Weber Genesis Silver C Gas Grill

Weber Genesis Silver C Gas Grill

Weber-Stephen Products Co.

The Bottom Line

As they say nothing grills like a Weber. This is the lowest priced Weber that has a side burner. The real advantage of the "C" of the other two Genesis Silver Grills is a larger cart with more storage space and work areas. It's really hard to go wrong with a weber and even at a price ow well over $500 this is a great grill. It would be nice if it had a few more BTUs for its 411 square inched of primary cooking area, but superior design helps you get more heat for BTU.

Pros

  • Even grilling with 3 burners and a design to spread the heat
  • Solid construction that is built to last
  • Multiple colors to choose from

Cons

  • Lower than average BTU output
  • You do pay a certain amount for the Weber name
  • Replacement parts can be expensive

Description

  • Three 12,000 BTU Stainless Steel burners
  • 36,000 BTU total from the main burners
  • Solid welded frame gives it a very stable feel that many gas grills lack.
  • 424 square inches of primary cooking area with 611 square inches of total cooking area.
  • Flavorizer bars optimize heat distribution, create smoke and protect burners from drippings.
  • 12,000 BTU side burner on side table with cover
  • Removable side table with fold up work area
  • Two stainless steel doors in an enclosed cart
  • Strong warranty and 24/7 support from Weber
  • Available in propane or natural gas

Guide Review - Weber Genesis Silver C Gas Grill - Discontinued

This grill has been discontinued. It is replaced by the Weber Spirit E-310 Gas Grill.

Weber makes the most recognized, durable, and useful gas grills on the market. The Weber Genesis Silver Series represents a high quality grill for a lower price than Weber's fancier models. This gas grill will get you through most anything you want to grill with very even heating, high temperatures and a large grilling surface.

While a price around $650 might seem excessive, this grill delivers a very solid construction, attractive appearance and great grilling. With a limited lifetime warranty you should be able to keep this grill burning for many years to come. As with any grill you will need to take care of it, but this is one grill you won't end up throwing out in a couple of years. The grill is a combination of cast aluminum, enameled steel and stainless steel.

This unit includes a 12,000 BTU side burner. Now most people don't end up getting much use out of a side burner so think about it before you pay the extra for it. The real advantage of a Weber is the excellent service and support that includes a 24/7 toll free phone line to get your questions answered and to take full advantage of the strong warranty.

I was looking for a good grill after many grills just didn't hold up too expectation. After many years of grilling with my dad I thought it was time to buy a good grill. I researched around and Weber was the grill most people recommended. I just happened to be in Home Depot one day and saw this grill in their closeout area. I purchased it for $249 assembled out the door. What a great buy! It is 6 years old and no trouble at all yet (I don't expect any either with the Weber name). The hardest part was loading and unloading-it is built to last and very heavy. The only problem now is my dad keeps trying to take it home when he comes over for a cookout. I would definately recommend this to any that loves to grill. My friend has went though 3 cheaper grills during the time. So far, he has spent $350 more than me and has to purchase a new one this year. I told him its time for a WEBER! Thanks Weber team for making such a great grill!
