Rated 5 out of 5 by from We purchased this BBQ about 6 months ago, upon recommendation of a friend. We were tired of having to refill the propane tanks, not knowing when they were about to empty and ruin our half cooked meals. Honestly, there is no difference in the taste of the food and the convenience is outstanding. I would highly recommend this electric BBQ hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so glad we got this! I bought this for my husband for Father's Day, and we've already used it several times. We had a kettle grill for decades, but hadn't used it for the last several years because there are just the two of us, and it was too much hassle to heat it up for the minimal amount of cooking we would have used it for, plus I was concerned about safety. This small electric grill is absolutely perfect for us. We've done brats, burgers, chicken legs and chicken breasts so far - and everything was perfect - and I am an electric grilling newbie!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great little grill except I really like this grill except: The heat: (1.) If you Open the hood the temp drops considerably. (2.) We had a previous model from Char-Broil that had another shelf below the burner with Bricketts on it. That really helped with heat loss. I was wondering if there was a something like that I could get for this model. (3.) You really shouldn't use an extension cord with this grill because a longer cord will affect the amperage which affects the maximum temp. (4.) You should plug this or any electric grill into a circuit that doesn't have much else plugged into it or you will trip circuit breakers. I have a dedicated circuit that only goes to the area of the grill.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked the old one better I had the old style patio bistro for many years. The only bad thing about was the cover. It had no hinge, so you had to set it down somewhere and that left Greeze rings. The new one is hinged , but the infered heat cannot be controlled. It's like its on wide open all the time. The company sent me a new controller , but it's the same. Also the thermometer is not accurate like the old one. We don't use as much as we did the old one.

We got this grill and we find cleaning the cooking grate very difficult. Is there possibility the company to make stainless steel grate for this electrical grill. Thank you.

Asked by: Dora
We're sorry to hear this. At this time there is not a stainless steel grate that will fit your Patio Bistro. To best clean the cooking grate in this grill we recommend using a nylon grill brush with biodegradable grill cleaner. Please follow this link ( to view all of the brushes available on our site.

Ref: Charliex question: 3 Days ago on differences between 126xxxx and 156xxxx models. What improvements were made in the newer 156xxxx models?

Asked by: Charliex
Both of these Electric Patio Bistro Grills utilize the same cooking grate, heating element and controller. The main difference is that model # 15601559 is a newer 2015 grill and model # 12601559 is a 2012 grill.
