On better grills, I provide in-depth reviews of grills and accessories

Eddie van Aken

Although I do not claim to be an expert in any way, I have been the owner of and ran my own restaurant for many years.

Before that, I worked as a grill cook and buffet cook in a few restaurants including some of the big chain ones.

Through my experience, I am used to dealing with and using all types of quality kitchen equipment, and I use my experience in this field to give my personal and professional opinion about the features in the grill reviews I do. Or any other item I review.

This all started in June 2014 when I was looking for a new grill.
I love to grill and BBQ all types of meat and even vegetables, but because of my own full-service restaurant, I never did too much at home with the grill. However, now I was looking for a grill I decided that I also was going to use it as much as possible.

This ended up by cooking outdoor about every time I had a chance and testing as many methods and grill recipes as possible.

I decided to share my experiences on a website and that was the start of Better Grills.

Although I try to be as thorough as I can in my reviews and tips I still advise you to do your own research. 

How I do our research for my grill reviews?

I spend a lot of time doing all the research and visit consumer websites like amazon, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walmart, and many more, where I read everything that people wrote about the product.

I visit the manufacturer websites to read all about the grills I am reviewing and sign up for their newsletter to stay informed and updated.

Spending a lot of time on product-related forums to find more real customer experiences to include in the grill reviews is very helpful.

Asking other peoples about their experience with the product I review gives me some top information I can use.

One thing I do if I am not able to find the answer is to contact the manufacturer by email or phone to find the right answers.
Some companies nowadays offer a chat function on their websites and I make use of this option a lot to save time and get the best possible answers.

For every grill review I do, I try to find it at a local store or anywhere else to have a look at it and see what I can find out about it.

This all ends up in a review where I include all my findings, but will not just contain pros, but also cons and my final recommendation.

I live in Kentucky and enjoy living here.

Thank you for taking the time to read this page.

Comments and additions to reviews are more than welcome and will be added to our review if I think they add value to the particular review.
