Waste of money
Paid over $1200 for this BBQ. It's terrible!
1. Heats unevenly - hot and cold spots.
2. Rest shelf is too low, always burn your hand on it when trying to reach food at the rear of the grill or plate.
3. Fat on drip tray and flame tamers catches fire.
4. Drip tray ready to throw out after a month.
5. Very difficult to regulate heat.
6. Very poor cooking results!
How can companies even put such a poor product on the market is beyond me.
Going back to Weber, even though they aren't as good as they used to be.
Rubbish - not built to last at all
Paid top dollar as a Christmas present and felt that I had paid the money for a brand we could trust to last. Loved it initially but It has now all rusted out and last week, having replaced the flame covers that had fallen to pieces literally, I burnt to cinders a whole lot of ribs. No consistency in the temperature and you need to stand by it the whole time you are cooking to monitor it. The drip tray has rusted out as has one of the burners. Not impressed by the rust spots on the outside either given the supposed quality of the stainless steel. Most disappointed.
Planned obsolescence - Waste of money
We paid $1200 - less than 3 years later it's scrap. Can't access any spare parts - Masport doesn't seem to make them anymore. Looks nice, has done a good job but is nothing more than scrap metal now - burners gone, drip tray rusted through.
Do not buy Masport. Waste of money
Peice of crap
Two summers in and have had to replace the cover which I took on the chin.
Always stored under cover with the cover on.
Now I'm waiting for mitre ten to get back to me regarding replacement burner tubes and drip tray that have rusted/burnt out.
Wouldn't recommend this BBQ at all.
We thought that we were lucky in getting a 'free' BBQ with our Fujitsu air conditioning and were thrilled when a Masport branded product was that BBQ given the solid reputation the brand has with other appliances.
We were also chuffed to see the enamel plates and grill and wrapped with the non-stickiness of them.
Sadly, the BBQ hasn't lasted. The first thing to fall apart was the cover, followed by the grey-painted surfaces, then the burners which, despite being stainless steel have all burnt out to leave the front of the grill cold and the...back scorchingly hot - which has wrecked the grill's enamel. I've also worked out that spare parts are a challenge too. There have just been too many things fall apart on this BBQ. It's replacement is being delivered at the end of the week meaning that the Masport didn't even make it to 5years - which is a big shame for the Masport brand.
The best bbq experience
This bbq is amazing! I have full control of the heat with 6 burners.
I use it 4days a week, cooks perfect every time :)
Not like my previous bbq uneven heat paid $1500.
Very solid build made to last, looks like a million dollars.
Recommend it to every one, the best bbq!
