Grilling isn't always about bringing the kitchen into the backyard; sometimes it is about bringing the kitchen to the park, beach, or big game (or even not-so-big game). Thankfully, manufacturers long ago figured out that bulky kitchen equipment should stay right where it belongs. It wasn't long after that when the same thing was discovered as it relates to the backyard grill; it's no fun trying to lug the full-size grill around, even though that doesn't mean many of us have tried.

Where backyard grillers looking for an outing may have failed, owners of portable grills such as the Cuisinart CGG-180 Petit Gourmet Portable Gas Grill with VersaStand have succeeded. Featuring the VersaStand, which is an integrated base with telescoping legs, the portable grill can be used on a tabletop or extended for use from the ground. The versatility of a transforming portable grill helps take the experience to a whole new level--one where more time is spent grilling and less time wrestling with the grill.

With convenient propane canisters as the fuel source, a grilling session is never far away. The small size allows for the grill to heat up fast, yet it still has 145 square inches of grilling area. Complete with a lid latch and a spill resistant drip tray, grabbing the grill for some grilling-on-the-go is as easy as reaching for the oversize built-in handle.
