Weber Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill (50060001)
  • The grill surface will accommodate either a large steak, two nice-sized pork chops or a couple chicken breasts. Easy to keep clean
  • It's surface areas is deceiving, you can cook 8 burgers on this with plenty of room.
  • The grill surface is irregular, making cooking a little awkward at times.
  • The cook temp really gets up there and is consistent across the grill surface. Great job Weber.
  • I can't say enough good things about this grill. It might look small but you can get a lot of stuff on the surface provided.

Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill (51010001)
  • This grill gets extremely hot and cooks fast with even heat. One of my favorite design features is the bottom of the grill does not get smoking hot, so you can set it on picnic tables and other surfaces without it damaging them from the extreme heat.
  • It has a few interesting quirks..it heats up very quickly..and while i like the grill bbqing surface..the wider vanes..as oppossed to thinner wire ones ...will absolutely burn bbq sauce onto the grilling surface to the point you better have something approaching a chisel to bust it off.
  • I lay a tin foil strip on top of the cooking surface before folding the side trays over onto the grill grates, place the cover on it and it and your done.
  • It heats up fast ! and that's because it has a small surface area to heat up, if its too hot then turn it down.
  • I was concerned about it having enough grilling surface. It does. We love it.

Weber Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill (50060001)
  • Its not heavy at all for me, but it might be a little challenging for some people, but still manageable.
  • It is very light, most of the weight is well spent in the grill racks. I really like the porcelain coated cast iron.
  • Light weight and easy to take to the beach. I no longer use my large grill
  • Great small enough to fit in the lower compartments very light weight great product
  • Lite weight, have one in the RV and now at the house. Couldn't be happier

Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill (51010001)
  • This is a solid grill, not flimsy at all, and very much comparable to a full size Weber on a smaller scale.
  • It is the perfect size to stow away and then use when needed on the road.
  • I have never owned a gas grill but as far as I can tell the performance of this grill is not compromised in any way by its small size, and it's handled everything I've thrown at it with aplomb.
  • Perfect size for everyday grilling. I had a neighbor who is familiar with gas grills help set it up since I was a little afraid of the gas part, and he thought it was a great little grill.
  • It’s a great size, pretty and simple to use and store. I love it!

Weber Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill (50060001)
  • Because the Weber is cast iron so you can cook ultra fast after preheat and Keep it clean so it doesn't get all Smokey revealing you location.
  • The grill grates alone are wonderful. Cast iron with enamel coating, they are hefty and don't have wide spaces (something I found lacking in other grills - even the large ones)
  • The grates are heavy iron and coated. Every piece of the grill is heavy and well made.
  • Love that it has opening at the bottom to drain out liquid, easy to clean and very sturdy material.
  • Very sturdy and great quality, perfect for camping.

  • I like the sturdy cast metal shell and the split grilling surface.
  • The porcelain-coated grill surface cleans easily.
  • Build quality is excellent and while I have not yet done so, it seems to be easy to disassemble for routine maintenance and comprehensive instructions are provided in the manual.
  • The sidetables are surprisingly sturdy and larger than I thought they would be.

Weber Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill (50060001)
  • The under grill tray is nice for removing grease and cleaning out. If you buy this though, you should also buy the cover.
  • Drip tray replacement is awesome and is just of good quality. Love those burgers.
  • This is a great,trouble free gas stove. This is lighter than earlier models, has easily cleanable grease tray with good access. Can get really hot when needed.Easily transportable,
  • Clean up is a breeze, and the little aluminum trays this grill uses to catch the drippings also fit the larger Weber at the house. You just can't go wrong with a Weber.

  • Grill is awesome, but check the features before going for the lower end model, I wanted a thermometer and a bigger dome.

Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill (51010001)
  • Roadtrip is almost impossible to get clean after something gets burnt on to the chrome surface under the burners. We bought a griddle for one side and it worked well.
  • The thermostat seems to be better than my first one because it actually adjusts from around 600 degrees on high to 350 degrees on low.
  • One of my favorite design features is the bottom of the grill does not get smoking hot, so you can set it on picnic tables and other surfaces without it damaging them from the extreme heat.
  • One of my favorite features of this grill is the design of the grates.
  • The side folding tables are a great feature, and the thermometer is very handy as well. I will definitely buy this grill again if I am in the market ever again.

  • No area to which you can move the meat to have less heat. Definitely do not recommend and frustrated that I can not return.
