Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's
our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on gas grill
models like the Q 120.
The grill's primary cooking grates may be made of porcelain coated cast-iron, which generally sears meats better and keeps grilling temperatures more consistent than grates made of porcelain coated steel. The porcelain coating usually makes such grates easier to clean than other surfaces, and the grates should resist rust as long as their porcelain coating isn't chipped.
The Ratings of Weber Q 100 were applied to untested model Weber Q 120, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.
This brand, known for its durability and dependability, went through an entire line and design change in 2007. Weber is known for its quality products in the midpriced to high-priced categories, and grills that feature coated cast-iron and stainless-steel-rod cooking grates and long-warranty stainless-steel burners. (The company offers a natural-gas version for most of its grills.) Weber recently introduced an infrared-searing station on some of its grills, updated its Q line of portable grills, and added colors to its entire lineup. Weber grills are available at many retailers nationwide. Grills range in price from $130 to $3,000. Note that Weber acquired Ducane about four years ago.
Features & Specs - Weber Q 120
Stainless-steel grates Primary cooking grates made of stainless-steel are generally sturdier than those made of coated steel and resist rust even without a porcelain coating.
Coated-cast-iron grates The grill's primary cooking grates may be made of porcelain coated cast-iron, which generally sears meats better and keeps grilling temperatures more consistent than grates made of porcelain coated steel. The porcelain coating usually makes such grates easier to clean than other surfaces, and the grates should resist rust as long as their porcelain coating isn't chipped.
All or mostly stainless Includes more than just a panel or other trim. Based on our limited tests, nonmagnetic stainless is less likely to corrode.

Long-warranty burners While burners remain the grill's most-replaced part, most are warranted for only 3 to 5 years. Better burners are covered for 10 years or more.
Side burner A side burner, which resembles a gas-stove burner and has its own heat control, is handy if you want to cook vegetables or sauce without leaving the grill. A side burner could also be an infrared burner used for searing.
Infrared burner Gas burner that uses infrared technology (ceramic burner, plates and screens, or troughs as some examples) for cooking. An indirect flame is used for cooking food. Burner can be located as the main burner, side burner, rotisserie burner, or any combination of burners.
I have owned this grill (Q100)for almost 5 years. It's good for 2-4 people and has been completely reliable. It is very economical to use; a 20 lb tank of gas lasts me a couple of years and I use it 3-4 times a week.<br /><br />The only negative is you should cover it when not in use because it's shape makes rain flow over and aroundit and that flushed the drip pan grease and can make a mess.<br /><br />If this grill died tomorrow I would not hesitate to buy another one. People are amazed at what a great little grill it is

I purchased this grill when my family and I were getting ready to go camping. I was originally going to go with the Coleman road trip grill, however upon further research I decided to try the Weber. I am so pleased that I did! This grill is simply amazing! It heats up super fast, cooks quickly and evenly and has fabulous flavor! Highly recommend this grill!
