KitchenAid is one of the most trusted names in cooking equipment. Unfortunately, this grill has very little to do with KitchenAid. The name is licensed and slapped on the front of this shiny, discount gas grill. I just want to make sure that you don’t think that you are buying a KitchenAid product when you buy this grill. You aren’t.

As for the grill itself, this is a big, shiny 4-burner gas grill from a company called Nexgrill. This is a powerful grill. You get a maximum of 40,000 BTUs under 422 square inches of primary grilling surface. That’s pretty good. You also get a 15,000 BTU infrared side burner. Theoretically, you would use this for searing, but it does make a hard-to-clean mess if you do. In the back of the grill is a 13,000 BTU infrared rotisserie burner. Note that the rotisserie kit for this grill is sold separately and costs nearly $90USD. Not much of a bargain there.

The KitchenAid 4-Burner Gas Grill looks all stainless from the front, but the side and back panels as well as the cooking chamber are porcelain-coated steel. The truth is, this would be a better quality grill if the exterior was black and the cooking chamber was stainless but looks matter. In fact, this grill is designed to look very good and impressive. Large and shiny, this grill weighs around 150 pounds, which isn’t bad, but there is little here that has much quality to it.

The Bottom Line

Home Depot is great at making things look almost good enough to buy. They are the primary carrier of the KitchenAid grills, so they get to say a lot about its appearance, features, and price. Marketing designed this grill, not engineers. It’s okay, but there are certainly better grills out there.
