I love to grill, however I have had concerns over carcinogens created by cooking over an open flame. I'm a cancer survivor and do what I can to reduce the risks. I've looked at infra-red as an option, but past models require constant cleaning or the tiny holes clog up and seriously affect performance.
This grill has two concave metal plates that sit on top of the flames and redistribute the heat and thereby eliminating carcinogens created by the open fire. My biggest worry was that this would make my food taste less grilled and more like it was cooked in a pan. It doesn't! I've had the grill for almost a month and cook on it almost every day.
It does sometimes get a little smokey as the fat drips and collects in these metal plates, but I've only had one flare-up so far. Because of that I can be a little less attentive to the grill without getting "crunchies" on the burgers as my kids call the sizzled parts!
I'd recommend taking off the grates and clearing out the residue from the plates every few uses. It cuts down on the smoke and takes all of 30 seconds.
Couldn't recommend this grill more!

We shopped for months for a new grill and when we found this one at home depot it was easy to know this was the right one for us.

I have owned a charcoal grill, gas grill, and now this infraRED grill and i have to say i have never been happier! This is by far the best grill i have ever bought, i love it! My 16 yr old nephew and myself assembled it on a Saturday took roughly 3 hours, well worth it though. Next day we fired it up and OMG! was i impressed on how well the food came out. It does what it says, the food came out really juicy was not dry at all, the heat was nicely evenly through out. Love the stainless steel look. I would recommend this grill to everyone in my family. For my birthday (2) days after we assembled it, instead of going out to dinner i invited my family for some BBQ slabs of pork baby back ribs and corn cob. Was much better than going out to dinner. I was so impressed how i had no flame flair ups, and how well the ribs came out again they came out so juicy. If you are looking for a great grill for your patio i would say get this one. I have no complaints at all. Your food will come out Great!

I recently purchased the four-burner model. We cook outside 3-4 times per week. I have had this grill for two weeks and have cooked many different meats on it. I prefer to cook larger cuts and poultry slow and at lower temperatures to preserve moisture and tenderness. The indirect heat feature of this grill and the fact that the dripping fat does not touch flame allow absolute control of the temperature. Only by human error will this grill flare up. Do not, let that indirect heat thing fool you. This baby gets hot quickly. Steaks, burgers, and dogs all end up with that "char-stripe."
The key to success with this grill is keeping it clean. It needs better hygiene practices than your normal direct heat grill. Although it has a self-cleaning feature, I hate wasting the gas and the effects of the high heat. The pans and porcelain covered grates are easy enough to remove and just as easy to clean. I simply hose them off and wash with soap and water. The grates fit nicely in the dishwasher.
The side burner is as good as one would want. Burner is not quite up for a 3-gallon deep fryer, but handles bacon, eggs, hot cakes, skillet beans, pan fried steaks and light frying with ease.
Only downside is that there is no place to add a few wood chips for some smoke flavor. I'm not a big fan of heavy smoke anyway, so that's not an issue.
I had mine delivered to my home in a big box and assembled it during a Monday night football game. Cooked a bacon sandwich for midnight snack. Picture instructions are adequate for the novice and few tools are required. You know that coffee can in your workshop with the extra screws?? Have it handy as well. You will need a few. Hey, I saved fifty bucks and it was a boring game.
Just get the grill and don't scrimp. Get the four-burner. Your friends will love you for it.

Had ours for three years which we cook an average two times a week year round. We replaced the starter twice and finaly quit using it because it broke again. We had to replaced the trays which rusted out at our cost. The second year the frame work which holds the trays rusted out which we welded parts to keep it operating. The final death of the BBQ was the framework holding the burners rusted.
