I saw these recently too in Loblaws and they looked great for the price. I think they have cast iron grills but don't quote me on that. I'm hoping someone can give a review here too.

I have some current customers who have purchased RCSS bbqs just a few years ago & the inner lower box has rusted out completely. They use a very poor Stainless steel & all you are going to do is replace your unit in a few years. If the lower box is galvanized on the bottom, you can write it off in 2-3 years. You can't get parts on older units. All I can say is don't do it. Believe me, I know bbqs. I sell more bbqs in Durham region than anyone except Home Depot.

Doesn't really surprise me, most of the PC-branded appliances are of the throwaway variety.

Thanks for the post. In your experience, what would you recommend in a decent stainless steel bbq for under $500?

My father inlaw bought a SS unit from PC last year. Sure the thing looks pretty when not it use. Does it cook good??? That is a definite hell no!!! the unit is so bad in heat distribution barely half of the bbq can be used at one time.

Piece of trash, stay far away!!!!!!!

Wow, for $500 you will not get a great complete S/S bbq. Check out the link below. This is not my store, but he has great Q's & his prices are great. If you see something you like let me know. He is the king of bbqs. He kicks my ass in total sales.

I would avoid these BBQs.

Chinese made with no parts available or warranty support. Questionable long term quality/reliability.

Buy Webber, Broil King ect.. real BBQ companies.

Any know if there's a tank exchange in East York?

Walmart says their propane tanks arrive at end of April. Looking to swap my old standard tank this weekend.

Also, what is the price + propane? Thank You

why not just refill it for now and swap it next time you're empty?

I learned my lesson the hard way. I bought a "middle of the pack" bbq and it lasted me some 4 years. Then last year I ha dthe brilliant idea of buying the cheapest Walmart bbq. Great ! Lasted me enought until the end of the season. If anyone is interested, I'm ******************

Botton line : invest some money and get something that will last you many years to come.
