When you’re camping, you often have to just stick to burgers and steaks to fill your stomach. But what if you can enjoy pancakes for breakfast, hot sandwiches for lunch, and steak and veggies for dinner? Yes, this actually possible now – all thanks to Eureka Gonzo Grill. It is an all-in-one cooking device that turns its cooking surface easily from griddle to stove to grill. Therefore, it’s capable of cooking a variety of recipes, aside from just burgers and meat steaks.
The small grill has three cooking options, and it is fairly easy to switch modes with the included metal hook. So, you can cook desired food even in outdoor areas. Even cleanup is easy like other well-designed grills and stoves. Just wipe it out when finished cooking and scrape the top with the included scraper.
One of the major drawbacks of this grill is that it’s not easy to pack, considering its weight. The Gonzo weighs 14.2 lbs., according to company specifications. But that does not include gas canisters or food. Another disadvantage is that there is no dial indicator for high, medium, or low. So, one simply has to guess when controlling the flame. Even the lid tends to fall off when transporting it.
It is better to use the little grill for car camping, tailgating, picnics, or even as a mini grill for apartment dwellers. But it is not suitable for remote or lightweight camping, where lighter options, like Jetboil, or a simple campfire can perform adequately.
Even a conventional stove can do most of Gonzo’s tricks provided a cast iron skillet is added to the stove. But if you don’t want to put much effort into converting your stove for cooking different meals, you may purchase Gonzo Grill from the official website for $190.
