Full Review – LazyMan Masterpiece Gas Grill
Lazyman claims to be the inventor of the gas grill. There is a certain legitimacy to this. As the Chicago Combustion Company they began manufacturing gas burners in the early 1930s. When they found that these burners were being used for cooking, they developed the first commercial gas broiler, the Broilburger, which was shown off at the 1939 World’s Fair.
Today, under the Lazyman name, they are focused on the very busy high-end gas grill market. The thing is, Lazyman makes great grills, but you’ve probably never heard of them. This is largely due to a lack of marketing. Lazyman has pushed the point that they invented the gas grill, this isn’t entirely true. They invented the commercial gas powered broiler and got into the gas grill market after it was already established.
So what about this grill, the Lazyman Masterpiece? This is a 48,000 BTU, 4-burner gas grill with 540 square inches of primary grilling space. It uses a ceramic briquette barrier between the stainless steel cooking grates and the standard tubular burners. The construction is all high quality stainless steel. This grill can perform and there are a number of optional upgrades available. It is not part of an large outdoor kitchen collection, however.
This gas grill isn’t a bad choice, but given the number of high end grills on the market, it shouldn’t be your first choice. There are a lot of more modern looking and cooking grills out there, and the Lazyman Masterpiece simply doesn’t stand out.
