Melissa, the accessories are very sturdy. They are nice because you can put the lid on while you cook. The key to cooking with this grill is keeping the heat under that dome lid. The more you look, the less you cook.

The fry pan is a really nice addition for making breakfasts.

Thanks Terry! I was trying to decide which accessories I'd actually use. Wonder how much stock is out there? The fry pan isn't cheap, lol. Not sure the griddle is necessary since it's grooved so you cant do pancakes, eggs etc and the Cobb already comes with a grill rack so seems redundant. I did get the roasting rack. The utensils sure look nice and compact, don't need long typical utensils for this style of grill but didn't see them available anywhere. So anybody want to chime in on what accessories they actually use and what if any they wish they had and what "universal" items they have found works well I'm all ears.

I got the roasting rack, used a lot, griddle is used a lot, teflon coated pizza pan, can be used for pancakes, wooden cutting board, used a lot. I also recommend the round charcoal briquets, better than the other brand for taste.

Jim, do you mean a Cobb Pizza Pan or just any pizza pan? Can you elaborate on when/why you use the grooved griddle instead of the grill plate? Thanks again!

The stock grooved grill is used the most, do not know about the grill insert, the flat pizza pan is by Cobb, as are all of these being discussed.

I think cpaharey is calling, what I call a frying pan, a pizza pan. Easily used as either. The roasting rack is also used a lot. The cutting board makes the perfect place to set the lid, but you can get along fine without it. If you are into having the grill marks, the grill is good, but you can obtain the same results, taste wise, with the fry pan or the grill plate that comes with the basic set.

This video is very helpful if you get the accessories, because it can be real tricky getting everything in that tight little bag. Everything fits but the cutting board.


I like coconut briquettes for cooking. Clean, long burning, hot, less ash.

Great Video! I'd have to make a note card with the steps to remember how to pack it, lol. I will watch for a sale on accessories now. Places might start clearancing them out. Can you get coconut briquettes locally or is this strictly an internet purchase only?

I bought Charcos from Amazon, but they don't seem to carry them anymore. There is another brand a lot of people use. It comes in a brown box.

I like how the brand I bought comes all neatly stacked in a small box, like a box of blocks. I think they work out cheaper because they burn longer and hotter.

I keep watching for the others.

Melissab, it seems as though accessories are going quickly. I just bought another 2 roasting racks, the most useful of all the accessories. It is also the most used and most likely to show the signs of time. http://www.rvpartscountry.com/view_cart.asp

I found there shipping was the cheapest, by far, and they will honor any cheaper price.

So glad you posted this site Terry as I got a call from the RV place I ordered my rack from and was told it was out of stock. Hopefully I don't get the same notification from RV Parts Country.

When I ordered mine, they said they had either 34 or 37. I guess there would be 2 less than that, now. I am glad when anyone can get a bargain. terry R

Just bought a new Cobb Cooker on the internet for $129.00 and free shipping. Ebay prices were to high for used ones.

Watch the terminology: Box or Bag?

Good (helpful) video. Notice at the end he says that's how to pack Kitchen-in-a-Box.

"Kitchen in a Box" is what I received yesterday from Amazon, even though on Amazon, they call it "Kitchen-in-a-Bag." Their KIABag "what's included" photo shows the accessories that came in my KIABox box, so I don't feel it's been totally misrepresented; but I had thought, I guess from reading reviews on other sites(?) that a cookbook would be included. The "instructions" they sent are pretty minimal... although they are printed in a dozen different languages. It looks like a substantive little booklet!

To clarify: the Cobb site lists "Kitchen in a Box" AND "Kitchen in a Bag" - with KIABag having a lot more accessories than KIABox.

Honestly, FWIW, I knew I wasn't getting the cutting board or sample lighters, briquets (Cobblestones?), and other things included in the KIABag. Just disappointed there's no basic little cookbook to help get us started on using the things.

There ARE a few (3 or 4) recipes on the Cobb website... but I'll be looking around here on FiberglassRV.com (and asking questions) for input from those of you who are or will also be using one of these contraptions!

y'all

Mary,
You can have my cookbook, never used it. I use the Cobb like an electric skillet/crock pot. Slow cooks or grills. Now if I can just find that cookbook. By the way, I bought a case of the briquets, they work the best with the Cobb.

Thanks, Jim. Your comments are a help - and I did go back and read the thread where somebody (you?) said the cooker acts as its own charcoal-starting chimney.

I wonder about the freight on their charcoal, with them ceasing NA operations. Surely, surely, surely, they won't be shipping charcoal from South Africa. (Surely!)

Mine came from Florida. You do realize the history behind the Cobb and it's emerging country adaptability to use corn cobs as fuel?

I knew they were using them in Africa, but wasn't aware of the corn cob fuel. Great idea if it will work. I know charcoal is not abundant in at least some parts of Africa.
