Grill gadgets that make life easier

(WTVM) -

We only have a little over a month before summer is over, so if you haven't cooked out on the grill yet, time is ticking!

A few grill gadgets could help make your life easier.

Consumer Reports tested three gadgets that aim to make grilling even better.

First up is GrillGrates.

They are interlocking panels that sit on top of your grill and promise to help food cook more evenly and keep it juicy, while reducing flare ups.

Consumer Reports' lab found the GrillGrates did improve evenness with one of the two grills it tested.

Although the GrillGrates didn't totally eliminate flare-ups, they did deliver some nice grill marks.

"If your grill is uneven heating and you're maybe even contemplating replacing your grill, this would be a less expensive option to try and they do offer a money back guarantee," said Tara Casaregola who works for Consumer Reports.

Next up is the $150 Bakerstone Pizza oven box for using your grill to make woodfired-style pizza.

After a 30-minute warm up, it turned out delicious pizzas every four minutes.

Finally, $130 Grillbot, which is a grill cleaning robot that promises to scrub your grill grates automatically.

Consumer Reports let the robot loose on a grill caked with cooked chicken.

It's noisy, but after 20 minutes the Grillbot tidied up some of the mess.

It took a grill brush to clean up the pieces of burnt chicken stuck in between the grates.
