What Makes a Weber Different


Weber gas grills are like no other!

Weber is an American company headquartered in Illinois known for producing top-quality, highly dependable grilling products.  Weber gas grills are among the most popular grills in the world. While the majority of  their grills are manufactured in the US, they ship worldwide. Their first product wasn’t the Weber gas grill that's so popular today: it was a covered charcoal grill. However, this charcoal grill was the first of its kind, invented by an Illinois metal worker named George Stephen. The shape of a buoy later inspired him in the creation of the original Weber kettle grill.

Since its founding, Weber has been a customer-centric, innovation-driven company using customer input to lead the development of new features across their product line. New ideas are tested in the Weber grilling lab to ensure that they function as designed and are easy to use.

What sets Weber apart from other manufacturers?

  • All grills are tested prior to leaving the factory. Every lid is examined, every igniter tested, every burner lit.

  • Replacement parts are easy to order and to install, extending the life of your grill.

  • Certified barbecue experts are available 7 days a week to field questions on usage and care. Weber fields more than 500,000 calls per year from customers.

  • A 10-year warranty covering all parts of full-size Weber gas models starting in 2018!

  • Thoughtful designs that work, such as centralized grease management and long-lasting ignition.

Weber's GS4 technology is a core part of Weber's design quality. The GS4 grilling system offers reliable, durable ignitors, high-performance burners, a convenient grease management system, and Weber's unique Flavorizer® bars, an incredibly popular Weber innovation created in the 80s. Learn more about the Weber GS4 Grilling System in our article.

You can see why Weber gas grills are like no other brand on the market. As a small business, we can't waste our time on poor-quality grills. We sell Weber because they're worth it!

Now we'll dive in and explore some of their individual grill series and some other important topics.

  • If you're looking for a basic gas grill for hot dogs and hamburgers, or want nice features in a small space, you'll probably like the Spirit series.

  • Looking to upgrade your backyard? Want to explore premium features like sear stations and side burners? These upgrade models start at $1,129. Check out the Genesis series.

  • Do you want the best of the best? Willing to spend more than $2,000? Check out the Summit series.

Weber's Original Kettle

Today, the Kettle is available in sizes from 18" to 26"  in a variety of colors and there is even a Performer Deluxe Kettle model integrated in a cart with a charcoal storage bin.

These charcoal grills are priced starting at $119 up to $579 for the Performer Deluxe model.

Warranty and Pricing Info


Industry-Leading 10 Year Major Component Warranty

Weber's warranty on their Spirit, Genesis, and Summit models is second to none. These models come with a full 10-year parts warranty. This is unheard of in the industry! Obviously the warranty excludes ordinary wear and tear and is subject to certain terms and conditions but for all intents and purposes it is a bumper to bumper warranty covering all manufacturing defects. Read the full warranty on all Weber products here

 

Transparent Pricing Policy

Another thing consumers love about Weber is their transparent pricing. You'll essentially find the same pricing on Weber grills throughout the US. This alleviates the need to shop around and you can buy your Weber from any authorized retailer.  Some retailers offer incentives like free assembly and delivery, or free removal of your old grill to entice customers to buy. Some even offer free propane fills or throw in small accessories at no charge. Regardless, what you see is what you get as far as the actual price of the grill itself!

At Bellingham Electric, we offer: FREE assembly, FREE delivery, and FREE removal of your old grill!

Accessories


Grill Covers

Covering your grill in the off season and when it is not in use is an inexpensive and effective way to protect your grill and prolong its life. A grill cover protects your grill from the elements, helping to preserve its operational components like handles, hinges, wheels, side tables, and so on. Not only that, it also helps keep your grill looking its best cosmetically, protecting it from the elements and the sun's damaging rays. Weber grill covers range in price from $20 to $112 depending on the size and series of your grill.

 

Cooking Utensils, Brushes and Cleaners

Weber offers a complete line of cooking utensils for the true grill master. They also make specially designed brushes and cleaning products to aid in cleaning your grill. A clean grill is a long-lasting grill and a clean grill produces the most delicious results!
