Solaire infrared grills pack power in a portable package
Solaire grills come in many different sizes, but the most popular version is the Solaire Anywhere
Portable Infrared Grill. This is the leading portable infrared grill.
The Solaire Anywhere Portable Infrared Grill a full powered infrared grill in a small and sturdy
package. The thing that sets its apart from other portable gas grills is what it has under the hood -
two infrared burners that put out twice as much heat as a conventional gas grill.
One of the big benefits of an infrared grill is a quick heat-up time, and the Solaire grill certainly
delivers. It goes from cold to ready to cook in 3 to 5 minutes! Cooking a steak only takes
about 5 minutes. When you are done, it cools down in maybe 5 minutes. So in 30 minutes, you can
go to from a cold grill, to cooking your food, to being ready to pack it up... that's fast! Cleanup
is also easy - like most infrared grills, the Solaire grill can just be left to run for a few minutes after
cooking is complete to burn off any remaining residue. The burners and grate both easily lift
Cooking on the Solaire grill requires some care, due to the high output and somewhat limited adjustability
of the burners. It works great for those that want to sear their steaks with a medium rare
inside. However, the lack of adjustability on the low end means you have to keep a very close eye on
what you are cooking. Foods that require "low and slow" cooking, like ribs and whole chiken breasts,
are extremely difficult to cook well. Be careful about cooking in a breeze... some users report
problems keeping the grill lit in windy conditions.
Most people that are looking at the Solaire grill are looking for a portable package, and the Solaire
delivers. The complete grill weighs about 20 pounds and measures 21"W x 12"H x 13"D, including the
carrying handles. It has carrying handles, latches to hold the lid closed in transit, and works with
1 pound portable propane cylinders (or normal 20 pound propane tanks with an adapter, not included with the
grill). It's perfect for tailgating, on the boat, camping, or with the RV. It comes standard in
304 stainless steel, with an option of upgrading to 216 stainless steel for use in high corrosion
environments, like on a boat. Build quality is high.
OK, so what a Solaire grill cost? The Solaire Anywhere! Infrared Grill 304 Stainless Steel Grill
model will run around $325. To upgrade to the Solaire Anywhere! Infrared Grill Marine Grade 316
Stainless Steel Grill, you are looking at around $500. Certainly not cheap... but if you want a lot
of grilling power in a small, durable, and convenient package, the Solaire infrared grill is definitely
worth your consideration.
