Lidl is great, but I struggle to spend £40.00 there.
​t&c states it has to be 'original voucher'. How will that work when you will have to print a copy?

I always print mine, and never had any problem :) Only once when I printed it in a4 size. Shop menager, had a look and told me as long as it's scan it's fine. :)

I have one from a year or so back too. I think one is better off getting the Philips when ever it drops down to £70 mark. I think the Philips cooks better.
The grilled tray kept coming loose but now have managed to tighten it. Also the non-stick coat appears to be coming off. I would return it if I could get my money back.
Why don't you just return it to Lidl for a refund/replacement then? oO

Neen a week over a year ago so they will no longer deal with it at store. Will refer to Silvercrest to resolve issues under warranty.

Here was the deal from last year:

Are these any good for cooking sausages, or is it a pain if you need to keep turning the sausages over every few minutes?
I'm hooked on the fact that fat drains away.
In Lidl Ireland they have this same offer. They also have an AIR FRYER available on the same day in Ireland and I assume in England too. These are great for sausages/goujons/chips and no oil required.

Good deal for the money, but I agree go for the one with detachable plates.
They are much easier to clean.
I regret buying mine as it's hard to clean. I clean mine immediately whilst still hot, however mine has a black mark I can't get off.
Providing you put the drip tray in place, it should not make a mess.

Non-stick easy to clean plates for fat reduced cooking - fat reducing, sure. Easy to clean- HELL NO! It's far from easy to clean, the fat drips EVERYWHERE on table, impossible to wash it up, the fat sticks soo bad on them its not even funny.

It does cooks rather fast and the taste isn't too bad either, but the mess is just insane!
You will use it for a couple of times and than it will just sit on your table using up space because you won't want all the hassle that comes with it.


I have this model from last time it was on offer and I agree that fat goes all over the worktop. Nowhere near as good as a larger model. This one can be cleaned quite easily under the tap though as its quite small!

Just bought one to strip a bench and not sure if I should open or return it.
It says 24000 rpm - is that good? - every other one I have seen is between 5000 - 12000rpm
Is the 270w powerful enough?
Am I better off with this one from Screwfix?
Hope someone can advise
The one that you've linked to is more powerful and has variable speed.
As I've mentioned, these are both things that I miss in the Lidl one that I have in a more expensive model.
However, the Lidl sander *is* significantly cheaper, so still represents good value for money I feel.

Thanks for the response. I think the extra power and variable speed are worth the extra £7 and gives flexibility. I will return the Lidl one even though it does come with a 3 year warranty as opposed to 1 year. Voted hot all the same.

Briquettes=cold
Threw them away last year

prefer briquettes to lumpwood as find it easier to manage temprature and lengthy cooks , and these arn't that bad as long as you cook on them when they are ready ( chimney being Ideal I find )

lumpwood however is easier for quickness
This is the regular price, same as ALDI. Hardly a deal.
With the "free" it is worth that price, but not a deal, the quality is pretty poor, won't last long at all, cheap for a reason.

Save yourself some money and instead drop a couple of dog turds into your bin bags when disposing off confidential documents. Please note that when disposing of really important documents, I sometimes supplement the animal waste with human faeces for extra protection.
This will deter even the most determined thief from rummaging through your rubbish hunting for personal information.

Odd product, a CHUNKY passata! Seeing as passata means "passed" (as through a sieve).

Didn't realise this comes with Basil too. Not much use unless you are specifically cooking something with basil

The usual ones are from Italy too:

I think these are imported from Italy- maybe thats why they seem expensive.

No bargain here. Aldi passata is 35p for a 500g pack, I use it fairly often.
Passata is 3 for a pound in farmfoods and cheaper than 99p elsewhere too
Isn't Passata always around this price anyway, or is this an extra special one?

Forget instant lighting charcoal. Too many chemicals in there. Get some lump wood charcoal and use a Weber chimney starter. http://www.weber.com/weber-nation/grill-skills/mastering-smoke/using-a-chimney-starter/using-a-chimney-starter
If you don't want to spend £20 on it, Tesco or home base sell the same type for a fiver. Best way to start a real BBQ without any chemicals.

Indeed the better and more economical method however by the time your BBQ coals are ready any lighting fluids have burnt off. Briquettes however I'm always unsure about because there not natural pieces of charcoal.

Good price. Ok so I'm new to the charcoal BBQ game, been using a gas BBQ for years but have got myself a charcoal oil drum BBQ now as I like the smell n taste of the food cooked on one of them compared to the gas BBQ. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between lumpwood charcoal and charcoal briquettes? I've got both and realise the briquettes burn slower so last longer hence use less amount compared to lumpwood which catches alight much quicker but I realise I have to always top up more frequently. Apologies if it's an amateur question to ask.
Currently Home Bargains in Beckton sell both types in 5kg bags for £2.99 and today I also saw Wilko have 5kg bag of briquettes for £3.50

The lumpwood charcoal is better than standard charcoal as it burns that little longer. Instant like makes it easier to light I guess 8) the briquettes burn for a lot longer but can be a pain to light at times. Easiest suggestion for a noob would be to cover the necessary area with instant light lumpwood (for an oil drum bbq) presumably 2 x 1kg bags, once that's almost fully lit, chuck on the briquettes, that way they'll light much easier without any additional lighter fluid necessary, that way you'll get a good burning hit for a couple of hours. (you could break some fire lighters and sprinkle over the briquettes, but it's really not needed, unless you're running late :D

Hope that helps 8)


Thank you ever so much for the tip. Yes I realised yesterday briquettes are very difficult to set alight and used a lot of fluid so this will certainly help, will try it out today ;)
Also remember, these bags are 2 for £7 which I noticed a couple months back, but ever since, the sign has disappeared from the store, but I verified it week before last.
