If you're tired of cooking indoors, it's time to switch things up! And, as it gets warmer out, 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. Similarly to a sheet pan in the oven, these grill baskets make it easy to give tons of small food items a smoky flavor from the grill without the risk of falling in between the grates thanks to the right basket. 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.
