Comments about Char-Broil Bistro:

The size of this grill is just perfect for those who lives in an apartment. It has a propane grill in a charcoal body that cooks food beautifully.
Versatility
You can cook almost any type food without getting burnt or getting any gristle.
Ease of Use
It is very easy to use just like any other tradition grill, but it does not have as many knobs as the grill gets heat from only one source.
Easy of Cleaning
The grill is little difficult to clean because how the infrared grate is built. Food and ash often get stuck in the small slots and it is almost impossible to clean all the debris due to the cooking surface edge.
Durability
This grill is nicely poised to last for several years and hopefully no signs of rust occur on the top of the grill.

A better gas grill than expected.

Comments about Char-Broil Bistro:

After last year's harsh winter, our last grill rusted out pretty bad and we saw this one as a good replacement. It's a compact size where we can store it in our garage in the winter out of the way b but has a good size grilling surface for our family. The tank fits nicely on the storage rack where it can be moved with the grill and not carried separately. It easily moves (even with the tank) and brings out great flavor in the food.

Performance
Skeptical at first of Char-broil's new technology, it is better than we thought and delivered as promised. The ease of cooking on it and having it come out flavorful and juicy is definitely something we've been wanting.

Versatility
Anything can be cooked on it without burning or getting any gristle.

Ease of Use
As easy to use as any other standard gas grill, but doesn't have as many knobs as the grill only gets one heat source.

Ease of Cleaning
Although it came with a metal scraper, i would have a cloth in between that and the grilling surface since some reviewed it can cause harm to the grilling surface. But the grates clean easy and stuff doesn't stay stuck on.

Durability
I'm seeing this as a grill that will last, especially since we can store it easily. It never knocked down in stormy weather when it was being used and it looks to be made well where rust hopefully won't occur in a long time.

Design
It's compact yet very sleek looking. The handle makes it easy to open and shut, as well as wheel it around. I also love having to be able to store the tank right on the base. Not only does it add weight for the grill to stay standing, but it makes it a lot easier to wheel it with the grill instead of lugging it separately. Overall it looks real nice on a small patio.

Perfect for apartment dwellers or beginners.

Comments about Char-Broil Bistro:

My wife and I got this grill because we live in an apartment and didn't want/need a typical large propane grill. The size of this grill is PERFECT! It's a propane grill in the body of a charcoal grill. It cooks food wonderfully.

We've used it for everything from chicken to porkloin to vegetables and everything had always been delicious and evenly cooked. I've never had a better steak than those I cook on this grill.

Our only complaint is it could be easier to clean.

I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

Ease of Use
Just one knob and one burner to worry about. Easy to monitor temperature and cook evenly. It even comes with recommended heat and cooking times for specific meats.

Ease of Cleaning
Because of how the infrared grate is built,, this can be a bit hard to clean. Food and ash get stuck in the small slots and the edge of the cooking surface makes it near impossible to sweep all debris off without removing it. Kind of a pain but not really a big deal.

Even Cooking efficiency!

By 

from Demotte, IN

Comments about Char-Broil Bistro:

The plate cooks the meat evenly, even the edges of the grill cook the same as the middle of the grill. Easy clean up!

Performance
Fast even cooking

Versatility
Cooking surface is a bit smaller than other gas grills.

Ease of Use
Turn dial, and push to start, easy! Heats up quickly.

Ease of Cleaning
Plates come out for easy cleaning.

Durability
We've had our grill for one year, still looks new and it is used often.

Design
Nice space saver, a bit smaller than other gas grills but you can use all the actual grilling space. Needs a better handle though to pull it around.
