New Grills this Season!

A couple of new barbecues just hit our shores and I’m going to tell you about them. Maybe you’ll find something quite suitable for your budget and lifestyle!

Firstly, I’m going to introduce the Ultra Chef line of grills by Canadian brand, Napoleon. They’re definitely cheaper than the existing lines from Napoleon here in Singapore, such as the Triumph, Lex and LE.

What’s to love?

Price. The UC430 and UC500 are SGD1177 and SGD1498 respectively. The prices include GST, delivery & assembly costs, rain cover, gas regulator and hose, 1 year warranty (includes replacement parts, repairs, transport costs). Given that these are full stainless steel barbecues, this range is pretty affordable compared to similar models in the market.

The UC500 also comes with a motorised rotisserie kit. You can get an additional motorised rotisserie kit for the UC430 for an additional SGD120. Also available is the reversible hotplate for the UC500 – it also comes with the classic Napoleon “Wave” pattern.

Space. For those of you worried about not being about to fit the 12.7kg gas tanks in your BBQs, the UC line has a pretty tall cabinet so you can store your tanks inside.

Function. Both grills on the range come with side burners which turn your barbecue into an outdoor kitchen. Heat up sauces and grill at the same time without moving back and forth between your garden/balcony and kitchen. The UC500 also comes with a back burner and rotisserie.

Moving on….

For the charcoal lovers, local brand Liberty Grills has a new addition to their barbecue family – the Liberty Spitfire Pro!

It’s really the new and improved successor to the original Spitfire 22″ kettle as they will be phasing it out soon (get ’em while in stock~ haha)

In terms of size, the two have the same cooking area, so no changes there. But the new Spitfire Pro does have a rounder, fuller fire bowl and lid combination compared to the first Spitfire which is definitely more aesthetically pleasing (especially with a smooth, glossy finish). It also stands on 3 thicker legs, as opposed to 4 thinner legs. Together with the slightly heavier fire bowl, the barbecue is much sturdier (no rocking about when you shake it) with a solid feel.

The new Liberty Spitfire Pro is available for $321 (price includes GST). They don’t come with rain covers, but those are easily attainable online or from some hardware/DIY stores like Handy House over at 120 Upper East Coast Road (next to Bodytec) or Decofix at Serene Centre. Those stores also sell other barbecue accessories too if you ever need charcoal or fire starters on the weekend.
