The Broilmaster Premium Series P3-X is a gas grill available from Broilmaster. The Premium Series P3-X typically costs $950 .

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on gas grill models like the Premium Series P3-X.


Stainless-steel grates:
Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.

Long-warranty burners:
While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.

Infrared burner:
Gas burner that uses infrared technology (ceramic burner, plates and screens, or troughs as some examples) for cooking. An indirect flame is used for cooking food. Burner can be located as the main burner, side burner, rotisserie burner, or any combination of burners.

Comment:
I believe they may be a bit overpriced but then again it is quality There is something about the retro classic grill look that is appealing as opposed to poor stainless steel that does not hold up. I have had too many mid-range grill, cheap, poorly constructed, 3 yrs. and in the dump. I would expect to have this for the rest of my life, easy to rebuild if necessary. I question your ratings.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am very happy with my Broilmaster. My model doesn't have the shutter system, because it wasn't available when I bought it 12 years ago. I like it for it's cooking performance, quality materials, classic look, and being made in the USA. I literally have never cleaned it except for scraping the cooking grid before cooking. The burner and cast iron grids need to be replaced because of neglect and harsh michigan winters. I will be replacing those parts for a couple hundred dollars, because a new broilmaster with all the upgrades I have would be around $1700. It is neat thinking I could use this grill my whole life.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
