Weber introduces new LIMITED EDITION colours to its charcoal line
VAUGHAN, ON, March 3, 2016 /CNW/ - In its most recent Canadian GrillWatch Survey*, Weber found that 46% of Canadian grill owners award charcoal grills the clear winner over a gas grill when it comes to flavour. Canadians also want more choices with 45% of charcoal grill owners preferring some type of colour such as grey/slate, lime green and blue/teal to add a splash of style and colour to their outdoor grilling experience.
Limited Edition – Only in Canada!
New for 2016! A Limited Edition of the cool colours of Weber's Master-Touch charcoal grills arrive in Canada. In fact, Canada will be the only country of The Americas to carry the four new shades, currently only available in Europe where they are extremely popular. The innovative new colours are: ivory, smoke, spring green and slate and will be available at select retailers. MSRP: $329.00.

"We are really excited to be offering these new, limited edition colours to Canadian grillers," said Patricia Larez, Vice President of Marketing, Weber Canada. "Last year we introduced our popular Weber Q in a variety of six fun colours. Due to the overwhelming success of these new added colours and with charcoal grilling growing as a segment, we decided to act on that trend by offering consumers these limited edition colours on the Master-Touch kettle grills," she added.
The Weber Master-Touch charcoal kettle grill is popular with Canadian grillers and is consistently ranked for its overall design and exceptional features including:
- Rust-resistant dampers that provide proper airflow for perfect grilling and complete heat control
- The exclusive One-Touch cleaning system that makes clean-up hassle free
- A hinged cooking grate, making it easy to add more charcoal as needed
- Unique Gourmet BBQ System cooking grate to create the ultimate grilling experience when using compatible cookware accessories such as a sear grate, griddle, poultry roaster and wok
With all of these features and the introduction of the new colours, Canadian charcoal grillers will have bragging rights on being THE most stylish in all of the Americas.
