    She looked at the Q1000 again and now doesn't like the cast iron racks. She doesn't think they'll be good for corn. And that more flame will go through a stainless steel rack.

    She wants a rack like a toaster oven.

    Are there any stainless steel racks that can be used instead of the cast iron racks? Not as an expansion to the cast iron racks.

    I can also try to show her this video of this guy grilling corn on a similar rack:

    Otherwise, what should I do?

    Go with the Go Anywhere Gas? (I haven't mentioned that to her yet). Nevermind, the Go Anywhere Gas also has grates that look similar, even if they aren't cast iron.

    Another brand/model?

    Ultimately, I want to solve her problem of not having a portable grill anymore. If I can't convince her that a cast iron rack will be just as good, and if there are no stainless steel alternatives, I need to find something else she will believe in.

    The Q1000s that are open box don't accept returns. If they did, at those lowered prices, she would have been ok with trying one. The ones that do accept returns are at normal prices, which she doesn't want to do.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

    Arun, have you ever seen a “Go anywhere”?
    It’s a totally different CONCEPT from a “Q” whatever.
    Pal, you need to do a little research about what your mother will do with it.
    The “Q” is probably twice the area of a “Go Anywhere”.
    The Cast Iron grates are head and shoulders above the wide spaced things she is thinking about but, she is your mother.
    A “Go Anywhere” in its gas format should not be more than a hundred bucks, it’s small but, it will “Go Anywhere”!
    Not much bigger than a large shoebox, the “Q” is easily three times that.

    90% of the time she will be grilling 3 or 4 ears of corn. She may occasionally add asparagus.

    I will try to show her the video of the guy grilling corn on the Q1000. But if she still wants something with a stainless steel cooking grate, is there a brand and model of a portable gas grill someone can recommend? Her old one from a long time ago had a stainless steel rack, so that's probably what she trusts.

    Arun, as a person who grows and grills asparagus a couple of times a week when it is in season, and has 19 Webers both charcoal and gas, the Q is ten times better with the narrow openings on the cast iron grates. I grill broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, onion slices, peppers, roma tomatoes, even romaine lettuce all on the Q. Very rarely do I grill veggies on anything else. The cast iron grates are porcelain enameled so will last quite a while if looked after. I think you will be hard pressed to find a small grill with SS grates. You can buy RC planebuyer ones for the GGA but they cost more than a new grill. They also have SS on Amazon for the Q but they are expensive too. Here are some pics to show what comes off the Q. Sorry I don't do corn.

    Noit that I'm familiar with the GoAnywhere grills, but I recall reading not long ago about how the quality of them has gone down. Does anyone know if that's true?
