Grilling season is finally upon us, but is your outdoor kitchen ready? If your setup needs an upgrade or if you want to get a more versatile grill this summer, now is the time to invest in a quality flat-top grill. Luckily, Blackstone’s 36-inch griddle is $126 off right now in Amazon’s Memorial Day sale.

While it’s not the best price we’ve ever seen on the grill, it’s not likely to last. We’ve already seen it sell out once earlier this month.

But honestly, even at full retail price, we dubbed the Blackstone 36-Inch Flat-Top Gas Griddle our “Upgrade Pick” when we tested flat-top grills—namely for its quality restaurant-level build and superior cooking abilities. “It was easier to season, reached higher temperatures, and cooked more evenly than any griddle we tested,” our tester and grill master Tony Carrick wrote.

This grill has a lot to offer: four zones heated by an equal number of 15,000 BTU stainless steel burners, a large 720-square-inch cooking surface, and prep tables on each side. Our tester found that it easily reached temperatures above 600 degrees Fahrenheit, and proved particularly successful in achieving a good sear and crust on burgers and steak. Meanwhile, the four heat zones enabled space to spread out (you can fit up to 16 steaks and 72 hot dogs) and multitask. “Setting up the grill to hit scorching hot temps for meat on one side and low temps for toasting buns on the other was a breeze,” he noted. When all is done, the grease drain hole conveniently positioned in the middle of the griddle allows for easy cleaning and scraping off of burnt-on bits.

Did we mention its size? Measuring over 5 feet long, this is no small grill. The sturdy wheels should help it move around your backyard, though, so it doesn’t need to take up prime real estate when not in use.

What are you waiting for? Head to Amazon to snag this grill for 28 percent off while it lasts!
