The Bottom Line

This model has been discontinued. The closest matching product is the Weber Spirit E-320.

This Weber Spirit Gas Grill, the S-320, is configured exclusively for Home Depot. The only difference between this grill and the E-320 is that this one has porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates and a stainless steel hood insert (between the cast aluminum end caps). The S-320 sells for $579USD making it $70 less than the list price of the E-320 (which can be had on sale for as low as $549).

The stainless steel hood piece is merely decorative, but the cast iron cooking grates improve the cooking characteristics of this grill, making this version the better choice of the Spirit E-Series grills.

Guide Review - Weber Spirit S-320 Home Depot Edition

Home Depot has stocked a special version of Weber Grills over the years. Typically they offer porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates that the regular model doesn't have.

This is the case with the Weber S-320. This Chinese made Weber is has a lower list price of the Spirit E-320, making this the better deal (all Spirit Grills are made in China).

The Weber Spirit S-320 has three 12,000 BTU stainless steel burners under two porcelain coated cast iron cooking grates and a 12,000 BTU side burner. The grease management system of this grill reduces flare-ups and the firebox design gives you a very even heat (though it tends to be a little hotter on the left side because of the crossover ignition system). Ignition is from a push button, piezoelectric igniter which shouldn't clog anytime soon.

This is a great, basic grill with side burner. If you are serious about grilling food and don't need a lot of extras this is the grill you should buy. The one drawback I have with this grill is the limited work space. With the control valves on the right side table and the side burner in the left table, you don't have a lot of space to put down a plate, let alone prepare a meal.

Largely constructed from porcelain coated steel this grill does have stainless steel side tables and hood shroud, though not made of the best quality stainless. The internal components are all of the best quality and built to last.

Weber ranks amongst the best grills on the market and you pay for that quality and the 24/7 support. This is a basic grill will give you dependable performance for many years to come and with a good warranty you'll be able to keep it fixed up and working like new long than most grill last.
