Review of the COBB Portable BBQ by Gadgets



Born in the southern tip of Africa over 20 years ago, the multi-award-winning COBB was created as a safer, more economical way for rural South Africans to cook. The aim was to minimise fire risks.

The first fuel for the COBB was a dried-out corncob, which is how the versatile cooker coined its name. From these humble roots, it has become a global superstar. Time and trends have evolved a multitude of outdoor cooking methods, and at the head of that innovation curve is the COBB Cooker. A highlight in its short life was being named one of the best inventions of the year by Time magazine in 2001.

The COBB and its range of brilliant accessories can cook anything, anywhere – be it a simple burger or a more substantial dish. Its unique design allows fat and grease to drain away from the food that is cooking and into the moat for healthier cooking. As the fat does not land on the coals, the COBB cooking system is virtually smokeless and can be used in small, well ventilated areas, such as balconies or boats, without causing a smoky environment.

Added to this, the COBB can be easily dismantled and placed into a dishwasher for cleaning convenience. This highly portable grill weighs only 4kg (8.8 lbs), has a height of 30cm (12 inches) and a diameter of 30cm (12 inches).

While searing hot on the inside, the base remains cool to touch on the outside, and can be picked up and moved around while cooking. The COBB is very fuel efficient and an environmentally greener option as it uses only 8–10 briquettes, one CobbleStone or 300g charcoal for up to two hours of cooking.

It will start you on a lifelong journey – a journey of delicious meals, of tasty experiences and culinary adventures.
