best flat top grill reviews

I have used a flat-top grill at a friend’s house but have not decided if I like to have one myself.

“That is a reason for me to do some flat top grill reviews to help you and myself out.”

Flat top grills can be divided into two main categories. Outdoor and indoor.
Indoor is most of the time electric and the outdoors propane gas powered.

I read in the grill reviews I did that many people started using them as an addition to their outdoor grills to have more options for cooking food.

In the restaurants I worked they always had large flat-top grills and that is how I learned to use them the right way.

In the future, I will add more brands but for now, I will have a look at what I think are the 3 best flat-top grill brands that I would consider buying.

Blackstone flat top grills

When I say that the Blackstone griddle for the outdoors is the best seller. I can back that up with facts because they have the highest number of buyers and some great ratings.

They have a selection of indoor and outdoor flat-top grills to meet everyone’s needs. For now, we look at their best-selling outdoor models.

Blackstone griddle 28

With a surface of 470 inches, this is a nice flat-top grill for home and camping.
Two burners and 30.000 BTU create two heating zones to be used for hot and cooler like a professional restaurant grill.

This is also the one I mentioned before that I used at a friend’s house.

Some people call this the Blackstone 28-inch outdoor flat top gas grill griddle station but that is a mouth full don’t you think?

The electric ignition and built-in grease trap make using and cleaning very easy.

The 2 wheels make moving it very easy and I like the fact that you can hang the propane tank on the side on a hook.

Blackstone griddle 36

There is a newer version for this Blackstone 36-inch outdoor flat top gas grill but it is just some new shelves as far as I can figure.
The difference with the 28-inch version is of course a larger grill area of 720 square inches and the four burners.

This will give you four heat zones instead of the two on the 28″ version.
With prices, I found that they are about 80 dollars higher compared to the 28″ I would personally go for the bigger one if I were in the race for a flat grill.

Royal Gourmet flat grill

Although Royal Gourmet is maybe not one of the most known brands in flat grills (I had not heard of it too much), I was surprised by the nice customer ratings I found.

There are two versions available a two-burner version and a 4 burner.
Both Royal Gourmet flat grills come with:

  • stainless steel burners
  • 4 caster wheels
  • Side tables
  • Grease collector

Royal Gourmet 2 burner

The two burners give you the option to work with two heat zones.
Each burner is 13.000 BTU and is made of stainless steel.

The surface is 22.8 x 19.7 inches and this totals 449 square inches.
The two side tables give you a lot of room to work with.

Royal Gourmet 4 burner

This 33.5 inches wide flat top grill comes with 4 burners to give you more options than the 2-burner version.

All burners are stainless steel and also 13.000 BTU. The total cooking space is 660 square inches.

The folding table is basically the same as the smaller 2 burners.

Camp Chef flat top grill

I know this brand from the Camp Chef pellet grills I reviewed and I like the quality of the brand.
It seems to be a trend to have a two-burner and 4, burner model. The Camp Chef is no exception but also has a three-burner available that has a separate burner next to it. You can find it here

For now, I focus on the two and four-burner versions like the other two brands.

Camp Chef 2 burner griddle

The two-burner can not be compared to the other brands.
This is a foldable and portable flat grill with a total weight of almost 49 pounds.
it basically is a grill and with the optional reversible grill and griddle plates, you can turn it into a small flat top grill.

I would almost like to call this a camp stove instead of a flat grill, but since it can be used that way I added it to this flat grill review page.

Camp Chef  flat top grill 600 – 4 burner griddle

camp chef 4 burner griddle
This 20.5 x 31-inch large FTG600 grill comes with many features.
The grill surface had grates that could be changed from griddle to grill.

I just could not figure out why the griddle surface is 604 square inches and the grill surface is only 501 square inches.

Four 12.000 BTU burners give you a lot of room to play with.

The side tables can be folded down for storage and when you have to move it with the two wheels.

Also available as a Camp Chef portable flat top grill.

Flat top grill reviews – My Opinion and Experienc.

To answer the question of what the best flat top grill is a question that is hard to answer as to answer what is the best car.

It all depends on your type of cooking.

If you like a lot of options a four-burner with a surface that can be changed out for a regular grill like the four-burner Camp Chef is a great choice.

If you need a smaller flat grill for camping or RV’ing all the two burners in this post are fine.

You can also have a look at the Rec Tec Matador for a smaller version portable flat top grill with two zones.

As soon as I make my final choice for the flat top grill I want I will update that here!

Oil For Flat Top Grills

Something that you should pay a lot of attention to is the oil you use on your flat top grill.

It is very important to use the best oil for flat top grills to make sure that your food does not burn or take on a strange taste that will ruin it.
