These grills ooze quality. No major components on the Q1200 will rust. The essential parts – the grill box, lid, and grill grates – are composed of cast aluminum. Nylon reinforced with glass – in a fiberglass kind of way, I assume – is heat resistant and durable.
It’s designed to clean up fast. Cleaning is never fun, but the Weber Q grills are much easier to clean than most other portable grills on the market.
My favorite feature is the cooking surface. The heavy-duty cast-iron grates have a tough porcelain coating. Contrary to many opinions, as long as you take the time to preheat appropriately, they will absorb and distribute heat evenly, resulting in delicious seared-in flavor.
