    Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Patio Bistro 240 Electric (Urban Moss) - Model 12601663 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Grill I love the way it cooks, I love the simplicity of the grill - just plug it in and you are good to go!! It is small, but holds a lot of food and all evenly cooked. I would highly recommend this grill to any one. I have mine on the deck right outside of our kitchen and use it all year round. I love not hassling with gas, charcoal or propane.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only lasted 2 years. From the very start the temp gauge would reflect temps that were not true to the setting and actual temp of the grill. It made cooking meat difficult and scary. This was without the use of a extension cord. I use the grill 2-3 a week, living in an apartment this is the only type grill you are allowed to have (no gas, no charcoal). After exactly 2 years and 1 month of purchase, both the element has cracks and the power source prong has created a whole. This too is with proper use and storage in the house when not in use. I paid,just under $200 at Lowes. Now the placement parts are $100+ just for the two of them. It's too expensive to last only two years. I've owned only electric grills for over 20 years.
