What is the reason for the V-shaped grilling grids?

AA-00186

The V-shape grilling grids are an integral feature of the Solaire Infrared grilling system.  They:

1) catch drippings and vaporize the juices back into your meat to keep as much flavor as possible; 

2) control the amount of drippings that do fall onto the burner surface to avoid quenching (extinguishing) the flame and reducing the infrared effect; and

3) minimizes flare-ups.

All Solaire V-shape grilling grids are made from stainless steel and should always be used in the V configuration.
