Glass dome explodes
After a thorough clean of the inside of the grand turbo BBQ I started to replace the glass domes over the burners. Unfortunately one of the domes fell off the top of the fridge and dropped between the fridge and blind. When it hit the ground there was an all mighty explosive like a bomb had gone off shattering the dome to splinters. If this had dropped in front of me I would be wearing some serious injuries. There is no warning that this could happen. Not sure if I want to keep this now has the Domes cost $189 ea.
We reluctantly replaced our old BBQ to make way for the Ziggy Grand Turbo built-in, we were hesitant at first after reading some average reviews on some of the other models however ultimately getting the new BBQ turned out the be a great decision!
We bought the Grand Turbo (built-in) and converted to natural gas. One of the big selling points of this bbq is the radiant quartz and burners which are essentially quartz domes covering a gas heating element aimed at more even heat dispersion. The setup was different to what we were used to with ou...
r old BBQ but ultimately hard to tell the difference (in my opinion). The BBQ gets super hot in no time, rarely get flare-ups and is very easy to clean, and most importantly the food tastes great. To be honest It's hard to flaw this BBQ. Overall a great purchase.

Great bbq but lacks some basic rigidity to support its own weight
BBQ generally cooks very nice. Only downside is the the base rigidity and quality of the welds. Seem if the floor is not perfectly flat the whole setup lid and doors become missaligned. The welds are at a quality where they seem to be done by an apprentice but charged at a premium. Welds have some small holes which I would suspect to leak grease at some point and make it hard to clean. Additional note after using the side burner, the gas control for turn down to simmer is non existant so fine controlled cooking is essentially not possible. Considering the price paid we should be getting all the bells and whistles which we didn’t get. Dropping down to 2 stars for that.
Very easy to operate BBQ. Easy to clean as well. Takes very little time to keep it clean. The shelves are easy to remove and wash up . The outside is easy to clean. It is an attractive looking BBQ. The size is good doesn't take up too much space . Easy to maneuver around the back yard Put this BBQ together after buying it from BBQ Galore. Very easy to assemble. Love how it cooks fish, veggies, corn on the cob . Cooks meat evenly, love cooking roasts in this BBQ.
We love our BBQ
After having the salesman at Barbeques Galore talk us through the different options of 4 burner BBQ's and tasting some meat which had been cooked earlier - we were sold. We checked out so many other options trying to find something as perfect but at a lower price and nothing came close. We decided that given the amount of time we would use it (and our guests staying at our holiday house) that it was wroth investing in the best quality. We have it connected to town gas and it works well. The meat cooks perfectly and the heat is even and remains hot. It is easy to clean and feels really sturdy. If you are going to use it a lot - would recommend spending the money.
Questions & Answers
We have bought a Grand Turbo 6 burner recently, to which we ordered the corner module, only to be told that when set up it is impossible to open the draw from which it mounts to, because the it hits the bbq knob. We have spent thousands of dollars buying the Grand Turbo thinking we would get a product that has been designed to perfection. My question is, why does the grand turbo have an inferior corner module that renders the draws useless, when the lesser value corner module for the classic range seems to have been designed to eliminate this problem? We find that the corner product that is designed for our new outdoor kitchen is not fit for purpose, and destroys our whole setup. Will there be a replacement corner module for this outdoor kitchen at the sellers expense to rectify this faulty product
