Easy Fixes for Your Aching Back from Redi-Gril, LLC

Even if you’re grilling for one, or if you are a cook that uses a commercial restaurant flat top grill, standing on your feet all day is no picnic. It’s lousy for your feet, your joints and your ligaments. There’s new research that suggests it may also increase risk for chronic disease.

One of the best things to help alleviate the back pain is to work smarter and more efficiently. Our grill scrapers speed the cleaning process, clean up time is cut in half! With our newly patented Heavy Duty Grill Scraper with Squeegee, the time savings is even better.

Of course, this work is still hard on your back. Look through this list of easy exercises and see how many of them you can fit into your working day. You’ll be doing yourself a big favor. *These are tips and not intended to be given as medical advice. For any serious injury or condition, please consult a medical professional.
  1. You can do this one while you’re actually cooking. Starting on your heels, put your weight onto the heels of your feet and then lift your toes into the air. This will help stretch all the muscles in your feet. After you've completed about 10-20 reps, do the same with your heel. Place your weight onto the balls of your feet, then lift your body up. This will benefit your circulation.
  2. Shrug the stress away in your shoulders and back. Raise your shoulders up towards your ears, and then let them go. Each time you raise your shoulders, move your shoulder blades around for extra relief. You can also roll your head back onto your neck. Hear it cracking?
  3. Keep your hips loose by swaying from side to side. You can pretend there’s a song in your head and you’re swaying to it. Keep a steady motion and just pull the muscles in your hips slightly to give a small stretch. Do about twenty reps and then move your hips in a circular motion, first, counter-clockwise and then do the same clockwise.
  4. If you can walk away from the grill for a few minutes, try doing some squats. If you’ve never done them before, go easy. A squat will tone all of your muscles, so work on getting the reps up.
Take good care of your feet. Wear the best shoes you can find. You might want to look into something with a “rocker bottom”. Then, at the end of the day, massage your feet. Lacing your fingers between your toes to spread the toes can help to promote blood flow and balance your foot muscles.

And remember that you want to keep moving. Standing all day is no better for your health than sitting all day. Mix it up when you can.

Healthy Eating in 2017

We’re one month into the New Year, and have you thought about eating a little bit healthier this year? It’s something that shows up on the top of a lot of resolution lists, and quickly gets discarded. We’re going to give you a few tips to help get you started. Nothing drastic and nothing scary, just some easy stuff you might never have thought of before.

Here are some very basics:

  • Use whole-wheat flour whenever you can, in place of white flour.
  • Greek yogurt works in place of sour cream. You want to buy the all-natural kind.
  • Ground turkey works in place of red meat for just about anything.
  • Oatmeal will make healthier meatballs and meatloaf than breadcrumbs will.
  • Instead of salt, use citrus juice or herbs that you like. Life shouldn’t be a salt lick.
  • Steam instead of boil. It saves nutrients.
  • Brown rice or wild rice is healthier than white.  You can try bulgur, too.
  • When you’re baking you can reduce the amount of sugar you’re using by adding vanilla or cinnamon or nutmeg. Or apple sauce. Make sure that you buy the unsweetened kind and you can use it in a lot of baking recipes. You can use it in place of butter and your creation will remain moist and delicious. Applesauce will also substitute for eggs. Go figure, and don’t tell the chickens. The ratio of applesauce to butter is one to one: if a recipe calls for 1/2 cup of butter, simply sub in 1/2 cup of applesauce. For every large egg a recipe requires, use1/4 cup of applesauce in its place.
  • Instead of bacon you can try turkey bacon or Canadian bacon. They’re both good, but try not to eat bacon too often. It’s sort of a classic “no-no”.
  • Don’t butter your pans! Use cooking spray or non-stick pans...unless you’re in a French cooking competition.
  • Cottage cheese isn’t just for diets, if that’s what you were thinking. Read the label and make sure you’re getting the low-fat kind, then you can use it in place of sour cream on a baked potato, or instead of ricotta cheese in lasagna, or when you bake a cheesecake, or with any kind of fruit for a fruit salad, or on some whole wheat toast with jam on top, or you can drizzle it with honey and cinnamon and stick a cherry on top for dessert! You can also use it to thicken a sauce without having to add butter and flour. The bonus is that it’s packed with protein.
  • At some point in time butter became the enemy. During the 1970s people blamed it for everything and then ran to margarine. When margarine turned out to be not the world’s best choice, people ran back to butter because, well, you can’t beat the flavor of butter, as long as it’s the real thing. But how to use less of it? You can use butter along with olive oil or canola oil or peanut oil when you’re cooking. When it comes time to “butter” the bread or muffin or bagel, how about cream cheese instead? Or unsweetened jam or jelly?  Or the all-time favorite peanut butter.
  • What about that olive oil? First off, you want it to be EVO. That’s not a brand name. It stands for extra-virgin olive oil. If the bottle doesn’t say “extra-virgin” it won’t have all the antioxidants that you’re looking for. It’s the staple of the famous Mediterranean diet which just about everyone agrees is the best for your heart. What you do have to know is that the taste and price vary drastically. Ideally, you’d like to buy the highest quality that you can afford. What you might not know about olive oil is that it comes in flavors! You can buy it flavored with basil or garlic or bacon (!) or chipotle... the list goes on. You can learn how to flavor or “infuse” your own, too. It just takes a little imagination. There might even be a store in your town that will swamp you with choices and ideas.
These really are just some of the easy basics. A lot of good things start with baby steps. Check back with us and read about healthy grilling and lots of things to make your life better!

You’re Only as Good as Your Tools

You must have heard the expressions “You’re only as good as your tools” and “You need the right tool for the right job”. And you’ve found them to be correct, haven’t you? If you need a Phillips screwdriver then that’s what you need. A regular blade screwdriver won’t do. (A little fact for you... the Phillips screwdriver is named for the man who invented it, Henry F. Phillips. Well, not exactly. A man named John P. Thompson invented it, but couldn’t sell it, so he sold it to Mr. Phillips, who was probably pretty happy to name it after himself.)

If you own, or work in a restaurant or a food truck or stand, or have a big ol’ grill in your backyard or on your terrace, you want the right tool to clean it. That’s where we come in. We make the best grill scraper on the market. That might sound boastful, but we stand tall behind our products. And they’re made right here in the USA and virtually indestructible. It doesn’t get any better than that.

The right tool is a good investment. Once you own it, you never have to think about it again. If you’re a cook (or chef, if you prefer) you know that from bacon and eggs in the morning to steak and sides at night your grill gets a workout. You want your grill to be ready when you are. You want to keep it clean and maintained. You don’t want to be without a Redi-Gril grill scraper. You can get a mini one, or a heavy duty one, or a heavy duty one with a squeegee. It’s a beaut and newly patented.


We have been in business for almost forty-five years, and our products have been a fixture in most restaurants and top fast food chains. Our scrapers are safe, efficient, easy to use, and they offer easy clean up. But you still have to do the cooking.

The quality of our products speaks for itself. We use FDA and EU certified silicone. On the off chance that the need arises, we offer replacement parts.

Home Grown Grillin’

Regardless of your political stripe, there’s a certain amount of pride when you purchase something that is made in America. Especially at a time when so many labels read China, or Japan, or maybe even a country you’re not sure you’ve ever heard of and sure can’t find on a map. Along with the pride, you get a healthy splash of confidence. Americans make things that last and wear well. From the first Ford Model T, manufactured and sent down the assembly line in 1908 (an aside... did you know it sold for $825 and the price dropped to $575 four years later!) to our very own grill scrapers, buying American promises durability.

When you buy American, you’re helping to keep local businesses strong and you’re supporting domestic job growth at the same time. Without even thinking about it, you’re helping to keep your fellow Americans in their homes and gainfully employed. You might even be helping to keep businesses here, and stopping the outsourcing trend. And look at the great products you get!

Have you ever ever seen someone pick something up at a store and see a “Made in USA” label and then disdainfully put it back? Not likely. Even our wines rival the best in the world. Don’t mess with us!

We have been in business since 1973, and our products have been a stalwart in most restaurants and top fast food chains. Safe, efficient, easy to use, and they offer easy clean up. Although there are replicas out there, nothing beats Redi-Gril.​

There’s no need to question anything about the quality of our products. We use the highest quality materials available; strong aluminum A360 for our handles, blue tempered steel blades and FDA and EU “food safe” certified silicone. On the off chance that the need arises, we offer replacement parts. And we’re nice people to deal with. (We’re not making this up. We hear it all the time.)

No matter whether you’re a pro or an amateur, our products are grilling must-haves and you’ll wonder how you got along without them.
