The Weber Q3200 is a great option if you need a small and portable grill for your family. It has two stainless steel burners and produces 21,700 BTU per hour. During testing, I was very impressed with its performance and found it incredibly easy to assemble. 

If you are looking for the best gas grills, then the Weber Q3200 is a solid choice. I will break down and assess the specifications, features, and user reviews to help you compare this grill to other models that you may be interested in.

One feature that stood out to us during testing was the size of the grill. It is small, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Its size makes it ideal for couples or small families while also making it easy to assemble and remarkably portable. The 393 square inch cooking area is plenty big enough for multiple burgers or chicken legs, and the two powerful burners will grill them to perfection.

I found that the Weber Q3200 is one of the better models that we tested, and the time saved on assembly was definitely a bonus.

Weber Q3200: Price & availability

The Weber Q3200 usually retails for around $540, which is pricier considering its size. While this grill does boast a number of impressive features and cooks food to perfection, you may want to think about whether you have space for a larger grill - if you have your heart set on a compact model, then this is definitely as good as they come.

This grill comes with a 5-year warranty, which is definitely one of the longest on the market. 

Weber Q3200: Setup

Setting up the Weber Q3200 gas grill is an easy and straightforward process. The grill comes with a detailed instruction manual that provides clear step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the grill. The first step is to unpack all the parts and ensure that all the necessary pieces are included.

Once you have everything you need, start by attaching the legs to the base of the grill. The legs are secured using bolts and screws, which are also included in the package. Next, attach the side tables to the grill by sliding them into place and securing them with bolts.

The propane tank holder is also attached to the grill at this point. The final step is to attach the cooking grates and warming rack to the grill. These simply sit on top of the burners and are secured in place using bolts.

Weber Q3200: Design

The design of the Weber Q3200 gas grill is both stylish and functional. The compact size of the grill makes it perfect for small families or couples who want to enjoy outdoor cooking without taking up too much space. The grill is made from high-quality materials, including aluminum, cast iron, and plastic, which are durable and long-lasting.

The enameled exterior is also decently resistant to the elements, but it is recommended that the grill be stored in a garage or house after use. The two wheels on the base of the grill make it easy to move around your garden or porch, and the all-weather wheels make it easy to move around even in inclement weather.

The side tables are a great addition, providing ample space for prepping and serving food, while the porcelain enameled cast iron cooking grates are more resistant to rust or corrosion compared to standard cast iron.

Weber Q3200: Performance

The Weber Q3200 gas grill delivers impressive performance despite its compact size. The two stainless steel burners produce 21,700 BTU per hour, which is more than enough to grill food to perfection. I found that the grill heats up quickly and evenly, ensuring that food is cooked thoroughly and consistently.

The 393 square inch cooking area is plenty big enough for multiple burgers or chicken legs, making it ideal for small families or couples. The easy-start ignition system is also a great feature, allowing the grill to be turned on at the press of a button.

During the testing process, I was very impressed with the performance of the Weber Q3200 gas grill. The grill is easy to use and produces tasty and well-cooked food every time. The removable catch pan is also a great feature that makes cleaning up after cooking a breeze.

Weber Q3200: Maintenance

Maintaining the Weber Q3200 gas grill is a crucial aspect of ensuring its longevity and performance. Fortunately, the grill is relatively easy to maintain, and with proper care, it can last for many years. One of the most important things to do is to clean the grill after each use. This involves removing any food debris and grease from the cooking grates and wiping down the exterior of the grill with a damp cloth.

The removable catch pan should also be emptied and cleaned regularly to prevent the buildup of grease and other debris. It is also important to keep the grill covered when not in use. This will protect it from the elements and prevent it from rusting or corroding over time.

The propane tank should also be checked regularly to ensure that it is not running low. This will prevent the grill from running out of gas in the middle of cooking.

Weber Q3200: User reviews

I found the Weber Q3200 to be high quality and reliable, and we're not the only ones. The grill has an average rating of 4.6/5 stars on Weber's website. Users praise its durability and ability to cook delicious grilled food. 

One happy user said, "This grill has been very fun to cook with. It has great heat. We’ve cooked everything from hamburgers, chicken, kabobs, steaks, hotdogs, brats, and pizzas so far. I like the size of it. It’s not a monster on my deck. I bought the Weber cover for it and stored it with the end tables down. The cover still works well with the tables down." 

The small number of negative reviews are often about faulty units, one unhappy user said "All parts weren’t provided. Customer service was terrible, and I’ve waited almost a month with no sign of the missing parts being delivered."

Weber is often quick to respond to all feedback and appears to pay a lot of attention to customers who have had a negative experience. 

Should you buy the Weber Q3200?

I believe that the price of the grill is reasonable, considering its reliability, efficiency, and numerous impressive cooking features. The ability to illuminate the grill during cooking is a great addition, and the food quality is nearly perfect. However, it's worth noting that the grill is on the smaller side, so if you have a larger family or frequently host cookouts, it may not be the best option for you. On the other hand, if you have a small family or are a couple, you'll have a hard time finding a better grill on the market.

How does the Weber Q3200 compare?

When compared to other Weber grills, such as the Weber Genesis EPX-335, the Q3200 is less expensive and doesn't require a connection to an electric outlet or a USB power source to use the digital screen. However, it doesn't have as many features as the Weber Genesis EPX-335, such as the bonus burner for caramelization and a side burner.

Other models, like the Weber Traveler, are portable and designed for on-the-go grilling but don't provide the same cooking capacity or features as the Q3200. The Weber Spirit II E-310 is another grill that offers more cooking space than the Q3200 but doesn't come with a stand, making it less suitable for stationary use.

How I tested the Weber Q3200

At Top Ten Reviews, we are committed to providing consumers with the best possible purchasing advice. To achieve this, we conduct extensive product testing, beginning with the unboxing and assembly, followed by an examination of performance, storage, and maintenance. 

When reviewing gas grills, we time and assess the ease of assembly. Our reviewer then conducted precise cooking tests, including cooking chicken breasts, steaks, burgers, whole chicken, and vegetables. During these tests, they evaluated the range of temperatures the grill can achieve, cooking times, the evenness and consistency of temperature, and any accessories that come with the grill. 

Once the cooking tests are completed, we consult with experts to seek advice on the best methods for cleaning, storing, and maintaining the grill. For more, head to our dedicated page on how we test.
