Yes, summer is on the horizon. So something like this Volkswagen picnic hamper barbecue might be useful if you like the idea of enjoying and eating in the great outdoors.
Of course, this is inspired by the classic VW camper van and as such, will straight away have an army of admirers. But it isn’t just a pretty face. It is pretty much an outdoor party kit. Well, sort of.
This is described as a ‘two-in-one cool bag and barbecue stand, which sounds like different ends of the spectrum. Hot and cold together? Well yes, that is the case.Esssntially this is a glorified cool bag or cool box.
Stick your food and drink in here and you are good to go for a picnic. A picnic for a few people too as the bag is quite sizeable, so should be ideal for a a feast for as few people. But if those people are demanding more than sandwiches – perhaps a hot meal – then you are prepared for that too.
The lightweight cool bag frame doubles up as a stand for the disposable barbecue. Just undo the straps to remove the cool bag, turn the frame upside down, clip into position, pop your disposable barbecue on the top and fire it up. As long as you remembered to bring barbecue essentials like sausages, chicken legs, kebabs or burgers (and the bread products and sauces to go with them), you can get sizzling and impress everyone with your skills on that front too.
With the weather set fine for quite some time, something like this might be a shrewd purchase if you don’t want to queue then pay a fortune at an overpriced cafe. An investment of £35 gets you this and the freedom to eat when and where you like.
