This is probably the easiest gas grill to assemble, it'll take you only 45 minutes up to less than an hour which is not bad compared with the other gas grill.

The gas grill is made largely of stainless steel which feels solid once fully assembled and does not feel flimsy at all. The outcome looks sleek and compact which you can easily fit in a small deck. The sturdy caster wheels 2 of which can be locked provides stability and mobility. They roll easily on deck.

Overall, the grill is easy to use. You can start it up quickly by using its electronic push button igniter. You also have the option to light up with a match and place it in a hole on the side of the firebox under the side table. This gives you flexibility and another option just in case the battery runs out.

Once the burners are lit up, the grill heats up quickly and consistently and could reach up to 500-600 degrees Fahrenheit. You can use the lid-mounted temperature gauge to determine the temperature and use the knobs to adjust the temperature to low, medium, and high. While the grill heats up, you can use the metal foldable side tables to prepare your cooking tools and ingredients. You can pull the side tables down when not in use and use them as shelves and then place the grill in a corner. Folding down the shelves also allows you to place the grill in a small corner of your deck or kitchen. The grill is 26.5" wide when side tables are folded down.

The cooking area is made of porcelain-coated cast iron grates that help prevent food from sticking or non-stick and makes them easy to clean with better resistance from rust which is a common problem on most grills. Having non-resistant cooking grates increase the life span of the grill allowing you to save money. A warming rack serves as an additional cooking space for you. You could use to warm already cooked food, heat up toasting buns or cook easily burnt food like vegetables. The grease falls safely to the removable grease tray and pan. They can easily be pulled out from the grill and porcelain-coated for easy cleaning.
