I personally love this grill, however, there are some pit falls. It was bought over 5 years ago, and it's beginning to rust. I try cleaning the grill, seasoning the grate, everything. Just recently, the middle row of flames started not lighting with the rest of the grill. However, I bought it fairly cheap, so the fact that it's lasted 5 years is still a great deal. I would advise strongly toward buying a grill cover if you choose to purchase this product and don't have anywhere out of the elements to store it.
