Review of the LotusGrill

Barbecue season is here! German manufactured barbecue Lotus Grill has been on the market for a few years now. Designed as an ultra-portable grill, Lotus Grill is advertised as being a smokeless charcoal grill that is easy to use, time efficient and easy to clean, while still giving you the true barbecue experience.

After pondering for quite some time, whether our small city balcony should be equipped with a barbecue, we decided to get the Lotus Grill. It is not that much of an investment actually as the price of the barbecue lies around 110 CHF. It comes in a handy carrying pouch, and you additionally need to buy a burning paste and some charcoal.

Lotus Grill works as follows: a battery driven ventilator combined with the burning paste burns the charcoal in its little recipient. The charcoal becomes incandescent without any flames after about 3 to 4 minutes, so the grill is super fast to start. The heat is diffused directly onto the grill above the coal recipient and by diffusion by the stainless bowl. Since the coal recipient is closed, no fat can directly drip into any open fire and potentially cause flames. The coal should stay active for about one hour, which is more than enough to prepare a barbecue for two people. After usage, let the grill cool down (especially the charcoal recipient stays very hot), then clean the grill and the bowl..
