This compact grill is awesome. I bought it to replace my old grill that was taking up too much space on my small urban patio. On top of needing considerably less space than my prior grill, it lights quickly, is powerful, and distributes heat evenly. The grilling surface is substantial and is great quality. Grilling has never been quite as easy. Cuisenart makes a portable grill stand that I found at another site that it fits on top of securely and I purchased the grill cover/carrier. I was expecting to have to compromise on quality to find a grill that would fit on my patio instead of taking it over. I highly recommend this grill.
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.
Except for the casing, far inferior from my old PGG. Too bad I trashed it, no pics. But it had the logo top & handles & best of all it imprinted on the hood Made in USA !!! It was more than 10 yrs old. I should have kept it. Oh, I subs the hood handle with the old one. LOL
