FAQs

  • What size grill set do I need?
    • It depends on the type of grilling you do. If you are only occasionally grilling hamburgers, hot dogs and potentially steaks, you can get away with a basic grill tool set. You can always individually add tools as needed, but it is typically cheaper to buy a set with everything you need right off the bat.
  • Why not just use regular kitchen utensils for grilling? 
    • Grill tools are manufactured with long handles to keep your hands away from the  heat. The tools are designed to withstand extremely high temperatures. You will be much safer using grill tools.
  • What should I look for when picking a grill tool set? 
    • Look for stainless steel tools. Your tools will likely be exposed to the elements at some point. A quality stainless steel product will not rust. Once you pick the best grill tool set for you in terms of size, check out the reviews of people who have actually used the product. Reviews, especially when there are a lot of them, can provide excellent information on things like quality, customer support, product problems (if any), and more. Carefully look over the fine details of the tools to be sure they have the features you are looking for.
  • Do grill tools make a good gift?
    • Generally, yes these tools are an excellent gift for anyone who is into grilling. Even if a person has been grilling for years, a high-quality grill tool set can often be a nice gift to upgrade an existing set. Grill tool sets are often given as gifts for Christmas, birthdays, and Father’s Day to name a few occasions.
  • Can I leave my grill tools outside? 
    • You can leave your tools outside if they are made from a material that is designed to withstand the weather such as a quality stainless steel. However, we advised to bring your tools inside, particularly if you are not going to use them for some time (i.e. winter time).
