Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's
our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on gas grill
models like the Summit S-620.
Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.
All or mostly stainless:
Includes more than just a panel or other trim. Based on our limited tests, nonmagnetic stainless is less likely to corrode.
While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.
The Ratings of Weber Summit S-650 were applied to untested model Weber Summit S-620, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.
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.

Stainless-steel grates Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.
Coated-cast-iron grates The grill's primary cooking grates may be made of porcelain coated cast-iron, which generally sears meats better and keeps grilling temperatures more consistent than grates made of porcelain coated steel. The porcelain coating usually makes such grates easier to clean than other surfaces, and the grates should resist rust as long as their porcelain coating isn't chipped.
All or mostly stainless Includes more than just a panel or other trim. Based on our limited tests, nonmagnetic stainless is less likely to corrode.
All or mostly stainless
Long-warranty burners While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.
Side burner A side burner, which resembles a gas-stove burner and has its own heat control, is handy if you want to cook vegetables or sauce without leaving the grill. A side burner could also be an infrared burner used for searing.
Infrared burner Gas burner that uses infrared technology (ceramic burner, plates and screens, or troughs as some examples) for cooking. An indirect flame is used for cooking food. Burner can be located as the main burner, side burner, rotisserie burner, or any combination of burners.
This is a great grill. Plenty of BTUs for high heat searing. Fine enough heat or flame control for delicate meats (like fish)and vegetables. Direct and indirect grilling are stellar. (Mostly) stainless steel construction is durable and easy to clean.<br /><br />Minor gripe: I don't like the design of the grease trap. It's thinner, stamped metal construction with poorly finished edges (can cut a finger if not careful), and it occupies a lot of cabinet space.<br /><br />Finally, this is an expensive grill. You do get what you pay for--excellent construction, great customer support, and fantastic grilling control, but the grill is easily 2-3 times more expensive than even some of the most expensive grills at your local big box stores.

Weber Summit S620 Grill
cooks quickly, evenly and reliably
uses a lot of propane when you are only cooking a small portion of food
This barbecue has exceeded my expectations. I have been a long time user of the Weber BBQ, however this large cooking area is a wonderful to have. It cooks in half the time of my older BBQ and cooks evenly with no hot spots. Even though it is pricey, it is well worth the money if you require the large cooking area.
