The Skinny:

  • Built solid
  • Easy to use with a low learning curve
  • Affordably priced; great lifetime warranty

Things We Love:

If you're looking for an affordably priced premium grill, then Lion Premium Grills should definitely be considered. Lion grills are solidly built using 304 stainless steel and the hood is double-lined for extra durability. The grill comes with cast stainless burners that radiate heat well and tend to last longer than other burners.

One thing I like about Lion is that it's simple to use and has a lower learning curve than many other premium grills. The control panel is uncluttered and easy to operate, and the grill heats up quickly to get you grilling in no time.

Love the wonderful, smoky flavor of cooking with charcoal? As an upgrade option, you can add a charcoal tray to your Lion, giving you cooking versatility. The tray sits above the burners and the charcoal is lit by the burners, with no lighter fluid needed.

Lion also gives you the option to upgrade the included steel flame tamers to a ceramic rod flame taming system, which I highly recommend. The ceramic rods cover more grilling area and help to better distribute the heat across the entire grilling surface.

As a final upgrade option, you can purchase the interchangeable searing burner which can replace any of the standard burners. This gives you the option to customize your grills burner configuration any time you grill by simply swapping out the burners.

Lion stands behind their grills with a great lifetime warranty, which covers the burners, cooking grids, and stainless steel frame and housing.

To top it off, Lion is currently including a grilling gourmet package when you buy their grill. The package gives you cool extras like a rotisserie kit, grill cover, smoker box, griddle, and griddle plate remover with bottle opener. Who doesn't love lagniappe (a little something extra)?

Things to Consider:

While Lion offers a lot of upgrade options to consider, they are not included with the grill, which will add to the final price tag.

One upgrade I highly think you should consider is the grills flame tamers. By upgrading to the ceramic flame tamers, you will see a huge difference in the grills performance with a more evenly heated grill surface and minimal flare ups while cooking.
