Customer Reviews

Patio Bistro TRU-Infrared Electric Grill in Salsa Red is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot live without it A friend bought a furnished beach condo that came with an electric grill, which he didn't want, so he gave it to us, brand new. We tried it, loved it, used it every night for the next 6 months and basically killed it (note: do not leave cord plugged in on the balcony when you live in Florida, the points get wet/corroded & stop working). So we went right out and bought the larger, Bistro 240 model and continue to use it every night. We barbecue steaks, pork chops, chicken, fish, veggies...everything. Here's a tip: You can buy a metal (iron?) vented box at the hardware store, fill it with mesquite or other flavor wood chips, pour water over it and set it on top of the grill & once the chips heat up and start to smoke a little bit, add your meat/veg & cook. Makes everything taste mui delicioso!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy All of our life we have wrestled with propane grills. The wife and I got to talking about buying a electric grill, and decided on this one. We purchased this grill and could not have been happier. Why did we wait so long?! This grill is compact, it's light, and easy to put together. This unit fits on our deck which is small and we have a retractable awning over the deck... the heat does not affect our roll up awning while cooking under it. Keep in mind It's just the 2 of us and don't barbeque every day. Even with smaller propane grills, we could never barbeque on the deck...until now. I believe we hit a home run with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We purchased this BBQ about 6 months ago, upon recommendation of a friend. We were tired of having to refill the propane tanks, not knowing when they were about to empty and ruin our half cooked meals. Honestly, there is no difference in the taste of the food and the convenience is outstanding. I would highly recommend this electric BBQ hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so glad we got this! I bought this for my husband for Father's Day, and we've already used it several times. We had a kettle grill for decades, but hadn't used it for the last several years because there are just the two of us, and it was too much hassle to heat it up for the minimal amount of cooking we would have used it for, plus I was concerned about safety. This small electric grill is absolutely perfect for us. We've done brats, burgers, chicken legs and chicken breasts so far - and everything was perfect - and I am an electric grilling newbie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Hot! I bought this infrared patio bistro in red because they didn't have black at the store and I really wanted this grill. Well months later, I've been grilling everything on it to perfection! This grill is amazing! Just plug it in and watch the infrared action cook your food to perfection! The temperature gauge atop is extremely useful and th grease goes right into the drip tray below neatly. There's an abundance of space below to store utensils and other miscellaneous items. I highly recommend purchasing this grill because it is a sound investment that will last you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy BBQ I was a bit reluctant to try an Electric Grill so after purchasing my Char Broil I kept my Gas Grill on hand. I can now say good-bye to the Gas Grill, I love my Electric Char Broil. The only disadvantages that I can find, is it is a bit slower, especially in cold weather, (Below Freezing) saying that, if you plan ahead and turn it on for 15 minutes it performs great. One advantage of being a bit slower, is I have yet to burn anything. It also takes up way less room than my old gas grill and is easier to clean. Plus it is legal to use in many condo's where Gas and Charcoal grills are not allowed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs Well and Looks Good This grill performs better than I expect from an electric outdoor grill. It is slower than a gas grill but that should be expected for electric ... but it is not too slow. It cooks the meat through (I've only done 1.5" thick steaks and burgers) and with great presentation if directions are followed. If you are in an apartment and can't have gas or charcoal ... this is the Grill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fantastic grill! We have used this grill almost every day since we received it. We have cooked pork chops, burgers, fish, chicken and steak. All when done were moist and tasty. We have the electric version. This is a great grill for a small deck or apartment balcony.
