2 Reasons For for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Adjustable Thermostat

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

£54 Cheaper

The Steba VG 90 is £410.02 cheaper than the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, £253.93 cheaper than the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L and £53.56 cheaper than the Cobb Pro.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Does Not Have a Lid

The Steba VG 90 does not have a lid, but the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L, the Cobb Pro 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 number of burners/cooking zones on the Steba VG 90 is one (as does the Cobb Pro), but the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L only has three burners/cooking zones. More ...

We do not know the number of burners/cooking zones on the Weber Performer Deluxe. It is possible that it does 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.

49% Smaller Cooking Surface

The Steba VG 90 is a 350 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, whereas the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB scored 70, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L scored 80, the Cobb Pro scored 69 and the Weber Performer Deluxe scored 72.

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 Cobb Pro by three years and older than the Weber Performer Deluxe by four years.

Worse Brand

Steba barbecues have an average rating of only 76.1%, but Cadac has an average rating of 81.5%, Campingaz has an average rating of 95%, Cobb has an average rating of 77.7% and Weber has an average rating of 93.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the VG 90 in the UK is £56.48 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

Cool-Touch Handle

The Weber Performer Deluxe features cool-touch handle, but the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L, the Cobb Pro 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.

Newer by Five Months

The Weber Performer Deluxe was released two years after the Cadac Meridian 3 S/T & SB, released 16 months after the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L, released five months after the Cobb Pro and released four years after the Steba VG 90

A portable barbecue is one that is designed to be easily transported.

Portable BBQs are far easier to move from place to place, and can be set up anywhere - helpful for impromptu picnics!

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Cobb Pro

Significantly Smaller Cooking Area

The Cobb Pro has a cooking area of 735, whereas the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L is a 2,800cm² cooking area barbecue (2,065cm² bigger). More ...

The usable cooking area on a barbecue is a measurement of the physical size of the grill that can be used for cooking food.

A larger surface area means there is more space to cook food on, meaning more food can be cooked at once.

Only One Burner/cooking Zone

The number of burners/cooking zones on the Cobb Pro is one, and so does the Steba VG 90, but the Campingaz 3 Series Classic L only has three burners/cooking zones. More ...
