Is it Possible to Buy a Good Grill for $300 or Less?


From Consumer Reports

When the weather turns warm, we tend to move our entertaining outdoors. Grilling with family and friends is a great way to spend a summer evening, but how much should you spend on a grill? We’re no experts, so we checked out what Consumer Reports had to say about grills. They tested over 100 gas grills to find the best and worst. Our tests included portable, small, midsized, and large gas grills, ranging from $140 to $2,600. They're from Weber, Char-Broil, Brinkmann, Kenmore, Napoleon, Vermont Castings, and other brands.

"Performance wasn’t always tied to price, but features, construction, and warranty often were,” their report stated.

Although grills can get expensive, the good news is that the pros at Consumer Reports have several recommendations for $300 or less.
