Here’s my ultimate list of the best accessories for your Blackstone! Whether you a tabletop or a big ol’ 8 burner! I’ve also included a price guide as well as my favorite recipes for those accessories.
I absolutely love my Blackstone! Outdoor griddles are really fun because of how quickly it cooks! Especially compared to my other favorite outdoor appliance – my Traeger smoker – which is all about the low and slow cooking. The Blackstone is all about quick and hot!
Once you get your new griddle together – you’re to want to season it! That’s essential so you can be sure that it’s non-stick going foward. You’re going to need a few tools to do it right – so be sure to check that post for the Blackstone griddle accessories.
Price guide (as of 2023)

$ Blackstone Accessories Under $10
- Grease Cup Liners – These liners pop into a holder and are great because you just pop them out when full and throw them away.
- Canola Oil – I use this for nearly everything on the Blackstone and have it in my squirt bottles. It works great! Just pick up a big ol’ bottle at the grocery store.
- Long Tongs – These are ESSENTIAL! I use them mainly for cleaning with the lint-free towels. The griddle is HOT so to have a little distance between your hand and the heat is nice.
- Squirt Bottles (Non-Branded) – I have to admit – I’m a Blackstone snob and I like it all to match with the Black/Orange logo. But – if you’re not – these squeeze bottles are cheaper. And trust me – you need 2 bottles – one for oil and one for water. The water is used in cleanup.
- Heavy Duty Griddle Scraper – In addition to the water bottle, this stainless steel scraper is your best tool for cleaning! Squirt on water while it’s still hot and then scrape the chunk and bits into the grease trap. Then dry with the long tongs and lint free towels! (scroll down)
$$ Blackstone Accessories between $11 – $20
- Silicone Ring – If you’re going to be making scrambled eggs – it’s essential. I tried it without and they just runaway! I also tried using the spatulas for a barrier and using a metal “egg-ring” and the silicone ring was 1000% more effective!
- Lint Free Towels – These have been a game changer for cleanup! Grab them with the tong and wipe off. They wash so nicely and come out spotless! I also use these for cleaning around the house. I love the bright colors too! So fun! These are definitely an upgrade from paper towels and you’ll use them all over the house!
- Cheese Melting Dome – If you’re doing burgers a lot or cheesesteaks – this will be helpful! You can cover the burgers and create a little steam to melt the cheese.
- Parchment Sheets – These are really great if you’re making burgers a lot. Using parchment under the burger press makes it so much easier!!!! Plus they’re great inside for baking!
- Branded Squirt Bottles – Like I said – I like things to match. These are the Blackstone branded plastic bottles. I did see a TikTok video about using an empty ketchup bottle for oil & water – that’s a free idea!
- Heavy Spatula – So I have my normal long Blackstone spatulas but I found having a heavy-duty wide stainless-steel spatula – it makes the Smashburgers and pancakes easier to flip. Now – don’t try using this to smash – the results were abysmal. But it’s nice to have a heavier duty spatula for flipping when needed.
- Burger Press – THIS is the tool for Smashburgers! I tried spatulas and a press and this press was the best! You do need a potholder for the handle – and you have to put your back into it. I looked and found this was the best press for the price as well! This could be used as a bacon press as well.
- Thermometer Gun – this instant read thermometer gun is a big help for making sure you’re not too hot or too cold when you put your food on. You want it a little hotter to melt the butter but then lower to cook scrambled eggs! Hard to rely on the knobs to know – this takes the mystery out of it!
$$$ Blackstone Accessories Over $20
- Fabric Soft Cover for Griddle – You’ll have to find the cover that fits your Blackstone but the prices are pretty affordable and this – again – is 100% necessary!
- Blackstone Griddle Wind Guards – These will attach around the sides of the griddle to protect your flame from the wind. I haven’t found a need for these yet but I’m in a pretty wooded area – but they’re not too pricey and are a great protector!
- Griddle Caddy – A good chunk of these accessories aren’t optional. I got super tired of trying to carry everything out to the griddle so I bought a bag to hold them all. Then I bumped up to a cart (see below) – but I put the bag inside the cart to help with organization on the bottom shelf.
- Blackstone Griddle Accessory Tool Kit – I tried to find the long, thin Blackstone spatulas out of a kit and wasn’t too successful. The ones I found were too heavy – the Blackstone ones are thin! This Blackstone accessory kit comes with 2 spatulas, 2 squirt bottles and the scraper listed above for under $30! These spatulas are perfect for rice and vegetables – like in Chicken Fried Rice!
- Silicone Mat – Mine does not have the hard cover – so I want to protect the griddle from moisture. Once the griddle is cleaned and dried for about an hour – I place the silicone mat on top and then the fabric cover. And – so far – (knock on wood) – haven’t found any critters in my Blackstone!!! (Oh fingers crossed so hard!!!)
- Bar Cart – After I outgrew the Griddle Caddy – I had to upgrade to a Bar Cart. This one is great! I popped it together (no tools) in about 20 minutes. It is plastic – but my area for the griddle and cart is under a covered gazebo. I love that the top is big enough to set all the ingredients on and all my tools are inside – ready and waiting for me! No juggling tools out the door!!!!
This recipe was made using the Blackstone Griddle.
No – I bought a cleaner set with these scouring pads and don’t use them. I hated them frankly. I found just using the scraper – then the long tongs, lint free towels and water works far better!
Yup! I put all the stainless steel tools right in the dishwasher after using them!
I’ve tried a few but they’re mainly seasonings I also use on my Traeger. It’s more recipe-dependent than Blackstone. They do have a line of Blackstone seasoning mixes though and I’m sure they’re great!
