What is the best way to grill?
Good things take time. Grilling over an open fire is one of the most original ways of preparing food. It takes time to gather the firewood, get the fire going and cook the food until it is juicy and cooked through.
Take your time, because grilling has people gather around the fire and is the truest form of socialising. Barbecues are particularly enjoyable in large groups.
Taking the time to grill together is what makes time stand still. There are far too few of such moments in these fast-moving times.
That is why the best way to have a barbecue is to gather the people we care about and create unforgettable moments together.
How much does a grill cost?
Anyone who wants to buy a grill faces a huge range of products. Price guidance can help.
In fact, prices vary greatly depending on the type of adventure you are planning.
Petromax offers different types of grills for your individual needs.
From a small stackable grilling grate for €24.99 to a sophisticated 3-in-1 cooking station Atago for €239.99, the Petromax grill range has the right grill for every taste.
Which camping grill is the best?
Every camper lacks one thing in particular: space. That is why a grill with a small packing size but a wide range of options is very important when camping. Grills that can be easily combined and have multiple functions are thus ideal.
The Petromax Griddle and Fire Bowl offers the right amount of flexibility during camping. When dismounted it is just 5 cm high, allowing you to stow it anywhere. In addition to the use as a Fire Bowl, you can also use the curved grilling plate to prepare all kinds of meat, fish and vegetable dishes. You can even fry your morning egg on top.
The Petromax Atago is even more versatile and flexible. It serves both as a grill and a perfectly fitting cooking station for the Dutch Oven. Therefore, you can do without an additional camping stove. If you need a warming fire, the Atago can even be converted into a practical Fire Bowl.
Thanks to its low-smoke combustion and bottom insulation, you will not even bother your neighbours. With the Atago you have a device that offers you everything you need for your camping trip. With a flick of the wrist, you can set it up or fold it together into a practical transport height of 14 cm.

How large should a grill be?
The size of the grill depends on how many hungry stomachs you want to feed, but also on how much space you have available.
Whether a grilling grate is 10 cm larger than the other does not matter to your charcoal or fire, and the cleaning time will change noticeably either. Therefore, if space permits, go for a larger grill.
If your space is limited but you would still like a grill suitable for a larger number of people, the Griddle and Fire Bowl is your best choice.
The Griddle and Fire Bowl is available in three sizes. Even the largest one of them (56 cm) can be reduced to a minimum stowage height of 5 cm after grilling and therefore takes up hardly any space.
What do I need to consider when buying a grill?
A grill should be tailored exactly to your needs. Therefore, it is important to know exactly what you need. By considering your own needs, you can narrow down your search, which in turn will give you a better idea of prices in your product segment. Here are a few tips for you to consider when buying a grill:

What is the origin of the grill?
In the original sense, grilling refers to the cooking of meat, fish or other foods directly over a heat source.
Grilling is something that has been done by humans for centuries – even if it has little in common with today's grilling.
Ultimately, every grill is a construction that harks back to the most original of grill histories, and they have been around since man first discovered fire.
