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).

I read every review left for this product, I'm just not sure what the "haters" are hating about.
Keep the grill clean, you don't need excessive nonstick spray, read the instructions regarding which part of the heating surface is hotter, and which area is for lower temp cooking.
One important note that at first I saw as a flaw, the rear half of the grill is very hot, being heating element is more concentrated there. So it gave me a hot searing surface and a slow cooking surface toward the front. Awesome for me. So I'll be commenting more as I experiment with techniques, materials, and ingredients.
Over all, well made and easy to use. I love it.
My wife & I downsized from a house to a condo back in January, and we always had a gas grill, which I knew I would miss because we like to cook out so much. Luckily, our condo has a small balcony, with an electric outlet, and electric grills are allowed. My expectations were not that great though because I've owned an electric grill in the past, and the performance was not that great. I received a recommendation on the Char-Broil TRU-Infared electric grill from my son's girlfriend, who has one, so I thought I would give it a try. I purchased it back in March, when it was still cold & windy here in Massachusetts. I was pleasantly surprised that it worked so well even when it was only 50 degrees and windy outside. 4 months later, we are still enjoying cooking steaks, burgers, chicken, and vegetables on this grill, a few times a week. It is very easy to clean up, and I really like the convenient access to the grease cup underneath. It is made of heavy gauge metal, and is easily removed by sliding it out on a track, so you can bring it inside for washing. I would recommend this grill to anyone.
First experience: Initial heat/seasoning
I purchased because I am temporarily in an apartment. It draws a lot of current and with a PS4, TV, few lights on it flipped the breaker a few times. Once I got the kids off the games and TV, I had no issues. I turned it up on high (5); it did take a little while to get to 550 degrees, but it got there and was able to maintain for 30 minutes before turning it off. Once it was cool, I put it up and determined then that I don't care for the wheels. They are a little to plastic for my liking. Almost like they would deteriorate really quick. The grill is light though, so maybe they will be sufficient. Time will tell.
Memorial Day 2017 was the first time actually using. because it can take a little while to heat up, I decided to turn it on early. Ended up being a little to early (about and hour) because when I did finally start to cook some burgers, one of the times opening the lid I found that it could not get back to temp. I found that it does have cut-off in case you forget to turn it off. I think I had it running for more than an hour so over all I like this feature. Once I turned it off and back on, it worked like it is supposed to. As for cooking, I started with 7 good size burgers and still had some room so I threw on one hot dogs. I guess they came out good because they were devoured. Next I toasted the buns. Normally I end up burning one or two, but all them came out great on this grill. Lastly I cooked some boneless thighs. I was able to get 8 or 9 of them on the grill with them spread out. They also came out good. For both the burgers and the chicken I was also able to obtain the seared look as well.
Overall I am happy with the performance of this grill and would recommend it. It has plenty of room for grilling, the handle does not get hot and I like the metal rod for hanging items. The rack between the legs is also nice as I used this to hold the top rack from in the grill when I was not using it.
