About Integrated Weber Connect Technology in the 2021 Genesis and Spirit Smart Grills
Weber product and software engineers developed the new Genesis and Spirit smart grills to meet the needs of modern outdoor cooking for a range of grillers, from those just starting to the advanced.
Weber Connect technology, now integrated into the grills, consists of high-tech temperature probes, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and an engaging smartphone app experience. This technology allows Weber smart grills to adapt to each griller’s individual cooking needs - from hands-on guided grilling programs to new recipes to temperature tracking and food doneness monitoring. Outdoor cooking enthusiasts can utilize Weber Connect technology via an integrated LED display located in each grill’s side table or through the Weber Connect app on their phone.
Genesis and Spirit smart grills give grillers the inside edge on what’s happening under the lid with:
- Synchronous Grilling Results. Through a digital display on the grill, outdoor cooks can tap into Weber Connect technology’s precision and accuracy with an easy-to-use visual dashboard that charts their cooking experience.
- Real-Time Food Monitoring and Grill Notifications. Grillers can now view their food's cooking progress without lifting the lid via audible temperature notifications at the grill or by simply glancing at their smartphone.
- Instant Flip and Serve Readouts. In-app alerts let grillers know when to flip their food and when it’s the perfect temperature to serve.
- Step-by-Step Grilling Assistance. This feature is for every level of griller. Weber Connect technology’s guided grilling programs provide confidence and peace of mind that food will never be under or overcooked again, just perfect each and every time.
- WiFi Connectivity. Outdoor cooks can stay tapped into what’s happening in their grill while making time to socialize with family and guests or check on dessert in the oven.
- Grilling Inspiration. With a wide variety of recipes, grillers can seek new inspiration to feed their grilling creativity and skill development.
