Sears Brands LLC.

The Bottom Line

This is a typical $200 Kenmore gas grill (made by Char-Broil). Offering 4 main burners and a low powered side burner, you get a basic function grill for what really is a reasonable price. The porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates will transfer heat well and the 4-burner design, while a little excessive in this price range gives you a lot of heat versatility. The downside is that this grill isn't built with the best parts or the thickest metals. I would expect this grill to give you 3 to 4 years service if you keep it clean and covered and don't live on the coast.

Pros

  • Inexpensive 4-burner grill with side burner

Cons

  • Lightweight construction
  • Thin metals won't hold heat
  • Uneven heating

Guide Review - Kenmore 4-Burner with Side Burner Model# 464424312 - Discontinued

This model has been discontinued. It is replaced by the BBQ Pro 4-Burner Gas Grill with Stainless Steel Lid Model# PG-40403SOL.

At most of the big box stores there is a grill like this one selling for around $200USD. The Kenmore 4-Burner at Sears is made by Char-Broil under the Kenmore name. This is a large gas grill with 4 burners and a basic side burner. In truth there isn't much that makes it stand out. Constructed of powder coated steel with a 430 stainless steel lid and lightweight internal components this grill isn't built to last and will probably only serve you for a few years (3 or 4).

The BTU output of this grill is good and typically average. The 12,000 BTU side burner is good enough to heat a pot and a nice addition if you actually use it. The main burners can pump out as much at 48,000 BTUs which is good for a grill this size. The reason it has four burners isn't to give you extra versatility as much as it is to try and even out the heat and to make up for the lightweight firebox. The porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates are pretty heavy and will transfer heat, so that's a plus.

One way to tell the lifespan of this grill is to look at the warranty (receipt required). You get 5 years on the burners and 1 year on everything else. Damage due to rust is not considered cause for a warranty claim. Sears does offer an extended protection plan for an additional charge.
