The Kool Grill is a portable device that's been designed to offer you food that tastes like it's been cooked on a traditional charcoal barbecue, but without the long wait times associated with those. After you turn it on and add lighter gel, along with a handful of charcoal, it's meant to be ready for cooking in five minutes and it can grill food in as little as six. This device requires no electricity or gas and comes in four different shades.

How It Works

With a standard charcoal barbecue, you'll need to add a ton of charcoal to the pit and wait for as long as 30 or 40 minutes for the charcoal to be heated. However, the charcoal cage within each Kool Grill s inner bowl will require only a handful of charcoal that will heat up in just five minutes' time. After the microfurnace within each cage heats the charcoal within it so it can cook your food, your Kool Grill's airflow system will keep air circulating throughout the entire device. This air will pass from the inner bowl to the outer bowl, ensuring that the outer bowl always stays cool to the touch, even as there's food being cooked on the grill's top rack.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Choose Location For Grill

    Before you use your Kool Grill, you'll need to choose a location for it and place it there on its base. The location of your choice could be either indoors or outdoors, and since this grill is battery operated, it won't matter if it's sitting near an electrical outlet or not.

  2. Fill Charcoal Cage

    Next, before turning on your grill, fill its inner cage with a handful of charcoal. If you're using the grill to smoke food (one of its two additional functions), you'll need to add a few wood chips, too. You'll be able to pull the top rack off your grill to access the inner cage in seconds, and put it back on in seconds once you're done filling the cage. When the cage is full, power up your device and wait five minutes for the charcoal to heat up.

  3. Add Food of Choice

    Once the aforementioned five minutes have passed, and your grilling rack's back on top of your device, fill it with the food you want to cook. This could include a few pieces of meat, some vegetables or even a frozen pizza. The food you add to the rack doesn't have to be thawed, but grilling food from a frozen state may extend the time it takes for it to cook. If you'd like to roast your food instead of grilling it, you'll have the option of placing the included roasting lid overtop of your grilling rack.

  4. Grill, Roast or Smoke Food

    Let the food on your grilling rack cook for six minutes, checking it occasionally to see how it's doing. Depending on what you're cooking, you might choose to flip certain pieces of food, but this isn't absolutely necessary—regardless, they'll still cook all the way through. After six minutes have passed, either remove the food with your choice of utensil and turn off your device or let it cook for a bit longer before turning your Kool Grill off.


  • Compact and Portable

    Each Kool Grill is smaller and more lightweight than a traditional barbecue grill, and each one will take up less space in any location than one of those. Along with being lightweight, the outer chamber of each of these stays cool, which means you'll be able to move yours around even while you're using it for cooking. You may not be able to get a traditional barbecue grill into your vehicle for transportation purposes, but one of these grills will fit into virtually any vehicle. Each one even comes with a black carrying case!

  • Four Shades Available

    This grilling device comes in red, yellow, brown and green, so you'll be able to choose the shade you like best or the one you think looks most attractive in your yard or kitchen.

  • Dishwasher Safe Parts

    You won't be able to clean your entire Kool Grill in your dishwasher, but you will be able to safely add its grilling rack and grease bowl to a load. Therefore, you won't be faced with as much scrubbing as you would be if you were to use a traditional charcoal grill, which would certainly be too large to fit into a dishwasher. It's best to wash the grease bowl and grilling rack after each use of your grill, and these can be detached quickly from the rest of the device after it has cooled down.

  • Two Additional Functions

    The Kool Grill was mainly created with grilling in mind, but it can also serve as a roaster and a mini-smoker if you're craving a slightly different taste. As alluded to above, you will need to grab some wood chips to use it as a mini-smoker and the included roasting lid to use it as a roaster.

Positive Points

  • Promotes Healthy Eating

    Although you can use it to cook desserts such as cakes or snack foods like popcorn, the Kool Grill does promote healthy eating, all things considered. This is due to its grease bowl that will soak up excess fat and grease from whatever you're cooking and allow you to dispose of it later by simply dumping out the bowl. As a result, this fat and grease won't make it into your body, adding extra fat and calories to your diet. The grease bowl will come in especially handy when you're cooking (and eating) meat that tends to be fatty.

  • No Gas Or Electricity Required

    Most barbecues require potentially flammable gas to run, and the majority of cooking devices that don't require gas will require you to run up your home's electricity bill while using them. Fortunately, the Kool Grill runs solely by battery, which means you'll be able to use yours almost anywhere, including at a campsite or cottage that lacks electricity. You'll also be able to continue enjoying the hot food this appliance is able to produce if your power has temporarily gone out.


  • Hold Onto Outer Bowl

    If your device is on and you want to move it, even a few feet across your yard or kitchen, you must only touch the outer chamber that stays cool to the touch. This is the part of the device that'll be red, green, yellow or brown, depending on your original color choice. The other parts of each device won't remain cool, so you should only touch them with utensils while it's powered up. If you'd like to remove your device's grilling rack and grease bowl immediately after use, use an oven mitt or potholder instead of your bare hands.
