    Great gas grill, despite bad reviews.

    Customer review by NunyaBiznass

    5.0 stars by NunyaBiznass

    I read all the reviews on Wal-Mart's website before purchasing this grill. It was easy and straight forward to put together, extremely large instruction manual with clear and concise pictures, all the parts are in individual pouches in a bubble pack and clearly marked, these correspond to each step in the assembly. As for reviewers complaining of "Low Heat", the only thing I can figure is that those reviewers did not understand which symbol meant "HIGH HEAT" and which one meant "LOW HEAT" or the propane tank they were using with it was nearly empty. After 5 minutes on high my grill was hot enough to cook on. The only con I can say about this is that some of the wing-nuts that come with it seem to slip when screwed all the way on, to remedy that I just went to my local hardware store and replaced them for under a buck. Do not let the bad reviews fool you, this is a solid grill for the money and I would recommend it to anyone that was looking for an inexpensive gas grill with middle range BTUs (50-100% more than comparable grills) and lots of grilling and warming real estate (most comparable grills that cost up to twice what this one did, do not come with a warming rack).

    Too bad - LOW Flame

    Customer review by DeeDeeG

    2.0 stars by DeeDeeG

    This was exactly what I was looking for, great price, and it was not hard to put together at all. They even give you the screwdirver & wrench & each set of hardware is divided into little compartments of the exact quantities of what your need, when you need them. My grill put together very nicely, not wobbly at all. (I did it while sitting on my couch watching TV!) And I was very pleased that it had an igniter! This feature was not mentioned on the box, so I bought butane lighters, but don't need them. BUT, after all that, I guess I'm hauling it ALL back to my local Wal-Mart, because the flame is waaay too low & cooking a steak last nite took way too long, and I ended up finishing it in my oven. Now I'm back to square one, trying to find a decent enough grill, that is small enough for apartment living, where we aren't really supposed to have gas grills, but they kind of look the other way. Too bad...

    You might be enticed by the price because it looks like a decent grill from the box picture. Don't be deceived! This grill is pure junk! After carefully opening the undamaged box I noticed that the grill cover was smashed and the paint was chipping off. It was obvious that it was boxed that way from the factory! Since the metal is so thin I was able to bend back the smashed metal. You have to assemble EVERYTHING even the company logo plate. Really?! The grill enclosure is very thin and cheap. The edges are also sharp so beware! The included hardware is also very cheap and the screw threads strip very easily if you tighten by hand with the included wing nuts! The grill cover handle stripped out completely during install. Awful! They claim the install should only take about 30 minutes. Yeah, right. You’d be luck to assemble this completely is less than one hour. After completing the assembly the lid doesn’t close evenly around the grill basin. The entire grill is also unstable. The grill surface is cheap and very, very thin. Okay, it’s time to fire her up! I turned on the gas and I pressed the igniter…click…nothing. Click….click…click…it won’t start. I got out my long-stem butane lighter and lit the gas. We have flame! I guess it’s a flame. The flame is so low (on high) that you’d be grilling for hours to get a burger cooked! What a piece of junk! I’m taking it back to Wal-Mart tomorrow! They should not even be selling this!

    • It takes the 1lb portable propane bottles sold at Walmart or many places with camping gear, the cost is around $5 for a 2-pk & they last quite a long time. If you grill often you might need 1 to 2 bottles per season.

    • No holder for the tank. The 1lb bottle just screws into a fitting on the lower left side of the panel that has the knobs. You might be looking at the drip pan holder.

    • The propane tank hangs from the regulator. The regulator threaded input is located to the left of the control knobs, on the underside. Hand tighten only. A copy of the manual can be downloaded from this webpage. Look above for PDF link. The manufacturer also has it available for download on their website.

    • Look under the handle/controls. The tank screws in under the left side as you stand in front of the unit.

    I purchased this grill yesterday and I like it already. Grilled my first steak in 3 years and it turned out great. Only bad thing is that I was afraid of the propane running out and didn't allow enough time for the grill to really heat up before putting the steak on. My question is this...would it be possible to purchase the hose that normally goes to a bigger gas grill and hook it to this grill so that I can use a large propane tank?
    by lissinkansas 5/27/2012
    • yes, my Walmart had the adapter hose for $15

    • There is an adaptor hose for connecting large propane tanks to products that use the small disposable propane tanks. Should cost $15-$20, Walmart sells them.
