1. Flat Out Fantastic

With the perforated USA Porcelain Topper, cooking a tray of juicy kebabs was easy peasy. (It also made a mean batch of bacon.) The nonstick surface, about 12 by 17 inches, is great for a party or a big family meal. $12, charbroil.com

Grilling for one or two people? The 7 1/2-inch Stainless Steel Grill Basket from Weber is just the thing for a side dish, like potatoes or squash. It was also a fuss-free way to warm fresh berries for a shortcake, says our tester. $15, lowes.com

4. Handy Helper

The aluminum Mr. Bar-B-Q Deluxe Non-Stick Flexible/Expandable Grilling Basket makes flipping fish fillets a cinch. Same goes for items with different thicknesses, like zucchini and mushrooms. Caveat: This one is more gas grill–compatible—it works best when the grates are level with the grill's rim. $31, amazon.com

Tooling Around

6. B2Q Chicken Leg & Wing Rack

Chicken with skin can be tricky to grill, since fatty drips can cause flare-ups that burn your birds. With this steel rack, your wings float above the danger, leaving you with crispy-on-the-outside, moist-on-the-inside drumettes and flats. $7, amazon.com
