Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by new purchase I just bought this electric bbq, I have not used it yet. The reason for the purchase was due to not being allowed to use propane,gas, or charcoal bbq's in the condominium. I'm skeptical because I've always believed to get that authentic bbq taste your going to need a propane or charcoal bbq. I'm not sure what to expect but needless to say the reviews, and ratings on this model, based on performance, quality, ect were fairly high. A normal propane bbq isn't an option so this is the next best thing. I will say for the price, features, and my purposes so far I give it top marks. I doubt I'll be disappointed in the results.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good for an Apartment Nice size grill for a small family. But my electric version has big drawbacks, it's never gotten up past 525 degrees for one and as soon as you open it the heat drops close to 100 degrees or better. Even when you open the lid for a very short time. It takes way to long to regain the lost heat and the unit isn't really deep enough to use a beer can stand. It does however make foods juicer and way better tasting. Chicken, steaks and burgers are good but forget about searing both sides of your meats. I do like the way it cooks to a point, just wish Char-Broil would workout the loss of heat issues and deepen it a bit. June 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fits nicely on our deck I love the easy clean up...have had it only a few weeks..cant wait to use it again. It's nice and roomy for my grilling. June 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Little Grill I purchased this grill for my wife because of it's simplicity and good looks. She love it. It does all what we want it do. Chicken, seafood, steaks, and veggies all are done to perfection. There also the convenience of not have to load charcoal or gas to cook, just turn the knob and you are ready. Again its a great little grill. June 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Electric is simple, easy and clean over charcoal. Had an electric CharBroil for 7 years that worked flawlessly. It needed the aluminum inner liner replaced and the new model doesn't have one. That was the reason for buying the new model. Tip: For proper operation make sure the grill fits over the element in front for the cover to fit properly. June 10, 2014
