Perfect Flame 5-Burner Gas Grill Model #720-0522. Lowes

The Bottom Line

This is a big, full feature grill. With a total cooking area well over 600 square inches of primary cooking space and 5 burners, this grill gives you loads of space, but not a lot of power. The now quality (430) stainless steel body is what holds down the price, bringing this grill in around $500USD. The infrared side/sear burner is a nice feature that tries to make up for lower heat output of the main burners.

This grill has a rotisserie burner but the rotisserie kit is optional. The stainless steel of this grill is low quality and won't hold its appearance long.

    Guide Review - Perfect Flame 5-Burner Model #720-0522

    This grill has been discontinued.

    The emphasis on stainless steel gives us grills like this one. The low-quality stainless steel on this grill is thin and not destined to last. The basic grill isn't bad, but would have benefited from better quality internal components and materials.

    Instead, we get stainless steel parts that don't have the quality to stand up to the elements and parts like the flimsy stainless steel burner tents that do little to distribute heat or even protect the stainless steel burners.

    On the other hand, this grill has pretty much all the bells and whistles (rotisserie kit for the rotisserie burner not included ($30USD)). The 50,000 BTUs from the main burners isn't going to give you a lot of power, but will give you enough heat to grill most foods. The reality is that the open design and thin materials are going to let heat out pretty fast so you may find the heat a limiting factor. At around $500USD ($550USD natural gas) you can certainly get a better quality grill, but probably not with this size and all the features. Basically, this is a "nothing special" grill. If you are after shiny then you might want to consider it. If you are after durability and function then you will want to look elsewhere.

    The one unique feature of this grill is the 12,000 BTU infrared side/sear burner. This seems like a decent solution to the sear station burner, but won't be as versatile as a traditional side burner.

    Perfect flame is a store brand of Lowe's Home Improvement Stores.
