The Bottom Line

It has always puzzled me how Sears tries to market their grills. This one, labelled with K-Mart's "BBQ Pro" brand name is a typical, low quality, 4-burner gas grill. The selling point, the stainless steel hood, is low quality and prone to corrosion and discoloring over time, and I don't mean a long time. The one feature that actually stands out is the side burner, which, while not exactly a quality feature, is powerful and capable of heating a pot that is probably too heavy for the side table.

Pros

  • Good heat output from the side burner
  • Decent heat output for the size

Cons

  • Lightweight cooking grates
  • Uneven heating
  • Flimsy and lightweight components
  • Low grade stainless steel parts

  • 13,000 BTU standard side burner under a flush mounted cover
  • Porcelain coated steel wire cooking grates

Guide Review - BBQ Pro 4-Burner Gas Grill with Stainless Steel Lid Model# PG-40403SOL

Let me break this gas grill down this way. The burners and other internal components are lightweight and weak. While this grill almost produces a level of heat perfect for grilling, it does it unevenly and the grilling capabilities will deteriorate as the internal components wear out and break down.

The selling point of this grill is its stainless steel hood section (not the entire hood). The stainless steel used here is of an inferior grade and finish. It will discolor and corrode in a short time.

One last point, this gas grill lists for $269.99USD but is typically on sale either in store or online (it can be bought online and pickup up at the store for a potential savings). While I don't recommend buying this model, if you are inclined to do so anyway, buy it on sale.
