Are your barbecues summer ready?

Are your barbecues summer ready?

Now is the perfect time to assess the condition of your barbecue facilities to guarantee the best possible cooking experience for your residents and visitors and ensure it is ready for peak holiday use.

When should I upgrade my barbecue cooktop and cabinets? 


Is your barbecue hotplate food safe? Hotplates may warp or corrode over time, creating cold areas that can harbour bacteria. Besides hygiene and health risks, worn-out hotplates may increase cooking times and use more energy. 

Barbecue spare parts and labour costs

Barbecues used past their design life can be expensive to operate and maintain and provide an inferior cooking experience. Some component manufacturers have discontinued products, and replacing spare parts that are phased out won’t be easy. Upgrading to the latest energy-saving technology with our iron-clad 2-year parts and labour warranty may be cheaper than continuing to repair older assets. 

Barbecue facility assessment

Your BBQ cabinets should provide a food-safe environment. Benchtops should be replaced with stainless steel or other food-safe material, as tiles may harbour dirt and bacteria. Clean the cabinet interior regularly to remove fat or oil deposits and replace them if necessary. 


Barbecues are popular with everyone, and cooktops and cabinets should cater to users of all abilities. Christie A Series and ICON accessible cabinets provide universal access, and the DDA-compliant design enables seated and standing users to safely reach and use the cooktop.

A Christie barbecue will provide you with the latest energy-saving technology, a superior barbecue experience for users, and unbeatable value for money. Christie is passionate about providing the best products on the market, as well as the best user experience and customer service.
