Many charcoal grills do fine on their own, but this Vision Grills Kamado review will show that small changes make all the difference, getting a spot in our category for best grills. Features such as an electric starter, wood oven cooking capabilities, and a cast iron vent help it claim a spot on our best kamado grills list, as well as stand out among the rest.

Why We Like It – Vision Grills Kamado

The Vision Grills Kamado is a kamado grill with an even cooking area. The top vent ensures even heat distribution.

  • Electric starter helps with getting fires started
  • Can replicate wood oven cooking
  • Cast iron vent for temperature control
  • Temperature is not always consistent
  • Comes with stainless griddles instead of cast iron


In a style reminiscent of the big green egg, the Vision Grills Kamado is easily able to get to a high temperature as well as go the low and slow method easily. You can compare the big green egg vs Weber to see which one is better. The bottom vent ensures even heat distribution, no matter what temperature you’re cooking in, you’ll have consistent results. Unlike in our Blaze Kamado review, the Vision Kamado grill can handle both high and low temperatures. For another versatile Kamado-style grill, read out Kamado Joe Classic 2 review.

Coming in at around 200 lbs, the blaze kamado is not easy to move around. Much like the Weber Summit Charcoal gas grill, once you place it, it’s most likely staying there. But the large cooking space is worth it, being able to place large amounts of food to cook is always a good thing. Whether using the kamado-style grill as a grill smoker or an oven, the Vision Grills Kamado has a use for every meal.

Being constructed from a combination of stainless steel and cast iron, the Vision Grills Kamado is more than capable of enduring the test of time. Like the Primo Grill, make sure to take care of your grill, and it will last for years to come. The cooking grates are stainless steel over cast iron however, that may affect how you prepare your meals.

Ease of Use

Similar to the Stok Quattro, the Vision Grills Kamado is one of those grills that is hard to start off with, but over time once you get to know the intricacies of the grill you’ll know it like the back of your hand. It takes some practice, especially with the bottom vent, but it is more than worth it.


One thing to note is that if you plan to continue to use the electric starter supplied by Vision Grills, replacement parts will have to be bought for continued use. There is always the standard method of lighting a grill, but after using the electric starter, it’s hard to go back.

Vision Grills Kamado Wrap Up

Setting itself apart from other kamado grills, the Vision Grills Kamado is as unique as it is versatile, offering several methods to make a great meal. Features such as a cast iron vent, wood oven capabilities, and easy ignition make this grill stand out from the rest. Even with issues regarding the temperature and material choice, don’t let that deter you from making a worthwhile investment with the Vision Grills Kamado.
