8 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Q1200

Lid

The Weber Q1200 has a lid (as do the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro and the Tefal Optigrill+), 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 does the Philips HD637194), but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro and the Tefal Optigrill+ 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 Cobb Pro and the Philips HD637194 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 Cobb Pro scored only 73, the Philips HD637194 scored 82 and the Tefal Optigrill+ scored 81.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Better Overall Reviews

The Weber Q1200 has an average overall review score of 93% based on 703 reviews, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro has an average rating of 62% (based on 320 reviews), the Cobb Pro has an average rating of 77% (based on 0 reviews), the Philips HD637194 has an average rating of 88% (based on 110 reviews) and the Tefal Optigrill+ has an average rating of 85% (based on 443 reviews).

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Char-Broil only has an average rating of 63.5%, Cobb only has an average rating of 75.8%, Philips only has an average rating of 76.4% and Tefal only has an average rating of 71.4%.

More Solidly Made

The Weber Q1200 reviewers thought the Weber Q1200 was more solidly made. Over 30 people thought that it was very well made and several people thought that it was also very strong and durable, was reliable and was difficult to damage or scratch.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Weber Q1200

A Lot Smaller Cooking Surface

The Weber Q1200 has a cooking surface of 430mm, whereas the Tefal Optigrill+ is a 600mm cooking surface barbecue (170mm bigger). More ...

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

More Expensive by $84

The Weber Q1200 is $70 more expensive than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, $84 more expensive than the Cobb Pro and $60 more expensive than the Philips HD637194.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Char-Broil Patio Bistro

Warming Rack
