Comment:
Bought this when the two older kids left just three of us to cook for. Heats up so quickly because of it's size that I am eating a steak before I could put one on the big grill. Get the adapter for the 20 lb tank. I go through one tank a year now instead of three. Cooks as evenly as any grill that I have owned and we have taken it camping. I really like this thing and after 3 years am just beginning to have some problems. I had to replace the flame baffle (with a home made one) and just starting to have some problems with the gas control knob. For the price I would highly recommend.

Comment:
I bought this BBQ from an excellent retailer but found that the lid would not close - it was bent out of alignment. As advised, I contacted Cuisinart and experienced quite amazingly poor customer service - submitted photos, receipt details etc. They could not care less. It was 'tough luck'. So, there are other excellent BBQ's out there and I would strongly advise potential buyers to look for a more ethical manufacturer.

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.
