    Cadac, as previously said, the best on the market.

    Hi Dennis

    If you like a great lump of a bag taking up plenty of storage.. Buy the Cadac

    If you want separate legs to mess about with.. Buy the Cadac

    If you love cleaning, buy the Cadac

    If you enjoy watching Barbies continue to burn after you switched them off . Buy the Cadac.

    Most people end up only using the large £30 Paella dish or the frying plate on their Cadac, because these dishes are great bits of wipe clean kit and there is no cleaning the cadac after you've used them. But if you are only going to use a paella pan you may as well just use a £10 gas ring under it.

    Buy the Cadac Paella pan, give the BBQ a miss:Smile:

    Hi , I agree cadac is best ,my personal choice is the easi chef as the legs fold and pack away reducing storage needed, I also take 2 little wedges just to adjust legs when ground not level . hope this helps. Terry

    I use the small cadac, but always cook on griddle as no point cooking on pan as you dont lose the fat.
    Bit of cleaning but easyto wipe it off when still reasonably hot.

    I bought the CADAC carry chef recently, and it is as good as i expected. Nice piece of kit, and i do not find it hard to clean. I don't use the BBQ plate as that is a pain to clean, i just use the reversible griddle and it suffices and cooks well. I like it, and i am pleased with it. Got it from hamilton gas products in Ireland. £108 delivered. Also bought the pipe and regulator from them for less than a tenner.

    Cadac and a paella pan ! Keep a large kitchen roll handy too to mop up the fat as it appears.
    Then theres no fat to clean away when your finished or set fire to if not .

    silicon baking sheet laid over the griddle/paella plate and theres no cleaning up at all.

    simply wash the sheet and dry it 'til next time. :thumb:

    kitchen roll to mop up any fat as you cook....perfect.

    maybe one day i'll use the wire mesh to BBQ properly :Doh:

    Like Craig, I recently bought a Cadac from Hamilton Gas products at a great price and free delivery. No probs cleaning it so far. Didn't bother with the paella dish. So far, so good. :BigGrin:

    I also bought one of them silicon sheets for it, but keep forgetting to use it. :Doh:
