Cuisinart CCG-100 User Reviews:
The most negative comment you can find about the Cuisinart CCG-100 is that the initial assembly can be confusing as the instructions and images don’t match what you need to do to get it together. That being said, construction is still easily manageable though, and with some common sense you should be able to put it together quite quickly.
Once you get past the assembly though you’ll have nothing but a quality portable charcoal grill that’s easily stored, works great, and will last you a long time. Here is what a user has to say about the Cuisinart CCG-100:
“In 34 years of owning charcoal grills, this is THE BEST DESIGNED GRILL I have ever owned. With an easy set-up, precision air flow, exact temperature readings, grill lift system, coal tray, large ash bin, sturdy portability, removable lid, easiest non scouring clean up and a 3 year warranty.” – Jim L., Portland
A lot of users have also commented about the great flavour that comes from using this charcoal grill, and just at how easy it is to use, clean and move around.
Overall the Cuisinart CCG-100 GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill easily compares to other high quality grills, and even though the price point is a bit higher than a Weber Go-Anywhere, the easy lift system and the large ash bin are hard to pass up. A good place to compare the CCG-100 to other grills is on Amazon: Cuisinart CCG-100.
