Full Review – Saber Cast 330

Saber is a sister company of Char-Broil and it uses the technology that they licenses from grill genius Bill Best of TEC Grills to built this all infrared gas grill for a discount price. Now I know what you are thinking, at around $900USD for a tiny, two-burner gas grill isn’t exactly a discount price. A big part of the reason for this higher price is the quality of the materials that go into the Saber 330 Cast Infrared Gas Grill.

While this grill does use some cast aluminum parts, all the stainless steel used is high grade 304. This makes for a much more durable grill than much of the competition. All around, this is a very well built grill that is reliable, solidly constructed, and virtually foolproof. At the same time it is one of the smallest freestanding grills on the market and comes with nothing other than two burners. A very nice rotisserie system is available for this grill, but it too, isn’t inexpensive.

For those looking to do straightforward grilling in small amounts, this is a good choice. The infrared system makes grilling as simple as possible. The heat of the two standard tubular burners is converted to infrared through a diffuser plate that radiates heat but greatly limits airflow. The heat is dry and hot (though not the kind of heat you get with more traditional infrared). This grill will not flare-up or burn foods uncontrollably and requires only minimal monitoring.

The infrared system also makes this one of the most fuel efficient gas grills on the market. The two main burners run at a maximum of only 8,000 BTUs and yet the grill can reach cooking temperatures well above 500 degrees F. It will perform like the best gas grills, only in a very small package.
