Is The Char Broil Magnum 340 Really The Best Infrared Grill?
The Char Broil Quantum M340 IR takes it's name from it's award winning Quantum Infrared cooking system which is one of the reasons it's the best infrared grill on the market. The product description says that the Char Broil's patented infrared cooking system eliminates flare up once and for all. Versatility is also another strong selling point due to the fact that each burner has it's very own temperature gauge.
Another great selling point is that you can add wood chips on to the cooking grates for even more flavor. Anyway, enough about the it's features, this is a Char Broil Magnum review so let's see how it actually performs and whether or not it really is the best one...
When the Char Broil Magnum arrived I quickly got it out of the box and laid all of the parts out so I could make the assembly process as quick and painless as possible. Once all the parts were laid out I soon realized that this wouldn't be a 5 minute assembly job! In fact it took me about an hour and half but I do want to point out that I'm pretty terrible at assembling things!
The whole assembly process was pretty straightforward though thanks to the excellent instructions. What seemed daunting at first was in fact pretty easy (even for me). One tip I'll give you though is not to tighten up everything until the Magnum 340 is fully assembled! After you've fixed everything together, make sure everything is nice and tight.
OK so on to the important part.. How does it perform, is it really the top infrared grill on the market like all the reviews say??.. Luckily it arrived on a Friday so Saturday we invited some friends over for our first try at infrared grilling! The first thing that impressed me was how quicker it is than a standard grill. I have to admit that I burnt the first steak I tried because I wasn't expecting it to be that fast! Because it's got dual burners you can also cook at different temperatures and actually have a slow grill on one side and a fast one on the other.
As for taste, once I had the timings down, the second steak I tried was simply amazing! I was totally blown away by how much juice was left in it and the taste was 10 times better than by old grill. There's been a lot of hype about how juicy the meat is when it's grilled by the Char Broil Quantum M340 infrared grill but now I can understand why! It's easy to see why it's the favorite of many outdoor grill fanatics!
You won't believe it until you actually try it for yourself! The cooking process was impressive too. For the first time I ever I manged to cook a steak without any kind of flare ups! Needless to say our friends were really impressed with it and everyone wanted to have a go cooking! It was so much fun! I'm pretty sure they'll be getting one too!
The size of the grill is enough to handle quite a few hungry people! There is plenty of space to cook everything and the warming rack lets you take things off the grilling surface as and when they are done which lets you take everything to the table in one hit, with everything searing hot and super juicy on the inside.
The Best Choice - Yes or No?
The Char Boil Magnum 340 really is amazing and I have to say it's the best grill I've ever tried. None of us had ever experienced any food as juicy and tasty as this before. Infrared isn't just hype, it IS the ultimate way to grill. I can't say enough good things about it and if you're thinking about getting one, stop thinking and just get it! For the price the Char Broil Quantum M340 IR is the best grill, infrared or otherwise, you'll find anywhere!
And to top it off, if the best tasting steaks, burgers and dogs isn't enough, it's a breeze to clean up afterwards! When you're cooking, nothing sticks and everything is basically turned to ash. It's the easiest grill I ever cleaned! For infrared grills within this price range the Char Broil Magnum 340 really is the best choice for the price. It's been a long time since I was this happy with a product I had purchased!! Get one today and you'll be thanking me in the morning!! Superb! The best infrared grill on the market. Period!
