We purchaseed this grill in May of this year to replace our previous Char Broil grill because the burners had rusted and fallen through the bottom after only 2 years.  I was first drawn to this grill because it was the most attractive in the store for this price point, but after reading about all of the features we decided to give it a try.  Most grills for this price do not have so many burners, which I believe cuts down on cooking time when grilling large amounts of food.  We were also very impressed with how evenly the food cooked while it was new, although after using all season it is started to show signs of clogging which is probably normal.  The grill was assembled very quickly, with minimal complaining from my husband and without the need for specialty tools.  I cannot attest to how this grill will perform after sitting through the cold and snow because we have not yet had it through the winter, but it is not showing any signs of rusting through the very wet summer we've had.  The only complaint that I do have about this grill would be the "warming rack", which seems to fall off much too easily.

Came out of the box leaking gas. Customer service was unapologetic and displayed a complete disregard for the potential safety issues and for wasting my time. So now I get to hassle with them for replacement parts, have no grill to use and then get to work on it myself if they do send me new gas lines. I guess I'm lucky the gas leak didn't catch fire. Don't buy Brinkman

Performance
These positive reviews online are obviously written by Brinkman sales reps. Laughable! Some even claim to increase family time.... Ha! what a rip. You're better off buying a better grill than Brinkman.

        The grill is quite big, but may be a little too big for many. Because of that, it is quite tough to store. A smaller grill with those features would have ideal and attract many more people towards it.
        Performance
        It heats up fast and cooks food evenly. You can cook many foods together due to its massive size.
        Versatility
        It is ideal for making steaks, but smaller foods like vegetables often gets lost in the grates.
        Ease of Clean
        normally, it is easy to clean, but if some food stuck in the grates, it becomes little tough to recover it.
        Durability
        I have this grill with me for sometime now, it seems pretty durable. Hopefully it should last for many years.
        Design
        the design is quite attractive, but it should look more prettier if the size have been little smaller.

        A big grill with big possibilities!

        By 

        from Wausau, WI

        Comments about Brinkmann 5-Burner Gas Grill:

        This grill is BIG, but possibly a little TOO big. We bought it for the features like the sear burner and side burner, but it's a little cumbersome to store because it's so large. The same features on a smaller scale might be a good idea.

        Performance
        The grill heats up quickly and evenly. The food seems to cook thoroughly but does not immediately burn like with some grills.

        Versatility
        The sear burner makes this grill great for steaks, but some smaller foods like vegetables can get lost in the grates.

        Ease of Use
        The grill is very easy to set up and to light. The tempature gauge seems pretty accurate.

        Ease of Cleaning
        Cleaning the grates is pretty easy, but getting anything that falls in requires dismantling the grill some.

        Durability
        I haven't really had the grill long enough to know how durable it is with being outside, but it seems pretty sturdy. It doesn't wobble or seem tippy at all.

        Design
        The grill looks very nice and has nice features like the side burner and sear burner.

        Gas Grill

        By

        Comments about Brinkmann 5-Burner Gas Grill:

        I liked the gas grill initially when we first got it. It took a while to set up initially, probably an hour. It's an easy first time grill for ones who aren't super advanced with grills and whatnot. I thought it was pretty basic and easy to work even for me a woman, with no real skills grilling.

        Performance
        I think the grill works overall pretty well, although like basically all grills there are a couple spots that are cooler and may affect the cooking of the meat a little. It just took some time to figure out where exactly was the best spot to place the meats so that they would be cooked evenly.

        Versatility
        It works pretty well for serving a small family conveniently. I would say we have been able to serve around four or five people at a time which makes it pretty ideal for quaint little family gatherings but probably not for big party bashes or large gatherings.

        Ease of Cleaning
        Everything must be washed before the grill gets too cool or it becomes very difficult to scrape the remainders off.

        Solid grill, but occassionally will not burn hot enough.

        Comments about Brinkmann 5-Burner Gas Grill:

        Great grill. Big cooking area. Occassionaly will not burn hot enough when all burners are lit. Grill seems to work best when only two of the burners are lit. After having the grill for over a year, we have had no other problems with it and will keep on using it in 2014.

        Performance
        Because the grill occassionally does not burn hot enough I had to dock a few point off the score. However, the grill does work very well when the burners are working at their best. The grill has a big cooking area and can easy prepare everything

        Ease of Use
        Grill was easy to put together and has been easy to use. As noted above the burners will occassionaly not burn hot enough, but that seems to be resolved by shutting it off and restarting the grill

        Ease of Cleaning
        Grill does need to be cleaned often to keep the burners clear and burning hot. However, the removable grease tray helps make clean up relatively easy

        Durability
        After using this grill for over a year we have had minimal problems with it. It has gone through rain, snow, sun, and wind and still works well

        Ease of Use
        We found that this grill is extremely easy to use and helps us create excellent food for our family. We have used it to cook hot dogs, hamburgers as well as steaks and smoked turkey.

        Ease of Cleaning
        The grill cleans easily with paper towels and water. Never a problem with left overs stuck on the grates.

        Durability
        The grill is a quality piece of equipment and has held up well with continued use. The exterior has not shown any signs of rust as others have in the past.

        This grill is easy to use. The starter has worked every time. The heat is fairly even in the main cooking area. The edges do not heat as well as the middle which can be expected. The temperature stays fairly steady. The stainless steel withstands weather well

        Not top of the line but it works great. I use mine 2 or 3 times a week for a couple years now.

        Ease of Use
        The only problem I ever had was with the electric starter. They wear out and ya end up using a grill lighter.

        Ease of Cleaning
        Easy to take apart and clean every part of the grill.

        Durability
        Two years old and the one I had before lasted for almost 5 years in the weather.

        Brinkman - first new gril

        from USA

        Comments about Brinkmann 5-Burner Gas Grill:

        This grill was wonderful when we purchased it brand new for my husband for father's day. It does do it's job as an outdoor grill, but it broke down pretty quickly in my opinion. The heating elements needed to be replaced by the second season of use. Then again two years later. We probably use our grill an average amount of time-from 5 - 8 times a month about 6 months a year.

        Good grill for price. Clear cut directions for assembly makes initial use simple. Great for first time or "pro" grillers

        Performance
        Lights first time every time. Sides do tend to have cold spots but allowing time for preheat offsets this nicely.

        Versatility
        Use it year round....rotary attachment makes it ideal for chickens, ducks, etc. Side burner is good size and will support rather large pots for corn, seafood, etc.

        Ease of Use
        Lights first time every time. Location of burners make off heat cooking very easy.

        Ease of Cleaning
        I use a spray cleaner. Let it sit for 15 min and then rinse off. Dose not get much easier.

        Durability
        Going on 4th year of use. Have had to replace grates and burner tents. Also cross channel are rusting out. But over not to bad for price. I use my grill year round so it had been used a lot.

        Design
        Lid handle is great compared to other grills in price range. Stays cool to touch and had never needed to be retightened. Side burner is well thought out and place of gas hoses prevents them from getting hot if grill catches fire.
