If you on the market for a budget grill you will have likely heard of Char-Broil. For this grill in particular they have focused on keeping it as affordable as possible while keeping their standards and overall quality up.
Char Broil Performance 475 Review
For the Char Broil Performance 475 there are a couple of slightly different deviations that you can choose from. It is available in an all-black design or one with a stainless-steel hood design mixed in and it is also available to be powered by liquid propane or natural gas. For my review I used the liquid propane option and the one with the stainless-steel lid.
Let me start of by talking about the set up for this grill. When you purchase this grill, it comes with different parts, but these parts have already been assembled. So, its just a matter of combining these sections of the grill to get it set up. Because of that the set up is really quite simple and easy, though the instructions aren’t the best. Once you get things set up you will see the grill in all its glory. It looks great and you wouldn’t think it’s an affordable grill just by looking at it.
Now to the cooking. As for when you get up and running the burners use an electronic ignition system which works just as you would expect. The grill has 4 burners which you can adjust individually which is great. As for the cooking grates themselves – they are made from a cast iron which is an excellent material for holding the heat and they also make amazing sear makes when cooking.
On a final note about the cooking area, the hood can be lowered when cooking and to keep food warm after cooking as well. There is a built-in temperature gauge in the hood, so you can get the perfect cooking temperature for whatever you are cooking.
As far as cleaning for this grill goes it is quite simple. The grease pan can be removed and emptying the grease away and cleaning it is easy. Also, the cooking grates are removable and are coated with a porcelain material which makes for cleaning them simple as well.
In terms of durability for this grill it is great and feels well built. While it doesn’t compare with the likes of Weber grills it is only a fraction of the cost and the value for money in this regard is tremendous for this grill.
Char Broil Performance 475 Review – Conclusion
In conclusion this grill offers amazing value for money. If you are looking for an affordable grill at this price point you will struggle to find anything up to the standard of the Char Broil grill. I massively recommend it!
