The Bottom Line
This Thermos grill is made by Char-Broil for Target stores. Thermos had nothing to do with it. The main selling point of this grill is the nearly complete stainless steel construction and its high BTU output for the size. On the other hand, the materials used to make this grill are low quality, made from the 400 series stainless steel to the weak cast iron burners. This grill will need a good amount of attention to keep it working and looking good more than a few years.
It is sold through Target.

Guide Review - Thermos Stainless Steel Gas Grill Model# 461262407
This grill has been discontinued.
For around $300 you can buy a completely stainless steel gas grill. This Thermos labeled gas grill is made by Char-Broil and sold through Target Stores. It is a big shiny grill designed to catch your attention when you walk into the patio area of the store.
Unfortunately, once you look a little deeper you see that the overall quality of construction and materials is poor. This unit is made from 430 stainless steel and will require a lot of care to retain its appearance. The stainless steel burners put out a sufficient heat for the 468 square inches of primary cooking space, but they are not good quality burners and simply won't last.
This Thermos grill does come with a 13,000 BTU side burner, but as is typically of this level of gas grill the side burner is lightweight and may not perform well after a year or so. You get a fully enclosed cabinet and a hood mounted thermometer but this is a grill built for appearance and not for grilling, style without substance. I have to recommend staying away from this grill.
