Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot live without it A friend bought a furnished beach condo that came with an electric grill, which he didn't want, so he gave it to us, brand new. We tried it, loved it, used it every night for the next 6 months and basically killed it (note: do not leave cord plugged in on the balcony when you live in Florida, the points get wet/corroded & stop working). So we went right out and bought the larger, Bistro 240 model and continue to use it every night. We barbecue steaks, pork chops, chicken, fish, veggies...everything. Here's a tip: You can buy a metal (iron?) vented box at the hardware store, fill it with mesquite or other flavor wood chips, pour water over it and set it on top of the grill & once the chips heat up and start to smoke a little bit, add your meat/veg & cook. Makes everything taste mui delicioso!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Hot! I bought this infrared patio bistro in red because they didn't have black at the store and I really wanted this grill. Well months later, I've been grilling everything on it to perfection! This grill is amazing! Just plug it in and watch the infrared action cook your food to perfection! The temperature gauge atop is extremely useful and th grease goes right into the drip tray below neatly. There's an abundance of space below to store utensils and other miscellaneous items. I highly recommend purchasing this grill because it is a sound investment that will last you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy BBQ I was a bit reluctant to try an Electric Grill so after purchasing my Char Broil I kept my Gas Grill on hand. I can now say good-bye to the Gas Grill, I love my Electric Char Broil. The only disadvantages that I can find, is it is a bit slower, especially in cold weather, (Below Freezing) saying that, if you plan ahead and turn it on for 15 minutes it performs great. One advantage of being a bit slower, is I have yet to burn anything. It also takes up way less room than my old gas grill and is easier to clean. Plus it is legal to use in many condo's where Gas and Charcoal grills are not allowed.

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 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.

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 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed Thought we would love this...it is our fourth Char-broil grill...the infrared just isn't as good as original electric....does not ever get got enough for steaks, and once you open lid the temp plummets and doesn't recover...such a bummer, we were excited for new grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value/Best Results I have owned one for a few years and love it so much that I am going to order a new one on the 27th of March and give my old one to a relative so they can enjoy the benefits of True-Infrared grilling at its best.

Does the electric patio bistro model 240 have lava rock on a grill below the heating element? Thank you?

Asked by: Maxthecat
We do not recommend using lava rocks with this grill. Instead, we suggest using wood chips. Wood chips add tons of delicious flavors, are easy to use and quick to clean up.

Hi just purchased the char broil patio bistro 240 electric grill. Today will be my first using it. How can I use wood chips without putting on the grill surface? Can I place wet wood chips in foil or can in the bottom underneath the grill?

Asked by: first time user
For the best performance wood chips should be placed directly onto the cooking grate. We would not recommend placing them in the grease tray below the firebox. Give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 for more information.
