Char-Broil Standard Portable Liquid Propane Gas Grill Review: Notable Features
Look and Feel
The Char-Broil gas grill measures 12.3 inches wide x 15 inches deep x 9.5 inches high after assembly. It is black in color and is treated with a high-temperature finish to extend its life. Made from quality steel, the grill weighs 11 pounds.
The cooking grate of the Char-Broil Standard Portable Liquid Propane Gas Grill is 187 sq. inches in area, and can accommodate up to eight hamburgers at one time. It comes with chrome plating. This makes it very easy to clean. It is also dishwasher safe.
The main burner provides 11,000 BTUs of power and is made from stainless steel. This, accompanied by the heat distribution plate and the convection method, makes sure that food is evenly cooked. The grill is compatible with 16.4 oz or 14.1 oz propane gas cylinders.
The cooking system of this Char-Broil is gas-convective. In other words, the design of the grill makes convection possible. It ensures uniform heat flow throughout the cooking area. The result is evenly cooked foods that are lip-smacking.
The ignition of the grill is hassle-free as it comes with a piezo push button ignition. The piezoelectric effect requires a battery-free operation as it comes with a small piezoelectric crystal which generates electric sparks when pressed.
The grate is made from porcelain coated wire to ensure maximum heat transfer. The heat tent is made from aluminized steel.
A convenient hook helps hang the lid. The handles of the grill are made from heat resistant material. This means that you won’t have to wait for the grill to cool completely before moving it.
When it is time to go home, fold the legs over the top of the grill. This securely locks the lid in place.
The Char-Broil Standard Portable Liquid Propane Gas Grill would have made an ideal companion for tailgating, camping, fishing or beach trips, owing to its low size and weight profile. The ease of use and dishwasher friendly components make it desirable for those who are not looking for behemoth grills.
Unfortunately, quality control seems to be a hit or miss on this product. While most users are happy with it, more than a couple of them have complained about the propane flowing out causing fire due to a faulty regulator.
The grill has many potentials, and the low price may make it seem like too good a deal to not try it out. However, when safety is a concern, we wouldn’t recommend having too many expectations for it.
