"As avid griddlers ourselves," say Camp Chef's engineers, "we've infused this product with the features we know make a difference: enhanced functionality for versatile cooking; a pre-seasoned surface that handles any recipe with ease; and a simplified cleaning process to cut down on after-dinner toil." They're talking about the new-for-2024 Gridiron 36 Flat Top Grill. Bolstering a new sleek design with innovative features, the Gridiron 36 hits all the touchpoints that avid outdoor chefs know will give them best possible griddling experience.

The new Gridiron 36 includes a built-in griddle leveling system allowing the griddle to be leveled even while hot, making your griddle experience safe and easy. The Gridiron also has a flamethrower ignition valve, to allow one-step lighting and eliminate the frustrations of a faulty ignition system. The reinforced lid is a key feature that is smooth, reliable and protects your griddle. Grease management and a high-quality griddle were top of mind while developing the Gridiron.

Camp Chef listened to customer feedback and designed a sturdy True Seasoned griddle that features cross bracing to eliminate warping. The large trough near the front of the griddle features a conveniently located hole to allow all grease and food particles to easily drop into the grease chute and grease bucket using disposable liners. Keeping clean while cooking has never been easier. The Gridiron includes two folding side shelves with our integrated magnetic accessory system to complete the most thought-out design in flat top grilling.

The new Gridiron 36 has 616 sq. in. of cooking space. Additional accessories are sold separately to complete the Gridiron cooking system. Accessories include a Griddle Scraper, Spatula Set, Bottle Caddy, Magnetic Paper Towel Holder, Silicone Griddle Mat, Griddle Cleaning Kit, Breakfast Kit, and Smash Burger Kit. You can even convert it to use natural gas (with Camp Chef's instructions and a widget). MSRP for the base model is $499;
