Product Description

Product Description

Big time grilling in a compact unit. The Patio Caddie is perfect for small decks, terraces and patios, yet it doesn't skimp on features. It has a rust-resistant porcelain body, heavy-gauge porcelainized cooking grid, heat gauge in the lid, thermostatic handles, and a stable, wobble-free base. The gas grill accommodates a 11 1/2 pound LP tank that is lighter and easy to handle or a 20 pound LP tank. What the gas Patio caddie gives you is perfectly seared, tender and juicy grilled foods, time after time, all year long.

For apartment dwellers with limited outdoor space, Char-Broil created their Patio Caddie grills. Compact yet efficient, the propane grill offers 187 square inches of cooking space, ideal for small households or as a vacation home grill. Activated by a push-button electronic ignition, a 10,000 BTU burner roasts mesquite chicken or a half-dozen bratwurst.

The freestanding grill's body features porcelain-steel construction that resists rusting. Equipped with heavy-gauge porcelain cooking grids, the grill distributes heat evenly while cleaning with ease. A grease catcher collects drippings for simple disposal. Char-broil employed their patented Thermsulate lining to ensure steady temperatures, which can be monitored on the temperature gauge. The grill lid also includes thermostatic handles. The grill's body is supported by a sturdy plastic base and can be moved to and fro on the wheels implemented on two of the grill's legs. For the best care, clean the grates with a mild detergent and avoid use of steel wool and other abrasives. The grill affixes to either an 11-1/2- or 20- pound propane tank. This item requires assembly and necessitates the use of a Phillips screwdriver, wrench and pliers. Hardware is enclosed with the thorough assembly instructions. The Patio Caddie also comes in electric models. A five-year limited warranty covers the main body of this grill while a one-year warranty protects smaller parts. The grill measures 22 by 16-3/4 by 44 inches and weighs 52 pounds upon shipping. Propane tank not included.--Jessica Reuling

Consider this a long term test. I bought my Patio Caddie out of desperation when another cheap grille died one nice summer Saturday with friends coming over for dinner. I simply wasn't in a mood to spend $400 or $500 for a king kong unit.
What makes a good grille is really simple: it must start every time (it does), it must generate enough heat to cook (it does, but keeping the cover on helps)and it must have high quality grids (it does). On the last point, and what really sets the Patio Caddie Apart, are the heavy porcelainized grids. The are wonderful to cook on, easy to clean, haven't sagged in 5 years use.
Consider this the Honda Civic of grills: I fill the mini-tank once or twice a year for $7 and cook at least once a week year round (in Seattle, no less). It is absolutely the finest chicken cooking device I have ever seen and easily cooks dinner for 4 to 6. No it won't handle a 10 Lb salmon in one shot or cook a dozen burgers for a tribal reunion. And a Honda Civic wont carry an entire NFL team at one time either.
The only downside is that the heat output does become limited below 50 degrees, but that's a function of the propane, not the grill itself.
If you live in a condo or apartment with a small deck, if you're on a budget, or want a portable unit look no further, this is it.
I will be moving on to a bigger and better grille in a couple weeks, and believe it or not, I have a friend who wants my old patio caddie for her condo. Old, greasy and well used, it still has life in it, and she knows how well it cooks. I just hope my new, bigger grille works as well.

The Patio Caddie is a nice small grill-good for small spaces when you want the convenience of propane. It is well constructed and easy to use. Assembly is a bit of a pain, though nowhere near as bad as their old full size units. If you have a cordless screwdriver and can follow their instructions, it should take about 30 minutes to an hour. It's very easy to use-a push button ignition, burner control on the front, and with the propane tank sitting down below, you have easy access to the valve. There are nice touches like a built in thermometer and a retainer clip so you can hinge the lid on the lip of the grill if you don't have a place to put it when you have the lid off. It does generate a decent amount of heat for a single burner grill-just enough for searing, and the ceramic charcoals do much better than lava rocks. On the bad side, it's hard to see the flame, so it's not exactly easy to tell if you've sucessfully ignited the gas. An electronic battery operated ignition would be a lot nicer. And while easy to wheel around, the small propane tank doesn't cut it-it doesn't hold enough, and if you do the tank exchange instead of filling your old one, no one will accept it. It's great for a small grill-a good step up from a small charcoal grill. If you have the space, you'll be a lot happier with a full size grill. With multiple burners and a lot more BTU power, you'll get better results with a full size grill-and many don't cost much more than the patio caddy. But if you only have enough room for a small grill, this is one of the best on the market.

If you read other reviews people are giving this thing 5 stars and listing serious shortcomings... Here are mine.
Cons :
You have to cook with the lid on. Low with the lid on is 475 high is 525 degrees. Mother of Pearl!!! Steaks, fine. Ribs, forget it.
The assembly kit comes with two types of screws that are only 1/8 inch different in length. I used 2 of the longer ones someplace on my grill, then could not install the lid handle because what I had left was slightly too short.
The grill shipped with two parts missing and a sheet that said that if I happened to be missing any parts they would ship them to me at no charge... Hmmm....
There are significant hot and cold spots on the grill surface
Pros :
The form factor is perfect for my small balcony
The little tank makes it easy to move and to refill. It lasts forever too. No need for a biggie tank.
The ceramic grate doesn't rust and is a snap to clean
The electric start is STILL WORKING!!!

By A Customer on September 12, 2000
I have stress tested the Patio Caddie for five weeks and am very pleased. Obviously, it has size limitations, but for day-to-day cooking for one or two people, it's great. Capacity is fine: Have grilled six burgers, four steaks, four tuna steaks, four chicken breasts with ease and excellent results. Considered several alternatives before buying this grill, and clearly this one stands out in its class.
There are some shortcomings: It takes a few minutes to get up to "grilling speed". You should let the grill heat up to 400+ before you start cooking, otherwise you're just warming first. And that takes about four minutes.
You can get the grill up well over 500+, but you must keep the lid on all the time. The design is based on closed-lid cooking. Take that lid off, and the heat dissipates, and you're not cooking, just burning.
The 11 pound tank is handy, but you can't use it for any of the "swap" programs at places like Home Depot. So invest in a 20 pound tank ($40 for the first purchase of a full tank), and you can then just swap it out for another full one. Use your 11 pound tank as the backup. You can, of course, bring the 11 pound tank to a refilling service.
What about tools? There's a little handle on the front for lifting the grill to wheel it around, but it's too small and it's right over the controls... you can't hang your tongs, fork, or spatula there. So, get one of the add-on tool hangers (Weber has one that's designed for their round grill), and use that for tools. (The Patio Caddie has this lame little metal loop that hangs below that you might use for this purpose, but it's inconvenient.)
