Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElEyeOG The Weber Performer - A Real Grilling Experience
I received The Performer as a Father's Day Gift. It is truly a great grill. Assembly is quite simple (with pictures) and can be done by 1 person, though I had assistance. Above all this is a CHARCOAL GRILL. Old School
Its also a very handsome grilling appliance. A Real Man's grill. It has a spacious grilling surface and gets real hot. (a temperature guage lets you know how quickly your grill is heating up). It has excellent features (electronic/gas iginition, Charcoal bunker, E-Z disposal of ashes, sliding lid, and a food prep surface. Food cooks quickly. I especially like the 2 charcoal bins which allow for direct or indirect heat. It also allows for easy replenishing of charcoal.
I've had many Father's Day's gifts (I've celebrated 24 Father's Day's) This ranks as one of THE BEST! See the picture of my assembled grill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrfreeze59 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tommyboy 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by LynnE123 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!

I have had this grill for about three weeks. It is great to cook on. The ability to light the charcoal w/o lighter fluid is great. I also like the ability to store the charcoal in the side container that is part of the grill.
Assemby of the grill was very stright forward. It took a couple of hours I believe.
I had a defect in the paint job on the lower bowl of the grill. Weber customer service actually sent me a replacement that arrived on the Saturday before the 4th of July. I'd suggest inspecting the parts before assembly of the grill. It was good to see how Weber stood behind the product.

We have had this BBQ for about two months now and have used it for everything. We have been converted. If you love charcoal grilling it is the creme de la creme. The ignition system is the greatest, no more having to burn so long to let the lighter fluid burn off. The size is perfect for in direct grilling and easy clean up with the bottom release. The thermometer is accurate and the system is easy to maintain a temperature. The top vents as well as the bottom vents work together to maintain. It is sturdy and the wheels work great on the deck as well as the grass. The storage bin is so handy for the charcoal and has never had any water get inside. My husband and I both say it is worth the money if you can afford it and appreciate a good BBQ.

I ordered this grill from the store on 7/2/12 We received the grill from factory with the lid was damaged, it seemed to have set against something extremely hot at factory to melt the lid like it did. I called the 1-800# almost two weeks ago for a new lid and still have not received it yet. I am sure it is in route, or atleast I hope so. (ref#412428).
There was another part cracked on the grill but my husband said he can get past that since we put it together and then noticed the damages. I am just dissapointed in the cost versus the product. And still have yet to use it.
