It is perfect for someone that lives in an apartment. If you have a small patio, it works great.
4 Star Review   By Kathy on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

I am pleased with the product. The only problem I had was in the parts I needed. The metal handle for the top was broke in two. Some of the screws and nuts were not useable. It looked like it was cut on an angle and you could not put the nuts on. I am tickled with the overall product and I am looking forward to grilling this summer. I would definitely recommend this grill.

great if you're not allowed a gas grill
4 Star Review   By assemblymomma on Home Depot - May 21, 2013   

We're only allowed electric grills in my HOA, so this is a compact, easy, doable alternative. It does get hot enough for gill marks, but it is a different grilling experience if you've only used gas. I did assembly it myself (over 60, female) but if you could get yours already assembled that would be AWESOME!!!! Grilling surface comes out for easy clean-up.

Grills more than you think
5 Star Review   By DanB on Home Depot - May 7, 2013   

Couldn't be happier with the purchase. Comes with a sleek rain cover that I wasn't aware of when I ordered so that was a nice bonus. The rack on the top is ideal for slow cooking brats or veggies. Was surprised to be able to fit 2 porterhouse and 8 burgers on at the same time.

What a fantastic grill!
5 Star Review   By Lamplighter on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

We have used this grill almost every day since we received it. We have cooked pork chops, burgers, fish, chicken and steak. All when done were moist and tasty. We have the electric version. This is a great grill for a small deck or apartment balcony.

3 Star Review   By MamaBear on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

The box arrived in pretty bad shape. The grill has dings in several places and the red enamel paint is off in a couple of places.

Great little grill
4 Star Review   By jhartmann on Home Depot - Aug 1, 2012   

Heats up fast and cooks like a champ. Controls are a little wonky... feels like its either full blast or below 200 degrees, but for cooking steaks and other quick-cook items, it works great.

Stay Away from this grill
1 Star Review     

Strengths: Noone

Weakness: Waaranty, design, cleaining requirements

After using the PAtio Caddy (now discontnued - very bad move by Charbroil) for almost 2 decades, I had high hopes for this grill. I bought it on Amazon for under $150 and was excited. The assembly was a nightmare - the wheel hubcaps were pre-bolted making it impossible to connect wheels, the grease tray is in the path of the ignition wires, and several other engineering flaws, I was excited to grill up some surf & turf. I use the propane model and the grill grate is NOT porcelain coated and the food was sticking all over desppite using Pam from grilling. I soon found out the the tiny little holes for the IR cooking clog up very fast and it is impossible to clean them. I bought a second grill grate and despite taking adequate precautions (seasoning the grate, sparying the food itself with Pam, running it on high for food debris burn-off after each use, the holes clogged right up making it impossible to use this grill. I tried calling Charbroil and the lines were busy, busy, busy and they do NOT supply an email contact address. So I posted a question on their site and was called back a week later. I was told that the grate must be removed after each use to clean it - this grate is cumbersome and has razor sharp edges and being that I live on the top floor of a condo and have a small patio, there is no room for me to remove the grate and clean it AFTER EACH USE. It sounded like the rep could care less. She was aware of the flaws. I told her I would need a THIRD grate and she would not give me a discount and she stated that there was ONLY A 90-DAY WARRANTY. Being in the service industry and a loyal Charbroil cutomer for 2 decades, I can say with certainty that THIS GRILL SUCKS and the CHARBROIL CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS AND THE WARRANTY SUCKS. I will never buy a Charbroil product again - a 90-day warranty is a joke. I will spend the $499 and buy a Napoleon grill.
