Convenient Charcoal Grilling
Grilling with charcoal requires time, patience, and considerable interaction with your grill. To maximize food flavor and tenderness, the master chef must pay close attention to the temperature and understand when to make adjustments. It is both a science and an art… with most chefs having their own personal tactics to achieve the perfect flame. Yet no charcoal grills offer the ability to so easily adjust, add and remove coals as the Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill. The innovative GrateLifter mechanism is a novel cooking grate lifting system that gives the chef 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 the chef easy, safe access to the coals beneath the grate, allowing you to add coals for extended cooking and adjust the location of the coals to help fine-tune direct heating temperatures. This 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! The new GrateLifter system also makes the process of lighting coals simple and clean. Simply 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 ideal size of a family charcoal grill with the versatility and compact size for the perfect portable grill. Its spacious 240 square inch grilling surface is ideal for cooking for your entire family, with enough space to cook up to 10 burgers, 8 steaks or 8 chicken breasts. The compact footprint also ensures that this grill will not take up too much space on your patio, like those larger, full-sized grills do. Two removable Cuisinart GrateLifter Side Tables (model number CST-152, sold separately) can provide extra shelf space and come 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. In addition, the GrateLifter is ultra-portable and designed to be the perfect size for all your on-the-go grilling. The grill measures only 26 x 18 x 19 inches when in transport mode, weighs less than 30 pounds, and has two integrated side handles making it 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!
