I was torn between buying the Fiesta versus the 40,000 BTU Charbroil with the cast iron cooking grids--675" cooking area. Ultimately I decided to go with the Fiesta--it would have been a no brainer if Fiesta used the non-porcelain coated cast iron grids like the Charbroil but I still went with the Fiesta. So far so good. I've used it about 6 times and have cooked steaks, burgers, and chicken on the grill. It does get extremely hot quickly and does an excellent job of cooking evenly. Also, one look at the inside of this grill and you can tell it's built to last. In my opinion the overally grill, burners, and storage cart are superior to Charbroils similar model--the only negative--the porcelain coated cast iron tends to be a pain to clean up for me since I can't use a brass brush for fear of chipping the porcelain. Other than that I have a feeling this grill will last well beyond 5 years.

Review 2 for Chef Approved Cabinet Style Gas Grill with Bonus Grill Cover
We have used a charcoal grill for years. We tried a gas grill years ago & all it did was burn the food. However we got this grill on 5/28/06 & have used it 3 days in a row. We love it & we got a free grill cover, propane gas tank & free propane gas for it. Got to put it on the promotion also. The food taste wonderful & my husband didn't burn one thing. The grill is easy to operate & you get to eat in less time than a charcoal grill. I would recomend this grill to anyone and the price wasn't bad either.

Fiesta Grill Review
PostedJuly 5, 2006
No, I do not recommend this product.
This grill looks good and also cooks evenly and good. However, I think a safety hazard exists which should be considered. The aluminum handle becomes extremely hot to the touch and you must use a mitt or something else to open the top. If you are using all 3 burners it even becomes hotter. Something to consider if you have children or must remember yourself to advod getting burned.
