7 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Q1200

Adjustable Thermostat

The Weber Q1200 has an adjustable thermostat, but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro, the LANDMANN 560202 and the Tefal GC241D40 do not. 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, and so does the Tefal GC241D40, but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro and the LANDMANN 560202 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 Weber Q1200 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro scored 81, the Cobb Pro scored only 74, the LANDMANN 560202 scored only 77 and the Tefal GC241D40 scored only 73.

More Shops Are Selling it

Overall Reviews Are a Lot Better

Based on 20 reviews, the average review score of the Weber Q1200 is 93%, however the average rating of the Char-Broil Patio Bistro is 65% (based on 6 reviews) and the average rating of the Tefal GC241D40 is 80% (based on 72 reviews).

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Char-Broil only has an average rating of 70.2%, Cobb only has an average rating of 75.9%, LANDMANN only has an average rating of 74.8% and Tefal only has an average rating of 71.3%.

2 Reasons Against for Choosing the Weber Q1200

1 Reason For for Choosing the LANDMANN 560202

Smoke Function

The LANDMANN 560202 has a smoke function, whereas the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro, the Tefal GC241D40 and the Weber Q1200 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.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the LANDMANN 560202

Worse Kagoo Score

The LANDMANN 560202 has only received a Kagoo Score of 77, but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro scored 81 and the Weber Q1200 scored 88.

$152 More Expensive

The LANDMANN 560202 is more expensive than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro by $71, more expensive than the Cobb Pro by $152 and more expensive than the Weber Q1200 by $15.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 seller sell the LANDMANN 560202, however 4 shops sell the Weber Q1200. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this barbecue remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Eight Months Older

The LANDMANN 560202 is older than the Tefal GC241D40 by eight months.

Worse Brand

LANDMANN barbecues have an average rating of only 74.8%, however Cobb has an average rating of 75.9% and Weber has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 560202 in the US is $210.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

Portable

The Char-Broil Patio Bistro is a portable barbecue (as is the Cobb Pro), however the LANDMANN 560202, the Tefal GC241D40 and the Weber Q1200 are not. More ...

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 Cobb Pro, the LANDMANN 560202, the Tefal GC241D40 and the Weber Q1200 do not. 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.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Tefal GC241D40

Dishwasher-Proof Parts

The Tefal GC241D40 has a dishwasher-proof parts, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro, the LANDMANN 560202 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 GC241D40 features cool-touch handle (as does the Weber Q1200), however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Cobb Pro and the LANDMANN 560202 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.

Newer by Eight Months

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Cobb Pro

Portable

The Cobb Pro is a portable barbecue (as is the Char-Broil Patio Bistro), but the LANDMANN 560202, the Tefal GC241D40 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!

Cheaper by $80

The Cobb Pro costs $58.50, whereas the Char-Broil Patio Bistro is $138.99, the LANDMANN 560202 is $210.00 and the Weber Q1200 is $194.99.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Cobb Pro

Hugely Smaller Cooking Area

The Cobb Pro has a cooking area of 735, but the LANDMANN 560202 is a 4,729cm² cooking area barbecue (3,994cm² bigger). More ...

The usable cooking area on a barbecue is a measurement of the physical size of the grill that can be used for cooking food.

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

Worse Kagoo Score

The Cobb Pro has only received a Kagoo Score of 74, but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro scored 81, the LANDMANN 560202 scored 77 and the Weber Q1200 scored 88.

Not As Many Stockists

The Cobb Pro is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Weber Q1200 is stocked by 4 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this barbecue.
Older by Over Three Years

The Cobb Pro is two years older than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, three years older than the LANDMANN 560202, three years older than the Tefal GC241D40 and eight months older than the Weber Q1200.

Worse Brand

Cobb barbecues have an average rating of only 75.9%, however Weber has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Pro in the US is $58.50 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
