A Great Modern BBQ Lighting System That Works!

    Isn't it always great when you can get a great product at a great price. I regularly search all the liquidation stores in my area and beyond doing just that. Every once in a while I stumble upon an item I've wanted for a while that is so deeply discounted that I cannot resist its siren song any longer. This time it wasn't all that costly! I found a beautifully designed BBQ grill illumination system that looks great AND works great. Perfect for cooking outside the RV.

How Could I Resist!
Cuisinart is a great name. Over the years I have had products manufactured by them that have lasted much longer than their competitors. (I know, that's not always the case, but more often than not.) Just looking at the construction of this beauty shows you why. Utilizing thick plastic and metal this light is a bit heavy. That's a good thing here as it will likely last a long time.

Now on to the functions and actual use. It's BRIGHT! With all three LEDs on, it will definitely light up your grill. It would have been nice to have a way to turn on either one, two or all three LEDs, but there isn't. It attaches to your grill lid handle with a robust clamp. I have a "Jenn-Air" branded grill at home and it held on very well with no slippage on the metal handle.

Sleek!
One of the coolest things about this light is that you can expand the entire unit. That means it can go from a narrow REALLY bright spotlight on the center of your grill to a wider "flood-light" pattern. Besides being useful, it really looks cool when you extend it. Impress your friends....well, only if they are easily impressed or enjoy unique LED lights like I do. The light runs on 3 AAA batteries and should last a long time on a set. The clamping system can be used on other surfaces as well. It so happens to clamp well to my open overhead cabinet doors and works great to really see what's in them. The bottom line? At 75% off (a whopping $7.50) it was a great deal.

One Day I may get around to installing 12 Volt LED lights inside the overhead cabinets, but not just yet. Until then, this works beautifully.  Makes it easier to clean up your grill after dark. Especially if you have a good cleaning tool. It's sleek and modern...just like....ahem...me!

Editor: If you can't find these in a nearby discount store but just have to have one, they're on Amazon (for about $20).
