Quality Grill at a reasonable price
I originally purchased this grill 8 years ago for our lake house in Alabama. I never covered the grill and it was in an area constantly exposed to the elements specifically the sun and rain. I'm just now having to replace it so my annual cost of ownership was roughly $150/year - that simply can't be beat for a built in grill. This grill is an extremely great value. We moved to the Houston area a few years ago and I also built an outdoor kitchen were I purchased this same grill again. I"m also an avid user of Green Egg products. However, if properly maintained the searing unit cooks a steak equivalent to a Green Egg. However, this grill is much easier to use especially when cooking/grilling on short notice. Excellent for steaks, seafood and burgers/dogs. Are there better grills out there? Yes, but you will definitely pay for it. I couldn't be more happy with this product.

Great Looking Grill, Quality is Great for the Price
I have owed this product for over 2 years and I have to say that it gets a bad wrap. Negative reviews are not fair because this grill is 1/2 the price (or less) than that of its competitors. At my previous house I owned one of its competitors and you run into the same issues with all grills. If you use it a lot, general maintenance will be required, ie. deep cleaning, parts replacement, etc. The good news is that the replacement parts for this grill are reasonably priced. When I needed to replace a searing burner on a competitor, it was over $200 for just the burner. For this grill, I just did an overhaul and it cost me about $180 for new grates, new burner covers and a new searing burner. The installation of the replacement parts was simple. The exterior of the grill still looks brand new because I wipe it down with a stainless cleaner 1-2 times a month and I clean it with Bar Keepers stainless cleaner every 6-8 months to remove discolorations, water marks, etc. At this rate, if I do an overhaul every 2 years, you still spend less on this grill after 10-15 years than the competitors. Buying a grill is like buying a car, you need to look at the performance and compare it to the price. This grill is like a Lincoln or Cadillac, it gives you some premium features and looks luxurious and the maintenance won't kill you. You can spend $2000-$5000 on a grill, and the quality may be better, however, the maintenance will be expensive and it will still be necessary. In regard to the grilling, the searing burner cooks delicious steaks and the grill is large enough to cook at least 10-12 burgers at a time. The ignitors are still functioning great and the burners produce an even heat. I have never used the rotisserie. I wish you could add a second searing burner because it its pretty small and you can only fit 2-3 steaks on it at a time, however, the ignitors are different and there is a resting plate on the rear side of the fire box to support the weight of the searing burner

Not good quality
Bought this grill because we had purchased all Kitchen Aid for the inside....dishwasher, cook top, frig, oven-micro combo, and that it was cheaper than other grills. Big mistake! The sear burner has melted after a couple years and the bbqing grates are now falling apart as they cannot take the heat. So, I guess it time to purchase a REAL grill that costs 3 times what this one did. Guess you get what you pay for?

I bought this product when it sold under the "JENNAIR" tag.
It's a great grill for about 3 years, 6 years later its literally falling apart. Only two of the original burners still work. The infrared burner is totally deteriorated, even the grill is where you put the meat is falling apart.

Read the real reviews this grill is junk!
This grill has a major flaw with the valve assembly. If the grill gets hot (grills get hit) they fail and cause it to leak gas into the manifold where it burns up all the other valves and wiring. Then just try to get parts to fix it ..... spend more once or buy a new kitchen aid yearly!
  • Look how the heat swells the box and all the parts fall in!

Spend a little more
I purchased this grill after using a Jenn Aire for over 12 years. This grill did not make it for three years. Buyer Beware...... I called the warranty/support. They indicated they were aware of the metal expanding and the burners & grates not fitting after using. In addition, they requested photos. I never heard back......

Not a quality grill
Bought a built in Kitchenaid Grill for the searing feature. The high heat destroyed two of the stainless steel cooking grates within one season of use. The problem? Kitchenaid does not include nor do they offer solid stainless steel rod grates for their grills that will withstand the heat of the searing burner. The extreme sear heat bakes and cracks the stainless steel coating off of the grates provided. No satisfaction when contacting them for replacements or upgrades. I'm left with only two usable of the four grates that came with the grill and searching for replacements from another manufacturer just so I can use my grill. In the meantime, no sear cooking for me. Very disappointed in lack of Kitchenaid product quality and support
  • Sear heat damage one

The Skinny:

  • Great price point
  • Well-known brand name
  • Easy to use ignition system

Things We Love:

KitchenAid Gas Grills combines an attractive price point with some of the specs and features often found on premium-priced grills. It is made of almost all 304 stainless steel which is great. KitchenAid grills are made by NexGrill who licenses the KitchenAid name from the Whirlpool Corporation.

The 30-inch grills have four 12,000 BTU burners and the 36-inch grills have four 10,000 BTU burners. The burners on both models are constructed of high-grade 304 stainless steel, which is a plus. Both built-in grill models include a rear rotisserie burner though the rotisserie kit is sold separately. The KitchenAid 36-inch Gas Grill includes an 18,000 BTU infrared searing burner for steakhouse quality searing, which is not typically found on grills in this price range.

The Even-Heat System consists of the stainless steel burners, angled flame tamers as well as enhanced grates. These all work together, to distribute consistent heat across the entire surface of the grill. It also aids in reducing flare-ups.

Another plus is the easy-to-use electronic ignition. The nicely designed, built-in hood thermometer is easy to read and helps you gauge the amount of heat inside the grill.

Things To Consider:

The cooking grids are stainless wrapped steel, not solid stainless steel. Once the wrap wears off, the raw steel underneath can rust. The natural gas (NG) grills need to be converted using the included conversion kit. This should be done by a licensed plumber. This takes some time, and may create an added cost for more of your plumber's time. While it’s nice that the burners are warrantied for 10 years, the other stainless components are only warrantied for 3 years, and all other parts only 1 year.

KitchenAid doesn't offer a full line of outdoor kitchen accessories, so you'll need some universal-style accessories to round out your outdoor kitchen.

You'll Like This Grill If:

You want an affordable, entry level, built-in grill for your outdoor kitchen.

I am replacing a GE Monogram 36" Grill that is built into a brick masonry base. I am looking at your Kitchen Aid 36" Built In Grill.Can you tell me if that will drop into the same space that the GE was in?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi, thanks for asking! We can't guarantee that the Kitchen Aid 36" grill will fit in the same base as the GE Mogoram 36" grill as they may have different cutout dimensions. We do recommend checking the cutout dimensions of your island and if they match with the dimensions needed for the Kitchen Aid grill to be sure.

Question:
I am looking at the Kitchen Aid 36" Built In Grill. I am replacing an existing grill, that is built into a brick masonry base. I see that they provide a 10 ft hose and regulator to convert to Natural gas. I don't have an open bottom for the hose to go. Is the hose removable from the regulator.? Does it use standard pipe threads so I can re-plumb with hard pipe and suitable gas hose?

Hi, Bob. The conversion kit provided must be used when converting your grill to natural gas. More information on converting and installing this KitchenAid grill can be found in the Use & Care Guide listed under Manufacturer's Downloads.

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.
