A lawn mower that mowed grass by itself while grilling steaks would be awesome.

I thought it was going to be a robot that looked like George Foreman with a chef’s hat.

I’m not lazy. I can open the cooler for myself.

Dumbest thing ever. How could it possibly put enough downward pressure (weight) on the grill to get it clean? It’s freakin’ plastic.

It takes 15 seconds to scrape/brush a grill once it’s hot. I worry about whoever buys this, as well as whoever invested in the manufacturing.

I just use a balled-up wad of heavy-duty foil with the edges sticking out, takes no time at all. Then I wipe what didn’t fall down with a couple sheets of paper towels, balled up.

Yes indeed, it is a $100. grill brush. Crazy.

Another ‘gadget’ to clean; just what I need. I have grill brushes and scrapers, so I’ll save the $100 and get some nice filet mignons & steakburgers from Allen Bros.

I just showed this to my cousin, a man with six gas grills. He said he’d shoot it and the person who put it on one of his grills. (Note to Obama and NSA - he was not serious)

Much to many people’s dismay, I don’t brush or scrape my grill. The heat and flame keeps it clean enough for me. I’m not interested in getting tiny flecks of metal in whatever I cook next. Just me,

I agree. If one uses a metal brush on the grilling bars and piece of metal comes out of the brush and ends up in a burger or steak it could bring about serious problems if bitten into or swallowed.

Then, they’ll make one that plays music. After that, they’ll come up with one that calls you on the phone and tells you the grill is clean. And then, they’ll have lasers and be invisible and they’ll rule the world! I hope all you barbecue people will be happy then serving your robot masters! They’ll make you clean the grill!

“With Style”?

I’ll get one and go down to that fancy schmancy country club and apply for membership.

“I’m sorry, sir, but we only allow people with style in this club.”

“Oh, have you seen my Grillbot? It’s orange. Is that fancy enough for you?”

“Please forgive me. Come right on in! Would you care for a little weenie?”

“If that’s part of the initiation, then you can forget it! No one touches the privates except for the missus.......and Marie Osmond if she wanted to.”
