After a long wet and windy winter, you deserve to put your feet up and enjoy the sunshine, and what better way is there than to spend time in your garden, relaxing on your own, or with family and friends? With the bank holidays and summer fast approaching, now is the ideal time to invest in some quality outdoor products that will enable you to make the very most of the sunshine and the longer, warmer evenings.
Whether you have a large or small outside space, enjoy intimate gatherings or love to throw a party, independent department store, Quadrant, has you covered. With branches in Braintree and Chelmsford, Quadrant has recently added an impressive outdoor living range to its online store, so you can shop for the spring and summer from the comfort of your own home.
You can choose from beautifully designed, eye-catching chimineas, gas fire pits and gas fires that will provide both a focal point for your patio and much needed warmth when the sun goes down. Perhaps you will opt for the traditional design of the Apollo Burner at just £180.00, which features a chimney and built-in wood storage, sturdy feet and a lockable mesh door for added safety, or should you desire something more modern, the Comet Chiminea at £250, which will add both warmth and elegance to your garden space.
If you are looking for something that provides a more continuous and controllable heat, you are bound to be tempted by the Magna Round Gas Fire Pit at £600.00, which is made from smooth, natural stone and offers even heat distribution, a protective glass safety guard and 360-degree access. Also available from Magna are two natural stone rectangular gas fires, priced between £650.00 and £700.00, with hidden gas chambers and glass safety guards.
If outdoor cooking is something you enjoy, Quadrant offers a wide range of charcoal, gas and dual fuel BBQs from trusted brands, Ignite, Kamado and Stealth. The Ignite Duo XL BBQ Grill at £399.99 is perfect for large summer parties; it has two cooking chambers with varying heights for convenient temperature control and comes with extra storage, two folding side tables and a built-in thermometer. Or perhaps you would prefer the all-singing, all-dancing Ignite Multi XL Grill with gas, charcoal, smoker, and side burner at £900.00? Featuring cast iron gas burners with individual control, a large capacity grilling surface, warming rack, practical side burner, built-in smoker, extra storage, and dual-fuel input. It is also easy to clean and has removable drawers – what more could you want?
If you are a fan of innovation and more radical design and are looking for something a little different, why not try a ceramic BBQ from Kamado? These quirky, egg-shaped BBQs allow you to smoke, bake, grill and sear. Featuring built-in thermometers, they heat up in minutes and remain hot for hours due to an air-tight seal, which also ensures quick and efficient cooking. The Kamado Maxi Ceramic BBQ, which is perfect when catering for up to five people, is priced at £499.00, while the larger Kamado XL is ideal for larger groups (up to nine people) and is supplied with two fold-out wooden shelves for additional storage.
Quadrant also offers a range of powerful Stealth gas BBQs, which are available with either two, three, four or six burners. Constructed using robust stainless steel, which is easy to maintain, corrosion resistant and recyclable, every Stealth BBQ features burners that can be individually controlled (like a gas hob), built-in thermometers and removable grease trays, which make them easier to clean. They also feature a side-burner for sauteing meats and vegetables and are supplied with a waterproof cover, so that you can protect your investment without having to store it in a shed or garage. To suit a range of budgets, prices start at £399.99 for the Stealth 200 Two Burner BB and end at £1,000.00 for the Stealth Pro Six Burner BB.
Quadrant also stocks the versatile Smoker Grill XL at £299.99. As the name would suggest, this product is a 2-in-1 smoker and grill with built-in temperature gauge and water pan for bespoke cooking, which is ideal when catering for up to six people. There is also the dual purpose, Sphere Pit n’ Grill at just £199.99, which can be used as both a fire pit and BBQ, with a grilling surface that again caters for up to six people.
