Important Questions to Ask When Buying A Grill

by Maria "Action" Jackson 05/26/2019

There are lots of grills in the market, different in every way, with options, add-ons that might even confuse you, leaving you wondering what you want. There are many kinds of grills to buy and how to get the best grill for you.

  1. Is It Coming Assembled? Check to know how much assembly you may need to do. It might seem like a no-big-deal on the surface, but when you indulge in such an activity, you get to understand how technical and exhausting putting together a grill can be. Do you have the time? Do you have the expertise and tools? To be on a safer side, look at the product and its description or better yet, ask a sales associate to prevent surprises.
  2. Does It Have Any Warranty? If your grill develops a fault after you've bought it due to no error of yours, what are your options? Most manufacturers have a standard warranty that doesn't span beyond a year. To have peace of mind, get one that has an extensive warranty. Mistakes most buyers make is to carry a product home, not minding whether it has a warranty or not. In the end, they end up regretful.
  3. How Much Cooking Power? Here is another factor to consider when buying a grill. Will you be using it once a week? Five times a week throughout the year? Will you be grilling every single day? If you entertain many guests all at once, then output should be put into consideration. The more BTUs that a grill’s burner has, the more heat it produces, and the faster you get things done.
  4. What About Mobility? If you need to move your grill often, you need to get the best grill that’s up for the job. Get a heavy-duty wheel with lockable casters; they can dabble into potholes and still come out fine. Don't go for those grills that come with weak wheels. A broken wheel makes it hard to move your unit around. 
  5. Materials Used in Manufacturing. Materials used in the manufacturing of a grill gives you an idea about its durability. If you want a grilling product that will last for a decade, maybe even more, then consider getting the stainless steel grill. It is better due to its ability to withstand the harsh elements or environment. If you want one that will serve you for two years or maybe more, the iron cast grill might be what you need. 

The above are the significant things to consider when buying a grill. There are other factors to consider as well, like the cost, ease of cleaning, comfort, parts, etc. if you’re yet to order for a grill, go and do it now! Speak to a sales representative at the hardware store also for more information.

Maria "Action" Jackson

Maria Jackson grew up in Germany, but the first time she saw Cocoa Beach’s surf and sand, she knew she was home. That date was December 24, 1983, and although she goes back to Germany to visit often, she has never regretted her decision to stay here permanently.

Maria worked in several fields over the next few years, but they all had some link to the real estate industry.  She finally realized that was the career she was looking for and in 2004 she obtained her real estate license.  In 2019 she joined Keller Williams (KW). “I’m pretty tech savvy,” she says, “and I liked that the KW app is so up to date with the latest in marketing tools and internet sales.  I love using Social Media including Facebook, Twitter and the DSRE app.  I believe it’s important to utilize every tool at my disposal to market my customer’s listings.” Maria recently closed on a $860,000 home and credits the marketing tools to her success.

She wakes up each morning excited about what the day will bring. “Every day is a new day, a new client, a new listing.  I love the variety of learning something new every day. I’m a really good communicator and even better at being able to see the whole picture, even when my client doesn’t. Sometimes clients think they want one thing but I can point something out to them and they will do a complete reversal. It’s my job to point out all the details that sometimes they don’t see.”

Maria, who is fluent in English and German, has worked extensively with local and international investors. Although she lives in the charming Canaveral Groves community, she manages listings and transactions throughout all of Brevard County.

Maria and her husband have three grown daughters and two grandsons. They love family get-togethers and spend as much time on the water as possible. Maria devotes her volunteer time at a local elementary school and has helped host fundraising benefits for local residents in need.

Maria’s feelings haven’t changed since that first day she set eyes on the beach; she continues her love affair with Cocoa Beach and the surrounding area and knows that she made the right decision in calling this new place home all those years ago.
