11 years and going strong
by: Paul C

I bought a Jenn Air 720-0061 grill more than 10 years ago at a Home Depot (Despite Lowe's licensing). It's been great. After about five years, the cast brass burners clog up, but clean up easily with a small-bore drill. The cross channels (for lighting adjacent burners) also need cleaning with a hacksaw blade. After that hour or so of work, and about $20 to replace the rusted-out sheet-metal flame tamers, the grill works like new. I'm sorry to see that the brass burners are being replaced with cast iron.

Jenn Air 720-0163
by: Harvey

My HA 720-0163 has been going strong for 12 years now. There were many performance problems early on. The efforts of many users through the BBQ Forum contributed greatly to Nextgrill improving components over time. Early Nextgrill problems with supplying replacement parts seems to be corrected. Parts are now readily available and reasonably priced ( only pay shipping for most parts).
I’m looking forward to another 10 years of great service!

Jenn Air 720-0165

I've owned the Jenn Air 720-0165 for over 11 years now and have never had a problem with it, I can get it up to 500 degrees no problem. After 11 years of use the burners are finally starting to warp and need replaced but for $100 it's a cheap fix.

Want Quality? Look at Weber
by: Chesteracorgi

I bought the Weber Q320 3 years ago. It had a defect at construction, which Weber quickly addressed and sent new parts. This Cast Aluminum walnut shell grill has been great to clean and service. No rust on the burners (stainless steel) or case. The only issue with any rusting is with the cast iron grills themselves, and I may have to replace them sometime in the next 15 years.

Besides the part bent in shipping my only quality issues with the Weber Q320 are with the wheels (the wheel locks could be improved) and the night light, which could be better designed. The piezo, the burners, and real grill parts are wonderful.

If you keep your Weber Q clean there is no issue with flare ups. Cleaning is a light chore, except for the semi-annual full cleaning, which takes a burn off of the grease and a washing & steel brushing of the burner tubes.

Jenn Aire is not made by Jenn Aire, but by an inferior OEM that licensed the name.
