This little gadget has the potential to take your summer cookouts from regular old outdoor get-togethers to festive feasts. It doesn't go on sale very often — we don't expect the price to drop until it's time to put away the grill for the season.

If you're not quite familiar with what a grill basket is, this contraption is a heavy-duty stainless steel basket that closes like an envelope and is equipped with an easy-to-remove handle. It lets you go beyond burgers and hot dogs — you can add fish, veggies and anything else that might fall through the grate of a grill. All you do is prep your zucchini and salmon or whatever else you want to grill, pile it all in the basket, close it and set it on the grill. The handle is removable, but if you want, you can leave it on during cooking — it's heat-resistant. In addition to all that, it comes with a basting brush, four stainless steel skewers, and a carrying bag.

This gadget isn't limited to the backyard — with its portability, you can take it camping, to the park or tailgating. It's also easy to clean and it's compact for simple storage.

More than 2,000 satisfied cooks rave about this grill basket.

Shoppers enjoy using this basket for grilling small items.

"Fantastic grilling companion!" gushed a five-star fan. "It has truly transformed my grilling experience. The set comes with durable stainless steel baskets that are perfect for grilling delicate vegetables and smaller cuts of meat."

"I love grilled veggies but they tend to fall through the grates," a rave reviewer wrote. "This little cage does a great job of keeping them contained. Would be great for other small foods such as shrimp, chicken wings, etc. The clamshell style opening makes loading, unloading, and cleaning simple."

Other shoppers have a couple of qualms about it.

"It seems to be very sturdy and easy to clean," a reviewer shared. "I wish it were a little bigger - it's standard size, but I may order another one to serve ore than 2 people. I like it and recommend it."

"I have been wanting a grill basket for a while," wrote another shopper. "I am so happy to have come across this one so now we can grill fish and all sorts of different meats and vegetables without any worry! The only issue for me is the carrying bag. It is a tight fit for the grill basket and seems like poor quality compared to the grill basket, skewers, and brush."

Grilling is not just about burgers and hot dogs with this gadget.
