I bought this grell about two years ago. Prior to reading the reviews at the time. I'm sure everyone remembers my revieew at the time, it was labled OOOOPS. There were flat out scathing reviews at the time and I looked forward to seeing how this grill performed. Magnificant! for the first dozen grill-outs. Then what people wrote started to come to life (igniter burning out, uneven heating areas, quick to rust, cheap, not worth the price, etc). The people who wrote that were expecting WEBER quality on a value grill. I will toot my own horn here. I am a master griller, I have a bit of McGiever in me and I always adapt, overcome and conquer. When the igniter when out, don't go purchase another one and complain to the world about it. Buy a $1.99 fire igniter stick at Walmart (and thats probably a 3 pack). Does the same job. When you get the uneven cooking temperature, remove the girlls and the triangle plates underneith the gills. Take a wire brush and scrape off the rust and the grease. Reasseble and it's like new again. The whole process takes less than 3 minutes. Bottom line...if you don't mind a tiny bit of maiintenance to keep this baby working 100%, buy it. If you are inexperienced and or lazy, perhaps this is not the grill for you. I would have been happy if the grill simply lasted once season for the price. Now that I have it figured out, I can see easily getting another 5 to 6 year out of it. I am just that good.
