Very solid construction and the individual burners are great and always light on the first try. It heats up very quickly. I haven't used the rotisserie or smoker yet. The lights in the knobs seem to be very finicky - I have to play with the battery pack each time I want to turn them on. This is my first natural gas barbecue and so far I am not missing the propane tank at all, especially with this barbecue

This is my first Weber and it was definetly worth the wait. I've been grilling for over 30 years and started with charcoal but made thw switch to gas about 17 years ago. Basically I just got tired of all the clean up afterwards. Over the years I've purchased several different gas grills it he $300-500 range. They would only last 3-5 years and then needed to be replaced. I was fed up and decided that I wanted something better and longer lasting. I di a lot of research and all the data pointed to Weber grills. I made up my mind and went to Home Depot to see them first hand. Originally I was looking at something a little less pricey but then my pointed to the Summit 470. She said "That's the grill we should get." I was a little reluctant at first but when I saw the built-in smoker box, I was hooked. I have never has a gas grill with so much temperature control. I can smoke ribs and keep the temperature right between 225-250 for the entire grilling process. Everything I've grilled has been perfect and with the Weber guarantee, this grill can't be beat. If your fed up with buying a new gas grill every few years then this is the one for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerhard perfect grill
I have had many grills before, in all price ranges, and this Weber grill is by far the best in its range. Solidly built, well designed and engineered, it has met and surpassed my expectations within days.
Preheating is very fast, temperature controls work well, rotisserie works great and produces just the right amount of heat. Design of the grease catch pan is well done and easy to clean.
Double-walled hood keeps the heat inside without heating the surrounding area and the cook.
All-in-all, a solidly built and beautiful gas grill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mule My 17 year old Summit worked fine, but all the new features and options are fantastic.
Very easy to move in and assemble. There is a bunch of packaging to be recycled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gregor I should have purchased this Weber grill the last time.
I purchased a different grill two years ago because of the glowing review given by a consumer's mag. of Large Grills. previously I had worn out a Weber Genisis. (had it for about 20 years..) But soon after I started to bbq I found I actually hated the dang thing: extremely hard to clean the firebox area (the Weber's have a simple pull-out drawer that is easy wipe clean and refit.) the corners were very pointed and sharp (cut my gill cover) no hooks to hang tools (I fashioned my own) I can't believe I didn't see all the little things before I bought it. NOW this Weber Summit is perfect: molded aluminum corners (curved), built-in tool hooks, very easy to clean, it heats up fast and evenly. So far I've cooked chicken, kabobs and fish. I've had the grill for a week and a half and all the food has cooked just right! Home Depot was friendly and easy to work with, too. I am extremely happy, now. Greg in Santa Rosa, Ca.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ztea pretty awesome grill
I haven't used all the features yet (like the side burner and the rotissery), but for basic grilling of a lot of stuff at once, like burgers and hot dogs on one side and vegetables on the other, it's a great grill.
assembly was more time consuming that I thought.
