This innovative travel-sized charcoal grill is perfect for tailgating, picnics, camping, small apartments and more. Ready to cook in minutes—no more endless waiting for the coals to be ready—this pint-sized cooker puts out some serious heat. Thanks to a battery-operated fan that works just like a bellows, the LotusGrill adjusts from low to high heat with a simple twist of the dial. The bowl-shaped interior reflects the heat onto the grilling surface, while the double-walled construction ensures that the outer bowl remains cool enough to touch—making it easy to reposition even when cooking. Charcoal burns inside a closed mesh container that helps prevent stray sparks and flare-ups. Grill grid and inner bowl are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

To start the LotusGrill, fill the central container with charcoal—it may be necessary to break it into smaller chunks to get it to fit. Place the priming plate in the center of the inner bowl and squirt a ring of fire-starting gel onto the plate. Turn on the fan, then ignite the gel. Check that the gel has ignited (CAUTION: Use care—you may not be able to see the flame) then carefully place the charcoal container over the plate. Place the grate on the grill and lock both sides to the base. Let the grill warm briefly, then use the control knob to adjust the heat to the desired intensity.

Lotus Grill is the
I took the Lotus Grill with me to a music festival (which regretfully involved camping) and it made my trip so much more tolerable!

When we returned from camp at midnight and were craving something warm, this little grill was ready to go in minutes. Pour on a ring of lighter gel, fill the center container with coals, light the gel, replace the container and secure the grill grates. We were grilling sausages and bell peppers in 3 minutes! So much easier and more portable than a huge kettle grill or typical BBQ and a lot nicer than a tiny camping stove. I'm pretty sure I convinced everyone in my camp to buy one.

The only qualm I had was the fact that the dishwasher didn't get it back to it's sparkling out-of-the-box newness, but that's probably due to the fact that I let it sit in my car for 3 days before I washed it. It took some elbow grease to really clean it up. Totally worth it tough

Works exactly as described!
I was a little skeptical when I first saw this and even after I purchased it, I was a little nervous. I have to say this is one of the best items I have gotten in a long time. The product is extremely sturdy, performs exactly as described and shown in the video- even down to the outer bowl remaining cool to the touch during cooking. We used it for a rooftop cookout-burgers and sausage links and later, s'mores. We have plans to take this camping with us in the future. I am really excited about this item and can't wait to use it again

perfect beach grill especially with kids
We recently moved to a beach town and we've been able to recreate my childhood memories of hibachi BBQing on the beach. I was going to get the $9.99 hibachi special from the local super market, but was skeptical of quality.

I did some research and came across the Lotus Grill and was very intrigued by the smokeless aspect and the cool base since we have little kids.

I am so glad we purchased this grill. True to the marketing, there is no smoke so we don't have to constantly move around the grill to avoid the smoke in the breeze and the base really stays 'room temperature' which is great for safety and for being able to readjust in the sand or even move it to another location while grilling! One thing to note is that in an open area, there is likely to be a breeze across the top of the grill which affects how hot the grate is and makes cooking time a bit longer. That's just an environmental consideration though and easily mitigated by setting up out of the wind if its too much of an issue.

My one grievance with the grill is that you can't seem to buy accessories or replacement parts in the United States. I'd love to get a top for it and/or a replacement charcoal basket for when/if that ever goes and there doesn't seem to be a way to do that.

Does the cooked food ever have a 'gel' flavor from the lighting gel used?
nscherm on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: I have used this twice and did not notice any flavor from the gel at all. I purchased the gel specifically for the Lotus Grill. It's odorless ethanol and seems to burn off pretty quickly after the charcoal is ignited.

Does the Lotus grill come with a lid?
watchmaker on Jun 19, 2014
Best Answer: no. It shows a lid at the end of the video and in the description of the grill it says it has one. I love SURLATABLE but this time it was a disappointment that they wouldn't change the info.

Does this grill give the authentic "charcoal " flavor that you get from a regular charcoal grill?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, since charcoal is used in this grill, you'll get the same charcoal flavor you would from other grills.

Where do I get the lighter gel for my Lotus Grill?
Theodore on Oct 9, 2014
Best Answer: Neither our local Sur la Table nor hardware or big box stores carry it. I found it on Amazon- not the recommended brand, but several options. Note to Sur la Table: grill is great, but if you sell it, you should also sell the gel. I nearly returned it because of gel issue.
