The OOB task process in SharePoint Designer workflow accepts a user retrieved by the workflow using lookup. If you want to use dynamic approvers in a workflow, you can select "Workflow Lookup for a User" and point to the Approvers filed in the master list.

Reference: SharePoint – Custom approval workflow with Dynamic Approvers using SharePoint Designer.

Please note, if you build a workflow based on the master list, the workflow cannot loop on multiple items but only current item which the workflow instance is attached to. As a workaround, you can send one approval task to all users with the same grade, all responses required.
