Although Camp Chef’s Flat Top Grill 475 is the smallest model in their Flat Top line, it’s big enough to crank out breakfast, lunch and dinner for the whole family. Camp Chef offers three Flat Tops with model numbers that describe the size of the griddle cook surface. Flat Top 475 is a 3-burner with a 475 square inch griddle, Flat Top 600 is a 4-burner with 600 square inches and Flat Top 900 is a 6-burner with 900 square inches. We reviewed the Flat Top 600 Grill which is the only model that features grill grates under the griddle for easy conversion to a 4-burner gas grill.
Camp Chef warrants stove components to be free from defect in materials and workmanship for one year from the date of purchase. Paint and finish is not warranted.
