Weber One Touch Gold Charcoal Grill

Looking for a new Weber Charcoal Grill

If you are looking into buying a new charcoal grill, then you really need to look into the Weber grills. Weber is the #1 manufacturer when it comes to grills and they definitely have one for you too.

Their charcoal grills range from the Weber One Touch Silver over the Weber One Touch Gold to the Weber One Touch Platinum. Although they might look a little bit alike, they have quite a lot of differences. Before you go into any buying decision you really shall make a proper comparison, not just only focused on the price, and make a mind about which features you definitely need, which ones are nice to have and which features aren’t necessary at all.

As I just recently did exactly the same and explored every single Weber charcoal grill, I want to help you a bit with summarizing what I discovered and why I decided for a Weber One Touch Gold Charcoal Grill.

The bowl and lid of all Weber grills are porcelain enameled. Together with its round kettle shape this allows the heat to distribute evenly in the grill and give you a better cooking result. Additionally it won’t harm your Weber grill if it is left outside during rain or heavy weather as it is well protected against rust.

Different than in the silver Weber grills, the gold models have a hinged cooking grate which allows you easy refueling while cooking. All the cooking grates are made from plated steel, except from the 26.6” size grill where they are made from stainless steel. The 26.5” version has also a built-in thermometer.

Obviously the cooking area depends on the size of your Weber grill. With a 18.5” Weber grill you get 240 square inches of cooking area. The 22.5” version has 363 square inches and the big 26.5” Weber grill 508 square inches.  But how much is it? So from my experience I can say that you can easily fit 6 steaks or 12 burgers on the 22.5” grill, big enough for a family, even if some friends are coming over.

All the models, no matter if silver gold or platinum, come with an aluminized-steel one touch cleaning system, except of the 26.5” gold version which has a stainless steel one touch cleaning system. This cleaning system works with three blades that move the ash down into an ash catcher. No more dirty hands when cleaning up your Weber grill.

As we are talking about the ash catcher, you will find the biggest difference between the silver and the gold models here. While the silver models have ans ash catcher in a plate like shape, it won’t be able to hold that many ash and some charcoal bits can even fall off. The ash catcher in the gold and platinum weber grills are more shaped like a pot, which makes them holding much more ash and being much more safe regarding dropping charcoal bits and possible fire hazard.

The vents on all Weber grills are rust resistant and easy to move without the need to use a hammer. Also does every Weber grill feature glass-reinforced nylon handles which prevents you from burning your fingers when touching the handles.

The durable all weather wheels make it easy to move the Weber charcoal grill around, even when they are hot.

When comparing the Weber charcoal grill with other companies around, you will find that with a Weber charcoal grill you will get all the above features for much less money than you would need to pay for any other charcoal grill.

I think I covered all the important parts now, that are important to know for making the right decision. If I could, I would even let you try the results, but unfortunately I can’t. So you may decide now for the size you want and continue reading what other customers have to say about these charcoal grills.
