For years, Weber has stuck to making the grills in their Genesis line with three burners. When the company unveiled the Weber Genesis II line in 2017, loyalists were impressed with the new configurations. The Weber Genesis II E-410 is a four burner model available with either a liquid propane or natural gas grill configuration.

In addition to an extra burner, the Genesis II E-410 Natural Gas Grill features a GS4 Grilling system. The operation includes an Infinity Ignition system, redesigned stainless steel burners, a grease management system, and porcelain-enameled Flavorizer Bars. Still, no one wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a grill only to find out that it doesn’t meet expectations. So, we reviewed the Weber Genesis II E-410’s design to determine if it is efficient.
Delivery and Packaging
The Weber Genesis E-410 Natural Gas Grill arrives in about a week after ordering. It comes in a 36″ x 36″ box with the model’s picture glued to the carton. The unit weighs nearly 200 pounds and requires the hands of two people to lift it from the box. There are approximately 58 components in the case. Individual parts are bubble wrapped or placed in separate cartons under a plastic cover.
An expert assembly option is available. However, those who put the unit together found it was fairly easy to assemble with a two-person team. Reviewers found that having their favorite drink handy helped the two to four hour assembly time fly by.
Construction and Appearance
The Weber Genesis II E-410 is a sturdy grill constructed of cast aluminum, stainless steel, and enameled steel. It comes outfitted with a temperature-gauged lid, porcelain-enamel grates, and a tuck-away warming tray. It also features stainless steel workspaces with integrated hooks. The unit rests on two large wheels and two small casters with locks. Also, it’s worth mentioning that this model is available in multiple colors.
The open cart design provides easy access and storage space for grilling tools. A grease tray sits between the firebox and the bottom shelf. Natural Gas Grills engineered for propane use have a storage area that shields the tank as it sits underneath the right shelf.
Facts and Figures
The great debate about which type of gas provides a better grilling experience continues. On the one hand, liquid propane gas is convenient. But users still have to make several trips to fill the tank. On the other hand, natural gas is more energy efficient. However, it will cause the energy bill to increase. As far as performance goes, there is no difference between the two.
The Weber Genesis II E-410 Natural Gas Grill is available with natural gas or liquid propane configurations. This cart-style grill has four burners, which generate 12,000 BTUs each for a total of 48,000 BTUs of power over its 646 square-inch cooking area. The tuck-away rack offers an additional 198 square inches for a total of 844 square inches.
This unit weighs 190 pounds and measures 39″ high, 33″ wide, and 26″ deep. Weber offers a generous guarantee on the E-410 model. Major parts are backed by a 10-year warranty and Weber’s superior customer service.
The Weber E-410 is loaded with features, but its main attraction is the GS4 cooking system. The operation includes high-performing rectangular top-ported burners. With this design, the flame goes straight to the Flavorizer Bars. Also, the tapered burners help distribute the heat evenly.
Another feature of this system is the Infinity Ignition, which positions a battery-powered, push-button ignition beneath a protective cuff. The manufacturer guarantees it will ignite with each push. In fact, Weber is so confident in this system that it offers a 10-year warranty on the part.
Weber’s E-410 model comes with reversible grates to allow outdoor grillmasters the opportunity to have more creativity with the menu. The main side of the porcelain-coated cooking grate is wide, and form thick, attractive sear marks on meats and vegetables. The reverse side of the cooking grate is thin, which is perfect for cooking delicate foods like shrimp.
Instead of a swing-away rack, the rack tucks away on the Weber Genesis II E-410. This convenient feature gives users more grilling space when the rack is not in use. As standard on Weber grills, the Weber Genesis II E-410 comes with Flavorizer Bars to enhance the flavor of meats and vegetables and reduce flare-ups.
The grease management system is positioned beneath the firebox and takes care of any drippings missed by the Flavorizer Bars. Also, stainless steel heat deflectors help hold and spread heat uniformly over the entire cooking area.
The Weber Genesis II E-410 is available in four colors. Buyers have the option of choosing black, crimson, copper, and smoke. This attractive unit has the iGrill3 assembly. IGrill3 is a digital Bluetooth thermometer that allows users to download an app to monitor the cooking temperature from a Bluetooth-enabled device.
Compared to other Weber grills, the E-410 model does not rank well for high heat. With only 75 BTUs per square inch of cooking surface, it takes the grill a while to heat, and it can only go so far in disbursing heat over a 646-square foot cooking surface.
Still, users expressed satisfaction with the grill’s performance and ability to hold heat. The heavy firebox keeps heat in place and the heavy cast iron cooking grates do a stellar job preserving and transferring heat. In a nutshell, the grill has an efficient design, but it could use a few improvements.
- Sold as propane or natural gas
- Four top-ported stainless steel burners totaling 48,000 BTUs
- 844 square inches of cooking space (646 primary and 198 secondary
- Porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grates
- Available in four colors
- Low heat output
- No side-burner
There are more powerful grills on the market than the E-410, but this model offers the quality one would expect from Weber. In fact, it is a sure bet for achieving a superior grilling experience. Although it does not produce a blistering sear, it does an excellent job providing an even cooking surface, retaining and transferring heat, and indirect cooking.
