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.
This was the worst thing to put together and once we got down to putting the handles on, the wrong ones were in the box. Contacted Sears multiple times and now that I've had it for 6 months, they are only offering a small refund but still no handles. This was a fathers day present and I will never give Sears business again!
Love this grill easy to use and looks beautiful! Gave a 3 because Sears made it incredibly difficult to get. Easy to buy online however it said it would arrive to the store Oct 3 but the store did not have it. Both online Sears and store were pointing fingers at each other. It was a mess. Finally the Ft Myers manager said they had 1 that was put together and allowed us to pick-up that one. Would NOTrecommend Sears.
We LOVE this grill! Assembly took a while, but the instructions were easy to follow. The side burner is a great feature!
