abunda_amazon_reviews Used it 3 times and the both burner knobs are already malfunctioning. Emails to Cuisnart go unanswered AND phone calls are NOT accepted. So, how in the world will this thing get fixed? There is nothing worst than NO customer support. Can't figure out why both knobs feel like they are stripped and just spin around. The upside I guess is I might get 4 bucks in scrap for it! UPDATE:::: Cuisinart finally got back to me. They do Not provide support for this item. Support is provided by the "Fulham Group". Once I spoke to them, they sent me out to new knobs. They admitted that they have had many complaints regarding these knobs. They strip out extremely easy. I was told they are going to look into addressing that concern. Apparently they have had more than 2 dozen complaints of the knobs stripping right off. Bottom line, if you don't push the knob in while turning, they strip immediately. Hope they get that fixed.;;September 12, 2017;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;There is nothing worst than NO customer support;;Dennis;;;Me: A foodie dad in the USA who loves to grill and has a couple decades of experience with serious grilling, smoking and outdoor roasting, up to and including whole hogs. Also, I'm an engineering geek that notices things that many less technical people overlook. You: Somebody who wonders if a portable grill is worth owning. My review: (This first review is being written after owning the grill for a week and using it several times. I promise to post updates as regards durability or other emerging issues) I like this grill, and here's why. It's well built. All stainless, quality fittings, includes a heavy gauge propane fitting (note: uses a standard 20lb propane tank, not a camp bottle). It zooms up to 600 degrees (F) in less than ten minutes, and cools to the point I can remove the grate with my bare hand within twenty minutes after I turn it off. The built-in thermometer is accurate and agile (it reflected with perfect accuracy that it was 100F in the Carolinas the first day I set it up). Initial setup required no tools and was no more difficult than unboxing, unfolding, and placing the burner covers and cooking grill in the right place. My first cook were some gigantic boneless chicken breasts I bought at Sams. I thought they were big in the store, but when I removed them from the package for marinating, I double-checked to make sure they weren't turkey breasts... more than an inch thick at the wing-turn even after I broke them out for grilling. I was able to cook them perfectly with the right amount of char by paying attention... even with vegetables on the grill beside them. Steaks were next, and I got a perfect medium rare NY strip in 8 min after preheat. Every working surface is stainless steel, even the burner shields and the bottom of the oven, which makes cleanup easy. The legs fold up and the lid latches to the side, so that you can carry the grill like a suitcase and store it either horizontally or vertically (like you'd store a suitcase). When they say tabletop, they aren't kidding. I stuck a thermometer on the table under the grill after it was preheated to see how much heat transferred. The air temperature rated only 5 degrees above ambient, and I couldn't detect the difference with my fingers. There is a sealed bottom design with a large capacity, removable (slides out to the side) drip tray (also stainless steel) which collects an estimated 2 quarts of drippings, so there's no reasonable way you could overflow onto your tabletop unless you're cooking 50+ cheap burgers at a go. I'm confident that you could cook 4 steaks and 8 pieces of chicken inside on your dining room table without messing up anything if you disable the smoke detectors. What you need to know: 1. The dome is very shallow. You won't be able to cook a whole ham in here, although a pork shoulder just fits. 2. The stainless steel is well engineered, but light gauge. This is to enhance portability and (undoubtedly) reduce cost of manufacture. This means that it heats up and cools down quickly, which is convenient if you're moving the grill around and cleaning it, but inconvenient if you want to heat up a grill and have it hold its temperature, which leads us to my next point... 3. The light gauge steel plus the shallow dome means that opening the grill top to turn or braise will cost you at least 50F, and often 100F. It only takes 1 minute to regain heat again, but purists should take note. This is why I call it a performance bike. 4. Because it cools quickly and all the surfaces are stainless steel, I was able to serve dinner, eat, and then remove the cooktop, burner covers, and drip tray and put them in the dishwasher along with the rest of the dishes. This was my favorite feature of the grill... I've never had one that I could clean with a dishwasher, and using the same schedule I'd use to clean up the kitchen after dinner. This one feature was worth almost as much as I paid for the grill. 5. Indirect cooking was super easy due to the 2-burner configuration and the shallow dome. You can turn on one side, sear your meat, and then move it to the other side of the grill to finish cooking. When you close the lid with the shallow dome, this works better than it works on a Coleman kettle grill.

Wanted stainless steel because other non stainless steel grills only lasted about 2years in this environment. So far I can only comment on the quality and it's cooking ability. It cooks very well. On hi this grill gets over 700 degrees fast. Good for grilling a nice thick steak. On low it gets a little tricky. If you need very low heat I found lightning only one side on low and cook on the other side of the grill. If I need even lower heat I will prop the lid open a bit. It has a wide range of temperatures if you know how to use it. What I don't like about this grill is that it's kind of flimsy. The stainless steel could be a little thicker. So far this is my only down side. As for longevity only time will tell. So far I like it. UPDATE. DO NOT BUY THIS GRILL! All show, no go. Started using this grill the first week of May. It did not last. Used it on weekdays only and now it's falling apart. Both knobs are broken. They turn but the grill doesn't start and if and when it does you can't adjust the flame. It developed a gas leak. I thought it was the tank but after replacing the tank I realized it was the grill. I did buy an extended warranty on this grill, we will see what they can do.

So far I can only comment on the quality and it's cooking ability. It cooks very well. On hi this grill gets over 700 degrees fast. Good for grilling a nice thick steak. On low it gets a little tricky. If you need very low heat I found lightning only one side on low and cook on the other side of the grill. If I need even lower heat I will prop the lid open a bit. It has a wide range of temperatures if you know how to use it. What I don't like about this grill is that it's kind of flimsy. The stainless steel could be a little thicker. So far this is my only down side. As for longevity only time will tell. So far I like it. UPDATE. DO NOT BUY THIS GRILL! All show, no go. Started using this grill the first week of May. It did not last. Used it on weekdays only and now it's falling apart. Both knobs are broken. They turn but the grill doesn't start and if and when it does you can't adjust the flame. It developed a gas leak. I thought it was the tank but after replacing the tank I realized it was the grill. I did buy an extended warranty on this grill, we will see what they can do. Honestly I don't want a replacement. Will update again after dealing with the warranty company. Save your money and your time.

In using this product, I find it dangerous and unsafe. The bottom beneath the burners is flat and quite shallow. Fat from a product being grilled will grilled will run off to the bottom and catch on fire. It won't drain to the drip pan below and instead will ignite. Flames will engulf the item being grilled and shoot out the sides of the grill. An accident waiting to happen. Amazon states it is beyond the return period of 30 days and will not take it back. I am stuck for $144.00 and another $50 for accessories I purchased through Cuisinart and The Bar-BQ Guys. BUYER BEWARE! Update 8/28 - Amazon refused to take product back because the 30 day return window had passed. They told me to deal with the company that actually sold it. I called the company and they said they could do nothing as it was purchased through Amazon. The gentleman I spoke with agreed with me that the grill was of poor design. Again BUYER BEWARE...... I am really disappointed with Amazon..

Shoddy parts, no support
It's been less than 3 years, and its a rusted out hole at this point. I've already replaced the grate twice, and the flame tamers rusted into oblivion. I've kept this garaged, used it for 4-5 times a year for tailgating, cleaned and put away. It should not be falling apart the way it is. I bought a full-size char-broil grill that i've left out in the elements outside and is in better condition than this cuisinart grill.
