8 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Q1200

Lid

The Weber Q1200 has a lid (as do the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Tefal Optigrill+ and the tepro Crystal Mini), but the Philips HD637194 does not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

A lid on a BBQ is extremely helpful for stopping the spread of smoke, as well as keeping the heat contained, meaning the food cooks quicker, and there's less chance of an accident. It's absolutely essential for trapping the smoke for hot-smoking food as well.

Adjustable Thermostat

The Weber Q1200 has an adjustable thermostat (as do the Philips HD637194 and the Tefal Optigrill+), but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro and the tepro Crystal Mini do not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues have an adjustable thermostat that can be altered, to change the heat up or down.

Different food cook best at different temperatures, so the ability to change the heat level of your BBQ means that you can always pick the best temperature for what you're cooking.

Cool-Touch Handle

The Weber Q1200 features cool-touch handle (as does the Tefal Optigrill+), but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Philips HD637194 and the tepro Crystal Mini do not feature this benefit. More ...

A barbecue with cool touch handles is specially designed to be always cool to the touch, even when the main body of the BBQ is extremely hot.

Cool touch handles mean that the BBQ is far easier to move around and handle, and there is less of a chance of you accidentally burning yourself on hot metal. Which hurts. A lot.

Better Kagoo Score

The Weber Q1200 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro scored 79, the Philips HD637194 scored 85, the Tefal Optigrill+ scored 82 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored only 77.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this barbecue.

Better User Reviews

The Weber Q1200 has an average user review score of 99% based on 19 reviews, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro has an average rating of 82% (based on 51 reviews), the Philips HD637194 has an average rating of 88% (based on 110 reviews) and the Tefal Optigrill+ has an average rating of 94% (based on 427 reviews).

Better Overall Reviews

The Weber Q1200 has an average overall review score of 93% based on 20 reviews, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro has an average rating of 76% (based on 53 reviews), the Philips HD637194 has an average rating of 88% (based on 110 reviews) and the Tefal Optigrill+ has an average rating of 86% (based on 445 reviews).

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Char-Broil only has an average rating of 63.1%, Philips only has an average rating of 77.8%, Tefal only has an average rating of 71.8% and tepro only has an average rating of 63.1%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Weber Q1200

370mm Smaller Cooking Surface

The Weber Q1200 has a cooking surface of 430mm, whereas the Tefal Optigrill+ is an 800mm cooking surface barbecue (370mm bigger). More ...

'Cooking Surface' is the size of the usable cooking area in the BBQ, measured in millimetres.

A larger surface area means there is more space to cook food on, meaning more food can be cooked at once.

More Expensive by $110

The Weber Q1200 is $51 more expensive than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro and $110 more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini.

Older by Over Two Years

The Weber Q1200 is 16 months older than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, two years older than the Philips HD637194 and 22 months older than the Tefal Optigrill+.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Q1200 in the US is $189.99 and in total we found 5 prices for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Tefal Optigrill+

Lid

The Tefal Optigrill+ has a lid (as do the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200), however the Philips HD637194 does not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

A lid on a BBQ is extremely helpful for stopping the spread of smoke, as well as keeping the heat contained, meaning the food cooks quicker, and there's less chance of an accident. It's absolutely essential for trapping the smoke for hot-smoking food as well.

One More Plate/rack

The Tefal Optigrill+ has two plates/racks, however the tepro Crystal Mini only has one plate/rack. More ...

We do not know the number of plates/racks on the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Philips HD637194 or the Weber Q1200. It is possible that they do not have any plates/racks.

The number of hot plates / racks on the BBQ refers to the number of designated areas or levels for cooking different types of food.

More plates and racks means more different areas to cook food on. This is especially helpful if you're trying to cook meat, fish and vegetable dishes all at the same time, and want to separate them out.

Adjustable Thermostat

The Tefal Optigrill+ has an adjustable thermostat (as do the Philips HD637194 and the Weber Q1200), however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro and the tepro Crystal Mini do not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues have an adjustable thermostat that can be altered, to change the heat up or down.

Different food cook best at different temperatures, so the ability to change the heat level of your BBQ means that you can always pick the best temperature for what you're cooking.

A Lot Bigger Cooking Surface

The Tefal Optigrill+ has a cooking surface of 800mm, but the Weber Q1200 is only a 430mm cooking surface barbecue (370mm smaller). More ...

'Cooking Surface' is the size of the usable cooking area in the BBQ, measured in millimetres.

A larger surface area means there is more space to cook food on, meaning more food can be cooked at once.

Dishwasher-Proof Parts

The Tefal Optigrill+ has a dishwasher-proof parts, and so does the Philips HD637194, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200 do not. More ...

Some barbecues have parts and accessories that are safe to clean in the dishwasher.

Grilling up meat on the BBQ can be a messy business, so being able to throw bits in the dishwasher to clean post-cooking makes cleanup far easier!

Cool-Touch Handle

The Tefal Optigrill+ features cool-touch handle (as does the Weber Q1200), however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Philips HD637194 and the tepro Crystal Mini do not feature this benefit. More ...

A barbecue with cool touch handles is specially designed to be always cool to the touch, even when the main body of the BBQ is extremely hot.

Cool touch handles mean that the BBQ is far easier to move around and handle, and there is less of a chance of you accidentally burning yourself on hot metal. Which hurts. A lot.

One More Award

The Tefal Optigrill+ has received 1 award from an expert review site, but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro has received no awards, the Philips HD637194 has received no awards, the tepro Crystal Mini has received no awards and the Weber Q1200 has received no awards.

Better Expert Reviews

Based on 18 expert reviews, the Tefal Optigrill+ has an average review score of 80%, whereas the Char-Broil Patio Bistro has an average rating of 73% (based on 2 reviews).

Has a Better Design

The Tefal Optigrill+ reviewers thought the Tefal Optigrill+ has a better design. More than 90 people thought that it was really well designed and eight people thought that it was also very good-looking.

Easier to Use

On average reviewers thought the Tefal Optigrill+ was easier to use. More than 100 people thought that it was very easy to use and two people thought that it also had good controls.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Tefal Optigrill+

Does Not Have a Non-Stick Coating

The Tefal Optigrill+ does not have a non-stick coating, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Philips HD637194, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200 have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues have a special non-stick coating to stop food sticking to it as it cooks.

Non-stick coatings make removing food from the BBQ much easier, and mean far less mess to clean up post-cooking.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Tefal Optigrill+ has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the Philips HD637194 scored 85 and the Weber Q1200 scored 88.

More Expensive by $215

The Tefal Optigrill+ is $156 more expensive than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, $35 more expensive than the Philips HD637194, $215 more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini and $105 more expensive than the Weber Q1200.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Char-Broil Patio Bistro

Lid

The Char-Broil Patio Bistro has a lid, and so do the Tefal Optigrill+, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200, but the Philips HD637194 does not. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

A lid on a BBQ is extremely helpful for stopping the spread of smoke, as well as keeping the heat contained, meaning the food cooks quicker, and there's less chance of an accident. It's absolutely essential for trapping the smoke for hot-smoking food as well.

Portable

The Char-Broil Patio Bistro is portable, however the Philips HD637194, the Tefal Optigrill+, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200 are not. More ...

A portable barbecue is one that is designed to be easily transported.

Portable BBQs are far easier to move from place to place, and can be set up anywhere - helpful for impromptu picnics!

Warming Rack

The Char-Broil Patio Bistro has a warming rack, whereas the Philips HD637194, the Tefal Optigrill+, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200 do not have this feature. More ...

Whether the BBQ comes with a warming rack - a heated element that keeps food warm between cooking and serving.

Warming racks are helpful, since they mean food won't go cold while it's waiting to be served up.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Tepro Crystal Mini

Lid

The tepro Crystal Mini has a lid (as do the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Tefal Optigrill+ and the Weber Q1200), however the Philips HD637194 does not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

A lid on a BBQ is extremely helpful for stopping the spread of smoke, as well as keeping the heat contained, meaning the food cooks quicker, and there's less chance of an accident. It's absolutely essential for trapping the smoke for hot-smoking food as well.

Cheaper by $59

The tepro Crystal Mini is $58.99 cheaper than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, $180 cheaper than the Philips HD637194, $215.04 cheaper than the Tefal Optigrill+ and $109.99 cheaper than the Weber Q1200.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Tepro Crystal Mini

One Less Plate/rack

The tepro Crystal Mini has one plate/rack, however the Tefal Optigrill+ only has two plates/racks. More ...

We do not know the number of plates/racks on the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Philips HD637194 or the Weber Q1200. It is possible that they do not have any plates/racks.

The number of hot plates / racks on the BBQ refers to the number of designated areas or levels for cooking different types of food.

More plates and racks means more different areas to cook food on. This is especially helpful if you're trying to cook meat, fish and vegetable dishes all at the same time, and want to separate them out.

Worse Kagoo Score

The tepro Crystal Mini has only received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Char-Broil Patio Bistro scored 79, the Philips HD637194 scored 85, the Tefal Optigrill+ scored 82 and the Weber Q1200 scored 88.

Fewer Sellers

The tepro Crystal Mini is only stocked by 1 store, but the Philips HD637194 is stocked by 2 shops, the Tefal Optigrill+ is stocked by 2 sellers and the Weber Q1200 is stocked by 5 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over Two Years

The tepro Crystal Mini is 21 months older than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, two years older than the Philips HD637194, two years older than the Tefal Optigrill+ and five months older than the Weber Q1200.

Worse Brand

Tepro barbecues have an average rating of only 63.1%, but Philips has an average rating of 77.8%, Tefal has an average rating of 71.8% and Weber has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Crystal Mini in the US is $80.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
