Fuego F21C-H Review

Fuego F21C-H Gas Grill Review

Sporting a forty-five degree hinged lid and 22,000 BTU/hr heat output, the Fuego F21C-H is a step up from its predecessor. This grill is 72.2 lbs of easy-to-relocate, compact cooking which will be a highlight of any outdoor event.

Pros:

  • Cute, compact design
  • Simple assembly

  • Large grilling space for its size

Cons: 

  • A thin lid that feels like it may break, and does not close to form a seal
  • The shelf is very small
  • Feels cheap due to the thin construction
  • Paint is quick to peel
  • The grill tray is not inclined, leading to grease buildup

Features: 

  • Porcelain enamel lid to prevent heat damage

Number of Burners: One, although it has a “Dual-zone” burner, allowing multiple different heats on one ring

Price Range: $330 – $390

Char-Broil Performance Series 2-Burner Cabinet Review

This sleek and elegant cabinet grill sports cast-iron construction and a robust frame. The side-panels fold down, allowing you to use them when grilling but give the grill a smaller footprint when it is not in use. The removable drip-tray allows you to easily clean this device, letting you not worry about some of the messier recipes you may try.

  • A battery-operated starter that is simple to use
  • The lid-mounted thermometer allows easy monitoring of heat

Cons: 

  • No space for storage of tools and utensils
  • A little small for what it is trying to do, meaning it feels a little compact
  • Thin construction and lack of a back panel makes it look a little cheap

Cuisinart CGG-501 Gourmet Two-Burner Review

This small, two-burner tabletop grill is perfect for getting out when you have sudden guests around. If you do not have the space to spare a permanent area for a grill in your home, it can be easily cleaned and stored for the next event.

Despite its small size, the Cuisinart CGG-501 still sports two burners. This allows you to either have the entire surface for cooking or leave one side as a food warming area from which guests can take their meal.

Pros:

  • Two burners in such a small device mean a lot of versatility
  • A very portable frame means it can easily be taken to events
  • A perfectly simple and easy-to-use device

Cons: 

  • The grease catcher does not hold much before overflowing
  • Grill plate can warp at higher temperatures, leading to an ugly presentation
  • Did not come with a grill-plate despite instructions suggesting it does
  • Awkward controls made activating the ignition a hassle
  • Only a very short gas hose is included

Features: 

  • 285 square inch cooking surface.
  • Stainless steel burners
  • Less than 30lbs portable weight
  • Built-in 20 LB LP tank hose
  • Zero assembly setup

Number of Burners: Two

Dimensions: 21 x 20.5 x 9 inches

Price Range: $172.99 – $182.99

Blackstone 1554 Review

Having a grill on casters is always a boon, and this one’s low weight makes it easy to get wherever you need it. In addition, the four independently controlled burners mean you can have the perfect grilling setup for your needs. We found it best to have two for cooking and two for food-warming when the party got really busy.

Blackstone 1554 Gas Grill Review

In addition, this grill comes with a range of optional extras, such as side shelves, basting covers, and grill protective covers. These will no doubt help any aspiring outdoor chef. We did find that multiple versions of this grill had different grease drains, however, which meant we had to handle them differently.

Pros:

  • Quick assembly with simple instructions
  • The griddle is very simple to remove
  • Two lockable wheels prevent accidents on slight inclines

Cons: 

  • Two versions of the same grill sport both a front and rear grease drain. Therefore you cannot plan for where it will end up
  • Thin construction means too much moving about may damage the frame

Features: 

  • Fast-ignition button
  • Grease drain
  • Easily-removable griddle top
  • Four independently controlled burners
  • Caster wheels with wheel locks

Number of Burners: Four

Dimensions: 62.5 x 22 x 36 inches

Price Range: $315.99 –  $500

Char-Broil Performance 475 Review

A wonderfully portable, yet sturdy piece of grilling technology with durable construction. This is not a complicated piece of technology, so should be usable by individuals of any skill level so long as they can use the basic knobs. The ignition button is robust and also allows even the most basic chef to get started without needing matches or a lighter.

Char-Broil Performance 475 Review

This grill was so beautiful and smooth. We wanted to adorn it with decoration but suspect the heat would not allow it. Despite the simple mechanism, however, putting it together was quite difficult. The instructions were often unclear and could do with improvement.

Pros:

  • Simply a beautiful grill with gorgeous stainless-steel polished construction
  • Good quality grill
  • Large cooking space

Cons: 

  • The heat adjustment controls can heat up, so make sure you have gloves
  • The grill itself can sometimes take a long time to heat up
  • The instructions to assemble the grill were unclear and took a long time to work out

Features: 

  • Removable grease pan
  • Lid-mounted temperature gauge
  • Electronic ignition
  • Metal side shelves
  • Side burner
  • Porcelain-coated cast-iron grates
  • Stainless steel lid, handle, and control panel

Number of Burners: Four

Dimensions: 25.8 x 53.1 x 45 inches

Price Range: $223 – 259.99

Primus | Kuchoma Portable Gas Camping Grill Review

This small gas grill is designed with portability and travel in mind. You may not want it out the back of your house unless you are on an extreme budget, but if you instead wish to go camping or hiking this may be the thing for you.

Primus | Kuchoma Portable Gas Camping Grill Review

The grill even flips down into a suitcase-like profile for easy carrying or can be set up simply by popping open the lid. On the side is also a small Piezo ignition device, perfect for easy lighting out in the middle of nowhere.

Pros:

  • Small and perfect for camping
  • Incredibly portable
  • Simple to set up

Cons: 

  • Small flames can take a while to heat up
  • The non-stick surface suggests it was not intended for long-term use, as scraping the grill clean causes damage
  • A very shallow drip tray causes some issues

Features: 

  • Piezo ignition
  • Foldable steel legs
  • Ceramic non-stick grill
  • A stainless steel drip tray
  • Propane canister stand

Price Range: $189.95

Napoleon TQ285-BL-1 Review

Almost sporting a look like a piece of sporting goods, the Napoleon TQ285-BL-1 is a beautiful piece of kit. It is easily portable due to its closing handle lining up perfectly on both sides of the oven hatch. In addition, a set of sturdy legs help keep the grill at a perfect height when on a table or outdoor bench.

Napoleon TQ285-BL-1 Review

Weber Summit S-670 LP Gas Grill, 7370001 Review

The grandpappy of grills in this list. The Weber Summit S-670 LP grill looks like someone pulled it directly out of Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen and set it up in your back garden. Do not be fooled by the price tag, this beast is worth every penny. If you are the kind of person who can afford a top of the line hot tub in your own home, you need this grill.

Weber Summit S-670 LP Gas Grill, 7370001 Review

Its six burners can heat up any food to exactly the temperature you want it. Without multiple lids, however, you may have to be aware of just how warm the entire underside of the cover gets. We would have preferred two separate cooking areas, personally, but in our experience, the rotisserie burner more than made up for that.

Pros:

  • A simply beautiful presentation which your neighbors will be envious of
  • Oodles of storage for any outdoor cooking connoisseur
  • Automatic rotisserie grill, which will be the talk of your neighborhood

Cons: 

  • Only one lid means you cannot have two separately-heated enclosed areas
  • The smoker does not give too much of an effect
  • Incredibly heavy. Do not be expecting to move this one around

Features: 

  • Snap-Jet individual burner ignition system
  • 624 square inches of cooking area
  • Warming rack
  • Center-mounted thermometer
  • Lighted control knobs
  • Tool hooks

Number of Burners: Six

Dimensions: 30 x 74.1 x 57.1 inches

Price Range: $2599-$2800

Dyna-Glo DGB390BNP-D Smart Space Living 3 Burner LP Gas Grill Review

This grill is simple, powerful, and well-built. Do not expect to be showing off this piece of technology to your friends as it is not much to look at. Instead, trust that your cooking will make up for that as the grill itself is more than adequate for any needs.

Dyna-Glo DGB390BNP-D Smart Space Living 3 Burner LP Gas Grill

We are big fans of customizability, so the fact the two side-shelves can easily fold away was a big plus for us. It means you can store this grill easily or simply take up less space on a patio or in a garden.

Pros:

  • Small garden footprint once you put the shelves away
  • Very even flame leads to very good cooking
  • Simple construction means it is easy to clean

Cons: 

  • The grill has no stand-out features which put it above and beyond. It is simply a solidly good grill for a new starter.
  • Multiple complaints online of some significant rusting, although we did not see this during our review

Features: 

  • 390 square inch cooking area
  • Chrome-plated control valves
  • Built-in thermometer
  • Tool rail
  • Cast-iron grates

Number of Burners: Three

Dimensions: 49.1 x 22.8 x 45.1 inches

Price Range: $370-$399

Weber 66011001 Genesis II E-310 Review

This grill is very much a no-expense-spared piece of equipment which would be a boon to any household. We had very few problems when reviewing this grill and would recommend it highly at its price point.

Weber 66011001 Genesis II E-310 Review

With two well-positioned shelves as well as a rack underneath, this grill has a ton of space for any enterprising chef to make good use of the area. In addition, it is simply a beautiful piece of engineering, reminding us of a victorian still or steam engine.

We just love the phrase “Flavorizer bars” and this grill makes fantastic use of them. The designers have positioned these just underneath the grill itself. A lot of the grease which drops down vaporizes on touching them and re-flavors the food above for a wonderful smoky taste. Perfect before chilling out on the couch to watch the game on your new TV.

Pros:

  • Very even heating
  • Flavorizer bars are always a plus
  • Tons of space to cook an entire meal at different temperatures
  • Built-in app to connect the thermometer to your phone

Cons: 

  • Hard to see if the burners are lit due to their placement
  • Cheap wheels despite an expensive-looking construction on the rest of the grill
  • The grill takes a little bit too much time to heat up

Features: 

  • Porcelain-enameled lid
  • Porcelain-enameled, cast-iron cooking grates
  • iGrill app-connected thermometer
  • Food warming shelf
  • Tool-hanger
  • Flavorizer bars

Number of Burners: Three

Dimensions: 59 x 29 x 47 inches

Price Range: $729-$803
