With an average 4.6-star rating on the Wilko website those who’ve already snapped it up can’t stop gushing about it, as the snapshot of customer reviews below prove.

‘There are so many very expensive BBQ’s out there, but when you can’t guarantee you will use it very often, this gives a perfect alternative. Sturdy and very good value for money.’

‘Bought this as needed temporary replacement for brick built barbecue. Pleasantly surprised as it is a reasonable size to get decent amount of food on grill to cook. Plus with the lid can BBQ even when weather not great.’

‘Perfect for 2 people. Good quality construction and easy to put together. We have used it several times and always been pleased with the results.’

Neil Fairhurst, Head of Gardening at Wilko, commented:‘Whilst wilko garden and outdoor living products have been well received by customers so far this season, nothing has flown off the shelves quite like the Wilko BBQ Kettle Grill 44cm, which seems to be the hero BBQ for the summer.

‘We recommend shoppers take advantage of the wash-out weather over the coming week and beat the crowd if they want to get hold of the BBQ, as the way it has been received and reviewed so far, we’re expecting to see further stock fly off the shelves.

‘We’re delighted to help the nation get their garden ready for summer without spending all of their hard-earned cash, and hope everyone manages to get hold of the Kettle Grill BBQ before it sells out.’
