In our Weber Q1400 review, we'll run through some of the features of this much-loved electric grill.
Weber restyled the Weber Q140 in 2014 into the Weber Q1400 electric grill. You can expect the same great performance from Weber, but with new aesthetics that are functional, including:
- Larger grip handle for better handling
- Larger control knobs for easier use
- Ergonomic side handles to make it easier to pick up and move the grill
- Sturdy front and rear cradles.
About the Weber Q1400 electric grill
Like it's bigger brother, the Weber Q 2400, the Weber Q 1400 electric grill has porcelain-enamelled cast-iron grates that you can sear burgers, steaks and chops; grill chicken, fish, vegetables and fruit. You’ll be amazed at the authentic grilled taste of foods cooked on this electric grill. Delicious!
The Weber Q 1400 grill has all the features, yet is still space-saving and portable. If you live in a condo or apartment where there are restrictions on gas and charcoal grill use, this is a great choice. You'll be able to grill right on your patio or balcony and won't have to worry about dragging and setting up your grill the required distance away from your residence.
Weber Q 1400 is only for outdoor use. If you're after an indoor/outdoor grill, check out the George Foreman GFO3320GM indoor/outdoor grill.

Electricity and heating
Inside this electric grill is a 1560 Watt heating element. It's not as strong as the T-Fal OptiGrill electric grill, which some may find excessive for such a little cooking space. However, it really enables this grill reach over 700 degrees Fahrenheit in less than 10 minutes. Furthermore, it can maintain this temperature for a lengthy period of time.
Size and adaptability
Overall, it's a little grill, but it's rather heavy. However, unlike the Zojirushi Indoor Grill, it is not something you can take with you everywhere. It comes fully constructed out of the box, so it is rather adaptable in that regard.
Following in the footsteps of the Weber charcoal grills and Weber gas grills, the Weber Q1400 Electric Grill is constructed entirely of hard materials. This grill, like the Weber Q2400, features a cast aluminum cover and porcelain enameled cast iron cooking grates. This is the primary cause for the total weight of this electric barbecue.
Even if you've never used a gas barbecue before, running this electric grill is simple. Obviously, your experience will vary based on how much expertise you have with a grill, but even complete beginners can get a handle on it.
Even at its initial price, the Weber Q1400 Electric grill is an excellent deal. To say the least, the fact that you get so much performance and heating power from a grill that costs about 270 dollars is rather astounding. In addition, you receive a five-year limited warranty. However, if you don't have more than $100 to spend on an electric grill, the George Foreman Electric Grill GGR50B is a wonderful cheap option.
We were quite impressed with the Weber Q 1400 Electric Grill in general. It was simple to construct and transport, and it cooked meals to perfection while remaining clean. Yes, there are a few things that might be better, but none of them are deal breakers. The cast iron grates alone make this a winner, and we'd suggest it to anybody who doesn't have access to a gas barbecue.
