Looking for suggestions for a small, easy to use, easy to clean gas grill. Preferably with a non stick grate.

This could be a tall order.

Used to have the Olympia Grill from Camper's World and other places. Good grill but, not non-stick. Had flare ups too.

Went w/the Weber grill at CW and have had great luck. Non-stick, easily cleaned and compact. The removeable grease catcher is a nice feature too. We are happy. They sell all sorts of accessories for it, foldable cart etc.

I don't remember the model # but I think it was around $130 - $150. Haven't really heard anybody complain about it.

My one complaint about the Weber is ....don't they use the skinnier propane bottles?

Yes, there is a bracket on the side but, I just moved it over and put a "fat" bottle on. No problem. I don't think the bracket is necessary, especially for the shorter bottle.

Now I have a line off of my coach propane and hook it up directly.

That sounds like the Weber Q100 grill. I'm going to check them out, and the bottle mount.

I have the Weber Baby Q and love it. I hook it to a standard tank (20#?? I think) and have a couple of the small tanks for back up if I run out.

I'm pretty sure that's it. There was one larger model but, didn't think it was necessary for even our family of 4.

Weber uses the skinnier blue 14 oz Burnzomatic propane bottles that can be found at most any hardware store in the plumbing section.

I have the Aussie Model 2200 and am extremly happy with it. If you want something smaller the Adventurer 2430 looks very nice also.

Yee Gads! I would complain about the price! But then I'm "Frugal" (not cheap! )

We use a $20 Sunbeam we pick up every 12 -18 months from Wal-Mart. We use a grill so much that we burn up the burner. Even the full size home grills. I got tired of overhauling our big grill yearly (and we kept getting the best burner we could). Finally bought a cast brass burner... used it for 1 year and we started full-timing and one of my kids is using the grill. It's cheaper to buy new cheapie than replace parts. It works for us. I hook it up to a #20 BBQ tank with an extendsion hose. Waaay cheaper than buying all those little bottles. But like I said... It works for us.

Another vote for the Weber Q 100 (formerly the Baby Q). Cast iron grate, I have a quick connect on my main propane tank with a 12' hose so I don't have to worry about the little bottles.

We use the 20# gas tank adaptor on our Baby Q when in camp and the little blue bottles when hauling it to parties at the park or at the beach.
