We LOVE this grill! We were unsure of trying an electric grill as we have always used charcoal or gas. We are very happy with the way the grill cooks the meat. It is also great as it takes up very little space, is attractive & we don't have to worry about running out of propane ever again!
Actually, less than POOR Rating. Purchased this item because of some of the reviews. DON'T BUY THIS BBQ Grill! UNLESS YOU WANT TO SWEAT YOUR MEAT. It takes all of fifteen minutes to pre-heat even in HOT weather. Then, as soon as you open the lid, all the heat is lost. You can't BBQ on this thing - nice radiant heat concept though - it just doesn't stay hot enough! You end up with sweated meat that does not resemble BBQ.
While it takes a while to warm up, this little beauty has done a great job for our grilling requirements. Easy controls. Easy cleaning. And small enough to fit most anywhere. We're very happy with our Bistro. We've had other Charbroil grills and were fairly certain this was a good buy.
We had an electric grill some time ago and were looking to buy another. So for the price we picked this one and my husband just loves it!! I think it will be much better than our charcoal grill for grilling. We did brats on it and they were very juicy.
It's like having an oven outside, we are pleased with it, because we are in a condo that doesn't allow gas grilling, it's the next best thing,
Love it so far....
