If you are on the market for a quality grill you will have no doubt heard of Weber. They manufacture some of the best grills on the market. A couple of their most popular grills include the E210 and the newer model the E310 but what exactly are the differences and similarities between them.
Here in my overview I do a direct comparison between the 2 grills and their differences and similarities. Then after I will compare their features that they share and what I think about them.
Weber E310 vs E210 – Overview
When it comes to the direct differences between the 2 grills they are actually hard to find because of how similar they really are. Though there are differences worth noting –
The biggest and most important difference is probably that the E310 has 3 burners while the E210 only has 2 burners. Having the 3 burners means there is more area where the heat will be maximized and also more cooking area and space. This is a clear advantage for the 310.
Another main difference between the 2 grills is that the 310 offers more cooking power in terms of BTUs. The E210 offers 26,500 BTU whereas the E310 offers 32,000 BTU. While these BTU numbers aren’t the highest, they both can easily go over 600F so it seems Weber have optimized these grills very well. For the direct comparison between the 2 – what this equates in to real terms is that the E310 will heat up a little faster and have a slightly higher maximum temperature.
There is no doubt that these 2 grills are almost identical in many ways so, let me explain what both of the grills have in terms of identical features.
- Have burner material – stainless steel
- Have a grease pan
- Have a thermometer
- Have a storage rack for utensils/tools
- Have a raised warming/cooking area
- Having a cooking box
- Are colored black
- Have a grill cover
- Have side shelves
As you can see there are a tremendous amount of similarities between the 2 but how well do they function and operate.
Weber E210 vs E310 – Review
There is no doubt – both of these grills offer a brilliant build quality and design, they look amazing particularly in the sun shine. Thanks to their materials they are going to be durable and can be even be left outside in the weather over the winter if you liked. Though as I mentioned above both of the grills have shelves which can be used for storage and preparation etc – these shelves can in fact be lowered which makes for storing it inside more practical. You can also easily move them around thanks to the wheels on the bottom.
The grease pan is also worth mentioning because it works really well unlike a lot of other grills I have used myself. The grease pan is big and can be lined with an aluminum paper which can be replaced as you need to. This makes for cleaning and maintenance more less annoying than it could be.
The bottom line is that both grills do exactly what you would want and need from a grill and both grills are a great choice. I personally would opt for the E210 simply because of the lower price and I wouldn’t need to make use of the larger cooking area but for everyone that may not be the case, so make the best choice for your needs!
