Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrillEverything Down sizing can be a great thing
With the family shrinking and the old grill going on +20 years it was time to purchase a grill for the size of our family with up to date features. I went with the stainless, looks great and the tank is completely hidden inside. The cast iron grates take a bit more of a beating than the enamel coated ones. I'm also impressed with how cool the unit is with the burners cranking, amount of heat coming off the grill is practically non existent. Quality construction and sturdy when rolling it around. The only gripe is the price but it's a Weber and stainless - really a super grill!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocky Great Grill, Compact, easy to control
Assembly was offered by HD but opted to do it myself (I'm handy). Directions easy to follow, all parts included. Took about 2 hours taking it easy and methodical.
The grill itself is exactly what I need. Small patio in an apartment with an attached closet for storage (can't keep it out). Moving it is relatively easy. It heats up fast and accurate thermometer (I have an oven one from camping). The side tables are just a grill-mister needs for all the dishes and equipment. The Stainless steel model cleans up nicely. Thus far the grill is very representative of the WEBER name. Time will tell.
Recommended for family of 1-4...maybe a small party in a pinch. Two burners allows for direct heat on one side, indirect on the other. Back raised grill is great for brats, my only "complaint" is that the back raised grill is not securely attached to the grill, just sitting in a channel so it can move around if food sticks to it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrillHappy This is the best and highest quality grill I have ever used over my 45 years of grilling.
This Weber Spirit grill is a superior product. It makes grilling fun and easy with outstanding results. It distributes the heat so evenly that it cooks all foods to perfection. It is a high quality, durable, well designed product that is so easy to assemble that my 14 year old daughter assembled it all by herself! I knew that Weber makes a high quality product, but this grill exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it to all.

Originally, I bought this grill for cosmetic reasons: it looked better with my new deck furniture than my old grill. But, I was blown away by its quality construction and excellent performance. It is a heavy-duty, well insulated, 2-burner grill that looks good, folds down for a small storage footprint, heats up fast even in cold weather, and has even temperature across the large cooking area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike One of the best grills I've ever owned
I've had the habit over the last several years of buying a new grill every 3 to 4 years, which is a bit frustrating. I've admired the quality of Weber grills over the years, but always thought I wasn't willing to spend the extra money. I've come to realize that I was being penny wise and pound foolish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck43 A good buy despite the high price
This is my first ever Weber grill. At age 71 I've owned a lot of others, all of which met an untimely demise due to rust and corrosion... even one that cost just as much but was ultimately not as well designed and constructed as this one is (I think). I opted for this particular model since it has stainless steel in the center section of the lid. I hope that the more stainless steel the better. I also note at Weber's website you can find parts for just about anything so I think this one will have a long life.
I guess my age was showing when I assembled this. Although every grill I've ever assembled has locking casters on the front I managed to assemble this one with the locking casters on the rear. I also forgot to include the lock washers under the shelf attaching screws and had to do partial disassemby to fix my own errors. But all was well in the end. It seems to cook well and evenly but doesn't heat as quickly as some that I've owned. So far I like it a lot, especially the fold down shelves and the small cover designed to fit over the folded shelves... very compact.
My only problem with it has to do with installing a new gas cylinder. This has a spring loaded scale that the gas cylinder hangs on to indicate how full the tank is. To install the tank you have to open the front door and lift the tank across and up to the hook to hang it there. If I was 30 years old this would be no problem. At 71 I have to sit on the ground and try about 1/2 dozen times to hook the wavering tank over the hook that you can't see well. It uses every bit of strength I can muster trying to hold about 40 lbs with my outstretched arms. My wife certainly couldn't do it. I haven't figured out exactly what I'm going to do yet but think I can rig some sort of lever that will fit underneath the grill and lift the tank into place... or at least I hope so.

Great size for a small patio. Looks neat and clean with the side tables folded down and covered. Can't say enough about Weber. Great grill.
