Immerse yourself in the sound of crackling briquettes and the smell of rich smoke. Stay true to the modern version of the kettle that started it all – the Classic Kettle. Invented by Weber’s founder and loved around the world: this is the essence of charcoal barbecuing. The Classic Kettle Charcoal Barbecue is a true barbecue icon – a modern, 57-centimetre version of the world’s first kettle barbecue, invented by George Stephen in 1952. With its classic design and thoughtful features, like a state-of-the-art cleaning system and a handy angled lid hook, you can focus on what really matters – family, friends, and cooking great food. The Gold Standard in Barbecuing. A sleek porcelain-enameled bowl and lid establish the Classic Kettle Charcoal Barbecue as the gold standard in barbecuing – able to withstand years of high heat, while also extremely easy to clean and maintain. Its rust-resistant aluminum damper controls airflow, and a built-in lid thermometer helps you monitor the barbecue’s temperature. Glass-reinforced nylon handles with built-in tool hooks keep your utensils within arm’s reach, and a lid handle with heat shield protects your hand from the flame. The Classic Kettle’s durable all-weather wheels let you move your charcoal barbecue around the patio with ease, and spring-clip, push-pin legs allow for easy assembly – you’ll be up and barbecuing in no time! Practical Add-Ons Easy Clean-up Add a few more burgers and sausages – the Classic Kettle’s 57-centimetre plated steel cooking grate creates an expansive barbecuing area to feed more friends. When it’s time to check your food or add fuel, hang your lid on the hook attached to the barbecue’s bowl to free up your hands. In the bottom of the bowl, a heavy-gauge steel charcoal grate holds loads of hot burning briquettes without warping – its bars are close enough together to keep even diminishing coals from falling through. When you’re finished barbecuing, the aluminized steel One-Touch cleaning system sweeps charcoal ash from your barbecue’s bowl in an instant, and the removable aluminum ash catcher keeps soot contained in one convenient location for quick, hassle-free cleaning.
