The Cobb cooker is an incredible cooking device that allows you to cook just about anything. That’s what the company claim and that’s what we’ve been putting to the test, first hand, in Mauritius.
You probably wouldn’t expect to put anything on a grill besides a couple of sausages or a big juicy steak, but the Cobb is capable of so much more, and if you get your hands on the right accompanying accessories, you can achieve just about anything.
Here are 7 unexpected ways to cook on your Cobb:
Who doesn’t love Pizza? With your favourite toppings, this meal is always a winner. The Cobb Pro Black is your cooker of choice if you’re an avid pizza maker. Even if you’ve never made a pizza before, you’ll be shocked at how easy it. For this meal, you’ll need to get your hands on the Fenced Roast Rack and the Pizza Stone. Simply heat the stone that’s been placed on the rack within the cooker, and in just 15 minutes, you can pop your base and toppings in. Close the lid of the cooker, wait another 15 minutes, and dinner is served!

Gather your ingredients and throw them onto the Frying Pan or the Supreme Frying Pan (depending on which Cobb cooker your own) and cook it as if you were in front of your stovetop in the kitchen. But you’re not in your kitchen... you’re on the beach with your toes in the sand. A little crabs walks by, he’s after your breakfast! Best you eat quickly so you don’t have to share your grub.
With the Bread Tin, you can actually make more than just bread. How about a cake? Absolutely! We once made a Gateau Banane (Banana loaf) and it was sensational! For this job, you can use either of the Cobb cookers along with the Fenced Roast Rack or the Supreme Fenced Roast Rack paired up with the Bread Tin.

You’ve gone camping and cleverly taken your lightweight Cobb along with you. Why pass on your caffeine fix during an outdoor experience when you don’t have to? Coffee, or just about any hot beverage for that matter, can be prepared on the Cobb with the Cobb Kettle. It comes with two mugs, an extension and a carry bag. The Venturi technology allows for hot air to be pushed through the middle funnel of the kettle, heating and boiling the contents quickly.
A coffee a day keeps the grumpy away!
