Full Review – Weber Genesis II E-410

The first Weber gas grill was introduced in the mid 1980s. It was a three burner grill and it remained a three burner grill for thirty years. Now, the flagship Weber Gas Grill, the Genesis line is available in two, three, four, and six burners. This model, the Weber Genesis II E-410 is their new flagship grill. While a basic grill without any real extras, it is available in four colors for around $900USD.

This model can produce as much as 48,000 BTUs under 646 square inches of porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates. This is, to be honest, low. While the grill performs well and it capable of getting hot enough for most grilling tasks, it is slower to heat up and simply can’t produce the kind of heat that can be found in many competition grills. On the other hand, it is a Weber and has the longest, most complete warranty in the industry. Even the igniters are guaranteed for 10 years. You don’t find this kind of reliability in any other gas grill anywhere near this price range.

In addition to introducing a wide range of burner configurations, the Genesis II has a completely redesigned burner system. The new burners are top ported (meaning the flame shoots straight up) and the ports are reinforced to keep them consistent and even for a very long time. If anything can be said about this gas grill, it is that it has the highest of reliability. This is, of course, what we expect from Weber, superior engineering and support.

One last word, this gas grill and those other Genesis II grills without all the extras (those with model numbers like 210 verses 240) are made in China. Weber has been slowly moving production overseas to maintain their price points.
