These impressive high-end models are built to last

A Napoleon grill, one of the best grills for $1,000 and up

Spending $1,000 or more on a gas grill opens up your choices to beautifully built, large models packed with features such as interior lighting, a pull-out garbage bin, built-in storage, and more. Rotisserie lamb, anyone?

Consumer Reports tests dozens of new gas grill models each year, in every price range. This year, we’ve already tested 15, and our test engineers are in the process of building and assessing dozens more in our labs. 

Below, we’ve compiled a list of the very best gas grills for $1,000 and up, in small, medium, and large sizes. If you’re unsure which size you need, or which features matter, start with our gas grill buying guide. CR members can also jump right into our grill ratings to compare models

More on gas grills

“In addition to having lots of features, nearly any grill you buy for $1,000 or more will also have an optional kit allowing you to convert it to run on natural gas,” says Mark Allwood, the market analyst who covers grills for Consumer Reports. “You’ll have the added expense of running a gas line outdoors, but that may be worthwhile with a pricier grill, because you’ll probably have that grill for years.”

We currently have more than 200 gas models in our grill ratings, more than 40 of which are priced at $1,000 or more. Those featured here include some of the very best from that tier.
