This grill works just fine for all the cooking I do on it. I use it 3 times a week or more. The fuel canisters are cheep and they last quite a while. You can cook a lot of food on it at one time and it all comes out fine. I'm completely happy with this grill. Also, it wasn't hard to put together.
What we had been looking for in a portable unit was stability, very portable, and easy to clean. A bonus seem to be that the heat below the unit is mild. We would not hesitate to put this grill on a wood table top. Cusinart is usually a quality manufacturer. The brand name is what helped me make the purchase. However, a temperature guage might help. I usually find a comfortable setting and adjust time for a better than average outcome. Keeping the lid closed helps the cooking and make the timming more accurate... The real cooking at home is still done on my Weber.
Bought my char-broil in July just in time for the peak of the summer season. The flame/heat is evenly distributed across the grill. Meats, fish & veg all turn out great. Easy to assemble, attach the gas canister, & light. Cleanup is a snap - grilling surface is lifted out with ease and can be thoroughly cleaned. Size, portability, storage is perfect for my small home. Safe for tailgating & camping, too.
