1 Reason For for Choosing the Steba VG 90

Adjustable Thermostat

The Steba VG 90 has an adjustable thermostat (as does the Weber Q3000), but the Campingaz 2000020469, the Dancook 7100 and the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 do 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.

8 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), whereas the Campingaz 2000020469, the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 and the Weber Q3000 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.

Only One Burner/cooking Zone

The Steba VG 90 is a one burner/cooking zone barbecue, whereas the Weber Q3000 only has two burners/cooking zones. More ...

We do not know the number of burners/cooking zones on the Campingaz 2000020469, the Dancook 7100 or the Rommelsbacher KG 2020. 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.

280mm Smaller Cooking Surface

The Steba VG 90 has a cooking surface of 350, whereas the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 is a 290mm cooking surface barbecue (60mm smaller) and the Weber Q3000 is a 630mm cooking surface barbecue (280mm 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 Steba VG 90 has only received a Kagoo Score of 65, however the Campingaz 2000020469 scored 79, the Dancook 7100 scored 73 and the Weber Q3000 scored 86.

More Expensive by £19

The Steba VG 90 is £19 more expensive than the Weber Q3000.

Less Retailers

The Steba VG 90 is only stocked by 1 shop, whereas the Dancook 7100 is stocked by 2 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this barbecue remaining in stock.
Older by Over Six Years

The Steba VG 90 is three years older than the Campingaz 2000020469, two years older than the Dancook 7100, three years older than the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 and six years older than the Weber Q3000.

Worse Brand

Steba barbecues have an average rating of only 72.1%, whereas Campingaz has an average rating of 94%, Dancook has an average rating of 80.7% and Weber has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the VG 90 in the UK is £56.42 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Dancook 7100

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this barbecue and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

One More Award

The Dancook 7100 has received 1 award, but the Campingaz 2000020469 has received no awards, the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 has received no awards, the Steba VG 90 has received no awards and the Weber Q3000 has received no awards.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Dancook 7100

Does Not Have a Lid

The Dancook 7100 does not have a lid (As does the the Steba VG 90), but the Campingaz 2000020469, the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 and the Weber Q3000 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.

Does Not Feature Cool-Touch Handle

The Dancook 7100 does not feature cool-touch handle, but the Campingaz 2000020469, the Rommelsbacher KG 2020, the Steba VG 90 and the Weber Q3000 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Dancook 7100 has only received a Kagoo Score of 73, whereas the Campingaz 2000020469 scored 79 and the Weber Q3000 scored 86.

£16 More Expensive

The Dancook 7100 is more expensive than the Weber Q3000 by £16.

Over Three Years Older

The Dancook 7100 is older than the Campingaz 2000020469 by 10 months, older than the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 by 10 months and older than the Weber Q3000 by four years.

Worse Brand

Dancook barbecues have an average rating of only 80.7%, but Campingaz has an average rating of 94% and Weber has an average rating of 95%.

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.

Portable

The Weber Q3000 is a portable barbecue, however the Campingaz 2000020469, the Dancook 7100, the Rommelsbacher KG 2020 and the Steba VG 90 are not. More ...

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!

Two Burners/cooking Zones

The Weber Q3000 is a two burner/cooking zone barbecue, whereas the Steba VG 90 only has one burner/cooking zone. More ...

We do not know the number of burners/cooking zones on the Campingaz 2000020469, the Dancook 7100 or the Rommelsbacher KG 2020. It is possible that they do not have any burners/cooking zones.
