Things To Love:
The Weber Genesis gas grills are some of the most popular grills in the world. The Genesis line offers a well-built gas grill at an affordable price point. We love that they're great looking grills available in several colors, including a stainless steel finish.
The tried and true Weber Cooking System is great at providing even heat distribution and minimizing flare ups. Within the durable cast aluminum housing, are the triangular-shaped flavorizer bars that sit directly above the burners. They shield the burners by catching drippings and turning them to smoke, adding flavor to your food. Weber pioneered the Flavorizer bar in 1984, and since then they've proven to do their job extremely well, which is why they're still preventing flare-ups on all Weber gas grills today!
The Genesis is powered by 3 stainless steel tube burners, which are backed by a 10 year warranty. The 330 models offer upgrades including a 10,000 BTU Sear Station for that extra high heat when you need it. The 330 also has a 12,000 BTU built-in side burner on the cart which comes in handy if you need to warm up a side dish or a sauce. Additionally, when the side burner's lid is shut, it sits flush against its surface, which adds even more shelving space to the grill cart. The S models offer upgrades including a stainless steel finish, cooking grids and flavorizer bars instead of the porcelain-coated cooking grids and flavorizer bars on the E models.
With over 50 years in business, Weber customer service is as good as it gets. They have a 10 year warranty on the grill body and on the burners. They have reputable service and quickly handle any service or replacement part situations.
Things To Consider:
The Weber Genesis does not score well for high heat due to a low maximum BTU output. The 330 models with a sear station provide more heat, but they're still not as hot as higher BTU grills available in the same class. Additionally, the porcelain-coated grates and flavorizer bars on the E models are not as durable compared to stainless components found on other grills, like the Genesis S models or the Genesis Premium.
