First, the worst thing: these are a PITA to install. The ceramic plaque fit is like the original, which is to say pretty snug. There's are a set of four seals that are supposed to go around the edges to keep the gas from bypassing the plaque. These are strips of something that looks like fiberglass and are extremely fragile. It's quite a trick (or was for me) to get these in place around the edges of the plaque without tearing them up. I wound up using a strip of heavy paper to sort of funnel them into place, then gently slid the paper out leaving the seal in its slot. I still had to use a thin piece of wood (aka popsicle stick) to press them in so they fit flush. That said, I expect that T.E.C. never intended the plaque itself to be replaced; in the past you had to buy the whole burner assembly for something like $350 so to save about $200 I'll live with the finicky install of the plaque.
The good news is that, although the plaque surface looks a little different and the flame is a little cooler than the original - the color is definitely a little redder than the yellow-orange TEC unit next to it - it cooks just the same.
Overall, to save a lot of bucks I recommend this, but be ready for a finicky install.

Cured my grill from flaming out. If you have a crack in your burner, this will fix it. The part came with all the gaskets, and I only had to remove two screws to take the old one out and install the new one. My only complaint is the frame around the burner ceramic is does not join neatly.
