This grill has lasted us over ten years and it is still going strong. We do a tremendous amount of grilling each summer and our old faithful grill never lets us down. From the North, we would only grill in the warm months; however we moved to Georgia a couple years ago. Our grill is being used just about every week in the South. It is durable, especially considering undergoing a couple moves. It's a gas grill and that has never affected the way our food has tasted. We have grilled every kind of meat and vegetable possible. Friends and guests rave about the food. The grill is very simple to turn off and on and adjust the temperature. It is simple to clean. Whenever not in use, we cover it with a tarp or pull it in the garage. It is simple to maneuver since it has got wheels on one side. The only thing I would like to change in the size. It would be nice to have more room on the wracks to grill for a larger group of people.
