    Hello has anyone on the forum purchased one of these I have the old one with the deflector plate at the bottom and I noticed that the new ones don't have one so looking for a bit of feedback on how good they are as mine is a little worse for wear and I was thinking of upgrading to the new one cheers Alan.

    Watch this space... I ordered one on Monday, due to be delivered by the end of the week.

    Not sure how much use it will get over the next few weeks but I'll be able to tell you whether it looks nice :Smile:

    Cheers Phil let me know how you get on with it I have been looking and I have found one on ebay for £25 less than the one at Brownhills it's the one with the Scottle and it was at £171 at Brownhills.

    The half plate and half griddle one looks good but you buy it as a extra.

    Here's Julie useing ours just north of sellafield last month, got it off eBay £136 delivered, very happy with it but don't think the griddle is as good as the reversible one on the old ones, it has holes all over it and let's the fat drop out instead of it running to the edge and you can't turn it over for a flat plate as you could with the old one, but we have bought a flat pan from aldi that does the job for £6 so not too bad

    Chaser did you have the old model before you bought the Cadac 2 it would be interesting to know what you thought of it not having the heat deflector plate on which stopped the breeze affecting the flame I noticed the new one does not come with one cheers Alan.

    Try Riversway leisure; we bought ours there three years ago for £99 and I think they are still selling them for less than £130. :thumb:

    I didn't have one but my son did and used that, can't say there is much difference as regards wind but as I said don't like the griddle half as much as the old reversible one apart from anything else you have to carry twice as many plates , don't know if it is important to you but I like dipping bread in bacon fat or cooking eggs and stuff in it but you can't do that with the new one as all the fat runs through the holes and you can't really do eggs at all unless you get as we have a flat pan or you can of coarse use a frying pan but that's sort of defeating the object as you can use your pan on the van cooker.

    Must say though very satisfied even though it may look as if I am moaning, oh btw, it's not as easy to put together as the old one either
