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!
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.
Not always easy to remove the potato from the rack, the potato sticks to the rack. Not very easy to clean.

Works like a charm! A minimum rub of Olive oil, press them is sea salt and put them on the grill for an hour over medium heat.
Best baked potatoes ever!
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.Published 22 months ago by Harry B Houchins
