Top Three Weber Q Accessories
When it comes to investing in BBQ accessories for your Weber Q, it can be difficult to know exactly what to go for. Therefore, we thought we would list our top three 2020 BBQ accessories for Weber Q.
BBQ scraper cleaning tool
This is perhaps the most diverse of the Weber BBQ accessories on the market right now. If you are aiming to get plenty of years out of your BBQ, then it is crucial that you maintain its level of cleanliness. Luckily, there are a few cleaning tools out there designed to do just this, with the Weber wire brush taking many plaudits. However, this brush often finds it tough to clean between the gaps of the BBQ and there is also the risk of broken bits of wire ending up in your food. Designed specifically by KAON, BBQ scraper cleaning tool was created with this in mind, boasting five handy uses within one small and affordable scraper. The flat scraper can be used to clean the top of the grill, the deep teeth can remove gunk and grime, the smaller teeth can clean shallow grill sections, the single deep tooth can floss and thoroughly clean grill gaps, and the tool even has a bottle opener! There are two models. A 3 digit model for Weber BBQs with 3 digit model numbers such as 100, 110, 200 and 220. The 4 digit model is for the current and newer models with numbers such as 1000, 1100 and 2000.
Stainless steel side tables
When it comes to cooking up a storm on your Weber Q BBQ, space can be at a premium. Once you factor in your meat, vegetables, tools, drink, and anything else you need within reach, you may find that the standard Weber Q model is not built with this space in mind. However, at KAON, we created sturdy stainless steel side tables to suit the Baby Q and the Weber Q models. These side tables come in pairs and easily attach to either side of your BBQ. They are built to be sturdy and do not flex under normal pressure. They are extremely easy to clean and store away under the hood of the Weber Q. They also won’t melt like the plastic tables if you fold them away before the grill cools down.
Stainless steel convection tray
The Weber Q is excellent for roasting when you use a convection tray and trivet. Unlike the disposable aluminium convection trays, KAON stainless steel convection trays can be re-used saving money and reducing landfill. They come in 3 different sizes to suit all Weber Q BBQs.
At KAON, we have addressed a few issues to make a great BBQ even better. The first products we developed were cleaning tools that fit the grills perfectly, while also doubling as a bottle opener. Our replacement stainless steel side tables are easy to clean, more rigid, and won’t melt if you accidentally fold them in on a hot grill. If you are a regular roaster, our range of reusable stainless steel convection trays are better for the environment and will also save you money. All of our products are made from durable and long-lasting stainless steel and are proudly designed and made in Australia.
