Default Opinions on the new Weber One Touch Gold?

I just saw that Weber has made some changes to the 22.5 OTG and I'm considering picking one up and would like some thoughts if anyone has it. The first changes I noticed are:

A new dome thermometer

It has little spots on the side handles to hang utensils

This is what I've found after only a few minutes of web research so I could be wrong.




Here are my thoughts and concerns:

The dome thermometer sounds awesome but are they more accurate than most other built-in grill thermometers?

The little areas on the handles to hang stuff are awesome!

So what are the brethrens thoughts?

Chris

As far as the dome therm, they are what they are. Not sure if they are anymore accurate than the old style. I have the same style on my WSM. I use it as a gauge and my Thermapen to tell me what's going on. The lid holder is just like the Performer and does not come off. Well it does, if you want to remove 3 bolts every time you store it. It's a great grill. if you want a OTG then go for it. You'll be happy.

Edit
Actually I just looked it up and it still has the lid hanger. do you have a pic of one with the other lid holder.

i actually goofed up and was looking at the 26.75 when i saw the tuck away lid holder. the 22.5 still has the lid hook, which i like. i went back and edited my post to correct myself

i actually already have a 22.5 OTG and absolutely love, i wanna be buried with it
