Char-Broil: Attractive Design, Affordable Price, Questionable Quality


      Just imagine you're in your local home improvement store shopping for an impressive looking gas grill at a price you fell you can afford.  You glance over several models, and a shiny, large, and attractive Char-Broil catches your eye.  You think to yourself, “All this for only $399?”. Hopefully that’s when you realize you better read some Char-Boil Grill Reviews before you pull out your wallet.


      Char-Broil has been a major brand name in grilling for over 60 years. In 1949 the first Char-Broil model rolled off the W.C. Bradley Co. assembly line in Columbus, Ohio. Char-broil’s popularity quickly grew, with sales increasing by as much as 20% year over year. This was assisted by a huge advertising campaign in the late 80’s and early 90’s in an attempt to compete with Weber.


      Today Char-Broil is still family owned with several different product lines including the Kenmore brand of grills sold at Sears and The Great Indoors. Char-Broil offers a wide variety of models with sizes ranging from 280 to 840 square inches of cooking space and up to 75,500 BTU’s. Prices start at just over 100 dollars all the way up to a little over 1200 dollars for their top of the line infrared model.


       Char-Broil grills do have their advantages.  They continue to be innovative in design and grilling performance. Not to mention even heat distribution, and the fact most of their grills have more than enough power output for their size.  That includes their new infrared designs that can easily reach over 700 degrees and have become quite popular.

      The bottom line when it comes to Char-Broil grills is that you’ll get a fairly good performing unit with great curb appeal for a decent price. However, feature packed grills in this price range come at the sacrifice of quality construction. The major drawbacks you will encounter will be the lower quality 430 stainless steel that will rust and discolor after a few seasons. You can expect the thin burners to be the first to rust through within several years.
