Weber Q 100 Portable Gas Grill

Weber Q 100 Portable Gas Grill

Weber-Stephen Products Company

The Bottom Line

This portable grill is a master of design. It packs up small with the side tables folding into the grill body yet is large enough to cook up several steaks at once. It uses standard 14 ounce propane tanks (not included) and has a 189 square-inch porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grate that makes it a big, little grill. At around $160 this grill has Weber's durability and a unique design that has won several awards. Not only a great grill to cook on, it is cool looking too.

Guide Review - Weber Q 100

Originally labeled the "Baby-Q" this small member of the Q family is a excellently constructed little gas grill that gives you plenty of space and power for the size. What makes the Q grill work is the construction. With a cast aluminum body that holds in heat and a heavy porcelain coated cast iron cooking grate to transfer heat to the food this grill cooks like a full sized unit in a portable size. The 189 square inches of cooking space is large enough to grill several steaks at once so you won't have to grill in shifts.

Great attention to detail has been paid on this grill. In fact Weber spent 5 years developing this line of portable grills. All in all if you are willing to pay the nearly $160 price tag for this portable you're going to get a really good grill and at the rate they are selling, I think this is going to be a product that will be around for a while.

Because of the construction this is a heavy little grill. While not suited for being carried long distances this is a perfect grill for trips to the beach or park. It is also a great grill for apartment dwellers who want a real gas grill but just don't have the space for one.

The only difference between the Q 100 and the Q 120 are the foldout side tables. Since you are probably putting this on a table to begin with, the side tables are really not of value. I recommend saving yourself $30USD and buying this model instead.

THIS IS AMERICAN MADE AT ITS BEST!, Member homeseller1

I bought this little grill on a Friday morning, and by Monday, I had used it five times! Grills steaks and burgers perfectly, and the little canister propane tanks are wonderful. No worries about having to run the 20 lb tank for refill, but just pick up the canisters at Wal Mart. Mine had the cart and cover for it (I actually bought it used, but it was still like new), and I have to say, this is probably the best grill I have ever owned. My next purchase is going to be a Weber charcoal grill. This company has restored my faith in American made. No cheap metal, everything is quality, and I know it's going to last me many years. If you're a single person like me, you could just about cook all your dinners on this little jewel, and you could probably grill four steaks at a time. All I can say is...I LOVE MY WEBER GRILL!!!
