Product Description

This new take on the classic Weber Performer grill has a space-saving design and exceptional maneuverability. A sturdy painted metal table is right at hand while grilling, but folds down for convenient storage or when not in use. The Tuck-Away lid holder allows you to simply move the lid to the side to check on your meal or add charcoal. Other convenience features include an aluminized steel One-Touch cleaning system and enclosed high-capacity ash catcher. Together these make dealing with ashes and cleanup as hassle-free as possible.

I love this grill. I had the regular Weber silver grill, and it got stolen when I was moving. Seriously, who steals a 5 year old used f'ing grill? I guess if it's a Weber, all bets are off. whatever.

So I had to buy a new grill. My two biggest complaints from my old grill - I hated having to put the lid on the ground whenever I needed to open it, and I hated not having a tray next to the grill for putting stuff on and pulling it off.

Well, what are the two biggest changes with the Performer? A tray and a lid holder. Holy Christ, my prayers have been answered.

I highly recommend spending the extra $$ over the regular one for this, it fixes the two things that'll drive you insane with the regular one. Sanity gets super expensive as you get older, so you might as well save some now.

The only negative is that I eat more burgers and steak now. So my pants don't fit very well anymore. Hmmm..

I love grilling - both charcoal and gas. I used to have a Weber kettle, but wasn't overly thrilled with the 3 leg stand. I didn't want the bigger Performer either - the table was just too big since I have a gas grill on my deck already. This was the perfect solution. The build quality is near perfect. I love the design and quality workmanship. I will note, however, that there was a problem with it. A screw to hold the handle to the lid was missing and one of the nuts inside the leg that holds the kettle in place popped out. I was and am disappointed in that. I called Weber and they said they would take care of everything. That was about a week ago and I am starting to get concerned. I will stay on them though. Other than that, the product is fantastic. Update: the lady I spoke with at Weber was very nice, but she must have been new.I called back a week later after I didn't get a promised confirmation email and she didn't enter the work order correctly. At great expense to Weber, they overnighted all the parts I needed and then some. Now, I just need to get rid of the snow! This grill is nice.

This grill does not disappoint. This is classic Weber quality from design to execution. The assembly takes a person about an hour doing it easy and slow, while I could imagine someone doing it faster, I do not recommend it. All the parts fit so well, I must say it is a pleasure - almost feels like play instead of work. This version of the Performer series has the side table in steel, which is why I got it instead of the Gold & Platinum series, which has a hard resin or plastic table. The essentials are clearly all there, including an ash tray, side table, hooks for utensil, and a grate that folds on the sides for easy access to charcoal when doing indirect cooking. The assembled product is so cute yet exudes durability. We shopped around for both this and the German designed Rosle, but decided on Weber and we are very happy - these are made in USA.

I am very happy with this grill. The packaging was wonderful. It was actually so tightly held in place by extremely sturdy cardboard that it was difficult to get out of the box. We did have one piece that was bent, and it took awhile to figure out that we needed to straighten it out before going forward with assembly. I still can't figure out how it got bent in this package!
For the most part assembly was easy. And, I am a 74-year-old very arthritic woman married to an 84-year-old man with cognitive issues. if we could do it, anyone can! The only part that gave us a problem was putting on the table, and that nearly did us in. It definitely requires getting on your hands and knees, something I can no longer do. It was the only part I needed help from my husband to complete.
Once assembled, we had a heck of a time getting the ash container on. At first we just couldn't do it. Customer Service was very sweet but not at all helpful. Several neighbors were humiliated by their inability to do it for us. Finally I had a PhD friend who was also stymied, but being a very practical person, she turned the grill on its side. When she did that, I realized that in moving it outside, the support for the lid holder had moved to one side. This caused the ring for the ash container to be off true, and it would not fit. When I returned the brace to the center where it belongs, the can fit perfectly.
However, we still find it nearly impossible to put on after taking it off for emptying. Perhaps with time it will loosen or we will figure out the moves better, for for now we still must turn the bbq on its side to get the darned thing back on. This is the reason I docked it to 4 stars. Something that must be done often shouldn't be so darned hard!

We saw this model at the Sunset Gardens celebration in Menlo Park about a month ago. The Weber rep with whom we spoke was unhesitatingly knowledgeable about their product line and could (and did) discuss the things that have changed since we got our first kettle (around 27 years ago) and today.

Good changes:

- The packing group for the requires-assembly bits and pieces was a work of genius. Easy to open, nothing spills out, nothing catches on anything else... kudos to Weber's Kings of Kardboard.
- replace the old tripod wheels & stick with a set of wheels and casters.
- put a folding table surface (brilliant!) on the thing so basting isn't a balancing act and it folds down so the storage area required is substantially the same as the existing kettle (not true for the others in the performer line, but the table bits in those can bear more weight)
- got rid of the old, disk-like ash-catcher that (for us) attracted the dog and raccoons to lick any drippings there. The new ash-catcher is deep and sealed from probing critters.
- instead of a tack welded (?) hook on the lid to hold it (always slightly tricky), there's a lid-catcher with what look like Delrin® free-turning bolsters that will not scratch the lid.
- the airflow/ash cleaner thingie no longer uses a wingnut mount for the lever, it looks swaged in place with two metal loops.
- there's a temperature gauge in the lid!
- It's a premium product (here because it's good and bad)

Downsides:

- they dropped the little charcoal dams that you put in the coal bed surface... good news is the ones from the old Weber kettle work fine. These are great to have if you're doing a Thanksgiving turkey in the center and want side heat.
