2 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips HD4419

Adjustable Thermostat

The Philips HD4419 has an adjustable thermostat, and so do the Ariete 1914, the Severin PG 2794 and the Weber Q 1400, however the Char-Broil Patio Bistro does 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 Philips HD4419 features cool-touch handle, however the Ariete 1914, the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Severin PG 2794 and the Weber Q 1400 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.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips HD4419

Does Not Have a Lid

The Philips HD4419 does not have a lid (As does the the Severin PG 2794), but the Ariete 1914, the Char-Broil Patio Bistro and the Weber Q 1400 have this feature. 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.

33% Smaller Cooking Surface

The Philips HD4419 is a 300mm cooking surface barbecue. That's 40mm smaller than the Ariete 1914 (340mm), 145mm smaller than the Severin PG 2794 (445mm) and 130mm smaller than the Weber Q 1400 (430mm). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Philips HD4419 has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Weber Q 1400 scored 81.

$13 More Expensive

The Philips HD4419 is more expensive than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro by $13.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 shop sell the Philips HD4419, but 3 shops sell the Severin PG 2794. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this barbecue, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Over Eight Years Older

The Philips HD4419 is older than the Ariete 1914 by seven years, older than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro by nine years, older than the Severin PG 2794 by seven years and older than the Weber Q 1400 by seven years.

Worse Brand

Philips barbecues have an average rating of only 51.7%, but Char-Broil has an average rating of 66.3% and Weber has an average rating of 94.4%.

The cheapest price that we found for the HD4419 in the United States is $152.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

Warming Rack

The Char-Broil Patio Bistro has a warming rack, but the Ariete 1914, the Philips HD4419, the Severin PG 2794 and the Weber Q 1400 do not have this feature. More ...
