The Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black combines a wide range of state of the art features with the distinctive, iconic Weber® Kettle barbecue stylings creating a modern classic that is an easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to live with robust barbecue which will deliver exceptional grilling results every time for many years.
The Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black has been derived from Weber®'s original 1952 heritage kettle barbecue design and uses all Weber's knowledge and experience of charcoal grilling gained over the last 60 years so while the distinctive design may look very familiar features such as the triple plated hinged cooking grate, stainless steel one-touch cleaning system and new, improved high capacity rust proof removable ash catcher bring the whole package bang up to date.
The lid and bowl of the kettle of the Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black have been constructed from robust, durable porcelain enamel coated steel which is designed to be used and abused giving fantastic resilience to fire, rust and the elements to ensure a long and happy grilling life for the barbecue.
At the heart of the Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black are the stainless steel One-Touch cleaning system and new, improved rust-proof removable ash catcher which are both key features in making the barbecue so easy to live with as they make cleaning and maintenance simpler and more effective when compared to most other barbecues as well as preventing hot embers and ash blowing onto decking or patios.
All that is needed to be done is simply slide the One-Touch™ Cleaning system handle from side to side moving the three stainless steel blades inside the kettle causing ashes to fall into the ash catcher beneath the kettle. The ash catcher can then be lifted and slid to one side to remove and empty, when the ashes and embers have had time to cool down, then simply be replaced in the same way.
Below the Ash Catcher there is a handy shelf fitted between the legs for keeping utensils and accessories to hand when grilling as well all weather wheels with kettle covers so the Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black can be easily moved around to the ideal spot for grilling where ever that may be. Conveniently utensils and accessories can also be kept in easy reach when grilling using the tool holders integrated into the weather proof handles on the side of the bowl of the kettle.
The lid of the Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black , which is designed to be kept in place whenever the barbecue is in use to give the perfect grilling conditions, has a weather-proof handle with protective heat shield as well as containing an integrated thermometer and a rust-proof aluminium vent to control the air flow and temperature under the lid for fantastic results whatever is being barbecued and whatever the conditions
Under the lid sits a 57cm triple-plated hinged cooking grate, which makes it simpler to add more coals or briquettes when the barbecue is in use, that gives an expansive 2552cm² cooking area ,with plenty of space to allow for direct and indirect grilling, which should be big enough to cater for socialising with all but the largest groups of family or friends whatever the occasion whether it is planned or impromptu.
The Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black is so easy to use, and flexible in the ways it can be used, that it makes a great choice either as a first “proper” barbecue or as a reliable tool for the experienced griller who will welcome features such as the included pair of Charcoal Rails, which are a real plus when indirect cooking as they permit the spacing of briquettes allowing the heat to circulate around the food so roasting or baking can be successfully carried out on the barbecue.
Weber have also created a vast range of well thought out and well designed accessories to be used with the Weber® Original Kettle Premium™ 57cm Black barbecue to further enhance the cooking options when using the grill or to make it even easier to live with. These run all the way from the outstanding Pizza Oven all the way through to barbecue mitts by the way of utensils, warming racks, griddles, roasting racks, burger presses and much more all designed with Weber's typical blend of style and functionality.
