Electric is nice. I like the idea of having the same fuel for power and cooking, a bottle of propane. Clean is also a factor. I did some research and found that Lehr has upgraded a lot of the plastic parts that were causing problems with earlier models. No smell, no mixing gas and oil and portability of fuel. The O grill is neat, portable and small, but can get the job done. It's the most popular grill in the apre hockey parking lot weekly cookouts with my friends. As Forrest Gump would say, "one less thing."
