How do I clean the cooking grill?
Clean with hot soapy water. To remove any food residue, use a mild cream cleaner on a non-abrasive pad.
Rinse well and dry thoroughly.
Can I store the barbecue outdoors when not in use?
Do not leave your barbecue uncovered when not in use.
Store your barbecue in a shed or garage when not in use to protect against the effects of extreme weather conditions.
Where can I purchase barbecue gas (propane)?
Propane may usually be obtained from the store where you purchased your barbecue.
However, if it is not available use the links at the bottom of this page to find your local gas supplier.
Can I use butane gas instead of propane?
Yes, but you must change the regulator supplied to a butane regulator suitable for use with butane bottled gas in your country.
How frequently should my barbecue be serviced?
We recommend that the barbecue is serviced by a qualified technician after every 100 hours of use.

Caring for your Barbecue
In order to get the most from your barbecue and to optimise performance and lifespan, we strongly suggest the following steps:
- Try to keep your barbecue on a level surface. This will prevent oil gathering in one corner, particularly on the searing plate.
- Pre-heat your barbecue for 5-10 minutes with the hood down before cooking.
- It is best to oil the meat instead of the grill plates.
- When cooking, try to keep the hood down. A barbecue with a built in viewing window will make this easier and help to create that original barbecue flavour.
- After cooking, close the hood and turn all burners to the high setting for 10 minutes. This will help to clean the vaporiser bars and grill plates. You can then bring your grill plates inside and clean them more thoroughly if required.
- Never use metal barbecue tools as this will damage your porcelain enamel.
- After every 3-4 barbecues, remove the vapour bars and burners and thoroughly clean them.
- If your barbecue has a window, you can very easily clean it with a slightly abrasive nylon pad. Do not use a Brillo pad.
- Be sure to put a layer of sand in your grease tray. This will prevent flare ups and grease dripping on to your patio/deck.
- Always keep your barbecue covered when not in use.
