These Grill Baskets Prove Your Grill Is Way More Versatile Than You Think
The 10 types of grill baskets you definitely need this summer.
After months of cooking and baking indoors, it's time to switch things up; and for summer, the perfect change of dinner scenery is taking things to the grill. We've found you can grill just about anything from deviled eggs to fajitas with a grill basket. Last summer, we dubbed grill baskets the "sheet pans of summer" — tons of small food items can get a smoky flavor from the grill without the risk of falling in between the grates thanks to the right basket. It still rings true. We've rounded up all the different types of grill baskets that will make crafting an entire meal on the grill easier than ever.
Kabobs aren't the only way to grill already-chopped vegetables — these mesh baskets are a catch-all for any small items that might otherwise end up at the bottom of your grill. They're easily flippable to achieve grill marks on both sides of your food, plus, they're dishwasher-safe for easy clean up.
Quesadillas might not be the first thing you think to cook on the grill, but with this handy tool, they should be! The shape is designed perfectly for a single-tortilla quesadilla, and the tight grates will make sure none of your precious ingredients fall through. That means you can fill it up with chicken, cheese and veggies galore!
Skip skewers entirely and individually grill kabobs in these baskets, instead. You can easily portion out ingredients and grill with little mess, since these baskets are nonstick. This kit also comes with two skewers, so you can grill kabobs the traditional way, too.
Just like the burger basket, this hot dog grilling basket ensures even cooking of hot dogs and a quick cooking process since you can flip all at once. The grates hold six sausages, and the company claims the gaps in the grid will provide even heat distribution while still keeping the food in place.
This grill basket holds up to three filets at a time, so you can evenly even the flakiest fish without fear of it falling through the grates when it comes time to flip. And, don't worry about being limited by the size of the basket, it has a height adjustment mechanism, so you can fit it to your filets.
