7 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

Lid

The Weber Performer Deluxe has a lid, and so do the Cobb Pro, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini, but the Everdure FUSION 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.

32% Bigger Cooking Surface Diameter

The Weber Performer Deluxe is a 545 cooking surface diameter barbecue. That's 255mm bigger than the tepro Crystal Mini (290mm). More ...

The cooking surface diameter of a barbecue refers to how large the usable cooking surface on the BBQ is, measures in millimetres.

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

Adjustable Thermostat

The Weber Performer Deluxe has an adjustable thermostat, but the Cobb Pro, the Everdure FUSION, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini 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 Performer Deluxe features cool-touch handle, but the Cobb Pro, the Everdure FUSION, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini 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 Performer Deluxe has received a Kagoo Score of 82, however the Cobb Pro scored 74, the Everdure FUSION scored only 60, the KAMADO Joe scored only 60 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored 79.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Cobb only has an average rating of 75.4%, Everdure only has an average rating of 58.2%, KAMADO only has an average rating of 58.4% and tepro only has an average rating of 69.9%.

2 Reasons Against for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

$341 More Expensive

The Weber Performer Deluxe is more expensive than the Cobb Pro by $341 and more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini by $319.

Over One Year Older

The cheapest price that we could find for the Performer Deluxe in the US is $399.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
