Our review of the Weber 741001 Original Kettle 22-Inch Charcoal Grill put this charcoal grill through its paces. Let’s take a look at some of the best features of the Weber 741001 Original Kettle 22-Inch Charcoal Grill…
Cooking Made Manageable:
The Weber 741001 Original Kettle 22-Inch Charcoal Grill holds up to 13 burgers using the Weber burger press. Its dampers allow for users to control the temperature inside the grill easily, and its durable plated steel cooking grate retains heat for an even cook and is easy to clean.
Convenient Grilling Experience
Its One-Touch cleaning system provides hassle-free cleanup of debris and ash, as it drops straight to the rust-resistant ash catcher. The Weber 741001 Original Kettle 22-Inch Charcoal Grill also has an angled hook, where you can hang your lid on the side of the grill rather than placing it on the ground.
Using the adjustable dampers, you can control the temperature of your grill without having to lift the lid, and by closing them, you can completely cut the oxygen flow and extinguish coals. The Weber 741001 Original Kettle 22-Inch Charcoal Grill also boasts superior heat retention thanks to its porcelain-enameled lid and bowl for consistent, even cooking.
Durable and Withstands High Temperatures:
Its beautiful porcelain finish also prevents cracking, rusting, and peeling while withstanding high grilling temperatures. Also equipped with an easy-to-clean and durable plated steel cooking grate, also promotes consistent grilling, and its durable wheels allow you to quickly move your grill around the yard, and won’t be affected by the elements.
While the Weber 741001 Original Kettle 22-Inch Charcoal Grill performs well and reaching our grilling expectations, it does fall flat on a few occasions since it was first used. It encounters issues particularly in the lower half, as seen in the entry port-locks that hold on to the grill — they aren’t aligned, so the locks for the wheels won’t cling onto the metal, which makes it hard to use.
Another problem comes from the fact that it came without an ash collector under the kettle, so the entire grill needs to be carried out to dump the ashes manually after every use. Huge mistakes like this are very costly as buyers will expect this model to make their lives easier, instead of the other way around.
