Offering the best of Weber® charcoal barbecuing, the Performer® GBS® 57cm (formerly known as the Weber® Performer® Original GBS®) includes all the features synonymous with Weber®’s higher-spec kettle barbecues but integrated into a sturdy, functional cart with a superb fold-down steel table rather than sat on the more traditional three-legged stand.
Ideal for small outdoor parties or cooking for the family the Weber® Performer® GBS® 57cm is a perfect all-round barbecue suitable for both direct and indirect grilling and suitable for everyone regardless of level of barbecuing ability.
As with all Weber® kettles, the bowl and lid are fully porcelain-enamelled to ensure protection against fire, rust and the elements and are all made to last which is why Weber® confidently offer a 10-year warranty on them.
In addition to a weather-proof handle with protective heat shield the Performer® GBS® 57cm lid also contains an integrated thermometer and a rust-proof aluminium vent to control temperature and air flow for perfect barbecuing.
Set deep into the cart, the bowl of the Performer® GBS® 57cm is fitted with a Tuck-Away lid holder which acts as both a convenient rack to retain the lid as you tend to your food and a handy windbreak. At the base of the bowl Weber® include the advanced stainless steel One-Touch® cleaning system and removable ash catcher to make cleaning and maintenance of the kettle even easier and more effective.
Simply by sliding the lever protruding from the One-Touch® cleaning system three angled blades attached internally to the base of the kettle rotate to ‘sweep’ the ash through the drainage holes into the rust-proof removable ash catching bucket saving time and preventing mess.
Like its big brother, the Weber® Performer® Deluxe Gourmet GBS® 57cm, the Performer® GBS® 57cm offers an impressive 2552cm² cooking area and comes with the more superior Gourmet BBQ System® grate.
Besides a hinged fold-down steel work surface (handy for those with limited storage space) the sturdy cart offers three convenient tool holders at the front and a handy stainless steel wire shelf at the bottom adding extra rigidity to the unit as well as offer good storage space for food, charcoal and accessories.
For ease of portability the Performer® GBS® 57cm has two logoed all-weather wheels under the kettle and two locking castors at the opposite end.
Included with the Performer® GBS® 57cm is a useful charcoal measuring cup which will help keep the amount of briquettes used consistent and in-turn the temperature controlled, meaning perfectly cooked food every time!
The Weber® Performer® GBS® 57cm barbecue is a fantastic unit for everyone, particularly those wanting to take their outdoor cooking beyond burgers and sausages.
