Weber 46310001 Spirit E-220 Review


(OutdoorGardenLiving)- A small gas grill crossing over into the portable realm, the Weber Spirit E-220 is set up with 2 burners and 12,000 BTU going through a side burner.  While the grill is basic, some will find the side burner of use.

What differentiates this grill from other grills in the Spirit 200 series is the footprint of those is smaller because of the side tables being able to fold down, whereas the Spirit E-220 has the side burner, keeping the tables static.


  • Evenness in high temperature
  • Performance of low temperature cooking


  • Stainless steel is of lower quality

Weber Spirit E-220- Extended Review

This grill is simple in specs, which was the likely intention of Weber.  Its limiting size is really meant for the smaller patio space, but it’s still capable of indirect and rotisserie style cooking.

The Weber Spirit E-220 isn’t meant to be the most powerful, with 26,000 BTUs going through 2 burners.  Because of this, preheating takes longer.

However, heat is satisfactorily transferred and held in the cast iron cooking grates.  The wide range in temperature this grill goes to allows above average low temperature cooking.

Other Gas Grills to Consider

If it wasn’t for the stationary side tables and a 12,000 BTU side burner then the Spirit E-220 and Weber Spirit E-310 would be the same grill.

Consider the Spirit E-310 if a side burner isn’t needed.  By saving up a bit more you’d be getting an extra 79 square inches of total cooking space.

Typical Price

Very few of the retailers mark this grill at $900. More commonly will it set you back half of that at $450.  Amazon’s price here is one of the lowest you’re going to find.
