Yes. It also comes with a curved warming rack.
What makes this model different from the 14401001 model? The gourmet non-alcoholic beverages are all I can see. sense. Thank you very much for your prompt reply. ?
The 14401001 model (which is also a nice model) has a few nice improvements. The grill is a little taller, the wheels are bigger, there's a nice warming/cooking rack, the grates are thicker (I don't like the gourmet grate design either), and the hinged lid holder is the best improvement!
What is the length and width of the grill's shipping box? This grill is something I'd like to airship to another country. ?

Selected User Reviews For Weber 14501001 Master-Touch Charcoal Grill, 22-Inch, Black
This grill is simply fantastic! This grill has a special place in my heart
I can use it to both smoke and grill. Setting the bottom and top vents correctly and using hardwood charcoal allowed me to keep the temperature at a perfect 350 degrees while smoking three chicken breasts. It took me about 35 minutes to complete. Use a sharpie to draw a line across the bottom vent. It's a little easier to write half-heartedly and openly. The legs are the only real drawback. This is the only place where they cut corners. There should be no problems if you just move it a little to cook and then back. Overall, I'm very pleased.

This is where the grill is! I had a hard time deciding on a charcoal grill, but Weber was always my first choice
Which one should I get? I have a Weber gas grill that I've been using for a few years, but the lack of charcoal and its distinct flavor was always a concern. I'm not a purist, but I understand why some people refuse to cook with anything other than charcoal. br>br>I'm not sure how many stores I visited to compare these grills, but I looked at the Original Kettle, the Master-built Kettle, and the Master-built Kettle. Touch, Performer, Performer Premium, and Performer Deluxe are the four different types of performers available. I took each one out and examined it for ten minutes, assessing its quality and features. I finally settled on the Master Touch because it has the right mix of features at an affordable price, and it's a fantastic grill with some obvious upgrades that are well worth the extra cash. br>br>Quality materials are used in the grill's packaging. The cardboard and plastic bags were far superior to what I had anticipated, and the grill worked perfectly right out of the box. The grill was simple to put together, but one of the legs proved to be a challenge. The clip you inserted into the post opening before inserting the leg kept sliding out of the way and refusing to engage. I had to spread the clip out slightly to give it more "holding power," but the leg fit perfectly. Weber's engineers have devised a clever method of installing the top handle. The instructions are clear about not overtightening the nut, and you're given a small wrench that slips off the nut when it's just right. It's this kind of meticulous attention to detail that's crucial. br>br>The grill's quality is excellent, and the improvements are noticeable. The handles are all made of better material, and the top adjustable vent has a plastic handle to make changing the temperature easier when the grill is smoking hot. Two grilling tool clips are located on the side handle, but I'm not sure how much I'll use them. The wheel covers are also a nice touch, and this grill has a lot of quality to it. br>br>While the removable aluminum ash catcher isn't necessary for grilling, it does make cleanup much easier. Who likes scooping out ashes? Not me, and a few turns of the lever pushes the ashes into the detachable ash pot for easy, mess-free disposal. This was my first time using an ash catcher, and now that I've done so, I'm not going back. br>br>I was on the fence about the Gourmet BBQ system, but it's the star of the show and a must-have in my opinion; the removable center cooking grate is a nice feature in and of itself for adding charcoal, and my chimney starter almost fits perfectly. This insert allows you to load the charcoal in any way you want without having to remove the entire grate. I ordered the sear grate and griddle, which I used on the grill's first test run. Although the sear grate leaves lovely marks on your meat, I've read other reviews where people have complained about it sliding off. The grate is held in place by four posts, and it did not move on my grill at all. The sear grates are wider than most, making this an excellent addition to the collection. I couldn't use the griddle and the sear grate at the same time, so I used the Weber gas grill to cook the shrimp in a butter sauce. I really like the griddle and can't wait to use it to make some breakfast; I also plan to order the poultry roaster, dutch oven, and possibly the Korean BBQ insert; however, Weber could do a better job of providing information for this system, in my opinion. There are a few inserts that aren't shown on their website, such as the dutch oven and biscuit and waffle maker, but the Gourmet BBQ is a must-have and I'm glad I got it. br>br>The grill also included a Char-Broiler. Cooking baskets for indirect heat. I haven't tried them yet, but they appear to be a useful addition to the charcoal management process. It will keep the charcoal separated, so you won't have to reach in and separate it all the time. I'm looking forward to putting these to good use. br>br>The Performer series is the next step up. The larger cart with locking casters and a side table is a welcome addition, as are the grill tool hooks. But, in my opinion, the table was a little too small, and the extra $100 was not justified by these minor features. The Performer Premium and Deluxe have larger and nicer tables, as well as other features that aren't necessary, and cost $250 and $300, respectively. I couldn't justify spending the extra money, and I believe the Master- Touch is the ideal grill for those who want just the right amount of features. br>br>If I could rate myself, I'd give myself a two-star rating for ordering a non-branded cover. It's nice, but not quite as nice as the Weber covers, and I only paid $5 for it. I'll put off ordering the Weber cover for a few weeks, but eventually I'll do so. Don't be stingy with your money. br>br>Anything other than a Weber just wasn't going to cut it. Look at how many grills are stacked outside the local hardware store. The material isn't quite as nice, and the fit and finish aren't quite as good. Because the good stuff is kept inside the store, you don't see many Weber's outside. I expect this grill to last me a long time because it is made of high-quality materials and workmanship. br>br>Hope this helps! br>br>I couldn't make up my mind about the gourmet BBQ system.

It's the same as Dad's
This was something that my father used to have. A red one, to be precise. His wasn't a Master Touch, though, and I don't believe they were known as such back then. Anyway, when it came time for me to buy a grill, I wanted one that looked exactly like Dad's. I was disappointed that I was unable to obtain a red one. br>br>Three to four times a week, I cook on this grill. It's what I use to grill and smoke. It gives me and my family a lot of pleasure for such a simple device. It's well-made and comes with all of the little extras that make using it a breeze. The ash catcher, as well as the small positioning holes for the lower vent, are two features that I really like. On YouTube, I've seen people use a saw or an awl to mark the same positions. This already has them, so you won't have to risk damaging your new grill just to figure out where the vent is! It also has a fantastic appearance. I'll replace it if it ever wears out. I don't think that will happen for a long time.

I should've gone with the standard model
These "master touch" extras aren't all that useful. I should've just gone ahead and purchased the original. The inside of the bar on which you can rest the lid has a couple of nuts, so it always seems to catch the cooking grate when you drop it. Despite the fact that the coal boxes were made by Webber, they don't quite fit against the sides because the arc circumference isn't quite the same. Finally, the center detachable piece is inconvenient.

Excellent customer service and a nice grill! Today was the day I got my grill
It was easy to put together. When I finished, I had a spare piece. I went over the assembly instructions again to see if there was anything I had overlooked. That was not the case. One of the cooking grate's handles had broken off due to a bad weld. It's not an issue. I registered the grill and contacted customer service, who informed me that a new grate was on its way to me. All I have to do now is wait for a nice day to put it to good use. br>If Comcast was this easy to work with, they'd have a lifelong customer!.

It's more than worthwhile
This grill was purchased to assist me in enjoying our new home's deck. I find an excuse to grill on pretty much every nice day we have. Purchase a charcoal chimney as a favor to yourself. As a kid, I remember having trouble getting charcoal to smolder at a high temperature (due to the cheaper grill). It's much easier to build a chimney with some lighter cubes or paper. The charcoal will be ready to use in 15 minutes. It wasn't difficult to get the temperature up to 500 degrees and grill some delicious burgers or steaks (with some wood chips for added flavor) even in the 30s.

Quality from Weber - It's a fantastic product, and I adore it! The arrival of a large box is always a source of anticipation
With this Weber grill, there's no need to be concerned about the time it will take to assemble what's inside; the instructions were clear, and there's even a step-by-step video available online. The assembly went without a hitch, and all of the parts were in excellent condition and fit together perfectly. br>br>The easy clean ash system makes getting ash out of the grill, well, easy, and there are plenty of optional accessories you can add, such as pizza stones, woks, cast iron grates, and so on. Great grill, and adjusting vents allows you to cook at different temperatures like a pro. Burgers and dogs can be made quickly, pork tenderloins can be cooked on medium heat, or pork butts can be cooked on low and slow for seven hours. Warning- When you buy more meat, seafood, and vegetables to grill, your grocery bill may go up! Also, your neighbors might be envious, so share some of the treats with them. 😉.
