Most and Least Reliable Gas Grill Brands
How to find a grill model that lasts, based on insights from tens of thousands of CR members
Gas grills take a real beating. You’d never expect your fridge to hum along smoothly after you shifted it around your deck, moved it in and out of your garage twice a year, or left it out in the rain. But we subject our gas grills to exactly that—and still expect them to light up effortlessly and sear our burgers and brats without a hitch. It’s no wonder so many brands disappoint. Fortunately, we know that a fair number are, in fact, up to that challenge based on data from our member surveys.
While our test engineers assess dozens of models for performance each year, our survey department asks thousands of members about their own gas grills, looking for the brands that hold up well over time. If you’re in the market for a reliable one, start with our grill buying guide. CR members can also jump to our gas grill ratings, which include hundreds of models.
