I love my Weber grill… I hugged it when Amazon delivered it onto my back porch. After three hours and a trip to Home Depot later I grilled my first hamburger the same night and all was good.
Weber grills are synonomous with quality and good even cooking. For the price (especially when Amazon reduces the current years models around Labor Day), I feel you get a really good deal. This same grill is almost $200 more at Home Depot!
Why is the Weber grill a Gizmo of the Day? Because of what Weber has done for gas cooking. Gone are the days where you have “hot spots” on your grill thanks to stainless steel bar burners that extend from one side to another side of the grill evenly distributing heat and flames. Also, no lava rocks are required and Weber’s bars are angled to move the drippings into a drip pan so you don’t get the flare ups. There’s some technology in these grills and I love mine.
When Weber launched the Genesis gas grill line back in 1985, we launched more than a new line of grills- we launched a grilling revolution. The Genesis line changed the way gas grills work with a new and innovative cooking system that stopped flare-ups and created even heat without messy lava rocks. Our system was so good, it wasn’t long before other brands tried to replicate it. Close, but no cigar. Weber’s cooking system is still the best on the market, and here’s why: Burneres made of high-grade stainless steel run the length of the cookbox, providing even heat accross the grill. Flavorizer bars completely cover the burners, no holes or cutouts. They are precisely angled to generate heat and facilitate run off of juices that aren’t vaporized. –A drip system for directing grease away from the burners. Drippings are channeled into a funnel shaped bottom tray under the burners and collect in a large drip pan. Both the funnel-shaped tray and the drip pan are easy to remove from the front of the grill. –At least two or more individually controlled burners for cooking direct or indirect. Burners have infinite control valves so you can fine tune the temperature. Genesis Gold gas grills include two model types–B and C. Gold B models have three burners, and Gold C models have three burners and a 12,000 BTU-per-hour input side burner. Both models feature a fully enclosed cart with stainless steel doors and handles, stainless steel cooking grates, stainless steel flavorizer bars, granite-style thermoset work surfaces, Crossover ignition system, solid robot-welded carts, built in thermometer, and a double-walled construction stainless steel hood that adds a layer of insulation to trap heat and protect the stainless steel hood from discoloring. All natural gas models include a 12 ft. flexible hose. All models also feature a limited lifetime warranty.
