Decades of awesome
So probably 25 years ago, my lovely wife splurged and bought me a Weber Rapidfire Chimney charcoal lighter. That thing has been lighting our grill non-stop (summer AND winter) ever since. It's always left outside, with no particular care, and it has been flawlessly lighting coals with only 2 sheets of paper for decades. It has finally reached the end of its useful life. I could probably repair it, but honestly, I can afford a new one. So Karen brought one home yesterday to replace it. To my surprise, NOTHING has changed - same gauge of steel, same handle, same grate! Even better, on the label (which has instructions in 22 languages), it says "Made in the USA". Way to go, Weber. Beautifully done. Thrilled to own you. (by the way, we use it with our Webber kettle grill, which is also our second in 33 years of marriage)
Hi Kevin! Thanks for being such a loyal Weber fan! We are thrilled to hear that you have a new chimney starter, we are sure you will enjoy it! Be sure to check out our lighter cubes, they make lighting the chimney starter so much easier: https://store.weber.com/accessories/category/cook/tools/1324. Enjoy and grill on!
