The Primus Kuchoma Grill arrived just before our trip to Scotland, when it arrived I was impressed by it's simple yet effective design. Let's be honest we all like things that look nice and this is an attractive bit of kit, it's sleek and dark.
We arrived in Scotland our first destination was Milarrochy Bay on the shores of Loch Lomond, we set up the tent, after the 7 hour drive we just wanted to eat. Burgers sprang to mind quick, easy and filling. The Kuchoma is compact and portable which was handy because whilst everyone was finishing off the unpacking, I was cooking dinner.
The Adventures Begin
The next outing was to be a little more grand. We had planned to eat on the shores of Loch Ness however this wasn't be, whilst travelling from Glencoe to Loch Ness the weather got progressively worse. I mean that you couldn't see the Loch at all the mist was that thick. Determined not to lose the day I decided that we would chase the sun! So we drove 56 miles from Loch Ness to Eilean Donan Castle, taking in some beautiful scenery and finding sunshine. A more grand setting for dinner you could not have planned.
Is It Easy To Use?
Cooking on the Kuchoma is a pleasure, it's really easy to use. If you're like me and like a rare steak then you're in for a treat this cooks steak to perfection! However it's not just great steak we've cooked many different meats and vegetables on it. The lid is great if there're flying insects about, also if you want to protect the flame from any wind. Scotland can be a little windy and so can Lizard in Cornwall if you're cooking on a cliff whilst waiting for the sunset.
You can see how portable and versatile it is (we have taken it island hopping in the canoe), we have taken it on four long trips. We haven't had time to take it on a day trip yet, but we will. You can easily pop it in the boot with a cool bag of food along with some tableware or a little hamper. The grill grate is non stick and easily removal and so is the drip tray this makes it easy to clean. The Piezo ignition is always welcomed by us, no need to carry or try and lite matches in the wind.
The Primus Kuchoma is powered by the smaller screw on gas canisters.
