One of the best gas grills for $400 to $700.

If your budget for a new grill spans $400 to $700, you'll have a bevy of choices from big name brands like Weber, Member's Mark, and Char-Broil with features that make outdoor cooking a pleasure. 

"This price range is where you really see your options start to open up," says Mark Allwood, a Consumer Reports market analyst who oversees gas grills. You can get a top-of-the-line small or midsized grill, or a solidly built large model. You'll also see higher quality stainless steel, and more of it. Expect improved quality of construction, too.

"Just don't expect lots of bells and whistles if you go big—you'd have to spend close to $1,000 for most top-tier large grills with the same features," Allwood says.
