Perfect Flame Split-Lid Gas Grill Model #E3520-LPG - Discontinued

The Bottom Line

This model has been discontinued.

This is a dual head (or two lid) gas grill. One compartment is a standard, three burner gas grill that gives you 39,750 BTUs under 430 square inches of cooking area. The other side is a single 16,000 BTU infrared burner under 220 square inches. You get an independent infrared searing grill and a standard gas grill. I have said in the past that I like this combination.

Unfortunately, on this grill, it isn't well executed. The weak construction, many plastic parts, and poor quality stainless make this an unreliable grill that simply isn't built to last. At around $600USD this is a lightweight, but impressive looking grill.

    Guide Review - Perfect Flame Split-Lid Gas Grill Model #E3520-LPG

    This is an impressive looking gas grill that simply fails to deliver the function, quality, and durability. The Perfect Flame Split Lid gas grill was built exclusively for Lowe's Home Improvement Stores by BBQTek (formerly Pyromagic) last year but is produced by Sagittarius Sporting Goods. What you get is basically two grills for the price of one. If you think about each grill separately you can then decide if they are individually worth the money collectively.

    One grill is a standard three-burner, 39,750 BTU gas grill with a 10,000 BTU rear mounted infrared rotisserie burner (rotisserie kit is optional and extra). The 420 square inches of primary cooking space makes this a pretty standard powered and sized gas grill.

    The other grill is a single burner, 16,000 BTU infrared gas grill. The 220 square inches makes it very small, but since you would use this as a searing station you don't need a lot of space. However, at only 12 inches wide it is a very narrow space to work with.

    The complete package also comes with a normal, 13,000 BTU side burner. A very standard feature. You will have to add in a cover and propane tank to the package to get home with a complete setup.

    The biggest problem I have with this grill is, again, that the construction is weak. If you take hold of the plastic handle over the infrared grill part, lift it half way up and then twist it you will find that you can bend it pretty easily. The entire grill is built like this, lightweight. Add to that the fact that all the stainless steel parts are 430 grade (poor quality) stainless. This means limited durability and that the grill can be easily damaged. All the handles and knobs are cheap plastic and the internal components are as cheap as you can buy.
