1. Fuego Element F21C Carbon Steel Gas Grill

Fuego Element F21C Carbon Steel Gas GrillThe design and performance of this gas grill makes it stand out among others available in the market. Instead of heating the grates directly, it uses conventional currents to circulate hot air within the dome that is beneath the cooking surface. A built-in thermometer will let you monitor the dome temperature while the hot air circulating inside it will ensure uniform and fast heating of the cooking surface. The cooking surface is made with 15 porcelain coated cooking grates which heat up quickly and evenly and leave perfect sear marks on the steaks. The structure is mounted on a stand with wheels which can be locked in place using a lever. The electronic ignition system will make the unit easy to use while the 346 square inch cooking surface provides enough space for grilling about 12 burgers at a time. Its 21,000 BTU burner efficiently utilizes the fuel and also ensures that maximum moisture is retained in the food.
