Jenn-Air Grills | Reviews &
Packed, Reputable Brand, Questionable Quality
ever thought about designing their dream home might have very well included it with a full line of Jenn-Air’s top
of the line appliances in the kitchen. After all, just about everyone recognizes their brand as
designing and manufacturing high end luxury cook tops, ovens, and refrigerators. The question is, in
your dream home, would you have included a Jenn-Air gas grill in the back yard?
Jenn-Air began in 1961 as an innovator in gas cook top technology and eventually moved into manufacturing a
large spectrum of kitchen appliances. Today many of their appliances are on the cutting edge of
technology with LED controls and built in precision management systems. Unfortunately, all this
history doesn’t flow over to their line of gas grills, which are manufactured by Nexgrill in China.
Nexgrill has gained a rather low reputation for customer service and building inferior grills over the past few
years. It’s a wonder why Jenn-Air would ever put its brand reputation on such a
Jenn-Air only has a few models for sale at any given time. Their grills mostly sell at member’s discount
store like Sam’s, BJ’s, and Lowes. Their current lineup ranges in price from 650 dollars up to 1000
dollars. All their grills are of similar size and power output ranging from 58,000 to 78,000 BTU’s and
from 742 to 930 square inches of cooking area.
Aside from being manufactured by Nexgrill, which has a poor reputation for quality,
customer service, and parts availability, Jenn-Air grills are flashy and feature packed. Most Jenn-Air models
come with infrared side burners, halogen lights, high output burners, and plenty of cooking space. It’s also
common for them to include a cover and even a natural gas conversion kit. On the other hand, none of their
models include a rotisserie kit even if they include the rotisserie burner. For this price range it’s not
unexpected that all these features come at a cost. Unfortunately, the inexpensive 400 series stainless and
the infrared burner, in particular, has shown to deteriorate quickly and has become hard to find replacement parts
for. Although you might think giving Jenn-Air a call would be the right thing to do, they offer no support
for these grills. All replacement parts must be ordered through Nexgrill.
Overall, Jenn-Air grills should have been a top of the line product, which would have been expected, however,
instead they’re hanging on mostly due to their brand name recognition. The fact is, than most people don’t
realize who they’re manufactured by, or the quality of Jenn-Air grills.
