Get ready for moist and flavorful grilling like you have never experienced before, with the TEC Sterling III FR infrared grill. Using a unique and efficient all infrared burner system, the TEC Sterling III FR grill cooks with 100 percent infrared energy, eliminating hot air and reducing moisture loss in food by up to 35 percent. Save on fuel with extremely fuel efficient burners that reach temperatures up to 1400 degrees on the burner surface while using 50 percent less gas than other infrared burners on the market. The TEC patented flare-proof stainless steel infrared burner system combined with the radiant glass emitter panel results in tender, juicy, charbroil flavored food. The position of the stainless steel cooking grates, radiant glass panels, and infrared burners creates even heat distribution across the cooking surface and virtually eliminates flare-ups. The TEC Sterling III FR propane gas grill eliminates the need of a side burner because you can place your pots or pans on the cooking grids or radiant panels to heat and cook like on an indoor cooktop. This American-made infrared grill is built to last, with a double-lined hood and a thick 304 stainless steel body, double lined stainless steel hood, stainless steel cabinet with single access door, and commercial-grade black plastic knobs. It also features 696 square inches total of cooking area (522 square inches primary), three stainless steel non-mesh infrared burners with a total rating of 48,000 BTUs, stainless steel removable drip tray, and a warming rack. The push button battery ignition, self-cleaning glass radiant panels, and removable inner trim panels make it easy to clean and operate. If extra workspace is needed, optional stainless steel side shelves are available. Also included with this grill is a propane regulator. All TEC grills are CSA certified.

Expert ReviewBack to Top
TEC invented infrared gas grills; 100% infrared cooking means juicier foods; virtually no flare-ups; no hot/cold spots; built like a tank.
Things To Love:
The TEC Sterling FR series and G FR Series are a revolutionary style of gas grill. While most gas grills use convection heat to heat up the air inside the grill and cook the food, TEC uses 100% infrared energy. Even other infrared grills with ceramic infrared burners use some convection heat, and thus are not 100% infrared. With convection heat, as the food cooks, moisture is lost and food becomes more dry. TEC's 100% infrared system ensures the food's natural moisture remains, resulting in juicier food. I love cooking on a TEC grill!
The innovative, powerful burners are what sets TEC apart from all other brands. TEC invented the ceramic infrared burners that you find in most other infrared gas grills today. When their patent ran out on those ceramic infrared burners, TEC was already onto the next level, securing a patent for new 100% infrared stainless steel burners. The stainless steel burners are covered by heavy-duty, radiant glass panels that transfer heat from the burners and cook your food. These panels also efficiently spread the heat across the grilling surface, so there are no hot/cold spots on a TEC. This technology also makes flare-ups virtually impossible, because fat and food drippings are absorbed by the glass panels and never touch the flame. This burner design allows the grill to reach steak searing temperatures on high but also drop down to as low as 350 degrees on low, which provides nice versatility compared to most of the other ceramic infrared burner grills.
TEC builds all their grills in the USA. TEC’s level of quality is unmatched by most other competing brands. Durable, heavy-gauge 304 stainless steel is used throughout the grill (many brands use a mixture of grades). TEC backs up these Sterling FR and G FR grills with a lifetime warranty on the exterior stainless.
TEC’s Sterling FR and Sterling G FR series are very similar, each utilizing the same cooking system and high quality construction. The only differences are cosmetic. The Sterling G FR has a more stylish curved hood and stainless steel knobs, and the freestanding version comes with unique side shelves that feature pull out drawers within them. That's a handy feature for sure!
Things To Consider:
The grills appearance and design is pretty simple and bland however grills aren't suppose to compete in a beauty contest. Due to the nature of their burners, TEC grills have some limitations. Infrared burners are known for their intense heat output, but not for low temperature cooking. As a result, TEC grills don’t have a wide temperature variance like some competing brands. There also isn't a rear rotisserie burner available, a fairly standard feature on other gas grills at this price range. Also, TEC grills produce an extreme amount of clean, white smoke. While this is not harmful, it's important to make sure it's installed in a well-ventilated area, or consider adding a vent hood to help ventilate.
