A note about Stainless Steel: You might notice in your research that our stainless grill uses 14,000 BTU's and the aluminum grills are set for over 20,000 BTU. For an explanation of this, we sought out the advice of our crack service department technical advisors. Here's what they say: "BTU rating are simply a calculation based primarily on gas pressure & orifice size, or the amount & type of gas burning per hour. (heat output per hour). Since stainless steel retains heat better than the other grill materials, it requires less gas to heat SS grills to the same temperature, therefore SS grills are intentionally designed with a slightly smaller orifice in the gas valve than black grills. You could say that SS grills get better "gas mileage" than black grills. All full sized Holland grills, no matter which material, are designed to heat to the SAME temperature. It is TEMPERATURE that cooks your food, not BTU's." Couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks Dan!

Had my Apex grill for over 4 years. They say a dog is Man's best friend; no, it is the Apex grill if the Man enjoys grilling. The number one reason this grill out performs any other grill is because it is in Made in the USA! Excellent company - Excellent grill!

The entire Holland Line except for the Maverick we have owned. We currently own four Holland grills. And we gave our daughter one for Christmas, my father-in-law a Companion a few years back. My first Holland that we bought was after the Wisconsin State Fair backyard cookout demo. I'm guessing 10-12 years ago. I have had zero trouble with any of them, it is the only clean, healthy, flare up free grill that we have cooked with. I do a lot of grilling 12 months out of the year, even in the cold Wisconsin weather. Our stove in the house is rarely used. We are so spoiled cooking for ourselves, burgers, chicken, turkey, any pork or pulled pork, roasts and my specialty is prime rib and steaks. Our children's friends love coming over for the burgers, they are the best. The cooking technology is perfect and you won't replace these grills for twenty years or more as I see no deterioration. Buy a Holland Grill there great!!

Had the Apex for 7 years. Have used it every week in Southern and Northern Ca in outdoor temps from 90 to below freezing. Looks brand new and no repair issues whatsoever. Best part is it cooks the same (perfectly) every time and doesn't use much fuel. Have read some reviews about slower than expected cooking which I have also experienced. Turned out it was either spider webs in the gas orifice or the air regulator needed adjustment. Both issues are covered in the owner's manual and easily corrected. Worth every penny.
