The Weber Genesis II, one of the best gas grills in the $700 to $1,000 price category

You can expect quite a bit more from a gas grill in this price range than you can get for just $100 less. Most models should be well-built, and some small and midsized contenders will be packed with premium features. 

Consumer Reports tests dozens of new gas grill models each year, at every price level. This year we’ve already tested about 15, and our test experts are currently buying, building, and assessing more in our labs.

“You’ll see smart capabilities, pullout propane tank shelves, and design informed by pro-style ranges,” says Mark Allwood, the market analyst who oversees grills for Consumer Reports. Most models in this category can be converted to run on natural gas, which makes sense. (If you’re serious about grilling, you don’t want to be constantly running errands for propane.) You’ll also see quality stainless steel, premium features, and superior quality of construction.

There are currently almost 200 gas models in our grill ratings, with plenty of options for $700 to $1,000. Those featured here include some of the very best from that group.
