Resumee

The Stainless steel charcoal grill by Esbit was processed qualitatively well. The special thing about the grill is that it is incredibly compact. In just a few steps you can fold up the appliance and transport it in the practical carrying bag. The heat is evenly distributed over the entire grill surface. The grill grate is height-adjustable in three steps. Ventilation slots are integrated on the sides of the casing to supply the charcoal briquettes with oxygen. However, the grill does not lack air supply, as the charcoal lies open on the charcoal plate. With the included windscreen, you can protect the charcoal from wind blasts and swirling embers. However, since the wind direction can change and there is only one windshield for two open sides, it would be advantageous to have another windshield available.

Pro

  • Even distribution of heat
  • Well suited for transport
  • The grill grate is height adjustable
  • Compactness

Cons

  • The air supply is not adjustable
  • Open on both sides
  • Housing gets very hot

360° View

Its compactness and wearing comfort are particularly convincing. The air supply, however, is improvable.

The charcoal is nice and even grey. Now you are ready to go.

Commissioning/assembly

The charcoal grill is quick and easy to set up. You can fix everything by hand and don't need any tools. You assemble the stand with the supplied screws. An opening was inaccurately processed, therefore only 3 of 4 screws fit into the respective opening. The stand is fixed anyway.

Functions

The grill grate is height adjustable. You can position the grill in three different heights. The grill comes with a windscreen, which you can attach to the sides as an option.

Transport

Grilling

Before you can use the grill for the first time, you must first burn it in. During this process, production residues are removed from the appliance.

Is the bag heat resistant?

The bag is made of stable synthetic fibre material, thus tearproof, but meltable. So: Don't fill it with hot ash!
