Weber Performer Series Overview
The Performer Premium grill has a slightly different look than the basic Performer. The biggest upgrade from the basic Performer is the added work space. The Premium has an additional 14” of work space, allowing for more food prep space. Both side tables are made out of metal with a synthetic coating. The table on the Premium is not collapsable, as it has the charcoal storage bin beneath it, thus making it larger than the standard. This model also has the removable back-lit LCD timer. Another small upgrade is the two larger wheels being made out of a heavy-duty rubber. However, this particular grill can cause a lot of confusion from a visual standpoint as it looks almost identical to the Deluxe, but it does not have the coveted Touch and Go Ignition system.
