"Some style, no substance-don't be fooled by the AWT endorsement!"

Bought this product from Robert Dyas last week. Got it unpacked and finally got it assembled. First impressions were not good at all. Some elements of the product look and feel quite good, but the steel quality is very poor and very thin on other parts. Try and find a straight bit of steel - you'll be there forever!!. Some parts looked like they were battered with a hammer by a blind man. Secondly I actually don't know how this product ever got safety approval - take a look at the rear of the 'ceramic' plates and you'll see what I mean. You could slice your finger very badly on the back of them - they have completely unfinished jagged edges - a H & S disaster zone. Why only finish them on one side?!

After some persuasion from my partner we did give it a try to see how it performed. Distinctly average and it is such a poor design and so difficult to clean that you'll probably never want to have a barbecue again - not with this one anyway! The drip tray catches nothing due to the design of the main BBQ section - however the sides and bottom of the BBQ collect the fat beautifully. If you enjoy cleaning - go ahead and buy this - you'll love it!

Even the heat protected washers are rubbish - they are brittle and flake before you've even used them. After one use, you wonder how they will not be completely disintegrated after a further use.

AWT, what are you doing putting your name to this piece of c*ap. Had high hopes as it looks great in the photos and some elements look good in real life, but there are many serious problems with this BBQ that make it very bad value. Save yourself time, effort and money and just buy something else. Even a £30 value BBQ would probably be a better purchase.

Aah, two plus points though - they give you a little tool kit to help you assemble it and if you buy the optional BBQ cover you'll at least have one thing that is good quality.
