Backyard Grilling Gadgets

“Up” your grilling game this summer with these grilling gadgets! The Gadget Gram’s David Novak shows us today’s products:Dragon Claw Kit


This combo set consists of two new, unique grilling tools: the Dragon Claw and Super Tongs, both made with stainless steel and specially-textured handle grips. The Super Tongs’ innovative angled design combines a small spatula and a tong with interlaced teeth to let the spatula close flat. The Dragon Claw’s 90-degree side tine adds real functionality to old-style grill forks by allowing a sideways use of the fork, which is more efficient than jabbing. With just a flick of the wrist, you can flip steaks and chops with the sideways tine of the fork, and then use the standard tines to lift and turn heavy roasts.

Its patent-pending design uses cross-wire support, allowing the shelf to hold up to 10 pounds. The Dragon Wing Shelf folds up instantly, allowing for easy storage inside or outside the grill. Constructed of heavy-gauge steel coated in black enamel, it is super-strong and durable.
