Price:$84 

Walmart reviews rating: 4.7 stars

Total number of reviews:260   

Flat-top or griddle grills have increased in popularity in recent years and are an option for people looking to cook a wider variety of food with relative ease. (It’s arguably easier to control the temperature of a griddle grill and you don’t have to worry so much about food falling through its cracks.) 

Road trippers or campers looking to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner might want to consider this well-rated outdoor griddle from Blackstone, which offers 268 square inches (or “nine hamburgers, twelve eggs, or four steaks”) worth of primary cooking space. It features a stainless steel burner (operating at 12,000 BTUs), steel griddle top and rear grease management system. 

Reviewers were generally pleased with the griddle’s performance and versatility on the road. The drawback here is Blackstone’s relatively short one-year warranty.  

How to buy a grill at Walmart

Walmart offers a variety of shipping, pickup and assembly options on its website. These options vary by product, location and vendor. (Similarly to Amazon, Walmart partners with third-party retailers to expand its online offerings.) Walmart+ members can get free next-day or two-day shipping on many of the retailer’s grills. A Walmart+ subscription costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year. Customers can try the service for free for 15 days.  

For many larger ticket items, Walmart offers a protection plan (co-sponsored by insurance company All-State) that shoppers can purchase at checkout. The price varies by length of policy and the product you’re buying. The plan generally kicks in after the manufacturer’s warranty expires, so be sure to read your grill’s warranty to better understand whether additional protections are worth buying.
