The O-Grill is perfect if you dont have a lot of space. It can be used on a deck, taken on camping trips. We have had ours for four years. It has traveled in our car-- a little banged up but works great. The older model (the one we have) does not have the temp gage on the top. The newer model does. A price difference of about $50. They also sell a O-Grill O-Dock Collapsible Table for O-Grill Portable Barbecue Grills -- which i suggest. The reason we got it for camping -- it puts the cooking safely away from kids. Lots of camp grounds have pit fires -- not safe for small children. This makes great burgers, steaks and grilled corn no problem. It is worth the investment.
