This is a good BBQ for the money. The BBQ has a fairly even heat distribution and the bowl, cover and grills are sturdy.
However, there were some problems:
1. I agree with other reviewers that the instructions are awful - assembly took far longer than it should have (and involved a lot of cursing :). The four cotter pins were not included so I had to be creative and use bent nails instead.
2.The igniter does not work. (It seems every BBQ I've purchased over the years has had a wonky igniter so I've long ago resigned myself to using a butane lighter to start BBQs.)
3. The warming rack kept slipping out of the holes until I fashioned clips to keep it in place.

I was nervous based on others reviews about this grill. We purchased in December so are just trying it out now. So far everything has gone smoothly from assembly, customer service, and usage. The grill assembled in about 1 hour with 2 people. There was one plastic piece that was broken upon arrival and customer service made it easy to replace it for free. Everything has worked well on it so far. We've been really so far.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cruachan Worst instructions ever!
Bought this this morning. I am 76 and have purchased many bbqs over the years. This has the worst instructions I have ever seen. In the end the front panel never was installed as the instructions for it were on the last page and the BBQ would have to be dismantled. The list of materials should have been put at he beginning to see if all were sent. There were no instructions for installing the igniter. Have fun with this one if you have not put one together before. I have parts left over and have no idea where they should go.

I bought this for a large event I'd hosted. Price was great, assembly was fine. The grill is ok, but the handle becomes too hot to touch during use. The frame is terrible; when moved it rattles enough to shake nuts loose. Buy 1/4-20 and 10-24 lock washers and use them (and better tires if you can find them).

With very limited use to date, this grill provides ease and cooking as good as the $400 grill I also use for half the price. I think this grill will provide long service as it is well constructed ( I assembled it) and is a super value at $200.

I bought this BBQ 6 years ago from Home Depot. This is the best BBQ for the money. I've replaced the burner only once, and the top rack once. The bottom rack now is starting to rust through and a second burner is now required. Not bad, considering we use the BBQ all year long, including the winter. The frame and aluminum casing are both in great condition. I will replace the parts and keep using this BBQ for many more years to come. It should last another 4 years at least.

Purchased two weeks ago, emptied the box , began assembly only to find the flav-r-wave is missing... kind of important. Now to see how Home Depot and OMC resolve the problem... may have to pack up and take it back..

Your basic bbq. Nothing fancy here and even with the tank on it the unit is light in weight. If in a windy location expect that it will tip over if not secured or weighed down. I knew that I was buying an entry level unit but once assembled I found that the igniter did not work at all. The battery provided was too weak, but even replacing it with a new one failed to get it to work. Also the upper casting did not properly overlap the bottom casting so I have to go past a grab point to close the lid... every time. It may wear down in time, or it might break the handle with the added force that is needed to close it. One thing for sure is that with the noise it makes the neighbours will know for sure when I am using it! How can you cast it such that it doesn't fit properly... honestly?
