Top Indian Chef Sanjeev Kapoor was promoting these a while ago, his brand WonderChef.
but you couldn't get them here in the UK.

Now you can, cool,  8) good Crippa present. ;)

Ok, so I just called spices of india the shipping cost for this to Ireland is of 7.50£ (and I can add anything up to 30kg with this shipping cost) -- the only thing setting me back from placing the order right now is that I don't feel confident enough that the product is a good replacement for a tandoor, but I might be wrong. Has anyone used one of these before and is it worth it?

I'm looking for reviews, but I can only find the ones chewy posted... :-/

I think theyre a con if you ask me. No different to a bbq with a lid that you can pick up for under £20, bar a fancy design of inner plates.

Here's a cheaper alternative thats sold in India as a gas tandoor.

Notice the similarity to a cheap bbq?  ;)


These look a far better option for the home cook....if you can source them in/or get delivered to the UK.

Actually thinking about these, is it that far away from the Cobb http://www.cobb-bbq.co.uk/ (http://www.cobb-bbq.co.uk/) which brings us back to the BBQ. The Hairy bikers used them alot in their earlier shows.

Plus looking at them the other week at a show, they now do a double size one.

Thank you DP. Oh well... I guess I need to spend the money on the real thing.  If only the weather was more reliable, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it.

Ah Jayzus, and aren't you living in God's own isle ?  Sure and the weather is as reliable as a man could want -- "a fine soft day", every day :)

I don't know anything about god's own isle, but we sure get the 4 seasons in a day and it's common saying "If you don't like the weather, wait 15 mins and it will change"

I like your touch of Dublin slang "jayzus" ;-)
