Grill sausages in a swing

Swinging basket grill by Heibe puts a new spin on your typical charcoal grill.

OK, so maybe it's not the most practical of grill designs, but what this Heibe Solino swinging basket grill lacks in practicality, it definitely makes up for in style.

The grill has a fixed-height bin that's filled with charcoal and can be removed easily when you want to empty it. The height of the suspended meats and veggies on the 50-centimeter diameter chrome-plated grate can be varied, letting you adjust the cooking time and temperature.

Maybe you won't be able to feed a big backyard crowd with this pint-sized swinging grill, but you'll be able to impart all of the smoky flavor without taking up 8 to 10 square feet of patio space.

Here's my only question: if food is stuck to the grating, do you have to grab the side of the basket with a mitt for scraping leverage?
