Grate Scrape

Tell us a little bit about Great Scrape.

"Great Scrape has been around for 10 years. This past July was our 10-year anniversary. Great Scrape was started in a garage. The company is owned by three brothers and their close friend. The first year they started creating the product, they applied to be a vendor at the Minnesota State Fair, and got in. They have been growing and expanding ever since."

Describe your product.

"The Great Scrape is an all-natural BBQ cleaning tool and wood grill scraper. It is an alternative to the old metal wire brush. It has custom grooves to uniquely fit your barbecue grill without having to worry about metal bristles or harming your grill grates. It is made of solid premium hard wood and is designed for years of grilling pleasure.  It makes for the perfect grilling accessory or BBQ gift. How it works:

1. Get The Grill Hot - To start the grooving process, ensure your grill is hot (high heat allows the grooves to form quickly).
2. Work Back and Forth - Using slow firm pressure, pass the Great Scrape front to back on the hot grates.
3. Repeat - Align the previously formed grooves to the grates ensuring that only ONE good set of grooves are formed.  Once grooves have formed high heat is no longer necessary."

Besides holiday gifts, what are some of the occasions where Great Scrape makes a good gift idea?

"Great Scrapes are perfect for groomsmen gifts, Father’s Day, housewarming presents and for anyone who loves to BBQ."

 What was your takeaway from last year’s Des Moines Holiday Boutique?

"Holiday Boutique is a great place to find unique gifts for each person on your list. Walking around the show, you will find things you may not have been searching for online."   

What is your best holiday shopping advice?

"Don’t be afraid to buy the same gift twice." 

What do you most look forward to during the holidays?

"Spending time with family and friends."
