Product Features

Product Features

The types of grills and cooking items for outdoors vary widely -- which means that whatever your food passions, you're likely to find a great match that will turn out tasty food for you and your family. As you narrow down the type or types that are best for you, consider a few product features that may influence your decision. Those include power source, material, and price. Review them carefully as you look at each type.

Power Source

If grills or cooking items are powered by a fuel source, that source is typically gas/propane, electricity, or fuel. The cooking method differs slightly, as do the pros and cons based on personal preference.

Material

The materials choices in grills and cooking items for outdoor use varies widely, too. Dinnerware may be made from plastic, while grills are often constructed from metal, such as stainless steel.

Price

Grills and cooking items range in price from dinnerware that's quite affordable to very expensive grills that cost thousands of dollars.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Whether you envision yourself becoming a grilling expert or are already well on your way to cooking up a storm in the out-of-doors, there are several purchase considerations to carefully review as you ponder what grill or outdoor cooking item is right for you. Size is of particular concern; your grill should meet your needs for the present but also be able to adapt to the future. In addition, the type of food the grill or cooking appliance is intended for, as well as location and storage, are necessary to consider. Use this short guide to help.

Size

Size of grills and cooking items for outdoors varies greatly for big-ticket items such as grills, but even dinnerware comes in a range of sizes, from bowls to salad plates to dinner plates.

Food

Grills and cooking items for the outdoors often differ based on the food type for which they're intended. For example, deep fryers may have a basket designed for fish or a turkey.

Location/Storage

All grills and cooking items intended for the outdoors must be located and stored in a spot that will protect them in the off-season and during inclement weather.
