Our 17 yr old weber died and we wanted a new stainless steel one. The only thing we don't like about it is that u have to turn on the ignition for each burner. Home Depot was great. They assembled it for us as we requested

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JR812 100% Satisfied!
Ok, I know the title sounds like one of those surveys you get in the mail from your car dealership wanting you to be 100% satisfied, but that is truthfully how I feel about my Genesis S-310 propane grill. When I received it there were no bent or missing pieces like some have reported. Assembly was very easy. The picture instructions were completely adequate to make the assembly. It did take me about 3 1/2 hours to put it together but I took my time and made sure I thoroughly understood the step I was working on. I have had it about a month now and used it probably a half dozen times and each time I use it I am amazed at how well it grills. My old grill, a Ducane, which Weber bought out incidentally, was a top notch grill in its own right but was about 15 years old and ready to be retired. As well as I liked the Ducane, I must say the Weber has it beat on all counts. My new Weber S-310 heats up very quickly, much faster than my old grill, and I really think the food does taste better on the Weber. Definitely the burgers are better and my wife says she thinks the steaks and chops are better also. There are no flareups, which is a problem I had with the Ducane, and the Weber is much easier to keep clean. Also, it cooks evenly over the whole surface, which is a problem with economy grills. It cooks in about half the time as the old grill so uses much less fuel. Every time I use it I am amazed at how quickly I have the meal ready. Anyone who complains the BTUs are too low on the Genesis has never used one. I agree the price is a little steep but you know the saying you get what you pay for is certainly true in this case. I would think it will last me as long as my old Ducane, 15 yrs., and if so it will more than pay for itself in that time. You would buy 3 or 4 cheap grills in that time period and have as much or more invested and never be happy with any of them. Like the title say, 100% satisfied!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Griller Poor customer service policy
Just purchased the grill. Was pleased with the ease of assembly and solid build. However, after turning on the propane, I could hear a leak and smell the gas escaping from around the regulator. When I moved the tank to take the tension off the valve and supply line, the leak stopped. When I called Weber customer service I was told they would not replace the the valve until I bought and tried a new tank. Seems that other customers are having the same problem and their engineers maintain this is not their problem. This was a new tank 2 years ago that had no problem on my other grill. I would not recommend paying the extra money for a weber with customer policies like this.

Pretty time consuming to put together but it cooks well. Only spall complaint is that it is pretty hard to keep clean compared to my old black Genesis, but that is to be expected with steel I guess.

Box showed up on my driveway when we returned from a walk. I was surprised that no signature was needed for a package costing this much. But, the box was in perfect condition. It must not have been fedex or it would have been pre-opened and destroyed like every big object they have shipped for me. I didn't really want a new grill quite yet, as I was happy with my 16 year old genesis B silver that I own. But, after using this new natural gas unit, both are NG, I am quite happy and impressed with it. Assembly was very easy. I had zero issues with alignment of fasteners or finish or fit or really anything besides the silly pictorial instructions. Fortunately, it's fairly obvious where everything belongs.
To my knowledge, weber is the only company in this business that supports products for decades. I just had a new igniter and toggle switch delivered for my 16 year old grill last week. This ain't gonna happen with any other brand.
This grill get much hotter. I think it's a function of both the tubes and the two layer cover. My first use of grill made me very happy. It is really really nice to use. There are some out there that won't be happy unless they get the top of the line summit. But, this grill is really over the top nice for me. I am impressed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LML2C A few glitches but still a great purchase
I was responsible for the purchase of this grill for my place of employment. I tried to place the order online but had difficulty using the corporate/commercial credit card on the website. I phoned customer service
and they took care of my order. I received the grill within one week. We had it assembled & tested for leaks before we used it (MAKE SURE U TEST FOR LEAKS). The first time we used it, one of the control knobs melted & came off. I called Weber, since the grill has a warranty. They were friendly, fast and efficient. They arranged for the delivery of replacement parts & all is well. The grill is wonderful!!

Assembly was very easy and the directions were straight forward as long as you used the pictorial to clarify any questions. Assembly time was about an hour and a half. I used a light duty battery driven drill driver with nut driver attachments, a couple of screwdrivers and a couple of box open ended wrenches.
I was a little disappointed that beyond the hood, doors and side shelves, there was very little stainless steel in the cabinet of this "stainless steel" grill.
As far as using the grill. As always Weber is the King. It took about 10 minutes for the grill to heat up to 600 Degrees F. I had no trouble marking the steaks and chicken on the stainless steel grates. Clean up was minimal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SD504 Great grill if you're willing to pay the Weber premium
I wanted to first commend my local HD store for making up for a strange lack of quality control with the grill parts included in my purchase. For some reason there were some missing parts associated with the LP tank-hanging aspect of the design. So, instead of dealing with Weber customer service, I asked if my local store could help me. They took the needed parts off the floor model, and out the door I went. Other than that minor hiccup, I've been really happy with the purchase, and certainly want to take good care of such a pricey purchase to ensure it lives a long life.

I have a two burner Weber now that is 8 years old and it still works - just want this new SS one. Folks I live on the salt water and this thing keeps ticking. The electronic ignition still works and I use it at least once a week if not more. I mean really how many grill have you had that the ignition is gone after the first year

Ok...this is the first time I've ever spent this much on a grill..its 3 x what I've ever paid. I knew I wanted stainless, and quality...did some research and picked this one based on reviews and the warranty. Assembly was very easy.. took about 2.5 hours and directions were very good. Manual is also very good. I found no quality problems.. everything fit well, all the hardware was there, box was packaged very well. This grill includes everything you need with the exception of a screwdriver. The best part was my first steak. Preheating to 500 only took 5 minutes. I've never had a grill get so hot and heat so fast. It was impressive to watch. We like our steaks medium rare. Once I put the steak on the grill it starting searing immediately and no flair ups! 4 minutes on each side..2 rotations per side and TaDaaaaaa! It was done. Let it rest for 10 minutes and served. It was a perfect medium rare.. pink inside, easy to cut and very tender. The juices poured out when it was cut. And it was a fairly inexpensive steak. I'm very impressed, lots more to learn but this grill is totally worth the money. If you're thinking about buying this grill..stop thinking and go for it...you won't be sorry.

We have only used this twice, but really like it so far. We had a Weber gas grill before, and it lasted many years. We bought an expensive Kitchenaid Stainless grill about three years ago. The burners have "burned out" twice & the electronic igniter quit working. Piece of junk. We are glad to be back to Weber.

The grill was fairly easy to put together, especially with two people. Very pleased with the performance and I am expecting a long life for this grill without having to replace the grates or burners.

This grill is awesome. I bought this grill for Super Bowl 2015 since we had a bunch of friends coming over. That whole day i didnt have any issues cooking steaks, hambugers, hot dogs, and vegetables. On top of that, the grill is built week and looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaliGirl Superb quality -- worth the price!
We've owned many BBQs over the years, but never realized what a huge difference a high quality BBQ would make! Home Depot assembled our Weber free of charge. It cooks evenly (no hot/cold spots), the electronic ignitor works like a dream (don't have to press repeatedly, then give up and use a match as we have done with past BBQs), and the cooking grates clean up quickly and easily. It's so "user friendly" that we find ourselves BBQing more often than we ever have in the past. We love the Weber! It's more expensive than other BBQs, but it is definitely worth the price!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JasonWJ1 Weber is the gold standard. Easy to put together and cooks great!
There are lots of reviews discussing Weber's superior quality and cooking abilities (my only con was difficulty in cleaning, because I find cleaning stainless steel to be a pain, but it's not a problem that's Weber-specific), so I will focus my review on ease of assembly for the DIY'er.
Do not be intimidated by the pallet and sheer size of the box that is delivered to your house. Simply unload the box in small pieces and carry each piece to your place of set-up. The instructions are straight-forward and easy to follow. It should not take you more than a couple of hours to put this together. A few assembly tips:
(1) While the instructions say that carrying the firebox is a two-man job, it is not too heavy, and can certainly be lifted and carried by one person. To make it easier (and to prevent the firebox lid from coming off when carrying), remove the pins from the rear, and then carry the firebox in two separate pieces.
(2) Be sure to follow the instructions about which washers to use at different steps (the plastic washers are drawn as shaded on the instructions, whereas the metal washers are drawn clear). You do not want to use a plastic washer on an area where a metal washer is called for, as it may melt.
(3) Assembly will go much more quickly if you use a ratchet (or, preferably, a ratcheting screwdriver), rather than the wrench they provide with the materials.

We finally found the grill we were looking for...all stainless steel burners and stainless steel cooking surface.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scb4x4 It is great once I got it together
I have been using Weber gas grilles for 20 odd years, and this is my first stainless. Now that it is in place, it is best one I have used. Getting it together took longer than I expected or wanted. I am not much of a visual person, so with only pictures and no written direction on the assembly instructions I put two pieces on wrong, only to discover it a few steps later, meaning I backtracked and started again each time. So if you are like me, allow about three hours to put this grille together. When you are done, and still like me, you will love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1951 The best grill and the last weber lasted 14 years and was still working.
This grill is the best. Its cooks great and is easy to clean up. Just us a hot wet rag on the grill brush right after grilling and it still looks like new.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by topcat Overall, a good quality product
This product was exactly(almost, more on that later) what I was looking for. I will qualify this rating based on the fact that I have only owned it for a few weeks now. It has lived up to my expectations. I included the 'almost' earlier in my comment merely due to a cosmetic feature- the trim on the door panels is a 'light blue' color, as opposed to it all being stainless steel silver. I will amend this review as necessary, if the product does not continue to meet/live up to its expected performance.
I did check the 'easy to assemble' box, but that is due to the fact that I followed the suggestions of earlier posters- have someone around to assist with the extraction from the box, as well as steps #9 and #10. The assembly was fairly smooth beyond that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JC123 Love it!!
I have grilled out several times now, and am completely satisfied with every aspect of this grill. I was always a proponent of buying a cheap grill and just replacing it every few years. Well, I finally got tired of hauling out the out old rust bucket grill every 2-3 years, and splurged on the Genesis 310. Not only looks good, but after assembling this grill, I see the reason for the higher cost. This grill is made better. It is solid, made from thicker metal, bulkier, and built to last. I am sold on Weber. You do get what you pay for.

This grill makes me the king on my block. I live alone and everyone asked why I need such a big grill for just me. I can cook a whole meal on it! -thats why! Everyone who comes over is like wow- thats a nice grill. I did have issues with dented parts. Contacted Weber and they sent the parts out with the quickness- I asked the mailman whats all these boxes because I didn't order anything. Then I was like WOW that was fast!!!!! I would buy this grill over again if I had to but hopefully it lasts me forever. It seems to be built that way.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kris Nightmarish assembly
We haven't cooked with it yet. It may grill fine. However, the Genesis was a nightmare to assemble. It took my husband and I four hours or more. Many of the manufacturer's holes did not line up perfectly and the unclear directions created a lot of frustration. When you pay nearly a grand for a BBQ, you don't expect this. At a minimum, I would wait to buy for special that includes assembly.
