With the proliferation of smart grills, consumers are expecting ease and convenience with grilling more and more. To satisfy that need, Char-Broil is getting a jump start on the 2022 grilling season by releasing the Char-Broil Cruise gas grill. According to Char-Broil, this is the first gas grill that can set and maintain a cooking temperature from start to finish.
The Char-Broil gas grill has an MSRP of $699, is available on Char-Broil’s website on April 11th and will be sold at Lowe’s. The grill is expected to compete with new gas grills from Weber and Nexgrill. It features a knob that controls a temperature setting, similar to an oven, getting rid of low, medium, high type knobs.
The Cruise gas grill is the first gas grill of its kind to put this kind of temperature control into the hands of grillers. People have come to believe that all gas grills are the same and that working hard to manage heat variations has to be part of the outdoor cooking process. We believe in ‘grilling smarter, not harder,’ so we’ve created a grill that is capable of producing reliable and consistent cooking temperatures, allowing people to spend more time enjoying every aspect of backyard cooking.Mark Werner, President and CEO of Char-Broil
In addition to having a temperature control know, the Char-Broil gas grill comes with the following features.
- Auto Clean Mode
- Max temperature of 700+ degrees F
- 540 square inches of cooking space
- A built-in flame sensor that will turn the grill off if it does not ignite within a certain time or if at any point during cooking the flame goes out
- Patented Amplifire™ cooking system that prevents flare-ups
