Still compact by name and compact by nature the WeberŽ Compact 57cm kettle barbecue is 10cm bigger than it's smaller sibling the Compact 47cm but this does not alter the fact that it still ideal for anyone who is short on space making a really good option for balconies, smaller outdoor living spaces or easier portability when on the move making a perfect go anywhere barbecue for charcoal grilling wherever, and whenever, your adventures may take you without taking up too much storage space at home.
The well designed and well thought out simplicity of the WebeŽr Compact 57cm makes an dependably tough and easy to live with barbecue that makes it an ideal choice as a first quality barbecue purchase that does not take any short cuts with Weber's reputation as a manufacturer of premier grade charcoal barbecues having the same build quality as well many features that are found throughout Weber's ranges.
In spite of the compact name and nature the WeberŽ Compact 57cm still gives a 2552cm cooking area on it's triple-plated cooking grate making it plenty big enough for four to six, making it ideal for families or small groups to happily grill wherever they may be though the shallower bowl, to reduce overall bulk, reduces the indirect cooking options, for roasting or baking on the barbecue, when compared to some other WeberŽ charcoal barbecues such as the Original Kettle, or Master-Touch.
The extremely durable porcelain-enamelled bowl and lid have two weather-proof handles with the lid handles having a protective heat shield to protect the hand lifting the lid from the kettle when checking that state of the food on the grill. The lid also contains rust-proof aluminium lid vents which, along with the rust-proof vent at the base of the bowl, provides the proper air flow for perfect barbecuing.
The easy to clean WeberŽ Compact 57cm has a rust-proof aluminium ash catcher sitting just below the bowl between the three legs ready to catch any ash and embers that fall through the base air vent in use, or during cleaning, helping minimise burn or scorch marks to the surface below the barbecue.
Underneath the rust- proof aluminium ash catcher there is located a useful triangular shaped tray ideal for storing food or utensils that need to be accessed rapidly or frequently when the barbecue is in use at the sides of which are two crack-proof all weather wheels helping to move the WeberŽ Compact 57cm to and from that ideal barbecuing spot.
To help get the best out of the WeberŽ Compact 57cm Weber produce a huge range of accessories to help widen and simplify the grilling experience with well designed and simple to use items from chimney starters, covers, utensils, cleaning brushes and briquettes all the way to meat thermometers, burger and slider presses and cookbooks.
