1 Reason For for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Adjustable Thermostat

The Steba VG 90 has an adjustable thermostat, and so does the Weber Performer Deluxe, whereas the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L and the Dancook 7100 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.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Does Not Have a Lid

The Steba VG 90 does not have a lid (As does the the Dancook 7100), however the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L and the Weber Performer Deluxe 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.

Two Less Burners/cooking Zones

The Steba VG 90 has one burner/cooking zone, however the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L only has 3zone(s) burners/cooking zones. More ...

We do not know the number of burners/cooking zones on the Dancook 7100 or the Weber Performer Deluxe. It is possible that they do not have any burners/cooking zones.

The number of burners / cooking zones refers to the quantity of different cooking zones that the barbecue has for cooking different types of food.

More burners and cooking zones means more different areas to cook food on. This is especially helpful if you're trying to cook meat, fish and vegetable dishes all at the same time, and want to separate them out.

Smaller Cooking Surface

The Steba VG 90 is a 350mm cooking surface barbecue. That's 330mm smaller than the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB (680mm) and 260mm smaller than the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L (610mm). 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 Steba VG 90 has only received a Kagoo Score of 65, but the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB scored 70, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L scored 79, the Dancook 7100 scored 73 and the Weber Performer Deluxe scored 76.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the Steba VG 90, however 2 sellers sell the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L, 2 sellers sell the Dancook 7100 and 2 stores sell the Weber Performer Deluxe. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this barbecue remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Three Years Older

The Steba VG 90 is older than the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB by 20 months, older than the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L by two years, older than the Dancook 7100 by two years and older than the Weber Performer Deluxe by four years.

Worse Brand

Steba barbecues have an average rating of only 72.6%, however Cadac has an average rating of 78.2%, Campingaz has an average rating of 87.4%, Dancook has an average rating of 78.5% and Weber has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the VG 90 in the UK is £56.85 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Performer Deluxe

Lid

The Weber Performer Deluxe has a lid (as do the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB and the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L), however the Dancook 7100 and the Steba VG 90 do not have this feature. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

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 Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L, the Dancook 7100 and the Steba VG 90 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.

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.

Newer by 16 Months

The Weber Performer Deluxe is two years newer than the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, 17 months newer than the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L, 16 months newer than the Dancook 7100 and four years newer than the Steba VG 90

Better Brand
