It is an easy to use, reliable and practical for outdoor grilling. I can cook multiple items on the same surface because you can adjust the temperature on either side. Performance This little grill is a real powerhouse. It heats up quickly and cooks evenly. Versatility I am able to grill or bake in it. It provides good, solid, basic cooking for anyone. Ease of Use It couldn't be easier to use...just turn on the propane, click the starter and voila....! The levels of heat are easy to adjust for great results...and the two sides can be controlled independently. Ease of Cleaning The rack is easy to clean, but sometimes it is difficult to clean down by the burners. I wish there was a better way to prevent splash up and flare ups when grease comes off the food and hits the burners. Durability I keep my grill outside in the winter and during the rain and it stays nice...no rust or other problems. In the spring I do need to clean the venturi out, but it is pretty easy. Design It is a basic design, but that's perfect for the cook who is just grilling or baking. It is great that you can do things together that use different heat levels because the controls are separate.
