Assembly: We decided to buy the item without the free assembly due to its size, as it certainly wouldn't fit in the back of a full-sized SUV with the side shelves attached. At nearly 200 lbs, you'll need two strong people to carry it from the car to it's final destination once you're home, but it beats having to rent a truck and hauling the thing fully assembled. The instructions are pictorial and easy to follow - just take your time and be sure not to cross-thread any of the pre-tapped holes. It comes with a cheap wrench, so I recommend busting out your socket set before you even start. Using the right tools will probably save you 20 minutes of assembly time... that's 20 minutes of grill time earned at the end of the day.
Cooking: This thing is a beast. I used to have a high-end Vermont Castings LP grill, which was very well built and worked perfectly. Being that I have been spoiled by already experiencing the benefits of cooking on a top-quality grill, I knew that Weber was the way to go. I'm exceptionally happy by the decision to go with this model. The cast-iron grates are amazing at retaining heat (think sear marks on the second side of your steak), and the unit itself heats to ~700 degrees within 15 minutes on a 60 degree day. I plopped a Lodge cast iron griddle on the top of the grates for searing, which gives you the option to cook delicate fish/seafood (I did tuna steaks and scallops) while you grill your steak/chicken in the standard fashion. The first day of grillin'/chillin' season was a huge success, and I'm already looking forward to many more to come.
Don't waste $300 every two years on one of the other lesser made grills that will disappoint in value and cooking results - this thing will not let you down.

I thought I was being thrifty when I purchased a 5 burner grill for half of what the Weber E330 costs. The grill couldn't reach 500 degrees and the side burner wouldn't ignite so I returned it. A friend of mine has a saying, "it only take a few more dollars to go first class". I decided to go "first class" and get the Weber Genesis E330. HD assembled it for free so I took it home and fired it up. The temp rose to 675 degrees in less than 15 minutes! Very solid construction with even cooking and temp control. It is a great grill that I anticipate will last for a long time. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DavidD Weber E-330 -- Great Grill!
Yes, this product is on the pricey side (Home Depot had the best price that I could find). But this is a Weber. They work extremely well, and they last longer than any other brand that I've ever owned...and, prior to Weber, I owned several. In fact, I still have and use my previous Weber from 14 years ago (see it next to my new E-330 in the attached picture). I like that the E-330 has a lot of grill area over 3 burners (4 if you count the 'sear' burner, too). The heat was controlled better than with other brands, so my cooking is almost precise. I also like the ample side shelves for managing food, seasonings, and sauces; the numerous knobs for hanging utensils and towels; and the generous storage space in the cabinet under the grill. I acquired mine online with the help of an in-store associate, and I assembled it myself with ease. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GR8BBQS MOST FUN GRILLING I HAVE EVER HAD !!!
My Copper E-330 is by far the best outdoor grill I have ever owned. Love the SEAR STATION !!
I also purchased the SMOKER BOX that comes with its own replacement grate so that it fits seamlessly in place
I consider myself a fanatic when it comes to outdoor grilling. I own 3 grills and a smoker that I love to use.
The new Weber Genesis E-330 is so much fun to use. It holds a consistent temp better than any grill I have ever cooked on and is built very solid. The smoker box works well for adding flavor but will not replace a true smoker. We have made CEDAR PLANK SALMON, PIZZA, LOTS OF CHICKEN and most recently a 2 lb RIBEYE for Father's Day. All have turned out perfectly !!
I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO A CHEAP GRILL AGAIN !!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg WELL CONSTRUCTED GOOD QUALITY GRILL
The Genesis E330 grill is a very good quality grill. The $799 price tag is steep but it is very well built and I anticipate the grill to last 10+ years. It took about 2.5' hours to assemble and it is relatively easy to put together once you get going. The ignitor works the first time every time. I had a $199 Char Broil for 10 years and it worked well but this Webber is certainly of higher quality materials and construction. It also has a large cooking surface with 3 burners which is enough to cook a good 6-8 steaks at once. It is my first Webber and so far I am happy with it. I don't plan on buying another grill for many years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Excellent Quality Grill!
The Grill arrived safely tightly packed in a very large box. As others have said it took about 2 hours to assemble, which includes the unpacking and sorting of parts, not bad at all!
I could not be happier with the grill, it looks excellent and allows me to grill like a pro. The sear burner comes in handy to get a good crisp surface to lock in the flavor. The flavorizer bars were doing their job of vaporizing any juices that drip on them which i am sure helped add flavor to the meat. The porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grates left beautiful sear marks on the steak, as you can see in the picture i added.
You can tell quality when you see and feel it, and this grill is all quality. A good quality test is to open the lid and shake it around a little bit and if you hear a lot of shaking and rattling coming from the entire grill, it isn't a Weber! This thing is almost completely silent when given the shake test!
I see a looong delicious future with my new Grill!
And it's made in America!

This is a great grill. it's well-made and works very well. It does take 2 people to put together and there are a lot more pieces than you'd expect on a grill, but it is very solid. It heats up very quickly and cooks quickly as well - and a little faster than I've experienced on other grills.
1. You need a good grill brush and a cover.
2. The gas gauge is tricky to get to work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rmplymouth Best consumer grade grill
This is an awesome grill. Assembly was quick and easy, using quality parts and large bolts. Heats up in less then 5 minutes and cooks very evenly. I have not had one flare up yet. It will be very hard to use someone else's standard grade grill from now on.
