Guide Review - Outdoor Chef Roma 570MX2
This gas grill is no longer available in the United States. Hopefully, it will return in the near future.
European Outdoor Chef has been making gas powered kettle grills for many years now and they have been very successful there. During this time, they have been trying to expand their market and this grill is the first to be distributed in the United States. The years of experience and popularity in Europe have allowed them to perfect the design and make a series of very good gas grills.
This full sized gas grill is a dual burner unit with Outdoor Chef's flip funnel system. What this means is that there is a cone shaped baffle inside the grill that can be flipped over. In the normal position, the funnel distributes the heat from the burners evenly through the grill. In the "volcano" position the heat is focused to the center of the grill giving you an intense searing zone. The two burner design lets you hit temperatures from 250 degrees F. to 660 degrees F.
Being a European grill this unit is specifically designed to not only grill up to be the perfect cooker for Paella and Risotto and also for baking bread. With various optional accessories, you can pretty much cook anything you want on this grill.
To provide the kind of versatility that this grill can it is unlike the standard black box gas grills of America. Built like a typical kettle charcoal grill this gas cooker is lightweight but durable construction all for a price under $500 USD.
