Kenyon has released its new patent-pending collapsible Silken Grill Lid to the RV market.
While RVing, grilling with a lid can be difficult with onboard space limited, but Kenyon has released the lid, saying there's no need to compromise quality of food because of tight quarters.
Through the use of high temperature silicone, the Silken Grill Lid can collapse accordion-style to a height of two inches and also can be completely removed to be placed in storage.
The insulation quality of the high temperature silicone allows for fast and even heat while the lid helps to prevent accidental burns.
The lid has two handles - one on top and one on the front edge - and vents on three sides. Cleaning can be accomplished with a paper towl.
Other features include total dimensions of the grill at 16.05 inches long, 112.17 inches wide and 4.43 inches tall, while it is 2 inches tall with the lip collapsed. The lid also can be dishwasher safe.
