How TRU-Infrared Works

All Char-Broil TRU-Infrared grills generate a minimum of 65 percent infrared heat, which is evenly spread across the entire cooking surface to cook food -- without drying -- at temperatures that range from simmer to sear.

Unlike traditional gas grills that use convective heat (hot air) to cook food, Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared grills limit the hot air flow and use natural, radiant heat to cook food directly without drying. While convective heat destroys food's moisture barrier, infrared heat penetrates it without drying and locks in natural juices and flavors. Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared cooking system virtually eliminates flare-ups while producing very even heat (no hot or cold spots).

Product was easy to assemble. All steps are illustrated clearly and the screws are all labeled helping to make sure you are using the correct ones at each step.

As for cooking. Preheat as suggested (15-20 min depending on outdoor temp) and you will get a 500 degree or greater temperature. I live in seattle and I still get a very hot grill using it in our chilly, rainy and windy weather.

The key to electric grills is to not open the grill often. Open it when placing food then only to turn it (once is usually enough!). You will get great searing and grill marks as well as even cooking. Food always has a nice color and never that icky grey color you get when using those indoor electric grills.

I use it one or more times weekly and have great results.

We recently moved into a townhouse that doesn't allow gas or charcoal grills. I was used to my Weber gas grill, and had some trepidation about switching to an electric grill. After reading the reviews, I decided to try it.

I have used my Patio Bistro grill multiple times a week since receiving it. I have grilled steak, burgers, fish, shrimp, chicken and vegetables. I have found it to work well and have grilling times very similar to my old Weber gas grill. Just like the gas grill, the best grilling method is to put the food on the grate, close the cover and leave it alone. Open the cover, flip once, close the cover and finish the grilling time.

It is necessary to turn the grill on 10-15 minutes ahead of time to get it up to temp, but it easily gets to 500 degrees and maintains a good temp with the lid closed. Be sure to get a cord that is at least 14 gauge. If you use a standard 18 or 16 gauge cord, you will experience line drop in the voltage which will limit the ability of the grill to maintain its proper temperature.

As other reviews have pointed out, the assembly leaves something to be desired. If you aren't careful, you can assemble things backward or upside down, the directions aren't entirely clear. However, if you look at the included drawings prior to attaching parts, you won't have any problem. An adjustable wrench and a screwdriver are all you technically need, but if you have some small wrenches or nut drivers, they make the assembly much easier.

All in all, I like the grill and recommend it.

Well, I guess first the good news. initially I was concerned about the comments about how difficult it was to put together. They were wrong. It was easy.

Now the bad news, I put it all together, it was packaged really well, everything was in plastic, or paper or styrofoam. i used the directions, very straight forward. pick up the bottom grill "bowl" and found the paint either rubbed off or missing, it was like a mis spray. at first i saw it on the bottom where the screws are and thought, ahhh. no big deal. It was disappointing to find it missing right on the front of the bowl though. Still, i thought, i'll just have them send me some touch up paint. no big deal. I got everything done, had it all put together, put the grill section inside the bowl, and found it rocking and resting on the heat coil. Crap! so, further inspection reveals that the grill sits inside the bowl on bent sheet metal tabs either aluminum or pot metal. its brittle, anyway, these pieces are pop riveted to the grill and cant be replaced.

Points to amazon though, i called, disappointed, and regretting my decision. to get the new parts they are sending me a new grill, i'll take the parts i need, send the grill back with the bad parts from mine and call it good.

I bought this because i live in a Condo. I'll see how it works when i get it running. The bowl looks like good old fashioned porceliened steel, but its not, it pretty thin stamped and painted sheet metal.

A great little grill. We live in the middle of a forest and so must use electric grills. This one did a wonderful job after some practice with keeping the temperature up. We used an iDevice App with a magnet probe...to make sure our steaks were perfectly done. That way, we didn't have to open the lid so often and keeps the temperature more even.

Great size and appearance. Footprint fits easily into a corner on our small, 2nd floor Lanai where gas grills are prohibited. While warm up times are longer than with gas, the ceramic grill cooks evenly and reaches good, high temperatures to cook with. Keeping the lid down is more important than with gas to maintain temperatures but this is technique when dealing with electric infrared. Assembly is not difficult and all parts are conveniently packaged and labelled. Nothing was missing or damaged but patience is required as the number of fasteners is varied and high. I am fairly adept at assembling things like this and it took me a good 45 minutes. Nothing difficult or I'll fitting, just lots of steps and could be frustrating for impatient or mechanically inept assemblers.

Fantastic electric grill! Since we're not allowed to use propane grills where we live, the only option was electric or charcoal. After purchasing a charcoal grill, we decided that it wasn't for us since. We more or less gave up on grilling for a few years until we purchases the Char broil grill a few weeks ago. So far we have made Filet Mignon, Salmon, roasted veggies, grilled corn, and chicken. The food came out delicious, and clean up was a breeze. The only negative thing I have to say is that you must be quick when opening the cover since it does drop in temperature rather quickly. I knew this before hand based on other reviewers, but overall we make sure we're quick when checking on the items being grilled. Took about a 1/2 hour to put together, and it has a nice modern look to it.
