Features of the Coleman RoadTrip X-cursion LXE gas grill

As the name suggests, this grill has several features that make it a good choice for tailgating, picnicking, and outdoor activities that involve grilling. Consistent performance is maintained with the PerfectFlowTM technology, which ensures satisfactory results even in extreme conditions.

Design

The grill is attractive to look at judging from the outer design which is also very convenient and practical. The dimensions and weight of the grill make it a compact grill that is suitable for travel. The handlebar is on one of the side tables of the grill and when not in use, it folds into a neat form to become portable. This makes the use of the grill to be more hygienic as the handlebar is far away from the ground. The grill is made of plastic and stainless steel, which is astonishing because it is still very rigid and stable.

Controls

Most of the controls located in front of the grill and are easy to use and understand. The grill is propane powered and it works almost like a spark ignition engine that does not need a battery to power up. It is equipped with an InstastartTM push-button ignition for matchless lighting.

Burner

The burner is turned on by pushing the control knob 90 degrees anti-clockwise to open, the push igniter button is then pushed repeatedly until the burner lights. The level of heat desired is dialed-in on two independently adjustable burners. It gives users the opportunity for several meal options with the SwaptopTM interchangeable cooktops. This gives the option of using the grill grates either with a griddle or stove grates. It can last for up to one hour with both burners turned up to the highest while running on a 16.4-oz cylinder. The heat output is rated as 10,000 British thermal units per burner.

Additional Features

Another reason why this grill is very portable is its addition to a side table. The side table is large enough to keep the tools and ingredients close-by while cooking. This grill is ideal for making burgers and for smoking. When you are done with cooking, the DripTrapTM removable water pan would have gathered all the grease that has accumulated while cooking. It also uses NullaFlareTM technology to decrease flare-ups while cooking. This makes it easier for cleaning by just detaching the water pan and removing the grease before washing.

Warranty

This warranty only covers manufacturing defects, and will not cover damage from use including rust. The pros and cons of this grill are summarized below:
