User Review: Grilliput
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $22
The UCO Grilliput Grill is perfect for a backpacking setup that is a little cramped for room, but expects the possibility of cooking some fresh caught fish or something of the like. The Grilliput collapses down to nothing and can be kept in a side compartment in a pack or even hung on an exterior pack hook if needed.
- Amazing collapsing design
- Perfect height for most pack stoves and burners
- A little on the heavy side
- Threads in screw-in ports could become dirty with extended use.
The UCO Grilliput is an amazing piece of camping or backpacking "kitchen" hardware. The design is perfect, and so far with the unit I purchased last season I see no faults in the workmanship or ease of use when proper care is taken. The height is perfect for a small wood or alcohol burner and it is very easy to set up and break down.
The compactness of the collapsed grill leaves much more room than a camp grate would and can slide into most side pockets of packs. The cleaning notch in the end is perfect for scraping grime and soot from the grill bars.
The Grilliput seems as though it will last for a long time, however, I will be sure to clean every nook and cranny of it (including the threads of the screw in legs and end bars) and if someone were to neglect this simple duty, the grill could become bothersome to assemble and dissemble.
Overall great product.
