I know, it’s an important decision when it comes to where you want to spend 700 dollars on a gas grill. But I assure you that it is definitely worth its money. It’s a very good grill, made of high quality elements and equipped with plenty of interesting technologies.
A very well thought-out structure really gives you plenty of opportunities to cook delicious food. It’s a product that lives up to most users’ expectations in many regards. You should definitely check out all the most important characteristics I listed below.
Weber is famous for manufacturing some of the best gas grills. They are characterized by high quality of workmanship, reliability and high durability. Of course it all depends on the price too, which is certainly adequate to the quality of a grill.
Weber Genesis II E 310 Review Overview
First I’d like to pay attention to the size, gas grills of this size allow to do a whole lot.
First of all, the main cooking area is 513 square inches plus the heated rack with the area of 156 square inches. Both the rack as well as the main cooking area consist of cast iron grates coated with porcelain. It is large enough for a big family or a group of people to prepare whatever food you like.
But if you need a little more space, you should check out Weber Genesis II E-410, it’s a grill from the same series except it has one more burner ( total of 4 ) and 133 more square inches of the main cooking area as well as 42 more square inches of the heated rack ( total of 175 more square inches ).
Secondly, Weber Genesis II E-310 is equipped with three efficient burners made of stainless steel. Such cooking area plus three burners allow to use the very well known indirect method. By properly using the area you can use the indirect method to slowly cook tri-tip, vegetables or a chicken while also cooking a steak or hamburgers directly over the burners at the same time.
If you have no idea what is cooking using the indirect method, I encourage you to read my comprehensive article on the subject. If you have no experience cooking indirectly, you can trust me that once you try food prepared this way you will cook this way much more often.
Heating – one of the most important thing when it comes to gas grills. It is very important for your grill to be good at generating and holding heat. That’s exactly the case when it comes to this grill, Weber Genesis II E 310 has three burners (they generate 37,500 BTU), that produce heat fast and evenly. What is important, the structure is designed well enough for it to be much better at holding high temperatures at lower fuel consumption when compared to other, competitive grills.
A small but not so significant downside is the lack of a side burner, which comes in handy very often when it comes to things like preparing sauces.
- iGrill 3
- GS4 Grilling System ( 10 year warranty )
- Construction – style & quality
- Not a heavy-duty model
Now briefly about the technical aspects of the structure – it is really well-made, on both sides you will find three hooks for accessories. On top of that, you also have two equally well-made side shelves at your disposal that will come in handy during cooking. Weber Genesis II is characterized by its open structure, which means there is no door on the front. The open area offers space for a bigger number of accessories and provides easy access to the grease tray. For many people this might not be the best solution, as an open structure leaves no place for a propane tank which could be hidden behind a door.
About the innovative technology used in this gas grill – What makes Weber grills stand out, especially the Genesis II series, is definitely the advanced and refined technology that raises the grill’s convenience and functionality to a whole new level, so distant from most of competitors.
What makes the Genesis series stand out is the GS4 High Performance Grilling System feature – Allow me to briefly present its characteristics, more details on this series, on the other hand, can be found here.
The grilling system consists of 4 elements
- Infinity Ignition
- High Quality Performance Burners
- Flavorizer Bars System
- Smart Grease Management System
It is worth noting that the entire GS4 system is covered with a 10 year warranty.
iGrill3 – Another interesting innovative feature which is a digital Bluetooth thermometer. You can easily monitor your food away from the grill directly on the display of your phone or tablet. All of that taking place in real time, that way you can monitor the temperature inside the grill and the fuel level. You can also buy 4 temperature probes separately to monitor the temperature inside meat.
In conclusion – If you’re looking for a grill in universal size that is versatile, durable and efficient, get a Weber Genesis II E-310. The price is indeed pretty high for a grill but it is fully adequate to the value and quality you get.
Weber Genesis II E-310 is very easy to clean, it handles heating and maintaining temperature very well. It really is a great grill that is good to have despite its high price.
I especially recommend to check out the cover which will allow you to protect your grill and extend its durability by many years.
