Excellence at Par

Cooking can never get better! The Genesis 6531001 is a grilling stunner. Like already mentioned this grill comes with front mounted control knobs, cooking grates made of cast iron and coated with porcelain and flavorizer bars that are porcelain enamelled. These work in conjunction with each other to not just distribute heat evenly across the grill, but also to hold and retain heat for even grilling. You can now more steak house quality grills at your very own kitchen.

Weber’s Original Gas Grilling System

The Genesis 6531001, is a one of its kind grill. The shroud is strong and locks heat within, and when you are done opens smoothly on its hinges without a squeak or squeal. The burners roar to life at the push of a button and allow you to put together a mouth-watering meal for a large gathering in no time at all.

Weber has spent years in researching and making some of the grills the world has seen. And, this one is no exception. It is easy to assemble, has precision controls to allow you to regulate heat, a cooking surface that evenly distributes heat. The control knobs allow you to step up or bring down the heat for direct or indirect cooking.

Cook box and Shroud

Weber has engineered a sturdy and powerful cook box that houses the main components of the cooking system – burner tubes, grease management system, cooking grates, and flavorizer bars.

The cook box is made of cast aluminium and is durable and highly efficient. It needs minimal care and can withstand high temperatures without cracking or breaking down. The shape of the cook box is also very well thought of and in alliance with the shroud, facilitates better circulation of heat for even cooking whether you are using the grill on direct or indirect heat.

Cooking Grates

Gas grills from Weber have three kinds of cooking grates- Stainless steel, porcelain enamelled stainless steel, and porcelain enamelled cast iron. All these exceptional materials help in retaining heat and searing food to perfection. The enamelled steel grates are very durable and stand the test of time. They are also very easy to clean. The Stainless steel ones are also praise worthy and make beautiful sear marks, retain heat well, and are easy to clean. Porcelain enamelled cast iron grates though last on the list are equally good. They combine the best features of the other two kinds, by offering superior heat retention, and easy maintenance. These grates do not have to be seasoned.

Burner Tubes

Burners on Weber grills are made of high-grade stainless steel that can easily stand up to and withstand small amounts of water that is found in both natural gas and liquid propane. They are made of a single piece of steel and have no welds. They are hence stronger and do not rust or burn through easily.  The burner tubes are protected from spills and grease drippings thanks to the flavorizer bars. And, the tubes are easy to clean too! Just use a stainless steel grill brush and invest a few minutes and the tubes will be good as new.

Each burner has individual controls that allow you to grill your food through direct or indirect heat. The burners are well spaced that allow for the entire cooking area to be heated in a jiffy. The burner valves too have precision control settings that allow you to fine tune heat levels for better grilling.

Flavorizer Bars

Flavorizer bars were no accident! The brain child of Weber, these bars are designed to do more than just lend a smoky flavour to your meat. They are a part of most grills by Weber such as the Spirit, Summit, and Genesis series. They are perfectly angled to catch the drippings that sizzle and smoke and add a smoky flavour to your food. And, any dripping that flow past the flavorizer bar is made to follow the slope of their angle and are gently funnelled away from the grill’s burner tubes and right into the grease management unit. This ensures there are no flare ups within your grill and also keep the burner tubes from clogging.

These bars are made of either stainless steel or porcelain enamel and are hardy, durable and designed to last long. They are easy to care for and can be cleaned without much hassles. All they need is a regular brush down using a Weber stainless steel grill brush and they will give you years of unflaying service.

Grease Management

As mentioned earlier, when the juices drip off the cooking meat, they fall right onto the flavorizer bars. And what does not get vaporized into wonderful smoke, is pushed into the grease management unit. This unit comprises of a catch pan and an angled grease tray. The grease tray sits right under the cook box at a safe distance from the grill’s burner tubes that ensure that the grease does not blow into flames. The grease is made to flow down the angled grease tray and right into the large catch pan. The catch pan can then be emptied and slid back into place. The tray is designed such that it easily slides in and out of the cabinet for quick clean ups. When the pan begins to fill up, all you need to do is remove the disposable drip pan and fling it into the trash. Replace it with a new empty pan. Yes, it is as simple as that! What’s more? The catch pan as well as the grease tray is easy to clean. A scrub-a-dub-a-dub with Weber’s grill brush and they are ready to be used again!
