Re: stainless steel vs porcelain-coated cast iron grate
I had stainless grates and everything always stuck until I let them get good and "seasoned" like cast iron. You can't really season stainless, so I guess it was just cruddy.
Now, I just like plain-old-carbon steel. Keeps seasoning just like cast iron and is bunches cheaper than stainless. I've never used porcelain coated, but it shouldn't rust unless the coating gets cracked or chipped.
