Guide Review - Minden Master Gas Grill
As a basic gas grill this unit seems on the expensive side (around $400) especially for a grill that is small in size and has not stainless steel (other than the burners). On the other hand this is a good quality grill that is durable and cooks very well (very even heat). The interesting design feature of this grill is the continuous work space across the top. The cooking surface is level with the side tables and there is no interruption of this space from side to side. This gives it an almost Japanese feel to the unit. As for the size of the grill, this is not the grill for someone who needs lots of space (or wants to brag about the size of their grill) but it is perfect for the person who needs a smaller grill. It is a perfect unit for the small family.
One of the strengths of this grill is the ability to add to it additional features in the future. There are not a lot of grills on the market that you can put a side burner on. Adding a side burner into this unit is a quick and easy operation that virtually anyone can do. Similarly other features can be easily replaced or added as needed.
One other advantage of this grill is that it can be shipped virtually anywhere in the U.S. or Canada so you can get it shipped where you need it.
