Check out the why Char-Broil’s heating system rocks!

According to the company the Char-Broil is designed and engineered with “Flame Tamers”, or heat distribution plates, that delivers even heating, easier clean up, flare-up resistance.

The four main grilling burners use a powerful 10,000 BTUs each to take on any grilling task, and are backed up bitsy a 15,000 sear burner that puts the perfect high-temp sear on everything from thin steaks to whole chickens.

Food can be cooked at high heats directly over the burners, or indirectly between burners or lowering or turning off the center burners.

A 12,000 BTU side burner can heat as much as 6 quarts and makes preparing sauces and side dishes while grilling a snap.

Front mounted stainless steel controls allow you to adjust temperatures on individual burners, and a thermometer built into the hood allows you to monitor the roasting temperatures in the oven space.

Cooking for a crowd?

The Char-Broil 463214212 5-Burner Gas Grill has a generous 500 square inch main grill area that heats evenly enough to pack the grill to its edges. A 180 inch warming rack is wide enough to hold whole ears of unshucked corn and sturdy enough to slow roast a dozen baked potatoes.

The cooking grates are made from porcelain-enameled cast iron. You’ll get a sturdy grill surface that will never rust out and you can stack to the edges.

PROS—Customer comments.

According to the reviewers of the Char-Broil, assembly is simple and only requires a pair of pliers and a screwdriver. It takes longer to lay out the parts than it does to put them together. It cooks steaks with the quality of top steak houses. It’s built very sturdy with the stylishness of all stainless steel. It custom cooks all types of foods with its very even heating surface and 4 burners for custom adjustments. It’s very easy to move around and it has great storage capacity. The searing burner puts that final perfect touch on steaks, while the cast iron grilling rack stamps them with gorgeous sear marks.

CONS—Customer comments.

The lid is a little low for rotisserie cooking. A large chicken will scrape on the lid unless you lower the rotisserie rod. It would be nice if it came with a longer warranty.
