Anyone know the exact dimensions of the diffuser plate & char-ring? @Irish_canuck would you mind pulling out a tape measure when you have a second? (I’m feeling a bit “crafty.”) :)

Well having issues with shutting it down. Seal between lid and bowl poor continuing to adjust. Seems to be a lot of sideways movement in. Reaching out to weber and weber world store here for solutions

What did you pay for this and how did you get it?
Is the ash bin the same?
The hinge mechanism seems bulky and looks like it wants to chew a finger.... is this the case?
Thanks for sharing

Paid £330. Ash catcher looks the same to my mastertouch

Would have to agree think they could of developed a better hinge design. Seem to have quite a bit of side to side movement. Could be faulty but waiting to hear back from weber

Was it worth the money you paid?

At this point for £330 I expected less quality control issues. Another observation i made tonight after spending hours trying to adjust the hinge to close the air gap... the metal used in the lid is of much lighter gauge than that of my master touch

Well, that's rather obvious. It has the same regular price as 'standard' master touch so they need to compromise on something

Is it possible to completely close the new "P" shaped bottom vents? I like to cook 2 zone with one Weber Char-basket of lit coals. I rotate the cooking grate if I want to switch between sear and indirect. Even with only one basket of coals going sometimes the bottom vent is closed or barely cracked open. I would think completely closed would be necessary to extinguish coals.
