Modern grills are designed to be functional, easy to use, and durable. But there comes a time when they start to deteriorate, and it is better to replace them than to pay for repairs. Most budget grills will last for 3 – 5 years, while top models can stay for 10 years and sometimes longer. Here are some signs you may need to purchase a new BBQ.
Visible Damage to the Outer Layer
If the other layer of your grill is starting to show lots of chips and it has lost its aesthetic appeal, you should start looking at a new BBQ. There are lots of great options on the market for budgets of all kinds. Once the finish starts to wear away, your main concern will be rust. The finish is not only important for visual appeal, it also protects the inner parts of the grill.
If you do not already have a range hood, now is the time to install one. Quality BBQ range hoods will last a long time and keep running efficiently as long as you keep the filters clean. The most obvious sign to show you that your filters need cleaning is by checking the suction. If it is struggling to remove smoke or they physically look clogged up, you may need a replacement.
Modern range hoods come with several benefit:
- Advanced filtration systems
- High powered suction systems
- Quiet roof mount fans
No matter how well you look after your grill, they will begin to fail. Every kitchen appliance becomes obsolete after a certain period and a BBQ is no different. Eventually, wear and tear will have a negative effect on performance. If you notice that your grill no longer works well or you need to constantly have it repaired, you may want to consider a new unit.
There are times when there is nothing wrong with your grill other than it is getting old and you would like something more modern. The grill market is in a constant state of evolution and with each new year comes a new model with cool new features. If you have an old grill and want new features, you will need an upgrade.
As you can see, there are many obvious signs you need a new grill. This article has highlighted some of the main ones. When your grill starts to age and you can no longer find parts, it is best to look at a modern replacement.
