- Good warranty
Things We Love:
Napoleon LEX gas grills are an excellent value, especially considering the grill's innovative accessories and features. The LEX series offers and optional infrared rear burner, an infrared “sizzle-zone” burner, and a built-in ice bucket with integrated cutting board. I also really like Napoleon’s doubled lined “lift-ease” lid, which opens easily and helps hold in heat for oven like cooking. The lid is hinged near the middle, and when open adds hardly any depth to the back of the grill allowing for easy placement in a variety of spaces.
Napoleon offers a generous grilling area for the price, and there are a lot of accessories available, so you can increase the versatility of the grill. If you love the flavor of charcoal, you can put in a charcoal tray and use the burners to light the charcoal, then turn them off. They also have a smoker tube accessory that you can fill with wood chips and add more layers of flavor to your BBQ. A rotisserie kit is also available so you can utilize the infrared rear burner on select models. I like that this is an option. That way people who aren’t interested in the rotisserie don’t have to pay for something they won’t use.
The warranty on the LEX series is a standout in its class, having a lifetime warranty on the exterior housing and cooking grids. Napoleon also boasts a 10 year + 5 warranty on their burners and flame tamers that provides replacement parts at a 50% of normal cost for 5 years after the 10 year warranty expires.
Thing To Consider:
While this grill is built tough, and backed by a strong warranty, Napoleon LEX grills are not "all stainless steel", which is what many customers are shopping for nowadays. Along with the stainless steel components on the grill, you will also find cast aluminum and porcelain enameled steel components too, such as cart legs, back panels, etc.
