Get your grill in order this summer with our guide to the season’s must-have BBQ tools.
When you are cooking al fresco, you want to serve the food, the whole food, and nothing but the food. Don’t leave chunks of food stuck to your grates – keep them well oiled with the Steven Raichlen Grilling Grate Oiler. This hand-held grill brush is wider than most on the market and its integral oil reservoir provides a steady flow of oil as you brush your grates. Even better, it’s made from temperature-resistant materials so you can put it in the dishwasher for an easy clean!
Set a new trend among your friends by being the first to cook on a block of Himalayan rock salt. Slowly heat a slab of salt on your BBQ grill and when it’s up to temperature, add your food and sizzle. Your food will have a hint of saltiness and it’s sure to impress your guests.
Clip, clip, hurray!
If you find yourself losing food between the grates of your BBQ, then this could be the tool for you. Stainless-steel, hinged clips clamp down on your ingredients and prevent them falling through the grill grate. Amazing for asparagus, superb for zucchini and excellent for eggplant.
Cooked to perfection
Guarantee your food is cooked perfectly with a grilling thermometer. Take the guess work out of the cooking process, and keep hands away from the heat, by taking accurate readings from the centre of your food. That way, you can be sure your guests will remember your BBQ for the right reasons.
It was the best of BBQs, it was the worst of BBQs
BBQs are great, but cleaning your grates is not. Never fear – there’s a robot for that. The Grill Bot is equipped with three powerful motors and three cleaning cycles that make short work of the clear up after the cook up. Charge between uses and then place on your BBQ, click a button and let it do the hard work for you.
A serious case of BBQs
For the ultimate in portable BBQs, why not give the briefcase BBQ a go? A charcoal grill concealed in a briefcase, it opens out onto sturdy legs to provide the perfect pit-stop grill while you’re out and about. A smaller version, the notebook portable grill, is also available. Proof that BBQs are serious business indeed.
