7 Reasons For for Choosing the Tefal GC241D40

Lid

The Tefal GC241D40 has a lid, and so do the Big Green Egg Medium EGG, the Cobb Pro and the tepro Crystal Mini, whereas the UCO GR1 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.

Two Plates/racks

The Tefal GC241D40 is a two plate/rack barbecue, whereas the tepro Crystal Mini only has one plate/rack. More ...

We do not know the number of plates/racks on the Big Green Egg Medium EGG, the Cobb Pro or the UCO GR1. 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.

Dishwasher-Proof Parts

The Tefal GC241D40 has a dishwasher-proof parts, whereas the Big Green Egg Medium EGG, the Cobb Pro, the tepro Crystal Mini and the UCO GR1 do not have this feature. 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 GC241D40 features cool-touch handle, whereas the Big Green Egg Medium EGG, the Cobb Pro, the tepro Crystal Mini and the UCO GR1 do not. 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 Tefal GC241D40 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, but the Big Green Egg Medium EGG scored 74, the Cobb Pro scored 73, the tepro Crystal Mini scored 77 and the UCO GR1 scored only 66.

21 Months Newer

The Tefal GC241D40 was released two years ago, but the Big Green Egg Medium EGG was released four years ago, the Cobb Pro was released five years ago, the tepro Crystal Mini was released five years ago and the UCO GR1 was released five years ago

Overall Reviews Are Better

The average overall review score of the Tefal GC241D40 is 80% based on 72 reviews, but the average rating of the Cobb Pro is 73% (based on 1 review).

2 Reasons Against for Choosing the Tefal GC241D40

$60 More Expensive

Worse Brand

Tefal barbecues have an average rating of only 76.5%, however Cobb has an average rating of 76.8%.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Tepro Crystal Mini

Lid

Smoke Function

The Big Green Egg Medium EGG has a smoke function, but the Cobb Pro, the Tefal GC241D40, the tepro Crystal Mini and the UCO GR1 do not have this feature. More ...

The denotes whether the BBQ has the ability to channel the smoke from the coals into (usually) a separate area, to allow for smoking foods rather than cooking them.

Smoking meat and fish, whether hot or cold smoking, normally requires specialist gear and a lot of work. Having a smoking function on your BBQ makes it far easier to create delicious hot-smoked salmon.
