Customer Questions & Answers

Will you be able to still use lighter fluid as well as the One Touch Option?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes but who in their right mind would use chemicals to ruin the flavor of the food they are cooking? I use a chimney to light mine. I fill it with charcoal and set it on top of the gas lighter for about five min. then turn the gas off and wait about 15 to 20 min for the coals to be ready. NEVER USE CHEMICALS!

some of the literature states that the performer has a self cleaning feature. Exactly what does that mean ?

Asked by: Anonymous
I don't know what they mean but if you get the heat up to over 500 degrees (which is easy) it would work like a self cleaning oven. The ash cleans easily into a pan at the bottom of the grill for easy dumping.

Customer Reviews

Performer Charcoal Grill with Touch-N-Go Gas Ignition in Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LONG LASTING I PURCHASED THIS GRILL 15 YEARS AGO MINE HAS A STAINLESS WORK DECK. IN THE 15 YEARS I HAVE OWNED THIS I HAD TO REPLACE THE KETTLE LID 3 YEARS AGO THE HANDLE BROKE OFF. IT COULD HAVE BEEN REPAIRED BUT I CHOSE NEW LID BECAUSE THE GRILL WAS IN SUCH EXCELLENT SHAPE YET.OTHER THAN REPLACING THE COOKING GRATE AND CHARCOAL GRATE EVERY FEW YEARS BECAUSE OF WEAR AND CORRISION THE ONLY OTHER PIECE I HAD TO REPAIR IS THE DAMPER/ASH CLEANER I HAD BENT THIS DURING CLEANING IT WOULD HAVE NEED REPLACING EVENTUALY IT LASTED OVER 10 YEARS. THE GRILL IS DEPENDABLE AND WITH THE GAS STARTER YOU DONT GET THAT CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID TASTE. I HAVE THE WEBER ROTISSERIE AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SEE MY REVIEW. IF A GRILL WHERE AN INVESTMENT THIS WOULD BE THE ONE TO BUY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features that other charcoal grills do not have. The Weber touch-n-go grill does ignite the charcoal quickly with the touch of a button. And your food does not taste of propane. It cooks food perfectly. No more chimney starters. Easy to assemble. A nice feature is that it has a lid holder and comes with the side table which is very durable. The charcoal bin keeps charcoal close at hand and keeps the charcoal dry. This grill is easy to maneuver even though it is a bit heavy due to the outstanding quality of this grill. This has been the best Weber charcoal grill that I have purchased. You will not go wrong with this grill, and if you can get it on sale thats even better. And dont forget to purchase the grill cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best grill on the market I've tried several expensive grills and even bought the big green egg but none of them compare to this guy. You can cook low and slow with ease of temp settings. You can even get a smoker kit and turn this thing into a great smoker too. I love this thing but if there was anything I would change it would be the grill grate that holds the coals. It warps with the extreme heat and some of the charcoal falls through. The other thing is the handle could be better insulated so use gloves. Best tasting food ever. I use my egg for keeping food warm if I have a party otherwise it is a decoration I paid too much for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like the Touch-N-Go gas ignition system that ignites charcoal briquets. I previously owned gas grills in the past, but decided to finally buy a charcoal grill. I absolutely love it. I originally thought that the lid would be cumbersome, but it is not. It tilts easily to the side for access to food cooking. Better that the lid tilts to the side as opposed to the back so that one would not burn themselves when opening the lid. At first I thought the lid would be heavy, but it is not. The Touch-N-Go gas ignition system is wonderful. All you need is a small propane gas type that one would use for your camping stove. Wonderful invention. Although the lid had a manufacturer's defect (welder's mark) on the side of it, I e-mailed Weber and within 3 days they sent me a new lid ... no additional charge. I don't think I will buy another gas grill again. I love the flavor the charcoal gives to the food. I had never owned a Weber charcoal grill previously, but decided to go with the Weber because they have been around for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2nd Weber Performer Found out after leaving my 1st Weber behind(divorce): there is NO substitute! There is so much to love about this grill, besides the fact that it's a Weber. You can't beat the convenience of having a work table, charcoal bin, storage rack and the electric ignition (no ore smelly charcoal fluid!!!), and the ash bin. Just a neater cleaner charcoal grill. Then, on top of that? when you are doing real BBQ, the folding grill rack makes adding more wood or charcoal such an easy task. I'm female and adamant about the pro's of charcoal vs. gas. For a great end result for your food, go Weber!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this grill! If your looking for conveniences of gas in a Charcoal Grill this is the one! I have recently switched from gas to charcoal. After having used a charcoal grill on trips to the cabin, I decided I just couldn't pass up the taste of charcoal anymore at home and made the switch. Here is why I picked this one. Convenience was the key here. With the gas ignition, charcoal storage, and a vary large work surface makes this a charcoal grill both my wife an I can use. With other charcoal grills the fastest way to light them is to use a chimney, which I didn't think was as safe as this grill is. (We use the grill on wood deck, also my wife has long hair and having her dump hot coals from a chimney into a grill is probably not the wisest thing). I did get the dark blue color, which I wasn't exactly sure about when reading the reviews, when I first opened the box (indoor lighting) I thought it looked more purple (think MN Vikings purple), however out side it looks dark blue on a sunny day, when it is in the shade or overcast day is has more of a purple hue. In the end I really do like the color as it is different, and makes for more of a conversation piece. Plus, when it is not in used I have the Weber cover which also works great. Be it black or dark blue, if you one to use a cover it's not like it will be visible all of the time anyway. Though I do like black Weber kettles, I just thought on the Performer grills they were just a little too blah. (This from a guy whose favorite colors are Black and Silver) I have been using this grill at least 4-5 times a week over the last few weeks and really enjoy cooking on it. I do feel it is ready faster than using a chimney to start the charcoal, and maybe takes an extra 5 minutes from what my gas grill took to be ready. I am usually cooking after about 15 minutes from lighting the charcoal. I do not have any problem putting out the charcoal and saving it for later use, just close the top and bottom vents. (One reviewer said they had this problem due to the hole the burner has to light the charcoal, but I do not have this problem.) The large work surface makes cooking on it very easy. All said, I am really happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this grill if you are looking to switch from gas to charcoal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perform it does!!! I bought this grill for my fiance and he LOVES IT! It was a great buy. At first I thought it was a bit expensive but all the things it says it can do it does and well. My favorite is the ... well lets face it I love everything about it. The table is just the right size to hold your raw and cooked items in their separate bowls. Like that the lid slides to the side instead of having to find a place on the floor to put it. We have this on our balcony and it doesn't take up all our space not to mention since it has an ash catcher there is no mess to worry about. Love the color options as well as the coal holder and the shelf below. Can't say enough good things about this grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome value and quality! I bought this grill for my husband for Father's Day and he absolutely loves it! He has used this brand of charcoal grill forever and I thought this would just dress up the look a bit, but it is so much more! He loves the auto light feature and the work space, and he really loved the blue color more than I would've ever thought. He was so excited and has been so pleased with this grill! So glad I bought it for him!
