Very pleasantly surprised at the evenness of heat this grill produces. I have a high end grill at my other home and this cooks as well.
This so called stainless steel grill is JUNK! I have owned it for just over 1 year. The "stainless steel" heated are almost rusted through. The "stainless" is peeling off of the cabinet leaving rust underneath. The igniter quit 4 months ago. (Yes I changed the battery.....still no joy). Bottom line this grill is not worth the money spent. DO NOT BUY THIS CHEAPLY MADE CHINESE PIECE OF JUNK!!!!!! I gave it a 1 star rating because a 0 star rating is not allowed!
So far, so good. I purchased this grill from the sears store, not online. The first one I purchased ?on line? I had returned.
This one was an older model and the Stainless Steel was much thicker just like the ?elite model.
?The new ones are thin and feel flimsy. I suggest finding the older models, they are built much better. ?Either way they are all good value and work well.
