Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 Review
Although it's still well within the Cheapism niche, the Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 (starting at $155, Amazon) fell off our list only because it's about 50% more expensive than our pick for good cheap gas grill.
This is a very basic model, but don't be fooled: In Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 reviews, users are enthusiastic about its quality. Even the price seems right to a backyard cook, whose Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 review on Buzzillions comments appreciatively on the grill's user-friendly assembly. A Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 review on About.com points to the durable cast aluminum on the outside and describes this model as well-built, adding that it should last longer than other cheap grills. A Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 review on Buzzillions notes that this well-priced BBQ grill is sturdy and cooks as well as more expensive gas grills. On Amazon, a consumer says in a Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 review that it cooks food perfectly and has been problem-free during months of steady use (even through the winter).
With 30,000 BTUs and 260 square inches of primary cooking surface, the Broil-Mate 13024 exceeds the About.com recommendation of about 100 BTUs per square inch of cooking surface.
Its total cooking surface measures 420 square inches including a warming rack. It boasts heavy-duty porcelain-coated grates inside and two separately controlled stainless-steel burners.
All this means it gets hot fast, holds the heat well, and offers plenty of heat control. Side shelves and utensil hooks all make it a user-friendly choice.
The Broil-Mate Gas Grill 13024 is a solid, simple, cheap gas grill. We like how sturdy it is for the price and the heat output for its size, as well as the heavy porcelain-coated steel grates. While it doesn't have a ton of frills, the little extras make it convenient to use. One drawback is it's a little harder to find than the grills we picked.
