Ease Of Use

Traeger Ironwood Series 885 Pellet Grill
Superior Packaging, Design and Assembly Instructions. Good Easy-To-Use Smoker. Not So Good Grill.
My wife and I bought ourselves the Traeger Ironwood 885 for a Christmas present. We will not use it until after Christmas but we have assembled it. The packaging was the best ever for such a product. Easy to unbox, logically laid out and very protective. No damage whatsoever even though there were d...

Terrible Customer Service
Already had a smoker, bought this for the ease of use. Couldn’t get the app to work with the grill due to a glitch in the app. The app is what makes the monitoring so easy.

Temperature Control

Traeger Ironwood Series 885 Pellet Grill
Ahhhh Not what I expected
Bought grill, less than a month paint peeling on inside and the thermocouple (temp regulator) split. Issues after issue. Traeger support had to call 4 times in over three weeks to get a response.

Traeger Pro 575 Pellet Grill
Not durable.
Had my grill for just 5 months now, it will no longer allow me to set the temperature, it just shuts off as soon as you hit ignite. Called customer support and was told it's the hot rod, they are sending a replacement but I have to attempt to replace it myself. A $800 grill should last much more tha...
