Lowes Home Improvement

The Bottom Line

For around $150USD you get a standard sized, 3-burner gas grill with porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates and a 12,000 BTU side burner. Constructed of a mixture of stainless steel and black powder coated steel this is a pretty impressive grill for the price. Unfortunately this is also another of the "you get what you pay for" grill. Thin metals, lightweight materials, plastic parts, and poor construction limit the life expectancy of this grill greatly. My recommendation is to look for something smaller and will less features at this price point.

Pros

  • Inexpensive outdoor grill

Cons

  • Poor quality construction
  • Low grade stainless steel burners

Description

  • Three 14,000 BTU stainless steel tubular burners
  • 445 square inches of primary cooking space for a total grilling area of 580 square inches
  • 42,000 BTU maximum output from the main burners
  • 12,000 BTU standard side burner under a flush mounted cover
  • Electric (AA battery) push button ignition
  • Porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates
  • 400 series stainless steel and powder coated steel construction
  • Plastic control knobs, hand connectors and door knobs
  • Propane tank and cover sold separately
  • Imported from China by Nexgrill exclusively for Lowes' Grill Master Brand

Guide Review - Grill Master 3-Burner Model# 720-0737

Grill Master is another Lowes' store brand gas grill imported from China. This line has only recently been introduced an this is its first grill. Imported by Nexgrill, this is a basic 3-burner gas grill with side burner. It is constructed of low grade stainless steel, but most of the body is black powder coated steel. For the price, around $150USD it is a large grill and well featured. The 12,000 BTU side burner is a nice addition and the porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates would help give you a good sear if they had and mass to retain heat. In this price range you can not expect a lot of performance or durability and this is one grill that will live up to that expectation.

When it comes to gas grills Lowes and Nexgrill do not have the best reputations. Lowes' brand grills have seen more recalls in recent years than any other store and Nexgrill is known for limited customer service. This is one of those grills with no one to really stand behind it or really care how well it performs or lasts. Does that really sound like the kind of gas grill you want to buy?

Grill Master Great first Grill, Member Doghousedaddy

This was my first full size grill we purchased in July of 2011. and I have never had one problem with it, And we use it all the time for a family of six nearly all year long! have Grilled on it for 2 huge parties with over 50 guests at both. I have nothing to compare it to so I have NO Complaints, where we keep it, it has to be rolled out in the open, so wheels and structural integrity have held up! Purchased at Lowe's ready made, for about $170 (if I remember correctly ) The ONLY complaint I have to say is that now we are seeing rust on the grill surface and the heat shields , but that's over two years later. I would buy again for sure, don't know why others had problems
