“Swiss Grills is dedicated to high-quality barbeques that are made to last you a lifetime…”
In the past I always thought of any product with the “Swiss” logo would be of good quality. I guess those days are gone because after taking a look at the new Swiss Grill I’ll always question that quality assurance. And taking a look from a distance you might actually think the Swiss Grill is a high-quality grill. But when you get up close you’ll see it’s an illusion.
Let’s start with the lid, the focal point of the grill. There is discoloration all along the welds. This discoloration is caused by overheating during the manufacturing process. It’s obvious that someone wasn’t paying much attention during and after the lid was built.
I suppose this wouldn’t be a huge issue if it was only cosmetic, but the overheating will also decreases corrosion resistance and degrades the durability of the stainless steel. The issue with the discoloration was on both sides of the lid as you can see.
The problems with the lid were not limited to the welds. The right side of the lid was pushed in, while the left side was pushed out.
The fact that something as bad as this got past the Swiss Grill quality control makes me wonder what’s wrong in the areas we can’t easily see. For a grill that sells for over $1,000 this just isn’t acceptable.
The drawers on 3 Drawer Module are almost useless. The drawers are half the width of the cabinet so storage capability isn’t exactly useful. I’m relatively sure this is a safety precaution to keep the cabinet from tipping over when the drawers are open. It probably would have made more sense to make the cabinet heavier and the drawers deeper instead of the cheaper way out. For $599.00 I’d want to be able to store things in the cabinet.
I didn’t even want to cook on this grill after unboxing and putting this thing together. But the grill does come with a “signature” bottle opener…
