Char-Broil Quickset Two-Burner Grill

Rating: 2 out of 5
  • Currently 2.0/5.0

I have wanted to purchase a propane grill for a while so when I saw this Char-Broil Quickset Two-Burner Grill on sale at my local Lowe's store I was thinking that no time like the present would be more perfect for me to try this grill. Let me say that this is an entry level grill that only offers 265 sq. inches of cooking area with a 25,500 BTU on its main burner.

I owned a charcoal grill that I would use about 4 to 6 times a month to cook everything from beef, pork, chicken, vegetables, and seafood. I wanted to see if my family and I enjoyed the flavor of propane over the flavor of charcoal cooking. Also I wanted to see if I would save money by using propane instead of constantly buying charcoal and lighter fluid.

As far as taste I believe we all agreed that we enjoy the flavor that comes from cooking with charcoal over propane. Now saving money on charcoal has been great, I would spend over $20 bucks a month buying charcoal and now one tank of propane last me about two months which cost about $15 bucks at our local grocery store.

I had the grill about 3 to 4 years now and have had to replace the burners because there is no way to protect the burners when you are cooking your food. I also had to replace the wire cooking grate which lasted about 1 year and the starter which lasted about 2 years. Overall I have spent about $25 dollars on replacement parts which is about 1/3 of the total price I paid for the Char-Broil Quickset Two-Burner Grill.

If I had to do it over I would never have bought this cheap grill.I would have saved more money and got a grill that would be more durable and give more cooking area. I give this grill a 2 star rating out of 5. If you are in the market for a propane grill spend the extra money and get a better one.
