I really like this grill except: The heat: (1.) If you Open the hood the temp drops considerably. (2.) We had a previous model from Char-Broil that had another shelf below the burner with Bricketts on it. That really helped with heat loss. I was wondering if there was a something like that I could get for this model. (3.) You really shouldn't use an extension cord with this grill because a longer cord will affect the amperage which affects the maximum temp. (4.) You should plug this or any electric grill into a circuit that doesn't have much else plugged into it or you will trip circuit breakers. I have a dedicated circuit that only goes to the area of the grill.

Surprising results.

By CanadianBBQguy

from Undisclosed

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

I bought this grill 2 months ago and although I had reservations about an electric grill I have been pleasantly surprised. Although as some people say the temperature drops when you open the lid I have not any problems cooking on this grill, nice grill marks, the BBQ flavour equals that of a propane BBQ. One very important piece a of advice is to make sure you have an adequate extension cord if using one. I used the 16 gauge cord that I had, 2 things occurred. First the temperature wouldn't go above 400f, second the cord got dangerously hot! I then bought a 12 gauge with much better results, temperature now reaches 550f. I would highly recommend this grill for those that have gas or charcoal restrictions.

Slooooow cooker

By KDC3

from Undisclosed

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

I am disappointed in the performance of this grill. We have had a T-36D infrared grill for several years and absolutely love it. I bought this small electric grill to keep at our vacation home because I didn't want to deal with propane there, but wanted the infrared technology. Big mistake. I should have bought the propane version. This grill takes 15 minutes to get up to temperature, which would be fine. But, every time I open the grill to turn meat the temperature drops way off and then slowly rebuilds when the lid is closed. Start to finish, getting the grill hot and then cooking, even a package of hot dogs takes 40-45 minutes grill. I always use it with the temperature controller set to maximum.

New Grill just ok

By Ronjm

from Manhattan, New York, NY, United States

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

Had an old Charbroil electric for over 10 years and it was great. Got the new infra one and find it does not heat to max for at least 20 minutes and then when open to place meat on the temp drops and it takes forever to cook. Am surprised also that the max temp on thermometer is only 550. Really not happy with this new version. Loved my old one but this one just does not to the job.

Love this as our backup grill

By paintbalmaniac

from Lake Havasu City, AZ, United States

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

I use this on my enclosed patio for my wife and I. I have a 5-burner gas outside for larger foods when we have company. IT WORKS GREAT! You do need to learn infrared cooking, because it is different than propane. I have never overdone a steak, or ruined a meal. It takes up very little space and is very easy to operate and clean. After 2 years I would not be without this great appliance. Everyone remarks on its looks and style.

Good grill, best when using iron grill

By shiller

from Annapolis, MD, United States

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

I have a BGE which I use for most grilling, However, when my wife wants to cook she wants something simple. This grill fits the bill. We also order the iron grill accessory and use it all the time. Because it is heavy it holds the heat and is perfect for pork chops and chicken.

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

This grill is horrible. I have had many grills, but because of where I live, I had to purchase an electric grill. THERE IS NO TEMPERATURE CONTROL. I'VE REPLACED THE FIRST ONE AND THE SECOND ONE DOES NOT WORK EITHER!! Therefore, everything cooks at 500 degrees!! I'm disgusted!!!!!!

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

This electric grill works well. Once you get the feeling of cooking on electric, compared to gas or charcoal its just as good. Keeps the grilled flavors in the food. Great for places that don't allow gas or charcoal grills

Love electric

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

Never thought I would like an electric grill but now I won't go back. Quick, easy, everything is so much more juicy than propane or charcoal. You just plug it in and you have instant heat. Holds more than you would expect.

Nice looking grill

By Mikey

from Mountains of Colorado

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

Maybe its the altitude at 9,000ft but the grill takes forever to get hot. Once you open the lid it cools down and has to warm up all over again. I have no problem with gas grills at this altitude.

Great grill for condo balcony!!

By Snowbird

from St. Pete Beach, FL, United States

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

We are very happy with this grill! It is ideal for a condo that only allows electric grills. We were hesitant to purchase an electric grill - but this is great! Several of our condo neighbors now own this grill! It is a nice size for a balcony-- and performs very well! We are so happy to be grilling again!!

My apartment complex permits electric grills

By whatisthis11

from Port Royal, SC, United States

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

Bought this over a year ago. Satisfaction has been about 50/50. Can be very difficult to maintain degree consistency and due to the electrical amps and wiring of too many outlets on one circuit, we have to turn off electricity using in 3 rooms, so the breaker won't blow. Have no qualms with how the food taste, main problem is heat consistency, takes while to get to desired temp, then it quickly surpasses; constantly having to adjust the temp. gauge. Do not know any other residents here who have electric grill so have no comparison. Would recommend hesitantly as this serves our purpose.

Best Grill!!!!!!

By purplemo

from Jamaica, NY

Comments about CHARBROIL Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Portable Patio Bistro Electric Grill (14601911):

I brought my Grill about a year ago. I love this grill. I was a charcoal griller before I move into my co-op. I couldn't use a charcoal or a gas grill so if I want to grill I had to go electric. I was very reluctant to get a electric grill but I finally gave in and got it and I have only have 1 regret. I did get one sooner. Absolutely love this grill.

We are very happy with our Char-Broil Patio Bistro. We have enjoyed using it for the past year on our condo balcony. We never imagined that we could find an electric grill that would reach searing temperatures. We have recommended your product to several of our condo neighbors and family.
