Excerpt: This is the second Webber Genisis that I have owned, the first one lasted 21 years. I kept it out doors in the cold Chicago winters. Quality construction and reliable consistant performance. If you are between a Webber Genisis and something else, even a Webber Spirit get the Genisis due to the quality and size.
Pros: Easy To Cleanup, Easy To Use, Even Heat, Great Design
Summary: I owned a Weber before and knew it was what I wanted again after 10 years. My old grill is still working fine, I just wanted an upgrade. A couple things however: (1) The assembly was not that easy and quite time consuming and (2) I hate that the grill plates leave quite a gap where the two come together. Other than that, I'm totally happy.
