Weber Q 220 Design Elements 

While many people have said that the Weber Gas Grill is a bit on the heavy side, what is good about it is the fact that you can tell that it is made of high quality cast iron materials. Once you have tried using cast iron instead of stainless steel wires, you will understand why people choose to grill on the former.

Tools for the Weber Q220 are sold separately but when you decide to buy these, you need not worry about its storage as the gas grill comes with 2 durable tuck away work tables that have built-in tool holders. These can be folded up and stored inside the grill for even more convenience.

The Weber Q220 has a glass reinforced nylon frame as well as a lid made of cast aluminum and a removable catch pan.

Because you probably will leave your gas grill in your backyard, it will be exposed to weather elements such as rain and wind and these can cause rusting. It is a good thing then that the Weber Q220 has a lid handle that is made of weather-resistant materials.
