Is a robot that cleans your grill grate necessary? Absolutely not. Is it super cool? Heck, yeah! The grill-cleaning Grillbot runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and has three spinning, brass wire brushes to do the dirty work. The brushes are removable and dishwasher safe. It actually does a good job of cleaning the tops of the grate but doesn’t get down inside quite as well as hand scraping. But then again, that would require scraping — by hand. It takes 15 to 30 minutes of steel drum-like racket to get your grill nice and clean.
