About This Brand
Like Vermont Castings grills, Napoleon outdoor cookers are made in Canada. The "heart" of Napoleon grills is the 304 stainless-steel, reversible cooking rods, called WAVE cooking grids. The grills also have a charcoal tray and range in price from $380 to $2,500. Almost all have a natural-gas version. Napoleon also markets the Ultra Chef line of grills.
Features & Specs - Napoleon Prestige Pro 665RSIB
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.
Coated-cast-iron grates The grill's primary cooking grates may be made of porcelain coated cast-iron, which generally sears meats better and keeps grilling temperatures more consistent than grates made of porcelain coated steel. The porcelain coating usually makes such grates easier to clean than other surfaces, and the grates should resist rust as long as their porcelain coating isn't chipped.
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.

Long-warranty burners While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.
Side burner A side burner, which resembles a gas-stove burner and has its own heat control, is handy if you want to cook vegetables or sauce without leaving the grill. A side burner could also be an infrared burner used for searing.
Infrared burner Gas burner that uses infrared technology (ceramic burner, plates and screens, or troughs as some examples) for cooking. An indirect flame is used for cooking food. Burner can be located as the main burner, side burner, rotisserie burner, or any combination of burners.
When looking for the perfect grill for our patio it came down to the PRO665RSIB and an Alfresco ALX2 42 on a cart (a huge price difference, but I wanted to buy one grill for the next decade or more and be done with it, so I looked at both closely). I had the chance to cook on demo models of both at a local retailer and was blown away at the quality of cook the 665 gave me.<br /><br />Every feature from the integrated smoker box, integrated cutting board and ice bucket, infrared sear burner, and infrared read rotisserie burner made this cooker a no-brainer when it came to versatility. The build quality is excellent and the small features like lit interior storage and soft close doors made me really question why I would spend thousands more when this grill had it all and then some.<br /><br />The PRO665RSIB is a wonderful fit for us and the customer support has been excellent from our dealer. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.<br /><br />* One note, Consumer Reports has listed that there is no natural gas model which is not true. It is available in propane or natural gas (I bought a propane model as I don't have natural gas plumbed on my patio).
