I'm not one for giving reviews, but I just had to write this. This grill is by far the best grill we have ever owned over the last 35 years of grilling! It's just my wife and I and we use it on our condo patio. I would have never believed that a grill could make so much difference in outdoor cooking. All prior grills would either have hot spots, get too hot or cold, extensive flareups which caused you to be watching over the grill constantly. With this grill, I have never had a flareup problem with anything I cooked. It must be the design of the grill and it also holds a constant temperature once you set it. I've learned a trick to only turn foods only once during cooking. This keeps the temperature more constant and allows the heat to cook from the top also. I must admit that I was skeptical about spending the money on this grill. After all, I have always been purchasing the cheaper grills due to the cost. So now I will say that this grill was worth every penny spent on it! Weber, great job on this grill!!!

I've always wanted a portable gas grill, but needed to make sure I could cook a full meal. This grill is big enough to cook 5-6 good sized hamburgers at one time which is perfect for my family. The grill was easy to set up and start using right away. Yet, it's compact and light enough to carry easily and will be perfect for tailgating. The grill grate is easy to handle and clean, making maintenance of the grill pretty simple. I highly recommend it.

I bought this for a camping trip last fall. It was easy to put together, packs up nice, and does a really nice job cooking up burgers and dogs. I was impressed with the simplicity of the design and how easy it was to use. It is much better than charcoal and lighter fluid in a campsite grill, and did not take up much room in the back of the car. While it is not as small as a coleman, this does as good or better job cooking. In fact, the grill surface is big enough for 6 burgers or any number of brats and dogs.

I also purchased the additional propane hose and adapter for a big propane tank so I could just take my home tank with me.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to camp out of the back of your car.

I have enjoyed two tasty meals on the Cuisinart gas grill as a result of not only good food but also a superior product. The Tabletop Gas Grill cooked my food to perfection because of high heating and consistent temperatures. The Cuisinart CGG-200 which is compact (no bulky propane gas tank) and light (35 pounds) was perfect during one of my meals at a city apartment. There were only 5 of us and the grill was a perfect size. Additionally, the grill lights up with a turn of the knob. I didn't have to press any buttons or light any matches to ignite the flames. During my other use of the grill, 13 teammates from a summer league cooked out and enjoyed the grilling experience. The stainless steel cover and temperature gauge is cool looking and the "grilldozer" accessory is a must have for any guy!!

Excellent results! Plenty of cooking space for an average family or get together. Lower and upper vents were about half way open creating a nice draft to keep the charcoal going and imparting that wonderful smokey aroma and taste on the food. Of course, leaving the domed lid on the grill made the food cook faster while imparting the flavor of the charcoal. No flares up either!

Once both vents were closed the charcoal was quickly extinguished. The coals at this point had pretty much given their all, but the closed vents sped up the cool down period.

This is a great heavy weight grill without being too heavy to transport and the two wheels made for easy rolling once I had picked my grilling spot.

For traditional charcoal grilling I just don't think this grill can be beat. When I've used up my supply of regular Kingsford charcoal I'd like to try the hickory briquets! I'm sure the Weber will perform with just as great results. Nice price and won't break the bank when one of these are purchased. Well made for many many years of grilling.

I've loved grilling via propane and for years I could get away with it in apartments (in Florida) Then I moved into a house and grilled regularly. Anyway I had to go back to an apartment now and almost all of them don't allow grills anymore. I bought this based on the reviews and I would say it takes a little longer to heat up, but so far the food cooked (steaks) has been very good and it seems like a great alternative when propane is not available., very small, easy to tuck away and lots of cooking space in a small grill.

Review:

I love this grill...we prefer the taste of charcoal-grilled food over gas-grilled. This grill was pricey, but after several charcoal grills,large and small, higher priced and lower, we finally found the "keeper!" You get a LOT for the money! It cooks lots of food using relatively little charcoal, and since the grill surface is substantial, small pieces of food don't fall through into the fire. We did not order a cover for the grill, and wish we had saved the box for dust-free storage. Or what the heck...order a cover when you order the grill!

I love the Meco 9309W Tabletop Electric Grill. I live in an apartment building with a terrace and gas & charcoal grills are not permitted. I researched electric grills and decided on the Meco. It's perfect and the food has the taste of being cooked on a grill. It's easy to use and keep clean. I recommend this grill and would buy another one. Because of health & diet reasons, I use the grill as much as possible.

Even vegetarians like to grill out, and the portable Element handles vegetarian fare wonderfully! I am able to brown eggplant, mushrooms, asparagus, and bell peppers to perfection without the super crisping/drying out that often occurs on other grills. The Element also sears veggie patties and sausages like they are "the real thing." And halloumi cheese ends up looking waaaay too much like a piece of fish, but I believe this is a good thing 😉 This grill is smartly and beautifully designed -- and since I can easily carry it around, I may end up turning many of my meat-eating friends into vegetarians 🙂

Review:

WOW! We have had this Cobb cooker for a little over 3 weeks and I've used it about 12 times. I had a big gas grill a few years back and I really did not enjoy cooking on it or cleaning it. This cooker does what it says it will do. I use the lump wood charcoal as suggested by lots of folks and Diamond brand firestarter and it works great. Ready in 15 minutes. I've done a whole chicken, ribs, burgers, brats, pork chops. chicken breasts , steaks, shrimp, salmon fillets and rock fish and my husband made pizza on it. It takes a bit of experimenting to get your cooking times adjusted but everything has turned out great so far. I did order the griddle and the fenced roasting rack and I'm glad I did. Plan to order the fry pan as my husband wants to use it to make pizza. Every part of it has been easy to clean. I don't have a dishwasher but clean up in my kitchen sink has been no problem. It is amazing how little charcoal it uses. And no more lighter fluid or flame ups! Most of the time I'm cooking for just me and my husband but we've also cooked for up to 4 people. It is the perfect size for us and easy to take anywhere. I ordered the cookbook but I don't recommend it. Was a waste of $20 bucks. We are very pleased with this product. I watched a lot of You Tube videos on this cooker before buying it and they were very informative.
