The Weber Summit S-420 is a gas grill constructed from a stainless steel cart enclosed with chrome-plated cast aluminum handles, an accent-colored painted steel frame, and a stainless steel shroud. An upgrade from the Weber Spirit and Weber Genesis series, the Summit S-420 features 4 stainless steel burners that burn at 42,000 BTU per hour, plus an input flush-mounted side burner that burns at 12,000 BTU per hour. In addition, the Summit S-420 houses a 650 square inch cooking area including a 538 sq. in. primary cooking area and a 112 sq. in. warming-rack. Unlike its predecessors, the Summit S-420 ditches the Crossover ignition system in favor of a Snap-Jet Individual burner ignition system that lights the entire grill even quicker. It does, however, still maintain a Flavorizer bar that eliminates grease-fueled glare-ups by vaporizing fat and juices as soon as they hit the bars. The Summit S-420 also comes equipped with a Weber Grill-Out handle light, six tool holders, a precision fuel gauge, 2 stainless steel work surfaces, 2 heavy-duty front locking casters, 2 heavy-duty back swivel casters, a 10-foot flexible hose, and even a Weber cookbook. The Weber Summit S-420 retails for $1299.99 and comes with a limited lifetime warranty that provides coverage for the castings and the shroud for up to 25 years.
