Main Characteristics

For strong heat distribution over 600 square inches of cooking area. Those four burners max out at 50,000 BTU’s of heating power for a nice range of heat control.

The extra burners give you an added bonus 400 square inches of cooking space to get you up with the premium grills. All of this sits over a cabinet for storing all your go to grill tools, herbs, spices, and condiments.

Design

While this grill isn’t all stainless steel black is used well for a professional workmanlike design. The tools in this chest however are the stainless steel burners. A cast aluminum oven provides you with a strong long lasting lid for your grill. The side arms can fold up or down to suit your current grilling needs with enough room for you to do some prep or store the buns for plating.

The cabinet also provides a nice storage area complete with shelves. Speaking of shelves the best part of the folding sides is the built in shelving space perfect for storing any snacks or refreshments while you grill. The combination of stainless steel and aluminum shouldn’t be too difficult to clean.

The design is overall pretty basic with just a bit of technological flare thrown into certain areas like the controls covered below. With that being said this grill still looks pretty impressive and tough with just the right attention to detail to please most grill customers.

Special Features

Broil King Sovereign XLS 90Here is where Broil King stepped in to add a bit of a special touch in more ways than one. On touch we have Sensi-Touch control knobs which allow you to easily set your grill surface to precise temperatures for multiple different cooking styles. Broil Kings trademark is their stainless steel Flav-R-Wave cooking system that vaporizes the juices of your food to put a bit of extra grilling flavor into any of your cooking. This is also nice for clean up as the vaporization minimizes the excess waste.

A propane grill that does not light on command is not a good propane grill so they have a Sure Light ignition system so the grill heats up quickly with an even heat distribution. The features continue all the way to the bottom with locking caster wheels so you can stay stable even on uneven surfaces. The pedigree here is on control and flavor for a durable grill that always delivers something special.

Warranty

With a primarily stainless steel build and strong materials this grill is built to last but that doesn’t mean they slacked off on the warranty. The cook box has a limited lifetime warranty that covers the lid, control panel, and housing. The stainless steel Dual-Tube burners and the rear rotisserie burner are warrantied for ten years against all defects in material or workmanship. The stainless steel Flav-R-Wave cooking system, stainless steel cooking grates, and stainless steel cart components are warranted for five years. While all remaining parts and paint are warranted for two years. A pretty good and standard setup for a grill under the premium range.
