A lot of parts, so it's a little over-whellming when you first open the box. That feeling is compounded by the terrible instruction manual where I spent way too much time trying to decipher the parts and pictures displayed with a comprehensive word-discription lacking. Sadly, if all the parts were labeled (a few are), assembly would be a breeze. Great gas grill for the price but the assembly process is overly-time consuming, and it needn't be with a better user manual. For some, spending the $20 to have Sears assemble it could be a bargain!
The construction of the grill is very cheap. I actually paid a Sears Hometown store a fee to assemble the grill and its not square. I honestly don't think its possible with the flimsy materials. Second day I had the grill, a wheel popped off. The bracket that holds the wheel is attached to the frame with 6 tiny tack weld. They don't hold! I went cheap and this is what I get for doing so.
