I’ve got to say, Coleman really surprised me with this one. This is a dynamic electric grill, and just by looking at it, you can tell it is a little out of the ordinary as far as outdoor grills go, which seems a little out of character for Coleman, who I usually rely on for providing the classics. Surprised, but not disappointed– that’s for sure.
There are quite a few possibilities with this grill, especially if you’re willing to purchase a few extra parts, which are sold separately. The grill is compatible with a variety of cooktops, which makes this a very dynamic, multi-purpose mechanism. You can throw a griddle, a full size griddle, and different stove top grates up there to open up your meal possibilities. Mix and match within your grill space to ensure you are whipping up a variety of foods on a variety of surfaces without sacrificing the flavor of anything that you’re grilling. That’s not a feature that every grill offers, so you can count on the fact that I was pretty impressed.
There are some other pretty great features that come along with the COleman RoadTrip LXX, too. Of course, I’m a big fan of matchless lighting, and the in start ingnition system that is featured by this grill is a consistent, reliable, and simple solution to getting the fire started. The cooking space is more than big enough, with 285 inches of grill space, and a consistent temperature capacity of 22,000 BTUs. Steel hooks allow you to hang your tools in a sensible, simple, and sturdy manner.
The grill is built to fold up and pack away in a spatially efficient and compact manner. Truly meant for the casual road trip or tailgating experience, this is another feature that puts this grill slightly ahead of a lot of its main competition. It’s easy to wheel around, but it’s also very light. In general, it’s an impressively portable grill, to be certain.
Coleman is one of my favorite brands, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be critical. My complaints are mostly minor– little things, like the plastic handle, which I don’t think will last long if I’m cooking away at high temperatures. Also, it doesn’t perform to the standard of an extremely high end grill, like a Weber, for example– but it’s not priced like one either!
In general, Coleman really impressed me with this light, simple, and portable grill. I would recommend it, and think it delivers great value for the price!
