WITH GRILLING SEASON HEATING UP, ALL KINDS OF GADGETS
PROMISE TO TAKE YOUR GRILL TO A NEW LEVEL.
MICHELLE LI TEAMED UP WITH CONSUMER REPORTS.
TO TEST SEVERAL ...AND SEE HOW WELL THEY WORK.
Looking for more from your grill? Consumer Reports
tested three gadgets that aim to make grilling even
First up - GrillGrates - interlocking panels that
sit on top of your grill.
They promise to help it cook more evenly and keep
your food juicy, while reducing flare ups.
Consumer Reports' lab found the GrillGrates did improve
evenness with one of the two grills it tested.
And although the GrillGrates didn't totally eliminate
flare-ups, they did deliver some nice grill marks.
If your grill is uneven heating and you're maybe even
contemplating replacing your grill, this would be
a less expensive option to try and they do offer a
money back guarantee.
Next up - the 150-dollar Bakerstone Pizza Oven Box
for using your grill to make wood-fired-style pizza.
After a 30-minute warm up, it turned out delicious
pizzas every four minutes.
And finally - the 130-dollar Grillbot.
It's a grill-cleaning robot that promises to scrub
your grill grates automatically.
Consumer Reports let the robot loose on a grill caked
with cooked chicken.
It is noisy, but after 20 minutes the Grillbot tidied
up some of the mess.
Still it took a grill brush to clean up the pieces
of burnt chicken stuck in between the grates.
A grill brush is a faster, less expensive solution,
but it's not as fun.
CONSUMER REPORTS ALSO LIKES THE MASTER FORGE GRILL
AND THE BRINKMAN RIB RACK.
BOTH LESS THAN 20-BUCKS AT STORES LIKE LOWES AND HOME
