How We Test and Rate the Products

At Grill Ignite, we take our product testing and rating seriously. We put each product through its paces so that you can make an informed decision before making your purchase. But how do we test and rate products? Let’s take a closer look.

A Little Bit About Us

It’s a little-known fact that not all grilling accessories are created equal. We at Grill Ignite believe in giving you the best of the best when it comes to taste and enjoyment – we review grilling accessories from top brands and even those who are new in the market but have efficient products. Keep reading to know more about how we accomplish this.

The Review Process: How We Shortlist the Products

The process of shortlisting grills and related accessories is a challenging task. There are so many choices, brands, styles, prices that it can be overwhelming to find the right one.

But, we’ve done the hard work for you!

Our experts take the time to research the best suppliers, find any potential issues with quality or price and then hand-pick what we think are the highest quality items available at that time. They will help guide your purchase as you decide on which grilling accessories are right for you!

Here’s a sneak peek of the process the products have to go through in order to get a spot in our lists of best ones.

  • Tried and Tested: We get the products, we try them on, we test them in suitable environments, and we share the results with you. Sometimes, we get the products for free from the sellers or brands, and sometimes we purchase them to check if they stand true to their claims.
  • Window Shopping: We also go to stores and check out the finish and quality of the accessories to observe and compare what they claim to deliver without actually buying them.
  • Third-Party Reviews: Sometimes, the brand owners share the products with third-party reviewers who can test the products in much better environments, like using BBQ grill light at night time, or trying waterproof grill covers on rainy days. This simply helps us to test products to their limits.
  • Online Digging: Whenever we are unable to get the products in our hands, we dig through the internet, from the brand websites to e-commerce stores and even online reviewing platforms, to fetch genuine reviews from real people to bring you the most honest feedback of the products.

Moreover, all general information is thoroughly sourced from credible websites.
