Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I see that this gas unit is "field-convertible." What does that mean?
Gas equipment is factory-set to use either natural gas or liquid propane. Field-convertible equipment allows your unit to accept the other gas type (so for example a natural gas unit could be converted to use liquid propane), but this conversion must happen before it is used. For safety reasons, we recommend having a qualified service professional perform the conversion.

Cleaning your charbroiler every day will make it last longer and produce better results. While the charbroiler is still hot, but not on, use a wire brush and scraper to remove any stuck-on particles of food or fat from the grates. It's a good idea to wear cleaning gloves while you are cleaning your charbroiler. After you've cleaned the tops, flip the grates over and clean the bottoms. Once the charbroiler has cooled completely, use a damp cloth or sponge dipped in soapy water to clean the rest of it. A ready-to-use de-greaser like Formula-D can be used too. For really stubborn grease or carbon buildup, use a heavy duty de-greaser like Blast. It works best on a warm surface, and make sure you thoroughly rinse it off after use. On a radiant charbroiler, you'll want to clean the radiants. It's easiest to do this in a sink. Make sure you empty and clean the drip trays. Keeping water in the drip trays makes cleanup easier, and helps prevent grease fires. If you have a lava rock charbroiler, you should flip over the stones every few weeks to get any accumulated grease on the tops to burn off. Most manufacturers recommend changing the stones at least twice per year, but you may need to do so more frequently depending on your usage level.

Getting your brand new charbroiler cleaned, seasoned, and ready to use is easy! A properly seasoned charbroiler will produce better tasting food. Plus, it will last longer, resist rusting better, and be easier to clean. Follow these easy steps to season your charbroiler. After you’ve uncrated your charbroiler and hooked it up, it’s a good idea to wash the exterior with a mild detergent. Next, light all the burners and leave them at the maximum setting for 30 minutes. This will burn off any oils, dust, or protective coatings from the shipping and manufacturing processes. After the grates have cooled completely, you’ll want to season them to prevent sticking. First, coat the grates with a high-heat cooking spray or oil like Canola oil. It’s a good idea to wipe them with a paper towel or cloth to make sure you have them covered evenly. Next, turn all your burners on high and leave them on for 30 minutes or until your charbroiler stops smoking. Turn off the burners and let the unit cool off. Now your charbroiler is seasoned and ready to use!

    Easy Great grill lava charge briquettes Cooked awesome briquette clean
    Great price; however, the grate holding the lava briquettes disintegrated in less than four months. Customer service was nice, so we will see how much they charge me to fix this, if anything. The unit also runs hot.
    this charbroller last three years now for our buffet restaurant, work great! the only down point is parts can really costly if you need to replace every six month.
    This product is great. We had never used the lava briquette before, but it is awesome. Great char without burning anything. Would buy again in the future.
    The shipping was amazingly fast. Set up quick and easy. I've never had a grill that gets this hot this fast! Cook time is cut in half from my previous grill. Easy to clean and maintain. If I ever need another grill, this is it!
