After looking at BBQ's in the $400 price range I decided on this model. I'm very pleased with all aspects of it. The quality of the steel is great, putting it together was simple (about 2 hours). The one thing I liked a lot is that the stand is fully enclosed unlike other BBQs in this price range. Of course the most important aspect is cooking. I grilled some steaks the first night I had this BBQ and the unit cooks evenly with plenty of heat, the searing station worked perfectly as well. I also like the fold down table on the side. I was pleased at the buying experience too. I used the pickup in store option online and was shocked that only after 10 mins I got an email it was ready. The store also helped me break down the box as it was too big to fit in my car. No buyers remorse here at all!
heating and cooking very efficiently
Bottom rust out of burner box and not sold separately.
Cost is 198.00 because you have to replace the entire burner box.
Great Grill. Got it on sale for around $230. Putting together took some time but I am not a handy man. Very happy with my grill and very friendly associates who helped me purchase it. Looked all over at other big box retailers and Sears had the best quality and best prices.
It is really premature to write the review as I have not used the grill yet, but I know I am going to love the features. The two things I love about the design is the one shelf folds down out of the way and the other is that it has a "searing" section - I am looking forward to grilling a steak on it.
My husband and I bought this grill as part of an early wedding gift for our son and his wife-to-be. We were attracted to it because of the quality of Kenmore products and the beautiful design of the grill. It has a two-tiered space to grill plenty of hamburgers, hotdogs, and steaks! The searing element will be an added plus! While the grill has yet to be used (waiting for weather to break and spring to be here!), it is a beauty which our son and his wife-to-be can't wait to cook on!!
Purchased this grill two years ago and now the burners are rusted out. Contacted Sears and Kemore and was told it would be $196 for the three main burners. They said they could send a tech out for $96 to check them out. I asked about the warranty and got the run around and been on the phone for an hour. I finally was told that Kenmore has merged with Whirlpool and was given Whirlpools phone number so I will give that a try. Very disappointed with Sears and their so called warranty and customer service. I would not buy this grill or any Kenmore grill so be cautious when making a purchase a grill from Sears. If your thinking this is made up, just call 1-800-my-home and ask them how much to replace the burners.
Assembly took me 2 hours...no issues. Bought this grill for quick grilling when I'm not in the mood to use charcoal or large open gas grill. Main grill heats up super fast and hot. Side burner works great. But best part is having split grills for hot meat searing on one side AND low and slow on the other. Plenty of space to grill for family of 5. Would give 5 stars if metal was thicker
My husband loves this grill! The searer allows him to make steaks just the way he wants, and the side burner is great for veggies. Still learning about it but absolutely love it.
Easy to start, sleek, even cooking, lots of room. Great purchase!
It has nice looks but as far as cooking, food sticks to the grill no matter what I do, pam, oily sauces etc. Truly disappointed in this product. Can not clean under the tray. Also numerous issues lighting it. One it lights next time it does not.
My sister purchased the same one and has the same issues.
I hope Sears takes it back.
I LOVE THIS GRILL SO MUCH. I HAVE ONLY HAD IT ABOUT THREE WEEKS ,
great buy then even better as item was on sale and no question asked refund for the difference. cooks even and heats up fast.
Ordered on-line, used promo code found on another site and saved $50 over in-store price. Setup was relatively easy, completed by myself in about 90 minutes. Except one of the ignition wires was broke at the control ****. No way I was going pack it up or wait for a service call, so had to fix myself. Being somewhat handy, was able to fix with some effort (and a few cuss words). The searing station works great (larger than one other grills I looked at), and really like it being separate from the main burners. Side burner also works very well. I tend to agree with the other reviewer, the cooking grates could be closer together. Overall, very happy with grill and can't beat the price when comparing to others at HD, *****, etc.
my family loved this grill. we use it every wknd. and it is just perfect for a lot of people or just a few of us with the sp;it lid.
Really nice grill at a reasonable price. The searing burner cooks steaks great. 2-3 minutes a side and you have a great tasting steak. Toss it on the other half for a couple more and it is then medium rare. Only issue I see is the clean up after several uses to clean the driping under the burners in the drip pan. Where are the lava rocks?
We have only had a chance to grill a couple of times since purchasing our new grill. So far we are very happy with it!
I can't wait for this grill to rust out or for someone to steel it! I hate it!
The grill itself is too far apart and food falls through. Everything sticks to it. You can't just pull out the under tray to clean it! It is a major event to clean the bottom of the grill, and it does not heat evenly! I have had many a grill and by far this one sucks! Never again!
