Whenever you\u2019re outdoors on an adventure, or you\u2019re just with a group of friends in the wild, you either have some food packed, or you\u2019ve decided that you\u2019re going to cook some on the spot. If you\u2019re a fan of being able to cook your food instead of packing ready made meals, then you probably have some experience with using grills like the Royal Gourmet Gas Grill. The Best Grills tend to be small enough for anyone who might be a bit short of storage space, and while it might not really identify as the Best Flat Top Grill, it\u2019s easily capable of helping you prepare a wide range of foods.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Royal Gourmet Gas Grill\r\nThe Royal Gourmet Gas Grill is a decent sized outdoor grill that\u2019ll allow you to cook a wide variety of meals outdoors, while still being small enough for easy portability. It\u2019s got 3 tube burners for good heat efficiency, and comes with a gas regulator for a 20 pound liquid propane or natural gas tank.\r\n\r\nPower\/Heating\r\nThe Royal Gourmet propane gas grill has a respectable cooking power of up to 27,000 BTU, with each of its 3 stainless steel burners having an individual output of about 9000 BTU. The Royal Gourmet Grill also sports a Piezo Ignition System, which eliminates the need for using your own lighter to have the burners light up. It\u2019s 3 ring shaped burners offer uniform heat distribution, and are a lot more efficient in cooking compared to the Blackstone TableTop Grill, which has only one burner. The propane gas grill is also quite portable, so you\u2019ll easily be able to pack or move around with it whenever you need to.\r\nSize\/Versatility\r\nWith a cooking area of up to 316 square inches, (slightly smaller than that of the blackstone table top griddle at 330 Square Inches) you\u2019ll get plenty of cooking space on the Royal Gourmet PD1300, and this should allow you to prepare enough food for a party of at least 4 people. The unit doesn\u2019t have any legs to stand on, so you\u2019ll only be able to place it on a table top or your car\u2019s tailgate.\r\nDurability\r\nThe grilling surface on the Royal Gourmet\u2019s grill grates happens to be porcelain coated, and this is done so as to prevent any corrosion through rusting, thereby increasing the overall durability of the grill. Also worth mentioning is like most gas grills, the PD1300 is backed by a 1 year full warranty, so incase you come across any problems from your new unit, do not hesitate to contact customer service, and they\u2019ll be glad to help sort things out.\r\nEase of Use\r\nGeneral cleaning and maintenance on the Royal Gourmet Gas Grill is pretty easy to do, so long as you make sure to clean it after each cooking session. Unlike the Camp Chef Flat Top Grill, the unit doesn\u2019t have any side tables, but it does have a side removable grease drip cup that\u2019s perfect for getting rid of any grease residue when cooking. It\u2019s grease cup is not as large as that of the Blackstone Table Top Griddle 22 inch grill, but it should suffice as long as you make sure to clean it every so often.\r\nValue\r\nWith a stainless steel control panel, a cast iron griddle cooking top and a fairly large cooking surface, the Royal Gourmet Gas Grill is easily one of the best grills to go for especially if you\u2019d prefer to have something that\u2019s small in size and still provides large cooking spaces. It\u2019s griddle is also non-stick, making it a lot easier to clean and maintain.\r\nRoyal Gourmet Gas Grill Wrap Up\r\nRoyal Gourmet grills are known to strike the perfect balance between affordability and good quality, and this is why they remain one of the most popular brands to turn to in search of reliable outdoor cooking tools.
