      About the Manufacturer

      Char-Broil is one of the oldest and most respected outdoor cooking brands. Since 1948, more Americans have chosen Char-Broil gas barbecues than any other. Char-Broil continually creates innovative products that make outdoor cooking easy and affordable for the millions of people who barbecue every day. Char-Broil barbecues are sold in the United States and Canada, throughout Latin America, in Australia and now in Europe. Char-Broil made its entry into the European barbecue market with the acquisition of Dancook, a Danish barbecue company that manufactures high-quality charcoal barbecues, fireboxes and accessories. Dancook barbecues are available throughout Europe and in more than 25 countries worldwide. 2012 marked the beginning of the next generation of barbecues and outdoor cookers with the global launch of Char-Broil TRU-Infrared barbecues. A Char-Broil TRU-Infrared system, through a combination of heat output and burner construction, uses less fuel than other barbecues, cooks faster, and delivers juicier food than other gas barbecues. Airflow is strictly limited in TRU-Infrared barbecues which virtually eliminates flare-ups and produces very even heat – no hot or cold spots – at temperatures that range from slow roast to sear. The powerful system is extremely efficient, using a third less fuel than traditional gas barbecues, and making it easy to cook outdoors in the coldest winter climates.

        X-Mas gift for my boyfriend

        from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer

        My boyfriend is a year round griller, we live on the east cost ,MD. I got him this grill for a Christmas grift 2014 he absolutely loves it. Although communication with the company was not great the grill still arrived before Christmas. He put it together with ease and grilled on it the same night. needless to say he cooks on the grill at least 1x a week every week. while he does have two other grills gas and charcoal I find that he uses this one more often.

        Nice Patio Grill

        from Alcoa, TN – Verified Buyer

        Very economically priced and does an excellent job once you get used to the temperature controls. It is however, very hard to clean the porcelain surface. Must be very diligent soon after use or have quite a job on your hands. Overall very pleased with my unit. Bought a cover made for this model, so expect it will have quite a few years of service. Has held up well under heavy use so far.

        This one is the BEST

        from Plano, TX – Verified Buyer

        I never thought there could be an electric grill that worked as well as one that uses charcoal or flames but this one proved I was incorrect. We love it. Juicy meat, add wood chips for barbecue flavor and it's a cinch to clean up! Nothing to refill or dispose of! LOVE.IT.

        Condo BBQing

        from Belleair, FL – Verified Buyer

        This works great! We live in a condo so gas is out of the question. This grills really great. The grate is fairly easy to clean, but I do use cooking spray to help with that. We have no complaints. I put it together so it wasn't difficult - just follow the directions!

        Love this Grill!

        from Bellevue, WA – Verified Buyer

        This grill is perfect for our small Condo Patio. It doesn't take up alot of room, looks great and best of all the true infrared cooking element cooks the food without drying it out and without grease flareups! It heats up to cooking temperature quickly and the porcelain covered grill top is easy to keep clean.

        Great little patio grill

        from Alcoa, TN

        Overall good quality cooking with meats coming out very tender. Grid a bit difficult to clean, but doable, Controlling temperature takes a bit of practice, but after a few uses, got the hang of it. Overall good value for the money. Great for a small space and light entertaining.

        Great electric grill

        from Apache Junction, AZ – Verified Buyer

        This was the second one I put together so it was pretty easy to put together. My first use was good. Next time will try to use wood chips for a more "grill" flavor. Good value, solid grill, easy clean-up grill top

        Little Wizard!

        from Grover Beach, CA – Verified Buyer

        Used one of these in Lake Tahoe at our resort. Saw them on every patio and used ours three nights. Grilled the juiciest and best burgers and steaks ever! I recommend it to all who find grilling daunting. This fella makes it easy.

        Great product

        from Viera, FL – Verified Buyer

        Great little grill. Perfect for me. I was able to put it together by myself. I was unsure if I would like the electric version but I love it. I have much more control of the temperature. I recommend this grill. I should have bought one sooner.

        Great grill

        from Branson, MO – Verified Buyer

        We live where gas or charcoal grills are forbidden. This gas grill has exceeded my expectations. We love the grill and it is easy to use and does a great job.
