I really like this grill! It has done wonderful from the first time I started it till now. Never had a issue and the grill always gets hot and stays at temp. I like every feature of this grill including the flavorizer bar, grill grates, push button starter, etc. I can definitely tell a difference in how the burgers taste on my weber compared to other brands I have used in the past. The flavorizer bar definitely gives it the smokey grill flavor. I was disappointed to see the flavorizer bar and the grill grate has been removed in this year model and replaced with that porcelain-enamel coated cooking grate, which to me doesn't make it a grill. To me that is kind of like cooking in a pan. A grill is suppose to allow the fat to drip and burn, giving the smokey flavor. Hopefully they go back to the flavorizer bar and grill grate in the next model.
