Nexgrill 2-Burner Grill is a portable model that despite its size, provides 16,000 BTUs of thermal energy, about 8,000 BTUs than the Weber Q1200.
The Nexgrill model has a special design with a combustion chamber that heats evenly across its 184 square inches of total cooking area.
With a standard barbecue tank, the Nexgrill tabletop grill has the ability to make meals for two people or a family.
Unlike the Weber model, the Nexgrill model has two burners: each producing 16,000 BTU in a cooking grate construction of 304 stainless steel.
However, the Nexgrill comes with just one-year of warranty, where Weber Q1200 has up to 5 years.
Incredibly portable and stylish, the Weber Q1200 Liquid Propane Grill should be at the top of your priority list if style and portability are the main attributes you are looking for in a gas grill.
According to users, it features a captivating, colorful, and unique design of the casing and support, which makes it ideal for terraces or apartment balconies.
Its compact design also means that it can be easily transported on your camping or car trips. And the incorporation of Weber’s portable cart makes it even more practical and stylish.
When the device is removed from the cart, it lands perfectly on the beach, on a campsite, or a table. This is unlike the Nexgrill model which is only tabletop designed.
Along with the sophisticated design that the Weber Q1200 enjoys, it also uses durable quality materials – sturdy porcelain enameled cast iron grate and a cast aluminum cover.
The Nexgrill model however is mainly designed with stainless steel. But the Weber product is quite heavy, which may be due to the ultra-rugged materials used in its production.
The burner tubes are also made from a single piece of steel, making them more durable and more resistant to combustion and rust. Also, the burner valve has infinite settings, allowing for precise adjustment of heat levels.
And when it comes to cooking, the Weber Q1200 gas grill is very easy to use and maintain because it requires little maintenance.
It is amazing how simple, straightforward and easy to use the portable gas grill is. Besides the fact that it heats up extremely quickly, it also maintains a constant temperature.
The only downside we noticed is the appliance’s lowest flame, which is not low enough to maintain a hot setting. However, where the Nexgrill product aces Weber’s is the higher thermal energy produced.
The Weber Q1200 is a barbecue that is both quite powerful and very easy to use. Both the Nexgrill and Weber models are generally offered at a price of around $300, more or less on merchant sites.
It is first of all the design of this barbecue that will surprise you: with its folding handles and its very rounded shape, it is quite original.
We’d say the Nexgrill 2-burner has a construction that suits indoor decor while the Weber model has a design most suited for outdoor use.
With the Weber grill, you will be able to choose between eight different colors, which are all sold at similar prices and quite successful. But beyond the aesthetics, the appearance has also been designed with the practical side in mind.
The ease of use of the Weber models is almost disconcerting: the barbecue is delivered already assembled and the ignition is done with a simple button.
The temperature is displayed on a thermometer directly integrated into the lid. A secure device is provided to collect the grease in a drip tray while preventing it from catching fire.
The cooking plates are made of cast iron and covered with a porcelain coating. You will therefore have to remember to clean them after each use, but they are solid and transmit heat well.
As for the object itself, it is in cast aluminum: the overall quality of finish is very satisfactory. The Nexgrill model is however easier to clean than the Weber product.
The cooking surface of the Weber is not gigantic. But at 189 square inches, it beats Nexgrill’s 184 square inches. The former is reasonable without being very tall. If you are cooking for an event you might feel a bit limited by space.
The displayed power is 8,500 BTU per hour. In practice, the cooking is quite quick and tasty. But the Nexgrillhas 16,000 BTU.
Weber Q1200 comes with 5 years for the cooking box, cover, burner tubes, grates, plastic components; 2 years for all other parts. The Nexgrill 2 Burner model only comes with a 1-year warranty.
Therefore, we think the Weber Q1200 will be one of the best possible choices if you plan to use your barbecue exclusively when traveling, in a park, or when camping.
It is very easy to transport, does not require too much maintenance, and knows how to be efficient. The Nexgrill model however is ideal for indoor use.
Nonetheless, both have good value for money, even if they remain difficult to access for small budgets.
