A portable BBQ is a happy medium between hefty grills and the cheap, disposable BBQs you find in supermarkets. The Notebook Folding Grill is reliable, durable and will stand the test of time. Most importantly, it’s easy-to-use.

Everything about it is geared towards practicality. Weighing just 3kg, it’s super lightweight making it easy to carry, while the ingenious design means it will fold completely flat, making it very convenient for taking to the beach, on a camping trip or for picnics in the park.

The compact and neat design has also meant that it’s a big hit with shoppers who only have a small terrace or balcony but still want the BBQ experience. 

The Notebook Folding Grill may be compact, but with a cooking area of 44cm x 27.5cm, shoppers have shared that there is plenty of room to serve around four people with minimal fuss. One shopper even remarked how it’s ‘surprisingly spacious’. 

The small size also means it will take less time to heat up and cook your food, so if you’re looking for a quick al fresco dinner then this could be an easy, affordable solution. 

While it’s easy to clean, some shoppers have shared that they use foil across the bottom and the sides to make it easier to deal with the aftermath of cooking.  

It may not have the bells and whistles of some more expensive models, but the legs mean it will be sturdier on unstable surfaces like grass, while its fuss-free design makes it super easy to use. Just add the charcoal and put on the heat-resistant painted-steel grill and away you go. 

The grill opens up neatly and is an ideal solution for those short on space or wanting a portable grill

Weighing only 3kg, the portable grill is great for camping, parks or the beach, and is big enough to feed four people 

One delighted shopper left a five-star review for the grill on Amazon, writing: ‘Excellent!!! Neat portable BBQ, simple but sturdy design, easily folds up and fits into a backpack or the boot/trunk of a small car.

‘It gave a good 2 hour burn on charcoal briquettes and easily held enough vegetables and chicken for a family of 4. I Highly recommend this as an essential summer purchase.’

A second agreed, adding: ‘Amazing for the price! I bought this to use as a Father’s Day bbq. I was quite worried about using it due to the price but it was so good! It’s so simple to put together and just as easy to put it away again! 

‘We managed to fit a good amount of food on – 4 burgers, 5 sausages and 4 chicken skewers. We were really pleasantly surprised!’

A third penned: ‘Folds perfectly flat so it’s really easy to transport, use it for camping mainly and it acts really well as a log burner as well as a barbecue definitely worth a buy.’
