Genesis E-330 637-Square-Inch Grill Liquid Propane Gas
Beautiful Grill Marks, Solid Construction, Easy assembly, high heat, Grease Trap System, Quick Heatup
Lengthy assembly, Price, Lots of parts
Bought the Weber E-330 black with cast iron grates from BUYDIG on sale (rarely see sales on Weber grills so I pounced!). Got the E=330 at basically the price of the 310. This is absolutely the best grill I have ever used. I've used the stainless model with stainless grates and in my opinion the cast iron grates heat up faster, hold heat better, and give you better grill marks. Assembly was a bit time-consuming but parts go together perfectly saving some frustration. Only difficult part was connecting the gas line to the side burner. Really had to force it while holding the collar on the connector. Solid construction once assembled. Instructions are just drawings but fairly easy to follow. Suggest Weber change the instructions to indicate checking all the gas connections before installing the control knobs, control panel cover, wind deflector, and doors. If you follow the instructions and install these parts first you then would have to remove them to check the gas connections! I noted this and checked the connections before installing saving some time and effort of double assembly/disassembly. On first fire up all doubts were removed regarding operation and capacity to get HOT. (Burn off oils etc before using). The instructions did not call for it and don't know if it;s recommended but I oiled the grates and put them in the grill for first heat up to "season" the grates. Heat up was very FAST! Reached 600 degrees in no time. Only complaint the lid handle gets hot too. Use a bbq glove or pot holder. First on the grill were some nice steaks. Beautiful grill marks (heat the grill first to high temp!) then turned down and used indirect heat. Perfectly cooked to medium in no time. Look forward to many years of similar grilled meals to come. A bit pricey for a gas grill in comparison to the cheaper grills out there, but if you can find a deal...go for it....you will not be disappointed!
Yes, I recommend this product
