VAUGHAN, ON, Feb. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Weber-Stephen Canada Co., a subsidiary of Weber-Stephen Products LLC, the world's leading manufacturer of outdoor gas and charcoal grills, announces a major addition to its popular Weber® Q® gas grill line. For the first time, the Weber Q 1200 grills — portable grills with BIG grill performance — will include a variety of vibrant colour options.
According to the recent Weber Canadian GrillWatch™ Survey, 75% of grillers agree that barbecuing is fun so they will be happy to know that the Weber Q 1200 gas grill now comes in six fun colours! Available in Orange, Fuchsia, Green, Purple, Blue, and Black, the Q 1200 will be available at major retail stores beginning February 2015. MSRP: $269.
"This is exciting news for Canadian grillers," says Patricia Larez, Head of Marketing for Weber-Stephen Canada Co. "Canadians are heavy grillers and over 40% grill away from home. The Q 1200 is perfect for use at the beach, camping, anywhere it takes you!"
"Ideal for millennial and empty-nesters, the powerful Q 1200 is also an excellent choice for small patios or balconies and for grilling smaller meals that don't require the space of a full-sized gas grill," added Larez.
FEATURES: The Q 1200 gas grill has 189 square inches of cooking space, porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grates, two folding work tables, electronic ignition, and a built-in thermometer.
VERSATILITY: The Q 1200 grills have a split cooking grate that allows grillers to remove half of the grill grate and replace it with a porcelain-enameled cast iron griddle for cooking foods like scallops, eggs, or smaller vegetables. (Griddles sold separately.)
PORTABILITY: On-the-go grillers will easily be able to transport and set up Q 1200 grills with Weber's Q Portable Cart (MSRP: $89.99) whether they're going to a picnic or a tailgate party. The innovative carts feature a simple mechanism that allows users to set up the stand in a snap, and a leg-locking indicator ensures the cart is locked and ready to support the grill. When not in use, or when the grill is being transported, the cart folds down with the grill attached and can simply be wheeled like a suitcase.
Versatile and portable — and now in six sizzling colours —life is about to get more #qincolour!
