Italian ingenuity led to the creation of this grill, a cooking grid that lets you cook in your fireplace or over a campfire. This traditional, cast iron grill provides a special Tuscan accent whether you grill vegetables, fish or poultry. The freestanding grill adjusts to three different cooking heights. The cooking grid measures 16¼" by 18¼", excluding its wooden handles; 16" tall. Simple assembly required. Made in Italy.

This grill represents a pretty good idea - self standing frame with some simple height adjustments, and a moveable grill.
How would you like to spend $175 (with shipping) and find that the welding is so bad that beads of steel are stuck all over the grill - not 3 or 4 either - maybe 50. It really looks like a young kid on his first practice in junior high (when they still had shop) built this. I would expect to find something like this for $25 at some kind of closeout store.
I've never gotten anything from Sur La Table that I didn't feel pretty good about - this is something else. The interesting thing is I think it might work fine at the beach, but the price offers more than something that is functionally little more than old auto parts cobbled together - and this is from the country that makes Ferraris!
I would send it back, but the hassle factor isn't worth it from Maui
This grill is so practical and sturdy. A wonderful way to grill in the fireplace. The supports sit permanently in most fire places.
Simple and functional, I find the look perfect for the beach and for the fireplace. I have an identical one that I purchased over 20 years ago at William Sonoma and it is still in great shape after lots of use and travel.
Best Answer:Enter an answer to this question.When the grill is in place, the far end is tilted upwards ever so slightly. Consequently, when grilling meat, for example, the fat slowly runs down the bottom of the grill grates and falls into the black tray, which makes cleanup a lot easier. We used it last night: Rosemary crusted NY Strip over oak coals - easy and delicious. It is odd that they don't identify it as a grease tray and that it's barely visible in the single page of instructions
