. If you are looking to buy a grill, you are probably wondering how to get the best grill within your budget. The experts at Boston Appliance have put together a short list of things to look out for. We want you to be happy with your grill for years to come!
1) Get Brass, Ceramic, Or Infrared Burners
The best burners are made of brass, ceramic brickettes, or infrared technology. These burners produce and retain heat efficiently and cook food wonderfully. Of course, charcoal grills are in another league entirely. If you’re wondering whether you should get a charcoal or gas grill, read our article on charcoal vs gas grills.
2) Look For a Brand That Produces Durable Grills
This tip is mostly self-evident. But if you find a grill on the market with all of the bells and whistles you could ever dream of, with less-than-trustworthy construction, we urge you to resist the purchase! Especially in the Boston and New England area, outdoor grills can experience significant wear and tear due to weather and use. Find trusted brands that are known for well-build products. You won’t regret it years from now, when your grill still looks great and works just as well as the day you bought it. We recommend Weber or Lynx.
3) Grills With 100 BTUs Per Square Inch Cook Better
No matter how impressively burners are constructed, your outdoor grill won’t perform at its best without great power output. Pay attention to the BTUs of the burners on grills. Rule of thumb: there should be approximately 100 BTUs for every square inch. It’s a trade off though, because more BTUs means more fuel or energy usage.
4) It’s a Grill, Not a Space Rocket
Your dream grill may have advanced technology, but it shouldn’t be complicated to operate or to clean. Even if it promises to cook your steak in minutes, it may take an hour to clean. Find a grill that is straightforward to operate and clean, and you’ll find yourself enjoying more time with your family rather than spending time tending to your grill.
5) The Warranty Matters
How long will you have complete peace of mind for your grill? Especially if you and your family tend to use the grill frequently, find one with a stellar warranty. That way, if you have any issues, you can fix it quickly without hurting your wallet.
