Product Description

Product Description

Forget charcoal lighter fluid. No more electric starters. The Performer charcoal grill uses gas to light coals fast so you get charcoal flavor with the convenience of a gas grill. There's plenty of cook space with a 22-1/2-inch porcelain-enameled bowl and lid. Other features include: a factory-assembled stainless steel One-Touch cleaning system with a removable black aluminum ash catcher; a heavy-duty, plated, hinged cooking grate that makes it easy to add briquets; Charbin storage container that keeps up to 20 pounds of charcoal dry; Touch-N-Go gas ignition system; dual-purpose thermometer built into the lid; Tuck-Away lid holder; and locking casters and crackproof all-weather wheels.

Many outdoor chefs swear by charcoal for the smoky, old-school flavor it lends to meat--but no one likes the mess or the hassle of starting the coals, or the chemical aftertaste that lighter fluid can leave. The Performer’s Touch-n-Go ignition system uses liquid propane to light charcoal briquets with just the touch of a button. Once the coals are white-hot, you’re ready to cook. Even cleaning up afterwards won’t get your hands dirty, thanks to Weber’s patented One-Touch cleaning system--a simple sweep of a lever pushes ashes into a removable catch pan for quick and easy disposal.

The Performer’s exceptionally-durable construction includes a rust-resistant, porcelain-enameled steel bowl and lid. Heavy-duty, hinged grates made from plated steel offer easy access to the classic kettle-shaped bowl when it’s time to add briquets to the fire. A dual-purpose thermometer allows cooks to monitor the temperature inside the grill, then removes to test meat for doneness. A Tuck-Away holder holds the lid conveniently out of the way plus provides a windscreen for lighting. Rugged, weather-resistant wheels are crack-proof in the most extreme temperatures and allow easy transport, while locking casters prevent the grill from rolling while you cook. Rust-free aluminum vents adjust to provide perfect airflow in changing conditions. An integrated storage container keeps up to 20 pounds of charcoal dry and within reach, and the granite-look Thermoset work surface provides a handy place to store marinades and sauces while you cook.

Also included are welded steel charcoal fuel holders that facilitate cooking with direct or indirect heat as well as a five-pound liquid propane tank. The assembled unit measures 40 by 50-1/4 by 28-1/2 inches, with a 22-1/2 inch cooking surface. Bowl, handles, lid, and One-Touch cleaning system are covered by a 10-year warranty; cooking grate and charcoal baskets have a 1-year warranty; and the burner assembly, hose, test valve, and regulator have a 3-year guarantee. Weber grills are made in the USA. --Mary Park

I have used a Weber One Touch Gold for many years, but the truth of the matter is that in Northern Michigan winter, it is frequently more than I care to attempt to try to get the fire going. Nomatter whether I use the chimney or parrafin starters, that cold wind does not get me enthused to charcoal grill in January.

So my sons gave me a Performer as a surprise gift (Bless those lads!!)! And, like most Weber products, it's a winner.

ASSEMBLY: It took less than twenty minutes for my older son and I to assemble it. The directions are crystal clear, the parts are well and carefully packed, and the only item not included is the small propane container, which is readily available at hardware stores. (Our local Home Depot had four packs for just under $10.00.)

QUALITY: This is a solidly built unit. The kettle bolts to the frame with four large bolts, and the adjoining work surface is similarly attached. While some have complained that it is not as good as its predecessor, I can vouch for the overall quality of design and construction.

PERFORMANCE: With the gift came a demand for "RIBS!!" There were enough people here to warrant a comparison test with my old One Touch Gold. The Performer had a fire ready to go about 8 minutes before the One Touch was ready, and the fire was hotter by over 50 degrees as measured on the thermometers in the handles. (I believe that the air vents at the bottom are larger in the Performer, which would account for this.)

The work surface adjacent to the kettle is worth the additional cost of this unit over the One Touch. No longer is there a need to balance a tray of goodies on the rim of the kettle with one hand, while trying to place food items on the grill with the other.

I purchased my New Performer in February of 2005. I love my grill !
I use this grill at least 3 times a week and really have nothing but praise for it.

Here's why.

Plain and simple... if you want a grill that gives you the great positives of charcoal cooking flavor over gas, and a grill that gives you the primary convenience that gas has of quick ignition and readiness to cook, look no further.

No more need for starter fluid burn off or its residual taste in your foods. No more labors of love to get a fire started in a starter chimney. This unit seemingly was designed for people that want the best of both worlds and Weber actually makes a supreme effort to let you realize that dream.

Trust me... there is nothing "cheap" about the quality of its plastic work surface. I have used and abused my grill for better than 8 months now and it may be in need of a good cleaning, but it shows no sign of deterioration. It is quite sturdy. Before I purchased my Performer, I located the year earlier model and had an opportunity to buy it locally. But I chose not to. One main reason is that the newer design for 2005 is far friendlier in regards gaining access to coals in the storage bin.

Speaking of the coal storage bin, I have had many bags of coal stored in the compartment and the coals suffer none for being there. The grill has been left in the rain several times and yet the storage bin opening is far enough under the top to protect the coals from any rain. When I come out to cook, my coals are dry and ready for me, just like I left them. It also looks great to me because I do not see it while cooking and when I need to get coals, it is easy to just reach under and tilt it forward to access my coal bag.

I have been using my Weber performer for six months and absolutely love it.

My old Weber charcoal grill was from the late 70's and required the ash to be scooped out by hand which was very messy. Also, recycling the un-burnt charcoal from the previous nights grilling required each piece of charcoal be picked up and dumped back into a chimney (I don't use starter fluid).

So, I started looking for a better solution. Gas grills are cleaner and faster but don't provide the taste that I have become accustomed with charcoal. My initial reaction to the Performer was that it was too expensive for a charcoal grill. Now I think it is worth every penny.

What the performer offers over the lower priced Weber charcoal models:

* A push button gas ignition system that will have the charcoals ready to cook in about 15-20 minutes and is much less hassle and mess than a chimney

* A charcoal storage bin that will hold one 20 lb bag

* A dual purpose temperature gauge built into the handle to monitor the grill temperature and when inserted into meat, can determine when it's cooked

* A Thermoset table top which is easy to keep clean and provides an adequate work surface

* A hinged grill making it easy to add charcoal or wood during barbequing. I have never needed to add more charcoal but I do add wood chips for smoking

* A convenient bowl holder bolted onto the side of the barbeque instead of the less convenient hook mounted underneath the bowl on the other Weber charcoal grills.

* An enclosed ash catcher under the grill which is easy to change and doesn't dump ashes like the open ash catcher on the One-Touch Silver charcoal grill.
