The Performer Platinum Grill features an exclusive Touch-N-Go gas ignition system that ignites charcoal briquets with the push of a button. Especially handy is an LCD countdown cook timer with a large readout . The timer attaches to the grill or can be easily removed if you’d prefer to take it inside or keep it with you. The grill’s classic porcelain-enameled bowl and lid with a One-Touch Cleaning system and high capacity ash catcher make clean up hassle free. Storage options are plentiful with the CharBin storage container which protects your charcoal from the elements and the built-in Thermoset work table that provides a great work surface for preparing your next grilled masterpiece. Also features a wire bottom shelf, no-rust aluminum vent and a glass-reinforced nylon handle.
This might just be the most versatile charcoal grill ever made. The Weber Performer Platinum Charcoal Grill gives the charcoal griller everything you need and more. One really unique feature, and perhaps our favorite, for a charcoal grill is the Touch-N-Go Electronic ignition system. It's simple: place your charcoal over the flame-outlet tube and press the electric igniter button. Propane fuel will light your charcoal in a matter of minutes. No lighter fluid, no newspaper, no lighters, and no mess! Keep track of your cook with the large LCD read-out cook timer that can easily be removed and reattached.
The grill itself has the classic 22.5in porcelain-coated bowl and lid, with a durable built-in thermometer, and includes the easy-to-use One-Touch cleaning system that makes removing ash simple and quick. Just twist the handle on the deep spill-resistant ash can and it will drop down without getting tangled in the grill's legs. Never drop ashes all over the patio again.
The durable Thermoset work table has plenty of room for food preparation, sauces, and includes a Tuck-Away lid holder to keep the lid upright while you are working inside the grill. The heavy duty cart comes with 2 locking casters and the 2 larger all-weather wheels are crack proof. The cart also has a lower shelf for storage AND a flip-out weather-protected CharBin for storing your charcoal.
The 363 square inch hinged grill grate has flip-up sides for adding more charcoal while indirect grilling. The hinges on the edges allow for adding more charcoal or stoking the fire at any point throughout your cook. The Performer even comes with Weber's awesome Char-Basket Charcoal Fuel holders. We cannot count the number of gas-grillers the Performer has converted to charcoal because it's just so easy to use.
