2 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips HD4419

Adjustable Thermostat

The Philips HD4419 has an adjustable thermostat (as do the Rowenta Optigrill, the Tefal OptiGrill + GC712D and the Weber Q 1400), but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro does 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 Philips HD4419 features cool-touch handle, but the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Rowenta Optigrill, the Tefal OptiGrill + GC712D and the Weber Q 1400 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.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips HD4419

Does Not Have a Lid

The Philips HD4419 does not have a lid, whereas the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, the Rowenta Optigrill, the Tefal OptiGrill + GC712D and the Weber Q 1400 do. 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.

130mm Smaller Cooking Surface

The Philips HD4419 has a cooking surface of 300mm, whereas the Rowenta Optigrill is a 320mm cooking surface barbecue (20mm bigger) and the Weber Q 1400 is a 430mm cooking surface barbecue (130mm bigger). 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 76, however the Tefal OptiGrill + GC712D scored 77 and the Weber Q 1400 scored 80.

More Expensive by $21

The Philips HD4419 is $21 more expensive than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro.

Older by Over Eight Years

The Philips HD4419 is eight years older than the Char-Broil Patio Bistro, seven years older than the Rowenta Optigrill, eight years older than the Tefal OptiGrill + GC712D and seven years older than the Weber Q 1400.

Worse Brand

Philips barbecues have an average rating of only 74.9%, whereas Weber has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the HD4419 in the US is $160.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
