Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Electric Grill You can't compare electric grills to propane or charcoal grills. I guess you can but you will be disapointed. This is my second round of Charbroil Electric grills. We are empty nesters so a small grill fits our needs. I also like the conviniance of just plugging it in to my patio outlet. You have to know that electric grills don't maintain high heat. This is not like a gas grill that you can get to 450 degrees and maintain that temp. The key is to pre heat electric grills and let them get above the temp you are looking for. When you open the lid you have to be quick. You have to leave you food alone with the lid closed. October 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Model name suggests different technology used The name "TRU-INFRARED" would suggest that this grill uses INFRARED heat to heat the things you are cooking. I looked for this feature specifically as I have experience using this to surface "sear" my steaks before a long low cook. However upon removal and installation I did not find any INFRARED elements to install! This is nothing more then a standard electric grill with a better then average temperature control knob. It uses a standard "loop" style heating element that is circa 1970. April 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product improvement with simple fix. Pre-heat? The bottom is shaped like a giant funnel, creating a large volume updraft of cold air. Your similarly functioning kitchen oven has no such feature. By placing an inverted small stainless steel mixing bowl over the orifice, pre-heat times are cut from 25-30 minutes to less than 10 minutes ... 550 degrees is easy to reach & maintain. Excess liquid fat will continue to drain as originally designed. Might consider drilling holes for a small drain cover as a permanent fix. The top lid hinge is poorly designed ... have fix and will report. Basically, replace existing bolts with one with double nuts to provide a proper hinging mechanism April 15, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by it is what it is I'm pretty much a die-hard charcoal guy here. But, new apartment in city with wooden deck & city codes (no open flame) prohibit anything but electric grills in my situation. Did some research, this one sounded like it had best features so figured, "what the heck, a guy's gotta grill...". So far, so good; I've grilled some sausage, some burgers & some salmon. Again, it's NOT like cooking over the tried & true charcoal that I learned to grill over & love, but it works. Instruction manual says to pre-heat & they're not kidding. If this were "Try if Before you Buy it", I'd say, "Buy it (if you have to have electric)!" Cheers! July 17, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Electric Grill I needed to remove my gas grill due to Dallas ordnance relative to apartment usage. I purchase this grill, and tested it. Temperature reached over 550 degrees. While my gas grill also cooked via infrared, as this one does according to the information included. However, my gas grill had a pan between the burners and the grill. This one has no pan, and is over the heating element, albeit, still infrared. I wish it had a pan between the heating element, and grill to minimize potential smoke. I still like the grill. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A 'best buy' electric grill A reasonable amount of assembly is required. The cooking results are excellent. The grill easily achieves necessary cooking temperatures and gives perfect results for all sorts of meats and vegetables. The grill is well made and looks like it readily will provide five and more years of service outdoors. Cleaning and maintenance are easy with a brass brush taking care of the cooking grate. October 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I hoped for The Grill was really easy to assemble, and preformed as expected. December 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best grill to work with have bought two and unless camplng with no electricity will use this grill December 25, 2014
