It looks like a clutch bag. You know, the kind that can hold plenty of small items while fitting snugly in hand while you’re out and about. Truth be told, it can probably function as one. Make no mistake, though, the Charcoal Companion Non-Stick Mesh Grilling Bag is designed to make your life easier when grilling smaller food items.
A heat-resistant mesh bag, you can use it to hold small food items like shrimps, vegetables, and smaller slices of meat for grilling, ensuring they can cook properly with no chance of falling through the grates and into the fire. No need to skewer small food items or wrap delicate food in foil like you normally do – just place them inside the bag, snap it shut, and you’re ready to grill.
The Charcoal Companion Non-Stick Mesh Grilling Bag is made from PTFE mesh (a heat-resistant type of plastic), allowing it to withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit, while a nonstick coating ensures easy removal of even the most delicate fish after grilling. Plus, being bundled in a single bag should make it incredibly easy to turn all the food over, allowing you to turn all the food with just a single flip. Whether you’re barbecuing strips of bacon, chicken wings, or sliced eggplants, this thing should make for an ideal place to slot them all in before placing the grub over the heat.
Tiny holes on the mesh material make it impossible for nothing but seeds and the smallest morsels to fall through, all while allowing smoke from the flames to flow right into the food, so your charcoal can impart a smoky flavor onto whatever it is you’re cooking. A flap on the top comes with snap button closures, ensuring all the food is tightly locked up inside, with no risk of any item falling out.
Because all the food is collected inside the Charcoal Companion Non-Stick Mesh Grilling Bag, there’s a lot less mess that gets caked on the grates, ensuring minimal scraping during clean up after your backyard cookout is over. It’s dishwasher-safe, too, so you can simply throw it in with the rest of the dishes for cleaning. The fact that it’s reusable also makes it more economical than other options like wooden skewers and aluminum foil, since you don’t have to keep buying new ones every time there’s a barbecue at home.
It comes in two sizes: small and medium, with the former measuring 5.5 x 9.4 x 0.4 inches and the latter measuring 10.6 x 8.7 x 0.4 inches, so you can choose which one will accommodate the amount of food you’re cooking. Granted, the size makes it less than ideal for cooking a whole fish (heck, maybe even half of a modest-sized fish), but you should be able to cook most food items on the bag provided you slice them up into thinner chunks. The size should also allow it to fit in most drawers, with its flat profile allowing it to fit under most trays and compartments.
