Today we will be sharing three Dyna Glo grill reviews with you. Dyna Glo grills are known as well-designed, high quality grills which are relatively inexpensive compared to other similarly powerful grills on the market. As such, we thought they really merited a few reviews, as probably a lot of people are going to be interested in these particular grills.
There are many differences between the three Dyna Glo grills reviewed here, but perhaps the most important one for the user is the number of burners. We will cover one grill with 2 burners, one with 3, and one with 4 burners (and in that order). If you already know how many burners would be most suitable for you, then you can just skip ahead to the specific burner grill you are most interested in.
Another pretty important distinguishing characteristic is the source of power for the grill. However, in this respect there is no variety here – all Dyna Glo grills here are powered with liquid propane gas. If you want to find out about the other similarities and differences, keep reading – here are our Dyna Glo grill reviews.
Dyna Glo Black & Stainless Premium Grills 2 Burner
The first one of our Dyna Glow grill reviews is about the Dyna Glo Black & Stainless Premium Grills 2 Burner Liquid Propane Gas. It is a very modern-looking grill with black and chrome color palette.
It has a very compact design, largely due to the collapsible side tables and overall black/silver look of the firebox. It is 81.4 pounds heavy and its dimensions are 45.8 x 23 x 46.1 inches.
At the same time, it has an amazing heating capacity – it can reach and sustain very high heat over 467 square inches of cooking space. Or in other words, it can produce and sustain 30000 BTU (British Thermal Unit) of heat. That is pretty impressive for such a compact 2-burner grill.
Speaking of the side tables, it is amazing how useful they are. The material is powder-coated steel, so they can support up to 25 pounds. They are easily collapsible to the side, freeing some extra elbow space should you need it. In addition to that, on the side of each table there is a bar and some hooks for hanging your cooking tools and towels, which is really convenient. Thus, this grill is a really good choice for smaller patios or decks. Another feature that adds to the convenience of using this grill is that it comes with multi-directional casters which allow for easy wheeling to and from your patio or deck, of which two are locking casters so the grill does not move when it is not supposed to.
Here are some other things you might want to know about this Dyna Glo grill. The grates which are a part of this grill are perfect for retaining heat since they are made from cast iron. Additionally, they have a porcelain-enameled finish which ensures that the heat is distributed evenly across the grates and that the food’s natural juices add to the flavor rather that get squeezed out by the heat. Another plus is that the finish on the grates is really easy to deal with in terms of maintenance. This grill also has a durable lid construction, where the lid is lined with a double-wall liner for better heat retention.
Two other features we really loved about this Dyna Glo Premium Grill are that it comes with a built-in thermometer as well as with conveniently concentrated controls. The built-in thermometer is very easy to read and perfect to use if you are the type of person who wants their meat done exactly a certain way. The control panel is chrome-plated and includes all the setting control valves you would need, as well as the Electro-Pulse Ignition which starts up this grill. With this grill, it is really easy to adjust the temperature to what you need – it can provide not only high temperatures but also lower ones – some recipes do call for those too. With both burners set on low, the temperature is about 350 F. if you just use one burner on the high setting, the temperature would be about 300 F.
All in all, our impression of this grill is that it would be perfect for a smaller space and for users who want a top-notch grill, but do not want to spend too much on it and are satisfied with having only 2 burners. For less than $300, this grill is a really solid unit with quality parts, convenient features and great temperature control compared to other 2-burner grills out there.
Dyna-Glo DGB390SNP-D Smart Space Living 36000 BTU 3-Burner Liquid Propane Gas Grill
The second of our Dyna Glo grill reviews is about the Dyna-Glo DGB390SNP-D Smart Space Living 36000 BTU 3-Burner Liquid Propane Gas Grill.
It is very similar to the Dyna Glow grill we reviewed above in many respects. First of all, in terms of design, it looks pretty much the same as that one, with the only main difference being in the dimensions and weight, which are 22.8 x 49.1 x 45 inches and 76 pounds respectively.
The color palette as well as the layout of the grill is exactly the same, including the convenient collapsible side tables, chrome-plated controls, firebox, built-in stainless thermometer and multi-directional casters (which are made of metal, not plastic, by the way).
The main difference is in the number of burners as well as the amount of heat each grill can produce. This one has 3 burners, which means more even heat throughout. Also, there is a difference in the shape of the burners, these are straight burners while the Dyna Glo Premium grill has 2 P-shaped burners. In terms of heating power, the Smart Space Living grill definitely has the edge with 36000 BTU. It can easily get up to 300 F in 3 minutes or up to 550 F in a few more minutes! The knobs for temperature control work really well from what we’ve seen, so as with the Dyna Glo Premium grill, with this one you have easy control over the cooking temperature.
In terms of price, the price difference between this Smart Space Living grill and the Premium 2-burner grill reviewed above is really not that big – less than $50 if you compare the listing price. So, probably the determining factor in deciding whether to get this one or that one will be the amount of floor space. You have enough to accommodate this one? Then, go for it, unless you are absolutely certain that 2 burners are enough for you over the next 5 years at least.
Dyna Glo DGE Series Stainless 4 Burner Propane Grill
The last one of our Dyna Glo grill reviews is of the Dyna Glo DGE Series Stainless 4 Burner Propane Grill. With regard to design, it looks very similar to the other two Dyna Glo grills, except that this one is clearly larger and the color palette is different – this one is stainless steel all over.
Its dimensions are 22.6 x 50.7 x 46.8 inches and it weighs 96 pounds. This one also working surface tables on its sides, but they are not collapsible as in the case with the two previous Dyna Glo grills.
However, it does share many of their other features, such as the stainless thermometer, conveniently placed control valves, multi-directional casters and durable lid construction.
The grates on this grill are not made from cast iron but from stainless steel. The finish is stainless steel as well. In terms of heating power, the total power of the 4 straight stainless steel burners is 40000 BTU. That is already much higher compared to the other two Dyna Grills, but it is not all. This grill also has a side burner which you can use for sauces or anything else that requires different temperature settings than the meat you are cooking. The heating power of the side burner is 12000 BTU, resulting in a total of 52000 BTU of heating power. That is nearly twice as much as the Dyna Glo Premium 2-burner grill. In terms of price, the difference is comparable to the difference in power – this grill is less than twice as much as the 2-burner Dyna Glo Grill at less than $500 as its listing price.
To wrap up our Dyna Glo Grill reviews, we will say the following. In our experience, all three grills perform wonderfully considering their price. They are easy to use, well-made and have a lot of useful features. They warm up quickly and give you a lot of options in terms of cooking temperature. So, if you are looking for the next nice-looking, well-functioning and reasonably priced grill for your deck or patio, definitely check out these grills!
