Guide Review - Solaire Anywhere Portable Infrared Grill

First of all let me say that this unit isn't cheap, but reasonable for the quality and power. At around $340 for the standard version and $400 for the marine (316 stainless steel) version you are making an investment in a grill that weighs less than 20 pounds and is designed to be carted around. However, this powerful grill give you the heat of an infrared grill that you can take to the beach. This is really a great portable and one to definitely consider if you want to impress everyone at the next tailgating party.

The excellent construction of this portable gas grill is similar to Solaire's other full size, high end gas grills. The welded stainless steel construction makes it highly durable. If you plan on taking your unit anywhere near saltwater consider the marine version with its even higher quality and more durable 316 stainless steel. You can even get a swivel mounting to put it on the railing of your boat. This unit is very popular amongst boaters.

There are several options available with this grill and it is the only portable I know of that can be converted to natural gas. This makes it ideal for apartment and condo dwellers who want a little grill but don't want to leave it outside. While the overall grilling space is pretty small you can grill a couple steaks at a time and with the infrared power that won't be long.

Solaire has terrible customer service, Member steveprguy

I bought one of these high end grills and had a problem in less than 30 days. The propane cylinder would not unscrew properly after the tank ran empty. Obviously it was still under a parts warranty, but when I called customer service they would not stand behind their product. Told me it was my tough luck and I had to buy another exchanger for $50 more. Terrible customer service. Don't buy from a company like this!
