Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 161 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great little grill except I really like this grill except: The heat: (1.) If you Open the hood the temp drops considerably. (2.) We had a previous model from Char-Broil that had another shelf below the burner with Bricketts on it. That really helped with heat loss. I was wondering if there was a something like that I could get for this model. (3.) You really shouldn't use an extension cord with this grill because a longer cord will affect the amperage which affects the maximum temp. (4.) You should plug this or any electric grill into a circuit that doesn't have much else plugged into it or you will trip circuit breakers. I have a dedicated circuit that only goes to the area of the grill. March 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased this product 11 months ago. The led red light indicating the grill is on is very had to see . The grill after 9 months didn't reach max temperature , slowly reaching lower temps. The one day it would not turn off when in the off position February 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this as our backup grill I use this on my enclosed patio for my wife and I. I have a 5-burner gas outside for larger foods when we have company. IT WORKS GREAT! You do need to learn infrared cooking, because it is different than propane. I have never overdone a steak, or ruined a meal. It takes up very little space and is very easy to operate and clean. After 2 years I would not be without this great appliance. Everyone remarks on its looks and style. January 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This electric grill is a great size to have. This is a really great grill to have if you don't need a large propane gas grill. We have this on our deck and it is perfect. It is bigger than our last electric grill. I really like the warming shelf above. This came in handy when I grilled chicken on the grate, and the veggies were done. To keep them warm while the chicken finished, I just put the veggies on the skewer on the top and they stayed warm. I would recommend spraying the grate with non-stick cooking spray as suggested in the directions. I forgot to beforehand and the chicken did stick a bit at first. It also would have made it easier to clean afterwards. Definetly enjoying this electric, easy to use grill. May 25, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great My apartment won't allow for charcoal or gas grills so I did a little research and purchased this grill. I put it together in a little less than 2 hours while watching college football. I had no problem with it, within 15 minutes it was completely heated up and cooked my steaks perfectly. As it says in the instructions keep the lid closed, after the first opening it lost around 100 degrees and after opening several more times stayed around 500. Leave on to help burn off the excess and then use a brass not steel brush to clean the grill. Besides that it gives directions on adding wood chips. So far this grill has worked out perfect for me since I am unable to use gas or coal. September 6, 2010
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by If you can use a gas grill, you might pass on this one I bought this with high expectations based on the reviews. I found however that there are a few things that make this less than stellar. There is only a single circular electric coil that surrounds the bowl. It isn't alot of heat to cook such a large area. The coil is not fastened down on the part that doesn't come out of the grill placing excess wear on the coil mount. Also, to clean this, means you will have to work around the coil that is not attached very well and risk bending or breaking it off. The main complaint is that there isn't much heat for the decent sized grilling surface. If you open the cover, it takes a long time to recover. And you need to warm it up for about 20 minutes and leave it on for another 20 minutes to burn off some of the grease. I love the round design, space saving, and cool looking. But as far as effectiveness as a griller, I'd say this needs some big improvements to the amount of coil (heat) and the way the coil is simply dangling inside the bowl. This uses alot of electricity, similar to a hair dryer running at full it won't be friendly on the electric bill either. April 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good grill, best when using iron grill I have a BGE which I use for most grilling, However, when my wife wants to cook she wants something simple. This grill fits the bill. We also order the iron grill accessory and use it all the time. Because it is heavy it holds the heat and is perfect for pork chops and chicken. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Even Better than Expected I ordered this grill for my Son-in-Laws return from Afghanistan. It is much more sturdy than my old electric charbroil. It looks good and it cooks good. Have grilled Steak and chicken breast so far this week and both were excellent. Also; it is easy to clean. So far; I am rating this product excellent.
