2000 is when a lot of the major changes rolled out, most of them to save materials cost and keep the price down. Thats when the silver model went to single handles on the side, and I believe thats when they switched from wood to plastic or nylon handles. The older models were made with a thicker steel (the new ones are still plenty thick) and have a slightly better airflow/heat control, but are a pain in the arse IMO.
