Best grill ever!
This is by far the best grill I have ever used! It makes grilling so easy for the perfect family cookout! Can't wait to do a slow and low cook on it as it definitely holds temps more steady than any other grill I have used. I would absolutely buy this grill again, but definitely will not have to because of its indestructible construction!

Last grill you'll ever need to buy
I spent months researching kamado grills, even bought a small ceramic that was on sale for $200 before investing a ton of money in "The Real McCoy" to see that I would like a kamado at all over a gas or other charcoal grills I've used in the past. I finally bit the bullet and took the plunge. A few factors that made this my clear choice before buying it and falling deeper in love with it... #1 I was looking at the kamado joe 24" and the weight was just shy of 500lbs, I plan on moving in a couple years that's not something I want to lug around. The blaze is only about 170lbs. #2 in under a year my small ceramic was due to need new gaskets. The old ones had already worn out. The blaze doesn't use gaskets, it has a tongue and groove seals completely. #3 The blaze comes with a lifetime warranty, also in just under a year the fire bowl cracked on my ceramic grill. When I contacted the company they said that it didn't cover cracked Ceramic, they just informed me that it was probably from the grill cooling to quickly and I was responsible for the replacement. This leads to #4 the blaze doesn't use a fire bowl it just has three rows of grates, the lower for charcoal, the middle mainly for a heat deflector and the top one is self explanatory, this means wall to wall useable space. On my 15" ceramic only 13" was able to be used for a cook surface, you don't have to worry about your food hanging over the edge of the fire bowl and not getting even heat distribution or a mess running down the sides of the fire bowl. Lastly, cleaning the ash out is a breeze because the whole bottom is covered by a removable ash pan. I say last but that's just the last thing that was a deciding factor before I bought it. I've found many reasons it is a superior Cooker. Yes "cooker" because it's not just a grill or a smoker, it's extremely versatile, I use it for high heat searing, low and slow smoking, I got a pizza steel and it's a great pizza oven, and even do stuff in my dutch oven.

3 years on; not one problem; stunning performance
Just finished my 46th bag of lump (almost 500 pounds) burned and not a single issue. My previous 2 ceramic komados (BGEs) were a PITA by comparison. Blaze is a far better value; not to mention frustration free reliability. Ceramic is cheaper to get BUT expensive to keep AND temperamental to use. Blaze has transformed my BBQ reluctance into BBQ enthusiasm! Just buy it, you won't regret it.

I would buy this grill again without hesitation.
This is the best Kamado on the market in my opinion. It's never gonna break or fail you. The built in rotisserie option is excellent and never having to replace gasket is an added bonus.

Great Looking and Consistent Smoker
I've been using this smoker actively for over a year. There are less expensive options available, but none that compare with the great look of this kamado. I use it primarily for smoking and have great success with briskets, pork butts, chicken and ribs. Highly recommended.

Had mine for a year now...
Prior to the Blaze Kamado, I had a large Big Green Egg for 15 years. The people who bought our last house wanted it so I needed to replace it. I bought the Blaze and it is easily as good as the Egg if not better for slightly larger size, grate height options, and durability. I cook on this thing literally every night and it does everything the Egg can do and as well or better... slow cooks, fast cooks, etc. AND I never have to worry about replacing ceramic parts and putting new gaskets on ever again. Highly recommended!

The Skinny:

  • Industry first, solid cast aluminum kamado grill
  • Best in class lifetime warranty inside and out
  • Incredible cooking performance
  • Virtually indestructible
  • Beautifully blends with your stainless outdoor kitchen equipment

Things We Love:

If you've always wanted a ceramic kamado, but have been concerned about their potential for cracking or breaking, you can absolutely put away your fears with this Blaze Kamado! This grill is virtually indestructible and could literally last forever. It's made of an industry first, solid cast aluminum, and their slogan could not be more appropriate - this kamado is "just that tough"! You can even take it camping or tailgating without fear and cringing over every bump in the road. I also just love the way this grill looks! With it's beautiful silver finish and 304 stainless accents, it will seamlessly blend with the rest of your stainless steel equipment in your outdoor kitchen.

If you've read my other reviews or watched any of my videos, you know how much I love kamado cooking. As far as cooking performance, this Blaze Kamado is right up there with the best of them! Heat retention is one of the most important features of a kamado grill, which are known for holding their temperature during long cooks, and the Blaze kamado is no exception. I found the thick cast aluminum walls to hold heat just as well as the ceramic kamados I've cooked on for years. I also like the unique tongue-and-groove design, which seals the grill lid tight to the base, allowing very little to no heat escape. Ceramic kamados utilize a gasket to achieve their seal but those gaskets need replacing from time to time. Along with the solid heat retention, the heat control is top notch. The lower air intake features a multi-function door with a dial for precise control and the built-in, cast aluminum top air vent, allows you to easily set the vent opening, and it stays put even when lifting the lid.

Speaking of lifting the lid, 304 series stainless steel lift-assist hinges allow for very easy opening. You can really feel the difference if you've lifted other kamado lids, which tend be be bulky and kinda heavy.

Under the hood, you'll find a 20-inch stainless steel hex grill grate. The grate is made of 12mm 304-grade stainless steel, providing amazing heat retention and a large surface area for beautiful sear marks. The grates also feature two hinged sections, which makes adding charcoal or wood chunks a breeze. Underneath this main cooking grid is an 18 inch, equally thick, 304 stainless steel, multi-purpose grate. You can actually cook food on this grate and the top grate at the same time, which almost doubles your cooking space, or you can set a pan of liquid or a heat deflector on it when indirect cooking. Under the multi-purpose grate is an equally thick, 304 stainless steel charcoal grate. When it's time to clean out the ashes, I love the full width, lift out ash pan. That pan is certainly more convenient and effective than scraping out the ashes on a regular ceramic kamado.

Another neat benefit of the Blaze Kamado's cast aluminum construction, is that it can handle any fuel source, even regular charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid, unlike ceramic kamados with their porous nature. Personally, I would always recommend cooking with lump charcoal but it is nice to know you can use briquettes and lighter fluid in a pinch.

As for accessories, the rotisserie accessory with separate charcoal basket is an awesome add-on and I like how the 304 stainless steel side shelves are so sturdy.

Finally, I love this grill's warranty. The Blaze Kamado is backed by a best in class lifetime warranty on all of the grill's components - that's all components inside and out. I'm not sure how it's possible to break anything on this grill, but you can have confidence in knowing that Blaze will stand behind your grill for a lifetime.

Things To Consider:

While the full width ash pan is a nice and effective feature, you have to remove all three grates in order to lift it out for clean up.

You'll Like This Grill If:

If you want the toughest kamado grill on the market, backed by a best in class lifetime warranty, that looks and cooks great too.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
