Grilling outside is one of the best things about summer, but even in summer when days are longer you might want to have a cook out until late at night, long after the sun has set. But when you grill you need to see clearly what you are doing, and more importantly you need to know if your food is cooked. You don’t want to serve your guests with over or under cooked food only because you couldn’t see what you were doing. It doesn’t matter how high-end your grill is if you don’t see it!

Summary

This Zeust #1barbeque grill light easily attaches to the handle of most grills. It uses 3 AA batteries, so you won’t have any trouble finding replacements. It has a good wide light so you will be able to clearly see what you are cooking and when it is ready. It is easy to install and use and you can use it for other applications as well. If you need bright light and both hand free, say riding your bike in low light, this guy will do the job there as well. It is a very versatile light, with good illumination and a sturdy design.

On the negative side, the touch sensitive switch can turn on without you realizing and may drain the batteries very quickly. A light with a toggle or manual switch would work better in outdoor settings. The light is not completely waterproof. It will stand up to light drizzle but will not stay dry in a heavy thunderstorm and will leak if it is exposed to torrential rain. Another bad point is that it is cumbersome to open the battery space because you need a screwdriver. But all things considered this is a very durable, easy to use and quick to install.
