Test category Barbecue:

The most important category in our grill test is the grill rating. Because what brings a top note in the operation, if the grid does not get a decent heat? At this point, an all-clear: With measured 336 to 462 ° C, all gas grills are more than hot enough for every grill good and every style of cooking. There are still differences in quality throughout the world.

Barbecuing is really just about two things: temperature and consistency. For our tests, we could have smothered kilos of pigs and cattle in all formats. However, we believe that we can make the same statements about the quality of a grill with simpler, more technical and more animal-friendly means – not least because each piece of meat is different and delivers different results. Our measurement methods are repeatable.

The first criterion for grilling evaluation is the heat-up time: Gas grills quickly reach high temperatures, but there are also some lame models. With a thermometer on the grid, we determine how long a grill needs from 20 to 200, 250, 300 and 350 degrees. Fast equipment (Proficook GG 1059, Clatronic GG 3590 and Taino Red 4 + 1) packs the first hurdle within a minute, while particularly lame devices with thick rust (Char-Broil Performance 340 B, Weber Q 2000) for only three to four Minutes are needed. In general, we advise you to give each grill ten minutes regardless of its speed.

As a result, not only the rust, but also the cooking chamber is hot. At 300 ° C, the range is much further apart. However, temperatures above 300 ° C are rarely recommended for barbecues. Instead, high temperatures can be practically used for cleaning: turn on the burner, wait a while, brush off the rust, and you’re done.

But the high temperatures also mean: Caution when grilling. How to provide sufficient safety when using a gas grill is explained in this article.

Furthermore, we check the heat distribution on the heated grill grate with a simple but effective method: We place toast bread slices on the entire surface. (See all the images of the measurement in the photo gallery.) Grills with great distribution do not necessarily have to heat every square inch of the grill surface, but achieve consistent results – whether the sausage is in the middle or on the edge.

Brilliant results are offered by the Weber Q 2000 and the outdoor manager City 420G. Incidentally, we also recommend the toast method for your barbecue at home – so you can learn exactly where the hot and cold spots are. (You can find more tips for flawless grilling here.) Other grilling qualities have been recorded in figures such as the total burner output in kW, whether indirect grilling without extra accessories is possible, the availability of a turbo surface, the size of the grilling surface and the lid height.

For aesthetes and friends of roasted aromas, one last value is important: the heat storage capacity. Basically, a massive rust can emit high temperatures more uniformly than a light and enamelled component. That’s why the Weber Q 2000 with cast iron grate and a high heat storage capacity of 3.29 g / cm² also draws the most beautiful pattern into the grilled food.

Sample example: The Weber Q 2000 burns almost perfect grooves into the toast.

Test category: Equipment of the gas grill

Even for purists among the grill masters a good equipment rating is not unimportant – because here counts, for example, the number of available burners purely. For the most part, we rate and weight the available equipment. This includes, for example, the type of rust, whether components are double-walled and thus better isolate heat, and whether there are shelves, side cookers, a thermometer or other special equipment.

Most attention in this category is dedicated to build quality. Ten CHIP colleagues took a close look at each grill and put their subjective impressions into numbers. If the gag wobbles, the grill is stable, does the material like it and is the lid tight? The average of the ratings represents the processing grade. The Weber Grill also wins in this sub-prize: It is the only one to win the rating “very good”.

Nothing should wobble: Especially with long-term used devices such as grills, good workmanship is important. Picture: Rian Voss / CHIP

Test category: Handling

The handling rating covers everything that makes the barbecue experience more enjoyable. These include, for example, the construction time: Unsurprisingly, the smaller grills are ready for use faster than the sweeping competitors. We also rate a barbecue tongs holder, transport rollers and integrated piezo or even a battery ignition (Char-Broil) positively. (By the way: If you need barbecue tongs and other accessories for your new barbecue, you will find a comprehensive selection of recommended products.)

Ultimately, the weight for some people may play a role: some barbecues weigh little (from around 10 kilograms) and can easily be transported from the garage once around the house. Other grills are rather battleship character (30 to 40 kilograms) and should remain parked despite mobile subset, where they are used.
