A: You’ll find options like plastic, cast aluminum, cast iron, porcelain-coated and stainless steel out there. If you are looking for a grill that will stand up to the elements outdoors, stainless steel is the top choice. If you will bring the grill inside for storage, a lightweight plastic or aluminum model should work fine.

Among the stainless steel varieties, heavy grade steel and folded or reinforced edges are signs that the grill is well-constructed.

An important part of grill construction is stability—since a stable grill is a safe grill (safety first, people!). Give the grill a push from different angles before you make your purchase to make sure that it doesn’t wobble or sway.
