While It’s a great concept, and an easy design to set up, I simply cannot give this grill a positive review. It’s just too flimsy. My unit arrived with the locking mechanism of one of the risers broken, so it cannot be carried by the shoulder strap or handle the way it is supposed to be carried, and the grilling plate appears to be rather fragile- some sort of ceramic. One of the nubs that secures it into place with the grill side up was already broken off of it. As for use, while it is easy to light, it simply does not get hot enough for efficient cooking. Certainy, you can ultimately get your burgers and such to cook, but you will not have any searing, leaving the darker char marks you would expect from grilling… even when run on high. So, while a practical concept, there are some serious design flaws that must be fixed.

This griddle is compact enough to fit on a shelf in the basement storage bin of my motorhome, but is large enough to cook six pancakes at a time, or bacon, sausages and eggs for several people. The non-stick smooth griddle surface is easy to clean and is reversible for grilling meat without the flare-ups that are typical of open grate gas grills. It takes me only about a minute to attach the propane tank and valve assembly, which required no tools. The red knobs on each end unlock the griddle and serve as leveling legs. Side panels shield the cooking surface from outdoor breezes and the flame is completely enclosed shielding it from the effects of all but the highest winds. After turning on the gas, just one click of the igniter button was sufficient to get the grill started. The flame burns so cleanly, its virtually invisible. From a cold start this griddle was ready to cook pancakes in about four minutes. As you can see from the photo that I’ve included, the center of the griddle gets slightly hotter than the ends, but the small difference is not enough to adversely affect my cooking experience. Combining a non-stick spray with the treated surface of the griddle itself, makes the entire assembly very easy to clean after use. Cooks who’re accustomed to cooking meat on an open flame grill will find that this grill cooks much slower, but it avoids the drippy mess and flame-ups because the meat grilling side provides little channels for the grease; routing it into a handy grease cup on the front. When great weather allows us to move our grilling or griddling from inside our motorhome to the outdoors, this compact George Foreman camp and tailgate grill does a great job, is reasonably portable and doesn’t take up too much space on a picnic table or in the basement storage bin of our motorhome. We won’t be camping without it.

Howes (Nashua, NH) – This review is from: George Foreman GP200R Portable Propane Camp & Tailgate Grill, Portable Gas Grill, Camping Grill, Red (Kitchen) Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?) As luck would have it, this camp stove came too late for my family’s camping trip to Maine. Instead, we made do with a classic Coleman’s camp stove. So how does this stove compare? Well, both of them use the same mini liquid propane tanks that can be bought in supermarkets and sporting good stores from across the country. This one is a bit more bulky/heavy with large handles, and the tilting mechanism. It is also more complicated, seems a bit more fragile and is much more expensive. For the price, you get a much more functional and easier to use stove. Where I could not figure out how to get anything but full blast heat with the Coleman, the fuel regulator that came with this one made it easy to generate a wide range of heats. And I don’t have to buy matches, this one comes with a built in ignitor button, although if that goes wrong you have the option of inserting a long match. The fat draining tilting system is great for cleanly cooking perfect bacon. And the cooking surface is built in, I don’t have to bring a separate griddle. It’s all built in. With the Coleman, I had to haul in a bulky separate griddle, which in my case was just a bit too big for comfortable use. The cooking surface is large enough for a dozen or so strips of bacon, and cooking temperatures reached as high as 450° or so. You should remember that this is not a George Foreman style grill that allows both top and bottom cooking like the electric ones you would use in your kitchen, so it isn’t like a rough country panini maker. It’s just a camp stove. So, while I have (as of yet unfounded) concerns about the durability of this complicated stove, I consider it far superior functionally to an old fashioned basic Coleman stove.
