If you want to make the party appetizers, you are probably making jalapeno popper. It's easy to grill this easy-to-please appetizer, and it's even easier if you have jalapeno racks. These racks even easy to clean and a breeze to store store, as they fold down flat after use. The basket has a hole for the jalapeno (and you can even secure it with a toothpick if you are using a smaller pepper). Each jalapeno sits upright in the holes, cooking the poppers upright. This cooks them more evenly, and it also creates less mess. You can still wrap your jalapeno poppers in bacon if you wish!

The item also comes with a stainless steel pepper corer with a black plastic handle, which can be used to cut off the tops and remove the insides of peppers. The rack is designed to hold peppers the right height above the grill to avoid burning.

If you aren’t sure what to make with a chili pepper rack, this item comes with access to some online recipes. And if that isn’t enough to convince you, it also comes with a lifetime satisfaction guarantee. So, no down side to this item at all.

This Product Is Ranked as the #1 Pitmaster’s Choice In The Jalapeno Racks Category

Steven Raichlen Jalapeno Grill Rack

The Steven Raichlen jalapeno grill rack is made from stainless steel with a brushed finish. It measures 5” x 2” x 11” approximately. There are eighteen 1” holes in the item, in three rows of six. The ends are shaped into handles for carrying, and underneath it has two wide legs. The pepper grill rack comes with a tool for cutting and coring peppers, consisting of a steel blade and an ergonomically shaped plastic handle.

This particular stuffed jalapenos grill rack is obviously made from a single piece of steel mass produced by a stamping machine, which means the quality and finish aren’t the best. And the corer is also cheaply made. But both items work as intended, and the cheap construction is reflected in the price.

Charcoal Companion Stainless Steel Jalapeno Rack

This Charcoal Companion jalapeno rack is about 9” square and 2” deep. It’s made from stainless steel with a brushed finish. There are thirty six 1” holes in the top, arranged in six rows of six. The folded sides of the metal form feet on two sides and simple handles on the other two.

As you might have guessed, this stuffed jalapenos rack isn’t the best quality. In fact the quality is very low, the finish is poor and it has some sharp edges that should have been removed. The whole thing looks like it was designed and made by people who didn’t know what it was going to be used for. It wouldn’t look out of place in a chemistry lab. There are far better, sturdier, or simply better finished jalapeno grilling racks out there, so I’d recommend you this product but with reservations.

King Kooker Pepper Roasting Rack

The King Kooker pepper roasting rack is made from stainless steel with a polished finish. It measures around 10” square and is almost 2” deep. In the top are thirty six holes, arranged in six rows of six. The holes are 1” in diameter. Two of the sides are folded over to form legs, the other two lip-style handles.

As for the corer that comes with the stuffed jalapenos rack, well, it’s basically a cheap vegetable peeler, so not really a positive. Overall, I’d recommend this product only with reservations.

Outset Jalapeno Popper Holder

The Outset jalapeno popper holder is made from stainless steel with a brushed finish. It’s approximately 11.5” x 8” x 3” in size, with a height of 1.75″ with the legs folded. On the top there are 24 flared holes, in four rows of six. The holes are around 1” in diameter.

When it comes to cleaning up after the fun, this stuffed jalapenos rack is dishwasher safe, but it’s easy enough to clean by hand, apart from the hinges that hold the legs, but they shouldn’t get too greasy anyway.
