Best Gas Grills to Buy at Walmart
Stellar options from Cuisinart, Expert Grill, Weber, and other brands—plus one gas grill to avoid
You can find some terrific gas grills at your local hardware store and a dizzying array of options at home centers like Home Depot and Lowe’s. Then there’s Walmart and other discount stores, which ring up about a quarter of all grill sales.
Walmart has a broad offering of gas grill models in stores and online, with dozens of options that include free delivery.
Attention, Walmart Shoppers
Consumer Reports’ secret shoppers offer these tips for a better shopping experience at Walmart.
• Check inventory online before you head to the store. The grill you want might be in a store near you. If not, Walmart will ship it to a store where you can pick it up, and you won’t have to pay a shipping fee.
• Check the grill’s dimensions. You can do this on Walmart’s site or on the grill’s summary page in our gas grill ratings.
• Check your cargo space. Walmart offers free assembly but doesn’t deliver assembled grills to residences. You’ll need an SUV or a pickup to haul an assembled grill home. Walmart doesn’t rent trucks.
• Check to see if a grill has free two-day shipping. You’ll see this called out on Walmart’s website.
• Check the box before you start assembling the grill. Make sure all the parts are included and not broken or damaged. If something is missing, call Walmart’s customer service (800-925-6278). If the wait for a replacement part is too long, call the manufacturer directly to see whether it can be shipped sooner.

Some of the models below are exclusive to Walmart. But don’t assume that Walmart will always offer the best deal on other options. It’s possible that competing retailers might stock the same model at a lower price.
