Ducane Grill Ignitors
Ducane offers two series of gas grills: the Affinity Series 3100 and 4100. Both series feature an electronic
ignition. The 3100 series offers three burners, and the 4100 series offers two burners. Both feature
porcelain-enameled cooking grates.
There's limited information about Ducane's company history. It was in operation for 30 years before being
acquired by Weber-Stephen Products Co. in 2004. The Illinois-based Weber-Stephen Products Co. now manufactures
and distributes Ducane grills.
Special Features Of Ducane Grill Ignitors
Ducane Grill ignitors are push-button ignitors that operate on two sparks. The 3100 series features an enclosed
cart with painted, stainless steel front doors. The lid is porcelain enamel and has a stainless steel handle. The
cooking grates, warming rack, and heat distribution plates are also porcelain enamel. These grills feature two
fixed casters and two swivel locking casters. The 4100 series includes many of the same features from the 3100
series. The major difference between the two series is that the 4100 grills include one more burner, having four
instead of three burners.
Care should be taken when using Ducane Grills, because of the presence of natural or propane gas. The ignitors are
electric. All grills should be used outside, unless otherwise stipulated. When trouble-shooting a grill ignitor,
be careful to follow manufacturer instructions.
Customers have an overall positive experience with Ducane grills, but one of their pitfalls seem to be that each
burner must be lit individually.
Ducane offers various warranties on different parts of its grills. The burner, side table, cooking grates and
heating distribution plates all carry a two-year warranty. The grill's frame and lid both carry a five-year
warranty. To redeem the warranty, contact Ducane's customer service line with the grill's serial number.
