Q & As

Rated 1.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor fixtures wing nuts replaced some nuts.the wing nuts were poor quality and some did not fit screws. some nuts were missing therefore could not assemble certain parts. i should have taken more notice of previous reviews,obviously JL have not sorted the supplier problem. 20 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I originally sent a review on the day this item was collected, but that appears not to have been noticed by John Lewis, so I'll make another attempt to draw their attention to this complaint. I have always been happy to by items from JL without having seen them in the flesh, JL's reputation for quality has always been sufficient until now. This BBQ is a poor quality, second rate product (I should have paid more attention to the previous revues which were poor). The fixing nuts are the cheapest pressed steel wingnuts it is possible to obtain, they make assembly unnecessarily awkward and leave a very poor finish to the product. The charcoal grill is flimsy and unlikely to be very robust in use. Despite being a retired mechanical engineer, I was unable to align the leg supports in a manner which allowed the ash catcher support to be fitted without distorting, this made the ash catcher impossible to attach securely. There are several small areas of damage to the enamel of the bowl and lid, some of which have been poorly covered over with black paint, which is unlikely to withstand the heat generated when in use. I have repacked the item and will be returning it as it is not of the quality that I was expecting from JL. 11 August 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Overall not impressed Delivered without the right parts. Bottom shelf is not secure after installation. Grill for charcoal bent from heat after first use. Not impressed. 28 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shockingly poor by John Lewis Very disappointed how poor JL's own brand BBQ is. Firstly it came with the wrong pack of screws, then I noticed enamel chipped and damaged around the lip of the main bowl. Unable to rearrange redelivery in a suitable time I've driven ages to Bluewater to return the product, got home and amazed to find the second BBQ has exactly the same problem! I certainly would recommend anyone buying this double checks all contents in store and doesn't buy online unless prepared to return and wait for another. It will also make me think twice about buying JL own brand for anything else! 03 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Having started to build the BBQ found that it came with the wrong pack of screws. Not the high standards I expect from John Lewis. 25 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Charcoal Barbeque Having looked at buying a weber barbeque I settled on a John Lewis one, as it seemed very similar and was less than half the price. While it has only been used a couple of times I have not been disappointed with it. Like other barbeques it required self assembly which took about 20 mins, but was not difficult. Overall very happy with barbeque, now just waiting for summer ..... 05 April 2014
