Appliances Connection is proud to announce that we are now an official retailer of Weber outdoor grills—a company with a longstanding legacy of delivering high quality and innovation to the outdoor chef who wants to cook with confidence.
Weber was first conceived in the 1950s by welder George Stephen who, inspired by the shape and design of the metal buoys he made every day at work, began tinkering with a strange, simple, rounded-bottom grill atop a three-legged pedestal stand. Dubbed "Sputnik" by friends and neighbors due to its resemblance to the iconic Russian satellite then making news, George Stephen began marketing what he called "George's Barbecue Kettle," and soon found America eager to try his grill with its innovative handled lid that kept flavorful smoke inside while also preventing grease flareups. Revolutionary in its design at the time, it remains to this day one of the most popular grills on the market for grillers of any stripe.
Today, Weber continues its proud tradition of American innovation and know-how at its headquarters just outside Chicago in the small town of Palatine, Illinois, where their manufacturing facilities are still churning out some of the finest outdoor cooking appliances you’ll ever find. Each product is held to a “zero defect” standard of quality that ensures both performance and endurance, undergoing a litany of tests so that when a Weber customer wants to grill, they get to grill.
THE WIDE WORLD OF WEBER
Since then, Weber has grown into one of the most well-known and popular name brands in outdoor cooking appliances, with their product line expanding and progressing with the tech of the time. Nowadays, they offer a wide selection of grills, more expansive, fully loaded one-piece outdoor kitchen units, and even slow and steady smokers.
As you would expect from one of the most venerable brands names on the market, Weber’s line of fine grills can be found in virtually every configuration and style imaginable. While most of their grills are now fueled by natural gas or liquid propane, they still uphold the tradition of the classic backyard barbecue with their instantly recognizable charcoal grills. And if you want to grill on the road less taken, they also offer a choice of electric grills for that added control, and pellet grills for that rich, woody aroma.
They’re also available in a variety of installation options, the majority of which are freestanding for easy, spur-of-the-moment patio placement. But they also have a quite impressive line of built-in grills for the serious BBQ boss, and portable grills if you want to grill on the go. They even have unique, egg-shaped Kamado grills for those who want a grill with singular form and efficiency. And all of these grills can be found in one of Weber’s dozen-plus distinctive series, whether you want the ultimate retro style of the Original Kettle Series, the portable cooking power of the Smokey Joe and Jumbo Joe Series, the massive multi-burner barbecue behemoths of the Summit Series, or the ultimate convenience of Wi-Fi remote control and monitoring you can find in the Genesis II and Spirit collections. No matter what kind of grill you want, Weber is ready to deliver.
For those who want to add a dash of color to their grill, you can find Weber grills in a palette including green, blue, orange, beautiful copper, and many more that will attract as much attention as the food you cook on them.
