Good service from the customer care team - any issues (minor) have been jumped on. Great service from Leah at sales support. With the difficulties in the world this past year, accessories have not been easy to come by, and Leah has been very helpful throughout.

Concerned before purchasing
I’m interested in buying this bbq, but sooo many reviews say the paint blisters after use.
Has this been rectified in newer models?
Can the company comment on this at all?
Best BBQ I've ever had. Only disappointment is that paint seal under burners has blistered and is peeling off. BBQ is less than 12 months old. Is this to be expected.

Great BBQ shame about the warranty!
Bought the Force BBQ Sept 2017 - careful owner, low use as only small family. Now the burners will only stay on high - so you cant reduce the cooking temp. We have now found out that the 5 year warranty we were sold it on only covers the aluminium components of the BBQ - the rest has a 2 year warranty. Bit poor for such a premium item interestingly Weber offer 5 years on all components on their BBQs - might be worth thinking about. Waiting to hear back from Everdure as to how they can help us.

Just brilliant! Works as good as it looks!
I was a little hesitant to take on this new beast being so set in my ways on the Weber. We saw it on display in the showroom and it’s design alone was love at first sight for my wife. Easy to assemble, we added the cover and roast rack (another brand) but same type shown in Hestons video. As convection roasts go, it couldn’t be better. Lid down, No direct heat under burner 1 and meat there on the elevated rack off the grill. A tray of veg on burner three and flame here up pretty high. We put the veg in an oven proof dish veg on baking paper, drizzled with olive oil. We’re addicted. Simply awesome.

1st use...paint rubs off
Now don’t get me wrong this is by far a great-looking bbq BUT i am getting it ready for 1st use for tomorrow (new year) as we have friends coming over. To my horror the paint on the front is coming off while cleaning a little bit of oil that splashed on it. Now dont tell me this part is not supposed to have oil - it is a bbq. What should i do to have this replaced?
One annoying thing with the bbq is the fact that the wheels have a mind of their own.

Good looking BBQ but the official cover has damaged the enamel top
Purchased this BBQ three weeks ago. Went to use for first time today and removed the Heston official cover. The official cover has left permanent marks removing the matt finish all over the hood of the BBQ. Looks like a crumpled sheet. We have had a 38 degree day recently and it appears that the cover is not suitable for our Melbourne weather. Very disappointing as its ruined the look of a good looking BBQ.

Bought a Force BBQ in Stone 2 weeks ago and totally love it. Apart from the fact that its an object of beauty and well designed, it also works perfectly. Initially I was disappointed that it didn't come with a cover, however there is currently a promotion for a $100 voucher which covered this cost easily and was very simple to redeem online. Sweet!

Love it already
I bought my Force two days ago and it has satisfied my expectations. This is my first BBQ.
It was very easy to put together and extremely easy to clean. Gets hot very quickly and doesn't seem to have any cold spots. I cooked some sausages and steaks last night on the grill plate, the steaks retained their juiciness and the sausages cooked much quicker than in a frying pan. The slight smokiness was great and I can't wait to try cooking with the hood down and adding some smoking chips.
The only possible revisions I could suggest to Everdure are to enlarge and rubberise the wheels so it moves over paving a little easier, and to enlarge the left servery which is just too small to hold anything useful.

I rarely publish poor reviews but have been so underwhelmed and disappointed since purchasing this BBQ from BBQ Galore in Camperdown that I have to share my experience to maybe save anyone else from going through the same problem.
I purchased the BBQ in dec 2018 and did not receive it until feb 2019 - 2 months after paying in full for it. The store and Everdure kept blaming each other for the mis-communication (I was told there would be a delay of a couple of weeks as the colour was popular so they were out of stock). I was having gas plumbed ...

Great bbq, we have a larger bbq but the Force heats up very quickly and is easy to use, it is kept under cover and look a treat. Great job Everdure, easy to keep clean and seems to still work well when it is windy

GREAT BBQ - EXCEPT
After much deliberation and weeks of homework we finally settled on the Everdure.We were and still are not disappointed.It heats up quickly and we use it a lot.Although i do have a couple of issues.The first one is lack of space to put things either side of the BBQ,have a table close by as their is simply no where to put anything.The second one is amazingly on top of the BBQ their are cooking instructions,warnings and diagrams around the knobs to show you which side of the grill you are using and whether you are on half flame or full flame,all ...of these instructions are now gone , after less than one month,they simply just wipe off and with just water.Now its all a guessing game.I intend to make contact with Everdure as i have not done so as yet.

Great BBQ. Simple to use. Easy to clean.
Our previous BBQ was a Weber Spirit. The Everdure Force is easy to use and cook with and is easy to clean for this style of BBQ. We use our Force regularly for family meals. Unfortunately the coating on the surrounding deck has deteriorated. The decals have come off and the black powder coating has become dull and faded. We wash the cooking plates regularly after use and clean the exterior with soapy water. The BBQ is kept under its cover when not in use.

Great BBQ, first gas bbq I really enjoy cooking on.
Simply it’s the first gas BBQ I’ve used that gets hot enough to cook effectively and not just be a novelty item for cooking outside. Everything coming off this bbq has been a winner with friends and family.
The heat factor put it above the Weber q range and the design & build quality is better with the aluminium hood, and knob placement. It far exceeded the Ziegler’s I looked at with those dodgy clips holding your lid in place.
Cleaning isn’t bad, there’s nothing I enjoy cleaning but this is designed well, there’s nothing I’d suggest to...change other than potentially 1cm more clearance between the burners and the bottom of the cook box to make it easier for my big hands. This is a very minor inconvenience though and something I could probably address with a few seconds thought. One major word of warning if you buy the cleaning product (one was gifted to me free for claiming my $100 cash back offer).. it’ll probably get you hooked as it’s better than the other stuff I was using.
Look no further for a great bbq!
I bought this bbq based on the reviews here and the responses from customer service and I’m really glad I did.
It not only looks good but it works perfectly.
I used it for the first time today and everyone that came was impressed with its performance. I cooked 16 lamb loin chops on the grill plate and 18 sausages and 4 rissoles on the solid plate.
Followed the instructions about closing the lid initially until the barbecue got to temperature of 250° and then put the meat on to grill. It rendered the fat on the chops beautifully.
I would definitely recommend this barbecue especially if you’re considering a Weber which I was initially. This bbq has a much better design and is super easy to clean.
Steak to perfection
I love a BBQ, and I love a steak. After reading reviews I changed my mind from a Weber to the Force and I am happy. Steak with a beautiful char on the outside and rare in the middle. I have cooked chicken, chops, steak all to perfection. Easy to clean. Highly recommend.
Felt like Master Chef-Love it cooks Steaks to Perfection!
Have to say this BBQ cooks evenly so used to different sections over heating and burning but not the Force the fact that it heats up with in seconds is another bonus and you can tell a professional chef was involved in it's cooking features as I'm pretty sure it cooks better than my cooktop inside the house. I would definitely refer this brand to anyone out there looking for a class act.
I can cook delicates like Prawns on one side while sausages are on the other side
So Easy to use clean and cook on very happy!
Love the fact it's on wheels comes with a lid and temperature gauge plus I bought the BBQ cover which goes all the way to the floor keeping it all clean and protected.
Best performing BBQ I ever owned to date! with small aesthetic defect..
After doing my research I went into the shop wanting to buy a Weber Family Q yesterday afternoon.
While waiting to be served, a BBQ caught my attention due to the clean lines. It was an Everdure by Heston Force.
After seeing the product, feeling the built quality as well as doing some on the spot research, I felt confident Everdure by Heston Force tick all the boxes of Weber Family Q and more so purchased Everdure Force instead. The small premium is well worth it due to the built quality in my opinion. The metal bbq chassis and metal...servery feels substantial and is superior to the plastic flaps on other products. after getting Everdure Force home around 5 o’clock and putting it together (which was a breeze), everyone (4 of us) were seated and tucking into bbq lamb cutlets with salad and steamed veg by 7 due to the fast heating grill. Lamb cutlets had beautiful grill marks and didn’t stick at all and perfectly pink in the middle. Love it! I am looking forward to trialing a few different recipes with Everdure Force when friends come over. I think they will be impressed with the built quality and the flavour the new kit can generate.
This is perfect, has precise heat control and looks very stylish. Lights first time
This is a quality product.
I cooked a perfect roast pork on my first attempt.
Would certainly recommend.
We have also ordered the cover and roasting rack with our $100 voucher which came with the force.
This is amazing
This BBQ cooks the most amazing steak .We had friends over Christmas day and it cooked the most beautiful and most tasteful food .Will be recommending this to many of my friends .The BBQ is stored on my balcony and i consider it to be very safe and easily maintained .
Questions & Answers
Have had our Everdure 2 burner for 15 maths. Initially easy to clean the hot plate. However lately the nonstick coating is coming off and there is a rust patch evident. It's kept covered always and hot plate not used as often as the grill. Why would this happen.
I cannot see anywhere that shows where the gas bottle is situated. Some advertising shows one shelf underneath and some 2. What is standard? Also there is no info on cleaning. I live in the middle east and so would be buying from the advertising you show. Would appreciate any input you can provide
Everdure by Heston Blumenthal
Hi There Lynnie S , thanks for contacting us regarding our FORCE , please see below . We hope that this will assist with your decision or you can get back to us if you require further information.
The gas bottle is situated on the right hand side and hung via the supplied Cylinder Hook.
EXTERNAL CLEANING Before cleaning the barbeque exterior and stand, ensure the appliance has cooled and is safe to touch. Painted and plastic surfaces can be cleaned using a mild household detergent or cleaner and a clean cloth (do not use scourers or harsh detergents). It is advisable to test cleaners on a small section of the appliance first. NEVER use paint thinners or similar solvents for cleaning and NEVER pour cold water over hot surfaces. Dry the surface afterwards.
INTERNAL CLEANING Before cleaning the internal parts of your barbeque, ensure the appliance has cooled and is safe to touch. The inside of the hood can be cleaned by using some water, mild detergent and a sponge or mild scouring pad. The non-stick coated surface of the hot plate should be cleaned carefully so as not to scratch the surface as above, preferably when the surface is still warm. For hard to clean areas, use a little baking soda on a wet sponge. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
Hi I'm thinking about buying either the force or furnace BBQ and I've read lots of reviews that the BBQ doesn't get hot enough after about a year....has anyone else had this problem?
Yes after 2 years we had that problem. We got a new regulator and now its much better.
Thanks SadKiwi good to know
