Perhaps the only downfall to summertime grilling is having to race against the sun to ensure that there's enough light outside to get the job done right. Who wouldn't grill all day every day (and night) if this weren't the case? However, Cuisinart is doing what it does best and is selling an under-$30 solution to this problem. Take that, sun.

The LED expandable light clamps onto grill handles to illuminate your cooking space instantly. The battery powered device has nine lights spread out throughout its based and can shine for up to 10,000 hours, so you won't have to be making pit stops at the grocery to buy batteries any time soon.

It's an accessory that's relatively simple, but shoppers say it's just what they needed for their outdoor endeavors. Even for larger grills, the light's expansive glow is more than sufficient, especially when it's expanded to its full 7.5-inch by 8.5-inch size (just don't forget to buy a pack of AAA batteries prior to testing it out).

"For a small unit, it lights up the grilling surface perfectly," wrote one reviewer. "[It's] easily attached to the handle and can be positioned to light wherever needed."

The bright light can also help you hone in on whatever you've got on the grill, from shucks of corn to rib eye steaks. It puts a spotlight on the meal you're whipping up and gives you more insight into how things are cooking—after all, it's easy to spot char marks when the meats and veggies are lit up.

One shopper said the "really wide beam of light" can even illuminate their 780-square-inch grill. "It's been a real pleasure this winter using this instead of trying to hold a cell phone light under my chin, while I hold the lid up and turn the meat," they wrote.

And, most importantly, it won't be affected by high heat. According to the brand, it's made from glass-reinforced nylon that "can handle the rigors of grilling." Not to mention, it's on sale for 22% off. You'll save $7, and get a new go-to gadget in a few clicks of the mouse.

Expand your grill time and make every meal shine like a star by shopping this glowing gadget below.
