THE ULTIMATE GAS GRILL
Sebastian Gorka shares his experience with the Solaire Infrared Grill.
Read What Other Solaire Owners Have To Say About Their Grill
I’ve had a few high end grills over the past years, but none compare to Solaire. Incredible heat, great flavor on foods and easy to maintain. By far the best grill to own.
Thank you Rett and Team for building a great product.
Paul S., Toronto, Canada
I am loving my grill (AllAbout Double Burner), the way it cooks, and the results are great!
Ron W., De Kalb Junction, NY
I would like to thank you and your entire team. I have the privilege of owning two grills, a 30” with rotisserie burner and a 42″ three burner. The quality and workmanship of both grills is second to none. Every interaction I have ever had has been Outstanding. We are considering adding a third grill the beginning of next year.
David M., Atlanta, GA
My Solaire Anywhere is great, and I also appreciate the fast and easy warranty support I got from you. I give it an ‘A’ rating! Thanks again.
Mark D, South Burlington, VT
The Solaire Demo Rental Program is an imaginative program to test the technology. I was in doubt regarding the benefits of Infrared grilling. Not anymore – the improvements over traditional gas grilling were beyond my expectations. The results should satisfy any Foodie! I have ordered my 21 inch model and can’t wait to cook with it.
Lee F., Truckee, CA
I have had the Solaire Everywhere now for about a year. It is used regularly and travels often on outings. It has become a major player in my outdoor cooking arsenal (Big Green Eggs, Weber grill, Master smoker) I have really put through its paces and it has performed outstandingly. It is my go-to grill weeknights because of its ease of use and how quickly I can get the food to the table.
The construction is second to none. One can see from the start the even the stainless steel that the cabinet is made of is thicker than the usual grills. The Rasmussen Team are always responsive if you have any questions or problems.
I know there are some that will look at the price points of their product line and wince, but believe me what you get is well worth it and much more. And it made here in the US.
Congratulations Rett, you and your team have done an outstanding job. This what “made in America” really means!
George F., Vidalia, GA
My husband and I purchased our Solaire grill in 2003. It’s still operating and has given us over 17 years of fabulous steaks, burgers, chicken etc. It was one of the best investments we have made in our home.
Solaire honors its lifetime warranty, as we had an issue several years ago with the burners and were sent replacements quickly. We now have a similar issue and I know you will send me the replacement parts.
Customer service is very knowledgeable and responsive.
If I had to replace my grill in the future, it would definitely be another Solaire.
My thanks to you your firm.
Cyndi L., West Palm Beach, FL
As a former chef, I was looking for maximum heat and the ability to cook as I used to in restaurant kitchens. I find the Solaire grill as close to that as I have experienced in a long time. I am very grateful for the great heat and for such a well-built appliance. It is well worth the price to me. So far I love it!
Ronald W., De Kalb Jct, NY
Your advertising and demo program worked for me.
My wife and I really enjoyed the grill. We used it six times during the
demo period and now I’m going to purchase one.
Brad, S., Littleton, CO
We weren’t sure what to expect but now at the end of our trial we LOVE infrared grilling. We can’t go back to conventional grilling. We have vegetarians and meat-eaters all under one roof; real meat, fake meat and vegetables all require different cook times. Veg-meat doesn’t have any fats or oils so they dry out quickly, but not on the Solaire grill, the food is cooked before the moisture evaporates. AND BONUS, we get a wonderful char on our food now without drying it out
Tracy & Barry, Utah
I just sent back my Demo Grill, and I’m already missing it! The steaks were as good as the $75 to $100 ones from a steakhouse, but the hamburgers sold us. They were the best my wife and I ever had! I can’t wait for my new bigger Solaire Grill to arrive.
Paul D., Longwood, FL [Hugh Hewitt Radio Show listener]
Received the grill today (Accent model, refurbished former demo grill). It is exactly what I’ve wanted. A beautiful li’l grill. Had my first burger an hour after it arrived. Outstanding performance and an impressive build!Absolutely no regrets. Can ya fall in love with a grill? Ha. Thank you.
Gary M., Sarasota FL
I have really enjoyed my 30 inch infrared grill with rotisserie. Had it about 12 years and still works great. High quality construction of stainless steel makes it very easy to clean and look new. I know it is high dollar when compared to other grills but it will last forever and well worth the investment. The last grill you will buy. Definitely 5 star. Thanks for putting out such a great product.
Bill R., Florence, TX
I purchased one of the Solaire units when they were first out. I knew then it was the only way to cook a perfect steak. I now have four Solaires. All of my family and friends have many. It is the only grill that I use and I show it off to all. I am very proud of it.
A few weeks ago I had a 3-star General over for dinner and cooked some steaks on my Solaire, showing him how hot it was and how quick it seared the meat. He is one that will quickly say his mind. He was very impressed, so impressed he made a note of the name of it.
You will get all my referrals and I do not want anything for them, your service is worth it. Thanks.
John, Palm Springs, CA
We have already done chicken, burgers, boneless pork chops and even a fresh flounder on our 27XL. Everything has been delicious. I really questioned how the flounder might work out but it was unbelievable! I have been doing everything on the Big Green Egg for several years, and now I will probably just use the BGE for pulled pork and ribs and do the rest on the Solaire. It’s really a great grill.
Lawrence and Monica, Jacksonville, FL
Ken, West Windsor, VT
Just showing how we are using our Solaire Infrared Grill. Don’t trash your old BBQ unit. We gutted our old unit and converted it to storage/home use for our Solaire! We tailgate with our Solaire, and this makes it easy to remove it and go on a picnic!
Our Solaire makes ground round taste like Prime Filet Mignon!
Gary F, Moorpark, CA
Impressive, impressive, impressive.
It is a rare find to do business with a company of the greatest quality and integrity.
Several years ago I purchased a Solaire Infrared Gas Grill from Lees BBQ Grill Center in Boca Raton, FL.
It was clear from the start when the salesman was enthusiastic and understood his product well as he directed me to the BEST product and into the great world of barbecuing….. I was in for terrific experience.
What I did not expect when I had an issue with the grill years later as the U Shaped Burner and Vaporizer wore out, is how fast Solaire got back to me and how easy and professional I was handled in covering the above items 100% under the warranty program.
Finding a company who stands behind their product in such an easy customer oriented manner is truly a rare find. You have me as a customer for life!
Thank you very much for a fantastic product and superior service!

“I bought a 21” pedestal Solaire all-infrared grill about two weeks ago, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never cooked meat so well, or so quickly. I was concerned that the inability to cook at low temperatures would mean overcooked or undercooked meat. However, to my surprise, this grill makes the best steaks, burgers, and seafood I’ve ever made.
I’ve long subscribed to the “start high, finish low” or “start low, finish high” philosophy, thinking that’s the only way to get a nice sear without an overcooked or undercooked interior, or a band of gray between the center and the surface. For some unknown reason, however, this seems not to apply to infrared, which cooks perfectly every time, without the need for low heat. I suspect it has something to do with the physics of infrared versus convection-based heat. Can anyone explain the physics here?
Speaking of infrared versus convection-based heat, the salmon I made on this grill was the best salmon I’ve ever made. It came out moist—not dry, like most cooked salmon—and at the perfect level of doneness, with a nicely browned exterior.
Also, I made the best scallops I’ve ever made on the grill as well, because it browns the exterior without any added fat, but gets hot enough to not turn the center to rubber. The closest I’ve come to this is cooking scallops on top of a charcoal chimney, which is much smaller and more unwieldy than a Solaire grill.”
“This will be my second Solaire grill. We have one at our primary residence and love it. I simply don’t enjoy cooking on anything else! We are building a vacation home on Lake Erie and insist on your product. Thanks again for a great product!”
Kip, Canton, OH
“I just have to tell you, how GREAT your product is. I will never cook on anything other then a Solaire Grill. I cooked on it all winter long. Nothing is better!”
Bob, Detroit, MI
“I have a 27 inch infrared Solaire, which I love. It is really great at searing meats. In particular it does an extraordinarily good job with Elk, a lean and delicate meat. Thanks so much for such a great grill!”
Lee, Denver, CO
“Love the grill, best I ever had. I am hooked on infrared burners.”
Michael, Dacula, GA
“We are very pleased with our 27” grill. The flavors and juicy-ness I am able to achieve are wonderful. It takes even a mediocre “griller” such as myself and helps me grill to perfection.”
David, Denver, CO
“I have never had such a nice grill in my 55 years. I must say no one who has had a steak at my home on your grill will ever have a steak in a restaurant again. I have spoiled them.”
Tim, Delray Beach, FL
“Last week, I purchased a Solaire Infrared Grill (model AGBQ-27GIR). We’ve used the grill every night since we received it and love how our meats have turned out. The Filet Mignon’s that we grilled were simply the best we have ever had! Thanks for making such a great product.”
Doug, Chicago, IL
“Best thing I’ve ever purchased! Grilling never tasted any better than this!”
Sam, Cypress, TX
“I received my 27″ basic grill + accessories last night. I just wanted to say that you guys do one heck of job! As a pretty good woodworker with some metal experience, I truly appreciate the quality of work/workmanship your company performs. You should be very pleased with your workers especially in this day and age.”
Harry, Denton, TX
“I know to most customers it is all about the product. From what I have researched, you guys have that, no problem. However, I also put weight on the customer support and let me say you are light years ahead of most. I could give you some names of higher priced grill manufacturers that just don’t put much into it. No wonder your company has been around so long. You’re doing it right, and this comes from a 68 year old retired construction company owner that has been around the block a few times.”
“Finished the install today and leaving for Key West tomorrow morning. Rett, you guys build some nice stuff. Really impressed with the quality and workmanship of the grill and the accessories I got. I will be the first to recommend both you and Jim. As you can see from the pics, I built the grill station in a railing alcove that was useless space. The whole assembly is suspended about 3″ above the deck to allow a hatch to slide closed that is beneath it. Next s a custom made canvas cover. Thanks again for a great product and excellent service.”

“My wife and I have used your portable since approximately 2003/2004. It is outstanding! However, while the case/hood seem indestructible, I feel it is time to replace the burner/regulator/igniter units. Can I buy these parts to give the old girl a new life? I cannot count the burgers/chops/salmon/steaks/chicken breasts which we have cooked over the years. Well done!!”
Rob & Kerri,
“This is our second grill (Solaire Everywhere). We love it! This one is for the RV!”
Lauren, Layton, UT
“I fired-up my Anywhere grill for the first time tonight and I was thoroughly impressed by performance, ease of set-up and take-down. What a great little grill! Even on Low, it put beautiful char on the sausages, and clean-up was as easy as any piece of cooking equipment could be. As a consumer, it’s a rare treat to buy a product that turns-out to be better than you expected. Thanks!”
“Hello friends..! I had called last week because I was lucky enough to inherit an Anywhere Solaire grill from my grandfather who had never once used the wonderful thing!! I called because I wanted to make sure all of my adjustments were correct and Rich walked me right though it! I have to say ..I used it recently and followed all your instructions to the T and had the best steaks I have ever made on a grill!! I cannot wait to spread the gospel of the Solaire to everyone I know and see how many grill masters we can convert to the SOLAIRE SIDE!!
I cannot thank you enough for your help..It truly made me believe there is a reason to stick with your name and not a knock off at a cheaper price!!
Thanks again so much..I still cannot believe this wonderful grill had NEVER been used..!! Some folks are just too intimidated by something that is new and different..!! (Which was of course my good fortune!)”
Kerry K, Pittsburgh PA
“I am from Canada, and I do not have any Solaire retailers nearby, so while I was in Palm Springs, I took advantage of my location and bought the Solaire Anywhere grill. On the few occasions that I have used this grill back home it has worked beyond my expectations. I was using it in -40F conditions (no joke), and it heated up in under 2 minutes. I was able to cook two 1 1/2” steaks to medium in under 4 minutes flat. It gave perfect grill marks, and produced the juiciest steaks I can remember.
Andrew, Winnipeg, Manitoba
“I purchased the Solaire 27XL free standing grill about seven years ago. This has been the most incredible cooking device that I have ever owned. It was worth multiples of what I paid for it at the time. I have had family members begging for invitations for BBQ at our house! Your grill is a superb product.”
Reed, Boca Raton, FL
“I am very pleased with my AGBQ-27G Solaire Infrared Grill.
By the way, it is my “just one man’s opinion”, but I firmly believe that if Tom Hanks had this grill and a few head of cattle…..he would never have left the island.
I’ve owned almost every “sure-fire” grill, to end all grills….Lynx…Bull…Viking….Wolf….Members Mark..etc… However your unobtrusive, Clark Kent look-alike, really does possess the ability to take a steak, tuna, albacore, salmon, etc….to the level of the professional chef…..and dare I say….beyond. Given the proper seasonings, I would feel quite comfortable in challenging ANYONE, who does not have this fantastic grill, including the below-mentioned Food Channel Superstars.
If this is a steak cook-out…..Emeril…pack your bags…Two Hot Tamales…stick to tacos….Bobby Flay..Just chill….don’t grill.
If I were a few years younger, I would gladly take this unit, issue challenges around the planet, and show the world what a truly gourmet steak tastes like.”
Terry, Temecula, CA
“The Solaire Anywhere Grill that got to me just before Fathers Day, I must say is heaven in a little silver box! I cannot honestly remember the last time my wife has clapped after every bite of food that she ate after having steak for the first time on the Anywhere grill. Well done on this product, we love it!”
Chris, Houston, TX
“I took a few metal shop classes in junior and senior high school, so I know good work when I see it. While I work in the Information Technology business where everything is made by machines, I appreciate anything well-made by a human worker. Thank you for the fine workmanship your company performed on my Solaire Anywhere Portable Infrared Grill (marine-grade stainless steel version). I wish that the rest of America’s manufacturing companies would learn from your example: customers are prepared to pay more money for superior craftsmanship. Also, your company proves that a small American business can manufacture the finest products with American labor and materials.”
Alexander, Cambridge, MA
“We have your Solaire Anywhere portable infrared grill. Believe me, we do use it anywhere and everywhere on this big island – beach, ocean, volcano areas and woodlands. Hawaii is the perfect place for your product. Just love it!”
Karl & Marsha, Kailua Kona, Hawaii
“I purchased a Solaire Anywhere grill. I live in Anchorage, Alaska, and on several occasions have grilled a steak when it was zero degrees F outside. the steak comes out perfect, even at that temperature. Takes maybe two extra minutes in the cold, but no complaints whatsoever. In the summertime, a marinated salmon filet is done in less than five minutes. Thanks for a great product. Well worth the price.”
Greg, Anchorage, AK
“If there was a Hall of Fame for grills I would nominate your Solaire Anywhere portable grill. What a great product. Better than advertised. Restaurant quality cooking at home. I will be retiring my old gas grill that I paid $1400.00 for and the Solaire will be the standard in which all gas grills will be measured against.. In a word…WOW… No make that two WOWS…”
Larry, Boston, MA
“Thank you. We are most impressed with how well we have been able to grill hot dogs and hamburgers at baseball games for the Miami Marlins. Now we’re movin up to the Big Time: yellowtail fillets. Your help is very appreciated.”
Wolf, Miami, FL
“From my own experience I can tell you that owning a Solaire has taken all the thrill out of eating a steak at a high end steak house. I’m almost always disappointed because I can do it better on my Solaire grill. You truly have built the best gas grill on the planet.”
Kevin, Boulder, CO
“I have enjoyed my grill so far, and look forward to experimenting more. Just about every time I cook is an experiment. That is the fun of it.”
Frank, Baton Rouge, LA
“This grill is absolutely the best of the best. I have owned five other brands, including W—- and T–. None come even close to the quality and performance of the Solaire.”
Ron, Franklin Square, NY
“Takes a little learning but well worth the effort!”
Joe, Columbia, SC
“I also bought the portable version and love it too! Your grills have completely changed my grilling habits. It is no longer something I have to plan ahead for – your grills heat up and cook so fast, it can be a last minute decision! My microwave is getting a long overdue rest!”
Randy, Stone Mountain, GA
“By the way, it’s the best grill I’ve ever used.”
Max, St. Louis, MO
“We had the best V—– that money can buy. We were so pleased with the results of the Solaire (for our cabin), that we got rid of our almost-new V—– and bought a second Solaire for our home!”
Sue, Plymouth, MN
“Really terrific grill!!”
Phillip, Opelousas, LA
“Comparison shopping, with a magnet, convinced me that you are the only truthful stainless steel product on the market.”
Henry, Arlington Heights, IL
Ross, Pacific Palisades, CA
“I don’t tell anyone about Solaire – all I have to do is serve a steak, seasoned only with salt and cooked medium rare on my Solaire grill. And that’s served with homemade fries cooked in the fryer basket on the burner right next to the steaks. Words do not have to be (and usually aren’t) spoken after that. It’s a religious experience!”
David, Charleston, SC
“Wonderful! Wonderful! Most sophisticated barbecue I ever owned.”
Ian, Victoria, BC, Canada
“We cooked on it the day we got it and our steaks were wonderful and were juicy and fast. Like going out to eat, just as good if not better.”
Martrecia, Amarillo, TX
“First steaks … AWESOME!”
Patrick, Lake Forest, IL
“I have only had the opportunity to use the grill twice. It did a great job both times, cooking steaks to perfection. I am upgrading from another model Infrared and already see a vast improvement.”
Duane, Durham, NC
“We LOVE this grill (AGBQ-27GXL). It is definitely one of our prize possessions. I cannot believe how good it cooks. Steaks are phenomenal. I purchased one for my Dad and a Solaire Anywhere for my friend as a gift. They both love them too.”
Rick, Fort Myers, FL
