To buy: Cuisinart Professional Portable Gas Grill, $113 (originally $120) at

But don't let its size fool you, this pick is packed with power thanks to its quick-heating burner that uses 10,000 British Thermal Units (BTUs) and a 1-pound propane tank to cook meats and vegetables to perfection. The gas grill fires up by just turning the knob and is designed with a thermometer right on the lid, which indicates how hot it is inside and gives you more control while cooking.

The grill grate provides 184 square inches of cooking space, which is large enough to make your entire meal in one go. In fact, one impressed shopper was able to barbecue eight chicken thighs at the same time and also seared two large steaks on another occasion. Others have made burgers, sausages, fish, wings, and even pizza.

The Cuisinart's stainless steel grate is the reason the grill heats up quickly and keeps a consistent temperature, so you can feed hungry bellies faster. Its premium material prevents corrosion, which means you'll be using this for years to come. And since it's dishwasher-safe, cleanup is a breeze.

People love to use this at cookouts, tailgates, campsites, and even on their RVs. It's no wonder the Amazon bestseller has hundreds of five-star ratings so far.

"I hoped this grill would live up to my expectations, and it certainly has. I use it at home to cook a quick steak, burgers, or sausage. It heats up in five minutes or less and cooks evenly," wrote a reviewer. "I've used it camping, out at the lake, and all over."

Another who loves the Cuisinart grill so much titled their review: "Could charge triple — I'd still buy it" and said they get "incredible heat from this little beast." The at-home cook continued, "I'm cooking gourmet meals on this thing — burgers and dogs at the tailgate will be child's play."
