Weber Genesis E-320 Gas Grill Overview
The Weber Genesis E-320 gas grill has an attractive new look while keeping the same Weber quality that has been around for years. The Weber Genesis E-320 has received the Consumer Guide’s “Best Buy Award” when compared to comparable gas grills. This notable gas grill is heavy-duty, featuring three burners and an enclosed cart
A popular new feature on the Weber Genesis E-320 is the separate 12,000 BTU-per-hour side burner, with two stainless steel side shelves. This is a great feature, if you use it in place of your kitchen stove. Not everyone will use it, but it can be a real convenience.
Consumers note that the components work well together to generate an ideal heating area. While preheating the three burners, set on high for five minutes, the Genesis E-320 got all the way up to 450o. Another positive feature owners enjoy is the large cooking area, 637 square inches, and the convenient extra shelving.
In expert reviews, the E-320 scored high in all evaluation categories. On a scale from one to five the Genesis E-320 was rated the following scores in five categories:
- Value compared to price, scored five
- Performance indicating quality, scored five
- Easy to operate, scored four
- Included features, scored four
- Compared overall to similar grills, scored five
Keeping in mind that you can’t please everyone, there is one Amazon.com review that gave the Weber Genesis E-320 a grade of one star. Being fair, it is worth mentioning, this poor soul had the worst luck possible with his popular gas grill. Replacement parts were sent, but he still felt that customer service was not helpful enough.
Reviewers time after time, select the Genesis E-320 as the best grill for all-around use. The reviewers that scored a four regarding the E-320′s grill features, complain that this grill does not have a rotisserie spit, or an attached bottle opener. Hard core fans of the grill argue that these extras are not important to them. The larger number of Genesis E-320 grill owners appreciate the durability, rather than clever attachments that a grilling expert may or may not ever use.
Weber Genesis E-320 consumers appreciate the design of the drip tray that is positioned to drain into a disposable foil tray.
