Description: The 2013 Spirit E-210 LP gas grill has been completely re-imagined, and the proof is visible in features throughout the grill. With the control panel moved to the front, two stainless steel tables fold down to allow for maneuverability and easy storage – a boon for grillers with small patios, decks or balconies. While compact, the grill is also roomy enough to cook a 20-pound turkey or roast meats and vegetables at the same time. Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates offer superior heat retention and quick clean up, and the porcelain-enameled shroud will not fade, peel or rust. An Electronic Crossover ignition system lights the two burners with just one touch of the igniter button, and an easy-to-read fuel gauge lets you know where you stand on fuel at all times. Not available in natural gas.This item does NOT include a tank with the grill. The item does not come assembled. It comes in a box for the consumer to assemble.

4 Stars By M. Erb on 2017-05-02 Excellent materials and build quality. Cast iron grates are great for better searing UPDATE: 5/4/2018: I have uploaded a new video to show how the grill has fared over the last year of use. Spoiler Alert - It's awesome. It might take 2DayDeliver a while to replace the old video so check back if the old one is still up.
This is a review of the Weber 46110001 Spirit E210 Liquid Propane Gas Grill.
I purchased my Weber, fully assembled, from a big box Home store. Assembly is not all that difficult for this grill but I was very happy to have been able to purchase it already assembled at no extra cost to me. Big bonus.
I had just returned another 2-burner LP gas grill made by KitchenAid (manufactured by Nexgrill) that turned out to be insufficient for several reasons. The biggest complaint I had about that other grill was that it just could not generate enough BTU's to properly sear meats I was attempting to grill. That plus the fact that the grill was a wire grill rather than a cast iron grate (which retains heat much better than a wire grill) made it a poor choice on my part. So I returned it.
The Weber is overall a much higher quality grill in all regards. The materials used in its construction are superior. The side tables fold down for compact storage, but they do not accidentally detach and fall off the grill like the side tables did on the KitchenAid grill. Although there are plastic hooks along the edge of both trays for hanging grill tools from, they are somewhat inset so unless your tools have a hanging loop rather than just a hole through the handle, you may not be able to utilize the hooks.
The Weber has a front access door for the LP tank. The KitchenAid had no front access to the tank, nor did it have a door covering the tank, You had to spin the grill around and access the tank from the back. The negative aspect of the LP tank storage area is that the hanger for the tank is also an ill-designed scale. It's difficult to hang the tank on the hanger and the scale is difficult to read and of questionable accuracy.
The KitchenAid had a tiny drip tray, this Weber E210 has a large drip tray with an easy to replace aluminum tray liner.
Another thing I don't care for with this Weber is that the igniter only works for the left side burner and then the flame carries over to the right side burner when you turn that one on, once the left side burner has been lit. I would prefer to be able to ignite either burner individually. But that's not a major big deal I guess.
I chose to buy this in the black version rather than the stainless steel version because I feel the black surfaces will be much easier to keep clean than the stainless steel.
In spite of the few deficiencies of this grill the Weber was definitely a better value than the KitchenAid grill. It cost $100 more than the KitchenAid grill, but the quality and end result is worth it.
5 Stars By David Richard on 2017-02-14 Best grill I ever owned. Weber grills are expensive, but they seem to be worth it. Control knobs rotate a full 270 degrees rather than the typical 90 degrees for much better heat control. The fat drip system is well designed to eliminate the mess you usually get with cheaper grills. Comes to grilling temperature very quickly. Best grill I ever owned.
5 Stars By K. Wilson on 2013-05-01 Best. Grill. Ever. Remember in high school when you were dating that girl and you *thought* you were in love? And then you broke up and a few years later someone better came along and you found out what real love really felt like? Remember that grill that you thought you loved? You know, the one that you bought at Walmart for $199 with 8 burners, a built in sink and a helicopter landing pad? Well, you haven't loved a grill until you've owned this one. Simplicity is key, and combined with great build quality, this grill is an absolute WINNER.
Let me just say this: there's a reason why this grill is more than ones from other makers even though it may seemingly have less features and less burners. It is so well made and so easy to put together it's crazy. This thing is a tank. And it's beautiful.
It's like comparing a BMW and Kia. They both have CD players and leather seats - but are they equal? Nope.
A couple of GREAT things about this grill:
1. It is amazingly easy to assemble for a grill. The directions are all pictures, which is kind of annoying, but if you can't read you'll love it. 2. It is packed very well. 3. It is beautiful when assembled. It is a real work of art. 4. It cooks food so darn well - evenly, accurately and with precision. It heats up quickly. 5. The fold down trays on the side are a nice touch. The grill takes up a really small footprint when you need it to.
A couple of NOT so great things about this grill:
1. If you're used to cooking 17 cobs of corn 14 burgers, 12 hot dogs and a two t-bones simultaneously, this is not the grill for you. 2. I don't really like the back of the handle - instead of being solid, it has like some ridges (to add grip I guess?) and it feels, well, not good.
One thing I would also recommend - get the Weber grill cover. It's well worth it. It's also well made and it will keep this puppy shining like the day you bought it.
It's time for a burger. Excuse me.
5 Stars By D. Meador on 2012-11-07 Perfect Grill Marks! Replacing my 9 year old Ducane, and couldn't be happier. She was one of the good ones, actually made in South Carolina, but this Weber has better temperature control and gets hot! Nice when you're grilling in winter!
Assembly was easy, the firebox and gas line assemble came pre-assembled; you just build the cart and attach the finishing components such as the ignitor, knob cover plate, side shelves and door. Took about an hour and 45 min. The instructions are clear and concise. Needed tools are a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a 7/16ths deep dish socket would be useful for the 8 nuts securing the side table brackets.
Deal maker for me was the heavy cast iron grates. These are exactly the same quality as the $699 E-310 Genesis, just smaller, and they leave great grill marks! (Please see picture).
Even though this grill has 2 burners it gets hot! Up to 550 degrees within 10 min on high. Turn down the temp and it dropped to 400 within a couple of minutes.
A nice feature is the propane tank gauge, which is spring mounted and based on full tank weighing 38 lb.'s. I could tell by feel that my tank was getting low when I picked it up, and the gauge confirmed my suspicion by letting me know that I'm down to a fifth of a tank just with a simple glance at the well-marked hanging scale indicator.
This is the 2013 model, with burner knobs moved to the front, providing more useful work space. If needed the side tables collapse, but still feel very secure and substantial when used in the upright position.
I'm very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this to a friend.
5 Stars By Russ on 2017-10-21 Nicest grill I have ever had I have had my grill since May of this year. I needed to down size for just the 2 of us. Although We had grill full of burgers and hot dog on the top shelf when the family came by to celebrate a birthday. I really like the fact that the LP tank hangs. The hanger weighs the tank and shows how much LP gas you have left. Assembly took a while but things fit together right. I bought the special protective cover for it. I really like the drop down side shelves. The cover fits nicely. The new grill takes up less space then my old grill. I was able rearrange my garage allowing the grill to fit beside the overhead door. That allowed me to place my roll away tool box next to it. I had to use the UPS store for my shipping address since the grill exceeded the maximum weight. I called the store to give them a heads up. I didn’t want it shipped back before I could pick it up. There was a $5.00 fee since I did not have mail box there. I also got a text messaged when it was dropped off. I called UPS store to let them know I was coming. They loaned my a hand truck to get it out to my truck.
5 Stars By Rick Buchanan on 2017-09-14 A Great Deal For the Price The Spirit E-210 has been replaced in the Weber gas grill lineup with the Genesis series, which is likely why this model has dropped significantly in price in the past few months. I liked the design of the Spirit model over the Genesis model, which differs mainly in that the Sprit E-210 has a closed design, with a door on the front, enclosing the gas bottle; as opposed to the Genesis II E-210, which has an open design in which the gas bottle goes on the outside. I also liked that the Spirit model is currently $150 cheaper than the Genesis. Assembly was not difficult, and was aided immeasurably by the logical organization of the parts and the clear instructions. Everything fits just so, a tribute to the build quality.
Cooking on the grill is very easy, and although I was worried that two burners would not be enough for indirect cooking I have found that a single burner can keep the temperature in the 350 to 450 degree range, with the hood closed, more than enough heat to cook a whole chicken or a pork or beef roast. I use a probe thermometer to gauge doneness, as I do in my electric oven in my kitchen. With both burners going full bore the hood thermometer registers 600 degrees after a reasonable (10 - 15 minute) warm up period.That temp will likely vary as cold weather hits my southwestern Virginia location.
4 Stars By opiedog on 2016-03-26 Welcome Change in Construction Have used this only once, but am pleased so far. Much sturdier than any other grills I have owned (most recently a Char Broil infrared two burner). Arrived intact (UPS). No missing or damaged parts. Panels and door aligned perfectly. Assembly takes some time but is completely straightforward with clear instructions. Only wish the first thing you need assemble - the casters - weren't buried in the last package in the crate. The casters, by the way, roll smoothly over my walk's pavers. Would give 5 stars but have my doubts about the spring scale letting you know your tank is approaching empty. The scale with my unit tends to stick in whatever position you bump it into even while holding a full tank. Can only get worse as the tank empties.
5 Stars By Cou on 2017-08-31 best bbq grill we have ever owned great bbq grill. instructions were clear and easy to follow. we have used our new Weber several times already - enjoy it and learning how to tweak cooking directions as we go - temp drops whenever lid is lifted. Also, weather will make a difference in recovery time - wind is a big factor. we have started a notebook on each item so we know what adjustments we need to make in heat and time when we use it in the future.
5 Stars By Ann Perch on 2017-06-02 Love this grill! Just received and assembled this grill. Instructions looked intimidating at first, however, they were perfect. Quality and everything fit perfectly. Extremely pleased and I'm a 65 year old woman who had no problem. The initial package was very heavy so just take it apart and it's not too heavy even though I had a lumbar fusion.
5 Stars By soflokid on 2017-05-10 this is my second weber my first weber lasted nearly 15 years. i could have fixed it and kept it, but i decided to go for a new one instead. i was a little put off by the plastic logo on the unit (the last one was metal) but the grill is feature packed and i like the covered tank. best new feature is the battery powered igniter. man, its a dream over the old models which needed replaced yearly. unit was delivered professionally by amazon and i have been using this grill 2+ years now. my only suggestion to a buyer and weber is to clear coat the front panel before using, as the marks for the hi, medium, and low wipe right off, as i discovered. i called weber and they replaced it. i immediately clear coated it about five layers before installing, now i can clean it with simple green all i want. recommended.
