Hello. I’m Steffani Adaska.
I’m a Chef, a mom, a serial entrepreneur and Founder of Adasko Enterprises LLC. Originally from Mendham, NJ, I now reside in the beautiful White Mountains in North Conway, NH. 


We all know that it’s important to oil your grill so your food does not stick to it.  But there’s a Problem! There’s no easy, clean, or safe way to oil your grill grates so your food doesn’t stick.

Current options available are old school, unsafe and MESSY:

Aerosol Can, shake it up, spray – BUT THIS IS DANGEROUS KIDS
... DON’T DO THIS


Take a pair of kitchen tongs, take a wad of paper towel, dip in oil… BIG DRIPPY MESS.

                          (Yep, that is Chef Steffani with charcoal on her face.)


I knew there had to be a solution.

A LIGHTBULB went off in my head. I had an idea. An image of one of those soap dispensing scrubber sponges came to mind. Wouldn’t it be cool to create something like that, but that held oil for your grill?

I was onto something...

I started a company. Hired some help. Voila!!! Introducing the GrateMate™ Grill Grate Oiler by AdasKo Enterprises, LLC.


Say Goodbye to food sticking to your grill.

Adios to messy Flare-Ups and Exploding Aerosol Cans when you Oil Your Grill.







  • The GrateMate™  has a long handle that keeps your hand away from the heat source and acts as reservoir to hold your high-heat cooking oil.
  • It has heat-resistant silicone bristles that caress your grill grates while releasing small amounts of oil onto your hot grill.
  • The GrateMate™ won’t leak.
  • It is dishwasher safe.
  • It has a strong stainless steel loop at the end of the handle so you can conveniently hang it alongside your other BBQ accessories.
  • It is BPA free.
  • And, with your help, will be made in New Hampshire, USA.

                                         

                                                MADE IN THE USA


We are dedicated to making our products in the USA.  Because we are keeping it MADE IN USA, our costs are much higher than if we were to have our products made overseas.  Steel Molds are more expensive than molds made from other materials. Click here FMI. We need SEVERAL MOLDS (like 7 of them) just to make one product.  To make the GrateMate™the Steel Molds alone are costing nearly $90,000.
