Rated 5 out of 5Â by MattyBoyEZ Best Grill I've Ever Owned
I love to grill, however I have had concerns over carcinogens created by cooking over an open flame. I'm a cancer survivor and do what I can to reduce the risks. I've looked at infra-red as an option, but past models require constant cleaning or the tiny holes clog up and seriously affect performance.
This grill has two concave metal plates that sit on top of the flames and redistribute the heat and thereby eliminating carcinogens created by the open fire. My biggest worry was that this would make my food taste less grilled and more like it was cooked in a pan. It doesn't! I've had the grill for almost a month and cook on it almost every day.
It does sometimes get a little smokey as the fat drips and collects in these metal plates, but I've only had one flare-up so far. Because of that I can be a little less attentive to the grill without getting "crunchies" on the burgers as my kids call the sizzled parts!
I'd recommend taking off the grates and clearing out the residue from the plates every few uses. It cuts down on the smoke and takes all of 30 seconds.
Couldn't recommend this grill more!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Skin123 Best grill I've used!
This was more than I intended to pay for a grill, but I am so pleased with it!
Assembled at home over a couple of evenings, it has been in almost daily use over the last month. I have cooked meat, fish, shellfish and veggies - and even cookies for my boyfriend's birthday, when it was too hot to turn on the oven!
Meat stays noticeably juicy, temperatures are easy to maintain, including at low levels, and cleaning the grates is easy. The outer steel has discolored a little, but a spotless grill is garden ornament; this is a working tool, and I love it.
I've even bought a grill gazebo instead of a cover so I'll be able to use it all year round!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mike poor quality good cooking
Had ours for three years which we cook an average two times a week year round. We replaced the starter twice and finaly quit using it because it broke again. We had to replaced the trays which rusted out at our cost. The second year the frame work which holds the trays rusted out which we welded parts to keep it operating. The final death of the BBQ was the framework holding the burners rusted.

I have owned a charcoal grill, gas grill, and now this infraRED grill and i have to say i have never been happier! This is by far the best grill i have ever bought, i love it! My 16 yr old nephew and myself assembled it on a Saturday took roughly 3 hours, well worth it though. Next day we fired it up and OMG! was i impressed on how well the food came out. It does what it says, the food came out really juicy was not dry at all, the heat was nicely evenly through out. Love the stainless steel look. I would recommend this grill to everyone in my family. For my birthday (2) days after we assembled it, instead of going out to dinner i invited my family for some BBQ slabs of pork baby back ribs and corn cob. Was much better than going out to dinner. I was so impressed how i had no flame flair ups, and how well the ribs came out again they came out so juicy. If you are looking for a great grill for your patio i would say get this one. I have no complaints at all. Your food will come out Great!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by frankie7979 stainless steel that will rust
purchase may 2012, used 8 times, (covered grill, was not exposed to any bad weather). When I opened up grill this may 2013 it was covered in rust, attempted to clean myself, stainless cleaner, soft scrub, etc. contacted Char-Broil who requested photos of rust, after one week they replied stating that the rust is not "RUST-THRU" which means you cant poke your finger thru it yet. They offered me a BIO cleaner which they stated would not remove the rust to which I refused. This is a CHEAP LOW GRADE STAINLESS STEEL GRILL WHICH WILL RUST, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
