Weber 1520 Propane Gas Go-Anywhere Grill

Weber’s Go-Anywhere gas grill adds convenience to the fun of camping and tailgating. This compact unit has a surprisingly generous grilling area–large enough to fit four medium steaks. The push-button ignition system makes lighting the fire easier than ever, and the patented heat-distributing Flavorizer bar ensures that your food cooks evenly and efficiently every time. You can lock the lid into place with the pivoting legs and carry this lightweight grill around in one hand. Built-in lid hangers allow you to rest the lid on the side of the grill to create an effective barrier against the wind. The triple-nickel-coated steel grate is easy to clean, and the porcelain-enameled steel lid and cooking box are built to last.

I have to admit, I was dubious to try out the Weber 1520 Propane Gas Go-Anywhere Grill. As the name implies, you can practically “go anywhere” with this portable grill, and the last thing I want is to be stuck in the middle of the beach or a campsite having to serve burnt food to my family. I wanted to be sure that I was getting the right value for my money, and in looking at the price tag, there were certainly other brands that were a lot more fancy and expensive than the Weber. After much prodding from my husband, I decided to give it a try.

The Details

The Weber Go-Anywhere portable grill has a huge area for grilling, and this would be ideal to make sure that you are able to cook several servings at the same time. Although the push-button system was easy and convenient to use, this was not the ultimate selling point for this grill. It was the Flavorizer that really sealed the deal for me! Cooks evenly and efficiently, you do not have to worry about burnt parts on your steak or burgers. And the best part? It locks in the flavor, letting you enjoy meals with your family and guests!

  • The Weber Gas Go-Anywhere propane gas grill comes with an easy-to-use push-button ignition system
  • Comes with porcelain-enameled flavorizer bars
  • Pivoting legs lock the lid in place for add safety
  • This grill offers 160-square-inches of cooking surface on the triple nickel-plated cooking grate
  • The porcelain-enameled coating prevents rust and fading

The Verdict

Quick to heat up and easy to clean, the Weber Go-Anywhere will be one of the best cooking accessories to add to your camping trip. The drip pan helps contain the grilling juices, which you know can be quite a pain to clean up after. All you need to do is heat it up for a couple of minutes and you are sure to get a consistent fire depending on how hot you need the grill to be. I have never really used any other grill after this. A solid grill with excellent quality!

  1. I bought one of these things ten years ago and despite twice replacing it with big, traditional-looking (and very expensive) grills I keep coming back to this one. In fact, when we bought our latest one at a local fireplace/grill store, the owner just couldn’t stop talking about this cheap little grill. He confided to me in a low voice that if I were to lift the lid of his own $2500 home gas barbecue, I’d find this little gem sitting inside because it’s all he uses too.

    Why? It’s not ease of cleaning or durability or any of that stuff (they rust out after a few years sitting on the porch). And you’d better buy a big propane bottle with an adapter hose if you don’t want to those little gas cylinders to suddenly empty out on you mid-meal while you’re cooking for guests… No, the reason I adore this is that it just plain grills better than anything else on the market – and we’ve tried a lot of them.

  2. I’ve owned a Weber Go-Anywhere for a couple of years now and it’s been a regular part of my outdoor cooking. Gets up to temperature quickly and is great for grilling simple stuff like salmon, chicken and sausages. The food doesn’t taste *quite* as good as my mesquite-fired kettle BBQ but the Go-Anywhere also doesn’t take 30 minutes to fire up.

    The piezzo lighter flaked out on my Weber a couple of months after I bought it but it’s pretty easy to light with a match. As another review mentioned, they do rust pretty quickly but they’re really sturdy and basic. It grills as well as it did when I first bought it.

    Strongly recommended for folks looking for a small, no-nonsense (or frills) gas BBQ.
