I have to admit I was skeptical at first about this little grill. I received it as a birthday gift last October. First time out cooking we did 1 inch thick ribeyes, and boy was I impressed. The grill heated up very quickly and was ready to sear the steaks in about 5 minutes. I opened the lid and threw the steaks on and cooked them for about 5 minutes per side. The burners got the grate so hot I had those fancy grill marks on my steak like you get on your steak from the good steakhouses. I was surely impressed on this outing, and since then I have cooked hamburgers, hot dogs, and pork chops very quickly and easily with this little marvel. Performance The grill gets really hot for it's size. The burners put out a high level of BTU's to sear food and cook quickly. Versatility I can cook virtually anything you can imagine on this grill. Ease of Use The grill is very easy to use and to light. It also uses a minimal amount of propane compared to the bigger models. Ease of Cleaning Cleaning is as simple as getting your grill hot and using a wire brush to scrape the grates. Durability All signs so far that this is a durable little grill. I bought a cover for it to protect it from the elements. Only time will tell. Design The design is great. It provides a powerful, easy to use, and space saving grill that is small in size but big on performance.
