Bought this a few months ago on a previous woot, mostly so I wouldn’t have to heat up my air conditioned house in the summer when cooking meals. Putting it together was a bit of a challenge, but nothing someone who buys IKEA furniture couldn’t handle. It has served me well so far, and I like not having to worry about gas or charcoal. My main complaints are that it looses a lot of heat when you open the lid to flip things over, and that some areas on the grill surface get hotter than others. Bottom line is a thumbs up, especially at this price since I paid $20 more.
I’ve had this grill, bought new, for four years. I love it. Small footprint, never runs out of propane! Great for spur of the moment grilling. I did have to replace the heating element once. Char-Broil has great customer service and the part arrived very quickly. I’d suggest buying the matching cover.
It’s electric, that’s why it never runs out of propane…
I had one of these grills. It took forever (like 20 minutes) to get to maximum temperature, and that temperature dropped rapidly once you opened the lid.
Forget properly searing a steak on this thing… you’ll end up with just one side that’s cooked properly.
