Coming third on our list is yet another Weber product in the face of the Spirit II E-310 which has advantages and disadvantages compared to the E210 model. Some of the major advantages over the smaller E210 are that it has more cooking surface, one more burner, a bigger BTU output, and that there are some coloring options. On the other hand, the Weber E210 isn’t as expensive and has a smaller footprint which are two things most people are really after these days, especially if they aren’t living in a house with a spacious backyard.
In this review we will check out some of the quirk and features of the Spirit E310, see where are its strong and weak sides, and keep comparing it to its smaller brother in the Weber lineup. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
Features That Make It Stand Out
Once again, the thing that stands out the most about the products coming from Weber is the brand name itself. We can go on describing every little amazing feature on their grills but the truth is that in this company attention to detail is held to a higher standard. What this means is that everything is held to a high level of control and therefore quality can be seen at all corners of this grill.

Cooking With The E310
Being the more expensive version, the E310 has a bigger cooking surface area. This makes it the best grill on our list for parties and for big cookouts, as it will be able to fit multiple things at a time and still handle everything properly.
The primary cooking surface here consists of the whopping 424 inches, while the secondary indirect heat area is 105 inches. This area can serve as a warming rack for any food you don’t want to go cold. This makes up for 529 square inches of a total cooking area which basically is enough to handle any meal you decide to throw at it.
Materials & Construction
Everything here, as in most other Weber products is made out of either stainless steel or porcelain coated cast iron (like the flavorizer bars). The burners, body, side tables and the grease management system are all made from top-notch materials which is what extends the longevity of this grill that much. Basically all the parts that are at a constant contact with food, water, or grease are made sure to withstand it with ease.
Having these materials, this grill is also very easy to clean and maintain, as it will never rust and has a clever system of leading all the grease into a pan at the bottom which you can just take out from time to time and dispose of.
The Warranty & Price
The most amazing feature of this particular model is that you get the 10 year unlimited Weber warranty. To show you how much they trust their own product Weber have given you 10 fully covered years in which they are sure that nothing will happen to their grill, if taken cared for appropriately, of course.
To put this into comparison, most other grills won’t last more than 3-5 years even when properly maintained. This is thanks to the materials used in them and poorly made burners and piping systems. As we already pointed out, everything here is either cast-iron, aluminum, or stainless steel with some sort of coating like porcelain.
The slight downside with this product is the price. Now don’t get us wrong, it is an amazing price considering what you are getting, but having to pay that much is not what everything is planning when they think of getting a new gas grill for their backyard. If you want a cheaper alternative, we suggest going for the Master Cook Classic Grill.
