Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Nice but disappointed after 6 months
Torn about decision to recommend to others or not
Grill is 6 months old, has cooked great food BUT
- insulation around top of grill and on top already falling apart so there is NO longer a seal to keep the heat in
They need to fix these issues

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hdg Excellent, versatile Kamado at a reasonable price
This is a great Kamado grill and is an excellent value when you consider the cost of similar grills in the market - we are talking 30-50% less for this Vision grill. The grill is very versatile - I just seared steaks direct at 600 degrees, changed to indirect and lowered temp to 350 to finish the steaks, then went back to direct and grilled veggies. Pizzas are outstanding on this thing. Low and slow ribs or chicken have turned out great - and require virtually no tending unlike with my old charcoal smoker where I had to constantly check and add charcoal and try to maintain the proper temp. Once you get the hang of the temperature control, you can cook pretty much anything on this grill. Like some others have noted, I did have some air leakage around the ash drawer and lighter port. Contacted Vision Grills customer service and they fixed me up right away with some silicone - although this is easily obtained just about anywhere. Glad I didn't let the reviews on the air leaks scare me away from this grill...it is outstanding. It would be great, of course, if the thing arrived without the leaks, but in the end, I'm so happy with the grill and the price I paid versus the competition that I got over it quickly.

After reading all the horror stories about broken fire bowls ,chips in the glaze, and missing parts, I finally got my Vision Pro S-Series grill. I am happy to say none of these problems showed up when my Kamado arrived. Not one blemish and the assembly was easy and problem free and solid tight fitting hardware.
I think that most of the bad reviews came from two or more years ago. I don't see hardly any from 2015-2016. I think Vision took those negative reviews from 3 or more years ago to heart and tried to strive to improve quality and packaging for delivery. everything was protected with thick styrofoam and extremely heavy cardboard, plus glaze touch-up kit was included with grill instead of having to call for it if needed. Very happy with quality.

The grill was easy to assembly, but you will need a friend to lift the grill to the base. Cooking is very easy and the flavor is excellent.
I would prefer is for the price, they should include at least the lava stone.
So far we are turning on the grill twice a week.

At 227 lbs it's Heavy. The Kamado Vision has some features some of the more eggpensive models don't. In 2 months I've cooked on the Vision 40 times. Meatloaf, Wings, Pork Roasts, Beef Roasts, Pizza, Chicken, Italian Sausages you name it. It's a Grill, Smoker and High Temp Oven. After a few cooks temperature control is easy. You'll need a Plate Setter for Non-direct cooking and a Pizza stone.
I gave the Quality a 4 because the Top Vent has a Plastic Tab that will break. I know Kamado will warranty it but come on guys, it's on a Cast Iron Vent. Aluminum or Steel would have been the better choice.
If you are thinking about an "egg" cooker, this is it. It uses much less Charcoal that I expected.

Bought the new Vision grill, un-assembled with the hope of getting it home without damage and was successful. There was a small chip on the back of the ceramic top, but vision included a small bottle of glaze to repair any small imperfections such as this and was no problem to fix. Assembly was very simple, all the tools required were supplied with the grill. everything went together perfectly. Grill is very handsome and sturdy, love the slot for the charcoal (lump wood Only) starter. have used the grill only twice so far, once for steaks and once for ribs. food came out great, the grill is easy to start and temp control is very good with just a little practice. Would also note that the cover that is included with the grill is good quality and fits great, thought this was a nice extra to be included since very few grills come with a cover. So far this grill has done everything advertised and is a super deal for the price. Would highly recommend this product.

I've been very happy with my purchase. Not sure yet on durability and we will see how long parts and pieces hold up .
