Full Review - Napoleon Prestige Pro 500 Gas Grill

This Napoleon Gas Grill is loaded with all the extras that Napoleon offers and is compatable with a wide range of accessories. While this gas grill sells for around $2,000USD, it has a lot to built into it, including full rotisserie system with an 18,000 BTU rear mounted rotisserie burner and an infrared 'sear zone' side burner. For a little extra you can add Napoleon's heavy charcoal trays and use this grill for either gas or charcoal cooking.

At the heart of any good gas grill is the cooking system. Everything else is just cosmetics. Unfortunately, many grill makers put more flash and substance in their grills. Napoleon, like a small handful of companies, actually makes a good grill. The high-quality stainless steel burners produce a high, even temperature. While the heavy stainless steel rod cooking grates in the wave pattern give excellent heat contact.

This gas grill has high-quality construction, high and even heating. There is also a large body of accessories to go with it. As well as very good support.
