How do you know that you're buying a product of excellent quality? Well, you often don't. Not until you've had it and used if for awhile. With grills it can be particularly hard to distinguish the cheaply built ones from the great quality ones before it's too late.
To solve this conundrum, Buzzrake collected thousands of opinions about grills from users around the web, to figure out which grills excel above all others when it comes to quality. We analyzed these opinions and came up with some really interesting insights about high quality grills. Well, I hate to break it to you, but when it comes to grills - money *does* buy quality. The highest priced grills ($300+) have the highest quality ratings. What's more, propane grills are scored much higher than charcoal models for quality, as are models that have upgraded featured like a thermometer.
Users find that rust resistance is also common in high quality grills, and that these units are also capable of reaching and maintaining high temperatures consistently.
