You ever try and google a recipe and have to sit there and scroll through a 10 page essay on the history of the authors grandma and the passage of her secret baked ziti recipe just to find out you don’t have an emulsifier (what even is that) and you can’t do it. So it’s on to the next essay just to try and find an ingredients list.
Well those days are behind you now. Just a picture of the food and a name saying “hey, does this look bomb to you? Here’s how you make it.” The app is extremely intuitive and user friendly. Hide what you don’t want to see, open what you do. Save recipes that you want to come back to later. I save my recipes and go to the store with nothing but the Traeger app. Just open up the recipes I want to make as I shop and look at the ingredients. Easy. I went from cooking almost nothing to doing ALL the cooking in my household. Every night before bed my wife prays and thanks Jesus for inventing the Traeger because now she doesn’t have to cook anymore. 10/10 would recommend.
Terrible wifire performance, worthless tech support, horrible customer service
The short version is this: this has truly been one of the worst customer experiences of my life. I was very excited to get my new Traeger 575. I specifically chose this model because of the wifire functionality. Unfortunately it has been INCREDIBLY disappointing. I been working for WEEKS to get it to connect to the app. I went through all of their online troubleshooting guides, factory resets, etc. Nothing. I called customer service only to wait on hold for over 2 hrs. The rep was very friendly and walked me through his troubleshooting process. Nothing. He told me he was going to escalate this to their IT team and I should expect a call in 3-5 business days. It’s been over 2 weeks. Nothing. I called back in and waited another 2 hrs, spoke to another friendly rep, repeated the same steps. Nothing. I called Ace hardware to initiate a return. Because I ordered it online from Ace it actually drop ships from Traeger. The Ace guy called the regional manager for Traeger and explained my situation. The Traeger guy told me that I can’t return it just because I don’t like it, and suggested I call tech support again. Don’t like it?! It doesn’t work!! This has truly been one of the most disappointing customer service experiences of my life. I’ve listed it for sale on Craigslist and will replace it with a Rec Tec.
Do not buy a Traeger!
I hope this review saves someone time and money. Buy a Green Mountain Grill, you get more for your money and the WiFi actually works!
I have a Pro 575 with “WiFire”. The grill by itself work fine, but the additional $$$ for the WiFire (which never works) is a complete waste. I believed Traeger’s advertising about the WiFire capabilities and was I miss led. The WiFire has been nothing but disappointments since the day I assembled the grill. Traeger customer care has not been helpful. I have over 30 emails back and forth trying to figure out the issues, they say “oh, you just need to update your app/grill”, “your signal strength is to low”, or “can you move the grill closer to your router?” The app/grill is up to date and the grill is less that 10’ from my router and is separated by a window! The customer care rep that I last spoke to on the phone didn’t even know what their app or grill menu looked like or the options for either of them!! How can you help someone with a product you don’t know anything about?
If you want to pay to much for a pellet grill buy a Traeger, if you want to pay even more for a WiFi pellet grill (that doesn’t work) buy a Traeger. But if you want to save money, get more, and have a WiFi grill that works, don’t buy a Traeger.
