I bought this grill last summer when my old grill died on me. Well, when you buy a Weber, you get the best quality grill out there. My last grill was a charmglow & it was worth spending the extra money for the Weber. Performance Thorough even grilling of everything I put on the grill including fish & vegetables! I was amazed. My last grill always burned up one side of my fish packet while undercooking the other side. Versatility I cook practically everything on this grill, heck, I even grilled my homemade pizza on it! Ease of Use Very easy to operate. Ease of Cleaning No problem to clean. Durability The construction & craftsmanship of the summit is top notch. Its very sturdy. Design Just look at it! It's gorgeous!
