MUCH MORE THAN A GRILL
It all began with a passionate barbecue enthusiast named George Stephen, who invented the world's first kettle grill in 1952 – a grill that ended up changing the barbecue culture throughout the world.
He did not do it in order to enrapture the whole world – he simply wanted to find a way to barbecue better steak for his family and friends. And he succeeded! That is now over 60 years ago.
"We are not metal benders – we are in the entertainment business". That brief sentence sums up Weber. For us, a grill is much more than a grill – it is a focal point for unforgettable experiences. This was the philosophy George Stephen founded Weber on... it is the philosophy that has revolutionised the world of barbecuing... and it is the philosophy that still permeates Weber today.
