Camping grill test: table grills in the check – AUTO BILD

Large grills, such as those used at home on the balcony, terrace or in the garden, are usually too unwieldy for mobile barbecuing fun. We have therefore four special camping grills for on the go tested. Some come to the customer already assembled – like the Campingaz grill. It is also a good alternative for long-term campers or travelers who have a large rear garage and stand in one place for a long time. Other devices have to be assembled for use – packed again, but they save a lot of space during transport. For example the Skotti gas grill, which is so flat that it can be carried on trips in a backpack or fits in a side compartment of a car. Since charcoal grills are forbidden on many parking spaces due to the risk of fire, two gas grills are also being tested.

The so-called “toast test” shows best how heat is distributed over the entire grill surface.

Each grill arrived in its original packaging. First test: How easy and understandable it is to assemble the devices. Second section: How quickly do the devices reach which temperature? The heat measurements were taken after five and a further ten minutes. The temperature was measured on the grill grate and under the device. After the heating phase, the toast test was used on the gas grill. At the end there was the practical test with sausages, steaks and halloumi vegetable skewers.
