too.
