Gold vs Silver

What is the difference between the Weber 22" Gold Vs Silver kettles? Besides $70 I mean.

So, if I have a pit already, there is really no need to go gold? I really just want to grill on it.

Woody, get the one with the ash catcher...worth more $$ in my book too!

Yeah the one touch ash cleaner works till it stops working,then it's hell trying to rip it apart and install a new 3 sweep ash thingy,you'll need plenty of bandages and polysporin.

Let's see,the first set lasted 3 years,then i ordered a replcement,they bent and cracked so i installed #%$%^$^&**%$^in the new set and they went bent after a year.
They do work though,quite nicely.

The removable ash catcher is worth every penny.
