    The Prestige PRO Series offers 3 models, each available in Natural Gas or Propane:

    Napoleon 67" Prestige PRO 500 Freestanding Gas Grill with Infrared Rear Burner and Infrared Side Burners

    Napoleon 94" Prestige PRO 825 Freestanding Gas Grill with Infrared Rear Burner, Double Infrared Sear Burner & Side Burner
    Now let us elaborate the different features of the two series.

    When it comes to the parts of the freestanding grill, the Prestige Series' right side is retractable. You are able to retract and pull it back when you're within a tight space. The Prestige PRO, on the other hand, is not retractable because its side of the grill is more heavy-duty and versatile than that of the Prestige Series. You get a cutting board and an ice chest in that non-retractable side of the PRO.

    The cooking grids directly affects the cooking process when using grills. The Prestige PRO has thicker grids compared to Prestige series. These gives you a better sear marks on the meat you're cooking. In addition, the infrared side burner of the two series also differs. Prestige series' standard is cast iron; Prestige PRO's standard is stainless steel.


    Aesthetically, the Prestige Series offers porcelain colored finishes. The main color, of course, is stainless steel, and then there's black and charcoal gray finishes. The Prestige PRO, however only offers the stainless steel finish. The knobs of the Prestige Series and Prestige PRO both lights up and run on battery. The difference is that the color of the Prestige series' light is blue only, and it has no internal lights. The Prestige PRO, however, offers multi-color and has interior lighting. The light of both series' knobs turn red as a safety feature when the grills are on. What's cool about the Prestige PRO is its motion sensor floor lighting. If ever you do a lot of evening cooking outside, for example, the motion sensor is going to turn your lighting on as you approach near your grill. Fifteen seconds after, the floor lighting will shut off. Well, that's quite an interesting feature of the Prestige PRO series! 


    The doors of these grills has such difference too. The Prestige PRO has heavy duty, yet, soft closing doors. Inside these cabinets are additional features as well such as under cabinet lighting and a pull-out extra storage.


    If you're looking for a grill that's gonna do a great job in cooking your food, and whose features are valuable and great, you can not go wrong with choosing between these two series of Napoleon's Gas Grills Prestige Series and Prestige PRO Series.
