Comment:
The grill was professionally installed since we needed a tie into our natural gas line so we cant comment on assembly however its heavy duty and 100 percent stainless. So far its been great for grilling we get our steaks cooked up fast and evenly. Heat can be controlled like an oven, we even made pizza on this grill.

I use the grill at the Jersey shore where it is exposed to the weather. My last two grills (including a Weber) rusted after just a few years. Build quality of the Saber seems much better. Also like how fast it gets hot. Great grill.
