Now, where to start.
I would say I have an impossible to resist compulsion to research items before I purchase. I spent hours on amazon and other sites, reading every spec and review. Comparing every aspect.
In the end it came down to this, and the Cosmo 6 burner (also available from amazon). I chose this because of the enamelled grills and the fact half is a griddle plate.
I think, without doubt I made the right choice.
I see a lot of complaints about people struggling to put it together etc, but I managed to do it in sub 2 hours with a 4 week old Baby and a hyperactive 6 year old to manage as the wife was out and I just could not resist the shining stainless steel.
In truth, I think somewhere between an hour and two would be fair.
Maybe want to use some of your own tools. Pipe grips, ratchet spanner etc were extremely useful for me. However, it can definitely be put together with the tools it comes with, although it just will require more effort and patience.
I guess there is a lot of parts, which may seem daunting to someone whom is not technically astute.
Connecting the gas hose up, little tip.
Put the hose in some boiling water for a few minutes, it’ll become more plyable and you’ll slide it on the nozzles much easier.
Once it’s together. It is truly stunning to look at. Really you would not expect to get something of this calibre for the money.
Now, onto actual performance as a BBQ.
I have held off writing this review, as I wanted to get a few good goes out of it. Cooking a variety of food. So, I’ve had this since the beginning of April.
I am extremely impressed. Most of the time I will only use two burners. I think this bbq could manage a huge cook out no problem.
The speed in which it heats up is incredible.
250c+ achieved in a matter of minutes.
Confirmed this with another thermometer as wasn’t sure on the one provided. However, it is surprisingly accurate.
I see some people complaining of fat dripping etc. Being hard to clean.
I honestly don’t see how. It’s an absolute dream. I keep a degreaser spray under with a scotch pad, and some kitchen roll. The main body etc cleans up in seconds.
The grills, rack and drip tray really don’t require much work at all to clean.
I ordered the grill brush pro
Take the grills to the sink. Quick going over with that. Then a wash and wipe with some fairy and they’re like brand new again. They will fit in a dish washer, but they’re extremely heavy, and to be honest because of the material they are very easy to clean. Wouldn’t see why you would bother.
All in all, I really have to say I am blown away with this for the price. It easily competes with BBQs 3 or 4 times it’s price. It has everything you really need.
Everyone whom has seen it, comments.
You can’t go wrong. It’s all good quality so should last for many years.
So please, save yourself the hours and days that I invested reading and researching, and just buy this.
This cover. Fits perfect.
