Back to Top

Blaze gas grills have a lifetime warranty that warrants against any defects in the manufacturing and workmanship on the control valves, cooking grids, stainless steel housing, stainless steel burners, flame tamers, heat zone separators, and all other stainless steel components. All electrical and ignition components are covered for one (1) year after the date of purchase. Grills must be registered within thirty days for the warranty to apply. Labor not included.

Unlike the standard Blaze Grills, the Blaze Gas Grills BLZ-3-LBM(LP/NG), BLZ-4-LBM(LP/NG) can be used in multi-user applications, including but not limited to: apartment complexes, hotels, condo complexes, fire stations, police stations, multi-family dwellings, etc. For multi-user applications, Blaze applies the following warranty: Three (3) year warranty on stainless steel grill housing, stainless steel burners, cooking grids, control valves, and manifold assembles. A ninety (90) day warranty applies to all other components. This warranty replaces the lifetime warranty offered with residential use when grill is used in multi-user settings.

I LOVE my grill. I've never owned a 'real' grill until now. I must admit I'm not much of a cook. But this is so easy to use. In addition to all the great recipes and step by step instructions I've gotten from your website (bbqguys.com) I am very pleased.
  • Love my new patio area.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this grill in my outdoor kitchen
My contractor recommended this grill for the outdoor kitchen and I'm sooo glad we went with it. It's super easy to use and I'm really happy that I can have different temperature zones when cooking. I really like that it has the lights - which allow me to clean it when it's dark.

Still getting used to it
I have used this grill for everything from fruit to meats. It is much different than other cheaper grills I have used so it is taking some getting used to. These burners get extremely hot very fast so be prepared to replace your tank more often

My first as a built in purchase
So I am an old school outdoor grill guy. Did a built in grill with this unit, as before I'd use a freestanding grill and incorporate that into an Island (I have done four others) I would give this 5 stars on the product quality! On the product performance, 3! compared to the cooking process, I need to be forefront and hands on so much more! The extra heavy duty grids above the burners are just that and also a catch all of grease flare ups and.... So don't walk away from this grill you could have a burned out brawt, have your water bottle handy. Love the lifetime warranty. Let's see how that works out.

Expert Review

The Skinny:
  • 304-grade stainless steel construction with outstanding metal thicknesses
  • Brilliant all-around cooking performance with bulletproof ignition
  • Multi-zone grilling so effortless, it feels like you’re cheating
  • Backed by a best-in-class warranty and multi-user warranty
  • Outstanding searing and baking power at 350 – 670 degrees Fahrenheit

Simply put? The Blaze Prelude is the perfect example of a Premium grill.

For this review, our irreplaceable Chef Tony put the Blaze Prelude Freestanding model through its paces in rigorous testing — such as XRF metal analysis, thermocouple heat inspection, and round upon round of roasting and searing. In his words: “It checks all the boxes.” We’re talking high performance, solid construction, rock-solid features, serious longevity, and that generous Blaze lifetime warranty.

Here's a question: are you a contractor? If so, we have special programs available on the Blaze Prelude and other products like it. Give our BBQGuys Pro team a ring at 1-877-298-6375 — chances are that our fine, friendly folks can supply you some great options.

Quality:

The Blaze Prelude boasts excellent construction with thick cooking rods, commercial-rated burners, and thoughtful design decisions.

First up, the Blaze Prelude is 304-grade stainless steel inside and out… minus a few key spots. The interior firebox, warming rack, drip pan, and inner panel of the double-walled lid are all 443-grade stainless steel. This is intentional. Such steel boasts higher titanium content than other grades, which means super strength and flexibility under extremely intense heat — leaving it less likely to crack, warp, or break welds under repeated conditions.

  • Not to mention the solid width of these pieces. Those thick 8mm cooking rods are solid stainless steel, wide enough to absorb and hold heat nicely (which means striking sear marks at high temperatures). Blaze Prelude grills also use 14-gauge, 304-grade perforated flame tamers that carefully guard your burners from drippings, vaporizing them on contact. Across the entire length of your firebox, your sensitive burner ports will remain grease-free and safe to operate. Plus, the Grease Management System features Lower Heat Baffle Design for serious convenience in clean-up.

  • Blaze Prelude LBM 8mm cooking rods

But let’s talk more about those burners. Welded into shape with robust quality and construction in mind, these 16-gauge, 304-grade stainless steel tubular burners are a new design from Blaze meant to really excel at this price point. Just to drive home their attention to excellence home, Blaze even made them commercial-quality, which was a nice touch Chef Tony appreciated. Combined with that multi-user warranty — more on that in a moment — this gives Blaze Prelude outstanding staying power every time the grill tongs change hands.

Performance:

Beyond roaring temperatures, Blaze Prelude provides searing hot temperatures and baking warmth inches apart.

After 20 minutes with all burners on high, Chef Tony clocked this Blaze gas grill at 670 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s plenty for the Premium class, and high enough to drop an amazing sear on the thickest steaks around. For the minimum heat test, 20 minutes with all burners on low produced 350 degrees; that’s about what we expected. This won’t let you smoke or cook low and slow, but it holds the door open for various other cooking techniques such as baking and roasting.

  • Does “perforated flame tamers” ring a bell? They’re not just burner protection! When grease droplets splatter against the white-hot perforations, a subtle flame kiss sears your foods — much gentler than the charred beating of a fiery flare-up. Overall, this extinguishes flames and dissolves grease before they can cause you any headaches.

  • Blaze Premium LBM perforated flame tamers

Not impressed yet? Here’s the Blaze trump card that impressed Chef Tony: Heat Zone Dividers. This split-temperature potential really pulls the Blaze Prelude series forward from other grills in this class. Between each burner rests a 304-grade stainless steel plate that halts the transfer of heat laterally across the grill. You probably won’t be ready to appreciate this genius feature until you need to grill at staggered temperatures. As soon as you do, you’ll find that Heat Zone Dividers hold one portion of the grill at a much higher heat than the other. For inspiration, this grants you the power to simultaneously flip seared steaks and bake sides mere inches from one another.

Features:

With foolproof ignition, swappable infrared burners and the best warranty in the game, Blaze Prelude stands out.

Standing proud and reliable, the Blaze Prelude raised an eyebrow with some convenient quality of life add-ons. First up: ignition. That’s handled by Blaze’s patented Push & Turn Flame-Thrower w/ Backup Flashtube & Crossover Channels. What a mouthful! But these flamethrower ignitions are far more dependable than piezo spark designs (and if you do have to replace them, they’re much cheaper). They’re also much simpler: a separator in the grill sends a small gas line through each igniter and, when activated, the sparker igniter throws a small flame that can light the whole grill in one fell swoop. If any single igniter fails, the crossover plates in the back step up for the assist; if the whole system goes, the secondary flash tube ignition comes to bat. Flash tubes can’t fail, period. If you can produce fire of any kind, and gas is trickling to that tube, the burners will light every time.

Snap in and out infrared equally caught his attention. Even most Luxury grills won’t let you purchase an aftermarket infrared accessory burner like this; Blaze offers it whenever you want, because all these burners are easily swappable. Pop off a regular burner and slip in the plug and play infrared burner — that’s it. It doesn’t get simpler. Other accessories include a branded grill cover and robust smoker box. For freestanding models, the grill cart sneaks in a convenient paper towel rack holder against the double-walled doors, a propane tank holder with locking mechanism, swivel-locking casters, and removable side shelves for extra space and easier storage; naturally, the Blaze Prelude Built-In model won’t benefit from these niceties.

Chef Tony’s favorite feature? The warranty, hands down. Blaze guarantees this grill for not 10 years, not the “lifetime” of the grill… but the lifetime of the original purchaser. Not only that, but they throw in a 3-year multi-user warranty; this will be particular draw for those of you looking to outfit a recreational area, residential housing, or any other communal area. If this doesn’t qualify as customer service, we don’t know what does.

We don’t see grills with this level of quality often. Between thoughtful construction and thick materials, the Blaze Prelude is frankly built to last. It’s also built to perform — those tubular burners, flame tamers, cooking rods, and especially the Heat Zone Dividers fold together into a multi-faceted grill greater than the sum of its parts. Throw in Push & Turn Flame-Thrower ignition (and an infallible backup), the finest warranty in the game, excellent multi-use commercial-level protection, surprising cart features, and that eye-popping plug and play infrared burner, and you wind up with a guaranteed entertaining investment you’ll hand down to your kids.

Question:
You say the freestanding grill can be converted to a built in. Is this done by simply removing it from the cart or does it require additional vent panels or other configuration?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi John. It can be taken off the cart and placed into a cut-out, but your built-in installation will require ventilation and must be constructed of non-combustible materials, or else you'll need an insulated jacket.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
