CosmoGrill Deluxe

A Choice for a Seasoned Griller

If you are a dab hand in grilling, you know that having really good and quality equipment is half-way to excellent grilling results. And if you are also a welcoming host often throwing BBQ parties, you know that being able to cook multiple servings at a time is a key to success with numerous guests. The CosmoGrill Deluxe gas BBQ easily covers all those aspects.

First off, what sets this model apart from the rivals is an oversized cooking surface measuring 77 x 42 cm that can accommodate a number of portions to treat a large group of people. Beneath the grill are 6 powerful (14kW) stainless steel burners that ensure quick heating and even heat distribution to avoid jot and cold spots when cooking. Besides, on the right, there is an added side burner similar to those used in gas stoves and suitable for pan cooking. So, while a batch of steaks is being grilled on the grill, you can make some garnish or toss off some sauce on the side burner. And a warming rack above the main grill will let you keep your foods deliciously warm until you serve them without the risk of overdrying or overcooking.

Notably, each gas burner is ignited and adjusted independently giving you an opportunity to use only some part of the cooking surface when cooking smaller servings or consistently cook ingredients with different cooking times and temperatures. Meanwhile, a thermometer built into the hood allows for easy temperature control inside the grill to achieve excellent cooking results each time. And a roomy cabinet below the grill provides ample storage space for any grilling essentials.

Due to a larger cooking surface and heavy-duty metal construction resistant to damages, the Deluxe grill is pretty heavy and bulky. Yet, 4 sturdy steel castors along with a hefty handle make it very easy to move around. The only negative, though, in this model is that the whole construction is not resistant to corrosion, hence, the grill requires storage in a covered dry area.

All things considered, the CosmoGrill Deluxe is a powerful high-quality gas BBQ that will become a real deal for experienced grillers who often host large-scale BBQ parties with family and friends

Fire Mountain JE03710401

Maximum Thought-out Design

Fire-grilled foods are delicious, but fiddling with an outdoor grill is pretty tiresome and time-taking, and that’s what most grilling fans dislike about outdoor grilling. Yet, the Fire Mountain gas BBQ was created with those lazier home grillers in mind to make grilling less of a hassle and more of a pleasure.

Three premium stainless steel burners are a breeze to ignite with the integrated piezo ignition. They will immediately start producing consistent heat and ensure a perfect cooking temperature in an instant, unlike charcoal grills where you have to wait until the coals burn to generate enough heat. The burners are covered with steel flame tamers that protect them from clogging and serve for more efficient heat distribution as well as for vaporising the drippings to give your foods that appetising smoky flavour. Gas burners boast precise heat adjustment and the temperature gauge in the hood ensures fairly easy cooking temperature control. The cooking grill measures 63 x 42 cm in size and provides a generous cooking area for cooking meats, sausages, burgers, and veggies at a time while a sizeable warming grill will keep cooked foods and rolls or scones perfectly warm.

For maximum user convenience, the Fire Mountain grill comes fitted with a number of add-ons. Thus, two pretty large side tables will let you keep seasonings, any other ingredients, and serving dishware at hand and even place a glass of wine to enjoy while you cook. At the same time, small hooks on the right allow having all the necessary cooking utensils within easy reach and a storage shelf beneath is a great place for a gas cylinder. Two oversized castors make the grill easy to move while two common legs on the other side will keep it stable when cooking.

Cleaning this grill won’t be a hassle either. It is just enough to wipe an all-steel body and hood with a damp cloth and wash the cast iron grill under the running water. And a special drip tray will neatly collect all the grease and juice drippings, preventing the mess and oily stains.

In a word, distinguished by a well-thought design and the ultimate convenience in use, the Fire Mountain gas grill will cater to the needs of grill lovers who seek an alternative to laborious and time-taking charcoal grilling.

Outback Omega 250

A Value-for-the-buck Solution

Gas BBQs are really great and will become the centrepiece of any garden party, yet, they often appear pretty expensive too. However, if you are not ready for a big investment, it doesn’t mean you should refuse from buying a garden grill. At a fairly reasonable price tag, the Outback Omega grill offers all the benefits of gas grilling.

This model has pretty much the same design and provides a great number of conveniences as its top-rated premium counterparts. Along with a major cooking grill covered by a hefty hood, it features an additional side burner for cooking in a pan or on a griddle. It’s a really great option for cooking some side dishes, garnishes, or sauces. Meanwhile, a handy small table on the other side will conveniently accommodate all the seasonings and utensils you might need or will come in helpful for cutting ingredients. An ample storage rack is also including for keeping dishware, glassware, some bottles with beverages, etc.

With a 50 x 36 cm cooking surface, this gas grill from Omega is noticeably smaller than other models in its class. Yet, it still provides enough area for cooking several portions and 2 steel burners deliver sufficient power to cook your meals rather quickly. Besides, more compact in size, the Omega Outback is a great choice for smaller terraces, patios, gardens, and backyards. Unlike more expensive grills, this model comes complete with a gas regulator and a hose that makes gas cylinder connection a cinch (a gas cylinder is sold separately). Notably, the grill consumes minimum gas volume per cooking cycle, hence, a single gas cylinder will last for long.

Reasonably priced and fairly practical, the Omega Outback gas grill provides truly great value for the buck. It will become a nice choice for smaller families and medium to small-size households.

CosmoGrill 4+1

Enjoy All-weather Grilling

Grilling and barbecuing are mostly popular during a warm season since on colder days, a grill takes longer to heat up and the foods are very fast to cool down afterwards. Want to be able to enjoy grilled delicacies all year round and treat your guests with juicy steaks on the Christmas dinner? If so, this gas BBQ from CosmoGrill will catch your fancy.

First things first, distinguished by powder-coated stainless steel construction, this model stands out for all-weather durability. It is resistant to rust and corrosion, so, you can safely use it under any weather conditions and don’t have to necessarily store it in a garage. It is enough to use a grill cover. In contrast to other similar models, the CosmoGrill BBQ has a double-walled hood that better holds the heat inside and minimises heat loss when it’s cold outside. Not only does it allow achieving the desired meat doneness more quickly but also it helps keep cooked foods deliciously warm for longer. Paired with 4 powerful gas burners, this option will work great, whatever the outside temperature.

As for the rest, this CosmoGrill model doesn’t trail behind as well. A 61 x 32 cm cooking grill is large enough to cook several juicy steaks or a few fish fillets, a number of burgers, sausages, kebabs, corn cobs, etc. An extra side burner for pan cooking, a side table for keeping some ingredients, utensils, or seasonings at hand, and closed storage cabinets are also included for your maximum convenience. Two big castors will let you easily move the grill whenever and wherever you need and two legs with rubberised caps will keep it stable on any surface, be it wood, tile or stone.

To resume, strongly built, powerful, and weather-proof, this gas BBQ from CosmoGrill can be used under any outdoor temperature without the need to wait for the warm season to come.

Campingaz Party 400

Small yet Versatile Outdoor Cooker

Full-scale gas grills are usually pretty bulky and, though they are portable, they are mostly meant for household use and are not an option for the use on the go. This is where the gas BBQ from Campingaz will come into play.

Fairly compact in size and lightweight, this model is ideal both for camping or other outdoor pastimes and for smaller houses with space-limited backyards. Measuring 36 cm in diameter, it is times smaller than stovetop-like. Hence, taking much less storage space, it will easily fit into the car trunk or your truck and find its place in your trailer, RV, or caravan. Besides, it’s a snap to put together and disassemble, needing no specific skills or tools.

Despite its compactness and a single-burner design, you’ll be amazed by the Campingaz grill functional versatility. Fitted with a whole variety of accessories, this little cooker can be used not only as a grill but also as a stovetop and a plancha. A stainless steel grill can easily accommodate 6 medium steaks at a time while a burner shield will ensure better heat distribution for quicker and more even cooking. At the same time, a non-stick coated griddle ribbed on one side and flat on the reverse side will let you cook anything from juicy roasts to pizzas to omelettes to pancakes to hot sandwiches and more. And finally, a sturdy thick enamelled lid doubles as a wok. Paired with a pan stand included in the set, it can be used for cooking soups or a whole range of Asian style food.

Summing up, if a compact, portable, and functional outdoor cooker suitable for on-the-go use that will let you toss off both gilled foods and some habitual stovetop meals is what you need, you can’t go wrong with the Campingaz grill.

What Is a Gas BBQ?

Both in the heat of the summer and in the cold of the winter, outdoor grills allow cooking delicious grilled foods everyone adores. Burgers and hot dogs are great treats for a teenage gathering or a get-together with friends while juicy steaks and appetising grilled veggies will become the centrepiece of any festive table. That’s not to say about enjoyable BBQ parties in your backyard or garden during a warm season. When choosing an outdoor cooker, the hardest battle usually breaks up between charcoal and gas grills. Both types allow grilling over the open fire that makes them ideal for cooking outdoors. Yet, recently gas BBQs become more and more popular and for a good reason.

By design, gas BBQs or grills somewhat resemble a stovetop that rests on a wheeled base. Powered by propane or butane, it really has gas burners installed under a heavy-duty grill. Meanwhile, the wheeled construction makes it easy to move the unit around and transport it to any part of your garden or patio. The benefits you’ll get with the gas BBQ include:

  • Easy ignition and no mess related to lighting charcoal.
  • Quick heat up to the necessary cooking temperature.
  • Convenient and precise temperature control that engages no trial and error.
  • Easy maintenance since there will be no hassle of discarding the ash.

The only drawback you might refer to a gas BBQ is the lack of woody flavour charcoal normally infuses foods with. On the other hand, though, the ability to grill succulent meats really fast and a breeze-to-grasp temperature control that engages no specific tweaks fully compensate that minor niggle.

While gas BBQs are a real deal for parties and cooking for larger groups, countertop indoor grills will let you enjoy crispy grilled sausages and roast chicken for sandwiches in the comfort of your kitchen without the need of fuelling up your bulkier outdoor cooker.
