Q & As

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good barbecue, but a fiddle to build! We bought this to replace an old Beefeater. It's a lovely BBQ, and the grill stream technology seems to work very well. (A little disconcerting to see how much fat drained after one use)... The instruction manual was pretty good. The parts were meant to be numbered, but I suspect someone got bored, as most of ours weren't. And it's pretty fiddly to put together, and you have to twist into some pretty contorted positions. I did it on my own, but it took just under 2 hours. Overall, very happy with the BBQ, and the cooking. It's better than our previous Beefeater. And the construction's now behind me! 01 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as good as I'd hoped The BBQ was used for the first time last night and it cooked the food brilliantly - no complaints there. On the downside the building takes a lot of effort - aside from the grill lid etc, everything has to be built with loads of screws etc (you need at least 2 or 3 hours) The BBQ also states in the instructions that the gas cylinder is not designed to go inside the cupboard (when there is clearly a hole in the side allowing you to put the pipe through?!?) so according to the instructions it must be placed visibly to side of the BBQ - which doesn't look great. Incidentally I ended up buying a smaller gas cylinder and fitting it inside the cupboard which looks much better. (rebel) Also my final gripe is it is black on each side (no lovely brushed steel effect) and so if you look at it from the side it doesn't look as nice. All in all I expected a bit more for my money. It isn't designed brilliantly and the black sides/visible gas cylinder leave me feel a little underwhelmed. 27 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised I was looking to upgrade my worn out two burner BBQ with a larger model. Having read a little about the Grill Stream technology I decided to try it. Assembly was longer than expected, but really quite easy and everything was well numbered up and easy to put together. The end result was very rigid and I was very pleased with the overall quality and finish. Very quick and easy to fire up and use and the Grill Stream technology worked very well with almost all fat drained into the side cup. Very easy to remove the grill plates and put in the dishwasher to clean! Just need decent weather now! 30 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased I deliberated over the choice of my new BBQ and chose this 4 burner model. I was surprised at some comments regarding construction as it only took me 42min whilst on my own! the construction was straight forward and the overall finished BBQ was sturdy. I was unsure of the grill stream idea but I must say that in use it works well and the majority of the fat is collected in the side chamber. The only downside of this type of grill is that there are more sections to clean but so far I have found it easy. which was great after my last BBQ for 30 friends.... Very pleased... 04 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Delivered faulty I had paid for this to be built and when it arrived it was really shoddy workmanship, badly damaged, chipped, bent and bolts not done up. Also if still had the finger prints all over it from whoever built it. The quality of the steel used is very thin and when the driver lifted if off the back of the truck it bent and was damaged even further. We also notice that it would not hold a standard 14kg gas bottle as they are 60cm and the height is 50cm, we will be requesting a refund and having the damaged one collected. 19 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice idea poorly executed Bought this because of the grillstream technology but I was disappointed with the material quality, which was only average in my opinion. This was an expensive item and I expected better. The steel is very thin and paintwork not particularly high quality. It took me over 2 hours to build as well and I am a retired Engineer, so don't expect to be up and running in the 50 minutes or so that was quoted as build time. Also, although the grill stream works reasonably well at preventing flare-ups, the fat does not run into the little catch-pot as described - it drips down and eventually drops onto the large catch tray underneath, so everything ends up covered in grease. But really this is worse than a normal BBQ in this respect, as on a normal unit, most of the grease gets burnt off in the flames, but on this design, the fat is all directed down the grills where it runs all over the place until it finds it's way onto the tray underneath. Overall then I am not particularly impressed, and will be looking to see if there is any way to make improvements and see if it can be made to work as designed. The basic problem seems to be that although the grills do catch and channel all the fat that comes off your cooking, poor engineering of the fat run-off means that it just drips all over the place instead of being channelled away into the little pot. So overall, nice try but no cigar..... 27 May 2014
