Weber® is not just about braaing. They believe in cooking amazing food outdoors and having fun. They aim to bring out an array of delicious flavours, provide the best quality braai and accessories and help you and your family create happy memories for years to come.
Grilling on open fire has been the most widely practised food preparation method for countless centuries. However, through the Weber® way of grilling, it has finally evolved. Weber’s unique system ensures that your food is evenly heated from all sides, resulting in perfectly prepared dishes and limitless potential for great food.
Great food is, after all, what it all boils down to. We live in a time where food has become so much more than mere sustenance. It is a social activity that engages each and every one of our senses – an escape from our busy lifestyles and a chance to just sit back and enjoy something truly spectacular. It is Weber’s sincere believe that their wide range of grills and accessories will equip you to go beyond simply preparing a piece of meat and, instead, create the most beautiful experience.
How the Weber came to be…
When George Stephen, founder of Weber-Stephen Products Co., designed his kettle-shaped barbeque grill in 1951, he sparked a backyard revolution. Tired of complaining about flat, open grills that exposed his food to wind, ashes and charring fire-ups, he decided to put a lid on it — literally.
At the time, George worked at Weber Brothers Metal Works outside Chicago, welding large metal spheres together to make buoys. It was in these very spheres that his idea took shape. He knew a rounded cooking bowl with a lid was the key to success. He added three legs on the bottom, a handle on the top and took the oddity home. George’s “folly” was in such hot demand that he could not make them fast enough. The popular kettle shape quickly became an American icon for food and fun.
