FIREDISC Quick Facts

With its 24 inches height I think it is very easy to use for many people. This limited height also makes it perfect for tailgating and to use on a boat.

This versatile cooker can be used for all kinds of cooking. The shape of it is comparable to a shallow wok.

This makes it more of a griddle and less of a grill but the difference is that the FIREDISC can hold up to 5 gallons of food. Try doing that on a grill.

  • Versatile in use
  • Made of Carbon steel
  • 3 heating zones
  • Foldable
  • Price
  • Heavy

FIREDISC Cooker Review – My Opinion

I have used these kind of cookers and they are very easy to use and can cook all types of food.

They are also known under names as Skotel, braai, disk cooker and several other names.

Looking at the FIREDISC I noticed how easy it is to set it up and break it down after use.

I like the fact that you can hook it up to a larger propane tank. You will however, need a propane tank hose for that.

The different components makes it very easy to store even if you have limited space.

The fact that it weighs almost 60 pounds when put together might seem high.

However, the separate parts are not heavy so putting it together is easy to do and only takes a few minutes.

Cooking on it can be start as soon as it heats up. The middle of it will start to heat up first and it will not take long at all to heat up.

The center will be hotter than the outer rings and this makes it possible to cook different types of food at the same time.

You can use the middle to fry you steak, hamburger or any other type of meat and the outer ring to cook you veggies or potatoes.

It will take a little time to get used to but after you get the hang of it you can cook up any meal. It just takes a little planning.

The price of around $374 might be a little steep for many people and if you are looking for a more budget model I suggest you read my opinion of the King Cooker.
