The main cooking deck of this grill comprises of a cooking grid made out of stainless steel that uses crossbars with a 7 mm width. Combine that with the Even-Heat cooking system proprietary to Nexgrill and you have a very even cooking surface. As you already know, an even cooking surface is one of the most sought-after features in a grill as it allows the barbeque master to organize, time and cook with great efficiency.

Like all the other Nexgrill gas grills out there, this 4 burner grill also uses angled flame tamers to prevent flare ups. Besides avoiding flare ups, these angled burners also do a fantastic job of vaporizing small drippings. These vapors then convert to a deliciously smoky flavor and aroma that engrains into the meat and vegetables that you cook on this grill.

The conveniently placed upper warming rack is very convenient to keep buns and hot dog rolls nice and toasty, so you can send out burgers and hot dogs with not just hot meat, but with a warm bun as well.

The grill features a built-in thermometer that easily allows you to know what temperatures have been reached, without having to open the lid and having to stick a thermometer into your meat. You still have to stick a thermometer into your grilling meat to play it safe but the large thermometer that is built into the lid takes a lot of guessing out of how often you have to do this. After a few grills, you might just be able to confidently send out food by using the readings of the in-built thermometer alone.

The grill comes with a removable catch tray that is very easy to pull out, clean and insert back in, so you can keep grilling without requiring cleanup. The cooking grill is also very easy to clean. The high quality stainless steel cooking grid can be wiped down with just a wet cloth, to keep it looking and cooking like new. The finish on the cooking grid is such that it prevents burns and stickiness, two elements that can otherwise make grill cleaning a nightmare.

Please note that this grill requires assembly. However, unlike other grills that require installation, this grill comes with some pre-installed nuts that tremendously speed up the assembly process. If you are handy with tools and have a knack for following assembly instructions, you shouldn’t have a problem in getting this grill up and running in just 2 hours or less. It is a small time related price to pay for an installation that will last you years, if you maintain it well.

A hack when it comes to assembly is to open the box or crate that the grill ships in an upside down manner. Though it sounds counter-productive, trust us when we say that opening it with an upside down orientation allows you to assemble the grill so much faster, with easier access everywhere. The instruction manual says that assembly requires a helping hand from a helper. But, it really isn’t necessary and the helper is just required to hold a part or two for just a couple of seconds while you fasten or screw it onto the grill’s body. Nothing that you can’t manage on your own.

Like we mentioned in our Nexgrill 5 burner gas grill review, this 4 burner grill from the Nexgrill stables also offers excellent value for money. Comparable grills with similar BTU power and cooking space and also build quality easily retail in excess of $500, sometimes even more.

The performance is also excellent. In just 25 F degree weather, it can reach cooking temperatures of 600 to 700 F in minutes, if you crank it up all the way.

If you are worried about the low price point, wary that maybe Nexgrill might have used cheap material for the burners, don’t be. The grills use sturdy stainless steel that are much superior to the chrome like grill grids that you see on the cheap gas grills out there. The stainless steel grid used on this grid weighs heavy and heats and retains heat excellently, providing you with even and intense grilling possibilities.

One thing we have to say about Nexgrill grills is that they tend to rust a little, if you don’t care for the stainless steel well. But then, this is an issue that affects even grills that sell for thousands of dollars. Besides wiping down your stainless steel parts with a wet cloth as and when you grill, it is also a very good idea to use a high quality stainless steel cleaner like Zep, to help keep the stainless steel in pristine condition. It also makes a lot of sense to buy a grill cover so your grill is always covered from the elements, when not in use.

A little bit of care and your Nexgrill will last you years, looking pristine as always.

The auto ignition feature is excellent on this grill. You can individually light up any one of the 4 grills on the cooking surface, without having to go through a ridiculous sequential lighting pattern that some other grills put you through.

Another difference in this grill that you will appreciate is that it doesn’t need a lot of pre heating. In fact, we will even say that you don’t need it at all. It heats up that quickly when you just turn it on, if you give it just a few minutes.

The lid has enough clearance to allow you to grill something as large as a 15 lbs. turkey, whole, yes, whole! There are many reviews for this grill and comments in other Nexgrill Evolution review style posts on the Internet that talk about super excited grillers who have cooked their thanksgiving bird using this grill, as it easily fits under the lid!

Besides all the excellent cooking and performance features, this is a grill that has a very pleasing aesthetic look to it, if you maintain the stainless steel finish very well. It comes with wheels that have caster locks that you can press to lock it in place, then release and wheel it out to a convenient location, preferably under cover and away from the elements.
