Depending on your usage, if you are going to deal with the large chunk of meats, it is important that your spatula and other equipment should have the wider surface which makes it easy to flip. It is important that the tools you are using or going to use should have proper grip and non-slippery handles to extend its safety.
If you are questing for the low pricing, avoid falling prey to the low-quality tools which look sturdy but will not last more than a season. Especially if you are going to use your grill for your parties and outdoor, aesthetics and appearance of your tools are of utmost relevance.

It’s considered one of the most reliable names in the kitchen game and this Cuisinart CGS-134 Grilling Tool Set proves why. Each of the grilling tools has elongated 12-inch stainless steel handles that are finished off with ergonomic, heat-resistant rubberized grips in bright red.
With its extra-long, 16-inch handle that’s designed to keep your hands away from the hottest areas of the grill, the Ox spatula immediately stands out from the rest. The spatula is entirely made up of rust-resistant stainless steel that’s finished off with a rubber non-slip handle that provides a comfortable and heat-resistant grip.
Just throw it in the dishwasher on a regular cycle and use the included hanging hook to store the spatula on the grill until next time. These tongs feature a 16-inch handle that opens up into a scalloped edge clamp that can easily flip hot dogs, while also providing a strong enough grip for heavier duty items, like a T-bone steak.
The stainless steel handle is finished off with oak hardwood that not only adds to the overall design, it also protects your hands as things start to heat up. While that may be the part you look forward to the least, the Kong 360 Clean Grill Brush helps get the job done quickly and with minimal effort.
Unlike wood, which can break down with exposure to water over time, the weather-resistant handle is made of plastic and designed to be easier to grip and 275 percent tougher. As the name points out, this thermometer is equipped with two independent probes that allow you to monitor the temperature of different pieces of meat simultaneously.
And if you’re grilling outdoors at night, the backlit LCD screen allows you to see temperature readings even in the dark. The stainless steel design provides perfect heat distribution and retention when grilling vegetables or smaller items, like shrimp, scallops, or diced meat, while the 1/8-inch slits allow juices to flow easily out of the pan.
Even when the pan is full, the wide handles help ensure a secure grip so you can transfer the cooked food to your serving platter without it slipping from your hands. Keep in mind that at 17.4 × 11.81 × 1.46 inches in size, this pan takes up a decent amount of space on the grill.
Named the best BBQ tool by the National BBQ Association in 2013, the Original Bear Paws Shredder Claws are something that every pit master needs in his or her arsenal. Lindsay Boyer's is a certified holistic nutritionist with extensive nutrition knowledge and cooking experience.
Over the course of four days, we tested these tools while cooking more than 100 burgers, 20 chickens, and 10 pounds of vegetables on nine different grills. We discussed the usability, quality, durability, and price of every tool, and we are confident that our picks will be top performers throughout grilling season.
We think the smart money is on buying only what you need, choosing tools of top quality, instead of paying for low-quality extras that inevitably turn into clutter. The Mercer Hell’s Handle Large Fish Turner (foreground) is big enough to tackle most grilling tasks.
The stainless steel blade on the Hell’s Handle has a fine edge, a stable feel with the right amount of give, and a tapered shape that seamlessly slid under our burger patties without resistance. Though it’s very flexible, the Hell’s Handle is still strong enough to help transfer whole chickens from grill to cutting board.
The tapered shape of the spatula allowed us to work successfully on a full grill, easily slipping in between burgers to get a clean flip. If you prefer a thinner, lightweight handle, we recommend getting the Victorinox Chef's Slotted Jumbo Fish Turner.
The wooden handle isn’t dishwasher safe either, and doesn’t promise the same heat resistance as that of the Mercer. For example, the Weber Style 6705 Stainless Steel Turner and our former top pick, the Ox Good Grips 16 Grilling Turner With Serrated Edge, offered no flexibility and had long, awkwardly angled handles that made flipping burger patties more challenging compared with our new top pick.
With its three rows of thick-gauge wire bristles, the Best Grill Brush covers a lot of surface area with each stroke, and its sturdy construction refused to bend during tough scraping tasks. Unlike the coiled metal pads on some other brushes, the Best ’s steel bristles stayed intact and upright with no signs of breakage or shedding.
Photo: Michael Session’d be remiss if we failed to mention that there’s some fear surrounding wire grill brushes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published reports on nonfatal injuries due to ingestion of wires from grill brushes.
Photo: Michael Session you’re hellbent on “no wire brushes,” The Great Scrape's Woody Shovel is our favorite wire-free grate-cleaning option. This hardwood paddle has a straight tapered edge that takes on the pattern of the grates by branding them in while the grill is hot.
If you want to save a few dollars and don’t mind losing the enhanced handle, the Woody Paddle is a good option and offers the same cleaning functionality. We haven’t seen any reviews of diminished scraping abilities with use, so we’ll be long-term testing the Woody Shovel this summer to see how it holds up to frequent use.
The Grillrooms is also an ideal tool for kicking hot charcoal around the firebox, a job usually reserved for tongs that eventually touch the food. The thick-gauge steel of the Bayou Classic Grill Scraper was heavy and awkward for us to hold, and the hook wasn’t as defined as the Grillrooms’s, so it didn’t clean our grates as well.
Sheet pans don’t necessarily come to mind when people talk about cooking outdoors, but you do need a platform for transferring food to and from the grill. The design sports a tightly rolled lip and a generous 1-inch rim that’s comfortable and easy to hold with one hand, important when you’re working fast over the grill.
Although chimney starters can range in price from $10 to $60, this Weber model consistently hovers around the $15 mark, and you can find it at most major retailers, including Amazon, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, and Walmart. This design raised a lot of safety concerns for us, filling our heads with visions of drillers unwittingly releasing a load of glowing coals on the ground or on their feet.
Other comparably priced chimneys, including models from Char-Broil, Charcoal Companion, Grille, and Lodge, lacked a second helper handle. We recommend the Thermoforms Thereupon for home cooks who want a fast, accurate, and affordably priced instant-read thermometer.
To ensure you’re consuming meat and poultry cooked to safe internal temperatures, we recommend adding the Thermoforms Thereupon, our pick for the best instant-read thermometer, to your grilling arsenal. The easy-to-read display is backlit with digits that automatically rotate in four directions depending on the thermometer’s orientation, so it’s convenient to read at almost any angle.
Photo: Michael HessionWhether you’re grilling chicken pieces or multiple racks of ribs, a basting brush that can generously apply barbecue sauce without deteriorating over high heat is a necessary tool for the job. The full bristle set on the Ox brush was neither too stiff nor too wobbly, with just the right amount of flexibility to create a smooth, even layer of barbecue sauce over the surface of the meat.
Also, the slight bend at the base of the large Ox handle provided a convenient angle for scooping generous amounts of sauce and easy basting. In our tests, the bristles of the Le Crest brush held a good amount of barbecue sauce and created an even coating over the meat.
If you care about the aesthetics of your grill tools, we think the Le Crest brush is nicer looking than the Ox, due to its wooden handle and silicone bristles, which come in a variety of colors (six in all). The grape tomatoes, diced zucchini, and eggplant we cooked in the Grillaholics basket had better color and developed more flavor than the vegetables we tried with the competition.
The larger perforations on this basket offer better heat and air circulation and allow the vegetables to have more contact with the grill grate. Over time, we think the stainless steel Grillaholics basket will stand up to the rigors of high-heat grilling better than the nonstick Williams-Sonoma pan we tested.
Additionally, we liked the curved handles on the Grillaholics basket, which made it easier for us to move the pan around the grill using tongs. If our main pick isn’t available, we also recommend the comparably priced Cave Tools Vegetable Grill Basket.
This model is nearly identical to our top pick, and it performed similarly in our tests, but since its perforations are narrower, it doesn’t offer quite as much contact with the grill grate. The experts we spoke with recommended an over a probe thermometer: Instant-read models are faster, and they generally last longer since they have no exposed cables that could deteriorate in the heat.
But if you prefer a probe thermometer, which can remain in the meat so you can monitor the temperature while it cooks without having to open the grill lid, we recommend the Thermoforms Dot. Barbecue experts agree that the best way to protect hands from ambient heat while grilling is to use a set of suede or split-leather welding gloves.
We still think the split leather US Forge 400 Welding Gloves offer the best combination of heat resistance, dexterity, and price. These gloves offer better heat protection than Nomex or silicone, and better dexterity than standard kitchen oven mitts.
After years of using the US Forge gloves with high heat and sooty grill parts, we feel comfortable in saying that if you use them within their capacity, they will keep you safe. Don’t think that you can plunge your hands into a glowing coal bed or hold scorching-hot metal without feeling heat.
In addition to gloves, we suggest using or cheap terry bar mops for a secure grip and better heat barrier. Grilling gloves protect your hands from ambient heat while you’re working in the firebox, cooking on the grates, and dumping hot coals from a chimney starter.
A thick top-grain leather exterior, a soft cotton interior, and durable lock-stitching on the US Forge gloves will help them stand up to years of abuse. The cotton liner provides some additional heat protection, guards your hands against the gloves’ stitching, and helps to wick away sweat.
“I think silicone is guaranteed up to 500 or 550 degrees Fahrenheit,” said Steven Rachel, author and founder of Barbecue University. Steaks we cooked on GrillGrates were seared only where the meat made contact with the grate, leaving the rest of the surface pale, and asparagus spears barely showed any grill marks at all.
While the GrillGrates did manage to eliminate any chance of a flare-up, we’d rather have more contact with the high ambient heat from the firebox to get the browned crust and crispy, rendered fat cap we look for in a grilled steak, or the nicely charred surface that makes for great grilled veggies. The Slow ’N Sear Plus has a reservoir that holds up to a quart of water, creating a humid environment that helps keep the meat moist.

This half-moon charcoal basket, which has an integral reservoir that holds 1 quart of water, fits flush against the side of the grill, so it’s easily accessible from the hinged cooking grate.
We charred tomatoes and onions directly over freshly lit, red-hot coals, and put a foil pack of garlic and oil off to the side in the indirect zone. After charring, we moved the vegetables to a metal sizzle plate in the indirect zone to cook with the grill covered for 20 minutes.
