Best Gas Grills for $400 or Less
CR's tests find that you don't have to spend a lot to get a solid model
Gas grills can cost as little as $100—or north of $3,000. Paying more generally gets you premium finishes and features, but our tests have found that it doesn’t always get you better performance.
Even with supply chain issues and product shortages, you can find a grill that earns top marks in some of our most crucial tests—for evenness, temperature range, and sturdiness—and rates well for predicted reliability that won’t break the bank. In fact, in the popular $400 and under price range, you can expect to see models from widely sold brands such as Cuisinart, Even Embers, and Monument Grills.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of the very best gas grills for $400 or less in small and medium sizes. And while you won’t find any large grills in our ratings for less than $400, there are a handful that hover just above.
