This grill has many great features; lighted knobs for when you are grilling after sunset and the cabinet underneath has a back so that it is not open to the elements and is far more attractive to look at and less attractive to animals are just two of them. I never used my side burners, and always wished for more counter space around my grill and this also solved that problem with side tables on each side that can be folded down for storage or when not in use. We purchased the natural gas converter and it was very easy to transfer into a natural gas grill in lieu of being dependent upon a propane tank. My husband states that the cooking surface is quite ample, and food items easily slide off the grilling surfaces.
Bought this grill in April 2012. It is now March 2014 and the entire bottom of the grill has rusted out into nothing but rusty corn flakes. Bought the grill thinking with stainless steel burners, grates, sides, lid, etc that it was well worth the $400. Loved the grill, but a $50 grill will last longer than this one did. Now I have to convince my wife that spending more on a new grill is a good idea. Not sure I want to be the guy grilling out back with a George Foreman on his deck drinking a cold one. P.S. - Good news is that the grates, lid, and the burners are solid as ever, too bad there is nothing left to connect them too. .
