I bought this little grill to expand my grill space when friends or family come. It supplements my Weber charcoal grill. <br />I like the convenience of the grill, quick heat up time and I find I use it for just me and my girlfriend.<br />I also bought a stand and cover for it. The stand allows for the expansion of a big tank. I have been content with the propane so far though.<br />Not sure why the bad rating of the little champ. I love it and get compliments on the design. <br />It does have one small flaw, it has uneven heating on the grill surface....heck I have that on my Weber...-)<br />I have improved the taste of the foods I prepare on this grill by placing a piece of hickory wood on the surface of the grill when I start it. Great flavor!<br />Good luck! Would buy this grill again. I have had it for close to a year now.

Not sure why this grill is at the bottom of the ratings. I needed a grill for the two of us or a small group, read some online reviews and purchased this grill. For my purposes, it's fine. It gets hot enough to cook everything I've tried so far-meat, fish and grilled veggies with no issues. Seasoning the grids (look at the [...] customer reviews)is a good idea and also line the interior with heavy duty foil. Wind does reduce the temp somewhat and the igniter isn't going to last forever (there is a way to self light it that appears to be simple so no worries). Again, for occasional grilling for a few people, it's fine. For larger scale, buy a bigger and more expensive grill. It appears to be well made so should last but I keep it in a closet and out of the elements. I bought the converter hose so I can use a regular propane tank. I also bought a small cart with two levels-one for the grill and the tank goes underneath so in and out of the storage closet with ease. Again, for the [$] I paid, I'm satisfied.
