Guide Review - Weber Spirit E-310
The Spirit E-310 is the heart of this line. Larger and more versatile than the 2-burner versions and without the unnecessary stainless steel body parts of the S-series or the potentially unneeded side burner of the E-320, this is the basic grill that Spirit represents. This 3-burner unit has enough cooking space to accommodate most families, porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates that are heavy enough to create grill marks, and a basic set of Weber extras like a tank gauge to help you not run out of gas.
The big question about this gas grill is whether or not it is worth the price. At around $600USD there are a number of grills that are cheaper. Like those grills, this one is made in China and uses lower grade stainless steel for its burners and other components. I have to answer that I do believe it to be worth the investment provided that it is taken care of and used. When I look through my database of grills, this one does in fact stand out as a good grill.
