Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on gas grill models like the 16156.

Stainless-steel grates:
Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.

Natural-gas version available:
Many gas (that is, propane gas) grills also come in a natural-gas version, usually with a different model number that includes an "N" for natural gas. Some models have a conversion kit (as standard or optional equipment) that requires some modification to a propane grill in order to use it with natural gas. If you're unfamiliar or uncomfortable with these modifications, you may need to hire a professional to do the job; your retailer should be able to help with arrangements. The grill also would, of course, require its own gas line.

All or mostly stainless:
Includes more than just a panel or other trim. Based on our limited tests, nonmagnetic stainless is less likely to corrode.
