Bodum Neon Green Grill Costs A Lot Of Green Too

Bodum Electric Indoor Table Grill and Griddle

For one hundred and forty dollars, you too can pick up the Bodum Electric Indoor Table Grill and Griddle, Green. Now granted, the fact that it features a reversible plate is certainly useful, but for that price it sure would be nice to use both features at once if desired. A simple modification on the part of Bodum could have two cooking plates for example. If one would be able to use both plates at once–as a grill, a griddle or split half and half–it might justify the price a bit more. Just sayin’–as are the reviewers on Amazon.

Gratelifter Grill Gets Grillers Going

Cuisinart Gratelifter Charcoal Grill CCG-100

Portable grills are imprecise beasts: charcoal gets dumped in, and maybe or maybe not it will be enough fuel to feed a crowd. As the procession of burgers, steaks and chicken come off the grill and make their way into hungry hands, the charcoal burns down and grillers try to squeeze every last bit of heat out of the coals. Because nobody wants to get all grimy lifting up the greasy grill grate to add more charcoal.

Featuring an integrated mechanism that does the lifting for you, the Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill keeps the food party going. When engaged, the grill grate couples to the lid, allowing for both to rise in one easy motion. Just add more charcoal, and get those grilled goodies going again.

Take me to your raclette party

Unold Flying Raclette

If only all parties involved some kind of helicopter-UFO appliance. Or at least melted cheese. With the Unold Flying Raclette you get both! Made for melting or browning cheese, which is then served with potatoes, meat and vegetables, the sci-fi looking kitchen gadget is a new take on a traditional raclette grill.

O-Grill on the go


Finally, an answer to true grill portability. Anybody who has ever tried lugging around the top and bottom of a grill will understand; most grills don’t clasp shut, meaning that two hands are necessary to carry it ultimately resulting in two greasy hands.

Instead of grabbing the grill at all angles in an attempt to keep it from falling over, clasp the O-Grill shut and get on the road. The whole contraption folds up and fits in an optional bag for easy portability. Just attach a propane bottle and you are good to go – literally.

Music to Eat

Gastar miGrill Tabletop Gas Grill with Built-In Speakers

Some things just belong together. Music at a cookout is definitely a classic combination. But music in a gas grill? I’m not exactly sure why, but somebody thought it would be a good idea to combine a propane powered gas grill housed inside a base which includes two “powerful” speakers.

If you don’t mind a little grease with your iPod or other mp3 player, you can now pick up the Gastar miGrill Tabletop Gas Grill with Built-In Speakers. Highly portable, measuring two feet high, with a width of 17.5 inches, the grill has 160 sq. inches of cooking surface. The speakers are powered by 4 AA batteries or an included adapter, while the included drip pan and cooking surface are both dishwasher safe.

Sounds like the perfect complement to the Hampton Grease Band.
