Offering big grilling performance in a portable package, the Cuisinart CGG-180T Petit Gourmet portable tabletop gas grill is an ideal choice for families who like to grill on the go. The Petit Gourmet grill--which includes a folding table base--offers a 145-square-inch grilling area, enough space to accommodate from four to six people at a time. At the same time, the grill saves space by eliminating extra grilling spots and burners that waste propane and rarely get used. With the Petit Gourmet grill, you can grill up a small feast everywhere you go, from the campsite to the beach to a pre-game tailgater. The grill is also perfect for small patios, unlike large gas grills that take up half the patio by themselves.

Big Grilling Performance
The Petit Gourmet doesn't compromise when it comes to keeping you well fed. Despite the compact size, the grilling surface is large enough to grill eight burgers, eight steaks, six to 10 chicken breasts, or up to 4 pounds of fish. The grill's superior heating performance stems from the powerful 5,500 BTU stainless-steel burner and porcelain-enameled grill grate, which combine to heat the grill quickly and evenly to more than 500 degrees F. At the same time, the grill's compact size keeps propane use to a minimum: a single 16-ounce propane canister will last for several hours, or you can connect it to a 20-pound propane tank for longer-lasting, permanent grilling (requires Cuisinart 4-foot LP adapter hose, sold separately). And when grilling is complete, the grate cleans up easily outdoors or in your kitchen sink.
Portability Made Easy
Built for convenience and portability, the Petit Gourmet includes a handy foldaway leg system integrated into the base of the grill. When you're on the move, the tubular aluminum legs and stabilizing feet stay tucked away on the grill bottom. Once you arrive, however, the legs lock cleanly and securely into place in a matter of seconds, giving you a stable, reliable stand for grilling on almost any terrain. Just find a secure surface, unfold the legs, and hit the electric lighter. No other portable grill goes from your car to cooking in such a short time. As an alternative, Cuisinart sells a CSGS-100 grill stand that positions your grill at an ideal grilling height (sold separately).
The Petit Gourmet also features a secure lid lock on the front of the grill that keeps the lid closed when the grill is moved from place to place, along with a pronounced carrying handle that lets you tote the 13-pound grill briefcase-style. To make transport even easier, grillers can opt to purchase the CGC-18 storage bag, which doubles as a grill cover (sold separately).
