Review

This next model in review is the best portable stainless steel grill on the market. The Masterbuilt Smoke Hollow PT300B Propane Grill is an awesome tailgate or camping buddy for grilling tasty food on the go.

It is designed with foldable legs for making transportation of the grill much simpler. With a 10,000 BTU output “U” burner this small thing packs a punch.

What Customers are Saying

Consumers are generally satisfied with this grill from Masterbuilt, but there are a few negative responses to it.

Some praise the product for providing quality cooking on the go but others have had repetitive issues with ignition and sustained flame height. Though fear not, the positive reviews far outnumber the negative.

Pros

  • Miniature design is intended for ease of portability and is great for camping, tailgating, etc.
  • Easy start, one-button ignition makes the grill supremely easy to start

Cons

  • There is only one burner and the grill has a much smaller cooking surface than traditional sized grills

Conclusion

The Masterbuilt Smoke Hollow PT300B Propane Grill is an awesome grill for moments and activities on the go. Its foldable design adds to its portability and it provides solid cooking power from a single burner.

Review

Next up at the seventh spot on the stainless steel propane grill reviews is the Giantex Propane Tabletop Gas Grill. This portable grill is similar to the Masterbuilt model reviewed previously except that it has two burners instead of one.

This grill too has a foldable design, but it goes one step further than the Masterbuilt model with a lockable lid, making transportation even easier and safer.

What Customers are Saying

As with most of the grills on this list, consumers are largely satisfied with this Giantex Propane Tabletop Gas Grill. One consumer even says this model is every bit as nice as the more expensive models. It is noted as providing even heat and plenty of heat at that.

Pros

  • Foldable design and lockable lid makes for ease of portability (great for camping, tailgating, etc.)
  • Easy start, push-and-turn ignitors makes the grill supremely easy to start

Cons

This model is a small, portable grill with a foldable design and lockable lid for easier portability and safer transportation. As with the Giantex model, this portable grill has two burners.

What Customers are Saying

Consumers love this portable grill from Megamaster. It is noted as being the perfect size and having easy temperature control. Overall, consumers call a quality value package in a small product.

Review

The next model in the stainless steel outdoor grills reviews is another standard sized grill. The Char-Broil Signature TRU-Infrared 525 is a strongly constructed, four burner grill.

This grill from Char-Broil also has the additional burner on the right side table that has come to be the standard for larger grills (totaling five burners in the entire unit). This model also sports a humongous 525 square inch cooking surface, allowing you to grill up a feast.

What Customers are Saying

Consumers are big fans of the infrared technology utilized by this Char-Broil grill. Some consumers call the grill super high quality and a top-notch grill. However, one thing to note is there are a few consumers who mention rust issues.

Review

The ninth model in the stainless steel barbecue grill reviews is the Royal Gourmet Mirage MG6001-R. This grill is an absolute monster of a grill. There is a dual lid system where the grill is split into two sections for specialized food grilling.

The grill itself sports six burners and an additional side burner, totaling seven burners in the unit. Additionally, the enclosed storage below the grill rack is separated into four sections.

What Customers are Saying

Consumers are mostly satisfied with this grill but there are notes of grill material deterioration after extended use. However, with proper care, they are issues that can be avoided throughout the grills life. Most consider it an awesome grill with high quality grilling efficiency.

Factors to Consider When Buying Stainless Steel Grills

The following is a list of factors to consider when buying a stainless steel grill:

Number of burners:

As we can see from these stainless steel gas grill reviews, the number of burners in a grill can drastically change its consumer appeal.

For instance, most people would choose the two burner portable grill rather than the single burner grill of the same nature. The number of burners directly affects how much heat is reaching your food.

Additionally, the number of burners usually translates directly to cooking surface space, where an increase in burner numbers usually means an increase in cooking surface.

SizeTotal cooking surface:

Bouncing off of the previous factor of burners, the total cooking surface is a factor to consider. As a general notion, larger cooking surface translates into a more powerful grill.

However, not all people need the largest grill, and that does not mean a smaller cooking surface makes a poorer grill. On the other hand, if you have a large family or are the entertaining type, a grill with a large cooking surface is likely your target. For this reason, the total cooking surface is an important factor to consider.

Charcoal Pellet Gas SmokersBTU output:

The next factor to consider when buying the best all stainless steel grill is the BTU output of the burners. There are a few models reviews here where the BTU output is not explicitly stated. However, most models will share the BTU output of their burners somewhere in the description.

Megamaster 820-0033M Propane Gas Grill, Stainless Steel

General rule of thumb: larger BTU output translates into more heating power. Therefore, models with higher BTU outputs are going to outperform lesser BTU outputs models in terms of heating evenly and efficiently.

Also, for the steak sear-ers among us, high BTU output will get the grill as hot as you need it.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the best stainless steel grills can be hard to pick from a lineup. By reading these reviews of high quality barbecue grills you are now more prepared to step into the market and make a conscientious buying decision.

The Weber 61006001 Genesis II is a phenomenal example of a high value package at an affordable price. However, it is not the only model of its kind out there! There are plenty of viable options such as those found in the aforementioned descriptions.

We have analyzed the BTU output, size, number of burners, etc. for both standard style and portable grills. You are now armed with this new knowledge of stainless steel grills. Now is the time to get out there and get yours today while the sale season rolls strong!
