Weber 14501001 Charcoal Grill Review

Weber 14501001 Charcoal Grill Review

Grilling is one of the most entertaining kitchen skills you can learn. You see, nothing makes cooking more fulfilling than seeing your family or guests proud of your food. Especially, when that food has been cooked outdoors. But, the success of any grilling depends on your culinary experience and the equipment you use. Closed bowl-grills ensure the meats or burgers don’t lose their original natural aroma to the air. The retention of natural juices during the grilling makes them taste amazing! In this Weber 14501001 Charcoal Grill review, we’ll tell you the good and the bad about probably the best charcoal grill under 200.

Who’s the Weber 14501001 Master-Touch For?

The purpose of any grill depends on its design. Large charcoal grills are best suited for commercial services or for camping trips that involve large groups of people. The small ones- like this one- are best used at home or for a few people.

• Home users

I strongly recommend that every homeowner should have a personal grill. The last thing you’d want is to have your children have an insatiable craving for street food just because they can’t get it at home. Plus, you may want to entertain your guests to the fullest- especially by treating them to an outdoor grilling experience!

• Campers

I don’t believe a camp should end without some outdoor grilling. In fact, for me, such a trip should be about outdoor experiences- and foods! If you’re five to seven people in your squad, you should think about using this grill for your roasting. It’ll handle up to 13 burgers made the Weber way. That’s two for each of you!

• Gift hampers- the generous

When did you last send your parents a good gift? It’s not necessarily something expensive, but just stuff that matches their needs or hobby? Most senior citizens are grillers by nature, and; this provides you with a chance to surprise them! Think about making their grilling experience even better with a small high-end tool. The Weber 14501001 Master-Touch Charcoal Grill is easy to use, and above all, it gives them total control over the roasts.

Weber Stephen Products LLC is one of the leading manufacturers of quality grills. We have reviewed a few of their products including the Weber Original Kettles. These include Weber 741001 and Weber 14402001 which also prove to deserve a rating of more than 9/10.

Weber 14501001 takes the grilling ritual to the next level with its advanced features and exquisite design. First, its grilling space holds up to 13 burgers, as long as you make them using the Weber Burger Press.

The grates are compatible with GBS inserts which are easily hinged to allow you add charcoal when you’re grilling.

And, the machine comes with tool-hooking features to let you hang essential grilling paraphernalia such as tongs and spatulas.

Plus, there’s a built-in professional thermometer. The gauge monitors the grill’s internal heat for precise recipes.

It’s recommended that you buy the Weber 7150 Cover to protect your grill. Think of it a bag or tent that shields the “machine” from weather damage.

Benefits of Using the Weber 14501001 Master-Touch

Weber 14501001’s pricing isn’t for the faint-hearted, but; the features has everyone covered. No doubt, I’d recommend that you purchase it as opposed to picking cheap grills after cheap grills only to end up heartbroken. Here are the benefits of acquiring and using this grill.

• Durability

Your grandfather probably owned an original Weber grill. As small as it might have looked, the grill apparently outlasted most of his home tools. You know why? Because Weber pays attention to design and construction. Made of steel, Weber 14501001 neither last nor breaks easily. The grates withstand any temperature produced by the coals.

• Versatility

If you ever need to expand your grilling experience, you can use the Gourmet BBQ System inserts. Weber 14501001 is compatible with such inserts. They’re sold separately, but they’ll make your grilling experience even better. With them, you can roast chicken or make pizza.

• Ergonomic and convenient

How safe is it to use the Weber 14501001 Master Touch grill? The roasting device has an ergonomic design that protects your hands from the heat. The heat shield, for instance, prevents the handle from over-heating. Then, the porcelain-enamelled lid and bowl can retain heat without peeling, cracking or rusting. The device is also easy to use with the hygienic One-Touch cleaning system.

Cons Of The Weber 14501001 Master-Touch

On the price spectrum, Weber 14501001 occupies the high-end, and you certainly know what that means. Any additional costs such as the cover and Gourmet BBQ System hike up the price. Then, a 363 cooking space is too small to handle a large group of guests or camping enthusiasts.

Weber 14501001 Review Verdict

You know that a grill is an excellent investment if its only cons are in its size and price. Let’s face it- not all grills need to be bulky. Camping and home-based barbecue grills should be small because of convenience and portability. In terms of pricing, you’d rather dig deeper into your wallet to acquire a durable, high quality grill than waste your cash on a low quality grill every month, right? I rate Weber 14501001 at 9.4/10.
