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 545mm, 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 81, whereas the Cobb Pro scored 74, the Dancook 1300 scored 74, the KAMADO Joe scored only 60 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored 78.

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 94.4%, but Cobb only has an average rating of 53.5%, Dancook only has an average rating of 61.4% and tepro only has an average rating of 76.7%.

1 Reason Against for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

More Expensive by $288

The Weber Performer Deluxe is $288 more expensive than the Cobb Pro, $154 more expensive than the Dancook 1300 and $251 more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini.
