Back in 1985, Weber introduced the Genesis gas grill which revolutionized the gas grill industry and the gas grill. For the past 30 years, the Genesis gas grill has become a name synonymous with quality, longevity, performance, innovation, and trust. Now, we’ve taken those 30 years of experience and have developed something even better. Welcome, to Genesis II.
The Weber Genesis II line includes 8 unique models across two style platforms. Each platform now comes in 4 different sizes ranging from a 2-burner to a 6-burner grill, matching the perfect grill to every life stage and every life style. There are more choices, more options, exciting innovation, extended warranties, and so much more, proving once again, Weber is for life!
As beautiful as these new grills are from the outside, it’s what’s in the inside that’s even better. We call it the engine behind the performance. We call it GS4. All Genesis II grills feature our new GS4 High Performance Grilling System. They are the 4 key components that make up the grilling system of the Genesis II grill. They are:
- Infinity Ignition
- High Performance Burners
- Flavorizer Bars
- Grease Management System
Let me explain a little more about each one:
Our new Infinity electronic ignition system is ensured to ignite every time. With improved durability and a generous warranty, rest assured you’ll be up and grilling the first time, every time.
High Performance Burners
These new high-tech burners have a unique tapered shape to ensure a consistent and constant gas flow from front to back, providing even heat distribution across the entire cooking surface.
Our Flavorizer bars help reduce flare-ups, improve heat distribution, and enhance barbecue flavor. The new Flavorizer bars feature a new design so consumers can easily see the flame.
Grease Management System
A new centrally located design helps funnel away grease that is not vaporized by the Flavorizer bars into an easy-to-remove drip tray that allows for faster, easier cleaning.
The GS4 High Performance Grilling System also comes with an enhanced 10-year warranty on all of the key components.
The Genesis II line features a sleek, open cart design with a bottom storage shelf. We’ve moved the tank to the outside making it easier to remove and install. It comes with standard porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grates, a Tuck-away warming rack and all models are iGrill 3 Ready. The iGrill 3 Bluetooth Thermometer can be installed right into the side table of the Genesis II, making it easy to monitor cooking time and temperatures, sending alerts straight to your mobile device! It can even let you know how much fuel there is in your tank! (Sold separately).
The Genesis II 4-burner model comes in 4 color options: Black, Copper, Smoke and Crimson
The Genesis II LX line features additional options including a sleek cabinet design, stainless steel cooking grates, lighted control knobs, a handle light, a new High+ heat setting that allows all burners to turn up to the highest setting for an added boost of heat when you need it the most, a newly designed side burner, a turn-to-ignite ignition system that works just like a home stove, and a Tuck-Away warming rack that is designed specifically to accommodate the Weber Elevations Tiered Cooking System. When an iGrill 3 Bluetooth Thermometer is installed into a Genesis II LX, not only can it perform all of the functions listed above, but it can also control the lighted control knobs from your mobile device!
We are so excited to launch Genesis II. Please take a few moments to explore the entire line up and all that it has to offer. There is so much more to love about these grills, and we are confident that there is a Genesis II that was made for you!!
