This versatile and efficient grill is very well constructed. It's also a beautifully designed appliance that will last for the years to come. We like that it offers a wide cooking area, so you can cook plenty of food at once.
Weber is a well-renowned company that offers the best gas grills on the consumer market and today, we are going to talk about one of their most efficient and convenient models, the Weber Genesis E-310. This grill is made of high-quality materials, so it’s guaranteed to last a lifetime. However, the main feature that makes it stand out from other comparable products is that it offers a wide cooking surface so you can cook a large variety of foods on the same grill. In addition to that, the unit doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to heat, so this is definitely a positive aspect. If you’re interested in purchasing it, note that the price can range from $899.99 to $1,048.50 and although it may seem like a high price, this is definitely a worthy investment.
If there’s one grill that stands apart from the rest in terms of construction, it’s this one. It is a sturdy and heavy appliance, but this is due to the materials (stainless steel) and heavy duty construction. The cooking grates are made of cast iron and coated with porcelain enamel so that they will last for a really long time. Compared to most round bars on stainless steel grates, the cast-iron grates featured here are much wider. What this means is when cooking meat or vegetables you will manage to get attractive sear marks. Other than that, there’s a less risk of losing smaller pieces of meat or vegetables between the steel grates. Another advantage of owning a grill with cast-iron grates is the fact that the cast-iron grates can retain heat for a longer period of time, making it the best choice for slow cooking. We like that this model includes four swiveling casters so that you can use them to rest your food.
The main thing that you have to keep in mind before investing in this grill is that it has an electronic crossover ignition. What this means is that you have to fire the gas burners electronically by pressing a front mounted push button. This is a great feature because there’s no need to use a lighter or look for matches to fire up the gas burners. As you cook, the amount of fuel you use is constantly monitored by the precision fuel gauge indication, so you can keep track on how much fuel you use during a grilling sessions. It can reach temperatures of up to 500+ degree in only 10-15 minutes. We like that you can choose to cook by using both indirect or direct heat on this grill. The heat distributes beautifully so that there are no cold spots left.
Design and Accessories
Design-wise, it’s a good looking appliance, that is more suitable in a modern environment, although it can complement any type of outdoor design. This model doesn’t come with additional accessories, but if you want you can purchase an accessory that will be very useful to you, such as Rotisserie split so that you can roast different types of meat.
Ease of use
Between a charcoal grill and a gas grill, you can guess which one is easier to use and maintain. It’s definitely the gas grill. However, they can get dirty very quickly as well, so you need to opt for one that is stainless steel. The Genesis E-310 is a great choice because the insides are enamel coated, which means it’s easier to clean the machine with some liquid detergent and a damp cloth when it gets dirty. Other than that, the Genesis E-310 is easy to control, because it doesn’t come with intricate features or settings. Cooking on the Genesis grill is truly enjoyable because the wide surface allows you to cook many different food items at once.
Warranty and support
In terms of customer support, what’s worth mentioning here is that in case you have some questions or you need to download a user manual, you can contact the Weber representatives by phone or e-mail and they will help you with your requests. As for the warranty, it comes with a 10-year warranty for the stainless steel burners, while all the other parts come with a 2-year warranty.
In conclusion, this model is one of the best choices you can make and if you compare it to other models that are more expensive, it can basically do the same job for less money. Besides the fact that it’s very durable and features a modern design, this grill will help you cook meals very easily, offering you a generous grilling surface. According to the customers who tried this model, it can cook food evenly, thus helping you make delicious meals every time. Although you have to pay extra money for all the accessories you may want, it’s still a great option if you want to make sure you buy a product that will last.
