The Char Broil Patio Bistro Infrared Gas Grill is great way to safely cook your favorites on your patio or balcony. Great for apartments with small decks or patios. Its compact design still offers plenty of cooking space. The 320 sq. in. cooking surface is large enough to hold 8 to 12 hamburgers.

The propane gas version with its fuel-efficient 12,000 BTU burner system produces plenty of heat to cook your meats to perfection. Char Broil’s infrared high temperature cooking system holds in the flavor of your food by searing the outside while cooking much faster than typical gas grills. Its external gauge and precision dial are a must to make it easy to monitor and cook your food to perfection.

Features of the Char Broil Patio Bistro Infrared Grill:

  • 320 square inches of infrared grilling area which sears in flavor and keeps food moist and juicy
  • Easy-to-light integrated electronic ignition
  • Stainless steel premium cooking grate–just drop wood chips on the grate to add smoky flavor
  • Compact and stylish design
  • 12,000 BTU propane burner system
The Good:

+ Compact size is perfect for apartments and small decks
+ Infrared Grilling system cooks faster and more evenly than standard gas grills
+ 20 inch diameter grilling area can cook 8-12 hamburgers at once
+ The available 1,750 Watt electric heat version is available for apartments where gas grills are not allowed

The Bad:

– Round grilling area is more difficult to arrange large pieces of food
– Assembly takes time and patience

The Char Broil Patio Bisto Infrared Grill is a good bet for:
  • Anyone living in an apartment or condo with limited space
  • Someone looking for a small grill for their vacation home

Perfect size for my little patioMark
Best grill ever
I think this is the best grill I have ever bought and it matches my big easy by Char-Broil ,so it's a great pair!!Ricky
Great Grill My 2nd one
This is a great little grill for one - four people. I use it for one person most of the time and food turns out great. Try grilling a rack of baby back ribs on the number 2 setting...... season with a dry rub that has your favorite seasonings and white and brown sugar in it for at least an hour then grill bone down for 15 minutes and meat down for 20 minutes...They turn out wonderful....ENJOY !!!!!

I would but this product all over again--fantastic grill!
Fantastic sized grill just right for the deck. Love the way it cooks so fast, yet the food is tender and tasty. I do wish it had one table arm for bowls and utensils, but overall, we are so happy with the grill. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Brenda
I love this handy grill, works fantastic.
What a great little grill just for two. Although you can serve a crowd of 6 or more as you can cook 15 burgers at a time. It heats up quicker than the bigger grills, which saves time too. Highly reccommend it. Even my husband loves it and was hesitant to buy it.Gerri
Very compact grill for my deck
The gas tank fits underneath the grill giving it a small footprint. The lid is hinged (unlike Char-Broil's previous model), a great change for ease of use. This grill seems to cook faster than my Deck Caddy, but I'm not sure I prefer the sheet metal stainless steel grill for cooking food over the conventional enamel coated style.Bobtooshort
Works well for my small patio
Pretty solid grill, not to wild about the stainless steel grate (wish it was cast iron), that heats up and cooks fast. Seems like it cooks steaks with a microwave type finish. No char marks or crust just light brown and juicy. If that makes any sense.Conor
perfect for a small deck, cooks like a pro
Assembly took just under and hour, easy to read instructions. The paint on the rear of the grill lid was chipped and peeling when I took it out of the box, contacted Charbroil with this issue and they quickly sent a replacement. Probably the best customer support I have ever worked with!
Getting the grill warmed up can take a little while (5-10 min) but it does a great job once it's at the correct temp. Meats come out flavorful and moist. However, chicken frequently stick to the grates so I would recommend spraying them with a canola oil before placing them on the grill. It may be because it is still somewhat new, but the grill gives off an odd flavor to vegetables that I don't care for. I am definitely happy with my purchase, this grill cooks everything quickly and thoroughly, without drying food out.

Because of the design of the grate, cleaning can be tedious, messy, and nearly impossible. The cleaning tool provided with the grill is cute but does not get the job done. I did pick up a different multi surface grill cleaning tool recently and it makes cleaning much easier.bmk87
Great, simple grill
I really like the simplicity and the high heat of this propane grill. The stock stainless grid is good for general grilling, and works well with wood chips. I have the optional cast iron insert that is great for seaing steaks and burgers. The main drawback is that even at the lowest setting the unit is still too hot for slow-roasting or true smoking.TCVP
Like the size
Had two Patio Caddies previously and enjoyed them completely. This new grill works well, however, I think the maintenance prior to and after each use to keep the grilling surface clean is way too much. Looking forward to the grill conversion kit being available to convert the grill to the previous design.mmmcm
