Packaged Cast Q Emitter Large is rated out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TomGrill41 from Poor design I really like my grill but this piece is just a bad idea. I clean my grill after every use and have done the required seasoning. The problem is that the tiny holes on this piece get clogged, then the only way to clean it is to literally get a toothpick and punch through the thousands of tiny holes. It also rusts and I've tried a million different things to get the rust removed, but nothing has worked. I've had my grill for about two years, and I've held out as long as possible before replacing these, but honestly I should have replaced these after the first year. So, it is just too expensive to have to spend $50-something dollars every year to replace this part. So, while I do like this grill, I'll probably just go with a different model or a different company next time to save on the cost.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cambria from Too costly and a lot of work to maintain I liked it at first, but you don't get the same grilling experience with infrared as you do with flame. The emitters are high maintenance and need to be cleaned thoroughly after each grilling. They are expensive to replace as I've done several times. I will purchase a different grill come this next summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SBar from Emitters Just Don't Cut It I have been pleased with my with the exception of the emitters. They are impossible to keep rust free. In fact they are heavily rusted. I have had the grill for just over a year and use it 2-5 times per week. The rusting started almost immediately and is unstoppable regardless of the effective I put into the care and maintenance of them. Prior to my first use I seasoned them as directed. I also put canola oil on them before and after each use but to no avail. I opened a case and was told to use vinegar and water on them as well. That too was of no use. The emitters need to be replaced but rather than spend around $100 to buy replacements I will likely start shopping for a different brand of grill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Miami Don1 from Rusting/Failing Emitters This is my second Charbroil grill (my first was a four burner Commercial Series and I now have a three burner Infrared) and love the performance. However, like most I have an issue with the cost and quality of the stainless steel emitters. I am religious about oiling and burning off the food particles after each use and I keep it cover, yet still I have issues with rusty emitters. I've had the grill for almost two years but did not think I would need to replace the. This quickly. If this is an item that needs to be replaced so frequently then they should not cost $25 per panel!!! Is there a more durable product or material that I should be using?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Willnoteverbuycharbroil from Doesn't last! This is the second infrared grill that I own. When I told my wife it was falling apart, she said "you just bought it." I pulled out my owners manual and she was correct. I bought my last one 10/19/13. And yes Char-Broil, I have cleaned and oiled all of the parts. The temperature gauges quit working 6 months ago and the grates are rusting out. Last night the burners would only burn a very low flame. I had company over and had to finish the ribs in the oven. I will never buy one of these grills again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jjones from replacement price very high for emitter panels. although we like the infrared grill for the taste, the emitter panels are extremely hard to clean and you have to clean after just a couple of uses. Replacing just two panels is over $60 which in my opinion is too high. May plan to go back to the standard grill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by John T from Poor quality I like the way it cooks but for a person who BBQ's 5 times a week your products wear out quickly. I have had this grill for about a year and as of this writing the following items are broken. All Emitters falling apart, lighter switch broken, 3 control knobs broken, Out door cover worn out, Wheel broken on base, and all 3 thermomaters broken.

Are the holes on this emitter in the peaks as opposed to my old emitters which have the holes in the valleys?
Yes. The holes are in the peaks in this emitter.

Is the 80021356 infrared emitter the same quality of construction as the one it is replacing (quality/weight of stainless steel)? Why is it better than the one it is replacing?
This stainless steel infrared emitter works with a cast iron grate. The holes in this emitter are in the peaks of the emitter instead of the valleys. Give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 for more information.

I am having the same issue with the infrared emitters. They rust through quickly. At $26 a pop ($52 per pair) this grill is too costly to keep for the long term. Like most I will have to consider another brand, perhaps Weber.

Each emitter is sold individually.

I have a natural gas commercial gril model number 463268806 it is in great. During a annual cleaning I noticed my brass tubes were not connected on the ends the screws are deteriorated and the carry over tubes are rotted. Should I buy both ?
We would recommend replacing both. Each burner is model # 80016864 and each carryover tube is model # 80005592. These parts are available on the Char-Broil site.
