I have no clue on the ages of the webers I have rotated through my posession over the years. But I have never thrown one away. it always got passed along for someone else to use. I have yet to have the 1-touch model come through here, Maybe I'll be lucky enough to get one of those this year.

The most expensive weber kettle that I have ever purchased was for $1.00 at a lions club flea market. Most have been roadside finds or hand-me downs from people that foolishly opted for a gas-grill.

The really old ones had a thick baked-on ceramic coating that would shatter and chip from impacts. The newer ones seem to be painted and rust easier. Did they change coatings on the last 30 years?
