Weber Spirit II E-210 Review
The sleek Weber Spirit II E-210 Is designed to fit into small spaces with ease so it is the perfect gas grill for an apartment or patio. This grill doesn’t sacrifice any features for its small size and has a powerful GS4 grilling system as well as compatibility with igrill thermometers for perfectly cooked meat every time.
The GS4 grilling system is backed by Webber’s nearly 30 years of experience in the grilling industry. The needs of the grilling community have carefully been considered in the design of this grill to give you an ideal experience with easy use and clean up.
The innovative flavorizer bars of the Weber Spirit are angled perfectly to catch drippings. The drippings sizzle and smoke, giving a delicious smoky flavor to your grilled food that will make your friends and family surprised that you used a convenient propane grill. Drippings that are not vaporized into delicious smoke to cook your food are funneled away from the burners into a convenient grease management system.
An effective grease management system reduces the risk of flare-ups while not sacrificing the delicious flavor of smoke. Drippings that are not vaporized are funneled away from the burners into a disposable drip tray that you can easily remove and replace as necessary.
Infiniti ignition makes it easy for you to start this grill every time and ensures that the grill will not go out on you unexpectedly. Consistent gas flow is provided throughout the grill so food is cooked evenly across the grate.
The cooking grates are cast iron that is porcelain enameled so that foods will not stick to the grate for easy cleanup no matter how saucy your ribs. The grate is double-sided for versatility in your grilling. Use the thin great for shrimp and fish that need a more delicate cooking surface and use the thicker grate to give a beautiful sear to burgers and steaks.
The sleek open cart design of the Weber spirit II 2 burner gives you plenty of room for all of your grilling tools and looks great as well. You can easily fold down the side table of this grill to save space and fold it up when you need extra room to work with just by the push of a button.
This is one more feature that makes this an ideal grill for small spaces. Hooks are provided on the side tables as well so that you can keep all your cooking tools within arm’s reach without dirtying your work surfaces. Since work surfaces are limited in smaller spaces, these hooks are a wonderfully useful feature.
A warming rack will keep your food warm or toast your burger buns as the meat grills on the main cooking surface. You can choose between four lid colors for a stylish look that will match your decor so that this grill will not look out of place on your small balcony or patio.
Smaller grills like this one have a tendency to fluctuate heat somewhat more than larger grills, so it is a good idea to purchase the iGrill3 that is compatible with the Weber Spirit so that you can monitor both the internal temperature of the meat you are cooking and the ambient temperature of the grill. This Wireless BBQ Grill thermometer will communicate to you when your food is cooked as well as if temperatures go outside of your set range. Such extensive control over the temperature of your grill and meat will allow you to produce perfect results every time.
Weber Spirit II E-310
The Weber Spirit II E-310 is a great mid-range grill that can provide plenty of food for your friends and family while not costing too much or taking up too much room on your patio. Three burners backed by 30000 BTUs of power give you a lot of control and 424 square inches of primary cooking area provides lots of room for you to grill as much food as you like for an average party.
This grill comes at a slightly increased cost over the E-210 but the additional burner and power may well make it worth it to you. Unless you are working with a very small space which does not have room to fit this larger grill, there is a good chance that the cost will seem worth it for the additional cooking surface.

Weber Spirit II E-310 Review
The Weber Spirit II E-310 packs all of the grilling power and features of the Weber Spirit line with convenient features like Infiniti ignition so you never have to worry about your grill not lighting. Porcelain enameled flavorizer bars give your food a smoky flavor despite this being a gas grill. The convenient grease management system keeps the grill clean and prevents dangerous flare-ups.
Like all of the Weber Spirits, this E-310 is compatible with the iGrill 3. While this grill has a built-in lid thermometer, you are likely to want more information and control over the temperature of your food. The iGrill allows you to accurately monitor the internal temperature of the grill as well as using meat probes to monitor the temperature of your meat.
An open cart design makes it easy for you to access all of your grilling tools and gives this grill a modern look. There are also 6 convenient hooks so that you can store your tools without getting your side table messy. This grill is equipped with porcelain enameled cast iron cooking grates that will resist stuck on messes and make clean up easy.
The Weber E-310 offers a lot of power with 30000 BTUs per hour to its burners. Three burners provide you with a lot of cooking area across 424 square inches. Side tables give you lots of room to store all of your grilling accessories. The left side table can fold down so that it is easier to store this grill out of the way.
This Weber spirit II 3 burner comes at a price of about $100 more than the two burner Weber Spirit, so if you would rather have a slightly more portable grill at a smaller size and reduced-price, the Weber 210 may be a better option for you. If, on the other hand, you have serious grilling to do, the Weber Genesis II E-410 provides one additional burner for a total of four burners but comes at a considerably increased cost over the E-310.
