The Oil Driver
The “oil driver” is a cooking
oil applicator for the hot grates of the grill prior to grilling food.
This will prevent food from sticking or burning on to the grates and
will make nice, even and tastier grill marks on the food.
Most common way to oil your hot
grill is to first brush it clean then apply oil with a saturated paper
towel using thongs. This is time consuming and impractical to do on a
Normally I will grill 3-4 times per
week and oiling my grill is the least exciting part of the process. So I
started thinking and searching for available tools for this step. The
few tools I found are not practical or sophisticate enough: Stainless
steel dish with towels to dip in oil, disposable wipes, oil sprayers
So the idea behind the oil driver is
practicality! Once you’ve brushed your grill, you run the oiling rig
over it and you’re ready to grill on a non-stick surface. No mess no
fuss! Do it over and over again until you have to refill the tank. Stand
up the Oil Driver to see the oil level in the tank. Depending on how
frequently you grill it could last you many months or a year.
The design is obviously inspired by a golf club, it
makes the oil tank look more sporty and aerodynamic. The design will be
very appealing to the end user. The most popular gift ideas for Father's
Day and Christmas are golf and grill related gifts. The combination of
both of this will appeal to most people shopping for their Dad,
Uncle, husband, brother or Grandpa.

Using the Oil Driver regularly

After continuous use, the applicator
pad will slowly become saturated with a black tar like grease that will
interrupt the flow of oil to the grates. Adjust the flow
