Four Burner BBQ Grill

Cuisinart’s 4-Burner Gas Grill is perfect for outdoor cooking. With its 44,000 BTUs of heat and 443 square inches of grilling space to work with, you can cook up a feast in no time at all! Set the grill on your deck or patio by removing it from its stand – easy peasy! And if that isn’t enough room for you (or maybe some hungry guests), there’s also an additional 202 sq ft warming rack built right into this bad boy just waiting to be used.

The Cuisinart Four-Burner Gas Grill is made for those who take grilling seriously. The generous cast iron cooking grate retains heat longer and radiates it more evenly than a wire grate. It has 443 square inches of cooking space and a warming rack with an additional 167 square inches, for a total of 610 square inches cooking space.

The warming rack of the grill is a great feature that helps manage timing by keeping cooked foods warm while other foods finish cooking. It’s a great place to keep grilled vegetables warm, or for placing hamburger and hotdog buns, focaccia, and other breads so that they absorb the delicious smoky flavors of the grill as they toast.

An outdoor grill needs to be able to weather the elements without rusting and that’s why we’ve made the Cuisinart Four-Burner Gas Grill from stainless steel. The cover, fascia, control knobs, and burners are made of stainless steel so they won’t rust, and the steel cart is finished with an enamel paint that makes it easy to maintain.

  • COOKING POWER: Four 11, 000 BTU burners provide a total 44, 000 BTUs of cooking power
  • COOKING SPACE: The grill is equipped with 443 square inch of cooking space with an additional 167 square inch warming rack
  • CAST IRON GRATES: Heavy-duty cast iron cooking grates are great for retaining heat
  • PREP SPACE: Two 18″ x 13″ side tables provide ample space for food prep
  • CONSTRUCTION: Stainless Steel lid and control panel. Actual product may vary from images shown due to product enhancement.
  • INCLUDED FEATURES: Grill utilizes drip tray to collect grease and drippings. 4-foot LP hose to connect the grill and the 20lb propane tank (propane not included).

Cuisinart CGG-7400 Propane, 54 Inch, Full Size Four-Burner Gas Grill

This is the perfect spot to escape from the pool to in the summer or for your teenagers to have some downtime with their friends during holiday breaks. It’s got a homey, rustic feel inside the luxury of the addition but it’s not over-the-top enough to cause an overwhelming disturbance. We love the interest the different tile shapes and tones add to the area and how the stone structure has that same appeal.


This space was made for entertaining. With a backyard big enough, you can create an area that’s purely for party and event purposes. The fireplace creates a focal point to the entire area and you’ve got enough room for everyone to mix and mingle without feeling cramped or awkward.We love how the food preparation area is kept on one end of the spectrum but with enough layout and space to prepare and serve.



Relaxed, romantic and made for intimacy, we’re swooning over the welcoming feel of this outdoor space. Everything is at an arm’s reach and everything you could want to have in a bit of backyard R&R is right at your fingertips. Fire up the grill as you take a dip in the pool, and once the sun goes down mosey on over to warm up a bit. And take a look at the better view below, you’ll get an even better look at the breakfast bar!



Of course, you can always find a fireplace that inspires you artistically and not just in a functional sense. Take this kitchen design for example, created on a penthouse step, you don’t even need a backyard for your contemporary, fashion-forward visionary to come to light. It’s big enough to host a simple get together and cozy enough to enjoy on your own.



There’s something about this space that gives it a “holiday weekend” type feel. It may not be the area you would find at a tropical resort, but it’s definitely something you’d find on a trip to you mountains in the fall or winter when skiing looms and we’re loving that you can bring it right into your backyard. Multiple spots to grill and a warmth to create an ambiance, what’s not to love? A simple setting with a womanly, delicate touch, this gazebo is absolutely darling. Of course you can edge it up a bit for a guy’s night in, but there’s something about a feminine design that makes everyone feel at ease and right at home. Make your meal and head over to sit and enjoy the night’s dish under the stars.



A bit less “grand” in the design factor and more functional in usage, this space is again a luxury to any family but more subdued in style. Everything that you need in an outdoor kitchen is right at your fingertips. But the best part about the space, in our eyes, is the organically-inspired, stone foundation – the texture is such an inspiring addition especially when paired with the red and white cemented tiles.



Essentially this is a set up with more bells and whistles to choose from. Even when a storm is brewing outside, you can enjoy this space with more leisure and less worry. You can keep your indoor cooking center for the family and use this to host any dinner party or event. And the layout again, creates a beautiful focal point and the overhead coverage helps when the rain hits (and doesn’t spoil the fun or the food).

We absolutely love this space! Why is that you ask? Well, for one things, you truly get to enjoy your backyard without any overhead interruptions and there’s a great view for any landscaping work or gardening that you may be doing. It greatly utilizes the area and it mixes opulence with traditional styles, making it impressive for guests but homey for the family too.



This stone set up has a style all its own. In fact, we’re loving the mixing of textures between the grill station and flooring. The more texture the more interest and design appeal, which is what we love in fashion-forward, modern thinking and interior visions. All this space needs are some dinner guests to get the party going!

When you think “outdoor kitchen” it doesn’t necessarily have to be an entire “room” built outside, instead it can just be a station added right in. It can be a place you can easily cook up some lunch in the summertime and offer a spot to roast marshmallows when the sun sets in the evenings. Instead, it’s merely an extra addition, or accessory have you, to your fabulous pool area! There’s just one simple word to describe this view and that’s “Wow!” From the patio space to the lounge chairs surrounding the pit to the TV, what family and friends wouldn’t enjoy this spot all year round?


We love the chic, clean feeling of this outdoor space. It’s a no mess-fuss spot that creates a perfect, neutral foundation for everything from entertaining casually or entertaining for a bigger event hosted at your home. Of course, it’s also great for family night, when you can just enjoy your loved ones company without the stress of hosting.
