Easy to assemble, works great, boyfriend happy!
on July 15, 2013
Edited October 2013 to say: We've used this grill nonstop all summer, and it's been great. Five stars plus!
I'll admit, when I ordered this for The Boyfriend's birthday, I was a little nervous. My past experience with men and gas grills was an entree into PTSD, what with all the flames and swearing.
But this went much more smoothly. The grill arrived via 2-day shipping (love Prime!) and all the pieces were there ... except the instruction book. Resourceful girl that I am, I found it online and printed out a copy.The grill itself was easy to assemble, and really didn't need a second pair of hands, though that would have made a couple of steps easier. Start to finish it took me about an hour, and that includes having to re-do a couple of the steps when I made a mistake due to unclear diagrams in the booklet.
The only completely confusing thing (if you're not terribly familiar with gas grills) was how to attach the Venturi clip, which was not explained very well in the directions at all (and called something different in the parts list), nor depicted clearly in the diagrams. I ended up Googling it and found that others had faced the same issue - so for anyone looking for that info - the Venturi clip looks like a stretched out paper clip. You slip the straight end into the little hole in the burner tube, then pull the clip like a spring until you can hook the other end over the gas pipe toward the front of the grill, like a hanger over a rod. The idea is that the clip keeps the burner tube in place against the gas pipe.
So. Aside from that, the grill works like a charm, and I haven't had to cook dinner in the kitchen since last week. Everyone wins!
Seriously, this was a great price for a nice grill.
