6 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Q1200

Adjustable Thermostat

The Weber Q1200 has an adjustable thermostat (as does the Bestron ASW318), however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Tefal Optigrill+ 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 do the Bestron ASW318 and the Tefal Optigrill+), however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro 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, whereas the Bestron ASW318 scored only 77, the Char-Broil Patio Bistro scored only 77, the Tefal Optigrill+ scored 84 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored only 78.

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

More Expensive by $79

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Tefal Optigrill+

One More Plate/rack

The Tefal Optigrill+ 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 Bestron ASW318, the Char-Broil Patio Bistro 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.

23% Bigger Cooking Surface

The Tefal Optigrill+ has a cooking surface of 600mm, however the Weber Q1200 is only a 430mm cooking surface barbecue (170mm 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, whereas the Bestron ASW318, the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Q1200 do not. More ...

Cool-Touch Handle

The Tefal Optigrill+ features cool-touch handle (as do the Bestron ASW318 and the Weber Q1200), whereas the Char-Broil Patio Bistro 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.

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 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.
