Podcasting is the way....or so I thought. Poor Richie sounds like we are taping his confession before the execution, so I am actually writing a post.

The whole outside lifestyle movement has spawned a new upscale invention...The Pro Grill. The brands to consider are Viking, Lynx and DCS. Typically the sizes start at 27" with 54" being the largest. These products have all stainless construction which prevents weathering and heavy BTU output for cooking fast.

Features to consider

1. Side burners- 15,000 BTUs for cooking

2. Pro sear- The pro sear element cooks the outside faster leaving the inside juicy

3. Rotisserie- Kind of self explanatory, but look for the infra red in the back for even cooking

4. Smoker accessory for smokey flavor

Now lets watch poor Richie


A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
