Holland Companion Portable Gas Grill Review
Holland went out of business in 2019. All models are discontinued.
Like all Holland cookers their Companion Portable Gas Grill has no open flame. A drip pan beneath the stainless steel expanded metal cooking grate completely covers the small burner, insuring you will have zero flare ups. The underpowered burner with Low/Medium/High settings that range from 2600 BTU to 4900 BTU input also insures you will have no searing ability. Holland Gas Grills are outdoor BBQ ovens that will bake your chicken, fish and sausage with no fear (or hope?) of charring. Be sure to bring a bag of chips because cook times are longer with Holland. At 212 square inches it has a fairly large cook surface for a portable.
The housing is stainless steel with a stay cool coil handle and lid latch for easy transport. It uses one pound propane cylinders. An optional 20 lb. LP tank adaptor and carrying case are available.
