Ducane Natural Gas Grill: The Affinity 3100

Updated on August 25, 2011

The Ducane Affinity 3100 is an affordable, but reasonably good quality, natural gas grill. It comes with three large stainless steal burners rated at 3600 BTUs, more than enough power for cooking for a small group of friends in no time. The cooking area without being large is roomy enough for a comfortable cooking experience and the side table’s surfaces help to keeps all the kitchens utensils at hand. The cooking grates, warming racks, and the heat distribution plates are made of porcelain-enameled, a material used often in more expensive grills than the Affinity. Overall, a good value for the money.

I know that some purists must be frowning at the idea of grilling with a gas grill. But in today world people are searching for faster and easy ways to do everything. And one of the principal advantages of the Ducane Affinity 3100 and other gas grills is that they permit to save time. Because they will grill your meal faster than a charcoal one and they will clean easy and in no time afterwards.

In addition, the Ducane is a very easy to use grill. The electronic ignition always is a nice feature to have. On the lid, there is a center mounted thermometer for keeping tabs on the temperature. Heat distribution is good. And overall design is neat and smart. A great grill that performs well without anything fancy to inflate the price.

What it concerns me when buying a grill is the performance at the hour of cooking my meals. Frankly, I don’t want anything fancy, only a grill that will be able to do the job. The Affinity 3100 perhaps is not the best natural gas grill on the market, but it is a grill that will cook your barbecues without fail for a really reasonable price.
