Before we do a comparison and contrast analysis on Weber Q300 vs Q320, let us have a quick recap on the benefits of the gas grills. First, the gas grills are healthier than the very cheap stove top grill. The heat will be evenly dispersed that’s why you get a grill that not only looks good, but has been cooked to perfection. As for durability, you can expect the gas grills to last for many years. If you check out some honest reviews on the stove top grills, you will be surprised how some people was only able to use the stove top grills less than 5 times. So why spend money on a grill that will not last for long?
Compare Weber Q300 Vs Q320
Price - Let’s first check out the price difference between these grilling machines. The Weber Q320 is obviously the upgraded version of the WeberQ300. Obviously, the price of the Q320 is slightly higher than the Q300. The price difference is from $50 to 100. This is not a bad deal for an upgraded grilling machine.
The Weber Q300′s features are almost the same as the Weber Q320. Here are the basic features that are present in both grills:
- durable cast aluminum body with safety lid
- the nylon frame is glass reinforced for added safety
- the 21,700 BTU per hour capacity of the 2 stainless steel burners assure even cooking for fruits, vegetables, fish and meat
- built-in thermometer and adjustable heat thermometer for easier control of the heat
- free hooks for placing the grilling tools
- free cook book for the beginners
- 5 year warranty for all the major parts

My opinion on Weber Q320 vs Q300
Since the important features are basically the same, then why pay an additional $50 to $100 when you can have it all in the Weber Q300? The specific difference between the two is that the Q320 is larger than the Q300. The main difference is the cooking space.
If you can grill a whole medium sized turkey evenly with the Weber Q300, expect to grill a whole large sized turkey with the Weber Q320. The Q320 has a total cooking space of 462 square inches while the cooking space of the Q300 is just 386 square inches.
However, aside from the larger cooking space, there is also a free stationary cart that comes along with each purchase of a brand new Weber Q320. How is that for an added $50 to $100 payment? I’ll leave it up for you to decide.
