Having positioned the brand mainly in this niche of easy-to-use devices, I let you discover right away my 3 favorite Campingaz irons to make your choice easier!

Campingaz EXB2

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

iron campingaz exb2The Campingaz EXB2 is an efficient and functional iron. With its 2 burners (for a total power of 7500 W) and its double enamelled steel cooking plate, it offers healthy, even cooking, with perfect heat distribution and suitable for all types of food, whether meat, fish, seafood or vegetables. . Thanks to its 66 cm long and 42 cm wide cooking surface, it also has enough space to feed up to 12 people! (Cleaning is also easier thanks to the grease trap). Once installed in your car, it is even more practical since everything is close at hand. This trolley is equipped with a spice basket and 2 folding side shelves with utensil holders. And two large wheels make it easy to move the iron at the same time, put it in the garden or put it away.

My opinion : With its trolley, this plancha could clearly compete with the traditional barbecue! Aesthetically, it’s like that beautiful gas grill we proudly display in our backyard and performance-wise, we use it with such pleasure that we have a few grills. The lighting is simple, the preparations are tasty, and the shelves are really useful (especially for putting plates and utensils). I would even go so far as to say that it has almost more advantages since cooking and cleaning are much faster, and at this price it is also more affordable! What I also liked about this Campingaz EXB2 is that it has a very generous cooking surface: you can easily receive people and everyone eats at the same time. For more original but still pleasant summer tables, I recommend the plancha!

Campingaz L

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

iron campingaz lPreparing your meals outdoors, in the garden, without giving up the variety of dishes or their flavor, that’s what the Campingaz L plancha promises! Equipped with 2 aluminized steel burners and a double enamelled steel cooking plate, it produces uniform and perfectly adjustable heat over the entire surface of this plate, sufficient to guarantee cooking that is as precise as it is adapted to each food. In addition, the cooking surface is extra large: with 66 cm long and 42 cm wide, it is quite possible to prepare a meal for ten people at the same time. It works with a standard gas bottle (propane or butane), it also has a simple piezo ignition and it is also very easy to clean. For the dish, water is enough, while the tray to collect cooking residues can be put in the dishwasher.

My opinion : This Campingaz L is an iron that left me with a good overall impression! Although it is not the most powerful of the brand, it is not the most expensive either, so given its characteristics I would say that it has a good value for money. This should especially interest you if you are looking for a large plancha: its cooking surface is quite large and therefore very practical for cooking many foods at the same time. Especially since its 2 burners are independent and therefore you can create 2 separate cooking spaces. Do not be tempted by the additional options offered by the brand, in particular with the possibility of adding a trolley. At the prices displayed, the EXB2 that I presented to you a moment ago, and which displays similar performance, is a better option!

Campingaz Othello 2X

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

campingaz othello 2x ironThe Othello 2X manufactured by Campingaz is a plancha with a cast iron cooking plate. More qualitative than simple steel, it is also more efficient in terms of cooking. The brand has also associated it with the Blue Flame technology which offers an ideal and homogeneous distribution of heat, as well as the Even Temp technology so that the useful cooking surface exceeds 90%. Thus, everything is thought out so that each food is cooked to perfection, whether fish, shellfish, meat or vegetables. To share this culinary experience with your loved ones, the plancha has a large surface (60 x 40 cm), sufficient to make preparations for 10 to 12 people. Once the meal is finished, its cleaning is ultimately very simple: all the grease and cooking juices have been evacuated in a tray that can be put in the dishwasher!

My opinion : Campingaz offers many large planchas, ideal for barbecues on sunny days when the whole family or several friends come. And of all those that I have been able to try, I found that this Othello 2X offered very good cooking results, even better than the others! It’s probably thanks to the burners that coil under the plate and make it very hot, even when cooking large steaks. Like the brand’s products, the use is also very simple (connection to a conventional gas cylinder, piezoelectric ignition, removal of the integrated collection tray to clean it, etc.) and the quality is there. . . If cooking performance is one of your main search criteria and you can afford a slightly more qualitative plancha, then this model should not disappoint you!
