Love it - coming up to 9 years old and going strong
Platinum Summit 6 burner - Today I watched the Webber serviceman replace some parts today (under warranty) and had to get on line to compliment Webber for their after sales service and the quality of the product. After almost 9 years it is as good as new. Yes it is an expensive unit and you could save money by buying el cheapo brands and throwing them out when rusted through. But why? they wont work nearly as well and I am done with the throw out mentality. We use this BBQ at least 2-3 times a week and absolutely love it. I cannot understand m...ost of the criticisms posted on this BBQ and put these down to "operator error". Yes, there are a few tricks to cleaning - principally - do the recommended "pre heat" or "burn off" for 10-15 mins prior to use. I also do this 2-3 times a year and allow to cool before brushing out the entire BBQ firebox. Most grease and charred residues will just brush off. If people have problems, call the distributor in South Australia and see what they can do before having a rant online. l am very impressed with the service and followup of the callout staff. They contacted me as promised, tuned up on time, did the repairs, cleaned up after themselves - what more can you ask for?
Expensive, but great all round BBQ
If you want a top performing bbq with the versatility of an oven and rotisserie, this is hard to beat. After much consideration I felt the Weber summit was probably the best constructed bbq I had seen in Perth but its potential and versatility swayed my purchase. Performance wise it works beautifully with serious heat output from the sear station. Ive cooked many 600+g ribeyes to perfection, so for steaks its the best bbq Ive used. The other really good feature is the rotisserie which cooks chicken to perfection-much better than the oven-al...l guests have raved about the succulence and moisture of the rotisserie chicken. Set up is easy. Overall I bbq looks good, is relatively easy to clean but the stainless steel grill plates require a bit of effort to show up the nice clean steel appearance. Small items such a sliced sausage or baby calamari can fall thru the grill into the waste tray also be careful with such items. The Weber Summit e 670 isn't cheap by Australian standards but it is a brilliant bbq overall. If you want great reliability and performance then this is a good buy and will last many years. Works pretty well for large gatherings especially if the hotplate isn't required.
Awesome best BBQ on market
Arrived well packaged assembly was easy and it swiftly moved into place
Gbs system brilliant as is the built in smoker
Looks great next to my traeger 850 and my Heston hub and complements the Alfa 4 pizza oven my decking is now complete and we cook outdoors as much as possible
BBQ cooks fine - takes some experimenting, has some good features, has some overrated features and overall is pretty good. When you take a close look at how its designed or built, its not really that special. Definitely not the "Rolls Royce of BBQ" that Weber AU claimed. My issue is the price, its simply not 3x better than other BBQ on the market and at $5300 it should be! Accessories are also way too expensive.
I recommend that if you want one, import it directly from the US. After converting it (to AU Gas) you should save about $2000. ...
