The Arteflame insert is a perfect replacement for your Weber style grill. It has the added bonus of being able to cook seafood, steaks and burgers as well!

Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron

Why use carbon steel cooktops rather than  cast iron?  What is the difference and why is carbon steel any better?

Carbon Steel and Cast Iron are very similar.  This is why both are very good for cooking and grilling.  The main difference is that Carbon Steel contains about 1% Carbon while Cast Iron contains 2% - 3% Carbon.  This difference might not sound like much but the carbon effects the grain structure of the metal.  As the Carbon gets added to the steel mix, Carbon has a tendency to clump together into lumpy carbides and form pockets of pure carbon (graphite).  When this happens, the metal becomes very hard and very brittle.  It disrupts the grain of the metal, making it irregular, brittle and prone to cracking.  This is the reason why Cast Iron often cracks or breaks.  When Cast Iron is heated unevenly, the heat differential causes stress in the metal as the thermal expansion is uneven.  When this stress encounters a pocket of carbon, Cast Iron cracks.  This is also why Cast Iron often breaks when it is dropped.  The area of high carbon is extremely brittle and can’t stand the shock.

Because Carbon Steel has only 1% Carbon, this phenomena is negligible and much easier to control and prevent from happening.  The grain structure in Carbon Steel is very uniform and virtually impervious to heat stress or shock.  In addition to this, Carbon Steel is “rolled” in the steel mill.  It is forced between heavy rollers while the steel is hot.  After rolling the steel and getting it to the right thickness, the steel is “doused” with cold water that causes the grain structure to freeze in place.  This makes Carbon Steel very strong and the choice material to cook on.  Even with uneven heat loads or dropping Carbon Steel, it will not break or crack.  This allows for a lifetime of use.

The larger the surface area and the thinner the material, the more prone Cast Iron is to cracking and breaking.  In a grill, the heat is never uniform.  This makes cast Iron an especially poor choice for grill inserts.  For this reason, all Arteflame cooktops, inserts, griddles and Burger Pucks are made of Carbon Steel.

      Arteflame 22” Weber insert

      I love the ability to have a griddle for my charcoal grill. I’ve been sautéing vegetables like crazy on it! The smash burgers are so good! It literally takes 1 minute to grill the patty when you get the temperature right. I’ve even made eggs and bacon on my Weber charcoal grill since I purchased the Arteflame insert. It was very easy to season and the cleanup is easy as long as you do it when the surface is still hot. Just clean it, re 𝙾𝚒𝚕 it and it’s ready for the next adventure.

      Steaks, veggies, burgers, bacon, chicken! I can cook it all on the 18” Weber insert.

      I wanted it for so long

      Well I did it. I cannot tell you how long I have waited to buy this. From the first time I saw this I knew I just had to have it. I built a special stand for it so I matched the decor of my backyard and this item is a must have for anyone that loves the outdoors and likes entertaining. Everyone loves it, but most of all me! Now it's time to accessorize with some Arteflame items. The rotisserie is next on my list. Thank you Arteflame!!!

      Perfect addition

      I love this insert. I have a pellet smoker and a gas grill, and this adds to both of them. I love being able to reverse sear my smoked meats and also do things like smashburgers. Highly recommend to everyone.

      Game changer for our grill!!

      We have a Weber ranch, the largest kettle grill they make. We bought this Arteflame insert for that grill and we are extremely pleased with its performance. It has revolutionized our family’s grilling experience. We are a family of 6 and there is plenty of space to cook up our full meals. We love the versatility of using alternative fuel sources (charcoal, split firewood, and hardwood lump charcoal). It’s allowed us to cook hibachi style, which is amazing. Thanks!
