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.

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 ++++++++!

Got this about three weeks ago and have used it a fair amount of times. It has a decent sized cooking area and maintains a sufficient temperature. Being a low and slow cooker myself, this is definitely a plus. I have not used the propane ignition yet though. I figure that I will when the weather gets a bit more windier and colder.

I bought my grill 3 years ago. I love my grill. I keep it in the garage so I should never have to buy another. It's sturdy, wheels that lock, and I don't have to buy lighter fluid. Not one thing bad to say about this grill. Go buy one!

I have always liked the weber grills, the only thing is that is didn't have a table with it. Finally found this one on line. I was a little leery of buying for the cost, since no one had one to see. I bit the bullet and ordered it, and I am so glad I did. It is great. The table surface is a good size, and I really like the touch n go ignition to light the charcoal. It actually works better than using lighter fluid and lighter or the chimneys.

So easy to use and would definitely recommend. My father has this grill from the first year it came out over a decade ago and is still going strong. The new details between then and now are so much more improved. This grill is a must.

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.

This grill is perfect! It assembled easily (I did it by myself in about 45 minutes). The instructions are clear and concise. It lights like a dream and of course, being a Weber, cooks my food perfectly!

I really wanted the taste of charcoal but the starting-ease of gas. And I got it with this grill. Assembly took a couple of hours but was very straight forward with no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carl Finally, the Weber I've always wanted
I currently own 3 Weber Kettles and the wife bought me the Performer Platinum for my birthday. This is the ultimate Weber Kettle, no more lighter fluid, an attached table. I'm in heaven, think a nice Prime rib would be a good break in meal

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ABR5 Gas lighting is a great feature
The best charcoal grill with ease of lighting makes the need for a propane/natural gas grill superfluous! The cart is adequate for most cooking, although more counter space, especially when the need to access the charcoal arises, could be considered
Cooked two beef tenders to perfection this weekend!.

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.

We love it. So much easier with the gas starter. Weber is always our number one choice, and this grill is the best. The table attached to the grill is convenient to hold all your food, or anything you need for preparation. We had our grill shipped to the store and it arrived within days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mlohorn really great!
we love this grill. so easy to use, and the combination of a gas start with charcoal grilling is wonderful. we purchased the green model online, which wasn't available in-store. it is nice looking (some folks had complained about the blue model being too light in color), and works like a charm!

i love my new grill - it stands up to the reviews it has received. I previously had a Weber grill and really enjoyed it but I love the fact I no longer need lighter fluid. The built in charcoal holder and temperature control are great features.

I am dedicated to charcoal grilling. This is the best charcoal Grill I've ever owned. This grill is durable and holds up to weather and keeps producing a fine product. I have owned this grill for about four years and don't want anything else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty The product is working great, but was missing a timer that was supposed to be in the box
The unit works fine and was easy to assemble. The only draw back was that there was supposed to be a clock/ timer included and it was not in the box.

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 Peggy this is the best BBQ grill I ever owned. I gave my gas grill away to a neighbor and will never go back to gas again.
other than it being on back order, my purchase was great.
