Weber have constantly developed their original 1952 heritage kettle design using all their knowledge of charcoal grilling gained over the last 60 years so while the distinctive design may look very familiar features such as the stainless steel One-Touch Cleaning System, hinged cooking grates and rust proof removable ash catcher have brought the whole package up to date so to take the concept one extra stage further Weber have thought long and hard to create the Master Touch for introduction in 2014.
The Weber Master Touch 57cm has been developed using the feedback from users of the much loved, much used and much abused One-Touch Premium and follows their recommendations by adding a Tuck-Away lid holder and Gourmet System grate to it's stylish functionality for even more grilling versatility combining these with a choice of four distinctive colours, Crimson, Smoke, Spring Green not forgetting Weber's signature Black.
The heart of the Master Touch is Weber's Gourmet BBQ System grate which can be used as a standard cooking grate or simply lift out the middle section and replace with one of the five interchangeable accessories; wok, sear grate, griddle, pizza stone or poultry roaster, all of which can be purchased separately, to expand the range of grilling options way beyond what the expectations usually would be for a charcoal barbecue.
The simple to use Tuck-Away lid holder gives a convenient, always available, easy to access place to put the lid when taken off the kettle, no more more looking around for a flat surface and having to leave the lid 4 metres away from the grill, which also doubles up as a windshield when either lighting the coals or moving food around on the grates.
The build quality of a Master Touch is everything we have come to expect from a Weber Charcoal grill as the lid and bowl are made from high quality American steel with a porcelain enamelled coating, a powder coating which is fired onto the steel at approx 800°C to give a shiny black coating which is sturdy enough to handle all types of weather conditions allowing the enjoyment of barbecuing all year round.

I needed a barbecue that I could close the lid on for smoking after being given some gifts from friends as my existing one just wont do. Weber I know are good quality but this one excels my expectationsThick sturdy grills for coals and food. The coals trays make it easy to separate after lighting. Easily hang the lid on the back. And its got the clean out system.Not used the GBS yet but I have done smoke butterflied leg of lamb delicious rack of lamb and what I really wanted to do Buffalo wings. All nicely cooked and smoked using a variety of wood chips.Its easy to assemble by one person as I did. Excellent build quality. A doddle to operate. Very pleased with my purchase.Would recommend.
I was reluctant to pay 200 previously Id stuck to supermmarket kettle items at 20-40. However the difference in quality design and cooked end result is MASSIVE - the Master Touch really is fantastic. First outing I managed a full chicken indirect followed up by burgers and belly pork on direct heat. Chimney starter and Weber briquettes well worth buying too. Great service and pricing from Dawsons as always.
