Blaze Grill Reviews – Professional and LTE Gas Grills, Griddle, Kamado and More!

Blaze is a company known for their premium quality stainless steel gas grills. When you want the best for your backyard, this is the brand that you can trust.

But the company’s product range expands way beyond gas grills — Blaze also offers excellent charcoal and kamado grills as well as outdoor kitchen modules and refrigerators. The products are built with durable materials and are designed to last a lifetime.

In this guide, we will take a proper look at different types of Blaze grills from built-in and stand-alone gas grills to griddles, kamados, and even electric models.

So let’s press the ignition, turn up the heat, and see which Blaze grills are worth your money!

Before we go into the reviews, here are a few more reasons why Blaze makes some of the best outdoor kitchen grills:

  • All grills are built with premium-quality 304 stainless steel (or cast aluminum) and covered with a lifetime warranty.
  • The grills are designed so that they are easy to use and clean, and any part can be replaced if needed.
  • Blaze grills have a double-lined hood for better heat insulation. It will also stay nice and shiny on the outside.
  • The company has great customer service. If you notice any defects or some part gives in after years of use, they will be happy to ship you new replacement parts.

Blaze Premium LTE Gas Grill Review (Freestanding & Built-In)

Blaze Premium LTE is the brand’s best-selling product line delivering impeccable quality and great cooking performance while providing excellent value for money.

The Premium LTE grills are available as stand-alone or built-in models, and in addition to the 32-inch, 4-burner unit below, you can also choose a larger 40-inch, 5-burner unit.

Specifications:

  • Fuel Type: Propane/natural gas
  • Number of Main Burners: 4
  • Additional Burners: 10,000 BTU infrared rotisserie burner

The Blaze Premium LTE grills have a polished design that looks great and is very functional.

The grill is made of 304 stainless steel entirely, except 443 stainless that contains titanium is used for some interior components. This ensures better durability during repeated heating and cooling phases.

Using and cleaning the grill is intuitive and straightforward. The cooking area is large, heats up fast, and the thick triangular rods give great grill marks to your steaks.

There is a thick flame stabilizing grid that covers the cooking area preventing flare-ups. It also guarantees even heat without any hot or cold spots. The heat zone separators allow you to sear on high heat above one burner while cooking on a lower heat with the next burner.

Want to cook after sunset? No problem!

In addition to the LED illuminated control knobs, there are halogen lights so you can always see what you’re grilling.

The Premium LTE grills come with a 10,000 BTU infrared rear burner, but if you want a rotisserie kit, you have to buy it separately.

These grills are stylish, functional, and offer a professional-level cooking experience!

The Blaze Professional LUX grills present top-notch craftsmanship from top to bottom. The grill looks very elegant and is made with thick and durable 304 stainless steel.

The full-width grease tray, similar to the Premium LTE line models reviewed above, catches all the drippings, so cleaning is easy. But instead of the triangular rods, the cooking area is covered with even thicker 12 mm hexagonal rods for restaurant-quality sear lines.

The grilling area is also bigger — you can fit around 25 burgers on the 615-square-inch cooking grid.

And, of course, there are LED lights and halogen lights for nighttime grilling. And for the Professional LUX series, the rotisserie kit is included in the deal!

Blaze Premium LTE vs Professional LUX – What’s The Difference?

The price difference between the Blaze Premium LTE and Professional LUX models is quite big.

So what are you getting if you choose a more expensive Professional LUX grill?

You can get some clue by looking at how much each grill weighs — 183 lbs (Premium LTE above) compared to 315 lbs (Pro LUX).

Yeah, you guessed right, the Pro models are built thicker and more durable.

Here is a detailed look at the differences between these two product lines:

  • Burners: Pro has bigger and heavier H-shaped burners with 18,000 BTUs each vs 14,000 BTU burners on LTE models.
  • Ignition: Pro has individual backup flash tubes on each burner.
  • Flame Tamers: Pro has heavier 12-gauge stainless flame tamers vs 14-gauge on LTE.
  • Grill Grates: 12 mm hexagonal rods on Pro vs 9 mm triangular on the LTE.
  • Rotisserie Kit: Included in Pro models and sold separately for LTE models.
  • Temp Gauge: Pro shows two readings, grill ambient temp and grill surface temp.
  • Cart: Pro comes with a mostly pre-assembled cart that has 2 drawers and a door, while the LTE cart needs assembly and has 2 doors.
  • Side Shelves: Pro has foldable side shelves that are bigger vs fixed on LTE.

Below is a great video that explains the differences between Blaze Premium LTE vs Pro grills in more detail. It will also describe how these grills are built and what makes them so special.

Blaze Premium LTE 30-Inch Gas Griddle Review (Freestanding & Built-In)

If you like cooking breakfast outdoors, the Blaze Premium LTE griddle might just be the best option for you. Of course, it can handle the burgers, steaks, and hot dogs too.

Another thing is that when you are building a complete outdoor kitchen, you might want to have a separate griddle in addition to a gas grill. This flat-top grill is available as a freestanding or built-in configuration.

Blaze Premium LTE 30-Inch Gas Griddle

If you want the built-in version of this griddle, just choose the built-in configuration on BBQGuys online store.

Specifications:

  • Fuel Type: Propane/natural gas
  • Number of Main Burners: 2
  • Total BTU: 36,000
  • Cooking Area (sq.in): 495
  • Weight: 228 lbs
  • Build Materials: 304 stainless steel
  • Dimensions: 32″ x 28″ x 36.25″ (W x D x H)
  • Warranty: Lifetime warranty for all stainless steel components and a 1-year warranty for electrical and ignition components

The Blaze LTE gas griddle comes with pretty much the same features as the Blaze Premium LTE gas grill reviewed earlier in this guide.

It’s a powerful beast with two stainless steel U-shaped burners providing even heat across the cooking surface. Made entirely of 304 stainless steel, it’s as sleek and durable as the Blaze gas grills.

The griddle is fun to use, easy to clean and has a stainless steel lid that protects it when not in use. If you like flat top grills, then this is probably the best you can find!

What We Love

  • Versatile
  • Great for cooking breakfast
  • Easy and fun to use
  • Made with durable stainless steel
  • LED-illuminated control knobs
  • Lifetime warranty for all stainless steel parts

What We Don’t

  • Not the best option for cooking large pieces of meat

Blaze 21-Inch Electric Grill Review (Tabletop & Freestanding & Built-In)

Some grillmasters might frown on electric grills and tell you it’s not possible to cook tasty food with them. But I can bet they never tried the Blaze electric grill!

This unit gets hot enough to give you a proper sear, and the flame tamers under the heating element vaporize drippings for a more authentic barbecue flavor. And you can use this grill even on balconies and patios where open flame is not allowed.

Blaze 21-Inch Electric Grill

Note: The above links are for the tabletop version, but you can also choose a freestanding or built-in configuration.

Specifications:

  • Wattage: 1500
  • Primary Grilling Area (sq.in): 274
  • Warming Rack Area (sq.in): 79
  • Weight: 228 lbs
  • Build Materials: 304 stainless steel
  • Dimensions: 32″ x 28″ x 36.25″ (W x D x H)
  • Warranty: Lifetime warranty for all stainless steel components and a 1-year warranty for heating element and ignition components

Blaze puts a lot of effort into product quality and brand image — they don’t want to tarnish it with any mediocre products. And this electric grill completely lives up to what you can expect from a Blaze grill.

The cooking performance of this grill is excellent, thanks to the powerful heating element and the grill grates made with triangular 9 mm stainless steel rods.

Using the Blaze electric grill is very straightforward, and the smart design makes cleaning effortless.

Most drippings are vaporized when they hit the flame tamers, and what’s left will flow into the pull-out grease tray. You can flip the heating element up to remove and clean the flame tamers.

To make things safe, this grill is water resistant, has a built-in 60-minute timer with automatic shut-off, and comes with a 7,5-foot power cord that has a built-in GFCI breaker.

What We Love

  • Gets hot enough for searing
  • Easy and fast to clean
  • Comes with a long power cord
  • Water-resistant design
  • Automatic shut-off function
  • Lifetime warranty for all stainless steel components

What We Don’t

  • Smaller cooking area compared to Blaze gas grills

Blaze 20-Inch Kamado Grill Review

Blaze has an interesting take on the kamado — made entirely out of cast aluminum, this shiny grill and smoker is great for both high heat searing and cooking low ‘n slow.

Blaze 20-Inch Kamado Grill

Note: The above links are for the kamado grill only, but you can also choose to buy it with a regular or deluxe cart (just choose the configuration you want on BBQGuys online store).

Specifications:

  • Fuel Type: Charcoal
  • Cooking Area (sq.in): 400
  • Weight: 161 lbs
  • Build Materials: 304 stainless steel
  • Dimensions: 21.87″ x 21.87″ x 33.87″ (W x D x H)
  • Warranty: Lifetime

The Blaze kamado is built for ultimate durability. Made with thick cast aluminum, it’s easy to clean and doesn’t corrode — this grill is virtually indestructible.

Even the gasket that is often the weakest part in kamados has been eliminated and replaced by a cast-in tongue-and-groove seal on the lid.

Kamado grills are excellent at retaining heat, and controlling airflow is critical for keeping things smooth. The Blaze kamado has excellent vents and dampers to make this task easy.

The Blaze kamado has sturdy 12 mm cooking grates and comes with an additional smaller grate that can be used nearer the heat. The removable ash pan makes cleaning a breeze.

Blaze also has a rotisserie kit designed for this kamado (sold separately).

The only reason not to get this grill is if you want things easy — using a kamado requires some time and effort.

What We Love

  • Great for both grilling and slow smoking
  • Excellent heat retention
  • Spring-assisted hinge makes opening the lid easy
  • Almost indestructible
  • Comes with protective cooking gloves
  • Lifetime warranty on all parts

What We Don’t

  • Takes more effort to use than gas grills
