Tool to Make Grilling Easier!

Winter has recently passed and we have now entered spring. Pretty soon, summer is just around the corner which means more outdoor activities to partake in! What a better activity than spending time at the park with family and friends through sports, games, and especially barbecue! Grilled meat, hot dogs, kebabs, burgers, corn on cob, you name it, they will all be there and the possibilities of foods are endless! Various foods do call for various tools to be used and sometimes, it can be a little inconvenient to gather each tool for the job.

I imagine that as the cook, one would need at the very minimum a spatula and tongs for grilling and flipping the meats. Depending on the quality of the tongs, the foods may slip off them due to the weight and grease. Some type of fork would be essential as well for holding the foods in place to allow for cutting. When your arms are tired, you will probably want to set the tools down so your arms can rest. Unfortunately, now you have to worry about the tool being contaminated. Who knows what microbes could be living on the table surface! (Click here to read about microbes!).

Is there a way to minimize having to obtain so many types of tools for the job! You bet there is!

Rather than obtaining each tool for the job separately, wouldn’t it be better if all those tools came in one package such as the TNK Stingray 7 in 1 BBQ Grill Multi tool? By purchasing this tool, not only will you have 7 tools in one, but you would essentially free up your other hand to do other tasks. You are like a one man army chef running a restaurant!

Some details about the multi tool:

  • The tool is about 16 inches in length.
  • It is made of stainless steel.
  • The grip has rubber pads for easier handling.

What are the 7 Function of this Multi Tool?

  1. Spatula
  2. Tongs
  3. Toothed tong (allows for finer grip of slippery or heavy foods)
  4. Fork
  5. Launch control (To release the food stuck to the fork)
  6. Curved Spatula (So that it will not touch the table surface and get dirty)
  7. Bottle Opener


The only other essential thing that this 7 in one multi tool does not come with is a cutting tool like a knife. Because most of the other tools you need can be found in one, you now have a free hand to do other things. You can cut the meats, hold a plate, drink a beverage, or even talk on the phone!

There is a ringed structure at the opposite end of where the 7 tools are. When you grip the tool and pull on that ring, it will lock the tool in place. Whenever you need it again, just push on that ringed structure and the tool will open back up for use.

Knowing me and my crazy ideas, you can probably sharpen one side the spatula (not the toothed tong side, of course) to become a knife and you can essentially create 8 tools in one. However, you will still need another tool to hold the meat down in place to cut so perhaps it might not be the best route to take. Just an idea.


A time of barbecue is what everyone needs during summer. As the cook, it can be a little inconvenient to find the right tools for each cooking job. But with the 7 in one multi tool, that should no longer be an issue. You now have a free hand to do other tasks like cutting up the meat once cooked or talk on the phone. Pretty convenient I would say.

Although barbecue is a great time to spend with family and friends, the issue of COVID-19 is still around. Therefore, please remember to take extra care to protect yourself and your loved ones by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask, and maintain good hygiene! Other than that, please enjoy your future barbecue time with loved ones!

  1. I like this tool!  I hate having to have a bunch of tools out by the grill.  This is perfect.  I use tongs and the spatula most so having them on one tool is pretty cool!  And the price, not too bad.  I just bought a grill cleaner and that was the same price.  This is a bunch of tools in one!  Thanks!

    • Hello there, Leahrae! I am the same way about having too many tools just to cook. The worse is when you’re running out of space or even when one of the tools drops onto the floor. Then we have to take it to get washed.

  2. Great idea of this 7 in 1 multi tool, I love to grill outside , even during the cold weather, it’s just, the flavor of grill meats are amazing, I will make sure I ad this great tool to my grilling collection.

    Looking at the pictures I’m already getting hungry! can’t wait for summer to do all the outdoor activities, including barbecues for my family.

    • Hello there, Ana! I agree with you there with the amazing flavor of grill meats, can definitely smell it from a mile away. 

  3. Thank you so much for this very informative post!  I am always looking for tools to make grilling easier.  I am in the military, and a lot of my friends and me like to get together at least once a month and grill during the warm (and even no so warm) weather.  This tool has so many functions in one, and it would save a lot of space I believe!  It looks like it would be a great investment in my opinion!

    • Hi there, Jessie! You are welcome and thank you for your services in the military. This tool definitely does save a lot of space.

  4. Hi Mike,

    I share the same sentiments as well. There’s nothing that irritates than misplacing your tools when grilling. A bunch of tools in a limited space is the worst nightmare, you don’t want to experience that. The 7 in one multi-tool seems to be a convenient solution for all these troubles when making your BBQ. I’d love to have a free hand during a time of barbecue. The price seems fair as well. Will check out next week.

    Thank you for this great article. I will definitely share your article with my friends!

    All the best,


    • Hello there, Sergej! Having a free hand while barbequing is definitely one of the biggest pluses with this tool. Thanks for sharing this article!

  5. Hi

    My mouth is watering profusely as I go through your post. I love grilled meat so much and I really can not wait for summer to start those family park grills. Better yet farm grills on my part of the world are even better. I recently built myself a grilling area at my farm and all I am missing are some of the grilling tools. Sometimes it becomes quiet hard to find the right tools that one need. I am so happy with your recommendation of TNK Stingray 7 in 1 BBQ grill multitool. I really did not know it existed. I will be purchasing for myself

    • Hello there! I really miss that BBQ smell, felt like it has been a while. That’s really cool that you built a grilling area at your farm. Hope this product will make a great addition to your collection of cooking tools.

  6. Hello, Mike, thank you so much for this interesting article.
    We love BBQ, and we can’t wait to start. We even grill when there is snow on a sunny day. I can imagine trying this TNK Stingray 7 in 1 multi-tool. You are right, it is a hassle handling all those tools while grilling. How Many times a fork falls on the ground, and I have to go back in the house to clean it? One tool is perfect. I think I am gonna love this 7 in 1 multi-tool. Thank you so much for this.

    • Hello there, Monique! You are right, grilling doesn’t just have to take place in the summer! Might be a fun experience to try grilling during the winter too! I have dropped a lot of tools when grilling before, definitely a hassle to go somewhere to wash it. Hope you like and enjoy using the 7 in 1 multi tool.

  7. Hi Mike, as always, you share great tips, hacks, and products. This BBQ grill multitool seems the best choice to have in our BBQ tools and equipment for this year. I like the idea to invest in only 20 bucks for so many features and have a simple cooking time with one product. Let’s hope to have good weather to start with BBQ this weekend. 

    Thank you for sharing it.


    • Hello there, Alketa! Thank you for your comment. Definitely a great price for the amount of features it has. And definitely hoping for great weather to start BBQ this weekend!

  8. Hi Mike, I’ve just gone through your article about a tool to make grilling easier. I love this set of tools because as you clearly stated, it is a 7 in one and would free up another hand to do other tasks. It is also a very interesting set to have as a chef because it will save me a lot of time trying to organize all the tools I need for grilling. This is a must-have set and I definitely will get it for my family. Thank you for sharing this amazing post with au. I will be sharing it further too to spread the word.

    • Hello there! I am glad to hear you love this tool. Definitely helps make cooking much more convenient. Hope your family enjoys cooking with the tool. Thank you for sharing this with others.

  9. I think that one of the most needed characteristics we need to find in kitchen tools like these are the ones that are stainless steel, and from what I could gather from your review, this item fits perfectly when it comes to those standards that we’re looking for. I also really appreciate the fact that it’s a multi-purpose tool so it’s easier to carry and to maintain.
