Powerful natural gas grill with stainless-steel burners, even-cooking surface, and precision controls
The Weber Genesis S-330 is a grill with five total burners that can put out a lot of heat for an even-cooking experience. It also has precision controls that allow you to have total control over the food you’re cooking. The S-330 also exists in a liquid propane form (it has a different model number) so if you can’t or do not want to use natural gas, you can get the same great features with liquid propane.
Grease management keeps things clean
Whether you are using propane or natural gas, grease is a reality. If you are cooking any kind of meat, there will be a lot of grease and to keep the grill relatively easy to clean, a quality grill will have a way to deal with it. The Genesis S-330 has a grease chute that drippings will simply slide through into the catch pan, which can hold several cookouts’ worth of grease. To get rid of the grease that builds up, simply throw away the disposable catch pan and wipe the chute down.
Flavorizer bars amps up flavor
The Genesis S-330’s flavorizer bars use much of the food’s natural juiciness and grease to add flavor, so not all of it just goes down into the catch pan. Because of the angle they are built at, the bars catch drippings and create flavorizing smoke that melts into the cooking food.
Lots of space
The Genesis S-330 is designed for serious barbecues and so gives you a lot of space to work with. In addition to the three main burners, the grill has a side burner and a sear station burner, which are not included in other comparable grills. Even with all those burners, you still have prep space to set dishes, tools, and so on.
Control over cooking
When you’re grilling, you want complete control over the food’s end result. With the Genesis, you get separate igniters for each burner as well as infinite control settings so you can tinker with direct and indirect heat until you find the perfect fit. The S-330 also has a handy built-in thermometer on the shield so you can see how hot the grill is without opening it up.
Grills are big purchases and you want the one you choose to last for a long time. The Weber Genesis 6670001 has stainless-steel cooking grates, porcelain-enameled flavorizer bars, and heavy-duty front locking and back swivel casters. The S-330 is built to handle frequent use on a range of temperatures without rusting or falling apart.
The S-330’s main weakness is that when you get it home, it can be tricky to assemble. Any grill will probably take a little while to put together, but the S-330 can take a frustrating amount of time and be confusing. If you are inexperienced with following directions and putting large pieces of cooking equipment together, consider having someone help you and setting aside an afternoon so you aren’t running late to scheduled events.
The Weber Genesis S-330 natural gas grill is designed with frequent use in mind. It is made from strong, long-lasting materials, has useful grease management features in place, and lots of prep space and powerful burners for cooking a feast. If you are serious about grilling and want a grill that will last you for years to come, the S-330 is a strong choice.
