Sureheat Tuscany 30 Inch Gas Grill Model SGR30MPL

Sureheat

The Bottom Line

The Sureheat Tuscany gives you a full feature gas grill in an attractive design for around $400. Sold exclusively through Costco Stores this unit has a unique infrared side burner, full function rotisserie system, infrared sear burner under the hood and plenty of space for cooking and storage. Sureheat manages to hit Costco's price point by greatly reducing the amount of stainless steel in this unit. This grill is predominately constructed out of painted steel sheet metal. While you can't say this unit is built like a tank it is well built and offers a great deal of value.

Pros

  • Solid construction
  • Full feature grill for around $400

Cons

  • Painted sheet metal won't rust until the paint cracks
  • Limited manufacturer support

Guide Review - Sureheat Tuscany 30 inch 4-Burner Gas Grill Model# SGR30MLP

This model has been discontinued. It is replaced by the Sureheat Tuscany 33 Inch 4-Burner Gas Grill.

For the past few years Costco has carried a Sureheat gas grill targeted around $400USD to $500USD. The idea was to put a full function (or nearly) gas grill on the floor. In years past this unit has been constructed entirely out of 304 stainless steel. This year Sureheat and Costco have introduced the Tuscany Gas Grill. This unit has little stainless steel comparatively. Instead this unit is made from steel sheet metal with a highly durable paint finish. This means you get more grill for the money.

The Tuscany grill is a four burner grill with one 10,000 BTU infrared sear burner and three standard stainless (304) steel tubular burners. It also has a very unique 6,000 BTU round infrared side burner. This unit gets away with a low BTU rating because it is infrared. While this burner does what any standard side burner will do, it is a very unique feature. The grill also has a full feature rotisserie system with a 10,000 BTU rear mounted rotisserie burner. The grill is good sized at 476 square inches of primary cooking space. Remember that part of this area has an infrared sear burner under it. Under normal conditions you will not be using this area. This will give you about 350 square inches of standard cooking area.

You also get a good quality, full lined grill cover, which should help keep the paint from getting scratched. Of course that is the weakness of this unit. If the paint gets chipped or scratched rust will form on the metal underneath.

Well constructed with an attractive design and loads of features, this really is a good grill for the money. It may not last a decade but if you keep it covered and clean it should last you many years.

Got mine about 4 years ago and it is still great., Member LV_ta_grill

I have had mine almost 5 years now and I could not be happier. If you take care of things they last. The only thing I did not like was the cheap cover provided with it. The burners all still work great the flame shields had to be replaced after 4 years but thats normal. If you cover and it clean it regularly it will last. Bottom line with all grills.
