Summer means one thing - barbecues. 

While some are briskly dusting off their charcoal grill, others may be looking to scrap their old contraption in favour of a gas version, or thinking of investing in their first outdoor cooking appliance. 

There's one barbecue high on our wish list, (and other shoppers' lists too by the looks of things), the John Lewis & Partners 3 Burner Gas BBQ, which has been added to people's baskets 17 times in the last 24 hours, according to the website. 

Why we rate it 

The 3 Burner Gas BBQ can cook food for up to 6 people, which is ideal for families or summer gatherings. 

Though this design has three burners, each one can be lit individually. It is fitted with flame tamer to prevent the flames from flaring up and becoming dangerous to cook with, while also delivering on the smoky BBQ flavour we all love. 

It's made from a dual skin stainless steel hood, as well as porcelain coated cast iron grills and features a removable cut-out grill, as well as a warming rack, to help when serving up your feast. 

The BBQ also boasts a base shelf, drip tray and transporter wheels, as well as a heat indicator and built-in thermometer, so you will cook your food to perfection. 

John Lewis recommends using a propane/patio gas cylinder bottle for this BBQ, ranging from 3kg to 13kg, although a hose and regulator is included.  

The 3 Burner Gas BBQ costs £279 at John Lewis & Partners and comes with a 10-year guarantee. 

What the reviews say

The John Lewis & Partners 3 Burner Gas BBQ has garnered positive reviews from shoppers, and if selling out on numerous occasions isn't proof enough this buy is hot property, then see what customers have to say:

  • "I have used this BBQ a few times now and am really pleased with it. It is well made, the materials used are good quality, it was easy to assemble and it looks great."

  • "Looked all over for a decent gas BBQ. It says it takes about an hour to set up, it took about 45mins. Once assembled it became apparent that this is a sturdy good quality BBQ.. it cooked like it should. Awesome 5 star product."

  • "BBQ quality is great. Did the gas safety test after changing the gas valve to fit our gas bottle. Boy! It is so hot, much better than my old one. I love the circular grill in the middle; useful for pans as I use my BBQ all year round like an indoor cooker. Love how easy to remove the warming shelf if needed...Yes, I'm going to be very happy with this one. And the price is superb for what you get."

  • "As expected from John Lewis it is sturdy, very well made and was easy to put together. We have used it such a lot over lockdown. It is the perfect size for four people for a mixed grill, steak, sausages, burgers, chops etc, and would be fine for 6-8 people for sausages, fish skewers and burgers. Just wish we had bought it sooner."

  • "I've had my barbecue a couple of months now and I'm well pleased with it . Took about 45 minutes to put together."
