Both have electronic igniters and long burner warranties, which are among Consumer Reports desirable features for gas grills. In the large grills category, top performers included the KitchenAid 720-0709C, $800, and the Master Forge 3218LTN, $600. The KitchenAid, available at Sams Club, was quick to preheat and capable once it did, while the Master Forge, available at Lowes, offered fine performance, mostly stainless-steel styling, a folding prep table, and lots of storage at a relatively low price. Five features that count More grills have convenient features such as electronic igniters, fuel gauges, illuminated control knobs , and fold-down shelves for food prep. Here are five gas-grill features to consider when buying: Electronic igniters are usually easier and more reliable than a rotary or push-button starter. Rounded edges are safer than sharp ones, especially if kids are afoot. To test a grills sturdiness, nudge it in several places, and press down on the side shelf to see if it will support a heavy pot. Burner warranties of 10 years or longer are a plus since burners are the most frequently replaced part. Stainless steel or coated cast-iron grates tend to be better for searing, though stainless is more durable.

Best gas grills in time for summer

Testers apply thermocouples to the grates to measure how evenly a grill distributes heat. Pre-heating is important, too. A recent Consumer Reports reader survey found that most gas grillers preheat their grill for 5 to 10 minutes before cooking. So testers preheat the grills for 10 minutes to see whether thats enough, measuring the temperature and evenness across the grates. Some grills do better than others. Consumer Reports top-rated two Weber grills. The midsized Weber Spirit model SP-32046700401 sells for around $600 and preheats quickly and evenly. So does the smaller Weber Spirit model E-220 46310001 for $450. Both do an excellent job at high and low temperatures, perfect for grilling a summertime feast!
