When it comes to our electric knife reviews, the Black & Decker Comfortgrip is the most comfortable one we tested and the least prone to slipping, partially due to the rubberized no-slip strip on top of the handle where your thumb goes.
Loudness: 91 DB, comfortable but still somewhat loud
Bread: easily cut through soft bread and cut through hard breads with only slight pressure
Squash: barely able to slice the squash even with lots of pressure
Hard cheese: no problem
Poultry & meat: did a nice job slicing everything
Bones: took a fair amount of pressure to cut through the turkey bones
Handle: comfortable to hold with a slightly squarish handle that is best for large hands; it did get quite warm with prolonged use
Features: lock button, easy blade release, separate set of “bread” blades, wooden holder (not really necessary but a nice bonus), limited three-year warranty
Since their earliest days as a small Baltimore machine shop, BLACK+DECKER has been a manufacturer of a variety small appliances, power tools and lawn care machines.

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.
The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
The Slow ‘N’ Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.
