Gas grills can be bought for as little as $100USD or for well over $20,000USD. They are one of the most diverse product lines in the cooking market. On the bottom end, the grills are small, lightweight, tend to be underpowered, and are limited in what they can do. On the top end, temperatures are ridiculous, space is plentiful, and practically anything can be cooked on them. Since price is the biggest consideration when shopping for a new grill, I have broken down my recommendations into ranges. Find the price area you are comfortable with and there you will find the best grills in your price range. Also, these lists of the top grills are continuously updated as new products hit stores and as others disappear. Looking for a Built-in Gas Grill? See the Best Built-in Gas Grills
Price Breakdowns for all Gas Grills
Gas Grills under $250
There are not a lot of gas grills under $250USD these days. While these are the biggest sellers, stores and manufacturers don’t make a lot of profit on them So they want to steer you towards bigger and shinier grills. Look for simple, small, and black if this is what you can spend. Avoid shiny stainless steel and extra features. Side burners can be a nice addition, but they won’t help you grill burgers and hot dogs. These are the two items that these grills are going to be cooking. As basic grills, with limited cooking capabilities, these grills are good enough to get the job done. But don’t expect them to last long, have even heating, or a lot of power.

Gas Grills between $250 and $500
Choices between $250USD and $500 can seem plentiful when looking around the hardware store. But there are many grills that are poor in quality and design. These tend to be impulse purchases for people who have not done their research. Big, shiny grills with five main burners and a host of extras don’t tend to last long, cook well, or offer a lot of power. The gas grills that I have selected in this price range tend to be relatively small and limited in features. It is the quality of the internal components and their ability to produce high temperatures and even heat that makes for a good grill. Most grillers do not need a huge grill, but the size is a big marketing point. Avoid the biggest grills and stick with simple and avoid shiny.
Gas Grills between $500 and $1000
Moving up in the price scale brings bigger, better, and more powerful gas grills. The models on this list produce even heating, little flare-up problems, and can put a serious sear on a steak. While they don’t generally come with a lot of extras, accessories for these grills are plentiful and additions like rotisserie kits can be had to increase their versatility. I still recommend avoiding a lot of shiny metal or grills that are simply too big for their price tags, but there is a lot to choose from here.
Gas Grills between $1000 and $2000
Now we reach the price range of gas grills where we see products that are much more like actual cooking appliances. Here the grills are bigger, more powerful, and potentially loaded with extra features. Don’t, however, believe that even up to $2,000USD is going to get a high-quality, all stainless steel grill that will last for decades. So the question is, do you want an oversized grill loaded with extras or a grill that performs and lasts? This list is organized around the latter. The grills I have selected have high and even heating with a durable body that will eliminate the need to replace the grill in a few years.
Gas Grills between $2000 and $4000
These are some serious gas grills. In this price range, it makes sense to consider all stainless steel construction because the price allows for the best metal. While these might not be the best of the best, they are some fantastic grills on this list. Many of these products come as part of a complete line of outdoor kitchen appliances and all are powerful and many are loaded with extras (or have practically anything you can imagine available for more money). I have filtered out the knock-offs and focused this list of the grills that will do the job, whatever that outdoor cooking job might be.
Gas Grills between $4000 and $8000
Now we really move into the high-end of gas grills. While these are not the most expensive on the market, they offer all the features, quality, and power that anyone could ever need. More expensive gas grills are something of a status symbol. These grills, between $4000USD and $8000, are among the best you can buy. They tell people that you are discerning, rich, and yet not overly ostentatious. All of these grills have plenty of size for any gathering. They all have rotisserie systems and the best quality stainless steel construction. You pay for these grills, but they all deliver.
Gas Grills over $8,000
Here are the best of the best. These gas grills are constructed of the highest quality stainless steel with a wide and impressive array of extras and features. These grills can feed whole football teams, reach incredible cooking temperatures, and do every task imaginable. All of these products can be had as inserts for custom outdoor kitchens and come as part of complete outdoor appliance packages. While this list is for products priced above $8,000, the actual costs can reach beyond $20,000. Expect a lot of these grills, take care of them and many can last a lifetime.
