About this item

Think small - but grill big - with the convenience of America's favorite electric grill! The Char-Broil Patio Bistro 240 TRU-Infrared Electric Grill is ideal for those who live in smaller homes, apartments, condos, or anywhere else where gas and charcoal grills aren't a safe option. With a precision temperature dial control, featuring a light ring that illuminates when the grill is on and hot, and a lid-mounted 550-degree temperature gauge, the Patio Bistro 240 gives you complete command over the TRU-Infrared cooking system's wide temperature range, from low and slow roasting to extremely hot, searing heat. The electric burner offers 1750 Watts of grilling power, heating up quickly to grill delicious fish, chicken, vegetables, and more whenever you desire. With 320 square inches of total cooking space, the Patio Bistro can handle up to 9 burgers at once! The porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grate offers 240 square inches of primary cooking space with an additional 80 square inches of secondary cooking space on a convenient warming rack; this warming rack sits higher up inside the grill, providing space to keep faster-cooking foods, like veggies, warm and juicy while the rest of the food finishes cooking. An easy access grease tray makes cleanup a simple process and a chrome-plated storage rack helps keep your tools and accessories organized. The Patio Bistro 240 also features 2 folding side shelves for extra work space, cord management in back, and 2 wheels that allow you to move the grill easily around your patio and in or out of storage. This compact grill weighs 54 pounds and measures 25.6"L x 39.8"W x 39.8"H. Minimal assembly is required; approximate assembly time is 30 minutes.

I bought this from Target - not a free sample for this review. Note - you have to assemble most of it yourself so don't be shocked when you open the box. It took some time to put it together. The finished product looks great and is sturdy. I have not yet been able to actually grill with it because a...see moreof the reviewer's review

Great purchase! I got this for my fiance's birthday -- he loves grilling, but we recently moved into an apartment complex that prohibits fire grills on patios. Luckily, I found this; the food turns out juicier than it does using charcoal, works even better than the real thing! Very happy about this ...see moreof the reviewer's review

We wanted an electric grill to use so we didn't have to lug around the heavy gas tanks, we already have the Charbroil Commercia Gas Infrared grill for several years and love it. Our grill took us about 2 hrs to assemble, it's not hard, we just took our time. It's Nov and the weather has been rain...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a different way of grilling compared to the "traditonal" way that we are used to. I do enjoy it and have enjoyed the results. It can be used indoors or outside with an extension cord. (I chose the latter) It gave the same feel as though you were grilling as normal. I was surprised at how gre...see moreof the reviewer's review

The box is heavy and it takes up to an hour or a little more to assemble, in the end it looks really nice! The instructions are very easy to follow. The materials are good quality and is very firm.

This grill is one of the most aesthetically pleasing that I've seen. Although, relatively easy to assemble, it takes good 30-45 minutes to put it together. Instructions are well written and easy to follow. You just need a phillips head screw driver and a small wrench. When using for the first time, ...see moreof the reviewer's review
