Can't reach high temps!

Pros
Easy To Use
Cons
Can't Heat Up Properly
Best Uses
Small Gatherings
Comment:
I use this about 12-20 times/year. Use it to feed 5-20 people at a time. I've had it for 3 seasons now.<br /><br />GOOD: very economical. It's sips fuel. Tanks last a long time. The flavor of the food is excellent.<br /><br />BAD: It sips fuel. It cannot attain the BTUs to reach the high temps. I can barely crack 400F in the summer. In the winter maybe 350F. And if you open the lid...forget about it!<br /><br />The low temps have me looking for a new grill. CR did not adequately evaluate this grill. This has not been the first time that CR has disappointed me.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I purchased this because of CR ratings. The cooking part is all good. The construction is lacking. All the Decals started coming off in less than 6 months and I USE A COVER. The Heat Thermometer & Emblem has peeled off. The stainless steel is al pitted. I would not buy the RED brand. My friends bought the Gourmet and have not had the same issues!

This couldn't be more unhelpful. Many of the top rated and recommended grills aren't available in the price and shop section. Why would you show us grills that I can't even buy. Very disappointed I paid for this subscription...Cancel next month for sure.
