Otzi Ember Portable Dual Person Grill *Stainless Steel*
Hard to give a real thorough review when you receive during Canada’s winter wonderland. I consider myself more than a weekend warrior overlander and have been cooking in the wilderness for over 45 years. Since I exploded my first can of Campbell soup, due to the inability of not removing the lid before placing on a open fire. Oh well, we all have our stories.
Had some adventure touring friends visiting over the holidays and I decided to show off my new purchase. Size, ease of assembly and performance was a huge hit. What was I thinking, wasting the storage room for years hauling, barbecues and fire pits. This thing works amazing and I can’t understand why every trunk or adventure motorcycle doesn’t have one. This grill deserves the Q award from James Bond 007. Highly recommended, service and communication was top notch. Well done…..
Only cooked on it once so far but everything worked as advertised. Fits in the van nicely, case is large enough to get the grill back into. It holds heat for a long time so don't get into a hurry without using hotpads. It's an expensive grill and it remains to be seen how well it stands up to camp life. Our flatpack grills have lasted 3 years and are just now starting to wear out. Expecting this one to go much longer.
I have the Ember Stainless. Definitely working as described. The engineering is great on this thing. I mean, it folds flat and works great as a grill, what else could you ask for? I've used it three time so far. Each time, the bottom panel seems to get a bit more warped, but it honestly doesn't affect the performance at all. I've had to build some HOT fires to get enough coals to cook. It's working great for van life!
Quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service!
So far I have used it once to grill up a couple of steaks and am 100% satisfied with my Ember. I'm really looking forward to the utility of it. My wife and I road trip in the summer with a Gulfstream Vintage Cruiser travel trailer. It has a little gas grill which attaches to the back end of the trailer and hooks up to the RV propane. I've used it once three years ago. Absolutely hated it. As our trailer is pretty small, a 19 footer, we have limited space for hauling a bigger Weber-style grill. The Ember in it's storage case will easily stow in a forward cargo compartment of slip into a tub in the bed of our truck. Another big plus: all of our children have left the nest. I used to grill for them and for their friends using big charcoal drum-style grills on our back deck. Since it's usually just my wife and I now, the Ember will do double duty for just the two of us.
