Features


TRU-Infrared cooking system

Cook your food evenly and with less flare-ups, using infrared technology. You'll get juicier food every time.

Grease tray

The grease tray captures drips for easy clean-up. Custom-fit liner pans (sold separately) can be used to capture drips for gravy and other sauces.

Surefire electronic igniter

An electronic igniter at each burner means you can light all your burners with the simple push of a button. No matches needed.

Swing-A-Way warming rack

This warming rack swings back when you open the grill lid, so you can easily reach the food on your cooking grates.

Lid-mounted temperature gauge

Keep track of pre-heat status and monitor the inside temperature of your grill.

Porcelain Coated Grates

The durable porcelain coating on these cooking grates make them rust-resistant and easy-to-clean.

Top-ported burner

Stainless steel burners with top ports can be easily adjusted to deliver high heat or very low temperatures.

Locking casters

Two of the grill's four wheels are locking casters, making the grill easy to move and stable once you've locked the wheels in place.

    Great Grill, but requires some care

    We bought this grill on sale at Best Buy about a month ago. In regards to grilling and cooking meat, this grill does a fantastic job. I think the Infrared technology definitely helps to keep chicken, beef or whatever you are cooking more moist and juicy. It does take a little bit of adjusting to how quickly the grill heats up, but if you are a seasoned grill master or even an amateur like me, this shouldn't be too hard. Caring for the grill is a bit more difficult. You need to take care to season the grates before using it and it's recommended that you do so after cleaning as well. In my experience, you should not use metal wire brushes even if they say they are safe for porcelain. Even though it does not do as good of a job, a nylon brush should be used. Overall, love the grill, but it does require some specific care.

    First thing, why would you put everything you need for initial assembly on the bottom of the box? Second the instructions are vague and just suck. Luckily I'm a model builder and am used to poor instruction diagrams with no words or decent illustrations. Third, WHAT IDIOT ATTACHES A GLUED ON DECAL TO THE GRILL HOOD! AND ANOTHER TO THE SIDE TRAY! Here's your sign stupid! The headaches better be worth it! Beside the initial stupidity, the grill assembles well, is sturdy, and looks decent for the price. I have yet to fire the thing up. At least the grease cup isn't directly above the propane bottle!

    So far so good. The product is living up my expectation. If cooks in about half the time as my old Char Broil grill and the meat is much juicier. Of course you have to be careful not to over cook. One tip for a new user, be sure to thoroughly cover the grill (both sides) with canola oil before using and be sure to let the oil burn off before cooking. This really helps the clean up. After the grill cools I remove and clean the grill grates after each use and have not had any problem with build-up or the grill openings becoming clogged. This maintenance takes maybe five minutes and it keeps the grates clear of build-up.

    This is the second charbroiled infrared series grI'll I have owned. My 1st was one of the orignals, had it 6 years maybe 7. 3 burner with side burner. Always cooked great food. The new grill is smaller than my 1st, but not an issue. It's perfect for two people,this verison burners se more adjustable than last one. Cooks really well, the only draw back is no side burner.

    Biggest little barbecue

    Very happy with this BBQ. I was so tired of an over sized grill in the yard, along with the hard to keep stainless steel. I purchased this much smaller grill in black with stainless trim. The look is very sharp and perfect size for my husband and myself. Also, plenty of grilling space when the kids come to visit. The electric start works great, and makes lighting a snap.

    Bought this item online at a great price on eBay and received it within a week. My husband assembled it fairly easily in about an hour. We've used it 3 times and really like the way food cooks evenly without flare-ups. It has casters on the bottom and moves around easily. It looks good with the propane can hidden behind the door. So far we're very pleased with this grill.

    Grill gets very hot on the cooking surface so if you are not careful it is easy to burn or over cook your food. I usually heat it up and then turn the side I am using way down but this works only with 4 burgers or 2 steaks. So far no issues with grate clogging but I am careful to burn off the residue after using.

    The grill has lived up to its advertisements. The grill cooks meats much quicker than the old style grill and the meat is must juicier and does not have a tendency to taste drier out.. It is somewhat harder to clean than the old type grill but if you follow Char Broils suggestions you will not have any problems.
