What makes it so special other than LED?s and stainless construction?  What is the attraction?  I cannot see spending that on a grill. But that?s me.  I would personally invest is a green egg and a cedar table for that much.  Bring out the old school Weber for a few hot dogs on the fly.

that dude is full of it! 

that grill is not worth the brand new $4k price tag!  here is their website:

http://www.sabergrills.com/product/5147/SABER-1670-ELITE-SSE

that thing does not even have cast burners!

if I was going to drop some Serious $$$ on a grill, I would (and am actually saving for this one which is $1400) get this one.  this one doese have cast burners.

I have a gas grill that is over 10 years old, it has cast brass burners that you can remove and clean out, it has the IR Sear function for steaks, and the funny part was/is....my ex wife bought it at Walmart on clearance for like $250 (or something like that).  that thing is huge and still works like a charm to this day.  the only issue I have with it is the busted wheel that one of my STUPID lieutenants broke as he was dragging it across bricks.

I currently have a Walmart grill that's prob 8-10 years old & still operates fine. I just wanted something a little better quality. I will see it in Person on Sunday & see if it's worth it.

I have a broil King which I bought at Lowe?s 3 years ago, I had a Weber before that & couldn?t pay the Weber price comparably. The broil king has worked flawless & it?s a great unit for the money.

I wouldn?t pay that for it. Burners only have 10 year warranty.

I wouldn?t pay $240 for it!  Then again the original purchase was probably descended from an inbred loyalist line who traces their heritage back to Benidict Arnold ........ Boston ..........

That's my only concern with it, aside from the price.

Well, my ancestry got the best of me & I bought it. He was asking $2,400 but I ended up paying $1,800 for it. It was(barely) used as a demo unit & all the accessories that come with it were still wrapped up. Regarding the burners, even though the are tubular, they are almost twice as thick as a conventional tube one. Plus, I really like the fact that there will be no flare-ups with their design. All in all, I'm happy & believe it will last me a very long time.

After going on vacation & then travelling for work, I finally got a chance to use it. You (I) really don't know how bad your old grill is until you use a higher end unit. Flare-ups are nearly impossible with it which is huge for me. I've cooked marinaded tips & pub burgers on it so far. Everything came out juicy & cooked perfectly. The sear is incredible. Even though the burners are only 8K btu each, I can get this grill to 900deg in 10 minutes. It's true when they claim a hotter temp while using way less fuel. This is by far the best grill I've owned.

Nate, I bought an island grill, sink, frig set from Lowes, the ones with granite tops. They were pretty H/D, and not very cheap(but China) and the cast iron burners rusted out within 3 years of occasional use. They were pretty thick also. The large diameter 304 grates also rusted (turns out they were not solid stainless) Now they don't sell that model anymore. urrr

The grates would be simple to buy and cut to fit, if needed, but those large burners might be a whole different story. Just sucks because I hadn't even finished the courtyard, which I was designing around this setup. The sink has a set of burners and a griddle... never even fired up that section.

Darn Ken, that's what you get for living in such a wet high humidity area. Must be all the salts in the soil that flies around as dust every time the wind blows. Lots to be said about the different types of stainless out there. My last grill (in Washington) was rusted by the time I got it out of the box and set up on the patio.

Most(if not all) grills from big box stores are a cheap grade of stainless. Although mine initially came with a hefty price tag, every metal part on it is 304.

I don?t know honestly, however I used to cut stainless cooktops for high end commercial kitchen grills and we used 316 on those....

To the best of my knowledge, I've never seen a grill for sale commercially constructed with 316L. Most cheap stainless grills are type 430.

You know you are in trouble when the magnet sticks to your pretty new stainless grill.
