About This Brand

This brand, known for its durability and dependability, went through an entire line and design change in 2007. Weber is known for its quality products in the midpriced to high-priced categories, and grills that feature coated cast-iron and stainless-steel-rod cooking grates and long-warranty stainless-steel burners. (The company offers a natural-gas version for most of its grills.) Weber recently introduced an infrared-searing station on some of its grills, updated its Q line of portable grills, and added colors to its entire lineup. Weber grills are available at many retailers nationwide. Grills range in price from $130 to $3,000. Note that Weber acquired Ducane about four years ago.

Comment:
I have used the grill almost daily. Everything from breakfast through dinner works fine. Fish stays flaky, a steak is seared like in a high end steak house.<br />The rotisserie cooked a chicken to perfection. No problems balancing the bird like previous grills.<br />I am working on my recipe for bread. Baking on a stone in this grill gives a nice crust that can not be found in stores. Reminds me of New York bakery bread.<br />I have owned Weber products for the last 20 years and would not change brands.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have owned this grill for nearly four years. It hasn't given me a bit of trouble. I generally use it for my primary cooking device from early Spring until late Fall. It handles everything well from vegetables and fish to chops and steaks. I have only used the rotisserie a few times but had great results. The separate wood burner is a nice addition but I wish it had been designed more towards the center of the grill so that the cavity is filled with smoke rather than escaping out of the side vents.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I Love to grill, and my family loves it that I do! I have been grilling for over 25 years and if you are going to go with a gas grill, this one is basically unbeatable. I also own a large smoker which doubles as my charcoal unit. But for fast, easy, convenient grilling, this is top of the line. Being able to sear your steaks makes this unit worth the extra cost. Do not hesitate to shop around online. I was able to find this unit in January for [$] plus shipping.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
