The Various Models Of Weber One Touch Kettle Grills
For more than a generation, the Weber company has been identified with long-lasting barbecue grills. The company has been very innovative in introducing new grill developments and new accessories. However, one old workhorse that hasn’t been altered much is the Weber kettle grill. It’s been rebranded as the Weber One Touch grill, which refers to its unique cleaning system. The One Touch can be cleaned simply by turning a lever – in other words, ‘one touch’.
The One Touch grill comes in several different variations, and you may ask how they are different. The most basic grill is the Weber Silver kettle. This grill is the least expensive – it usually sells for under a hundo. It has a simple pan underneath the bowl, so when cleaning the grill, the ashes wind up in the pan. However, some may not hit the pan, since the pan rests about five inches below the bowl. That’s one possible drawback of the Silver model.
The Gold model solves this problem with a nice ash-catch can. This can attaches very close to the bottom of the bowl, so all of the ashes wind up inside. It’s straightforward to detach and you can clean the grill without getting your hands dirty. Another aspect the Gold has is a special grate. This grate has two hinged openings on either side which can be lifted in order to add more coal. On the Silver model, you have to lift up the entire grill surface if you want to access the coals. Reviewer Cam Bronfman suggested that you can simply buy the replacement grill itself, and use it with the Silver grill. This would be less expensive than purchasing the Gold grill by itself.
The final model is the Weber kettle Platinum. This grill has even more features than the Gold. It has two attached side tables, on which you can place various things while you use your grill. It also has a more rugged stand than the other models. You can get the Platinum in a number of colors such as red or blue.
Thus, the Weber One Touch grill is a good buy if you are a fan of charcoal barbecue. Look around online and look at a Weber kettle grill review before you choose the model to purchase.
