The newest model of Weber’s gas grill series is the Weber Genesis II. It comes with two major features – a stainless steel body that is completely finished and a big cooking surface that is very similar to that of a large outdoor charcoal grill. If you’re planning to buy one, we suggest that you go through this article to get a better understanding about this product.
Weber’s Genesis grill line-up is a great deal more comprehensive than the charcoal grill they introduced in 2021. The charcoal grill that we are familiar with was really a scaled down version of their larger charcoal grill line. The grills offered at that time had an automatic ash collector, but none of the extras we have come to expect. But the grills offered by Weber also were quite limited in terms of size. They were quite slim compared to other manufacturers’ offerings.
Today, we find that the Weber Genesis II has taken everything we loved about the charcoal grill and brought it into the modern era. This grill is equipped with a three-zone digital control display that lets you cook different foods in three different positions. We like how you can use the grill for steaks, meat, veggies and even desserts.
The big selling point when we talk about Weber grills is that you get the benefits of a charcoal grill plus the convenience of a modern stainless steel grill. Weber claims that their newer models offer a higher level of safety than their previous models. With their new Genesis line, we can now take advantage of this safety feature. The grill does not get hot unlike the charcoal grill we know from Weber.
You still get the same great functions with the charcoal grills we saw earlier. This grill also gets very hot (up to 450 degrees F). You do have the option to use a thermometer to monitor the temperature. A benefit we did not see with the Weber Genesis II compared to the previous models is the ability to lock the venting system on a stainless steel grill. Other features we enjoyed with the grill we mentioned earlier is its easy cleanup, high level of quality construction and the ability to use it for any occasion.
For those interested in Weber Genesis II Vs Weber Genesis I, we have enclosed our review in this article. To begin, we have to state that we are not impartial when we write an evaluation. Each grill we test has its strong points and we base our evaluations on those. In this case we feel that the Weber Genesis II really offers a lot of value in the price range it is offered.
Out of all of the charcoal grills we have tested, we feel that the Genesis II is probably one of the best. We also find that this grill runs a bit more expensive than most. However, we also found that this grill has some great features that set it apart from the other products we tested. One of these is the variable heat control. When we turned up the heat on the Genesis we found that it would return the setting to the optimal heat level. Another great feature we enjoyed with this grill was the ability to cook different foods at different temperatures.
The Weber Genesis II is one of the best gas grills we have reviewed. Although it does cost a bit more we found that it offers a lot of value for the price. If you are looking for a good charcoal grill that offers decent performance and is reasonably priced, we recommend the Genesis II.
