2 Reasons For for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Adjustable Thermostat

The Steba VG 90 has an adjustable thermostat, and so does the Ariete 733, but the Big Green Egg Small, the Dancook 7100 and the Klarstein 10028449 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.

Bigger Cooking Surface

The Steba VG 90 is a 350mm cooking surface barbecue. That's 20mm bigger than the Ariete 733 (330mm). 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.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Does Not Have a Lid

The Steba VG 90 does not have a lid (As do the the Ariete 733, the Dancook 7100 and the Klarstein 10028449), whereas the Big Green Egg Small has 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Steba VG 90 has received a Kagoo Score of 65, however the Ariete 733 scored 70, the Big Green Egg Small scored 69 and the Dancook 7100 scored 73.

Less Retailers

Only 1 retailer sell the Steba VG 90, whereas 2 stores sell the Dancook 7100. More ...

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

The Steba VG 90 is older than the Ariete 733 by three years, older than the Big Green Egg Small by five years, older than the Dancook 7100 by two years and older than the Klarstein 10028449 by four years.

Worse Brand

Steba barbecues have an average rating of only 72.6%, whereas Dancook has an average rating of 78.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the VG 90 in the UK is £52.75 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Dancook 7100

Better Kagoo Score

The Dancook 7100 has received a Kagoo Score of 73, whereas the Ariete 733 scored 70, the Big Green Egg Small scored 69, the Klarstein 10028449 scored 64 and the Steba VG 90 scored 65.

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.

One More Award

The Dancook 7100 has received 1 award from an expert review site, but the Ariete 733 has received no awards, the Big Green Egg Small has received no awards, the Klarstein 10028449 has received no awards and the Steba VG 90 has received no awards.

Better Brand

Dancook barbecues have an average rating of 78.5%, but Ariete only has an average rating of 58.2%, Big Green Egg only has an average rating of 71.1% and Steba only has an average rating of 72.6%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Dancook 7100

Does Not Have a Lid

The Dancook 7100 does not have a lid (As do the the Ariete 733, the Klarstein 10028449 and the Steba VG 90), but the Big Green Egg Small does. More ...

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.

Does Not Feature Cool-Touch Handle

The Dancook 7100 does not feature cool-touch handle, but the Ariete 733, the Big Green Egg Small, the Klarstein 10028449 and the Steba VG 90 do. 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.

Older by Over Two Years

The Dancook 7100 is one year older than the Ariete 733, three years older than the Big Green Egg Small and 15 months older than the Klarstein 10028449.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 7100 in the UK is £53.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
