    Although I like Prepsol (I've been using it for 40yrs), I don't rate it for baked-on oil/fat residue.

    I am going to try the LK stuff and see.

    Whow ....that is like 10% average inflation over 45 years!

    However the prepsol cleans my braai grid and has so much more applications for other cleaning jobs as well.

    Hands down one of the best cleaners in the world for a braai - it really does everything the OP says.

    I'm not familiar with Prepsol - and I've not seen it mentioned on this forum. R70-odd for 300 ml is possibly expensive compared to Prepsol but I'm happy paying this as it works. Especially since reading some of the responses after this post indicate that Prepsol might not be that effective. If I happen to come across some Prepsol I'll give it a bash, but I'm not going to go and look for it specifically. In the meantime, I'll stick to the LK's, as it works like a bomb. In my perception at any rate.

    I would be scared to use any kind of degreasing agent on braais etc.
    What if its poisonous.

    I'm not familiar with Prepsol, but it is apparently a "Water-based" degreaser. Which means it will be fine provided you rinse and wash after application,

    I'm pretty sure the "LK's Braai Cleaner" is probably also not fantastic to ingest.

    Oh - I bought another one today to put in the camping kit. It is the first time I have bought one, so the first tine I have seen prices. I am not sure if they are on special or not, but they were R40 - not R70. At Checkers Atterbury Value Mart.

    Ian, does it not damage the non-stick coating?

    Willem, the Cobb is stainless. It has two non-stick components. The griddle and the pan. I've washed both with the stuff and do not see any damage. Time will probably tell. I doubt any damage inflicted by degreaser will be worse than the scouring I subject the griddle to in my attempts to clean it.

    Anyways, I just wanted to update on the price. It was placed at R70 earlier. It turned out cheaper.

    PS: Somebody referred to it earlier as a product I am punting. I am not punting products. It is just the first product I found which actually works as it should. I am in IT, not cleaning stuff....

    If facts matter....

    250ml = R49.99 at your store
    300ml = R69.00 Camp & Climb (google) - like the one in your original post!

    If facts matter. I bought this one in the photograph below. It definitely does not look like a 250ml one to me. And it was R39.99 or something similar. I rounded it to R40. Sadly, I no longer have the till-slip as I didn't realise I'd have to make myself accountable to you. I can probably always take a drive down there tomorrow and get a photo of the item and the price on the shelf ?

    On a serious note. I fail to see what the issue was - I've already indicated that I'd happily pay R70 because the product works and you're welcome to stick to your prepsol.

    The Cobb Cleaner is also good but expensive, also used to clean my Weber's.

    Shout out to the OP. This cleaner is FANTASTIC for braai grids. Went and got some on the strength of his recommendation and used it today and was most impressed. R40 at Checkers, much cheaper and better than Zeb which is what I used to use.
    Will also be going back for a second bottle to keep in the camper.

    I found one at the local paint store called Bliksem. Works a damn side better than oven cleaner, and doesn't burn your hands.
    Good for degreasing as well.
