Comments about Char-Broil Patio Bistro Tru-Infrared 2-Burner Propane Grill:
This is the worst grill we have ever owned. My husband bought it to replace our patio caddy. It looked nice but then I tried grilling on it. I use marinade so that was my first mistake. It is hard to gauge how long to cook the food. And forget cleanup. All of the burn-off just accumulates on the grate. You have to take it apart to clean it. Way too much trouble than it's worth.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This grill is perfect for small patios/back yards and cooks steak perfectly! The sear is amazing! Also, being able to add wood chips is great feature. No complaints whatsoever.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
We have had several of ...
We have had several of the original patio caddys. Then it was discontinued and we ought the patio bistro. Not only does it not cook as well but also is hard to clean,having to take the grill tray off to do it properly,effectively. The infrared cooking just does not compare to the former patio caddy. Please bring back the older model
Not easy to clean
I was very excited to try this new grill after having a Patio Caddy for years. I'm finding it impossible to clean this new grill. How do I do it
Hard to Clean
Dear Char-Broil, Please consider releasing a ceramic grate option with larger holes for this model. I grill marinated meat regularly and it is impossible to clean the current grate properly without completely removing it from the grill and taking some steel wool to it. I either have to wait an hour for the grill to cool down and clean it right then and there, or take 15 minutes scrubbing the heck out of it before grilling. There is no burning off the bits with this grill. The only redeeming feature is the massive heat output. I do most of my grilling at 1-2. For others, if you're thinking about purchasing this grill, it'll work great for you if you grill plain meats, veggies, and basically anything that doesn't release sugar. Help a gal out, CB. Thanks, A Char-Broil Loyalist

Not what I expected
I had one of the older Char Grill Patio gas grills that I dearly loved. Cooked perfect. And then it was discontinued. I was delighted to find this new Patio Caddy, however, the 'Tru-Infrared Cooking System is terrible. When I cook a steak I want it to be chard first. This grill does not do that. I wish i could sent it back, but no longer have the box.
