The following article will lay out the advantages and disadvantages of the 18 grills mentioned above and show you some of the more relevant information you should focus on, such as body construction and installation type.

If you're trying to find a new RCS stainless steel grill, you'll want to get to know the brand first. Founded in 1949 by Ralph Cunningham, RCS is a family-owned company. RCS sells affordable and high-end products, so if you want to invest more money on a durable grill, you'll be able to find one. Aside from manufacturing grills, it makes side burners, doors, drawers, refrigeration, sinks, and liners. It provides owner's manuals and how-to instructions online that you can access if you ever need help using your grill. Now that you have some more knowledge on the brand, take some time to read about RCS stainless steel grills.

Stainless steel grills are able to tolerate intense weather conditions and are bacteria-resistant, protecting your food from contaminants while you're cooking. With excellent resistance to corrosion, they will stay in great condition for long-term use. They are easy to clean, so you can save time when it comes to dealing with any residue or spills. However, they don't retain heat very well, so they are harder to keep hot as opposed to cast iron grills, which can reach and maintain incredibly high temperatures.

Everything You Should Think About Prior to Buying an RCS Stainless Steel Grill:
What Type of Installation Do You Need?
Built-in Grills

Interested in built-in grills? Here are a few things you should consider about them. Feel free to check out this great RCS stainless steel grill in the meantime. Constructed with an aesthetically-pleasing design, built-in grills are ideal for upgrading any patio setting, giving it a beautiful and refined look. These built-in grills have lots of prep space and are great for barbecuing large quantities of meat and vegetables at the same time. However, they have a less convenient installation process, so if you're looking for something that can just come out of the box and is ready for use, these might not be the best choice. Installed permanently into your outdoor kitchen, they can't be moved around unlike freestanding or portable grills. Moreover, built-in grills are considerably more expensive, so they should only be considered if you're looking to make an investment in an outdoor kitchen.

Freestanding Grills

Interested in freestanding grills? We can tell you a few things you should know about them. Feel free to check out this great RCS stainless steel grill in the meantime. Freestanding grills are especially great for first-time grillers since they don't demand the same long-term commitment that built-in grills do. They are easy to move around, giving you the freedom and flexibility to push them out of the way when you are done cooking. They typically include internal storage units to help keep all cooking accessories in one convenient place. Featuring a compact design, freestanding grills are a great option for small outdoor locations. One downside is that they don't have any prep space, unlike built-in grills, so if you're trying to build an entire cooking station, they're not the best choice.
