The Lotus Grill is a clever Australian import that has a lot of RV friendly points going for it. It runs on a very small amount of charcoal, heats to full cooking temperature in under five minutes, and is very easy to clean.
The Lotus Grill’s unique design uses a small mesh container to hold the charcoal and is quickly brought up to temperature by a small battery operated fan. The radiant stainless steel bowl design distributes heat easily and, unlike most grills, makes cleaning out drippings a breeze. The outer shell of the grill remains cool to the touch and can be easily set on a tabletop.
The Lotus Grill is $259 and can be found at several US retailers including Sur La Table.
