Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE Review
Unlike many portable gas grills that are small and are meant to be used as a tabletop, an attractive and unique feature of the Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE is that it is a full size grill that can stand on its own or collapse (with its scissor legs) for travel or for using on a counter-top. The following review is meant to be the most complete review on the internet for this gas grill. It is based on extensive research and hundreds of customer reviews. We hope this will save you time. This is our goal with all of our reviews.
Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE Fuel Usage
The Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE has two 10,000 BTU burners. For those who are completely new to this, BTU is simply a standard measurement that indicates the amount of energy output of any heating device. The burners can be hooked up to a 16.4 ounce disposable propane cylinder (which costs around three dollars and lasts between 2 to 4.5 hours) or you can hook your gas grill to a 20 pound tank by getting an additional accessory.
Since this gas grill puts out a lot of heat and can cook burgers in less than ten minutes most reviewers found that using the disposable propane cylinders works just fine. Although if you plan on using it a lot and want to save in the long run you may consider getting the accessory that allows you to connect it to the 20-pound tank. In either case the propane is not included but you can get the disposable tanks easily at places like Target.
Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE Size and Dimensions
The Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE has a 36-inch grill.
It also has two nice side tables that attach to the grill’s sides. These are convenient for having extra space to use for preparing your food on and they store nicely below the grill.
When the grill is collapsed it measures 36 by 22 by 13 inches.
The shipping weight is around sixty pounds (Amazon has the free shipping option and almost always has the best price).
There is 285 square inches of cooking space. Most reviewers have commented on the fact that the cooking space is plenty for a family and even for having guests as well.
Since it does cook fast you can easily cook eight burgers or more at a time and continue to cook more. Some reviewers advise to just use one burner (unless you really need both) to make cleanup easier.
Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE Clean Up
This is a concern for many reviewers. The product description claims that the cleaning is easy. The grill grates are coated in porcelain to make it easier to clean. Also, there is a grease tray that catches the drippings and it slides out to make it easy for cleaning.
What do the actual people that purchase it say about the cleaning? This is probably one of the two features where there is the greatest difference of opinion. Some say it is very easy to clean up. Others claim that is is one of the things that they don’t like about it. More on this topic under customer reviews and under cons.
Other Features of the Coleman 9949-750 Road Trip Grill LXE
Another component to the Coleman Gas Grill that makes it so easy to use is its Instastart electronic ignition. You do not need matches or anything to get it started (although you do have the option of using matches if you prefer to).
The legs have wheels on one side and a wide handle on the other side which makes it easy to carry around. There are also tool holders as well as the small tables built in on its sides
A hot grill. One reviewer states that he gets the same results with this grill on Med-low as he does from his large grill at home on Med-High.
The Coleman Roadtrip LXE Grill is as easy to setup as it is to take down. One reviewer says that she can do it with ease even as an 80 year old lady!
