Patio II
How to tell the difference between The Patio II, Sterling II, and Sterling III?
These three grills are very much alike and take most of the same parts. These three models will have the igniter in between two burner control knobs and the pilot knob off to the right. These grills also have white (or off-white) ceramic plates below the cooking grates/grids. The Patio II should have 'Patio II' or 'Patio' on the hood. The Sterling II and III should have 'Sterling' on the Hood.  The Sterling III has three burners, and, therefore, has three burner control knobs. If the Logo is missing you must find the Serial Number or Model Number. Because these three grills are so much alike and take the same parts, you may not need to distinguish one from the other.
