Grill with confidence at any level and enjoy professional grade results with SABER gas grills. The patented SABER infrared cooking system allows you to cook up juicier and more flavorful meals than traditional systems that use dry convection air. The unique SABER cooking grates and infrared emitters prevent flare-ups and direct airflow away from the cooking surface, providing evenly distributed, indirect heat for maximum moisture retention while grilling. The cooking grates also catch any drippings and debris, protecting the burners and creating that familiar BBQ sizzle as foods are infused with more juicy flavor. Designed with fuel efficiency in mind, the SABER infrared cooking system delivers quality results faster than most gas grills while consuming 30-percent less fuel. The burners, emitters and grates are made of 304 commercial grade stainless steel, ensuring long-lasting performance in your outdoor kitchen. The SABER 500 32-inch propane gas grill features an all-304-grade stainless steel lid and two internal halogen lights for night-time grilling. Three 8,000 BTU gas burners, provide evenly-distributed heat across a 500 square-inch cooking surface. An adjustable, stainless steel warming rack folds down to keep foods warm and can be folded away for additional space when using a rotisserie kit with the integrated rod holders (rotisserie kit sold separately). Precisely manage grilling temperatures across three cooking zones using individual burner control knobs, ensuring reliable start-up with integrated push-button electronic ignition. Three grate-level temperature gauges allow you to easily monitor grilling temperatures, even while the lid is lifted. Two 304-grade stainless steel side shelves provide convenient workspace with die-cast BBQ tool holders and a towel bar, as well as an integrated side-burner in the left shelf. The 18,000 BTU double ring side burner features dual control knobs so you can use a single burner ring for simmering, or crank up both burners to boil 15-quarts of water in as little as 18 minutes. Cleaning your SABER grill after meals is easy thanks to the porcelain-coated burner boxes, firebox liners and front-access grease tray, simply burn off and brush away any remaining debris with the included grate scraper. The SABER EZ assembly cart features fully-enclosed, 304-grade stainless steel storage space with stainless steel access doors and has heavy-duty, nylon locking casters for easy placement.

Expert ReviewBack to Top
Great value infrared grill; evenly heated cooking surface; virtually no flare-ups; heat zone separators for multiple cooking zones; easy to keep clean; excellent customer service after the sale.
Things To Love:
Saber offers great value infrared gas grills, along with excellent customer service after the sale. However, it's Saber's patented infrared cooking system that is the heart of the grill and what I love the most about them. The 304-grade stainless steel cooking grids feature air-channels on the bottom side, which trap hot air and create an excellent surface for nice sear marks, and offer quick heat recovery when flipping your food over. The cooking grids sit on top of 304-grade stainless steel emitter plates, which cover the entire surface of the grill, allowing heat to radiate evenly across the grilling surface. This also means that any food drippings that fall between the cooking grids, will be caught and vaporized back into your food in the form of delicious smoke. The emitter plates feature tiny air holes that line up directly under the cooking grids, which focuses the heat exactly where you want it, at the cooking surface. Because this design also restricts air flow, you'll find that grease drippings, which normally cause flare-ups, are transformed into rich smoke and makes this cooking system virtually free from any flare-ups.
Saber's infrared cooking system also reaches searing high temperatures, which is great for steakhouse quality sear marks on your food. While cooking on this grill, I was able to reach a maximum temperature of 850 degrees.
Under the emitter plates, you'll find 304-grade stainless steel tube burners, each producing 8,000 BTUs of cooking power. The burners are ignited by a battery powered spark ignition. Sitting between each burner are heat zone separators, which allow you to cook with different temperature zones at once. This is great for searing steaks in one zone, while slow roasting veggies in another zone.
Another innovative feature of Saber that I love is the warming rack. While many gas grills include a warming rack, Saber's warming rack allows you to adjust it to sit inches above the cooking surface as a roasting rack, giving you extra cooking versatility. However, if you're cooking ribs or another dish that stretches across the heat zones, be sure to remove the heat zone separators so your food cooks evenly.
Saber grills also include a grate scraper tool and full width slide-out drip pan, making clean up of any grease that may fall into the firebox a breeze. It is worth noting that after multiple cooks on this grill, I could not find a single drop of grease that fell below the cooking system and into the drip pan. This is definitely a bonus if you're looking for a low maintenance grill.
We carry two collections of Saber grills; the Stainless Steel series and the Cast series. The Stainless Steel series is available in 3 and 4 burners, as well as built-in and freestanding configurations. The Stainless Steel series freestanding models include a side burner on the left shelf. This dual-tube side burner gives you cooking flexibility, and both burner tubes combine to produce 18,000 BTUs, which is one of the most powerful in the gas grill industry.
The Cast series offers the same cooking system as the Stainless Steel series, but features a stainless steel or porcelain coated hood with cast aluminum sides and powder coated cart, which gives the grill a different look and makes it more affordable. The Cast 500 and Cast Black 670 models include a 10,000 BTU standard side burner, while the other models do not.
Things To Consider:
Saber's firebox, heat zone separators, and drip pan are not stainless steel, but are made of porcelain coated steel, which can chip and rust over time and are only warranted for 5 years.
Also, like most infrared grills, don't expect to cook at low or warming temperatures. The lowest temperature we were able to achieve was 450 degrees.
Saber grills offer individual cooking zone thermometers that sit at grate level above each burner. However, like many gas grill thermometers, we found them to be inaccurate.
You'll Like This Grill If:
You want a great cooking infrared grill for the money, from a brand with excellent customer service after the sale.
