Bought a BBQ new two years ago. The paint on the lid caught on fire the first time I used it. They sent me a new top end for the BBQ. Thermometer broke about a month later (the needle just spins) and has terrible temperature control. Two years into ownership and the thing is rusted out beyond the point where I can use it safely. The burner deflectors have dissolved, as well as the steel plate below them. BBQ has been stored under a cover when not used. Manufacturer doesn’t care. Cheap Chinese garbage that they refuse to stand behind.
First time using the grill, opening it, the handle gets extremely hot. Called the company and they said it does get hot and to wear gloves. Had grills all my life, never dealt will a handle that ever got too hot to touch. In the summer going to have to wear gloves just to cook on the grill unexc.

We got our Dyna-Glo BBQ grill at Home Depot and it was the best decision we ever made. We bought it pre-assembled and just popped it in our truck. It’s spacious and cooks our food evenly. I highly recommend it.
I was surprised. I own a Weber but I bought this inexpensive $120.00 bbq grill for our second home. It worked great. It started with any assistance (match, lighter, etc). The only negative would be no catch pan underneath.
I bought this grill a year ago and I am very happy with it. It doesn’t take long at all to get it to a high heat and it’s just the right size cooking surface! Overall I’m very happy with my purchase! I highly recommend!
A few years ago our power went out, at this time I lived next door to 2 beautiful elderly (I will use the name of god-mothers 1 & 2) ladies. The storm was so bad that a tree fell across my fence from god-mothers 1 yard, it was winter time, awfully cold, 20 below with the wind chill factor, I was able to turn on my generator so my newborn and mother were warm, I then ran an electric cord across my lot to godmother #1 house. I then ran another cord across my lot then across godmother #1 yard across another lot then into godmother #2 house so they could have light, I then went and brought 2 brand new 80,000 btu heaters, I hooked 1 in each one of their homes. I myself have wood burning stoves in my workshop and 1 in the back of my house with plenty of chopped up logs, so everything was good so I thought, day 2 godmom 2 called me telling me the heater went out, so I take 5 gallons of fuel with me.
As I filled it I notice that the front of the heater was wet, I wipe it off and start the thing, thats when I noticed there was too much fuel coming out of the nozzle, I knew that heater should run a entire day because you can set the thermostat, so I pour out all of the fuel and take it back, they have no more in stock omg so I go back home and tell her the news, so it was decide that she just stay right with mom #1, day 3 they come over for lunch, both godmothers show and teach us how they had to cook back in their days with the wood burning stove.
My mother had died when I first brought this house, I was going to fix it up for her, so after she died, I just moved in and these 2 ladies were like angels, it turned out to be so so mush fun, they slept over so the could watch tv and take baths and was a big help with the new born, it allowed his mother to get some much needed rest, day 4 I went to check on the heater and it too was using so much fuel and again when it came on you could clearly see fuel is just pouring out, so I shut it down, so I had small electrical heaters, I go down in the basement and I blocked off the area that had the boiler and hot water heater. Made sure the gas in both houses turned off, I then turned the heater on, I then went upstairs and placed a heater in the bathroom and closed the door, knowing that heat rises and the fact that all water pipes are basically right above each other, I felt confident that the water pipes would not freeze.
I went next door to godmom #2 house and did the same thing. Day five comes and the power is restored, I empty the heaters and leave the top off of them so the fuel would dry up. The next week I call to see if the heaters came. I just want to exchange them. A few days later the same thing, but they have heaters in but not mu models, so finally I say forget it. I will just take them back for refund, get in the store only to be told the 15 day exchange or refund has been missed by 2 days, omg the store manager told me he will allow an exchange and was to call me when they came in.
I get home and start searching the internet and I file a complaint with the store and then with what I thought was the company's name is not. Seem as though whatever co. that sells them puts their name on them, it's been like 3 or 54 years now and I had forgot about the heaters. I attempted to use one tonight m I had forgot the problem I was having until I plugged in the heaters. Wow 2 brand new heaters and I haven't been able to use these cheap made heaters. Almost $400.00 just gone wasted smdh.
Would not recommend Dyna-Glo Grills. Started rusting in 2nd year and after 3 years, the drip pan, burner covers are rusted so bad that are falling into bottom of grill. The grill was covered when not in use. Seemingly a good buy at $289 from Walmart, would not buy again. Also will not buy another grill from Walmart.
I received the grill for Mother’s Day. I couldn’t wait to use it. Easy to clean, and great for grilling everything. There is plenty of grilling space and an area to keep your food warm while you continue to grill. Great for small patios.
I am not sure if all models are alike, but the one I purchased is very unsafe. The food gets on high flames very easily. I had to make some modifications on my own in order to avoid from keep happening. The 2nd issue is that again, due to the poor design, the grease leaks straight onto the floor. The little pan that comes with it to hold the grease is more like a little toy and not exactly an efficient method of holding the grease. There are more issues, but I think these are enough to warn the next consumer to avoid this purchase. Simply poorly designed product.
Bought the Dyna-Glo grill DGE530BSP-D 5 burner gas grill March 28, 2014. It's under a large porch roof, covered when not in use 85% of the time. Just this spring has little tiny dots of rust at the bottom front under the two doors. The SS grates are starting to peel the SS off. Overall, a very good grill, heats well, maintains 500 degrees for baking Pizza well. The SS shelves and hood sides are in excellent condition, scratches here and there but look similar to new. Castors are still free wheeling, door are operating properly (No rust.) Will get new grates but are hard to find exactly as when new. Many offer cast iron grates with porcelain coating, not my favorite. I've had many top line grills in 50 years and this one is the top! Only wish is that the company offer the exact same grates as when I bought it new.
