Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paco Easy assembly with great grilling!
Love this grill! It is one of the best that I have ever owned.
-The electronic ignition is fast and convenient and gets rid of the smelly, dangerous charcoal starters.
-The ashes dropped into the holder with a quick flip of the scrapers.
-The moveable charcoal baskets makes cooking even and distributed.

Man, this grill works wonders and the best part is the fire starter ignition system. No more starting charcoal fires with chimney's with flying paper starter!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by et01267 Great grill, poor packaging / handling
This grill is great. It replaces an earlier version of the same grill (with the stainless top) we've had for over 10 years which had started to rust around the bowl.
My only problem is with the packaging and/or handling. When I began to assemble the grill, I found that the plastic table had a crack along one edge, and the dome top had a big dent in the rim. Fortunately, it was easy to get Weber to send me replacements.

Great upgrade of features from previous charcoal webers. My previous one lasted 11 years of extensive use before the adjacent table cracked - this new one seems to have a sturdier table. Best two new features on the Platinum Performer are
1. Propane starter worked even better than I thought it would - very easy to use.
2. Charcoal bin is ingenious. Not sure why someone didn't think of this one a while ago.
Yes, I was already a big fan of Weber grills. But this one is a great step forward.

Great grill! Additional features like the electronic lighter and the attached cart make it a real pleasure to use.

Best charcoal grill ever! I switched to a small gas grill years ago. Man, have I been missing out on grilling!!! With this grill I know now how much I have missed the joy of cooking with charcoal. This Weber is great! I love the ease of starting the grill with the gas cannister and no lighter fluid. The one-touch cleanup up is just terrific! NO MESS! The styling and nice work table are just beautiful! All the other features of this great grill are just ++++++++!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by miatoi What a difference from gas
Setup was a breeze, love the charcoal storage bin and the green color is beautiful, not just black. Huge cooking area and we had forgotten what charcoal barbequing taste like and is that much more work than the old gas grill. We are very happy with our choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DPP3 It makes charcoal grilling a better experience.
The Weber Performer Platinum with the built-in propane gas ignition system makes charcoal grilling a breeze, though you still need to make sure that you are using good quality, dry charcoal. This Weber grill is so tightly made that the grilling temp can rise to well over 500 degrees. I'm very happy and satisfied with this Weber product.
