Check the features you want. Most have work lights, some have night light features (in some you can set also set automatic on/off time for the light), you can also get meat probes if you want. Turntables are pretty much standard.
Compare power output. 950-1100 watts or so is pretty much standard.
Watch how they vent. It pays to look the model up online and read the installation and venting instructions before you buy it. Most will convert from recirculating to rear or top exhaust.
