Huge Grilling Area
For people who use their grills for cooking for larger crowds, a spacious cooking area is definitely a requirement.
The Weber E-330 gas grill offers 507 square inches of primary cooking area and a warming rack of 130 square inches. With this, it gives you the capability to freely and comfortably cook different dishes in one go.
Since the control knobs are now strategically located in the front panel (compared from previous models), the two sides are transformed into additional stainless tables for all your grilling needs. This provides you with much ample space to work around.
Grills Hot And Fast
Equipped with a high powered sear burner (10,000 BTU per hour), you can enjoy faster grilling time but not sacrificing food quality. The sear burner maintains high levels of heat to keep up with whatever you are cooking to ensure that you get the right tenderness, crisp, texture, and flavor.
Genesis E330’s has three burners, controlled separately by individual ignition. With this, you can choose only to light up those burners that you need. Besides, this model also lets you do indirect cooking since its burners now run from front to back, giving you the option to maximize the heat.
Ergonomic And Economical Design
The overall built of this model can really say something on its quality. You just know it can last a really long time. Its frames are welded into place to provide superior strength and stability. The stainless steel burners and side tables are carefully thought out not to rust quickly. The whole machine is supported by four moveable wheels so that you can easily transport it wherever in your house.
The control knobs are strategically placed in front of the unit for smooth operation and monitoring. Also, there is a precision fuel gauge so you can keep track of your fuel level at all times.
- Side burner with 12,000 BTU per hour – this lets you do the additional cooking while grilling
- The enclosed cart that hides your LP tank – this avoids children and animals to pry on your LP tank
- Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates – helps in maintaining heat evenly and sear food magnificently

When I first published the review, the Genesis E330 was available in 3 color options of black, copper, or green.
Later the manufacturer kept only the black option and moved the colors to the EP-330 premium version model (see comparison chapter below).
This Weber grill is available for use with Natural Gas or Liquid Propane.
Which one should you choose?
If you already have natural gas service at your home, get the Natural Gas E330. If not, you can get any of them. Some people say that LP E330 smoker burns hotter, but I am not sure if it is true.

Pros And Cons
Many people noted that Genesis E-330 hits all the right spots. Users can honestly attest to how it can cook and sear food beautifully, and well, deliciously. They like the design of the burners, going all the way back to front, for indirect cooking. Not all grills have such an option. Users also love the additional space as this made it easier and much more comfortable for them to cook.
Many find the assembly to be quick and uncomplicated since most parts came pre-assembled.
Its price is also considered to be reasonable, given all of its features and quality.
There are very few accounts where people actually point out the drawbacks of this device.
Other than the concern of the stainless steel material getting rusty (which can be avoided with proper care and cleaning), there are really no or minimal issues with this product that can break the deal for you.
Accessories for Weber E-330 Grill
I have reviewed the 7 bestselling covers for E330 here – http://isre2005.net/weber-e330-grill-cover/.
Roasting at home is a delightful activity, especially if you are preparing food for the people that you love. However, in the absence of the right set of equipment and tools, this will prove to be very difficult and complicated, leading into an imperfect roast.
Replacing the rotisserie of your Weber E330 grill is a must, especially if you noticed that it is already pretty worn-out and affecting the roasting quality of your barbeque.
Choose a replacement that is perfectly fitted in the model so that it will function effectively, just like your old one.
Sometimes it does not necessarily need to be replaced, just cleaned. Make sure that it is cleaned every time when cooking is done. This will be easier than cleaning after a long time, or when dirt has already piled up.
When using the rotisserie (for example Weber 7519 Rotisserie), it is also essential that you do not go above the weight limit that is recommended. By doing this, you can be assured that the motor and the rotation will work correctly and that you will end up with the right roast.
It is also important to remember that this rotisserie should be cleaned manually. It is small and easy to clean, therefore, will not require much effort and time to have the cleaning done. It is not dishwasher safe, so exert little effort to do the cleaning yourself.
