Just ordered a Weber Master-Touch 57cm, GBS, Limited Edition in Red for the princely sum of £209. Alos got a beer can bird roaster and some heat nuts for some longer cooking to be attempted soon!
This redhead is the first to be made and assembled in China, apparently due to whatever process/chemicals that are involved in making them red is too toxic or exspensive to be done in the US. It offends the Yanks terribly that it isn't made in Illinois anymore.
Anyway, there were a fair few at the beginning with bad enamel coverage, chips or just not packaged well and turned up dented. Check it carefully, if there are problems let Weber know - their customer service is outstanding.
