Weber 1421001 Performer Charcoal Grill, Black Reviews


Charcoal Grilling Goes Functional


Pros: Propane Charcoal starter, ash catcher, lid holder all built in

Cons: Expensive, on the small side

I bought this grill on a whim back in April because our LP grill was dead.  3rd LP grill by CharBroil that I've owned that's just fallen apart.   The Performer just looks cool to begin with.  But when you dig a little deeper, you realize that it really is form meets function.   From the lid holder on the side to the charcoal bin to the ash catcher, this charcoal grill has it all.   I think the best feature in my opinion is the propane charcoal starter.  I have a Weber Charcoal Chimney which I use for my small Weber Kettle and my new WSMs.  The propane starter on the Performer is what sold me on going back to propane.   The side table is great too!  I do all my prep on...

Is there another grill???


Pros: Easy to lite. Simple to grill. Easy to operate controls.

Cons: None.`

I have had this Weber performer for 25 yrs and have replaced the cooking grill, bricket grill and the ash catcher bucket once. If I ever have replace parts again.......I will. I love this grill and I use it all summer and most of the winter.

Great as always Weber


Pros: Does everything very very well

Cons: no power button on the included timer

I received this grill as A Birthday present this year and have had it for 4 months. I love absolutely everything about it. I do have one question for Weber though. Why would you design a cooking timer that you can not turn off without taking the batteries out? No power button electronic device??? Silly, but that is my only complaint. I did not get the propane assist model but doubt I would use that very much anyway. I like my charcoal chimney and really love the little charcoal baskets that come with it. It is amazing how little charcoal I go through now as opposed to my 20 year old Weber Kettle. which still works fine by the way and has never been covered up ever. I would recommend this...

Great grill


Pros: Table, igniter, charcoal bin,

Cons: None.

Never thought I would buy a charcoal grill, but after buying this, there's no turning back! It's charcoal grillin made easy.

I'll never buy anything else


Pros: built in charcoal starter, easy clean, even heat, good quality

Cons: nothing

 I absolutely love this grill. I tried other grills for a while, and came back to Weber. They are built top quality. Of course, eventually everything wears out. But, with Weber, you can buy any replacement piece for years down the road. Whenever a friend asks "what kind of grill should I buy" I always recommend Weber. They'll sometimes reply "they're expensive", but really it has more value since it lasts for a very long time. I've tried grills costing half the price, but they're burned through in a few years. And, they'll discontinue parts for it.

No complaints


Pros: Great for basic grilling

Cons: Hard to keep at high temps

I used this for chicken, burgers and steaks. Was never able to maintain a high heat for searing. Still works well and is the secondary grill to my BGE

Best grill for a driveway


Pros: easy start up

Cons: Propane igniter will get gunked up eventually, but easly cleaned when taken apart.

This is one of the best grills to have if you do you grilling on a driveway or a place without a lot of work surface. The table work area makes most two man jobs easy with one person. There are 3 Weber Perfomers in my immediate family alone.-AL

An Awesome Grill


Pros: propane start, work table, thermometer, charcoal bin

Cons: A bit pricey

This is just a really great grill that takes some of the inconveniences out of grilling.  The propane starter works great and the work table is extremely convenient.  Other features like the charcoal bin, lid holder, thermometer, and ash catcher arevery nice as well.  I definitely have no regrets about spending a little extra to get this premium grill.
