The overall score is made up of cooking performance (60%) and ease of use (40%). Our performance assessment is weighted equally between these 4 tests:
Steak cooked on the grill for six to eight minutes each side with all burners on full.
Sausages grilled on a medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes each side with the entire cooking surface covered and the hood closed (unless the manufacturer states otherwise).
Marinated chicken wings cooked on the hotplate over a low heat, for about 10 minutes each side.
Whole chicken roasted (if possible on the barbecue) with the outder burners on high and inner burners on low, and the hood closed.
Top-scoring barbecues cooked everything evenly throughout, resulting in consistently tender and juicy meat. This also meant the barbecue’s temperature was easy to control, and its heat was evenly distributed across the cooking surface.
Ease of use scores comprise general ease of cooking (40%) mobility (20%), controls (20%) and cleaning (20%).

Product use: 6 months or more
Purchased from Briscoes, this BBQ has been used perhaps 5 times total, no liquid spills and no weather exposure. Stored dry in garage.
While assembling BBQ, I noticed some bubbling beneath paint. After using only a few times it was stored clean in our garage.
The bubbles (present from new) is actually corrosion beneath the paint which has now spread considerably. While still under warranty, Briscoes have denied refund or credit toward a better model & simply wish to swap the currently affected parts. The entire BBQ is the same painted metal & will also corrode. This will soon be throw away
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
