Trend emerging for luxury and exclusive BBQs

10/09/2010 More and more people are looking for luxury BBQs and exclusive models which offer a wide range of features, it has been suggested.

A trend report from the spoga+gafa garden furniture trade show revealed that there are two camps emerging when it comes to BBQ buying trends.

The first is for portable and compact BBQs, which can be moved between locations easily, and the second is for luxury models that can have features including pizza ovens and special stations for grilling steak to perfection.

"The focus is not just on convenience, however, since consumers also want a stylish look. That also applies to accessories, which is why tongs, skewers and barbecue mitts have a high-quality appearance," the report added.

For those who are looking for convenience as well as style, a gas BBQ could be the ideal option as models offer easily controllable heat and varied temperature controls.

spoga+gafa was held in the German city of Cologne between September 5th and 9th 2010 and attracted more than 2,000 exhibitors.  ADNFCR-3488-ID-800060322-ADNFCR
