The Bottom Line
Quickset is the least expensive of Char-Broil's gas grills. This three burner model offers nothing more than a three burner gas grill. Simple, lightweight, and inexpensive this $180USD model is a reasonably good choice for the price. It is a disposable grill. It will not last more than a few years and the replacement parts are not really worth buying to fix a grill of this price.
While there is a warranty it is pretty limited and odds are you are not going to be able to us it unless the grill is faulty out of the box.

Guide Review - Char-Broil Quickset 3-Burner Gas Grill Model# 463742215
What is there to say about a gas grill like this? It is very basic and very simple and I doubt that many people who are considering this model (or actually just picking it up at the hardware store just because they are there) will actually take the few minutes to read this review.
That in mind I will go into some painstaking detail.
There isn't a single part on this gas grill that is heavy weight or durable. Exactly what one would expect on a three burner gas grill for less than $200USD. This is the sort of grill that is bought impulsively and disposed of in a season or two in favor of one just like it.
The warranty covers five years on the burners and one year on pretty much everything else. It is most likely that the "everything else" will be the stuff that fails first. Buying replacement parts is an option but they can be oddly prices. Each of the three burners will cost $9USD, but the flimsy, lightweight porcelain coated steel wire cooking grate runs $30USD.
All in all, as a basic grill for cooking up some burgers or hot dogs, this isn't a bad choice for the person who wants a gas grill but can't spend a lot of money on it. As always, I recommend buying a much better quality charcoal grill, like a Weber Kettle for roughly half the price. While not as convenient it will probably last more than a decade and pay for itself in better quality food after a single cookout.
