Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mattybumpo Owned 2 months, grill grates warping & coating deteriorating
Purchased this grill in April 2014. Takes about an hour to set up, not "from box to grilling in a matter of minutes" as the site states. I grill about 3 or 4 times a week for 2 to 5 people, nothing overly complex (mostly burgers/dogs/chicken). By early June 2014 the grilling grates are warping and the coating is breaking off. Grill grates are not wire as advertised- some kind of stamped aluminum is my guess. Attached shelf bends under a small amount of weight and has to be bent back periodically. The entire grill bends and flexes when you move it. Sparker never worked. I keep it covered (only uncovered when cooking and during cool down), however there is surface rust showing up on the supports and shelving. It does heat up quickly, has great heat range, and can put a good char on your food, however judging by what it looks like today I will only get one season out of it, two at the most. My last Char-Broil I owned for 16 years and never had to replace the grates, and only had to purchase burners twice.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chimneymaster Great buy
I have owned and used many grills and smokers of all fuel types. From 4k tow behind trailer smokers to $35 single burner camp site propane grills. That said:
This grill is exactly what I expected. Easy to assemble, looks decent, and like most propane grills it is quick and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aahzmandius Very nice mid-sized gas grill
I was able to assemble the grill in about one hour by myself with no assistance. I would recommend having a helper to more easily align the basin and lid, which were a touch unwieldy while assembling solo. The grill has been used a few times since assembly, where it performed beautifully, heating up quickly as all gas grills do. Clean-up was a breeze, just pull the grate or grates you used to cook on, and the drip guard for the burners you cooked over, use a mild abrasive if any to scrub (I really only needed a sponge with a scrubby back after cooking steaks), and replace for next time.

Not happy at all grates rusted within the first few months , paint chipping off under the hood on to the food . Replacements are way to expensive :(

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Noel Perfect Basic Grill with all the right features.
We wanted to buy a basic small grill since we donât have a ton of space. This grill is perfect for what we need. It lights easy, cooks everything even, and the temperature gauge seems to be very accurate. It is pretty solid in construction and easy to put together. If you are looking for a basic inexpensive grill, then this is the one. If you are looking for top of the line fancy smancy then you will need to spend 450.00 plus.
