Deep Blue Question
« on: May 30, 2023, 02:13:48 PM »
Alcon -
Iíve been a member for a year or so; this is my first post and at one time I had 9 kettles which is now down to 6.

I recently found a post for a kettle on sale which is a deep blue. I have never seen this color and wanted to ask for input from members on its origin and production?

Iím attaching a pic and was told it comes from ACE Hardware.

Any input is appreciated!

Gringo

Hi Gringo,

The ďDeep Ocean BlueĒ may have been available at ACE in the US but itís also currently sold as a Master-Touch model direct from Weber or from dealers. Itís a really nice color and kettle!

Deep Ocean Blue was sold at my local Lowes a couple years ago and last year at Ace as an OKP at both stores.  Not sure if they still sell them there, but it is a very nice color

I get the impression the Ace blue and Deep Ocean are two different shades.

Now, Iíve never been able to confirm

There is a deep blue color exclusive only to Ace Hardware.

It's basically Deep Ocean Blue with a bit more gray, and a matte finish.  Truthfully doesn't look different than Slate Blue.
