Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IdaJeff Bigger then it seems
Assembly took me 90 minutes... Heated up to 500 degrees in less than 5!!!
We got it for it's small size as it is mainly there to compliment or Green Egg. It has turned out to be as large as you need for a family of 4 as you can easily do 12 burgers!
Heat is consistent, grills sear very well, propane tank gauge is cool and it looks great!
On complaint is the front panel... a little flimsy but not the end of the world. Although if it was solid I'm sure we would complain that it is too heavy.

This is my 1st Weber propane grill. I have had plenty of the Weber charcoal grills. Cooked a beer can chicken with the insert and for the 1st time I didn't get to have any leftovers to make chicken noodle soup. The door, well cover is easy to take on and off. It is a little flimsy but I can see the tank reading without removing it. I can turn my tank on and off from the rear. I'll need to open the door/cover to change out the tank and to clean the drip pans. Even heat and hit 500 degrees pretty quick. I notice the quality when assembling the grill. Took me about an hour to assemble. 15 minutes to unbox and 45 minutes to assemble. Very easy instructions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DCGrandDad This grill is going to be fun to grill on.
Put the grill together with my Grand Girls on Friday and cooked hamburgers on Saturday . Burgers were the best they had ever had.
I like the 3 burners , it allow me to control the temperature better .
Used the Skillet to cook vegetables and chicken , all worked well.
Can't wait for the weekend.......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neelam Great grill with extended capabilities
This new model came as an upgrade to my previously owned 310 and was my first time to assemble a grill all by myself. Following the instructions manual, I had no problems putting it together. Process was straight forward, took about 1 hour, a Phillips screw driver was all I needed to assemble it. All the hardware was labeled and illustrations were clear. However, manual did not guide on how to go about and hang the LP tank on the gauge.
There are couple of steps that might require additional hands to lift heavy parts but you absolutely need no assembly experience for sure.
Overall look and finish of the grill is very stylish and high-end. Since the burner controls are on the front unlike my old E310, now I have more room to utilize on the grill arms which is very handy. Side arms do not fold. The grill shown in E310 advertisement video at Home Depot site with folded arms is in fact E210. Instead of putting a door on the front, Weber used a grill-like front panel made out of some sort of flexible plastic material. To gain interior access, you have to remove the front panel by lifting it which is fine, but to place it back you need to pay attention and make sure that the hooks are sliding into the plastic holders correctly. With door on the front I never had to pay attention to close it but now that convenience is gone. Front 2 wheels are lock capable and rare 2 spin freely.
Grates are of top quality with removable 1 foot diameter center grate so you can use a griddle (included). Having the option to use 6 additional cooking pieces (not included) extends this grill to a whole new level. Weber certainly has done a great job in extending the capability of E310. Temperature and propane gauges are very convenient and now I never have to lift the LP tank to guess how much more to go. LP tank actually hangs on the gauge to measure the remaining LP gas.
It heats up quickly and maintains constant temperature very well. I have grilled steaks, sheesh kabobs, chicken tikkas, hot dogs, chicken leg and thighs and bunch of vegetables and this grill has cooked evenly every time.
Given the brand, construction, quality and extensibility, this grill will last me many years. I am very happy with my Weber grill.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jonny5 Not worth the money
My father gave me money for this grill as a house warming present. I was totally excited about getting a grill that would last for many years, until the maiden voyage. The grill does not cook even at all, my old charbroil grill which has hot/cool spots cooks better. I called customer service and told them the issue, they wanted me to completely break down the grill and put it back together. I had a person from weber put it together, why would i take the darn thing apart. Finally did what they wanted me to do, didnt change a darn thing. Anyways, spend less on a grill and you'll be just as well off. Not worth the price tag

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tommy Great Grill, Terrible Door...
I love everything about the grill, except for the door which you have to use to access the propane tank. Instead of using a hinged door with magnetic clasp they have opted to use a thin, cheap, plastic panel that has to be removed fully. Taking the panel off isn't really much of an issue, but putting it back is a major pain. The first time I put it on I scratched up the paint, which isn't the end of the world, but just seems like incredibly poor design.
The interchangeable grates and other accessories are a nice option, and for me made the lack of a side burner a non-issue.

This grill is really well thought out – hats off to the designers! I love the versatility that the removable center grate gives you. I’ve cooked several meals with a meat and two vegetables using only this grill (the flavor infused in the vegetables on the grill is really excellent!). I was worried at first that having the entire center taken for the griddle would pose a problem for cooking meat at the same time. While it obviously does take up quiet a bit of room, there’s still plenty leftover & this grill cooks so evenly that cooking around the edges is not an issue. You can easily fit 5 or 6 good sized steaks around griddle insert & not worry about some cooking faster than others due to hot spots.
As far as assembly went – it took me about an hour and 15 minutes. The instructions are very straightforward and it only requires basic tools.
As far as features – this grill is loaded! Obviously my favorite feature is the interchangeable center area. I also really enjoy the electronic ignition – SO much better than the old push-button igniters that inevitably took 3 or 4 pushes to light & died completely by the end of the season. This ignition system fires right up every time & when the time comes, replacing the battery is very simple. I also really appreciate the gauge that tells you how full your propane tank is. The thermometer is also a great feature & so far, seems to be very accurate.
As far as using this grill – it’s great! It’s easy to start, and it heats up quickly. The accessories are easy to switch out & the two side arms provide ample work area. This grill is also on wheels with locking casters, so moving it around is simple. The grease tray is also easy to access & replace.
My only complaint is about the black front grate that hides the area where the propane tank is housed. It looks sharp, but instead of having hinges, it hooks into the body of the grill in four places. Because of this, you have to completely remove it in order to access the propane tank (or see the gauge) or anything stored underneath the grill. Putting it back on isn’t horribly tricky, but far more of a pain than simply closing a door. This is by no means a reason not to purchase the grill, but it is something I hope they change on the next model.
Overall, this is a fantastic grill! It’s well-made, well thought out & provides you tons of options in terms of grilling cuisine. I’m so sold on this grill that I’ve already ordered the poultry roasting accessory to expand my grilling options even further & I can’t wait to try it out - highly recommend this grill!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by locodiablo the regular 'non gourmet' version is better
For the same price.. get the regular spirit 310. The regular version comes with the heavy duty front door, not the flimsy panel. I didn't care for the convertable grill surface either. it's just more nooks and cranny's to trap food and greese. I had one on my previous charbroil 'RED' and never used the cast iron saute drop in pan. If need be you can saute with a regular cast iron pan right in top of the regular grate setup. They don't carry the regular spirit e-310 in the stores. you have to buy it online and have it shipped to home or store. The regular version of the e-310 seems to be better built. I assemble mine myself. Directs were clear and easy to understand. Assembly took about an hour.
