The E310 stands out both in design, quality, and performance compared to other 3 burner grills on the market. The weber come at a higher price tag, but the term “you get what you pay for” is an accurate statement in this scenario.
Now, let’s take a look at how the Weber E310 performed in our tests and what led us to choose it as our #1 grill.
The first feature that impressed us was the enormous cooking space. It includes a total of 513 square inches of cooking space which is perfect for larger families. The Space consists of a warming rack and two stainless steel working plates that allow you to cook a variety of foods at the same time.
To get the optimal heat distribution and shortest heating time possible, weber has packet this grill with power. Beneath the grill surface, you will find three burners producing a total of 37 500 BTUs that will ensure that your grill gets heated quickly and efficiently.

As always you get the flavorizer bar included with your weber grill. The flavorizer bar injects the juices back into your food resulting in a tastier and juicier meal. We used the Char-griller for the past few weeks in the context of this article and we really missed the benefits and flavor the Weber E310 gave us.
Still, if this is a pricier grill we think that it’s worth every single penny. Weber has only used high-quality materials such as porcelain and stainless steel. Combining this with their flavorizer bar and a one-click ignition system you have a complete grill that is a joy to use.
If you are looking to use the grill frequently and want the best you can get then this is our top choice.
