Did you know you can search Amazon to find the most popular products in all sorts of categories? That means you don’t have to waste time scrolling through pages of search results or reading customer reviews to find the best of the best. You can simply look to see what most people are buying and go from there. (It’s a less creepy way of looking in people’s real-life shopping carts while you’re at a store, and it’s a smart way to learn about new-to-you brands.)

While we have a pretty good idea of which food storage containers and cast-iron cookware are likely to be most popular among Amazon shoppers, grilling equipment is a broader category that includes some often-overlooked tools that only the most devoted grilling fans know about. So we took inspiration from their shopping habits and rounded up the most popular grilling gear for you to try at home. To our delight, some of these products are ones that our editors already tested and love themselves!

How can a set of kitchen tongs receive more than 24,000 five-star ratings? By costing only $7, having built-in locking mechanisms, and working perfeclty every time. These are heat-resistant and come in two lengths so you can easily grab stuff on the front or back of the grill. Having a second pair of tongs may seem unnecessary, but in the heat of the moment when you've got a grill full of different meats that need to be flipped, you'll love having some extra tongs handy.

Our editors are big fans of ThermoPro, so we're not surprised that this fold-out thermometer is so popular on Amazon, too (it has over 93,000 five-star ratings). This tool will give you an accurate temperature reading in three seconds and is powered by a single AAA battery. A must-have for anyone who perfers food cooked to the ideal temperature (i.e. everyone).

Grilling in the dark? Each of these lights have nine high density LEDs to light your way. They’re battery-powered and magnetic, so you just stick them onto the lid or side of your grill and angle the light to where you need it.

This bestselling grill brush has an average 4.7-star rating, which is REALLY hard to get! Reviewers call it “the best grill brush you can buy.” The bristles stay intact (the biggest concern when it comes to cleaning your grill) and it has a built-in scraper to remove tough stuck-on food bits. The biggest complaint seems to be that people wish it had a longer handle, but the company designed it this way to give you the most scraping power.

Curious to try wooden grilling planks? These are the most popular ones on Amazon. Shoppers like them because they don’t char as easily as other planks, they’re big enough to put a few filets on each, and they impart a “magical” flavor that will make you look like a grilling master.

This delicious spice blend is at the top of the list of seasoning rubs. You might think it’s just for pork butts, but it also works great on steaks, chicken, ribs, seafood, and veggies. It’s a blend of black pepper, paprika, and chipotle powder that gives a spicy kick to whatever you’re making.

This 16-piece grilling tool set comes with a Swiss knife, spatula, tongs, basting brush, cleaning brush, corn holders, and skewers. Plus, the case both makes it easy to keep track of all your tools and makes you feel like a certified grilling pro.

We have already sung the praises of this grill basket and we’ll do it again. It's a bestseller on Amazon and an essential piece of grilling equipment for anyone who likes to cook veggies on the grill and doesn't want to worry about losing them through thegrates. Reviewers call it “amazing” and “perfect,” and we couldn't agree more.

This mini version of the classic kettle grill is a long-time favorite among campers and apartment dwellers who have access to minimal outdoor space. It can cook up to five burgers at once and weighs less than 10 pounds, so you can easily take it on your next adventure. Just remember to grab some charcoal briquettes, too.

Good luck finding a gas grill that's more portable and affordable than this super compact one from Char-Broil. It packs up into a tiny and self-contained case, and because it's so simple, it's easy to take apart and clean whenever you need to. One of the most small-space-friendly grills we've ever seen.
