Weber Q 140 Electric Grill
Weber Q 140 Electric Grill
Q 140 is the smallest Weber electric with 189 square inches of cook surface. It has a dark grey cast aluminum body and glass-reinforced nylon frame. Most electrics have limited upper temp ranges, but many owners report Weber's Q electrics put a pretty good sear on a steak. Weber states their electrics reach 500 degrees, but can get hotter depending on ambient temperature. They attribute this to two interior, aluminum heat retention liners that prevent heat from escaping and promote even temps. Additionally, the conductive properties of coated cast iron grates on all Q models help produce good sear marks. 500 degrees is not what we'd call steak temps, but many owners who switched from a different brand of electric to Weber feel the sizzle is far superior.
This small cooker makes travel easy, as long as your destination has electricity, but obviously limits the amount and size of what can be cooked. It may be used as a table top grill or mounted to a fold out stand with two legs, two wheels and tool hooks.
Six foot grounded cords are standard. If you need an extension cord it must be rated no less than that of the appliance. Extension cords must be marked with the letter “W” and with a tag stating, “Suitable for use with outdoor appliance”. Use the shortest length extension cord possible. Do not connect 2 or more extension cords together. The Q 140 should be supplied through a grounded GFI outlet. 15 amp minimum.
