I owned a One Touch Silver for 15 years, had to replace the grates a couple of times, but the kettle never rusted or looked bad. Oh the grates are available at my local home center. For my birthday in 2004 my wife got me a One Touch Gold and love it, I smoke ribs, shoulders and briskets, grill steaks and anything else. Veggies taste the best when done on the grill. I will own no other grill than a Weber.
