The brand Weber was born in 1952 from George Stephen’s brilliant intuition: giving style, efficiency, technology and importance to the barbecue, which was only considered a mass of bricks and embers until then. Half apple and half sphere, the original shape of the first Weber barbecue was actually inspired by a buoy Stephen saw floating among the waves. Stephen took the idea and transformed it into a practical barbecue with a funny design, whose round shapes were destined to change the history of grill. The originality of Weber barbecues lies in its cover, which makes meat incredibly tender and tasty: given the success of his grills and barbecues, Stephen decided to found with his wife the brand Weber-Stephen. He then started to travel around America to present his new invention, which was destined to enter the gardens of several Americans and to live their weekend up. With the passing of the years, the brand Weber-Stephen keeps on being updated on new technologies and evolutions in the field of cooking: by joining resistant materials, original design and technologic innovations, Weber remains still today the number one in the field of barbecue.
