    SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT!!!!! I just got the darn thing put together and now the picture is perfectly clear!!!! The reason the barcode rang up as $279 was because this is the one WITHOUT the gas starter! It's the one WITH the gas starter that is $199. Now the question is, do I take this one back fully built and exchange it for the one with the gas starter or do I just use it the way it is? I got a dang good deal either way. Thoughts??? For those of you that have one, is the gas start a super huge advantage?

    WTF??? The George Foreman is a grill and it can be used inside so I figured I'd be ok!

    On the phone with them now to see if they have one with the gas starter. I really should get what I want, right?

    OK, this isn't getting any better! I call Home Depot and tell them what happened. They read off the clearance tag and it says performer with gas starter. However, the model # on the tag is equivalent to the performer without the gas start? WTF????? So, I'm going to call tomorrow afternoon to see if they'll swap me out. Since mine is already built, surely we can swap floor models, right? Either way I'm getting a good deal, just figured if I can get the gas start that I'll be better off!

    Get what you want. The gas start has to be a handy feature and I'd see what I could do to get it if I wanted it. Let us know how it all goes for ya.

    Will do! I called them and the only one they have left with the gas ignition is the floor model. The lady I talked to said I could switch it out with the one I built. I will make sure tomorrow before I head that way! Either way I won't be overly upset. If I can get the gas start, I WILL!

    I see, the reason it was so cheap was because it was a black one. Everybody wants the red one and the blue one.


















    Not really.

    I'd get the gas one and make them assemble it.

    Geez Tim, I dunno! It's a cluster fk for sure. I'm going to try to get the gas light out of it tomorrow. If not, I still got a damn good deal!
