If you like to barbeque every weekend or maybe even every day, you know the best tools can make the experience as pleasant as eating the food you prepared. A good grilling tool set will keep all your accessories stored neatly and close at hand. It will have everything you need when you are basting a steak or flipping a few burger patties.

In this review we will take at the best grilling tool set and what it offers, so you can spend your time with friends and family next to the grill, not endlessly searching for the tongs you swore you had somewhere. Some essentials are a grill brush, tongs and spatula, but as your repertoire grows you might need some more specific tools.

In this review we take a look at the Mr Bar-B-Q grill tool set so you can decide if it offers what you need. We cover the features as well as the good side of this set. But in the name of balance and fair reviewing, we also tell you about the bad side.

Summary

On the one hand, as an entry level grill set the Mr Bar-B-Q Stainless steel tools are a good start if you are on a budget. If you have only recently started to extend your grilling repertoire and want to try a few basting sauces, or test out what your guests think about your kebabs, this will be a good start.

It has a very large assortment of tools, which includes almost everything you could need at the grill. It has a spatula, tongs, barbeque fork, basting brush and even a bottle opener. The wood handles give the set a designer look.

But on the other hand, if you are an experienced cook on the grill and you have very specific expectations when it comes to grilling tools, this set will be a little basic and low quality for you. It is a set where you get what you pay for, but what you pay for isn’t bad. It offers good design, a very large range of tools and some nice little extras, like the bottle opener and corn holders.

Comparison

The Mr Bar-B-Q Stainless steel barbeque set, is a good basic set of grill accessories for a real bargain price. You can perhaps spend a little more money and get a better quality set, but if you are on a tight budget and need to prepare a basted grilled chicken or a really good kebab soon, this set can work for you. The wood looks better than sets that have plastic handles and the case keeps everything neatly ordered.

The wood is also kinder to your hands than most other materials and do not conduct heat so you will not accidently burn yourself.  It has more items than some other sets which offer only a knife, spatula and basting brush for example.

This set has a barbeque fork, tongs and even a bottle opener (which is a big plus so you don’t have to leave your cooking when you need to open your beer.) The tools also have convenient loops so you can hang them on the side of your grill for ease of use.

Many other sets don’t offer this little extra feature, but do have more durable cases. The knife will need a little sharpening and the tongs aren’t the most precise, but will do the job. So in this case you need to weigh quality, price and the type of tools you want against each other, and if budget wins this set will suit you well.

Verdict

The Mr Bar-B-Q Stainless steel barbeque tool set is a good budget buy. The tool set has a very good selection of tools you need to extend your grilling abilities beyond just burgers.

But also has the good standard pieces like tongs and a barbeque fork.  You will be able to prepare corn, kebabs and add basting sauces to your favorite meals. This set comes in a plastic case so you can keep everything neatly squared away.

Of course for the price some quality has been traded in, and the durability of the plastic case, and the quality of the wood handles might leave you wanting something a little more expensive. But if you aren’t too bothered about hand washing your tools and want to keep some cash in your pocket this is a good choice to add to your grill accessories, especially if you consider all the different tools that are included in this set.
