I just like having color, and it looks like the warrantees for the porcelin coated and the stainless steel are the same. With the sear burner I may be able to get the best of both worlds.
I think that's an excellent choice. I love the stainless cooking grates. The porcelain coated hood can look new for many years.

The only thing I would suggest is to make sure you level your grill. It makes a surprising amount of difference in the evenness of heat.

I started to say, "Tell me how you like the sear burner." But I'd almost prefer you didn't. I missed out on that feature by one model year.

I have trouble getting the sear burner to turn off. Even when I turn it all the way down. It keeps going. Might need to call weber about that...

And I guess I should level the grill.....

Here I was expecting a thread about grills, not outdoor ovens.

Guess you'll just have to hit up PP for a real grilled hamburger.

Having a sear option is cool. So many more choices of things to cook. I have neighbors that call me just to borrow/use that option on my outdoor grill.

Hoping to fire up the grill this weekend actually. Got some bacon wrapped filets from Omaha Steaks for Christmas that are just begging for some charcoal goodness.

Which brand do you have? Is it a Weber? If so, how much difference does the Sear Station make (compared to cooking over the regular burners on high)?

So, my EP 330 has arrived, been assembled, and tested.

LOVE IT!!

Grilled burgers for the first go around. Nice sear, even heat, no flare ups. No shuffling the burgers around and constantly monitoring each one for doneness. After that, fired it up again and did two bacon wrapped filet mignons, a couple of baked potatoes and hotdogs for the boys. The sear station was wonderful for the steaks, leaving the middle burner off for indirect heat for the potatoes worked beautifully. The hot dogs, well, they were hot dogs, not much to say about that.

I want to do a chicken on it soon.
