Finish Options

Hand-Oiled Finish

The beautiful mild steel construction arrives with a hand-oiIed finish that is easy to maintain for a lifetime of service by simply wiping down with additional coats of oil a couple of times per year. This oil coating is naturally hydrophobic and prevents moisture from contacting the steel to inhibit the formation of rust. When heated, this oil will oxidize and "bake" into the steel. This is the same process that is used when seasoning your Flat Top. Additional coats of linseed oil are easy and quick to apply to provide lasting protection that will never peel or crack like paint or powder coating. We also provide an optional weatherproof cover for the Cooking Base to provide additional protection.

Powder Coating

The Outdoor Cooking Base is available in black powder coating. Powder coating is a common high-quality coating applied by spraying fine particles of resin over a treated steel base that are baked on in an oven at high temperatures. This helps them bond and apply themselves to the metal, creating a thick, solid layer of coating. Powder coating is water and rust-resistant, as long as the coating stays intact. If something manages to scratch and open up the layer rust may develop.

FAQ

Can I store the Flat Top outdoors with my Cooking Base?

We do not recommend storing the Flat Top outdoors. To protect the cooktop from rust or corrosion we recommend storing the Flat Top indoors in a cool, dry location.

How do you control the cooking temperature?

The Cooking Base uses a single large "H" shaped burner to provide even heating. Cooking temperature is controlled by using the needle valve on the propane regulator to increase or decrease the flow of propane gas. Once you set the temperature where you want it you can leave the needle valve in that position and you won't have to adjust it again. For example, if you find opening the valve 1/2 way gives you a cooking temperature of 400 degrees you can leave it in that position from then on to achieve consistent and repeatable temperatures each time you cook.

Why is there no automatic ignition system on the Cooking Base

Automatic ignitors are the number one source of failure on outdoor grills. Because of the easy access to the burners with the design of the Cooking Base we opted for a foolproof manual lighting that works every time. Also, automatic ignitors are made exclusively overseas these days and we wanted to use as many American components as possible.

Will the Cooking Base rust?

The Cooking Base is made of mild steel that left untreated will begin to rust over time when exposed to moisture or humidity. To prevent this we provide two high quality options for your Cooking Base. With the hand-oiled finish the steel is coated in a layer of linseed oil. This oil coating is naturally hydrophobic and prevents moisture from contacting the steel to inhibit the formation of rust. When heated, this oil will oxidize and "bake" into the steel. This is the same process that is used when seasoning your Flat Top. Additional coats of linseed oil are easy and quick to apply to provide lasting protection that will never peel or crack like paint or powder coating. We also provide a weatherproof cover for the Cooking Base to provide additional protection.

The second finish option is black powder coating. Powder coating is water and rust-resistant, as long as the coating stays intact. If something manages to scratch and open up the layer rust may develop so any scratches or damage must be quickly repaired by painting over the damaged area or applying a layer of oil as described above.

Can the unit be plumbed to use natural gas?

The burner is compatible with both propane and natural gas. For additional information and to order the necessary components you can contact the burner manufacturer directly at www.easyfirepits.com
