All BBQs and Grills Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2020
Your assumption that they have only eaten supermarket meat or McDonald’s is quite rude, however politely you suggest it.
Charcoal definitely! (or braai wood as we use!)
Whats the point of having a BBQ if your using gas? May as well use the oven in the kitchen. Charcoal 100%
I've had one. Hence why I commented on the post. I couldn't comment which is better if I've only had 1.
It’s an ugly looking microwave for sure!
Any feedbacks on this brand and model?
It’s available at Argos in Sainsbury’s locations- Brentwood, Hornchurch and Chafford for order now and collect
Out of stock everywhere for me
The Tefal GC450B27 also opens up flat and can be used as an "electric bbq" essentially. It has detachable plates that can be soaked or put in the dishwasher. Reviews seem good. It is more expensive (at around the £80 mark - but one site sells it at £69.95) than this deal though.
Yes, that really is something that they should have now, I recall many years ago buying a George Foreman grill, that was aweful to clean, I would have thought they would have moved on as that was 20 years ago. I am looking for something that I can take outside as well rather than light up the barbecue, any sugvgestions please
I have a George Foreman one and it is a bit of a pain to clean it, especially after cooking greasy meat (e.g. burgers). I have been looking at a grill with removable plates and the Tefal GC450B27 is an example.
Then we need an experienced user to tell us how to get it down properly now. If cleaning is the key factor, then I will go buy other detachable ones
From the description - Removable plates: No Only the drip tray is shown as going into a dishwasher.
Where did you buy yours from? If it was a decent official Weber seller, it would be worth contacting them for assistance. About 6 years ago, I bought a Weber thermometer from wowbbq and after less than 2 years it started giving crazy readings. I contacted wowbbq and they arranged a replacement probe from Weber. After a while, I experienced the same issue with the new probe, and wowbbq then arranged a replacement thermometer from Weber (newer model as mine had been discontinued). The new model developed a fault, I can't remember after how long this was, but it would have been months or a year, and wowbbq arranged another replacement thermometer (another different model). The 3rd model was the best Weber thermometer I have used, but it also developed an issue at some point. Again I went back to wowbbq and told them I was going to give up on Weber and try a different manufacturer. I was then sent an igrill mini thermometer and, I can't remember for sure, but think I was also refunded for the original thermometer. I have only used the igrill mini about 5 times, as I don't like the hassle of having to enable GPS on my phone just to use it, and got fed up with it losing connectivity when I went inside my house. But the aftersales service at wowbbq and warranty from Weber were both fantastic over the 3 or 4 years I was experiencing these problems.
Sorry I missed your reply - I haven't got a suggestion I'm afraid, I'm just aware generally there are other options.
Why stop over winter? Use mine at least an average of 3 times a week including winter. Something quite nice about standing in front of the BBQ with a beer a beer can chicken sizzling in the BBQ looking at the stars. Shame is it appears that Weber quality and customer service have diminished as well. I can't see the legs on my BBQ being any good after 7.5 year as the paints rusting off them after less than one ;(
Have had my Weber gas bbq for 15 years and it is still fantastic
They do payment installments if your skint mate
We purchased one today. Reserved until we got there. Bargain <3
DHL are no better. They don’t ring the doorbell and leave a card saying your delivery is in a safe place. I don’t class my yucky bin a safe place. Got the items redelivered and they put them in my recycle bin instead. I get they’re underpaid and too many parcels to deliver but no excuse for bad service.
I've been given 2 dates since they delivered the part order 4th May and 14th May but nothing turned up? Had a new message from DHL yesterday advising a delivery was imminent and to follow link to book but the link advises the order was cancelled on 14 May and have got no answer from multiple emails over the last month and a half just an automated response email really is the worst company I have ever bought anything from (mad)
I’ve received part of my order but I didn’t get a message in advance and the guy didn’t even ring the doorbell. Fortunately I have Ring so the motion chime went off and realised it was Homebase/Manufacturer delivery driver. I’m still expecting a delivery via DHL on Friday 22nd... it’s Saturday but they still haven’t updated it.
I remember having to pay in advance for a tap that needed to be ordered in to store. No call for weeks it had arrived so I decided to go in and ask. The advisor said it had arrived but couldn’t find it. I found my taps that I had paid for on the shop floor for sale again.
Yes i did eventually
I think you can register this with ooni for extra warranty no matter where you buy from
I havent heard back from them. I have one from Ooni preordered but thats coming in August. If this one comes I'll cancel my Ooni order (even if it does come with 3 year warranty).
Did you get a order confirmation after the purchase?
Is anyone aware of any other retailers with stock? Happy to pay the usual retail price. Cheers

I’m thinking along similar lines, but can’t even get something like this deal as there’s no stock anywhere near me! Local Asda has a decent looking thing but it’s £199
I’m in a similar position, ideally wanting something £250-£300ish but willing to spend a bit more if it’s worth it. Anything from a reputable brand and half decent size is +£500, I guess it’s the wrong time of year to get any bargains, might just get something like this to cover the summer and see what deals pop up at the end of summer
I’m in the market for a mid-range bbq. Don’t want to be spending heaps but happy to pay a fair amount for one that will last a few years- anyone seen anything decent
I don't agree, I've used my fixed plate grill for years, non-stick remains intact. The trick is to clean whilst plates still warm - I put wet kitchen roll on first, after grill has been off for a couple of minutes, then really easy to clean, as above.
Going for this one. The other one seems to be longer but smaller in depth. Also this seems to have more useful area to use.
£35 new to Amazon 1st July 2019. £38 new to Amazon 21st June 2016.
Get bigger ones folks, they smaller in cooking space especially if you have few people to cater.
One trick is to wipe down/clean straight away don't let it dry. Also heating it again before cleaning helps but it's not as good as cleaning straight away.
Have seen it and ordered them to put it out!
No carbon monoxide is also extremely flammable!
Mine arrived today- been after a lotus for a while for (the back/cockpit of) our sailing boat so this is hubby’s birthday present. Impressed at how solid it feels. Also ordered a ~£4 USB battery eliminator on eBay so we can hook it up to a power bank (we have various high capacity solar charged ones etc for in the Med) plus the external cable will mean if batteries die whilst the barbecue is in use we can switch out the power bank rather than need to turn it upside down to change AA batteries
And along those lines - it seems you might as well get one of the cheap square gas stoves that do a decent job and a griddle pan.
You should post that as a separate deal ;)
No they don't
the instructions are here https://www.lidl-service.com/static/393409470/281147_En.pdf Looking at them with some minor modification I think you could take the legs off and fold those onto the shelf and keep the top complete. remove 8 fastenings at the top the 4 at the shelf then loosen the other 4 at the shelf to fold the legs in. flip the top over to sit over the now folded top shelf and handle. Not back to flat pack but would take up less room.
Do you know when people pinch trolleys they actually cost over a grand each the bigger ones.
me neither can't be bothered blocked so many of my deals so if they don't want 'em I wont post em (y)
are these still available in Lidl?
Just left them, the legs don't get too hot.
What did you use to remove the warning stickers from the legs?
Used it on whole chicken yesterday, worked a treat
That is genius, thank you!
lol have you seen how *small* it is?
Ahem... Lidl got that covered too https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/p/bbq-essentials/grillchef-mini-kamado-ceramic-charcoal-barbecue/p31935
A supermarket pizza is designed to be cooked at the lower temperatures of a home oven but for a longer time - 10-15 mins maybe. A pizza cooked in a 400c oven will cook in literally 60-90 seconds and have a completely different texture and taste (i.e a pizza from Franco Manca vs a Dr Oetker). Different pizzas for different ovens. Any pizza you get out of this BBQ one will be similar to what you can cook in a normal oven - hence why it's not worth wasting £40 on. Yeah seems their supply has been hit by coronavirus combined with an increase in demand I expect. Some used ones are actually going for more than RRP on Ebay! Tempted to sell my Uuni 3 and get one of the newer models, but I might be without an oven for a while... hmm could give this lidl one a go to tide me over (excited)
Where from? They have been out of stock in most places since the lockdown and anywhere with stuck is over £300. Kinda gutted I missed the last deal on the ooni as I was thinking about it but it dropped out of stock before I clicked buy.
SAVE10 not working... Expire?
how the F they give 2 year warranty? after one summer and winter use .
You don't understand do you...
Sorry, the scrap man took it this morning which is a shame as the valves were working fine, i kept the hoses as they might come in handy for future spares.
It’s still a good deal nonetheless
I select the largest blocks of good quality charcoal and get the temperature to stabalise as quickly as possible. I agree that topping up is a pain but with care the deflector and metalwork will come out in one go (flip the 'hatch' and use the claw tool along with big tongs).
Just as well the weather is good to get a bit of heat (lol) . Ive been considering it for a while and ordered one. This was the lowest in price that its been since I've been looking. The feedback has been very helpful. I know people are saying that's its small but that suits me for the majority of the time I will use it. Thanks
Nice to see some good feedback on this deal here. I guess a few people might see the price and assume it is a poor deal without having too much knowledge of the product or how it compares. Hopefully the feedback here was useful for you @ALav
@Funkoid Larger cooks really, dont get me wrong you can manage, but say 4 burgers and 8 streaky bacon for a burger would be a challenge, likewise 4 steaks or Bass. If fillet or chops you'll be fine. I tend to cook meals on a BBQ, a while full english, fajitas, roast meat and veg etc and thats the limitations.That being said, I will prob pick up a Lidl one if I can as for me and the wife, itll be amazing. I have an OONI for pizza so it will just be my BBQ for searing and prob try and use as a Tandori. £80 is much more palatable than £400. I would like a KJ classic at some point, but cant justify it at the moment.
I have a joe junior and the one issue I've always had is that charcoal bowl seems far too small to accommodate enough fuel for a long smoke, and to top it up you basically have to disassemble the whole thing. I'd love to know how you've managed to cook brisket on one. Also how anyone can call this "portable" I do not know. Even at the relatively tiny size it still weighs a ton.
I agree with you. A BBQ for £10/£20 will do the same job or even better than this one. No point spending £37 on this
Heat for what it is for the price. Obviously people might not agree but some will and that's their personal choice.
This debate got slightly heated!
Look, I absolutely understand the money factor and agree that everyone should decide whats best for his or her situation but for that sort of money I am not convinced that this is a good deal. Why not go cheaper if you don’t want to spend much? A £10 BBQ will be good for a couple of years when you take care of it. I mean it doesn’t seem that there are too many on this deal who would agree with the price tag of £37 for this BBQ don’t you think?
I really like Donald Russell for things like Lamb Shank and larger cuts of meat (and only when on offer). However for burgers and sausages I don't think you can beat Aldi (esp their Ultimate burger) on a bbq. Fantastic over a bit of charcoal.
Use code sc2002 for this pack at £29.90
Expensive but I have to admit, their meat is lovely. You actually can tell the difference between supermarket meat and this. Playing with the dry ice in the sink also fun though it comes with instructions to not do this. Offer on regularly, don’t need codes as there’s always some offer on the website.
Grass fed? I doubt it.
Smokeless... Even when my Mrs is using it? Find that hard to belive (skeptical)
The main reason i never mentioned this video in a earlier comment i made about this grill, it looks like a imported German/French model as i cannot find much about it in the uk and that's strange.
Looks like a nightmare to clean
Can I be your neighbour? (cheeky)
That's just garbage Tefal self promotion
Great for camping with hookup, check out B/M stores cheap
Great for toasties and fried eggs! X
A lot of similar complaints saying the top grill plate breaks down fairly quickly
Does a steak well
Had it for a while, great for full English weekend breakfasts;)
Ive had this a few years and it's not all its cracked up to be. The plates are nearly impossible to get off the bottom now with regular cleaning and all the black from the plates comes off of your hands even after washing.
Would have been a deal if it had an adjustable thermostat.
Nothing special about the price.
Would be a bargain if it wasn't for the price :|
I thought this was a full size mega drive. Imagine my disappointment.
Mine was £40 few weeks ago and apparently it’s been £30 before
