Some of the best gas grills for sale at Lowe's

Walk into any home improvement center and you’ll see an armada of grills—a sure sign of spring. Home Depot and Lowe’s alone account for more than 50 percent of gas grills sold in the U.S. Consumer Reports’ secret shoppers buy grills there, too, ensuring that we test the same grills you’ll see in stores.

More on grills

Lowe’s offers more than 100 gas grills in stores and online. 

“Lowe’s offers one of the broadest selections from Broil-King and Char-Broil, two brands that are exceptionally popular with CR members,” says CR market analyst Mark Allwood. “But don’t buy based upon those brand names alone—not all their models fare well in our tests.”

If Lowe's is your go-to spot, this CR reference guide will help you narrow your selection and steer clear of the losers. 

If you plan on shopping for your next grill at Home Depot or Walmart, we’ve got you covered there, too: Check out our expert picks for the best gas grills at Home Depot and the best gas grills at Walmart.

If You Buy a Gas Grill at Lowe’s

Consumer Reports’ secret shoppers offer these tips for a better shopping experience at Lowe’s. 

In a Store
• Check inventory online before you shop. The grill you want might be in a store near you. If it’s not, Lowe’s will ship it free of charge to a store where you can pick it up.

Check the grill’s dimensions on Lowe’s website or on the grill’s summary page in our gas grill ratings. Lowe’s offers free assembly of full-sized grills and says its stores usually have assembled grills on hand.

Check your cargo space. Lowe’s will deliver the assembled grill to your home free of charge if it costs $499 or more. Otherwise you’ll pay a delivery fee, or you can haul the grill home yourself. (If your car is not big enough, you can rent a truck at some store locations for $19 for the first 75 minutes.)

Online
Check the box before you start assembling the grill to make sure all the parts are included and not broken or damaged. If something is missing, call Lowe’s customer service (800-445-6937). If the wait for a replacement part is too long, call the manufacturer directly to see whether you can get it sooner.

Best Gas Grills at Lowe's

We test grills from nearly every brand sold at Lowe's, including: Weber, Char-Broil, KitchenAid, Huntington, and Dyna-Glo.

One of the models below is exclusive to Lowe's. But for the rest, don't assume that Lowe's will always offer the best deal—it's possible that competing retailers might stock the same model at a lower price.
