Gas Grill 420 W/ SB 25500 Btu Smartchef 2017 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool features I am a first time 'griller' and have never used any type of grill in the past. Once the grill was assembled, it did take me a little while to figure out the wifi and confirm the firmware updates that needed to be done. Thankfully I had a strong wifi connection at my house since I live where service can be spotty. I also was glad i had an outlet on the back porch to plug the grill into it (with an extension cord). It was so easy to maintain the heat of the grill with the wi-fi and the charbroil app. the timer and thermometer features were awesome to use so I didn't have to stand in the cold weather. Using this grill was as easy as using an oven inside. the app even let me know when the grill was cooling down. This item was sent as a free sample in exchange for my review.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Char-broil smartchef Unboxed this products overall looks are very sleek with a cool color scheme, I really like the black with red accents. The instructions for seasomimg the grill were easy to follow. While cooking the grill maintained a comsistant even temperature and cooked the meat evenly. The down side to this product is that the smartchef technology is not android capable yet. After talking with Char-Broil customer service they said that the android app should be out in a few months, kind of frustrating. Also it would be nice to have an internal temp thermometer on the grill just in case you have to use manual mode. Overall I cannot rate this product very high due to not being able to test out the smartchef technology yet but i will revise or write a new review when it becomes available for android. Pros: looks great, easy to use, infrared cooking cooks meet quicker and more evenly than a traditional grills. Cons: not android capable yet, no internal temp thermometer display on exterior of grill, smaller cooking surface for such a high price point. This was sent to me as a test unit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close to Perfection I unpacked and set the Smart Chef up on Saturday evening. We invited over about 15 family members in celebration for it. We were very excited. The excitement was short lived. It took a minute to figure out the internals and the high level of sophistication but when we did, we were very impressed! We went to the local home store and got a tank of propane and were ready to go. The unit was sync'd to my IPhone and we were off. Within a minute or two the third burner went out (far right) which shut the whole grill off. We re-calibrated our approach and tried again; same outcome. This happens 4-6 more times before we realized there was an issue and completely left that burner off. The unit sync'd up perfectly after that and we made a memorable meal and night for everyone. We used it to cook dinner numerous night in the past week, burgers, a pork loin, chicken and fish and each time it performed without flaw. If the one takeaway from this is a faulty burner, the technology (being able to put a probe in the meat and walk away and it alerts your phone when it's ready) is spectacular. I was actually giving my daughter a bath and was able to monitor both the tank level and the cooking process via the app as I did. That is HUGE for the tech savvy person and great for someone who doesn't have the time to stand there watching and temp'ing the food for a duration of time. This will certainly make the idea of "let's grill" a welcomed one in our home. This item was sent as a free sample in exchange for my review. As you can see I didn't give it all 5 stars but in weighing out the good and bad, it was one burner away from being perfect. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Grill I've owned The grill was not what I was expecting, in a good way. I first noticed how heavy the grill and parts were. It is made to last and not like other grills I've owned. It isn't made out of cheap materials but is very durable. Setup could be a little easier but overall very happy. The food came out tasting great. You can follow easy step by step guides to cool specific items. The app is the best part of this grill. It not only guides you through every step of grilling, it also gives you notifications for when to flip the meat and what the real time internal temperature is. I will not go back to using a non wifi grill as this makes every item I cook perfect. This item was sent as a free sample in exchange for my review.

Grill won't lite?. Have 20 people waiting on burgers and nothing! Worked fine first three times, now nothing?! Side burner works, it connects to wifi, simply will no lite ...........

Asked by: Chris021
When all else it the old fashion way with a gas lighter or match. I had to light ours with a match when the battery in the igniter died and I didn't have the correct size battery on hand. Hope you get the problem solved okay. Lighting w/match or lighter isn't easy or fun, at least it's an option.
