Hi
We'version owned our Genesis 3 burner Weber Gas grill with cast iron grates for 17 years (since 2000) and we absolutely love it.We purchased a small aftermarket cast iron wood chips flower and smoke box. This unit is wonderfully designed and so easy to clean,with the pull out tray that funnels down in the center to a grease catcher. We also love the indicator for propane left in tank.Very easy two use in indirect mode. We use our grill quite a bit and the igniter and burners are original.
Thank You for a really great product

I've had Weber Q and Spirit units. Excellent and simply the best for sure. However, I'm shocked that the videos don't include how to prevent rusting of the grates.
Many promote the use of grape seed oil to infiltrate microperforations as the metal expands. I've had my Spirit for 2 years and I need new grates already because of rust/cracking.

Hopefully the oil trick works unless there are better ways to prevent rusting?

Hi Mark! We’re glad to hear that you’ve been loving your Q and Spirit grills! We don’t have any information about using grape seed oil on our cooking grates, and we generally advise against applying oil to our grates because it tends to burn off. Our instructions for keeping the grates from developing corrosion are to keep them as clean as you can. We have a short video about cleaning grates here: http://www.weber.com/weber-nation/blog/cleaning-your-stainless-steel-grates. It was made for stainless steel grates, but the exact same procedures are used for our porcelain enameled grates. We also make a cooking grate cleaner that helps keep them in the best shape as possible, and you can find it here: https://store.weber.com/accessories/category/clean/1592. Let us know if you ever need more help and grill on! - Heather

I've owned my Weber Silver for 12 years now and its still in great shape except for the grates.I asked my wife for new stainless steel grates for it for Christmas. Well to my surprise she bought me a new Weber Genesis stainless 330 grill instead. But little did she know that I had already ordered grates for my ole faithful. So now I have two great grills along with the WSM smoker. So I'm in grillers heaven.

I am on my second Weber Gas Grill, it's a Sprit E-310. It's now almost 8 years old and still working. However recently I noticed a flame rising above the grill's cooking surface and discovered the rear burner is rusting out. I contacted Weber and they immediately fed ex a new burner under their 10 year warranty. This is why I will only own a Weber grill! Whether you own a simple 3 burner or a expensive grill, Weber makes a superior product and their warranty is great!
Thank you Weber!

Three questions.

I have a Weber 2-burner with porcelain covered cast iron grates. I watched the video - I talked with two different people today at Weber Customer Service - they did a good job of reading what was on their screen - but I'm still not understanding a few things.

Why I need to oil (vegetable oil) the porcelain covered cast iron grates with my propane gas grill. I understand that I'd need to do that with raw cast iron grates (like with a cast iron pan), and I guess with the stainless steel grates the oil works as a rust preventative - but why do I need to oil the porcelain covered cast iron grates??? The oil doesn't penetrate or adhere to the porcelain, as it would with raw cast iron.

Also, I typically turn on my grill and start cooking when the grill reaches cooking temperature - but one of the folks I talked with today talked about a 20-30 minute "warm up" period before cooking - I might as well go to charcoal.

Finally, as far as cleaning the grates after use - aside from general cleanliness issues, what's the proper type of brush \ cleaning pad to use on the porcelain covered grates? Won;t any residue on the grates simply burn off the next time I use the grill and it gets up to cooking temperature?

Thanks!

Hi J.C.! I'm sorry if you were told otherwise but we actually do not recommend oiling the grates on your grill. You can learn more about this by checking out our blog on this topic.

http://www.weber.com/weber-nation/blog/do-my-cast-iron-cooking-grates-need-to-be-seasoned

We recommend preheating your grill for 10-15 minutes before cooking on it. Check out this blog to see what our Grill Master Kevin Kolman has to say about this topic.

Any of our Weber grill brushes will work to clean the grates of your grill. All of them have been tested on both our cast iron and stainless steel greats. I hope this helps! Thanks and grill on!

Do your customers a huge favor, leave the music out of your video.
It is extremely hard to hear who's talking.
Especially for older people.
Don't know why they ever came up with this concept.
It is so bad in movies today, that you have to lip read.
Do us all a favor, forget the music, we don't need it or want it.

Thank You
Ken

Hi Heather! I'm new to the Weber family; having just purchased an awesome new Genesis E330 in copper. I did a lot of fact-finding research, including several trips to the store before buying. I've owned my E330 for just over a month or so and to say I am absolutely delighted with my purchase would be a complete understatement. Hands-down, this is the most well-designed, well-made and hottest gas grill I have ever owned in my 25+ years of grilling! I used to have a hard time getting a good sear on my steaks using other grills, but the E330 gives me a great sear every time in just about 4 min. and also allows me to cook things like chicken thighs with the skin on beautifully at much lower temp. to avoid burning/charring. The E330 also heats VERY evenly across the grate, so no no more "musical meat" moving of food!! There's are also a ton more I could mention about the great features and design of the grill, compared to the imported junk models out there, but Weber did a great job in designing everything about the E330!! Just wanted to share my thoughts and experience with the company and others. Looking forward to another great, beautifully-seared ribeye tonight thanks to my E300! Best regards to you and the all the crew at Weber and thanks for a truly amazing grill!!

I have owned several weber go any where gas grills over the last 20 years and have always been extremely happy with them. the other day i purchased the new version of the weber gas go anywhere grill and have to say its terrible. The new broiler grill is near to impossible to clean the unit is lacking the flavorer bar. The food cooked on it taste different than food cooked on the older unit. I really wish i could package it up and bring it back to the store. What i will most likely do is throw it away in the recycling bin. I did some research on reviews on several websites including amazon and found i am not the only person disappointed. you may want to reconsider the broiler grill and return to the previous quality. the new design is simply not cutting it. I replace my portable unit and need to purchase a bigger unit for the backyard. The new weber go anywhere really has changed my opinion of weber and has made me want to purchase a grill produced by a different manufacture.

In the meantime, we suggest checking with the retailer where you bought the grill to see if you can return it.

Owned a classic Weber Kettle-type charcoal grill years ago, but when my [other brand] natural gas grill gave up recently, I decided it was time to return. On your videos posted here: at least the first one, tips for gas grills, the music is almost loud enough to drown out the narration.

Hi Rollin!
Welcome back to the Weber family! We hope that you are enjoying your new grill! Thanks for the feedback on the video, we will pass this along to the team.
Enjoy the grill and grill on!

After carting around my Weber charcoal grill all over the US and Europe, I finally got a gas grill. The charcoal grill still had plenty of life in it but I wanted the E330. The E330 is a great product and my first cook on it was a success. I commend the engineers and designers that crafted the instructions and purposely chose the components for install. They created an easy assembly experience, no foul language was used during the assembly of my grill.

Hi Chris!
