Cuisinart CGG-180 Portable Gas Grill with VersaStand Review

by admin on May 13, 2011

This is Cuisinart’s next portable gas grill. You may have browsed around our website and come across another Cuisinart model, the Cusinart CGG-200 tabletop grill. This grill that you see here is pretty cute looking but it is large enough for a small group of people enjoying grilled steaks and burgers around a campfire.

You can see how it looks like below…

In fact, if you ask me which grill I would prefer, I would certainly go for this model instead simply because of a couple of reasons.

Lightweight, Great Portability

This particular model takes the crown for the lightest portable gas grill around on the market. It weighs only 13 pounds and you can carry it around like a briefcase with great ease. When it comes to portable grills, I like it as portable as possible and when it comes to large grills, I would like it feature packed and large with a lot of power!

You will love the convenience of carrying it around and also for storage purposes. You will not find any trouble putting this at any corner of your house although I do suggest putting it in a proper storage area. What’s also great about this grill is that it can be easily setup with its tubular aluminum legs and they are also easily locked into place giving you stability while cooking. It takes me just under 10 seconds to set this thing up, probably less.

For some of you, it might be a little low. A good way to elevate it is to get a grill stand (accessory needs to be purchased separately). I have the stand at home and it is as easy to setup as the grill itself.

This grill is best for tailgaters, outdoor grilling, beachside grilling, patio grilling or family BBQs.

Great Cooking Experience

The Cuisinart CGG-180T grill is small but it packs enough punch to gril everything fro steaks, burgers, fillets, vegetables, wings etc. It can handle it all, except for a large whole chicken or turkey. This grill is certainly not designed for cooking large foods.

One thing that I really like about it is it heats up pretty quickly and it is heats up to quite a good temperature to give you a satisfying grilling experience. It delivers up to 5,500 BTU of energy. The porcelain coated grill grate is great at heating up your food but don’t expect searing marks on it because it just won’t give you that.

Another thing that you will like is it is very efficient. Having this grill will definitely save your money on purchasing gas tanks.

Easy Cleaning

This is another feature that I really like. Easy cleaning and easy maintenance although I must say that drips do go underneath and they need a bit of cleaning. Just make sure that you do routine maintenance to it to prolong its lifespan.


My Final Verdict

The Cuisinart CGG-180T is a great grill for the outdoors. It is powerful enough to enjoy a great meal around the campfire and is efficient enough not to burn too much gas. Overall, this is a grill to be considered heavily if you are stuck on which portable grills to choose from.
