Since I moved out on my own I was driven to not purchase a grill! I had my George Formen and I thought that was all that I needed! Then last summer I decided to throw a cook out and my father helped me pick out the grill. I ended up going wiht the char-Broil because it was easy to move around, but could hold A LOT of food! I did not have a lot of experience with grilling out because with the George Formen you just plug it in and throw on your food. But the directions were very easy even though I rarely follow directions! All I had to do was use common sense to figure it out! You obviously need char coal and lighter fluid so that was easy enough. I was surprised at how evenly it cooked my proteins. The first time I used it, I cooked for about 30 guests and with the size of the actual grill part, it did not take me long to prepare dinner for everybody! It was very efficient, easy to use and everything tasted great!!!!! I love this model too because you can move it on wheels and has a rather narrow base, but a big cooking area! I also later found out that my uncle had the exact same one and his has been working for years! So this product is very reliable and great! Great starter grill and great ending grill! I Love my Char-Broil!!!!!

While this review is correct in stating the evenness of cooking achieved by using this grill, I caution you NOT to buy it due to the cheap materials. I have had mine 1 Year and have already had to replace the cooking grates three times. They just continue to rust. I clean it after each use, leave it uncovered during periods of good weather (as the Charbroil folks have suggested to help mitigate the issue of humidity), use the cleaning brush that is supposedly designed specifically for this grill, but nothing works. This is an extremely high maintenance grill - and I'm someone who takes care of his things. I do not expect to neglect the grill. I recognize there is some basic maintenance work required to keep equipment in tip-top shape. However, the maintenance needs of this grill far exceed that. If you're like me and want to be able to enjoy your grill while performing basic routine maintenance, this grill is not for you. Its needs far exceed routine. Also, the grates are only guaranteed for one year - shame on me, I missed that fact when I bought it. But what does that tell you? Charbroil's expectation of the life span of the most important part of the grill is only one year? I had a Weber with a grate guarantee of 10 years. It's back to Weber for me after making this one very bad mistake. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT BUY THIS GRILL!.

Love the side burner on this Char-broil grill

By 

from Appleton, WI

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

I purchased this four burner Char-Broil grill for my husband for father's day.  His previous grill was small and we had to cook a meal in batches.  With five growing boys the small grill just wasn't cutting it.  This new grill is not only very impressive looking, but also very ecconomical.  We grill out at least once a week in the summer and this was a great investment.  We love the side burner so we can complete our entire meal outside and not add extra heat to the kitchen.  The grill was easy to assemble and went together well.  It is fairly easy to clean and has held up well so far.  There is a lot of space on this grill to complete all the courses of a large meal.  The auto igniters work well and I love that you don't have to have all the burners on if you are only cooking a small amount of food so it can conserve on propane.  I would definately recommend this grill to anyone who wants to be the envy of the neighborhood.

This Char-Broil is great!

By 

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

The Char-Broil that uses both propane and fire grill makes a perfect BBQ for the summer. Once you put the charcoal in the pit, just turn the propane and click ignite. It's ready to go within three minutes of your setup time. Once you get the Char-Broil you might think it's hard to assemble everything together, but you're wrong. It took my family 10 - 15 minutes to get all the pieces together and the Char-Broil works like a charm. For it's price you're paying for a top-notch BBQ equipment that will last you for over 6-10 years used. (Depending on how long you use it for) I find it very easy to get everything to start up which makes me save time. I highyl recommend this product to those who don't want to get their hands dirty and go all hands on in starting the grill. Save yourself time and use this Char-Broil to cook your BBQ feast to perfection. With all the temperature setting on the bottom, you don't need to worry about overcooking anything because the fire spreads out evenly.

Charbroil grill large enough to handle the food I want to cook!

By 

from Drummonds, TN

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

I bought this grill for my husband as a Father's day gift and I have used the grill at least 3 times per week since then, the grill has held up wonderfully and we have a large family and tend to cook large amounts of food and this grill handles that amount wonderfully. I love the extra burner for cooking sides and the top rack for warming buns and bread. The stainless steel is not cheap, it has held up very well in the weather and still looks new. I would recommend this grill for anyone who loves to cook and who wants quality products. I have found it very easy to use and I have not been a fan of using the grill in the past.

not worth the extra money

By 

from Spring, TX

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

I purchased this CharBroil propane grill for my husband 2 years ago as an anniversary gift.  I did a lot of looking around before purchasing this because we wanted one that would hold up better than our last grill did.  We also knew we wanted and enclosed bottom.  We purchased this grill because it was one of the few with stainless steel griddles and parts.  We figured it would be less likely to rust out.  I think it probably will, but the quality of stainless is far inferior to the more expensive units.  It is much more lightweight and thus not as sturdy nor lasting.  It is a large enough grill (most of the time) and easier to clean than our last grill.  However, the larger size also makes it harder to find a grill cover that fits.  The enclosed bottom is nice so that grill tools can be stored out of the weather elements and any grease splattering (there is a clean-out tray too) will not end up on the concrete.  We paid several hundred more for this grill than the average cheap grill.  The size is nice, but the stainless was not worth it in the hindsight.

My Char-Broil grill is awesome!

By 

from Charlestown, IN

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

I love my Char-Broil grill!  The only reason I would not give it 5 stars is that after 3 uses the ignitor stopped working.  It is very spacious and heavy duty.  I feel like it should last us a very long time.  Actually, I bought this for our river home and liked it so well, I bought another for my primary home!  I would highly recommend this grill to my family and friends.

best grill i have owned!

By 

from Boise, ID

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

This is a great grill! I was originally attracted to the Char Broil grill when a friend of mine purchased one. Right away i noticed the awesome construction and the heat output was very nice. i was so impressed with this grill that when i was shopping for one it was clearly the best choice. fairly simply to put together only took about 20 minutes. This grill does have the ability to get very hot which is nice for searing and cut of meat. While it has the ability to generate serious heat it is also very versatile i cook all sorts of slow cooked meats on my grill and so far i have to be honest i have not looked back at a charcoal grill. There really arent any negatives to this grill in my opinion for the money it is a really good choice you would be hard pressed to find a better grill for the money. Make sure you get a cover and invest in a good smoker box to add flavor to slow cooked meats

Totally love our grill!!!

By 

from Mount Ephraim, NJ

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

I got this grill for my husband for Father's Day when I saw that it was highly rated and recommended by Consumer Reports. We're big on checking Consumer Reports before buying things and have never had a bad experience and this grill is no exception! He was thrilled and so am I! Especially because when I don't feel like cooking I just get something ready for the grill and he does it! =) It is a perfect size for a small or large family. We use it all year long (even when it's cold!) We've had no problems at all grilling with it and just absolutely love it! One of my favorite features which not all grills have is the thermometer on the outside of the lid. Without even opening it up I can see if it's getting to hot or cold and adjust the dials accordingly. I especially like it since I'm not the best at grilling and am more familiar with the temperatures on an oven so when I can see the temperature inside I have an idea if it's doing what I need it to.

Awesome brand for grills

By 

from Pueblo, CO

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

I have used two char broil grills in my life.  They are quality grills for the price and I can find parts for them if they go out.  I have not had any problems with these grills.  They are better than most of the grills I have used out there like Kenmore.  This is my second because the first one I had almost burned off my eyebrows the other day because the electric ignition went out and was getting hard to light.  The newer the grill is the easier it is to find parts.  The only downfall with this grill is the electric ignition went out in the first 6 months, but it was easy to order a part for it and replace it.  These grills are easy to take apart for easy cleaning and are the easiest to cook your food on with lots of options.  I would highly recommend Char-broil for their grills and they last a long time.

Cooks lots of food really fast

By 

from Pasco, WA

Comments about Char-Broil M580 Quantum Infrared Propane Grill 463271309:

My husband and I recieved this great barbeque from our nephew and we have enjoyed it thoroughly.  Having the gas grill is so convenient.  Although sometimes I prefer the charcoal cooking method on some foods better, it is so nice to just come out turn the grill on and within minutes have your food cooked and ready to serve.  This grill is large enough to cook your entire meal.  One night we had two fish baskets, asparagus, and pineapple all cooking at the same time by using the upper grill.   All of the food came out with fantastic flavoring and clean up was a breeze.  I just burned off the food and used the scraper to get the grill cleaned.  The temperature is less even than with our little charcoal grill but with a few adjustments during cooking it will turn out well.  It gets a little to hot in the center so halfway through cooking I turn the center burner to low.  Other than that I am very happy with this grill, it has been great for large parties and guests.
