The Weber 7573 premium cover for Weber Spirit 200/300 gas grills is designed to fit the Spirit series of grills. It can also fit the Genesis Silver gas grills. Made of heavy duty material (vinyl), this is a stylish looking cover with a prominent Weber logo. The cover comes in one color – black – and is ideal for protecting your grill from elemental damage, be it wind, rain or snow.
First things first: buying a large grill cover is extremely crucial considering that most grills have to be kept outside in the open where they are exposed to damage from heat, cold, wind and rain. A large grill from a top manufacturer would cost at least $300+ – a costly investment, and one that needs to be protected. A gas grill cover fulfills this role perfectly as it is designed to fit over the grill and protect it from all damage.
The Weber 7573 premium cover for Weber Spirit 200/300 gas grills measures 25.5″ x 53″ x 50″. It has vents that provide access to the grill. A pair of Velcro straps at the bottom makes sure that the cover stays in place even in windy conditions. Its large size means that it can cover the grill completely, from top to the bottom. And since it is designed for a particular grill model, it fits snugly and you never have to worry about the cover coming off.
The cover, made of durable vinyl, is much thicker and stronger than cheap generic $10 covers. It can be said quite confidently that this cover will last you a long time – as long as your grill itself. It weighs around 4 pounds. You can keep your grill outdoors at all times under this cover and it won't suffer any damage. Plus, acting on consumer complaints, Weber has removed the air vent near the handle that led to water getting through in older models.
On the downside, there have been complaints of water seeping in through the cover, especially in rainy conditions. While the cover works perfectly at keeping dust and dirt out, it leaves something to be desired against snow and rain. Additionally, it costs around $35 – much more expensive than a generic cover.
