One touch platinum?
« on: March 13, 2018, 04:09:24 PM »
Local Seller has this listed as a OTP for $150. I'm very interested but don't know the history or pricing for this model.  Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks

They were only made for two or three years beginning in 2009. I had a DE Code (2009). I believe they retailed for around $250 new. They show up on CL here in the Bay Area and sell used for between $60 to $120.   Here is a thread with some discussion on them.

Man I'd love to get my mitts on one of those.
Love the straight back lid.
Great dog and burger grill.

Looks to be in a great shape but $150 seems bit high.  See if you can get the price down.  I absolutely love the lid design. Works very well! I can't think of any other Weber kettle with a 2 tables, center lid vent with no top handle, front lid handle, unique lid bale design, and no bowl handle,  and cast aluminum frame holders. All gen2 and up and any other Weber carts have plastic frame holders.

According to the table in the description on Amazon Weber also made this in 2012 too. So maybe 2009-2012? Also apparently it has SS flip up grates too.

Didn’t get this one last year. Think it sold at full price or close to it based on sellers response to my offer.

This has to be my least favorite design Weber has produced. I suppose it would be good for hot n fast. I think, with the center lid vent it would be hard to effectively do any other style of cooking. I also dont like reaching up over the fire to close the lid.

Not crazy about the design either. Give me the kettle I am used to.
Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.

Trust me, it's not an issue @Scott Zee  - I like using this model. I've made everything from steaks to grilled beets to St Louis ribs on one, and it worked great. It sits at a nice height, (I'm tall) has excellent table space, and wheels around much easier than a standard kettle. I would grab one if it popped up locally. I passed on a NIB for <$100 a few years ago. Never again. IMHO Weber's most underrated kettle.
Every kettle has a destiny.

I'm with @Scott Zee on this. It's ugly!!! But it does work great. Having said that, I would still buy one.

Thanks again for your thoughts. I was able to add the OTP aka " the Saturn" (at least at my house) to the family. The AD code has sat unused since 2010 and has never seen a match. That will change!

“The Saturn”.  I like that moniker as it really does resemble Saturn.
