We have own a Genesis Silver grill (now called the Spirit) for well over a decade. It still works well, even through MA winters. Why a new one? My wife wants a larger size with a side burner and hides the tank. Why Weber and not a less expensive one rated by Consumers Report? Weber stands behind their products: phone help in set up, 2 replacement grill starters over time and a replacement regulator. I insisted that I pay for these parts since of the time that past. They wouldn't hear of it. Weber takes a page of support from LL Bean.
P.S. This new Weber Genesis is exactly the same version that we gave our son as a house gift.
PPS The Silver is being donated.
