Bought this grill today, assembled it and started grilling a couple hours later. Impressed by the quality construction of the grill. The grill burned clean and even, and the steak and chicken turned out great. Love the option of the side burner steamer. A smart option and definitely a selling point for us. I would recommend this grill without hesitation. The only downside for some might be the lack of front doors for storage, but that wasn't an issue for me. There is wide access in the back, and I don't store items inside the grill anyway. For the price and quality, a great purchase.
Very disappointed in stainless steel quality since rust spots started showing up after only two weeks. Grill was kept under covered patio uncovered and yes some driving rains reached the grill but still....only two weeks?? Grill cooked just fine and the steamer is really a cumbersome and messy gadget. More of a gimmick - easier to throw a pot on the side burner instead. Sears is accepting the return so five stars as usual for Sears but have to rate the grill only two stars.
We just bought this grill a couple of weeks ago. So far so good. I can't wait to experiment more with the steamer. It is good heavy quality. I am however very disappointed in the store. The same day we bought it in the store we found it online for $30.00 cheaper. The store refused to honor the online price.
We converted this to a natual gas grill very easily with the kenmore converter kit. We are very happy with how it cooks the meat and the steamer is a great add-on feature.
We have owned this grill for two weeks and used it for a total of four times for grilling and frying. My impression so far is that the grill works very nicely. I have not had any issues with the connectors, lines leading to any flare ups. The temperature goes upto 550 degree celsius within 10 minutes. The fish steaks come out perfect so does the chicken and vegetables. The knobs however are flimsy. But then again, for under 250 dollars, what can one expect. Assembly was fairly simple. I know the base of the firebox will eventually give in but I would like to think that it will last a couple of years before melting. The steamer attachment is what sold us. The attachments are very solidly built and fit very snugly onto the burner. I do not see any reason why the steam function will not work. Also, you will need the 65 inch grill cover for this grill as the regular 56 inch cover is going to be almost two inches short for this particular model.
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. We haven't used it yet, but it's a great find at a great price. It's the only grill with a steamer I could find. The lady that helped me was wonderful and really made the buying process easy and fun. Wonderful service at the Hulen Sears. He's gonna love this gift.
Have a summer home in Maine and needed to replace the gas grill. Was looking for something with four burners and a side burner for vegetables. Did not want to spend big $ but wanted something functional and with good appearance. This grill fits the bill. Was on sale and combined with shop your way surprise bonus points I was able to get the grill and cover for an incredible price. In addition shop your way rewards on the grill purchase was enough to get a 103 pc socket set for free.
