Assembly: This BBQ came in a flat pack which contained clear and simply instructions. It took me roughly 30 mins from start to finish working up a decent hunger while i motored along. I'd be fairly confident that anyone who is capable of following instructions would be able to assemble this with all the nuts, bolts screws and fittings included. The pack didnt include screw driver or tools so beware before you buy that a tool kit will be necessary.
Design: The BBQ is supported by 4 legs of which 2 are on wheels which make the BBQ really easy to manouvre and move around. In any event it is a pretty light unit. The max grill is reasonably large containing 2 gas-powered burners and with a grill over the top. While the BBQ isnt the biggest by far it has ample room for burgers, steak and sausages to feed the family. he grill itself is kind of similar to a barrell which opens in half. the top acting as a lid for the BBQ keeping the heat in. The BBQ also has 2 side rest tables ideal for sauces, tools etc or a nice cold can of beer while the food cooks. The heat of the burners can be adjusted by turnable knobs trning the flames on the burners up and down.
The Good: This BBQ is realy easy to use, quick to set up and all is required is a gas bottle available from home and garden centres or buiding merchants to use. The gas also lasts surprisingly longer than expected. I found generally within 5 minutes i could be cooking a feast so this is definitely quick and easy to use. The cook quality also seems pretty good on general although i tend to air on the side of caution and burn everything on a BBQ to a crisp.
The Bad: The metal BBQ grill and lid get hot being made from metal. While this wasnt a problem for me just a word of warning is you have young children. The fat from the meat also drops down onto the metal and flames and on a few occassions has ignited flames. Ideal for flame grilled burgers but also ideal for singe-ing your hair eyebrows etc. In this sense id say the design can or could be improved for saftey in mind.
Overall, I'd say this is a good BBQ in my opinion, yes it isnt cheap but then again its not as expensive as alternative makes and models out there. Its quick and easy to use and most of the time cooks and mean BBQ. It seems quite durable after initial use but the owner BBQ-er will need to take caution using. Would i recommend this? In my opinion yes! Put another shrimp on the Barbie!!
During the recent sunny spell i thought i'd treat myself to a BBQ and purchased the Outback 2 burner Omega 200 gas powered BBQ from the local Homebase store. I paid £129.99 for the BBQ which i've now found out can be purchased online for slightly cheaper at around £120 from places such as Amazon, Ebay etc.
