Summit® E-470 Gas Grill is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by alnauto from Nice to look at and cooks well I bought this 6 years ago and it is kept covered and out of the weather. Have used it at least once a month in the winter and continuously in the spring and summer. This year all of the handles are rotting from behind the chrome and the hinges and sheet metal parts are crumbling. The Stainless is holding up well but not the metal and pewter parts. 10 year warranty but this is considered wear and tear. Which I understand. Friends and family have purchased the same with no problems, just my luck I suppose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rdsii from Weber are great grills... RUST is BAD I am a big weber fan. I had there 1st gen Genesis with the wood shelves. finally the burners and grates and wood were shot. Good service life. I bought a new Genesis and it started to rust and went thru a lot of grates. I moved and left it at the house and got a summit NG grill. the burners and grates and stainless steel stood up well. But the stand and fire box rusted real bad. Weber was good to deal with. Did nothing with the stand but sent a new firebox. Everything bolts to the firebox.. They sent no bolts screws and they were rusted bad as well. So I bought another Summit and was told they were made better. I also got another stainless steel (there not all stainless) the firebox has rusted quicker than the old one.. There great cooking grills but the porcelain cover steel is real bad on the fire box. This cart has stood up better but the service life is less than the last. The bad part is the firebox rots out where the valves go into the burner and you get fire out of the firebox in the valves area... I do not know what I am going to do. I would give it a 5 for cooking and being solid. Rust makes it a 1..

Rated 4 out of 5 by ariesfool from rust and chrome bubblimg I did the annual gill cleaning this weekend. The gill is kept covered by a Weber cover and stored under an enclosed porch. I have rust on the both side trays( stainless) and all four handles and has the chrome bubbling. I am very disappointed in these two areas. As for the other construction, I am satisfied and it grills very well. I would have expected better quality parts by having the Weber name and the Weber price over it's competitors. The features that this grill has is wonderful and I do like it. It would have received a 5 star if not for these two problems.
