So it looks like the performer as we know it went up about $20, and they added newer models. I know none of us like to see prices go up but the fact is they do. I applaud weber for catering to more people by offering what people want most at a lower price. I question if there is a market to support all of these models where there just used to be one. I don't know sales numbers or the market research, but I doubt these were created based on a hunch. I already have a performer and and older JJ, but I think a new JJ is in order, and a performer silver for my inlaws house. Those are perfect grills to fill my wants.
