The usage is one of the main differences between normal utensils and BBQ utensils. Barbecue tools tend to have long handles, so you can safely prod and turn your ingredients without the risk of burns. Whether you use a charcoal or gas grill, the flames give the heat more intensity than an oven. Manufacturers also generally use stainless steel or other metal alloys for BBQ utensils because it’s robust and heat resistant. Likewise, when deciding on BBQ tools, look for sets with heat-resistant handles. Plastic utensils are usually not suitable for barbecue grilling as they cannot withstand such high temperatures.
Another thing to think about is whether you want a gas or a charcoal BBQ grill set. Gas grills are a bit quicker to fire up and can be easier to use than charcoal grills. They can also be easier to clean and maintain as you don’t have to clean up any ash.
However, many people enjoy the smoky flavors you get with a charcoal grill. Charcoal barbecues take a bit longer to heat up, but their glowing embers give burgers, sausages and other foods that classic barbecued appearance.
Whichever heat source you go for, barbecue grill plates are often available in either cast iron or stainless steel. Stainless steel is easy to clean and maintain. Cast iron is durable and retains heat really well, but can be prone to rust without the proper care. When correctly seasoned with oil, cast iron grills — just like cast iron pans — can last for years.
If you plan on keeping your grill outside all year round, you might want to consider a set with a lid or hood to protect it from the elements. A hood can also act as a windbreak if you’re cooking on a breezy day! Alternatively, you can buy a separate cover to keep your barbecue in top condition.
Juicy corn on the cob is a delicious part of the BBQ experience. Add melted butter and a sprinkle of cracked black pepper for a hot, sweet nibble. But eating corn on the cob can be a challenge. Avoid burning your fingers and getting melted butter everywhere with some corn on the cob holders. Simply pop the pins into each end of the cob and enjoy mess-free BBQ sweetcorn. Zyliss Corn on the Cob Holders also nest for easy storage — no accidental jabs as you go through the utensil drawer!
Preparing and hosting a barbecue can be a fun experience. But nobody wants the post-BBQ clean up hanging over them. Investing in a set of good quality BBQ utensils that can go straight in the dishwasher will make tidying up a breeze. Think spatulas, tongs, and turners...
The hot food is sorted - the sausages are sizzling, the corn on the cob is charring. But wouldn’t a nice crisp salad add a bit of colour and crunch to the mix? Eliminate the problem of soggy lettuce with our handy Salad Spinner. A quick few turns, and your leaves will be clean, fluffy, and free from excess water.
A basting brush can help you spread a fine, uniform coating of oil and seasonings over your ingredients. Your burgers, sausages and veggies will cook evenly, with a satisfying crisp outer layer. For ease of use and maintenance, try looking for a silicone basting brush. With no bristle loss or clumping, silicone brushes are a practical option for indoor cooking as well as summer BBQs. The Zyliss Silicone Basting Brush has a detachable head that can go straight in the dishwasher after use.
