I had seen Weber grills on a show called "Made in America." The show highlights American craftsmanship and quality. I saw a tour of the Weber factory and saw the quality that goes into this product.
Recommend this product?
After that, every time I went to Home Depot, I would look at the grills. I saw that every other one was made in China...except the Weber.
The lid on the Weber was so solid compared to the others. It does not look as fancy, but is sturdy and gets the job done.
I have had cheap grills with a burner and lava rocks. Those belong in the trash. I don't think I will ever have to buy another grill...unless it's a bigger Weber.
Do yourself a favor...pay the extra $ up front and get American quality.
