Summary: I purchased this product because I was interested in being able to cook for a family or two. When I recieved it, it was damaged in the following ways: Metal handle used to move the bbq when fully assembled was bent, the big lid was dented and ovalized not allowing it to sit on top and seal, and the metal handle on the lid had one of the welds holding it already broken. Since I had already unpacked the weber, I did not want to repack and return.
Summary: This is the best grill I have ever owned. Only two drawbacks in my opinion. The first is the price and the second is that Weber does not manufacture a rotisserie for this unit. I called Weber about a rotisserie kit and I was told that Weber has no current plans to manufacture a rotisserie for this grill. I told the rep I would return the grill in a month if no rotisserie was offered.
Summary: this is by far the best charcole grill out. huge cooking surface. cooks evenly and the food taste great. i love the ash catcher. no mess what soo ever. if you got a couple extra bucks i reccomend you do invest in this grill.
Pros: Adds Flavor To Meal, Cooks Efficiently, Large Grilling Surface
Summary: First of all, I'm a loyal Weber fan and have owned numerous models over the better part of 40 years. I consider them the best of the "backyard BBQ grills", so no hate mail please, but let's keep it in perspective. For the same amount of $$$ you can get two Gold one touch 22.5" and have more combined cooking space, not to mention the flexibility of setting one up for indirect and another for direct grilling, OR set up one as a smoker and another as a straight grill, OR...
Summary: I am very happy with my 26.75 one touch gold. It can accommodate grilling lots of food or a large food item. 1. Out of the box: It was easy to assemble overall. I don't consider myself handy with tools or assembling things, so that's saying something. The toughest part for me was getting those legs all the way in. Just be patient, make sure one hand is on the wheel, grip firmly and push steadily.
Summary: It's a big Weber Kettle Charcoal grill. By definition five stars in my book. Over the years I've had two 22" Weber Kettles. Got rid of the original cuz the dog would eat the ash out of the tray and get sick :-) So I went for a 22" OneTouch Gold. Several years later I acquired a charcoal smoker mostly for the larger cooking surface. So I gave my OneTouch to my little brother (mistake).
Summary: My new 26.75" one-touch arrived last Thursday. The front leg was bent in shipping and after speaking with Weber, they agreed to overnight a new leg. Since I had them on the phone, I then inspected the grill and noticed five different small areas (each no bigger than a dime) in the bottom of the kettle where it was not covered by the enamel. There were some slight ripples in the enamel as well. Weber Cust.
