The Bottom Line

This is a very basic grill. Three burners with good, even heat output and nothing else. Even the front cart cover is a fabric piece. What you get is a quality grill that will cook well, and, if taken care of, last for several years. You will need to take care of this grill due to the heavy cast iron cooking grates and burners. This is an old style gas grill with ceramic briquettes to distribute heat and burn off grease.

Pros

  • Heavy cast iron cooking grates
  • Solid porcelain coated cast iron burners
  • Good heat output

Cons

  • Flimsy cart
  • Very basic grill

Description

  • Three 14,750 BTU porcelain coated cast iron burners
  • 494 square inches of primary grilling space
  • 44,250 BTU total output from the main burners
  • Heavy cast iron cooking grates
  • Stainless steel hood insert, side tables and control panel
  • Powder-coated metal cart
  • Ceramic briquette barrier
  • Hood mounted thermometer

Guide Review - Patio Classic 3-Burner Gas Grill

Unfortunately, Patio Classic has gone out of business. At this time no one has attempted to buy the product line so this grill, and all Patio Classic products, are no longer available.

Patio Classic started out life as a line of Kingsford Charcoal Grills. It has evolved into a complete line of outdoor cooking products. This basic grill has nothing in the way of features. A basic 3-burner gas grill, built well enough to stand up to any competition, if it didn't cost nearly $500USD. The heavy cast iron cooking grates are a good feature if you take good care of them. The porcelain coated cast iron burners will last as long as the porcelain coating. After that they will rust and fail to work correctly.

All I can say about this grill is that it does what it is supposed to, it grills. You can buy the rotisserie kit for it, but you are not going to get much else out of it. Taken care of it will last but for the price there's just way too many grills out there to take this unit very seriously.
