6 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

A Lot Bigger Cooking Surface Diameter

The Weber Performer Deluxe has a cooking surface diameter of 545, however the tepro Crystal Mini is only a 290mm cooking surface diameter barbecue (255mm smaller). 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, however the Cobb Pro, the Dancook 1300, the KAMADO Joe 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 Performer Deluxe features cool-touch handle, however the Cobb Pro, the Dancook 1300, the KAMADO Joe 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 Performer Deluxe has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the Cobb Pro scored 74, the Dancook 1300 scored only 73, the KAMADO Joe scored only 60 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored 79.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, but Cobb only has an average rating of 74.7%, Dancook only has an average rating of 60.7%, KAMADO only has an average rating of 57.9% and tepro only has an average rating of 69.3%.

1 Reason Against for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

More Expensive by $341

The Weber Performer Deluxe is $341 more expensive than the Cobb Pro, $81 more expensive than the Dancook 1300 and $329 more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini.

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.
