Ninja customers have been raving about the Woodfire Electric BBQ, which boasts 4.8 stars out of five after 802 reviews on Ninja’s site. Buyers have said the device is so good they’ve ‘thrown away their coal and gas’ BBQs.

One review said: “Saves on coals and you get the taste of a BBQ and it’s so quick.” Another said: “Amazing and easy to use. I love my Ninja woodfire electric burner.

So much easier and cleaner to use than a gas or coal BBQ. Love the multi-functions it has and the food tastes great. Ideal for small families or couples, ideal for one to four people could stretch to cooking for six but no more.”

A third added: “This is a game changer no more messing with coal you can cook with the lid open for a BBQ-style experience or closed to let the Ninja do all the work. It’s easy to clean and can fit around eight burgers at a time on the grill. It has a two-metre cable which makes it easy to set up. Cleaning’s easy thanks to the non-stick plates and removable tray.”

However, one customer said: “It’s a shame with fatty meat spitting at the lid the fat drips down the back and diverts to the legs making a bit of a mess when used repeatedly for varying foods.”

The Ninja Woodfire Electric BBQ Grill and Smoker is available from eBay (£171.75), Amazon (£272.93) and Ninja (£279.99).

Alternatively, Amazon stocks several traditional gas or coal BBQs, including the VonHaus Charcoal Portable BBQ at £174.99 or the CosmoGrill Outdoor XL Smoker Charcoal Portable BBQ at £154.99.
