The Bottom Line

This model gas grill was discontinued with the 2004 model year. The nearest replace model is the Coleman 5400.

This is a large grill, with nearly 600 square inches of primary grilling space. The four burner design is great for a wide variety of grilling and is perfect for indirect grilling; allowing for a kind of surround heat. I would like to see this unit have a few more BTUs for the size but it's a real close call.

Guide Review - Coleman 5300

At the bottom end of Coleman's new line, the 5300 is a large grill that gives you a lot of grilling space. This unit comes standard with a 12,000 BTU side burner. The side burner has a cover which is also a nice feature. Most of the internal components are porcelain coated cast iron which will last a long time, provided you don't chip up the porcelain coating.

In general, I have to say that this isn't a bad grill.

I would prefer to see a few more BTUs out of the main burners, but it's almost too close to call. Beyond that, I don't think that this is a particularly great grill or a great value. So having said that, if you find this unit on a great sale, go ahead and buy it.
