We love to barbecue year-round. And, one of the things we love to barbecue most is vegetables. Grilled veggies have no competition in the Xeno household. A couple of years ago my wife returned from a Pampered Chef Party with a **Pampered Chef Grill Basket**. Although we had a stainless steel vegetable griller, her choice was excellent. The Pampered Chef Grill Basket at 11" x 8.5" x 2" and constructed with stainless steel wire has become one of our favorite grilling tools. It's large enough to hold a family sized portion of vegetables, but compact enough to allow me to lower the lid of our Char-Broil gas grill. The wire construction of the basket allows the heat to evenly reach the vegetables and grill the veggies in a reasonable amount of time. The wire handles allow me to toss the veggies easily while they grill. However, it's really important to remember to be wearing heat-proof gloves or mitts while using the basket. When grilling is done, the basket is extremely easy to clean with nothing more than a good warm soapy water soak. Over time, the wire basket tends to discolor (rainbow), but it becomes no less functional. Initially, I used Barkeeper's Friend scouring powder on it to keep it shiny and bright, but I don't worry about its brightness anymore. I keep maintenance to a minimum. If you're looking for and excellent grilling basket, look no further. I highly recommend the Pampered Chef Grill Basket.
