32,000-BTU natural gas grill with power and cool features

The Weber 47510001 Spirit E-310 is a 3-burner grill (with a total 32,000 BTU) with a lot of power and cool features that make grilling easy and fun. If you want a grill that’s sturdy, in a mid-range price, and isn’t hard to maintain or use, the Spirit E-310 is definitely something to consider.

Electronic Crossover ignition system

Starting the grill is extremely easy, even if you’ve never done it before. The Electronic Crossover ignition system provides an electric ignition for each burner, so you don’t have to mess with lighters or turn on more burners than you plan on using. Simply turn a knob and the burners leap to life every time.

Porcelain-enameled flavorizer bars

When the grill is up and running, and you’ve started grilling delicious meats or veggies, the Weber Spirit E-310’s flavorizer bars help enhance the flavor. As juices fall down, the porcelain-enameled flavorizer bars vaporize the drippings into flavorful, aromatic smoke that infuses the food with deliciousness.

Grease management

As for the grease and juice that doesn’t get vaporized, the grill has a grease management system that makes cleaning the grill a breeze. The extra grease runs down a chute into a disposable tray that you empty every few cookouts or so.

Strengths

Easy to clean

The most frustrating part of grill ownership is cleaning it. All that smoke and food residue can really gunk it up. However, the Spirit E-310 is designed to make the cleaning process simple and easy. In addition to the grease management system, the burner tubes are rust-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about rust building up, and then having to spend hours scraping it off.

Holds heat well

Cooking on a grill that can’t hold heat or heats unevenly is torture. Luckily, this grill has features in place to ensure a hot, even grilling experience. The shape of the cookbox and shroud assist in insulating the grill and keeping the heat moving evenly.

Easy to use

If you’re looking for a grill with no frills, just solid performance, this is a good grill for you. It’s easy to start, easy to use, and easy to clean. You won’t have to spend time figuring out a lot of extra features; you can just set it up and start grilling right away. If you’re not an experienced griller, this is a great grill that will last a long time.

Weaknesses

Assembly

Putting this grill together is probably a two-person job. The instructions can also be a bit tricky to follow. They just have pictures, no text, to describe how to piece everything together. Expect to spend a couple hour at least working on the grill. This is pretty typical for grills, so if you’ve put together any other grill before, you won’t be surprised.

Overall

The Weber 47510001 Spirit E-310 is a strong, powerful grill in the mid-range price with cool features like flavorizer bars and a convenient grease management system. If you’re a beginner griller, but want something that will last a long time and offer consistent, even heat for all your grilling needs, the 3-burner Spirit E-310 is a great option.
