Great little BBQ!
This is my first barbeque and I'm glad I invested in a Weber. It has been so easy to use, cooks perfectly and is easy to clean (the grill plates fit in my kitchen sink). It is also the prefect size for my 20sqm walled courtyard.
I have grilled veggies, halloumi, chicken skewers, burgers, lamb chops, sausages and steak on it so far and all have been delicious!

Baby Q1200, not really a BBQ, just an oven with warranty promised but not provided
Bought this BBQ a year ago, managed to use it once. Gas jets continually go out without warning, you can tell when you smell the gas (dangerous). Cooks with lid down which stops moisture getting out, but without the heat the steaks just boil, Great if you like boiled meat, but defeats the purpose of being a BBQ. Does not get hot enough with lid up.
I tried to get something done under warranty about the gas jets not staying on and not lighting properly, but after sending several emails and messages on the Weber Warranty Reporting site, I got no...reply, so gave up. Planning to put this in the bin (shiny new, used once and like new) but will not cook and cannot get it repaired under warranty so not anything else I can do. Warning to others, test it first to make sure it works and only buy if you like boiled steak, if it doesn't work or something goes wrong, the Warranty promise is only there to help their sales and is not of actual use. Buyer beware. Update....been a week, supposed mediation in progress, have heard nothing from Weber...nothing new.

Love our baby Weber Q
We love the Weber q. It's quick and easy to fire up and can serve easily a family of 4. This is great for a impromptu steak night or ever cutlets which the kids love.
I though having such a small bbq would not be great but it's actually a space saver and does exactly what we need when we need it
Expensive but great bbq
Great style and quality like our other Weber products that we love. Easy start ignition, very large cooking surface and handy side table fold outs are some of the great features. Bbq is quite heavy. We will be using with our RV. I have to take away a star because this grill is very under-powered.
I feel like I have been bent over.
you pay good money and when u get it, its a grill only then you have to pay an extra $60 for half griddle plate, should be like others Half/half the shop I purchased the griddle from had heaps so must be a common thing

Any breeze it cant get higher than 130 centigrade
I cannot cook a roast or anything at the required temp you can only get low and slow. I have used wind shields and the best I can get is just under 130 centigrade. Rubbish

It's hard to believe the poor reviews for this BBQ. We have owned 3 Baby Weber's over the years and have nothing but the highest praise for them. To ChrisL... to expect to BBQ on any plate without leaving some evidence is ludicrous. Forget the poor reviews, this baby is a cracker.

What a gem
After 8 years reliable service in all weather's it is time for a new one. The burner is gone. You can't beat this gem, buy another is false economy. Terrific!

This thing goes everywhere (when we can :))
Combined with a small 5litre gas bottle this BBQ is a ripper. Beach, camping, in the tinny, I take our Webber everywhere there is an opportunity to have a BBQ.

- Baby Q Standard (Q1000)
The grill plates are disappointing
I followed all the instructions accurately and viewed Weber’s video clip about how to keep the bbq clean using a bowl of hot soapy water and a sponge scourer.
The first time I used the bbq the food was cooked nicely. But the disappointment was the cleaning of the porcelain grill plates. The black pieces mostly came off but it still left some black stains even after giving it a bit of elbow grease. They can’t be removed. I spent the extra $ thinking that I was buying a quality product. I’m not convinced.
I phoned customer service and was told ...

One month old Webber baby q 1200
I had a Webber baby q 1200 as a birthday present just over a month ago 2021
When I first used it no issues
Since then it won’t heat up to the required temperature , I have changed the gas bottle no difference
I contacted the support centre at Webber after emails back and forwards they have decided there is nothing wrong with the bbq
I will never buy another Webber product

great for cooking roast and veges for two, bacon and eggs and also toasts the bread. cooks steaks ,chops, etc to perfection every time. keep out of the wind if possible, every now and then i use a pin to clear fat out of the gas burner holes. i purchased an aftermarket bayonet 2mtr long hose for the caravan.

My Webber doesn’t get hot enough
Even with the lid down it doesn’t get hot enough. Nothing else wrong with it but I have to write thirty words or they won’t except my review. The fact it doesn’t get hot enough is not great
Unreliable & dangerous.
Our weber goes out all the time... several times in a row. Gas continues to flow under lid.. dangerous if we hit the ignition button!

Broke down after minimal use
We bought a baby q to be our second bbq (we also have a charcoal / smoker). We’ve used it occasionally for steaks and sausages when in a hurry. It was ok until the gas hose started leaking. Luckily we heard the hiss and nobody was injured. We’ve only had the bbq for 4 years so I was a bit surprised that it failed. The worst part though was trying to buy a replacement gas hose. I visited a Weber stockist, only to be told I needed the serial number and receipt if I wanted to purchase any parts. When I asked why I was told that Weber wanted to tra...ck me. On the web site there is also no ability to purchase parts or even get a part number. I had to hand over my personal details including my home address and phone number in order to even contact support. Completely disturbed by this and certain I will never buy a Weber again.

Questions & Answers
When is it illegal to use my bayonet on baby Q to van.
Interesting reading all the below questions on When a safety flame out part will be available for the Baby Q. & it’s interesting reading Webbers Responses from 12mths, 9mths, 6mths, 3mths OMG! Lip Service Is Cheap……….
I can’t believe something so important is taking so long & i’m sure once October 2022 comes & goes there will be more Lip Service on why you still haven’t address this Very Important Safety Issue.
Hopefully there are no accidents or deaths while we all wait for the Flame Out Device to be Available.
Obviously it’s time for caravan owners to boycott Weber BBQs
I like my Baby Q and use on the bayonet of my van. It will soon be illegal. Weber says they're working on a retro fit auto cut off, surely Weber must have some idea of when one will be available.
