    Vintage Electric PK Grill

    Anyone have one of these? Interesting model. Not working but the seller wants $100 more than a new PK original. For pickup only in Topeka, Ks if anyone wants to negotiate with the seller.

    Let me see if I have this right. I can purchase a brand spanking new (clean) PK grill OR for another $100 I can get that filthy, non-working grill. What a conundrum!

      First one I've ever seen. But I'm saving my money to throw in a big hole in the water.

        I kinda like it. Would be cool if converted into a humidor, or cooler. Or even better, restored just for giggles.

          A cooler sounds like a great idea. I'm going to watch this auction, if it gets relisted several times I may make a (really) low ball offer.

        Hmmmm, 240v, was it aimed at the commercial/restaurant or foreign market? I suppose a home owner could plug it into a dryer circuit, but not a common thing on a patio.

          This has Mr. Bones written all over it once the seller gets real on price. Topeka ain't close to Salina, but not awful far. And he's a sparky to boot!

          ItsAllGoneToTheDogs Is that charcoal or those lava rocks? Hard for my old eyes to tell. However, it clearly says 'Not for use on solid fuels' so that would preclude the use of charcoal.

          @ComfotablyNumb the text in the eBay description says the last owner used it for charcoal and said charcoal is still in it lol. If it was a non-ebay listing I'd contact the seller and offer bottom dollar since the charcoal specifically shouldn't be used. Then I'd restore it because it is pretty unique

        Interesting.

          I wonder what temp it achieved when it worked, the dial is at 350 and is about halfway.

            Yeap, very interesting. It ran on 20 amps worth of 240v, which means most folks didn't have a plug readily available for that! Nor do they today unless they have a welder outside.

            Not sure why you'd want one other than if you collect old grills? I can imagine it ate heating elements about as fast as you could put them in it. I also doubt the controller liked wet weather duty outside either. So I am betting they didn't work real well and the power requirements it required never created a demand for them.

            Meanwhile maybe PK will buy it for their own collection. I've seen photos of some of their older stuff they have and I don't remember seeing an electric.

                1. I ain't 15 minutes away from 'Topukea' (sic)
                2. Ain't no harder makin a 240 V extension cord, vs. a 120 V, jus proper sized/rated wires, an plugs...
                3. I wish him well, with his sale...me? I think he's higher than giraffe poontang, my dang ol self. If he lowers it to $99, I still wouldn't be alla clamorin to go git it...
