Another great thing about the handle; it doesn’t get very hot when you start the grill. It has steel pivoting legs which fold up to lock the lid in place for added safety. The lid has built in hangers so when you open up the lid it can rest on the side of the grill and it acts as wind shield.

You have 160 square inches of cooking area on which you can fit around four medium sized steaks, so it is just right for preparing a meal for two to three people. The cooking grate is steel and the handles are made of heat and weather resistant materials. The design, however, does make it easy to push something off the grill.

It is simple to assemble the Weber Go Anywhere Gas Grill and it just takes about half an hour. It lights up easily using the push button ignition system and heats up quickly, though it is a bit slower than the regular sized grills. In some cases, there have been some problems with the heat distribution system and customers complained it does not get so hot and needs more power, but when they contacted the Weber customer service, they were sent a new regulator and then it worked like a charm heating up the grill to the required temperatures. When turned off it cools down in about 10 minutes or so.

It is equipped with patented Weber Flavorizer system which smokes the meat and adds flavor to it. The construction material used for the Flavorizer could have been a better one as it starts rusting quickly and a replacement costs a lot. An enamel coating could have done wonders to protect it. Also, due its design, the grease drips over it and it becomes messy.

The Weber Go Anywhere Gas Grill comes with a Weber cookbook as well. The meat cooks evenly and quite well and since it comes with an electronic ignition system and you don’t use charcoal, it doesn’t get messy so it is quite easy to clean the grill, making the maintenance effortless. Not only that, it is even cheaper to use than charcoal.

Though the base and lid are porcelain enameled to prevent them from rusting, it starts rusting after a few years and you get limited warranty with Weber Go Anywhere Gas Grill. Some people also seemed to have problem with the ignition system as the igniter went out in some cases, but it can easily be ignited using a matchstick. Plus, Weber’s excellent customer service makes it a non-issue.

People who buy the Weber Go Anywhere Gas Grill are almost always happy and satisfied with this sturdy grill and its price. It is highly rated and is one of the top 10 portable grills.

With its high portability, ease of cleaning, uniform cooking, fine finish and positive reviews, it makes for an ideal companion when going out to a beach or for hunting, camping and the like.
