New Weber Kettle’s in 2015!

I noticed on the Weber Kettle Club Forums today that Weber appears to be coming out with some new grills/grill redesigns in 2015!

I’m not sure yet if these new grills will be replacing any of Weber’s existing line-up, but they appear to be awesome no matter what.

The Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill (left) appears to be very similar to the existing 22.5 One-Touch Gold, with the additional features of:

  • Heat shield in the lid handle
  • Re-designed ash-catcher that makes it easier to close your bottom dampener

The suggested list price (according to Amazon) is $159 USD ($10 more than the 22.5″ One-Touch Gold).

Weber Master TouchThe new Master-Touch Charcoal Grill (right) appears to be a happy marriage between the traditional 22.5 One-Touch Gold and the 26.75 OTG, with the addition of the Gourmet BBQ System Hinged Cooking Grate.

This has the additional advantages over the 22.5 One-Touch Gold:

  • Sits 3.5″ higher
  • A convenient lid bale (holder)
  • Both the lid handle & lid dampener come with a heat shield>
  • The Gourmet BBQ System Hinged Cooking Grate
  • Re-designed ash-catcher that makes it easier to close your bottom dampener

The suggested list price (according to Amazon) for this unit is $219 USD ($70 more than the 22.5 One-Touch Gold).

The new Performer Deluxe Charcoal Grill (left) appears to be very similar to the existing Performer Platinum Charcoal Grill, with the only additional advantages that I could see being:

Suggested list price (according to Amazon) of this unit is $499 ($130 more than the Performer Platinum Charcoal Grill).

I’m very excited by these new grills, and I look forward to the spring when I get a chance to visit my local Home Depot and check out these new additions to the Weber family!
