    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Recreational Vehicle lifestyle. We spend the winters in Arizona in a RV Park and this past winter was the first year with my Patio Bistro 180 Electric. Have had many others before: Charcoal, gas, etc and the180 is so convenient. No messy charcoal or running out of gas while cooking. The 180 is cleaner, faster, more convenient, easier to clean grates. Very compact and that is important with RV's. Don't know how I got along without it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Grill For The Lanai We bought this grill because our condo complex does not allow gas or propane grilles. It is the perfect size and cooks everything we put on it. It took us a couple of times to figure out how to adjust the electric setting to grill without over-cooking things, but once we fined tuned that part of the process, we have been able to cook everything from fish to chicken (very moist) to steak (medium every time). We are very pleased with our Patio Bistro electric grill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features We got our Char-Broil and instantly cooked chicken and steaks AND brats on it . We loved the ease at which you can cook on it. Easy to plug it in and easy to clean and you're done !!!!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK The grill is solid. Takes 15-20 minutes to heat to 550. The numbers of dial don't really represent heat. Takes awhile to get the right setting for the temp you want. I don't have anything to compare it to. But for the price and patience you'll be OK. Really tough to use as smoker.

    How do you clean it?

    Asked by: Jmac24
    There are 3 main steps to follow when cleaning your grill properly: 1. Perform the “Burn-Off” Method. Turn the grill on high (with the lid closed) for 15 minutes. This will allow any food particles or debris that is stuck to the grates or other interior grill parts, burn off of the grill. (this is the step that your grill may refer to as “self-cleaning”) 2. After the grill has cooled back down, use our Advanced Cool-Clean Technology brush to brush the remaining particles off of the grates or emitter trays. 3. Wash the interior parts of the grill with a 50/50 mixture of soap and water to ensure that everything is clean of debris. Once the parts are 100% dry, place them back in the grill so that it is ready for use next time! (if the debris is really stuck or rust is appearing, you can use a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water) *To ensure your grates and emitter trays are easy to clean, make sure you season them properly before grilling each time!

    Is there a stand that I can buy so it doesn't have to go on a table? - something similar to the electric version of this?
