Default Craigslist performer question

Picking this up on Saturday, talked them down to $40. Doesn't look like it has the gas ignition or charcoal bin, or even a lid therm. Is this an older one, can anyone date it?

Don't think its a performer. Looks like the One touch Platinum I have. No gas or bin but awesome kettle. $40 is a good price. Paid $35.00 for mine. Probaly about 8-10 years old.

You guys are right, I just discovered that with a little more research.. any idea what those went for new? The new platinum's have a different design with a tray on both sides of the grill.

I don't think it matters what they went for new. You struck a deal with them for $40. For that money it looks as though you have a nice rig that will clean up well. Go pick it up and enjoy it.

That would already be sitting in my garage if it were in my neighborhood. Looks like it is in great shape to me.

that's an awesome price, I have the same at home. Those brand new went for $200+. I think the new models are going for about $250.00. Get a cover for it and it will last forever

Yeah that price is great. I picked up one for $45 just the other day.

If you want a cover for it, Amazon has open-box ones for like 15 bucks shipped if you have a Prime account. Just got mine the other day, cover is brand new.

Amazon.com: Weber 7456 Premium Cover, Fits 22-1/2-Inch One-Touch Charcoal Grills: Patio, Lawn & Garden@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41hPJ7XZjVL.@@AMEPARAM@@41hPJ7XZjVL

Just click used, theres like 4 available.

That is a good price for that cover, they threw one in for me though. Threw in an ECB with a cover too that I'll give to my son.

Picked it up today, a few small dents in the lid, and a little discoloration and a small burn mark on the table. All and all a nice cooker, and a nice CL score.

So now I'll pass my 22 OTG down to my son, and he'll pass his 18 OTS that I bought him down to my niece, who's been cooking on a SJG that I bought her.

When I get my performer, he'll get the Platinum, she'll get the OTG.
