Seems like you need stainless steel for any outdoor grill. why can't they make a black grill that handles high heat and uv rays??? My black grill turned to old grey only after 2 years of outdoor use. I tried to get the cover and that did not help. And it seems like if you paint it, it does not last. Performance it does work well . cooks food Versatility works as promised. Ease of Use needs better way to store fat. hate it that it drains over the cup on the bottom and hits the propane tank. Ease of Cleaning there has to be better ways to stop the rust for areas you do not cook on.
