Weber is almost synonymous with classic quality grills, and for good reason. The brand has been around since the founders first invented the kettle grill in the 1950s. Since then, the company has kept the iconic bowl-shaped charcoal grill, but has also introduced gas grills, electric grills, wood chip grills and more – not to mention a range of grilling accessories from grill thermometers to briquettes.

To help you find the right Weber grill, we sent popular models to the homes of our professional testers and rated each model for setup, insulation, heat control, size, versatility and overall value. Many steaks, burgers, vegetables and more are grilled to ensure that these Weber grills are truly the best.

Whether you’re in the market for a spacious stationary grill for crowd cooking or a lightweight, portable option for camping or tailgating, here are the best Weber grills.

1.Weber Kettle Grill

This Weber Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill is rated 4.8 out of 5 stars by nearly 10,000 reviews on Amazon. This is a very good rating.

There are many positive comments about this grill. One of them is about the construction, where users say the grill is sturdy and of good quality.

In addition to this, the hassle-free cleaning design is highly appreciated. Many users like the ash catcher, which allows for quick and easy cleanup.

Another highlight of this Weber kettle grill is its huge cooking surface and excellent cooking performance. One user said he grilled 12 burgers and several hot dogs at the same time. Another user said she cooked thick burgers so well that she surprised her dad and brother. She ended up cooking very well by opening or closing the lid and bottom vents to properly control the heat.

A few other tiny features also pleased the user. For example, the shielded lid handle that keeps the user protected from heat; and the hooks for hanging grilling tools.

For assembly work, the reviews are fifty to fifty. Some of them took only a few minutes to assemble, which was easy for them. But others thought the installation instructions could have been better and more detailed,

2.Weber Q1200

Our Weber Q1200 review puts this portable grill to the test to see if it’s truly portable and if it still provides enough power and cooking space despite its small size. You can check out our guide to the best gas grills to see how it compares to others.

The Weber Q1200 aims to show that size doesn’t matter when it comes to gas grills. This portable grill has the style and quality we’ve come to expect from Weber grills, all packed into a small tabletop grill. The grill has a burner, electric ignition (powered by batteries) and two folding side tables. The 192 square meter cooking area is perfect for couples or small families, and the small size of the grill provides outdoor cooking opportunities for tight spaces like apartment balconies, or stored in the trunk of a car for emergencies.

We put the Weber Q1200 through its paces cooking steaks, burgers, vegetables and more, testing its cooking capabilities and observing how easy it is to assemble and clean! We also looked at how portable it is and how easy it is to store.

The Weber Q1200 is a sturdy grill that is worth buying as long as it has enough cooking space to meet your needs. It is quite expensive if you only want it as an “extra grill” to take out and about with you on unusual days, but if you are an RV camper or need a small grill for regular cooking on the balcony, this is a good choice.

3.Weber Master-Touch

Master-Touch builds on the success of Weber’s Original Kettle grill, which features a 10-year warranty on the enamel bowl and lid, a lid-mounted thermometer and the stainless steel One-Touch cleaning system.

The Master-Touch adds a modified removable rust-proof ash trap, two baskets for charcoal, a charcoal measuring cup and an integrated tool holder.

This model is commonly referred to as the Master-Touch GBS. The Gourmet BBQ System grate allows you to remove a section from the center of the unit to add a variety of gourmet accessories such as frying pans, skillets, pizza stones, poultry roasters, dutch ovens and grill grates. This allows you to cook a wide variety of dishes.

The lid has a weatherproof handle with a protective heat shield and a rustproof aluminum vent to control temperature and airflow for the perfect grill. The bowl also features a weatherproof handle and lid holder to keep the hot lid safely to one side or provide the ability to use it as a weatherproof forest.

Wheels make it easy to move the grill with one hand, while the ash canister is easy to remove for quick cleaning.

4.Weber Spirit II E-310

As you would expect from a brand like Weber, the Spirit II E-310 gas grill is really built to a high standard of quality and design. It’s not high-end stuff, but it’s not cheap either, so you get quality without spending a fortune.

The grill surface consists of three enameled cast iron cooking grates. These are supported by burners that put out an impressive 30,000 BTUs per hour when running on a 20-pound liquid propane tank, though not as powerful as the Dyna-Glo 4-Burner gas grill. There are also two side tables, so everything is at your fingertips, much easier than some grills.

Grill space is a key part of any grill purchase decision, and it has 424 square inches of cooking area – slightly less than the Char-Broil Performance 475 4-Burner. That equates to about 12 burgers at a time on the main grill, plus an additional four burgers on the warmer rack section, providing 105 square inches of rack space. So this should work well for most homes and even barbecue parties.

The parts used are made from quality materials, so the grill is backed by a 10-year warranty. So if anything goes wrong, or if it rusts prematurely, then you better go back to Weber to fix it.

Weber touches like the porcelain enamel seasoning sticks are great and designed to catch drips and reduce breakouts. There’s even a grease management system to help simplify cleaning as well.

5.Weber Spirit II E-210

After the great success of his Genesis line, Weber Grills decided to create a new line. This new line takes a lot from the aforementioned Genesis, but emphasizes compactness, practicality and convenience. As a result, it contains grills that are more streamlined and straightforward, without sacrificing power or efficiency.

As the smallest in the line, the Weber Spirit E-210 is more compact than its Genesis counterpart. At this point, I should also mention that it’s also more affordable. However, despite its size, this model features the same professional construction and high-quality materials as all Weber grills.

Equipped with two stainless steel burners, the unit is capable of producing 26,500 BTUs, making it powerful enough to handle small grills without any problems. At the same time, it has a wide temperature range, allowing you to cook at low, medium or high temperatures with equal ease.

Buying Guide

What to Look for When Buying a Weber Grill
Capacity

After deciding which fuel source to use, one of the biggest deciding factors is the size of the grill. Too small and you will spend a lot of time grilling for any backyard party. Too big, and you’ll spend more time heating it than actually cooking it. The best location for a family of four is about 400 square inches.

“Look at the size of your family, because size is always associated with grilling,” says Danielle Bennett, author of Diva Q’s Grilling: 195 Recipes for Cooking with Family, Friends and Fire and the Travel Channel’s Grill Crawl. “If you’re planning a picnic and hosting a large party, you might be looking at 800 or 1,000 square inches [of cooking area capacity].”

Material

Bennett recommends looking for “a heavy-duty grate – the heavier the better, the less it will warp from heat and use.” The best cooking surfaces provide excellent heat transfer, prevent food from sticking, and withstand high temperatures and heavy use. Bennett likes stainless steel grates because of their ability to roll quickly, although they don’t retain heat as well as cast iron grill grates, which have excellent heat retention and produce even cooking temperatures. The downside to cast iron is that it takes some time to reach temperature.

Maintenance

Especially if you are an avid grill enthusiast, you need to give your grill some TLC. Turn the burner up for 15 minutes before grilling to burn off any residue. When your grill reaches these high temperatures, the food residue will turn to ash, which you can brush off with a stainless steel brush.

Cleaning your cooking box is an important step in keeping your grill in top condition. When your grill has cooled completely, carefully remove the grill. Then, using a stainless steel brush, brush any grease and debris from the cooking box into the bottom tray to discard.

The Advantages of Owning a Weber Grill

Although the Weber name is more expensive than some other grill brands, there is a good reason for this. Weber has a reputation for the durability of its grills. The materials Weber uses may raise the overall price of a grill, but it may last longer than a smaller grill, helping to make up the cost difference. The manufacturer’s grills, whether gas or charcoal, also consistently perform well, with excellent heat output and distribution. They also feature easy temperature control.

Weber grills offer a number of features that make them easy to use – from using Bluetooth to monitor the progress of sizzling steaks from the comfort of your living room couch to easy post-grill cleanup with a removable ash collector. Weber grills are also among the more stylish grills, with many of the company’s most popular models available in a variety of colors, including black, stainless steel and green.
