Season generously with salt and pepper and place rack on the grill. Metal conducts heat inside spuds for faster cooking.

Customer Reviews

I wouldn't have had to spend time with the Brillo pad this morning getting the welded-on spray off.
Annie Hogsett
I have used this potato holder for over a year and love the quality of the steel and the functionality of securing the potato to the rack.
B Thornton
After a few tries I found the only redeeming quality is that the potato skin is crispier than normal foil wrapped potatoes.

While the principle of the product is rather simple (a flat piece of metal with spikes sticking up), it is very useful. The instructions are very easy - coat with a light coating of oil, and drop the potatoes on the metal spikes. Stick on BBQ and cook. Allegedly cooks faster than potatoes would in an oven.

Here are my reflections after my first time using this contraption:

1) I started cooking potatoes at the same time as the steak and vegetables. By the time my steak and asparagus were cooked, the potatoes needed another 10 minutes or so. In hindsight, I should have started the potatoes while the grill was heating up; and they would have been done on time

2) I varied from the original instructions - wrapping two of the four potatoes in aluminum foil before placing them on the spikes. They cooked faster, though had less of a roasted taste (that I found very desirable!)

3) On one of the four spikes I placed a sweet potato - which tasted fantastic after coming off the grill! It needed no foil, and cooked a little faster than the exposed (foil-free) potatoes.

In summary, you should probably start cooking the potatoes while the grill is heating up. You can wrap them in foil to make the job faster; though it will cut back on the nice roasted flavor that you otherwise get.

I gave it 4 stars because it isn't 100% non-stick, even with a coat of oil. When I pull potatoes off the rack, they tend to stick to the spike and tear that part of the potato open. Still taste great, though!

I received one of these grills as a Christmas gift in 2011 and I used it for the first time last night. The main reason I waited so long is that apparently no matter whom you buy this from -- and it's sold under a lot of different brands -- nobody who's marketing it includes instructions on how to use it. The packaging has the features and how dandy it is, but nothing on temperature, how to prepare the potatoes, where to put it on the grill, how long to cook cook it. Nada.

Reviews here have been the only source of decent info. So I'm here to say that it works great on my gas grill. I heated the grill to medium indirect (350 or so; lighting only the two front burners) rubbed the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkled them with a little kosher salt. I sprayed the thing with olive oil non-stick (more about this in a minute), stuck on the two potatoes (russet bakers) I was roasting and put it over the burner at the back that wasn't lit. Closed the lid. 30 min. wasn't enough but 45 seemed good. I cranked the grill up to indirect high (450-500) and grilled a flank steak for slightly-not-long-enough (my bad, not complaining) about 7 minutes with the potatoes still in place. The potatoes were perfectly done.

Now here's the duh part: I should have realized that I didn't need to spray the un-potatoed end of the rack. It would have been nice if someone had mentioned this in spite of the obviousness. I wouldn't have had to spend time with the Brillo pad this morning getting the welded-on spray off. Next time.

My take is that this product is better than its packaging and lousy (mostly none) customer support would suggest. I like it quite a bit. I'll use it again. I took a star off for how unhelpful and stupid the presentation was.

Bought this on a whim to add to the other grill accessories in the garage. Didn't really cook the potatoes quicker than before and was tough to clean. It does keep the spuds in place (as long as there aren't more than 4) where you can continue to brush them with melted butter, mmmmmmmm. Be sure to use non-stick spray (found that out the hard way). Save your money - wrap them in foil and throw them on.

There's junk and then there's junk! This thing is a candidate for the Ripoff hall of fame. Potatoes cook unevenly and the skins are burned black due to considerable amount of time needed to make the food halfway edible. Of course, there's no satisfaction guarantee offered to consumers. I'm sure the folks who brought this lousy product to market had to have known it was an impractical and useless product but they just wanted to make a buck.

I pimped out my hubbies man grill for his birthday. We used this first time yesterday. The potatoes were wonderful. When I read the package info, I'm thinking now how would "barbecuing" a tator be different than baking or even oven roasted. Trust me, they are. They are crispy outside and fluffy in the middle.

Makes delicious baked potatoes. It only reduces the cooking time by about 10 minutes (still about 30-40 cooking time).
Not always easy to remove the potato from the rack, the potato sticks to the rack. Not very easy to clean.

Frankly, it didn't do the job as well as I expected. I didn't think the blades heated the interior of the potatoes as well as advertised and they finished unevenly.
