If you can’t wait for summer and want to begin your hunt for the best grills now, Napoleon Gas Grills, specifically the Lex605, should be on your list. If you’re looking to build an outdoor kitchen and are looking for the best built-in grills, then that’s even more reason why the LEX605 Should be on your list.

Why We Like It – Napoleon Gas Grills

Napoleon gas grills are leaders in their class, and the LEX605 is no different. Boasting powerful cooking power and a large cooking area it can handle your outdoor kitchen needs without hassle. And at 120 pounds it’s relatively light for a built-in grill too.

  • Comes with a Rear Burner
  • Reliable Ignition System
  • Comes with Many Great Attachments
  • Not All Stainless Steel Throughout


LEX605 Napoleon grills come equipped with three stainless steel tube burners and one infrared searing burner that provide a total cooking power of 64,000 BTUs. It’s up there among the most powerful, just like the Napoleon Prestige 500. But if you do want something with more juice, check out the Blaze Grill. The Napoleon also comes with a 15,500 BTU ceramic rear infrared burner!

The LEX605 comes with 605 square inches of main cooking space and a 245 square inch warming rack for a combined total of 805 square inches of cooking space. It should be more than enough to feed a hungry family and a few close friends from the neighborhood. You can also check out this unit’s cousin, the Napoleon Burners Prestige PRO 665 natural gas grill, for even more cooking space.


Although the grill is constructed well, not all components are made from stainless steel which is something customers seem to be wanting more and more. You will find cast aluminum and porcelain enameled steel components on the cart legs and back panels, for example. Still, it’s built solid and there shouldn’t really be any problems. But you can check out the Bull Grill if you’re interested in all stainless steel construction.

Ease of Use

One of the best things about the Lex605 is the Jetfire Ignition System which safely, consistently, and reliably starts the grill. The grill also comes with a wide variety of accessories to enhance your grilling experience. These accessories include a charcoal tray if you enjoy the taste, a smoker tube you can fill with wood chips to layer the flavor, and a rotisserie kit!


The LEX605 is a great value barbecue because it comes with a strong warranty. It has a lifetime warranty on the exterior housing and cooking grids and a 10-year warranty on the burners and flame tamers. After that warranty expires you’ll be treated to an additional five years of warranty where you can buy replacement burners and flame tamers at 50% of the cost.

Napoleon Gas Grills Wrap Up

Built tough and backed by a class-leading warranty, there’s no reason, besides wanting an all stainless steel-constructed grill, why the LEX605 should be glossed over. It comes with a great number of accessories to add to your grilling experience, and its powerful ignition system works every time.
