The Weber Q 1200 is a table-top griller which means that if space is an issue for you but you love to grill, then this is about as compact as it gets before you have to abandon the grilling method all together.
There is no lid latch on this particular model, so make sure that curious hands are warned ahead of time that things are hot under the cover. It is also deceptively heavy, considering its size.
Is it for you?
Perhaps your living quarters are somewhat confined, but you have to enjoy a grilled meal like steak or fish, then this compact little unit will server you very well indeed.
Meet the Weber Q 1200
Not everybody has a big outdoor space that they can call their own, some people live in communal areas, or have a shared communal outdoor space. In these cases, having a compact griller that can be quickly and easily stowed away so as not to offend your fellow tenants is a big plus. The unit is fuelled by propane canisters, and is suitable to cook for a small gathering of people.
What we like
The compact size is the main selling point here, and the unit does not take up much room at all. There are accessories for the Q 1200, such as a stand that allows this little griller to sit on a frame, just like a full sized Weber griller.
The concept works very well, and the non-stick coated grill is very easy to clean after use. The device is easy to start, and in true Weber fashion the griller starts first time, every time. (If your canister isn’t empty)
The side tables deploy from the sides of the Q 1200, making the true utility of this griller apparent immediately. Keeping your meat and vegetables close at hand is a breeze once the side tables have been deployed. Temperature control is also really good, and cooking temperatures are stable and easy to achieve, even in the wind.
What we don’t like
The lid, although really strong, and build with solid materials, is somewhat heavy. There is also no latch on the lid, which is a little disappointing. The aluminium grease trays are also a little difficult to install at first, but once you have the hang of it, then things are really easy. The grease catching pans are also very light, so they tend to fly away in the wind.
The overall weight of this unit is around 30 pounds, so moving this around is not for everyone. The overall grill area is compact, so don’t expect to cook for 100 people with this table top gas griller.
Should you buy it?
This is a griller for people that lack space, or an appropriate area to cook outdoors. It is small enough to take camping or to take along on an RV adventure (for outdoor use). Once you have gotten the hang of installing the grease traps and propane canisters then this is a really pleasant griller to use, day or night. The temperature controls are really good, and the overall quality is excellent. The price, performance and features all come together and deliver a product proposition that makes sense for people without the space to enjoy a full sized Weber.
