Char-Broil Two-Burner Gas Grill Review
This basic budget grill has an even smaller cooking surface than some of the charcoal grills we looked at, measuring just 300 square inches. Reports of flare-ups seem to dog this grill and reviewers warn of cheap construction.
Char-Broil Two-Burner Gas Grill reviews on Amazon and elsewhere suggest this grill is prone to flare-ups, and burned food seems to be the least of the potential consequences. One reviewer writes the grill flares up constantly and another Char-Broil Two-Burner Gas Grill review reports an incident where flames coming out the front melted the knobs and control panel. According to an expert at About.com, who reviewed a version exclusive to Sears, the only upside of this grill is the price. He warns consumers of flare-ups and says the grill isn't built to last more than a season or two. A user who posted a Char-Broil Two-Burner Gas Grill review on the site writes that the second time he or she used the grill, the two side shelves caught on fire and dripped melted plastic onto the deck.
The Char-Broil Two-Burner Gas Grill (starting at $80, Amazon) is a small, no-frills gas grill with 300 square inches of cooking area -- less than the charcoal grills on our list, which are smaller than most gas grills. The grill's 26,500 BTUs heat two burners with grates made of porcelain-coated steel wire, which doesn't do much to hold in heat.
While this grill has the most attractive price of any model on our list, it seems that consumers looking for quality must pay a bit more. Flames appear too frequently in Char-Broil Two-Burner Gas Grill reviews, and consumers and experts alike suggest this grill isn't built nearly so well as some of its budget brethren.
