Still fantastic after all these years
The 18” Weber is just right for my family of three. Grilling with charcoal brings me back to my childhood. This compact design allows for relatively fast pre heat (15 minutes) and quality design makes grilling easy.

Original Style But Not the Original Quality
This 18 inch grill lacks the quality of the 22 in grill I had used for many years. The 4 kettle tabs that hold up the food grill are so poorly designed, and the grill diameter too small, that the grill nearly flips out of the kettle when you try and clean it. The food grill diameter is 17.5 in. and increasing it to 17.75 would help.

Great grill
I love my grill I just wish I got a bigger model. It’s a great size for a couple without any guests, which is fine during Covid times. The food tastes great, assembly was straight forward, and it’s easy to clean.

Good grill easy assembly
Grill works great, was super easy to assemble. Only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star is because it’s a little more difficult getting the ashes out of than other grills I’ve had

Brings People Together
So many friends have congratulated me on my Weber. I keep hearing how well it endures over the years. Since getting this Weber a month ago as a gift, I've been grilling every weekend . I always look forward to experimenting with new techniques and recipes and then sharing a great meal with loved ones. It's now the center of my social life!
