Weber 1438001 Review
What I like best with the Weber 1438001 Performer Gold Charcoal Grill is the ample space that is provided for the preparation of food. The grill is powered by charcoal but seems part of a trolley. The space is large enough not just to hold plates or food but to chop or slice food as well.
It is more of a countertop rather than a mere table for holding cooking items. The grill itself is just like other charcoal grills which are often egg-shaped with almost two feet in diameter of cooking space. It has a porcelain-enameled bowl that adds to its beautiful exterior with the same make of lid.

Aside from the space just beside the cook top, the Performer Gold also has ample space beneath the grill and the cook top. This is great for storing utensils, including a chopping board and plates. It can also hold slabs of meat while it marinates and the grill is used for cooking other vegetables like cabbage or corn. Moreover, the grill is movable because it has wheels.
The cooking grate of the Performer Gold is attached to the grill body which ensures that it doesn’t dance or is dislocated when the tong or turner latches on it accidentally. It is steel plated for durability. Cleaning the grill is easy, especially because it uses charcoal.
An aluminum ash catcher is placed below the grill so that when grilling is over or when so much charcoal has been used, it can easily be removed. The ash catcher is large enough to hold kilos of ash before it reaches full capacity.
A removable LCD cook timer is an obvious indication that the Weber uses technology despite its somewhat primitive use of charcoal. In fact, the use of charcoal is the only proof that cooking with the grill uses old technology.
Its design is very much up-to-date with the lifestyle of modern man. Charcoal use is preferred by some people because for them, grilling food using charcoal adds a distinct taste to the finished product. On top of the lid is a built-in thermometer that notifies you of the heat reached by the grill. This is in no way a tool of primitive or old-school cooking.
