Char-Broil's take on the ever-popular kettle barbecue features a porcelain grate that food can't fall through. Temperature control is easy thanks to an extra-large damper, a hinged lid (that also latches shut for transport) and built-in thermometer. There's plenty of grill space and the ash tray is easy to remove and empty/clean. The Kettleman has largely 5-star reviews on Amazon, and deservedly so as it's well built and excellent value. At this price, even more so.

There's money off the whole range of LotusGrill and LotusGrill XL barbecues but the best deal – and the one Amazon is promoting today – is on the LotusGrill XL in a 'grain' finish. Depending on who you believe the normal price of this is either about £250 or about £300 and today it's £169.99 – although maybe not for much longer as only 5 are left. LotusGrill uses a unique 'bellows' action to get the grill up to heat quicker – it's ready to go in under 3 minutes, in fact. It's extremely convenient: the grill produces the bare minimum of smoke, the exterior stays cool enough to touch and the cooking parts are even dishwasher proof. The grill size – 435 x 350 x 257 mm is fairly substantial for such a portable thing, too.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
