And everything you need to take your BBQ to the next level…

Pair of tongs

Good pair of tongs

A necessity for any grill master. BBQ tongs are incredibly versatile and have many uses, such as, turning food while grilling on the BBQ, serving pasta, tossing salad, mixing stir-fry, and handling raw meat. Look for a pair of tongs with comfortable grip that is long enough for you to keep your hands away from the heat.

SpatulaSpatulaSpatulaSpatula

Spatula

Essential for flipping burgers, steaks, and sausages. Look for one that is sturdy and has a wide, flat surface for easy flipping. A good spatula should have a long handle to keep your hands away from the heat.

Fork

Fork

A barbecue fork allows you to handle food on the BBQ while staying a safe distance from the heat. Just be careful not to use it too often as it can pierce the meat, causing it to lose its juices. Our GoodHome grill fork has been designed with an ergonomic soft touch grip and stainless steel head. The handle is shaped perfectly so it won't touch the cooking surface and therefore stays clean. This fork also features a blade on the pick to cut into meat and check while cooking.

Grill Brush

Grill brush

A clean BBQ grate prevents last night’s steak feast from tainting today's delicately flavoured veggies. Use a grill brush to clean your grates before each use so that each meal is as tasty as the next. Choose a brush with sturdy bristles and a long handle so you can clean your grill while it’s still hot (without any risk of burning yourself).

Heat-resistant gloves

Barbecuing is hot and messy business, so having a pair of heat-resistant gloves is a must. Choose gloves that can withstand high temperatures and have good grip to help you handle hot, heavy items with ease.

Meat thermometer

Meat thermometer

Take the guesswork out of grilling with a meat thermometer. It’s the best way to ensure your meat is cooked to the perfect temperature – essential for both safety and taste. We’ve got a range of different meat thermometers to choose from, including smart ones that you can connect to your phone.

Skewers

Skewers

Skewers are fantastic for grilling small or delicate items that are too small to sit on the grates. Look for skewers that are long enough to hold multiple items and are made from a sturdy material like metal or bamboo.

Basting brush

Add flavour and moisture to your meat with a barbecue basting brush. Our GoodHome basting brush spreads oil and sauces on meat or vegetables. With a long handle and silicone head, it can absorb and distribute sauce evenly.

Grill Basket

Grill basket

Maximise the versatility of your BBQ with a grill basket. A grill basket is perfect for grilling vegetables, seafood or other small, delicate items that might fall through the grates. Choose one with high edges so you can toss it without any pieces of food spilling over the sides.

Drip pan

A simple drip pan can save you from a whole lot of cleaning and maintenance. Use them to line the drip tray of your barbecue – they help make the disposal of grease easy and clean. You could turn the collected juices into a delicious gravy or dipping sauce!
