Cuisinart Quality for the Outdoors

The Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill is designed for the serious chef and grillmaster. Those of you who understand that grilling over charcoal leads to the tastiest barbecue. And by using a quality charcoal grill will make all the difference.

The Cuisinart is highlighted by its colorful green enamel-coated steel lid and prominent integrated temperature gauge. The GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill promises to deliver exceptional quality that will withstand outdoor elements and survive years of high-temperature grilling.

Convenient Charcoal Grilling

Grilling with charcoal requires time, patience, and active interaction with your grill. To get the most food flavor and tenderness, the grillmaster must pay close attention to temperature and understand when to make adjustments. It’s both a science and an art. Yet no charcoal grill offers the ability to so easily adjust, add and remove coals as does the Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill.

The innovative GrateLifter mechanism cooking grate lifting system gives the grill-master access to the charcoal bed without ever having to touch the dirty cooking grate. With the lift engaged, the grate raises effortlessly out of the way when you open the lid.

This gives you easy, safe access to the coals beneath the grate, add coals for extended cooking and adjust the location of the coals to help fine-tune direct heating temperatures. It also comes in handy when you want to smoke foods using indirect heating by letting you easily shift coals to the unused portion of the grill.

All of this can now be accomplished without removing the cooking grate — even when the grate is fully loaded and cooking!

This system also makes lighting coals simple and clean. Easily light the coals in the firebox with the grate in place. When the coals are hot, use the Lift feature and spread the coals without removing the cooking grate. And when the coals turn to ash, use the Lift feature to raise the cooking grate and brush the ash into the ash tray. It’s simple, easy, safe, and clean.

Versatile Grilling at Home or Away

The Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill combines the size of a family charcoal grill with the versatility and size for the perfect portable grill. Its spacious 240 square inch grilling surface offers enough area to cook up to 10 burgers, 8 steaks or 8 chicken breasts at a time.

Its compact size also ensures the grill will not take up a lot of space on your patio, like those larger, full-sized grills do. Two removable Cuisinart GrateLifter Side Tables (model number CST-152, sold separately) provides extra shelf space and comes in handy when grilling away from home.

The grill fits comfortably on most patio tables, or docks on the Cuisinart Folding Grill Stand (model number CFGS-150, sold separately) for compact, upright grilling at full-size height. The Cuisinart All Foods Gas Grill Cover (model number CGC-21, sold separately) protects the grill when the grill is not in use.

Small in size, the grill measures only 26 x 18 x 19 inches when in transport mode. It weighs less than 30 pounds, and has two attached side handles. It is easy to load in and out of your car or trailer and transport to your desired grilling location.

From backyard barbecues, to tailgating before the big game; from parties and picnics, to camping out with friends or family; one thing is for sure — with the Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill, your grilling experience will never be the same!
