10. Mr. Bar-B-Q 06041X

The Mr. Bar-B-Q 06041X provides a patented and ergonomic finger grip on its rosewood-stained handle that follows the natural shape of your hand for comfort. It's backed by a 5-year warranty, so you can always send it back if you have a problem.
  • provides plenty of cooking room
  • bar spacing too wide for small items
  • nonstick coating isn't effective

9. Arctic Monsoon

The Arctic Monsoon is covered with tons of tiny circular perforations that keep even the smallest food from falling through while allowing heat and smoke to penetrate and impart a smokey flavor. It has smooth rolled handles that make it comfortable to hold, too.

8. Bull 24113

If kebabs are on the menu, then the Bull 24113 will be a lifesaver. It comes as a set of four, and is a great choice if you plan on hosting some vegetarians, as you can keep their food safe from touching any meat that's cooking at the same time.
  • wooden handles stay cool
  • cooking area is about 8 inches long
  • not the highest quality construction

7. Accmart Folding

The Accmart Folding has an elongated wooden handle for safety and comfort when cooking. It features a nonstick coating that ensures easy food release and also doesn't take a lot of scrubbing to get clean. But it does feel a bit lightweight and low quality.
  • just over 12 inches wide
  • easily locks closed
  • not deep enough for thick items

6. Outset QC73

Ideal for larger food items, the Outset QC73 features a flexible steel wire construction that contours to the shape of your food while keeping it secure as it cooks. It has a rosewood handle that won't get too hot and sticks out far off the grill.
  • great for whole fish
  • built-in metal loop for hanging
  • can be very difficult to clean

5. GrillPro 98121

The GrillPro 98121 turns your barbecue into a wok, with an ample 12-inch square porcelain-coated cooking surface that's perfect for stir-frying vegetables and diced meats. Its 2-inch depth allows it to hold fairly large portions.
  • offset stainless steel handles
  • rounded seams for ease of stirring
  • enamel coating may chip over time

3. Weber Style 6434

The Weber Style 6434 wouldn't be suitable for cooking large cuts of meat or fish, but rather should be used to toss and grill a hefty serving of vegetables or for a stir-fry style dish that you want to impart with some real fire and smoke flavor.
  • works with gas electric and charcoal
  • cleans easily with soap and water
  • eighth-inch slits allow for drainage

  • safe to clean in the dishwasher
