Kenyon All Season Portable Electric Grill Review

,

If you need a high-end electric grill, you should take a long look at the Kenyon All-season Electric Grill. Made from marine grade stainless steel, this unit is designed to withstand salt water, and corrosive elements, and still perform. It will sear and grill, but it is very small and well over a thousand dollars.

Full Review – Kenyon All Season Portable Grill

If you are reading this review you probably live in a situation where an open flame is not allowed. Electric grills don’t generally produce the kind of heat that gas or charcoal grills can. This is electric grill from Kenyon is close. Part of the reason is that unlike more electric grills this one is built by a company that specializes in electric cooking. Kenyon builds portable and built-in electric grills as well as electric cooktops so they know what they are doing. They also build high-quality products in their factory in Connecticut.

The All Season Grill is Kenyon’s smallest and you actually have to buy it directly from them. Many of their products are built specifically for marine applications so this is a grill that retains its appearance and continues to perform for a long time. This model has 155 square inches of cooking space which is comparable to small portable grills. It weighs in at 24 pounds and has two handles for easy carry. The heat output from a 1,300-watt electric heat element produces temperatures around 500 degrees F/260 degrees C.

This grill is also designed for pretty specific use. There is a disposable drip tray at the bottom and to keep this grill from producing smoke that pan needs to be filled with liquid. There are specific methods for cleaning and maintaining this grill and considering the price I strongly recommend that the owner follow these to the letter. If you do so, I am confident that this grill will last for a very long time.

One last note. Generally speaking, marine-grade stainless steel is 316 grade. This grill is billed as built from marine grade but is actually 304 stainless. This isn’t really an issue and it should be able to take the elements, but close proximity to salt water is a rough environment and I won’t make any promises about it being able to take the punishment, though I trust this company with making marine-grade products.
