Top ReviewsAs Crummy As You'd Expect...

2 starts just because it was a fun idea, got this for my bother in law for his birthday who loves to BBQ. He was really excited to try it out while we were camping; worked for one round heating up in the fire pit, then marked one steak (I recommend branding the already cooked side - he branded the uncooked side then flipped it over and it mostly scorched off). We put it back in the fire to warm up again and when we pulled it out, the letters fell everywhere. The side brackets that hold the letters in were not secure enough. I suggested stretching them out so they fit more snug next time...I don't think there's going to be a next time as it was a bit of work and pretty disappointing :(
This item is a piece of junk

I would recommend that NO ONE buys this chinese piece of crap. Out of the package, it looks good, but the letters are not uniform in size, leading to wobbly markings and letters FALLING OFF. I had to bend the two u-shaped pieces to fit and keep the letters in place, which it still didn't do very well. Once I did get the letters in place, I left it on my charcoal heat for 5-10 minutes. Tried to brand my meat, and it DIDN"T WORK. The head that the letters fit onto is aluminum, which is stupid, it must act like a heat sink or something. It wasn't hot enough to do anything but get messy and drop letters in my grill. Do not buy this.
A funny novelty but not effective

This little brander was a fun gift for my dad and was pretty cool the first time we used it, but it is super impractical. It's hard to get the letters in, the letters don't look great, and the pieces are small and get lost easily, so I wouldn't buy again. I would just have a nice one welded through an etsy seller. You get what you pay for though, as far as kitchen things go so I should have expected it to be a little junky.

Cute idea, but not exactly practical. I bought it as a gift for my dad, but he hasn't gotten much use out of it. I thought it would be nice for him to be able to stamp the steaks with "rare" "medium rare" etc, but realized that changing out the letters for each steak would be a messy pain in the neck.
Great product, lots of fun. Proofread food before serving to children :)

This was a Christmas gift. It arrived on time, as described. And then the grill broke. Because of course it did.
Anyway, we tried it indoors using the stove top (gas flame) and it worked fairly well. Once the grill is up and running I have no doubt it'll be great. In the meantime, my boyfriend entertains himself by searing inappropriate comments into food. Personal favorites- "that hurt" and "eat my meat"
Pleased with my purchase

Pleased with my purchase. This was bought as a gift, I assembled the plate before wrapping my gift and can't wait for my uncle to receive it!! Great buy for a grilling fan, customizable double plate is perfect for any occasion.
Packaging needs cleaning

Received when promised and product was exactly as described. I scored 4 out of 5 stars because product packaging was dusty and dirty, I tried to clean the packaging (because these were bough for gifts) but even still they looked old like they had been sitting forever on a warehouse shelf. Otherwise loved it, perfect for the bbq quru.
it's pretty cool, but could have been better

The letters are actually pretty small and a pain to load in and out. Not that it's difficult, it's just a process. Especially if you want to write different things on different pieces of meat you might be grilling. Kind of hard to clean too. You have to really heat it up good and then press pretty hard on the meat and leave it there for a while to get a nice sear. This will probably take some practice. Also be careful not to get dark grill marks on the meat or you won't be able to read what it says :/
Overall I enjoy using this and it's a lot of fun, but I wish the letters were a bit bigger and a bit easier to change out.

I purchased this branding iron, as opposed to the other brands that come personalized, so my husband could change the messages any time he wants. He likes the fact he can change the letters/words, however it didn't "brand" as well as we had hoped. Also it is very difficult to clean.

i gave as a gift and he wasn't able to use it, which created awkwardness. the letters don't seem to get hot enough to do anything.
