This portable grill is the 'perfect size to take on picnics' — it's down to $30

About the size of a large pizza, this little barbecue can cook enough hot dogs to feed an army.

The trees are budding, bees are buzzing and flowers are blooming — summer is getting the welcome it deserves. That means we've turned off whatever crime drama we've been binging (I know, it's hard) to enjoy the sunshine while it's here. And if cooking outside is how you like to take advantage of spring weather, Amazon has a deal you don't want to pass up. It's offering up this portable grill from Cuisinart for just $29.

This grill measures just 14 inches in diameter and is made with heat-resistant stainless steel for durability.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

It's prime time for enjoying the outdoors — that means this price is about as low as we'll see it go until it starts to get chilly again.

Why do I need this? 🧐

This is about the cutest grill you'll ever come across. It's 15 inches high and 14.5 inches in diameter — that's slightly bigger than a large pizza. Want to know what's even better? It weighs just two pounds! It's compact enough to take with you to the park, camping or out to the balcony if you live in a small space. It's tiny, but don't worry, it can cook all the burgers and brats that a big grill can.

Not only is it cute and compact, but it also features a dual venting system that helps you control cooking temperatures and contain smoke. It also has a firebox coated with sleek enamel that's easy to clean and it has a mess-free ash catcher for safety.

What reviewers say 💬

Outdoor cooks of all sorts rave about this mighty little grill — it has over 9,000 five-star reviews.

Pros 👍

"I bought this for my husband and he uses it every weekend for him and his friends," wrote a doting wife. "It's very good and it is a great quality for the price that I paid for it. He loves it. He always has it in his car to take it wherever he goes and wants to barbecue."

"It's stable on my patio table and a perfect size for grilling small amounts, like 1-4 hamburgers, or meat and veggies for 1-2 people," shared a rave reviewer. "That means it uses a small amount of charcoal compared to a bigger kettle grill. The lid locks so it's very portable, especially since it's not heavy. Overall, it's easy to use for people with limited strength in their hands (like me)."

"This is a real gem for camping if you just want to grill a couple of steaks or burgers and don't want the hassle of firing up the big grill," wrote a five-star fan. "Well built. Made to last."

Cons 👎

Some shoppers had some suggestions for improvement.

"This is a great little grill," reported a shopper. "It is easy to assemble and works great for a couple or small family. The legs do not collapse making portability a challenge. However, the lid does lock with spring locks and you could put utensils or other items in it when not in use. I suspect this little grill will get lots of use. It certainly will come in handy in backyards, campsites, or during power outages."

"I am able to cook like 6 burgers and 6 hotdogs at once on this or 3 steaks which is perfect for us," wrote another shopper. "It was also easy to clean. I wish it came with a cover for outside but I purchased a small one. It also ticks away nicely under the trampoline lol!"
