I bought the top of the line Imperial XLS towards the end of winter and waited for spring to assemble it.Once I got it assembled which was pretty easy with the help of the youtube video,I found out that the side burner was not firing up, I also noticed some exposed wire on the small grill (photo attached). So I called the Onward customer service and spoke to Pranjoli Sonawane who said the problem is the igniter and that since I am outside the initial 90 days even though its covered under warranty I will have to pay for the shipping of the igniter,I explained that I bought it in the winter and only assembled it now just a few days over three months,after arguing for almost 10 minutes she finally agreed and shipped out an igniter no charge for shipping. As for the exposed wire she insisted that the unit comes like that and I tried fruitlessly to explain that the main side has some type of shield over the wire and I believe that the exposed wire would be a fire hazard ,she insisted that I assembled the BBQ incorrectly and I tried to explain that this part is assembled in the factory ,she refused to understand and said that they don't assemble .(I have detailed emails between us to verify what I am saying),I finally gave up and decided to return the unit to Lowes where I purchased it. Before I returned the unit I took all my corresponding emails with Pranjoli Sonawane and went to see the manager Mr Haydon at Lowes and once he read the emails he immediately said lets see the floor model and we confirmed that indeed Broil King did not assemble the wire covering on my unit correctly as the display unit had the covering.He said that he will contact the Broil King rep and sort this out and I need not return the unit. A few weeks later after a few emails to Hayden,I got a call from Mike the broil King service tech and he made an appointment to come home and take care of the problem. When he came home he noticed that the factory at time of assembly did not install the wire cover correctly and he opened the unit up and fixed the problem . He also fixed the side burner that was not firing up as the part (igniter) Pranjoli Sonawane sent to me was not the problem.,apparently there is a mesh over the hole of the supply line that was installed inside the pipe instead of outside..He fixed the unit up and even cleaned the BBQ.Super nice guy Mike. He also told me that the new models come with Stainless steel cast grates on the large burners ,I said "shoot I should have waited and bought the new model" He said write an honest review the owners are hands on and read all the reviews. Hopefully the owners will read this review and ship them out for my troubles complimentary. My BBQ is now working beautifully and apart from the initial problems I am very pleased with the evenness of the cooking and the overall appearance and quality of the unit. Mike saved the day!!!!!! I would recommend this BBQ to everybody but advise that you assemble the unit between the 1st 90 days to avoid paying for shipping for any defective parts. Hopefully the owners will read this review and rectify the quality control at the assembly plant.(and maybe ship out some new grates to me)

I have owned this grille for @ 3 years. 9 months ago the chrome finish on all the emblems, handles etc. started to peel and flake and the bottom main cabinet started rusting. I live in Florida and could see this issue if grille sat outside in the direct weather but it is under our COVERED patio out of the weather completely. I have to say that when spending the kind of money on this grille that we did and to see it having these issues already I am highly disappointed. When I contacted customer service I was told these parts are out of warranty and so sorry. I really did love this grille until this happened and now will look to buy another brand. Sorry Broil King but sometimes you need to look further into circumstances (like possible product issue) before just flat out telling a customer "its out of warranty" . Thank you.

Not hot enough

By 

from Calgary, AB, Canada

Comments about Broil King Imperial 490 Stainless Steel Liquid Propane Gas Grill:

If no wind - bbq'ing heats fine - but with any wind the grill does not properly heat up. I have had the Imperial XL for 5 years now and have tried every possible trick to get the heat up / block wind. Generally I think the design is the problem..

Terrible Grill do not buy

By 

from Boston MA

Comments about Broil King Imperial 490 Stainless Steel Liquid Propane Gas Grill:

Like the other 1 star poster, the emblems peel, handles retain rain water then drip on the the grill as when I lift. The grill trays and burners are rusting and rotting. The "official" broil king cover even leaks which cause the ignitions to leak. Then when I call to get service or parts they want to charge me. This is not a brand like LL Bean where the customer gets relief no matter what circumstance. I have also posted my experience on Amazon.

Good BBQ but does have it's challenges..

By 

from Barrie, ON, Canada

Comments about Broil King Imperial 490 Stainless Steel Liquid Propane Gas Grill:

I have used this Broil King BBQ for the past two months and it has performed adequately. The challenges I have experienced is the main unit burners are not producing the same amount of heat causing inconsistent cooking. Secondly, the "grease trap" is way too small and a challenge to remove resulting in constant overflow and a mess throughout the unit. To avoid this I now check and change each time prior to using. It would be a nice feature if you could tell when your propane tank is getting low as we all don't have a hook up to natural gas.

So pleased!

By 

from Oshawa, ON, Canada

Comments about Broil King Imperial 490 Stainless Steel Liquid Propane Gas Grill:

It'll be 2 yrs this fall that I've been grilling with the best BBQ! For example tonight I'll be doing chicken wings with skewered veggies. I will have no worries about even consistent heat that I can rely on, which especially for such a small food spread out over most of the grill and to have such even results is something I haven't had with other grills. I recommend these grills because even 2 years later it looks and performs like brand new, and the quality is so apparent!

So far not great

By 

from Toronto, ON, Canada

Comments about Broil King Imperial 490 Stainless Steel Liquid Propane Gas Grill:

The BBQ looks great but I have had a few issue already with the grill. First off, CS is great. I had some broken parts and they shipped them out the same day. My low rating is mainly based on the performance of the grill. It's five burners as you know and it barely get's over 400. I have it pre heating for over 15 minutes and it wont budge from 420 with all five burners on. Horrible grill so far for steaks where searing is very important. We are still trying to work out the kinks with getting a gas fitter to come out and test the water column and psi at the bbq, but I think there is more issues here like the main control unit. I will update the review once it's all over and I am satisfied with the grill.
