I purchased this grill to replace an inexpensive charbroil gas grill. Assembly was straight forward with great instructions. Certainly not a Weber. Since the webber has more cast aluminum . But you can't beat the price difference. I like the stainless grates. They are nice and heavy. The warming rack design is a first for me. It's a flat plate of sheet metal, with slots, coated in porcelain. We will see how that works. The side tables are stainless. I read one article stating they were painted silver. Not this model! Ignition works great and my propane tank fit like a glove. I also purchased the factory cover. Fits nice and snug with enough room for my grill brush to stay on the hanger. Over all very pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scout Can't find anything better for the price!
Very easy to set up (took less than 45 minutes). The grill can get up to over 400 degrees very quickly with even heat distribution. It is very sturdy and is built by Weber so this was expected.
I would recommend this grill to anybody, especially those who are not looking to spend the money to get the Weber Genesis series. In my opinion the Ducane 3100 wins over Weber's Spirit series.
The warming rack is very odd. i simply just didn't install it so I would have more grill area.

I have owned Weber grills and some lesser brand grills in the past and I was considering a Weber again. My brother has had a Ducane for 15 years and he loves it. Now that Weber owns Ducane it seemed like a good choice to make. The quality is Weber at a lower price. I have been cooking on it for a few weeks now and it has a few hot spots but nothing that you can't figure out quickly. I chose the 3100 because I didn't need a ton of space. I can easily cook 9-10 chicken breasts or steaks at a time. I like the stainless steel grate better than the ceramic that comes on the Weber. The ignitor always works on the first try and the grill heats up quickly. It took me about an hour to assemble the grill. The instructions were large and easy to follow. I enjoy building things so it wasn't a hassle for me.
My only complaint is that Home Depot had free shipping on all products over $299.00. The Ducane 3100 was $299.99 but they wouldn't give free shipping on Ducane grills. I even paid with my Home Depot card. It cost me $55.00 to have it drop shipped to my local Home Depot. It was still less money than the Weber Genesis and just as good a grill in my opinion.

Hard to assemble, but what grill is not? Once you get that out of the way you will love this grill. Cooks great and I love the stainless steel grate. For the money it can't be beat.

This grill is not only durable and built to last, it cooks amazing with no cold spots. Assembly was easy and instructions are very accurate.

Pretty nice barbecue so far, took a little getting used to it heating so quickly. You have to start each individual burner one after another, but that's okay. I have not grilled on steel grates before, but it seems to cook evenly.

Hate seeing Home Depot Discontinue this unit; but being an online order only I can see why. Love that fact Ducane is owned by Weber and so far I have really enjoyed this grill. Reasonably sturdy construction, was pretty easy to put together with two people. This grill can put out some heat as far as I'm concerned, I've had to turn it down each time I've cooked with it and the grilling area is about perfect for me as I only really cook for 2-6 people. Never thought the tool hangers on the side would make much of a difference but they sure make it easy to keep clutter out of the way when your cooking.
Great buy for the price IMHO.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gipper Ducane/Weber Grill Perfect so far so good
I just received this Grill a few day ago from an online Home Depot purchase. The grill was delivered by NEMF strapped to a pallet, The carton was in perfect shape, as far as the packaging it was also perfect. The grill and all it parts are very well packaged, it is almost impossible to have a part that is scratched or dented. The grill went together perfectly, everything fit like a glove. The quality is just like the 3-burner Sprint Weber Grill only $200 less. So far I have nothing negative to report. Went together great looks great. So far very pleased, and once the snow stops I will report back to how well the grill cooks.
