The Skinny:

  • Made in the USA
  • Patented SearMagic grates enhance cooking versatility
  • Manufactured by MHP, the company that invented the first gas grill
  • 304 stainless steel

Things We Love:

ProFire is an American-made grill with a durable, 304 stainless steel exterior and a double lined hood which protects it from discoloring.

ProFire grills are Modern Home Products' deluxe brand of stainless steel grills. Modern Home Products has an impressive history dating back to 1960 when they introduced the first gas grill. Since then, they've branched out to manufacture multiple grill brands, including ProFire.

ProFire's patented SearMagic cooking grids really take your grilling to the next level, and as a chef, what I love most about ProFire grills. They help prevent most flare-ups that the grill may produce. The SearMagic cooking grates are double sided, with a raised side and a flat side. The raised side is awesome for searing steak, while the flat side works well when it comes to cooking smaller, more delicate items like shrimp or vegetables so they don't fall through the grates. The SearMagic grids do a wonderful job at producing even heat, also produce a nice searing heat, wonderful for steak night!

Within ProFire, you'll find the Deluxe models and Professional models, with the main difference being stylish curved lid on the Deluxe model that I personally love. The Deluxe also comes with interior halogen lights, which really come in handy for nighttime grilling. When it comes to configuration, you have the option to get a hybrid model which adds an infrared burner, but since the SearMagic grids aren't available within the hybrid, I highly recommend the conventional configuration so that you can experience the SearMagic difference! Please note, you can also get the conventional model with stainless steel rod grids, so be sure to select the option that includes SearMagic grids- you won't regret it!

I like that ProFire backs its grills with a lifetime warranty on the stainless steel grill housing, burners & grids, and carries a limited warranty on other parts, including the flavor plates, knobs & ignition system.

ProFire makes a nice line of matching outdoor kitchen equipment and a very popular indoor grill as well.

Things To Consider:

When choosing a model that doesn't include SearMagic cooking grids, ProFire isn't the best in regards to even heat distribution and minimal flare-ups. The SearMagic grids really help improve the grill's cooking performance.
