Grid Help!

My Grid is giving up, started to twist and bend and a wire has come loose!

I would definitely love a cast iron grid, but i have a hard time keeping my DW rust free.
Any suggestions? Stainless, porcelain, cast iron???

Links would definitely  be a plus!

    SS by far (IMO). CI only gives you grill marks and no taste difference and heavy + rust. I have given all three of my CI grills away. I use a CI pan when needed. I do not ever use my DW. But when I did I would put it in the hot Egg when killing fire.

    I like the char with the CI. It is heavy, but mine is well seasoned so it isn't rusty.

    I've had a couple of cast iron grids but they blow up pretty easily. I have stainless grids from CGS and they are great.
