Full Review - Crown Verity Estate Series 36-Inch Gas Grill

Crown Verity has been in the cooking appliance business for over a hundred years. Haven't heard of this brand before? That's probably because most of their products fall into the professional kitchen category. However, they do offer a line of outdoor grills, particularly built-in units. The Crown Verity Estate Series 36-Inch is a beautiful grill. It is not an imitation, but an innovation.

Since Crown Verity didn’t set out to make a grill that looked and worked like all the others. The Estate Series grill is simple but powerful. In fact, this is a very powerful gas grill. The five burners can each pump out 15,000 BTUs for a maximum output of 75,000 BTUs under 714 square inches of heavy stainless steel cooking grates. The cooking chamber is large and deep. This produces an even heat and a large dome space above the cooking grates. The lid also fits into the body in such a way as to hold in heat better than many grills.

This grill is not loaded with typical features. There is an internal light, but that is about it. On the other hand, the lid is removable so this grill could be approached from any direction for an open grilling experience. The drip pan is deep and can be filled with water to make cleaning easy. This also adds moisture to the cooking environment. This grill is actually a lot more versatile than it appears at first glance. And it is very well built.

The biggest problem with the Crown Verity grill is its limited distribution. Yes, it can be bought online, and there are some retailers. However, not being a well-known brand, distribution is limited. That is a shame. It’s a great grill and certainly worth considering for any outdoor kitchen application. Crown Verity does have a wide range of outdoor kitchen appliances and cabinetry, so they can fill most any need.
