Comment:
My previous Weber Silver B of 15 years finally started to rust badly. After (3) replacement of burners and grates it was time to say goodbye to an old friend. I looked at all the alternatives. Looked nice, good reviews etc. I decided that all the others I would replace within 5 years or less. Friends who have other grills not Weber look like they have been through the war. I really tried to convince myself that the other alternatives were viable. But in the end I knew I could not fool myself that the Weber was actually the cheaper alternative in the long run. So I bite the bullet and am not disappointed. This grill simply does it right, no bells or whistles, cooks exactly like you would expect. Cooks very evenly, performs perfectly. If it lasts like my Silver B I will be very happy. Got is delievered and assembled for free, so the replacement was cooking that evening for dinner. So far it is as advertised.

I bought this grill 4 years ago. It's suppose to be ALL stainless steel. Last week the rear wheel fell off. It's inserted into a square tube. The entire tube broke apart from rust. The entire side panel is rusting and breaking apart, along with another tube for a wheel. These items were not properly prepared for rust proofing, never mind it was advertised as ALL stainless steel grill. I'm even on the second cover, also Weber brand and double the price. Called customer service and they just said the parts are no longer available. Never mind any warranty. NOT worth the money!!! Buy one of those $250 grills and dispose of it in 4 years, same thing! Will never buy a Weber again.

Comment:
The available natural gas model has made this a FUN BBQ grill. The long line of Weber options has us experimenting more with the grill's potentials. Not only are there stainless steel vegetable cooking baskets, but a heavy two sided porcelain-enameled cast-iron griddle and smoke box. The smoke box fits conveniently between the burners and grill bar surface. After using a cheaper, yet CR recommended, grill for many years, the even temperatures of this unit is a welcomed plus in preparing food. Costing almost four times the amount of our first natural gas grill, it is worth the expense for convenience in design and cooking results. The new searing heat bar has been a welcomed addition. Enjoy preparing beef or lamb with an American Norton grape wine in hand.
