Element is rated out of 5 by 5.
Rated 2 out of 5 by GregJ from Worked for a while This worked for me for a while - probably 1 year and 1 day - just enough for the warranty to run out. It was blazing hot - seared steaks so the juices were locked in - great cooking temps etc., then, it started to wane down. Not so hot afterwards. When I came to this site to see how much a new part replacement would be I see where they make their money....I will go buy a new BBQ now -not necessarily a Char-Broil - but certainly not an infared.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scrobbyd from Great Price I love my patio bistro! I just replaced my heating element just do to age wear and tare at a surprisingly great price. However this element tops out at 390 degrees. To ware the original element would easily reach 500 + degree within about 15 minutes roughly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonRon from Very impressed Yes, I love my Carbroil bistro grill. 3 people in my family have bought one after seeing mine. I also love their online service. I used the "chat" on line to help me order a part. I was quite surprised at how easy this was to do. I typed the name of the part I needed, a picture of my part appeared on screen for me to confirm it was the correct part, I added it to my cart and checked out. I received my part within 5 days. wow, what service!! Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy Bowman from You had what we needed and other than the fact the prongs were bent when received it, it works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by christina123 from Element Burned Out This grill heats up fast but does not stay very hot. I had this grill for 10 months and the element burned into after very minimal use. Would not purchase again.

Hello, I'm having problem with my Patio Bistro TRU-Infrared Electric Grill. When I turn it on, I heard popping and I can see a spark and switches off automatically then. I noticed that the spark comes from the element from a very little hole on it.

Why doesn't my element glow a bright red? I've used it twice and have not seen it glow the bright red that I expect. Seems to heat up appropriately, but miss that glow.

We have a Char-Broil Patio Bistro Grill and need a new element. The model number is 29101996. Which element do we need to order?
This model number is for a Patio Bistro lid handle that fits multiple Patio Bistro models. This element will fit most Patio Bistro models as well. To be certain please double check the model number for your grill. It should be located on one of the legs or the bottom of your grill. It will also be on the front cover of the product guide.
