Portable Patio Bistro® Gas Grill is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great steak, great hamburgers! I just had this thing given to me. And I was showing my buddy this page across the internet when I noticed it had terrible reviews. Yeah if you can't get it to ignite right away you have to reach in and move the electrode just a little bit to be in the gas/flame path. Essentially the gas is headed upward and the electrode is installed just below that path. So yeah I experienced that too but I didn't write the whole thing off. If the ignition system is dead you probably need a fresh battery, or plug the wires in a little more they kind of click into place. Cleaning the grill??? Well I don't really see the problem in the future, it is a bit compact but they supplied a spiky wedge scraper and that so far seems to do just fine. I think it's a great BBQ! It gets warm quick easily up to 500F on setting 3, and stays hot with little gas usage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ignition system I purchased this grill on 5/27/16. I worked fine twice then the ignition system failed. They sent new parts which I installed and it worked fine three times. Failed again. It is either inferior quality parts or design, I just don't know.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE TO CLEAN!! Grates are a nightmare There is no way to clean the grates on this grill. I have seasoned it and have cleaned after each use and lightly oiled again. There is a serious design flaw which causes the good to get stuck and there is no reasonable way to clean the grates. I'm trying to find out if the whole grate can be replaced with a simple grate or cast iron or something that can be cleaned. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap This grill takes to much time to clean. The starter broke after the first month so just used a lighter to light burner. Now the hose started leaking at the tank. Did not know until went through a full 20lb tank. Charbroil is sending a new hose. When out of warranty will buy a weber.

I got a 2nd Hand (but never used,still looks brandnew) Patio Bistro 180 since a couple of days. While inspection, I found out that the 3 screws for removing the burner are impossible to unsrew wihtout damaging. Any idea for an easy solution?

Asked by: GrillAmSee
We're sorry to hear this. Once the heat tent is removed the screws that hold the burner in place should be easily accessible.
