1. The Grill
-Lid that fastens shut
-Push to start
-Foldable legs - Directions don't say that it is to be used for table top grilling, but it sits several inches up and might work.
-Large grilling space
-Drip pan doesn't lock into place, I see this falling out in transportation. Maybe I'll just have to pull it out and throw it inside.
-Table top grilling isn't mentioned in the instructions
-Dial to turn gas on seems a little flimsy. If it breaks (or annoys me) it shouldn't be a problem to buy a replacement. I'm pretty sure that most will have the same fittings.
-Electric start never worked, it produced a spark strong enough to shock me but never made a good connection. I've considered attempting to rewire it.
-Hinge nails don't secure well enough. I lost 1 in transportation but was able to replace it with a bolt and a wingnut that works fantastic. Less than a $1 fix.
If you aren't one who likes to build things, you might want to think again. You actually might want to think again about purchasing a product from Amazon as I'm not aware of any that come completely built. Your best bet might be purchasing a display model or something from a store or finding someone who doesn't mind giving a helping hand. The instructions claim that this is a 20 minute project. I spent somewhere between an hour and an hour and a half, but I think I also went the extra mile (see below).
That being said, it isn't too difficult. The grill comes with a phillips screwdriver which claims to be the only tool you need. I disagree with this statement. At the minimum you would also need a wrench or pliers, I used needle nose pliars. This can be used to hold the nut as you screw, but is also the only way that you will be able to tighen the handles as the screws come out of the handles. No way a screw driver would help there. I'd also recommend a socket wrench. 8mm and 10mm for the two types of nuts. While this isn't required, I wanted to go the extra mile and tighten down the handles and the hinges so that my grill doesn't fall apart.
The last comment I would like to make is that the instructions are usable but by no means perfect. I found one notable mistake in regards to how the igniter fastens into the grill. The instructions have it wrong. I was able to make it work, but the wire does tend to fall out. I wedged it in but it still wouldn't ignite. I use an aim'flame which is required by most propane camping gear anyway. Clearly not the end of the world that this doesn't work. The instructions include pictures to assist but you might need to take a double or triple take.
Once it is put together the thing is sturdy. The lid can be opened without the grill falling over (this happened camping once and started a small fire). There are also 1 extra of each of the washers/nuts.
3. The grilling
The grilling works great. Lots of space allows me to easily cook enough food for what I need it. You can easily fit 8 burgers on this thing, 10-12 if you are good about where you put them. My first propane tank gave out on my during my 4th grilling. This sounds about right considering that I had the grill run for sometime before I used it to burn off any chemicals and because the first time I used it I made potatoes which needed about 40 minutes to cook. This thing will easily get up to 500 degrees on medium which so I'll go to medium low for my grilling.
My initial rating was 3 stars because I hadn't grilled with it yet. I would like to up that to 3 and a half if I could. I don't want to go 4 or 5 because of the defects with the hinge, igniter, and the assembly being a bit complicated. Other than those things, its a great grill and I have no buyers remorse.
iginate. Instead of returning unit I use one of those starter lighters. To much trouble to return. You might pump up connection
so it works the way its suppose too or leave off and lower the price. Why pay for a red button to iginate when their is not enough
spark to start. I do enjoy the convenience of the small unit and performance of the flame. I'll use my Weber for chicken and longer
cooking meats and poultry.
