Weber 22.5-Inch One-Touch Gold Kettle Grill

Weber's One-Touch Gold kettle grill is a great buy for anyone looking for a classic model with a few convenient extras. The design is sleek. The results are delicious. As with all Weber grills, this kettle's lid and bowl are constructed of premium porcelain-enameled steel--which means not only does heat radiate evenly, but the grill will survive if it's left out in the rain. The cooking surface (22-1/2 inches in diameter) is big enough to accommodate six large steaks, twice as many burgers, or up to a dozen kebabs, and the grill's classic kettle shape keeps flare-ups to a minimum.

Heavy-gauge porcelain-enameled lid and bowl, factory-assembled stainless steel One-Touch cleaning system, rust-resistant aluminum legs and high capacity ash catcher, glass-reinforced molded nylon handles, hinged cooking grate. Available in 18 1/2- and 22 1/2-inch diameter models, with a limited 10 year warranty.

The top of the three-legged Weber line, May 22, 2006
After using a 22 1/2 inch Weber for 12-13 years and never paying any attention to taking care of it, I decided to get the new One-Touch with the bucket ash catcher--the "Gold" model. I also went with the blue color for an extra ten bucks.

There is nothing wrong with the Silver model but the addition of the enclosed bucket-type ash catcher is enough of an improvement to make the Gold model the top choice. As much as I loved my old Weber, I always had ashes scattered around on the patio after using it. That open pan-type ash catcher could be mighty messy, especially in the wind. It's not a concern with the One-Touch Gold.

It's easy to love a Weber grill. The design is a classic and it has proven itself for around 50 years. The grill is incredibly versatile. I only rarely use my big smoker since it's pretty simple to slow cook roasts, ribs and briskets on the Weber. And it's ideal for direct grilling of steaks, burgers, sausages and vegetables.

The one accessory you should get is the Weber chimney starter. Take it from me, you won't regret it at all. I've owned three or four other chimney starters and ended up going back to charcoal lighter because none of them ever worked well enough to reliably get a fire going. Well, the Weber works and it saves the expense of the lighter fluid and the time it takes to burn off the odor and taste.

If you're on a budget, the Silver model will work just as well as the Gold. If you're willing to spend extra for more convenience, the Gold One Touch is the way to go. The blue one looks nice too. 84 Customer Reviews
