CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score is made up of cooking performance (60%) and ease of use (40%).

Cooking performance score View more details.

The scores for evenness of temperature (cooking steak), evenness with high fat (sausages), low temperature cooking (marinated chicken wings) and roasting a chicken are weighted equally.

Ease of use score View more details.

Made up of cooking (40%), mobility (20%), using the controls (20%) and cleaning (20%).

Evenness score View more details.

We cover the hotplate and grill with steak to see if any areas aren't heated enough, or get too hot and burn the meat.

Evenness with high fat cooking score View more details.

We cover the hotplate and grill with sausages to see if areas are prone to flare-ups from burning fat, which could lead to burnt food.

Roasting score View more details.

We test at moderate temperatures over a long period by roasting a chicken on a baking tray in the centre of the plates with the outside burners on medium heat. The hood is down and the chicken is turned once.

Cleaning score View more details.

How easy the barbecue is to clean.

External temperatures after 60min (°C, controls/handle/hood/sidetables)
Gas consumption (kg/hr) View more details.

Measured with all burners on high.

Brand reliability score View more details.

Scores are taken from our latest brand reliability survey. It does not add to the overall score. The score refers to the brand, not a particular model. NA or Not available means there weren't enough responses for that brand to get a score.

Owner satisfaction score View more details.

Scores are taken from our latest brand reliability survey. When rating satisfaction we ask owners to tell us what they thought of the products they own. We use this information to give each brand an owner satisfaction rating so you can see what people who use the brand day in day out think of them. NA or Not available means there weren't enough responses for that brand to get a score.

'Tested' models should still be available for sale. 'Discontinued' models may still be available on sale or second hand.
