Weber 14401001 Original Kettle Premium GrillWeber 14401001 Kettle Grill  – Easy To Use

It’s convenient to use and clean. The bowl is made of porcelain enamel. It has a removable aluminum ash-catcher with a large capacity. The aluminum damper is rust-resistant. The two nylon, glass-reinforced handles have tool hooks so you can keep them close at hand.

A built-in thermometer on the lid makes it simple to keep track of the heat. For comfort and safety, the handle on the lid has a heat shield.

Ash bin makes cleaning the grill much easier than the old-school charcoal grills.

What Customers Are Saying

Customers who have bought the grill overwhelmingly love it. There are numerous reviewers who swear by all things Weber.  Throughout the reviews, the phrase “best grill” repeatedly comes up.

It is a surprisingly large capacity grill. Reviewers report that they can cook 12 to 15 burgers at a time and six pieces of chicken. The ash catcher and the thermometer get a lot of compliments.

Three updates on this grill that people liked are:

  • The shield on the handle so they don’t get hot.
  • The spring-loaded push pin for attaching the legs. It provides an extra layer of security when you move the grill.
  • Improvements to the stamped cutouts on the ash catcher, making it easier to see when it is open or closed.

The fire on the charcoal can be started in a number of ways. Most people recommend getting the Weber chimney, but using charcoal lighter fluid also works.

People like the fact that the grill is made in the U.S.A. It gets high marks for easy assembly and for how solid it is once put together.

One criticism is the packaging. Apparently some buyers receive the grill with dented legs and enamel damaged during shipping.
