Things We Love:
KitchenAid Gas Grills combines an attractive price point with some of the specs and features often found on premium-priced grills. It is made of almost all 304 stainless steel which is great. KitchenAid grills are made by NexGrill who licenses the KitchenAid name from the Whirlpool Corporation.
The 30-inch grills have four 12,000 BTU burners and the 36-inch grills have four 10,000 BTU burners. The burners on both models are constructed of high-grade 304 stainless steel, which is a plus. Both built-in grill models include a rear rotisserie burner though the rotisserie kit is sold separately. The KitchenAid 36-inch Gas Grill includes an 18,000 BTU infrared searing burner for steakhouse quality searing, which is not typically found on grills in this price range.
The Even-Heat System consists of the stainless steel burners, angled flame tamers as well as enhanced grates. These all work together, to distribute consistent heat across the entire surface of the grill. It also aids in reducing flare-ups.
Another plus is the easy-to-use electronic ignition. The nicely designed, built-in hood thermometer is easy to read and helps you gauge the amount of heat inside the grill.
Things To Consider:
The cooking grids are stainless wrapped steel, not solid stainless steel. Once the wrap wears off, the raw steel underneath can rust. The natural gas (NG) grills need to be converted using the included conversion kit. This should be done by a licensed plumber. This takes some time, and may create an added cost for more of your plumber's time. While it’s nice that the burners are warrantied for 10 years, the other stainless components are only warrantied for 3 years, and all other parts only 1 year.
KitchenAid doesn't offer a full line of outdoor kitchen accessories, so you'll need some universal-style accessories to round out your outdoor kitchen.

Questions & Answers (1)Back to Top
I am looking at the Kitchen Aid 36" Built In Grill. I am replacing an existing grill, that is built into a brick masonry base. I see that they provide a 10 ft hose and regulator to convert to Natural gas. I don't have an open bottom for the hose to go. Is the hose removable from the regulator.? Does it use standard pipe threads so I can re-plumb with hard pipe and suitable gas hose?
Was This Helpful?
Hi, Bob. The conversion kit provided must be used when converting your grill to natural gas. More information on converting and installing this KitchenAid grill can be found in the Use & Care Guide listed under Manufacturer's Downloads.
