Great Electric, but needs more features

This grill in a sentence is the best electric grill you can buy today, but shows that electric grills do not have all features that are expected in their gas counterparts.

I have had the Q2400 grill for 2 months on my condo balcony, and am largely happy with it. It will get as hot as 625, is very reliable around 350-400, and I am able to regulate the temp within 25 degrees with even heat distribution. The cast iron grill has enough usable space for 2-4 adults, and helps retain the heat. The BTU rating of the electric heating element is not posted, and if compared to the gas version of this grill (the Q2200), I'm sure it comes up short, but Weber has done a good job to keep the heat in - you must cook with the lid closed! The lid is double walled to help keep the heat in, and as a side benefit, you won't have 3rd degree burns if you put your hand on it while the BBQ is hot - awesome! Cleaning is pretty straight forward, the drip tray is great, although it can be a bit fiddly cleaning under the heating element.

As I started with, this is the best electric grill available today, but I do have to compare it to its gas/charcoal counterparts that I would have purchased if my condo would have allowed them, and like all other manufactures, the Weber electric is found wanting in features:
- This grill only has one heating element, there is no way to get two temperature areas for searing/cooking, or meat/veggies.
- There is no thermometer anywhere on this grill, although the gas version does (the Q2200).
- I would expect a bun/warming rack at this price point, and am disappointed it doesn't even look like an available accessory.
- The lid is a bit shallow on this grill, there is just under 7" clearance in the middle, so beer can chicken and ribs may not fit.
- It's frustrating that the gas twin (Q2200) comes with side tables, and the electric version does not. We have to put stuff down too!!!
- In future models, I would like to see Weber incorporate a temperature sensitive thermostat to take advantage of the electric element for better temperature control instead of a High/Medium/Low control that emulates a gas BBQ.

To summarize, I bought this grill as my condo only allows electric BBQs, and this is the best electric BBQ available today. It lives up to the Weber name in build quality, and the cooking performance that it brings to the table. As I don't see electric as a portable grill solution, I wish this grill had more "big BBQ" features to make it a more rounded product as a primary BBQ. This is why I docked points in performance and value.

Great electric grill

I live in an apartment where the Fire Marshals office does not allow gas and charcoal to be used on the balcony. So I had to sell my wonderful Weber Smokey Joe, beautiful green Performer, and boss Q 320. I did keep my Q 120 for when I buy a house as I love the way the Q grills.

Looking into several electrics grills, finding most of them too flimsy, some over priced into thousand dollars or more, I returned to a Weber with the purchase of the Weber Q 140 5 years ago. This unit came with a stainless steel grate and cooked well, but no sear compared to my gas Q's. At that time, there were no cast iron grates for the electric model and only the 140 in size.

Now that Weber has upgraded to 2 sizes of electric Q's in 2014, along with adding the wonderful porcelain coated cast iron grate, I purchased this Q 2400.

Like the old Q 140, it has heat retention liners, but is bigger making it great to place either larger sized food portions or multiple types of food on it.

What a difference the grate makes! The searing ability comes close to using the gas Q, and gives the food a grilled taste as the electric Q gets very hot and smokes the food under the hood. Thanks to the heat retention liners, this Q 2400 get very hot and cooks meats moist!

Expensive? Yes, but very heavy and very well made as compared with several on the market. And made in the USA!

The Q 2400 now comes with a cooking guide and a better written manual as compared with the original electric Q 140 that I purchased 5 years ago. Many accessories work with this grill as well. Only wish it had a built in thermometer and side tables for the price tag. Great buy!

Awesome Grill

I bought this electric Weber BBQ last year, as my condo building does not allow propane gas on the balcony. I did a lot of research and found that this Weber Q 2400 Electric had the best reviews (the small one is good if you don’t BBQ a lot at once). I have and will always recommend this for condo/apartment dwellers that will allow electric grills. It cooks food very, very well; and there is another big advantage… if you like sausages or cook meats with a lot of fat it doesn't flame up when the fat drips down so the food won’t burn. It is easy to clean too. I only wish I had bought this BBQ years ago when I first moved into a condo. Enjoy everyone!

Great electric grill

This is a review on the Weber Q 2400 electric grill

I have used the 2400 electric q grill for a month now, use it about 2 times per week and have been pleased. I am a Weber fan and this is my 5th Weber grill and will compare the ones I have owned.

Kettle charcoal grill - in my opinion, the best grill on the market. You can't beat the flavor from a quality stack of coals. However, this one has limitations like being in apartments or having cooking time limitations making waiting for burning coals a challenge.

Q 100 and 300 series. Both cook very well and evenly. The 100 has a smaller grilling area, and the 300 is perfect size for a family. The Q series is great because the heavy grill plate distributes the heat very well through the entire cooking surface. The 300 is not as portable as the 100.

The 2400 electric is excellent for what it is. It has the same heavy grilling surface as the other q models

Pros of the 2400 –
- Electric burners are clean and it simply can't get easier or more convenient.
- It has Weber’s quality in the product.
- Heats nicely and can put a nice sear on meat. I read a few people criticize the grill for lack of making a good sear – I have not noticed that as a problem.
- Has a nice flavor, better than expected. Most of the grilling flavor comes from the smoke from the meat juices, and this grill, like all the other Q’s, keeps the smoke contained to flavor the meat.
- Easier to clean than the 100\300. It has aluminum liners that can come out of the shell that are easier to clean than the bare shell.

Cons
- Expensive
- It doesn’t seem cook as well at low settings as the gas grills. I like to grill salmon at a low temp and it didn’t cook quite as well as the gas grill. I think this is due to the burners turning off and on versus a very low constant flame. I think there may be a learning curve for this, as it was based on one experience.
- Cooking in between the metal grates on the grill plate is not quite as crisp as the gas. It does a good job, but I think the constant adjustable gas heat cooks in between a little better.

My over all opinion is if you can do charcoal, the kettle is hard to beat. If charcoal is not an option then I would suggest the Q gas grill. My family lives in a rural area where getting a propane tank filled is a bit of a pain, so we went electric. The flavor with the gas is a little better, but it is not a huge difference. You can still get the great grill flavor with the electric grill. It also did a great job on kebab with both meats and veggies. If you like Weber’s and need to go electric the good news is you can still get a great piece of meat off this grill, and I would highly recommend it this case.
