The 8 Best Kettle Grills – Guide

You want to shine with your grilling skills, but never had the right grill for it? With a kettle grill, you have endless possibilities at your disposal, with which you can easily conjure up a variety of recipes. A kettle grill is not only suitable for simple grilling, but also offers you the possibility to prepare various dishes and meals in the cooking process.

Our checklist for kettle grills informs you about size, quality and safety. In the product recommendations you can choose the right kettle grill for your garden.

Checklist For Kettle Grills

Size
  • If you often want to grill for larger groups of 5 to 8 people, you should choose a kettle grill with a diameter of 57 centimeters or more. Also, make sure you have a comfortable working height of about 60 to 80 centimeters.
  • If you want to grill only rarely and only for yourself or smaller groups of less than 5 people, a small kettle grill with a maximum diameter of 47 centimeters is suitable without any problems.
  • When choosing a grill, consider how much space you have available.
  • If you want to be mobile with the grill, pay attention not only to a small size but also to a low weight.
Quality
  • If you want to grill only occasionally, then a chrome-plated grill grate and a chrome-plated grill are perfectly sufficient for the beginning.
  • If you want to use the kettle grill very often and the durability of the material is particularly important to you, then a grill and grill grate made of stainless steel make sense. An additional enamel coating effectively prevents rusting.
  • To ensure that the temperature in the grill remains constant, you should attach importance to a high-quality, precisely fitting processing of the material.
  • If you want to grill at specific, adjustable temperatures, a grill with a built-in lid thermometer is ideal.
  • To ensure that enough oxygen reaches the charcoal during grilling, the grill should ideally have adjustable vents both above and below the embers.
Safety
  • To ensure that the lid of the kettle grill does not pose a danger when placed on grass or other easily combustible surfaces, it is best to choose a grill with a lid holder.
  • Make sure that the grill has a secure stand and that the connecting pieces are sturdy so that it does not tip over or wobble.
  • An important indication of the safety of the kettle grill is a GS certification as well as a long warranty from the manufacturer of 5 to 10 years.
  • Safe as well as easy cleaning is possible thanks to an additionally installed ash basket, which directly collects all the ash that accumulates.
