    I use this grill often, it is small, easy to use, easy to maneuver,cooks food evenly and almost as good as my convection oven!
    I would recommend putting wheels on the back as well as the front, also make a grill cover same shape as the grill, when I purchased my Patio Grill I had to buy a grill cover by a different company that was shaped the same as the Patio Grill .....GREAT Grill you will not be disappointed!....

    I had a problem since day one with the starter and called CB and they sent me a new one and it still does not work and have to light it with a match (hence the lighting hole in the back) but I'm still getting used to the (infrared) cooking part as you have to season every time you use it. I had the old patio caddie and loved it, now I don't know

          Have only had this a couple of weeks, but I love it. Easy to use, requires a little maintenance after each use, but it's worth it. I recommend the use of peanut oil as they suggest to prevent rusting.

              never used it, had to return it, the factory installed hoses leaked gas, went back to charcoal and old reliable "WEBER" grill, this would have been our 1st gas grill but - NO WAY !

                I grill 300 days a year, I have had and wore out $800.00 Stainless grills in two years. This one is built well and the Infrared cooktop is great, pop it into the dishwasher and it's good as new. Steaks, chops, dogs, and burgers have all been easy to cook and come off a perfect mid-rare even 1"+ steaks.

                      I have used this grill several times. The IR does grill differently than a standard gas grill. The jury is still out to weather it is better.
                      This grill is small enough to fit the small space allocated in the garage and it uses a 25lb propane tank instead of the small tank I had been using.
                      I would be nice to have a small flip up table and spot to hang utensils

                        This grill replaces the older version we had, which was not infrared.
                        This grill cooks evenly, and even produces the grill marks on whatever is cooking.
                        Have only used this 3 times, but very happy with it.
                        The grill was already put together when we purchased it. Yay!

                        Due to its size its quick and economical to us. It cooks excellent if you follow the directions.

                        I am not sure we have the cleaning down to what it should be. We are certainly not burning it off to clean it. It does clean up fairly quickly if you scrape both sides of the V-grill service and let the knife open the openings where needed. I would also like its grill surface to come out easier. I see no other grills out there to compare it to. If you can buy it on sale it certainly is worth trying out. If you don't need a large grill and you want to experience infra red cooking you won't be disappointed.
