The Handles and Wire Mesh Make It A Cinch To Grill Small Foods.
Grill toppers like the Culina Stainless Steel Mesh Vegetable Grilling Basket are essential for grilling and smoking small objects such as slices of onion and peppers, and nuts, and I prefer them for small chunks of meat rather than skewers. On skewers, it is hard to keep the meat from spinning around, and getting meats and veggies to cook properly on the same skewer together is almost impossible.
With a basket, when the mushrooms are done, pull them out and leave the meat in. I also prefer mesh types like this one because they let in more smoke and flavor. The handles help too.
