We have always had inexpensive, used grills in the past that did not last and were prone to flareups. Several friends enthusiastically recommended Weber gas grills. Though they were double the price we were hoping to spend we figured if it lasts twice as long a d performs better during that time it would be worth it.
After a month and a half of use we are very impressed with:
Quality construction- more welded joints than cheaper grills. The lid is heavy indicating better insulation of the cooking box.
Quickness in preheating- 5 minutes and it's at 650 F
Lack of flareups
Love the sear burner and side burner.
Most importantly food tastes great!!! Burgers, BBQ ribs, chicken, shrimp.... It all has cooked beautifully.
We will update in a couple of years on the durability of it.
Hope this helps other grill shoppers!
