Weber 46110001 Spirit E210 Liquid Propane Gas Grill, Black Review
Editor Rating: 4.6/5
High-quality materials equal long lifespan - Weber is arguably the most popular name when it comes to making some of the best long-lasting grilling products. The Weber 46110001 Spirit E210 LP Gas Grill which is what we will be reviewing today is no different. It is a little pricey but we recommend it for anyone who is willing to spend a bit more to get a high-quality grill.
Although the fuel gauge is a useful feature in determining where you stand on fuel, I find it awkward and difficult to actually hang the fuel tank on the hook. You can easily work around this though by placing a piece of plywood in the cabinet so that the tank can rest flat on the cabinet floor.
Nonetheless, most of the components feel solid especially the cooking grates, you could tell that it is made of a heavy duty material. All the components attach to each other perfectly making the overall look solid, attractive, and not flimsy when moved.
