At Weber, we do our best to make a grill for everyone. But we can totally understand that sometimes you would like something to be different.
The problem with that is that any modification to a Weber grill that alters it from its original, factory intended design will void the warranty. The reason for this is that our Research & Development teams have put a ton of time, thought and effort into the design of each Weber model. After the design phase, each Weber model undergoes a rigorous round of testing before being approved for sale. Once a grill has been modified we can’t predict how it is going to function, how well it will hold up over time or if it will even be safe to use.
So while it may be disappointing to learn that it’s not ok to modify your grill it is pretty important to make sure that your grilling experience will be a safe one, with predictable results and to have the benefits of our awesome, best-in-class warranties.
