Review of "Weber Compact Kettle 47CM"
Mum to Alfie.....now 11 weeks old! Will be back reviewing really soon I hope!!! xxx
We have had a large number of BBQ’s as we have been enjoying this lovely weather. I don’t mind cooking at all but after a long day in the office without any air conditioning, the idea of putting the oven on and having to stand over the warm hob is not my idea of fun, instead we have been using the BBQ and cooking a variety of dishes on there with me tending to prepare a salad or some cous cous to accompany the meal. The BBQ that we have was purchased last year but it is only this year that we have really got some good use out of it, we used it a couple of times and had to put it in the garage but now it’s certainly come into its own. The model that we have is the Weber Compact Kettle BBQ (47cm) and here are my thoughts on t.
Prior to us purchasing this BBQ we used to have a gas one, this went tatty though and we decided to invest in a charcoal one. We looked around and this had all of the specifications that we wanted and at the right price. We got this from a local garden centre; I have to admit that I had not heard of the brand before but was impressed with what I found. The BBQ will cost you around the £75.00 mark. I fully appreciate that you could go and buy a BBQ that was far cheaper, we have done this in the past but we wanted something that would be sturdy and last and we hoped this was the one. It can also be purchased online from Amazon and the World of Power website, both at the same price tag.
The BBQ came well packaged and with a 10 year guarantee, impressive I thought. There was some self-assembling to do which I and the husband managed without to many arguments! After it was built we both noticed that this was a sturdy appliance, even though the 3 legs look quite thin, it holds its own. There are wheels on 2 of the legs so you can wheel this around with ease. We tend to store it in one area and move it out when we are cooking on it.
The BBQ is made from porcelain enamel on a heavy – gauged steel frame. There are crack proof handles and crack proof wheels so I think some thought has really gone into the design of this model, and I am guessing why the price is slightly higher. The BBQ looks quite traditional in design and it is a classic black look that we opted for.
Once you lift the lid, there is a really good cooking area, a grill included. One of the main things that we wanted was an ash catcher and this has a great one. This way we do not have to do lots of cleaning after every use, lazy I know but something we wanted! The BBQ has never let us down and we have been using it on a daily basis lately. I would have no hesitation in recommending it as it works so well for us.
The BBQ has cooked all food well on it, from potatoes to fish to the obvious meat choices. This is great when it is just the 2 of us but also good for when we want to entertain for larger numbers it has also been a great tool.
5 out of 5 from me on this one and a great purchase at that!
