the 750 will work but take about 10 minutes, the 1000w will knock off a few minutes

1000W would be a better bet and theres not going to be a noticeable price difference. 500w was a complete failure btw.

Get the coil version too, it works better.

It takes around 10 minutes to light up three Coconaras on a 1200W burner, I wouldn't go for anything lower than 1000W.

Why is the coil version so much better? I'm assuming its airflow or something?! Do they make a cheap coil one thats stronger than a 1000w?

Because with a coil, the coals are in direct contact with the heating element and yes (see my previous post).
