Cooking grates serve as a steady and reliable place to put your cookware. Usually made of heavy-duty steel, they are ideal for setting your aluminum, stainless steel or iron pot or pan over a campfire. The grates come in all sizes. They are easily portable and most of them fold for convenient storage and transporting.
There are many factors to consider when purchasing outdoor cooking grates. Maintenance, material, durability, size and cost should all influence your decision in choosing a new cooking grate. There are many different types of grates for outside cooking. Sizes range from tiny grates for barbecues and outdoor cooking stoves, to enormous campfire cooking grates. Options are numerous so you should have no problem finding exactly what you need. Many leading companies such as Weber often offer grates of higher quality than the standard ones which they sell with new grills. As a general rule, it is usually a good decision to purchase stainless steel grates because they're lightweight and you don't have to worry too much about rust and regular maintenance.
A campfire grate can have multiple uses and can be used for campfires, backyard fireplaces and even in an indoor fireplace. Campfire grates can be used for grilling over a fire directly on the grate or used as a platform for cooking with pots and pans. They can also be used for heating water and many other uses.

A basic round (or square) metal grill grate, like the type sold for basic Weber-type kettle grills, is generally pretty lightweight and, because it is flat, does not take up much room. You can find these replacement grills just about anywhere grills are sold. Many round grates are even made to fold in half or one end folds down.
