Product Reviews

  1. Great Product!!

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2018

    If you have every owned anything with the RecTec logo on it then you know if their name is on it then the product is legit. The Matador is an absolute beast!! The amount of things that can be done on the Matador is endless!! It is also very portable and can be used pretty much anywhere. Take the Matador to the beach and cook water front or head to the mountains and cook out on the deck!! There is nothing like the RecTec lifestyle!!

  2. Awesome

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2018

    Great for multiple uses and Easy to take anywhere. Must have for a complete arsenal of outdoor cooking

  3. great for the price.

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2018

    So far i love this thing. Ive made fajitas. Steaks. Stirfry. And fried various foods. Cleans up nice and transports well. I had been eyeballing a similar product for a while but went with this one because of the price. Just from a visual inspection the Rec Tec is lighter but still good heavy steel. Rec Tec stand is better as in coveniance and support. My only complaint is paint damage from shipping and the top edge of my pan is uneven and had a couple of edges i smoothed down. Im unsure if this is a common thing but for almost 200 less than the competiton ill settle.

  4. great product

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2018

    Have already grilled fajitas for 10 and chili for 50 at a tailgate. Everyone is impressed. Goes thru the 16oz mini propane quick so would suggest bringing along the 20# big bottle when cooking the chili.

  5. Great product

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2018

    I was a little weary at first,,I thought oh no, just another propane burner,,,boy was I wrong,,,the pan is what makes this guy, You do anything with this setup,,,fry,saute, griddle! It's at the proper height also. Buy this now, you won't regret it.

  6. Wow!!!

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2018

    This is an awesome product. 2nd best invention since sliced bread. Uses very little oil compared to other cookers and its very versatile. I've cooked chili and stir fry, now I'm exploring other cooking options. Looking forward to summer time when I can try cooking fried Okra and squash.

  7. Matador

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2018

    My husband has little bed the Matador so far. It does take some getting used to for the temperature settings. Does not take up much space and collapses easily for storage and travel. I would highly recommend this product for those who like to tailgate or camp.

  8. Great addition to the outdoor arsenal

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2018

    Bought this a few weeks ago to expand my outdoor cooking potential and have been nothing but impressed. It assembled simply and cleans up in a jiff. Used it last Saturday for a large party and received a ton of compliments on how nice the pan is. Love the "taller" height of the burner, it sure beats bending over while cooking. If your thinking about buying one, do yourself a favor and do it. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

  9. one of my best purchases

    Posted by on 28th Feb 2018

    I have just recently started to really get into cooking and the matador really enhances my skills! I’ve made dishes I’ve never even thought about trying and it will fry wings to perfection! I LOVE IT!

  10. Awesome

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2018

    Absolutely love the Matador! Always fun trying to figure out what to cook on it next.

  11. very versatile

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2018

    Finally had time to do some cooking on the matador.... you can literally cook whatever you want on this thing... I cooked hibachi last night and it was fantastic.... I bought it more for travel but to be honest it’ll most likely be sitting next to my Rec tec 680 and get just as much use.... flat grill at its best

  12. awesomeness

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2018

    I have several propane burners that have used to chili, low country boil, etc. This one is taller, and a lot more versitile. You can cool chili, fry fish, stir fry, I have even fried a burger. The height of the burner reduces the back breaking bending over required of the lower burners. Plus the wind guard is great, I have never lost the flame even in the wind. The pan is steel and very heavy duty. Top notch, worth the price for sure.

  13. bull ring

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2018

    I bought the matador for camping in mind. I opened the box and put together the two simple snap rings and started up. I made fajitas. they turned out amazing. I did have a slight problem with regulator and rec tec customer service sent me out a new one. The grill and stand along with extra 6 ft cord are excellent I only rated at 4 at the moment because not a lot of cooking time yet to see how it holds up to the camping season then I probably bump it up to a 5. I'm sure it will hold up fine just don't know about the carrying bags.

  14. Matador review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2018

    Amazing quality, works awesome .
    Was excited to add this to my Rec Tec family.
    Although I am biased as I own both Rt-300 and 600 pellet grills. Have sold 8 grills in the past 2 yrs to friends and family on referral . Anxioslty awaiting the arrival of the new Trail blazer as I had given my son in law my 300 for christmas.

  15. Paella

    Posted by on 29th Jan 2018

    I am looking to see if anyone has any experience using this specifically for Paella. There are other brands, more expensive, but do have a special grill pan. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

  16. The Matador is AWESOME!!!!!

    Posted by on 29th Jan 2018

    I initially debated getting the Matador as I wasn’t sure I would really use it enough to justify the purchase. I finally pulled the trigger and haven’t looked back, and I have used it EVERY DAY since it arrived! It’s built really well, easy to set up, and crazy fun to cook on! The pan is a heavy duty stainless steel, and the handles don’t get hot so it’s easy to move around if you need to. It’s really nice that it comes with a 20 lb propane adapter. The bags that it comes with feel a bit flimsy, but I will only be taking it traveling with the RV so they should be fine. All in all I am EXTREMELY happy with the Matador! I did look at similar products, and Rec Tec doesn’t fail to deliver at offering a superior product at a better price!

  17. Absolutely AWESOME!

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2018

    What more can I say? The Matador is a great griddle/fryer/saute/sear/braise etc device that can do just about anything you want it to! Easily transportable and the cooking pan is a BEAST! If you're cooking at home, on the beach, camping etc it will not let you down. So glad Rec Tec came up with it. I'm sold on it and highly recommend it!

  18. Awesome Portable Cooker

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2018

    The Matador is an awesome portable cooker. I will be using it as an additional cooking source for my outdoor kitchen to go with my Bullseye and RT-680. It is very well made and durable as well.

  19. Quality product, very well designed

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    This product is extremely well designed. Much more solid than I expected and a great value at this price point. Easy to set up, quick to heat up, easy to clean. Can't wait to find more items to cook on this.

  20. Matador

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2018

    Easy to put together, quality is great and it cooks great.

  21. Once again, the RT folks hit it over the fence..

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2018

    Ordered this stout bundle of joy before the Email from RecTec had a chance to cool off because I'm tired of fragile gas grills failing out in the field ... it showed up on my porch a day before the Arctic decided to move South for the Winter. Upon unpacking it, I checked the massive pan thoroughly for a "Property of CBS Sports" logo on it cuz it literally has the look and feel of an old school satellite dish!

    That said, we got to break it in tonite with spuds-n-onions first, then a nice batch of last Falls crappie and bass.

    I ran a 1 pounder on it just to see how much mileage I could get. 5lbs of spuds to a nice, crispy brown and 4 rounds of fish in a quart of oil took about a half pound in a no wind area.

    Heads up! This sucker gets hot fast, stays hot, low cooks a tic on the hot side... and medium will fry about anything. A nice touch on the fish is that when the batch is done you just scoot it up the sides to drain and stay warm while the next batch goes in till you can transfer the warm batch to waiting plates.

    Cleanup was easy despite the fact the pan won't fit into any conventional sink.

  22. Awsome Matador !!!!°°

    Posted by on 20th Jan 2018

    Great cooker,fryer,wok jambalaya maker etc. Scrambled 240 eggs in it and fryered 200 chicken strips and did jambalaya for 150 people. Drove to Augusta for West Point met Jody and the team all around awesome experience. Great products Great customer suppurt

  23. works great, perfect height

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2018

    This is a great new addition to my porch, have used it a couple times so far...this compliments my rt680 perfect. The 1 thing I think would make it better like is an adapter so that I can use my cast iron pot to deep fry.

  24. Matador Beats Fire X Disc

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2018

    I have a Fire X Disc but ordered the Matador and love it!
    I have 2 RecTec Pellet grills and wanted to keep it all in the family!
    Well designed! Going to sell my Fire X Disc to a friend.

  25. Outstanding

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2018

    Received it shortly after Christmas sooner than expected. Cooked fried rice, veggies, shrimp, scallops and chicken in the pan at once as needed by cooking time for each. Grill worked excellent and was plenty of room to cook everything at ease. Grill will get very hot on high in the center so just back off the heat a little unless you need fast cooking. Once you get the food done just slide it off to the edge and cook something else till all is ready to mix together or serve.

  26. LOVE IT!!!

    I bought my husband a 680 for Christmas and got on your email list. I got the email about the new Matador the week of Christmas before he opened his massive gift. I watched the videos of you guys cooking on it and thought how cool. Well...within a couple of days I ordered it because I thought it would be great for camping and parties. Today was the first day we used it. First, I made “pizza frites” as my grandmother used to call them. It is basically fried dough, then you sprinkle powdered sugar on them or put marinara sauce on top or make mini pizzas out of them. Then as long as the oil was nice and hot and just right I fried flounder. Wow...everything was delicious. The pan/wok is massive and so sturdy. As with the 680, the quality of the Matador is outstanding. The stand folds and stores in a nice carry bag in seconds. The pan and windscreen fit in another carry bag. It is so easy to set up and breakdown. We are looking forward to using it for backyard parties. We can’t wait to do a chili party as we can make a massive amount. This is a super nice addition to our outdoor cooking gear. Thanks Rectec. We are thoroughly enjoying your products.
