    Before 2011, eggs came with a black porcelain grate. The stainless was a product upgrade. They also upgraded the dome thermometer.

    Cast iron grates are extra, and only needed if you like grill marks.

    Most of the grates you see pictures of on here are the stainless.  They just turn black very quickly into your eggs life!
