In this paper we establish a comparison result for solutions to the problem

$\mbox{minimize}\int_\Omega l(||\nabla u(x)||)dx $

or to the problem

$\mbox{minimize}\int_\Omega l(\gamma_C(\nabla u(x))dx, $

for a special class of solutions, without assuming neither smoothness nor strict convexity of $l$.
