I was pleasantly surprised at how sturdy this Camp Grill is even though it is not heavy in weight. There are two Coghlan's grills listed on this item's Amazon site. One is called "heavy duty" and the other is this one, so I was expecting something flimsy. This grill is about 24" wide and is the right size to cover the average fire ring found at many campgrounds. You're supposed to use this grill over an open fire with your pots and pans - not for direct contact with food. Looking at the width of the rungs, I would have to agree that you need to place cookware on top of it and not place food directly on it, since the food might fall through the grate. I'm hoping that the grill is strong enough to hold up at high temps, but that remains to be seen. It would have been nice if there was a carrying bag or case, but I can fashion one of those myself. Another thing to note - the edges of the rungs and the bottoms of the legs are VERY sharp. My husband is going to use a burring tool to grind down the sharp edges a bit to avoid cuts on hands and punctures of our tent when packed into our cargo trailer.
I kept looking for a food safe grill, this seemed like the best option. Definitely a little flimsy if you put a cast iron pan on top, but it's a good size and does the job. I do wish they had kept the grill spacing consistent.
I've had this or versions of it for probably 30+ years now. They may seem flimsy or less-than-sturdy, but they are very lightweight, easily manoeverable and you can move the legs about fairly easyily on uneven surfaces or when trying to work around logs, etc. I love these things. Heckuva a lot better than trying to use the grates provided on some fire pits or trying to hold your food with a stick or whatever.
Does the job - nothing too fancy but for the price, it is worth it. Its not very big - we made campfire quesadillas and were able to fit about 8 on it. Would not recommend cooking directly on it (burgers and such) as it is not really sturdy enough.
Great little grill. We used it all the time camping and such. Easy to clean. I do wish you could adjust the height of tha grill though. Its lower than you think which is good for a bed of coals or a low fire, but anything higher and its tricky to work with. We ended putting logs underneath the legs to rise it up a bit. Otherwise fantastic camping grill.
