Having used both charcoal BBQs and gas ones I am always drawn back to my classic BBQ. There is something more appealing when you have taken the time to set up your BBQ, lit it and waited for it to be the right temperature that you don't get with gas ones. Added to this is the extra flavour that is apparent from charcoal, in my view!
Sainsbury's 17 inch BBQ has everything that you could want for a small family BBQ. It has a shelf low down to keep utensils, plates or food. It also comes with a vented lid which helps add to the safety whilst children are around or when the inevitable spots of rain appear. It is fitted with a stay cool handle and two wheels which makes it very easy to move around.
Very easy to assemble and ready to use instantly this basic BBQ is excellent if you have limited space or are only cooking for a few people. I have used it as much as I could throughout the summer and it is still in very good condition. It is also very reasonably priced at around £15. If you entertain more than a small family then you will need to upgrade to a larger cooking area but until then this will fit the bill perfectly.
Sainsbury's is the third largest chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom. It was founded in London in 1869. Not only does it provide food, but also many domestic appliances. This review is about one of Sainsbury's cook appliances, given the full name, Sainsbury's Kettle Barbecue.
Sainsbury's Kettle Barbecue is packed in a big recycled box and easy to open. There is a picture of the appliance on the front box. Inside the box there are parts of the BBQ, fixings and an assembly instruction leaflet.
My Sainsbury's Kettle Barbecue is in a black colour. The parts include: Lid handle, Lid air vent, Lid and Lid hook, Cooking grill and Charcoal grill, Fire bowl and Ash pan, Wheel leg and long leg, etc; The fixings include: Bolts, Washers, Nuts and Plastic spacer, etc.
Before you can use the appliance you need to assembly the parts. You need a screwdriver and a spanner too. Following the instruction leaflet step by step, it's easy to do the job.
First fit the cup onto the top of the long leg, align the hole in the leg with the hole in the base of the fire bowl and loosely secure the leg to the fire bowl by fitting the washer and bolt. After assembling all legs align the holes of the air vent and fire bowl; fit the bolt shown into the small central hole; fit the washer and secure inside the fire bowl.
Next fit the shelf between the barbecue legs; Place the ash pan on the shelf. Move the ash pan up towards the legs until the legs fit into the slots and the pan into position.
Third align the holes in the handles with the ones in the fire bowl and secure they are in correct position.
Fourth align the holes of the air vent and lid; Fit the lid bowl and the washer to make lid is ready.
Last to fit the charcoal and the cooking grills into the fire bowl. After that you can start to do your barbecue.
The appliance is really easy to use. However there are some things you should know. For example, this barbecue will become very hot, do not move it during operation; do not use indoors; Use only firelighters to lighting the barbecue; Max fill level for charcoal is 2kg, etc.
Price and Availability:
In the UK you can buy Sainsbury's Kettle Barbecue in many their stores and website. The original price was £30, but now you can get it for £4.50.
I bought my barbecue in last Christmas and I paid £9. It was a good bargain to me. Now I have used it for four times and I feel satisfied with it. First it's easy to put together. Second it looks very smart and it suits my small garden. Third it's very easy to move on the wheels; the handles are well designed to carry. Last but not least the BBQ does the job very well. I have nothing to complain.
All in all I think it's a very good value product. I hope I can use it more if we don't have so much rain in summer. For the current £4.50 price I would highly recommend it.
