Perfect grate for Dometic gas stove

I replaced the silly wire frames that surrounded the gas burners on our Dometic stove. This two-piece grate designed for a Furion stove fit and function perfectly.

Did not drill the stove pan because the grates fit well and do not move around.

We no longer have pans tilt off the burner. And can slide them around at will.

Very happy with the choice.

Thank you for posting, I did a google search, and this post was the first on the list!

Question(s): I see you removed those silly wire frames on each burner. How difficult was it to do that? Did you have to make any other modifications? The lid closes perfectly? How does it hold up while traveling?

THANK YOU!!

Not to step on David but I can answer your question. The wire grates just pull out of the grommets.

Our cast grates have held up fine since January of 2021. I did cut some rubber tubing (think auto vacuum tubing) to act as bumpers for the grates to keep them from moving around. They make it a snug fit. YMMV

No problems with heat on the tubing - they’re far away from the flame. It’s so much nicer to cook on; you don’t need to keep one hand on the handle.

Good luck!

I have this exact same grate from eTrailer…Love it. It feels much safer when I am cooking.

The first grate needs pulled out, rotated 180 degrees. It will line up over the front burner better.

Just saying…

I made the switch to the Furrion grates just today!! They fit a bit snug so I ground off the ends of both grates. Now, they fit in easily. A big thanks to whoever was the first to report on this improvement!! Also, a big thanks to those that gave info and part numbers for the metal plugs from McMaster-Carr to fill the holes on stove top and the silicone caps from Mocap to protect the grate feet.

Hey, Farmer Dan. What kind of tool did you use to "grind off the ends of both grates"? I'm assuming a high speed grinder that I would have to rent at Home Depot...so then what kind of brush on the grinder did you use?

Also, I looked back on this thread...could not find anything on the "silicon caps from Mocap" to protect the grate feet. Could you elaborate?

Much appreciated! I also have these grates and they are a huge improvement.

I just used my bench mounted grinder with the tool rest. Keep a firm grip and the grate on the rest to avoid unexpected movement. I think cast iron can be a bit touchy to grind on so go slowly. I didn't brush after grinding. From McMaster-Carr I got nickel-plated metal plugs to go in the stove-top holes where grill / grommets were. 1/4" diameter snap in. Part # 9563K41. Pack of 50. With shipping $26.60. For the peg-legs of the grates from Mocap I used part #MEC.148-1. These are black silicone caps. They are 1" long. Trim them to length to fit. $20.66 for 50. Don't remember shipping cost. These make everything work pretty well.

This is great, however, I have a different cooktop, with a folding aluminum cover. The measurements are larger than the grates that I have currently, so I'm fairly certain this won't work for me. Anyone else have the Dometic CA-35 series cooktop?

We also have a 2019 with the same cooktop you have. I ordered the Furion grates but they did not fit and I had to send them back. Did you find any that did fit?

I have an old Amana stove in my 2008 27FB. I bought the Furion grates on the classifieds and they fit fine. i drilled some holes in the stovetop to "hold" the leg pins cast into the grates so they don't move around. I'll report back after some use. i did have to bend the fingers hanging down on the folding cooktop travel cover to let it clear the new grates but they were easily manipulated with my hands/thumbs. Before and after picture.

Exactly what I was wondering as our 2010 has the same stove.


Thanks!

I love the "finished" look.
But, let me ask, if you reversed the front half wouldn't the grate opening more align with the front burner?

Greetings,
We've also purchased these grates on etrailer and pulled off the original wire racks on the dometic stove in our 2023 27FBT GT. They slid right in with no need to grind anything off.
We're still wondering how anyone could keep a pot from falling off those wire racks and why Dometic thinks its a good idea..cheaper I suppose.. yes the front grate needs to turn 180 from the picture shown and the grates will not line up perfect but they're close enough and provide a much needed secure surface to cook on. My wife loves to cook (lucky me) and the grates give you space to move a pot off the burners to cool down or just to sit a hot pan somewhere.
Safe travels

I just did the upgrade described in this old thread and it was very helpful, along with another thread I found on the forum, in providing information ahead of purchasing the Furrion grate for my Dometic cooktop from e-trailer.

The grates fit perfectly, although I did have to remove the screws holding the cooktop in place on one side to install them because the tolerances were so close. I bought an assortment of vacuum plugs (they are rubber and should be more resistant to temperature than vinyl caps) on Amazon for $9 to fit over the cast iron foot pegs on the grates and prevent scratching of the aluminum cooktop surface. They also extend very slightly past the edge of the grate which makes the fit quite snug and eliminates my concern that the grates might jump around in transit. They also keep the grates from rubbing the aluminum on the sides. When replacing the cooktop screws I left out the center ones which allows me to pivot and lift off the grates more easily for cleaning.

Anyway, I'm very happy with the results. Thanks to those who went before me and provided feedback about doing this upgrade.
