Weber Summit S Series Gas Grills
Welcome to Top of the Line
These outstanding grills are the crown jewels of the Weber family. From exclusive features to the highest level of performance, these babies will make even seasoned grillers blush.
Weber's Original Gas Grilling System
Notice how sturdy the shroud feels as it opens smoothly on its hinges? See how the burners roar to life on the very first try? Delighted by how simple it is to achieve a mouthwatering meal every time? It's no accident. Weber spends countless hours perfecting the grilling systems on its gas grills, assuring easy assembly, an evenly heated cooking surface, and precision controls so you can tone things down or up to the perfect heat level for direct or indirect cooking.
Cookbox and Shroud
The cookbox houses the components of the cooking system: cooking grates, burner tubes, Favorizer Bars, and the grease management system.
Made of cast aluminum, Weber's gas-grill cookboxes are durable, efficient, require minimal care and maintenance, and can withstand the heat needed to grill at any temperature. In addition, the shape of the cookbox, when combined with the shroud, allows for the proper circulation of heat around food for even cooking whether you're using direct or indirect heat.
Weber gas-grill cooking grates come in three exceptional materials: porcelain-enameled steel, stainless steel, and porcelain-enameled cast-iron. Each type retains heat evenly and sears food beautifully. Porcelain-enameled steel cooking grates are durable and easy to clean. Stainless steel rod cooking grates make lovely sear marks, hold heat very well, and clean up with ease. Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates combine the ease of porcelain-enameled with the superior heat retention of cast-iron--no need to season and easy to clean.
Weber's burners are made of high-grade stainless steel, which will stand up to the small amounts of water found in liquid propane and natural gas. The burner tubes are made of a singular piece of steel with no welds, making them stronger and more resistant to rust and burn-through. And while they are protected from grease drippings and food by the Flavorizer bars, Weber cart gas grill burner tubes can be cleaned easily by gently brushing with a Weber stainless-steel grill brush.
Controls for each burner give you the ability to grill by the direct or indirect method. Even more, the burners are spaced to provide heat across the entire cooking grate, and the burner valves have infinite control settings, so you can fine-tune the heat levels.
The innovative Flavorizer bar system, originally created by Weber, is designed perfectly to perform a variety of functions on the Spirit , Summit, and Summit gas grills. Angled just right, the Flavorizer bars catch drippings that smoke and sizzle, adding flavor to your food. Any drippings not vaporized by the Flavorizer bars follow the slope of their unique angle and are funneled away from the burner tubes, down into the grease management system. Not only does this help prevent flare-ups inside your grill, but it also protects the burner tubes from becoming clogged.
Made of either porcelain enamel or stainless steel, Flavorizer bars are durable, long lasting, and easy to care for. Periodically brushing them clean with a Weber stainless-steel grill brush will help keep Flavorizer bars performing at their best.
When juices drip off the meat, they funnel down to the Flavorizer bars, and then what doesn't vaporize into wonderful smoke goes down into the grease management system. The grease management system consists of an angled grease tray and catch pan. The grease tray rests beneath the cookbox a safe distance from the burner tubes to prevent the grease from catching fire. Grease is channeled down the grease tray and into the catch pan. Both the grease tray and catch pan are easy to clean. The tray easily slides out of the cabinet for cleaning, and when the catch pan starts to fill, simply remove the disposable drip pan, toss it in the trash, and replace it with an empty pan.
A fuel gauge lets you know exactly where you stand on fuel at all times.
Sear Station Burner & Side Burner (Select Models)
Maximize the heat without minimizing grilling space. This high-powered sear burner is designed to step up the heat on demand for searing. Even more, a flush-mounted side burner lets you multi-task while grilling.
Summit S-470 Gas Grill
As part of the Summit S series, the S-470 gas grill has a front-mounted lighted control panel with four stainless-steel burners and a Snap-Jet individual burner ignition system. The unit provides stainless-steel cooking grates, stainless-steel Flavorizer bars, a 48,800 BTU-per-hour input, and 580 square inches of total cooking space, which consists of 468 square inches of primary cooking space and a 112-square-inch warming rack. For added versatility, the grill supplies a 12,000-BTU side burner, a 10,600-BTU Sear Station burner, a 6,800 smoker burner, and a 10,600 rear-mounted infrared rotisserie burner for the unit's Tuck-Away rotisserie system, which comes with a flip-up motor and separate spit and fork storage.
Other highlights include an enclosed cart, a stainless-steel shroud with a built-in thermometer, two stainless-steel work areas, a Grill Out light, six tool hooks, two heavy-duty front-locking casters, and two heavy-duty back swivel casters. Designed for use with natural gas or a 20-pound LP tank (sold separately), the gas grill measures 30 inches long by 66 inches wide by 57 inches high and carries a five-year limited warranty. A 10-foot flexible hose for natural-gas installation comes included.

I've had this Weber Summit S-470 grill for two days and cooked on it precisely once, so keep that in mind as you read this review. Also, keep in mind that I'm not a great cook. I'm just a guy who cooks burgers and fish a lot for a six person family. I didn't see a lot of info on this grill online before I bought it, so I made a video of the unboxing and assembly process on Youtube. Search for "Weber Summit S-470 Unboxing, Assembly, and Demo in 4k" to view it. I also demo the burners in the video. On with my review:
I'm pleased with the build quality in general. The firebox is thick cast material and the burner hats are thick gauge material too. The grates are nice and thick. I was surprised to find a boxed steel frame on the sides of the grill during installation. Very cool. I'm a fan of quality tools and ultimately a grill is a tool used for cooking.
While unnecessary, I totally dig the propane tank scale. I often wonder how much propane I have left, so this is a very welcome feature.
Most of the burners light on the first try, with the exception of the rotisserie burner (see below). At first I thought the ignition system was battery powered like my previous grill, but after using it for a while I think it may be a mechanical -> electrical ignition, which is nice because until that system wears out you'll never have to change batteries to start the grill. It does mean that the knobs have that unpleasant clank sound as you turn them to the ignition setting. It's a trade off. As long as they start the first time I think it's fine, but if a burner refuses to start the first time (see rotisserie info in the "less good" section below) it can quickly become tedious attempting to start the burner multiple times. They do include a match holder tool with the grill, which puzzled me at first, but perhaps this tool is for people that dislike the mechanical -> electrical starters.
The grill light is a very welcome feature and works great. However, I do have some concerns (see below).
The one time I've grilled burgers so far the heat seemed very even and they cooked quickly, so that's awesome. Cleanup was easy and quick. I just scraped the top grates with a wire brush.
Gotta say, I dig the knobs on the side tables for hanging my grilling tools. I always hated resting my spatula on the stainless steel of my previous grill between flipping burgers. Much better to hang it. Looks cool too.
EDIT April 16th 2018: The rotisserie feature is great! Our six person family loves the flavor this feature delivers.
The Less Good:
The rotisserie seems like the weakest feature from a user experience perspective. The pop up motor housing moves a lot as it is made of thin gauge sheet metal. I had a lot of trouble inserting and removing the rotisserie rod the first time. I often had to jiggle or raise the motor with one hand to get the rod to line up. I'm also concerned about friction while rotating as there is no bearing, just metal on metal. The rotisserie burner is an absolute pain in the butt to light. Often the igniter fails to spark and even if it does, often the burner fails to light.
EDIT April 16th 2018: We've had the grill for about a week and used the rotisserie feature twice. Once for large cut of pork and once for a whole chicken. I hate to admit it, but the rotisserie may be our favorite feature of this grill. Once you understand how it works it really isn't painful to set up. My partner had no trouble lighting the burner herself after I explained the process once. Later, when I cooked the chicken, it did take three or four tries to light the burner, which wasn't great, but wasn't terrible either. The results are fantastic: juicy, flavorful meat.
The knob LEDs are just silly. The grill light already illuminates the knobs and seriously how often do you forget which knob does what? They're right in front of the burner they control. It's not rocket science. The battery compartment for the knob LEDs could really use some instructions as to battery direction. I installed mine upside down the first time and had to call Weber support to figure out what the problem was. Apparently the tank scale light is on a completely different electrical circuit from the knob LEDs, so it's possible to have that working while the batteries are upside down. I suspected this feature would be silly before I bought the grill, so no big deal. I guess a lot of people like shiny objects so it appeals to that psychology.
The grill light, while an awesome feature, has a minor weakness: The batteries are going to be a more annoying than strictly necessary to replace. It's only one screw, but I'd prefer a screwless battery compartment. No clue yet how long the AAA batteries for the grill light will last. Far less time in the winter, for sure. I grill a lot in the dark in the winter months. While I do have overhead porch lighting, it's nice to have a light on the grill itself.
The warming tray is too low. While flipping burgers last night I found it difficult to flip the burgers in the back of the grill as they hit the warming tray. I often use the warming tray to toast buns, so I may work around this limitation by removing the warming tray until I am ready to toast the buns. This is a poor design decision, however, as it directly affects user experience.
EDIT April 16th 2018: I have just removed the warming tray entirely. Problem solved. I still have just enough room to toast buns alongside cooking burgers for our six person family.
The grill is a little narrow from left to right. It's a four burner model, but compared to my previous bargain basement four burner bargain model, this grill feels more like a three burner model. This makes me feel a little bit like I'm getting less for more, which isn't the greatest feeling ever. I'm not sure how much it matters though. Probably not much if the grill lasts 10 years. I never used the fourth burner on my previous grill, so the size is probably fine and just a psychological adjustment.
I like it, but it does have some minor weaknesses. I knew about most of the weaknesses before I purchased the grill. I purchased it anyway because I thought there was a good chance this Weber was the most durable four burner grill I could buy today. Time will tell if that is correct, but I definitely think it's a major upgrade from a cheap box store stainless four burner grill. Weber, feel free to fix those weaknesses and ship me the redesigned model for review. ;)
EDIT April 16th 2018: After my first week of ownership, I'm very pleased with this grill. I'm 99% sure I made the right purchase. It's a pleasure to use, it's very attractive, and my family loves the results.

The first time this grill was shipped to me, there were two large holes in the box and the metal on the grill was crushed in. Looks like a fork lift hit it while trying to lift it (even though the box has a large and clear NO forklift picture on all sides). I 100% blame Amazon for this. Most likely they broke it while preparing to ship it, and then shipped it anyway.
I got my replacement grill today, and this one came with a bent/crushed front door. I was pretty upset at first, thinking about canceling my amazon credit card and prime. After looking at the damage and thinking about it for a while, I guess I don't blame Amazon too much for this damage. The metal on those doors is CHEAP. I mean like heavy duty aluminum foil cheap. A kid could bend it with their hands. You can not lift this thing wrong or you will break it. It was obviously man handled a bit by Amazon, but the freaking thing is heavy, bulky and hard to move perfectly. I don't see any way it could be delivered without breaking.
I honestly don't think this is a grill you want to buy on Amazon. It's too fragile for how heavy and expensive it is. Amazon won't take extra care while moving it, so there's a good chance it'll get delivered broken.
Amazon Deliver: 2/5 Stars - The drivers were friendly and helpful. That's about all the good I can say.
Grill: 3/5 Stars - If this grill were cheaper, say $1500, I'd probably give it a 4/5. Maybe more. The inside of the grill is great quality, but everything else feels cheap. An elementary school kid would be strong enough to easily bend the metal on the doors of this thing. It's cheap.
Considering everything (grill & delivery) I would give this about 2 out of 5 stars. I'm taking away 2 stars because I don't think Amazon can deliver this thing without breaking it. You'd probably have better luck buying the grill somewhere else. Taking away the 3rd star because the grill is over priced IMO for how cheap the materials are on everything except the inside of the grill itself.
After a few months of using the grill I'll update the review. If I'm really happy with it I might bump it up to 3/5, but doubt I'll go any higher than that. Buy it somewhere else, on sale.

I've been cooking outdoors for over 50 years. Wood, charcoal, propane, whole hog roast, ox roast, 400# yellow fin tuna, shellfish, pizza, blackened everything, I buy 1/2 a beef a year, more chickens than I can count and tons of veggies fave passed though my fires and grills. There is a bone yard of my old grills. The latest a 10 yr. old Jenn-aire that melted because I've been pushing 700˚+ at grate level for searing 2" Porterhouses, my fav. This melt down was late summer and my Summit S-470 was a late season purchase for central Ohio. The purchase thru Amazon, delivery and assembly was perfect. I bought 2 big porterhouses, grilled them on the sear station, perfect! Gas grills have always struggled with 'smoking' and I'm looking forward to 2018 and Weber's smoking feature. I like the sharp angles of the flare-up bars over the burners, channels the rendered fat quickly to Weber's fat tray away from the heat, eliminating most flare-ups. This grill is not flawless but minor in nature. Great job Weber!
I think this grill does everything and I am getting Weber's plancha for this grill. If you don't know how sweet enameled cast iron is, it is your loss.
