<strong>The hottest... rotisserie barbecue</strong><br />
&nbsp;</div>
<em>Heston Blumenthal&rsquo;s Everdure Hub; &pound;1,499,&nbsp;<a href="http://johnlewis.com/">johnlewis.com</a></em><br />
<br />
Trust Heston to design a barbecue that looks like a cross between a sideboard and a spaceship. Trust Heston to say this big, grey monolith is part of &ldquo;a new genre of Michelin-starred barbecues&rdquo;. And trust Heston to sell it for more than most home ovens.<br />
That does buy you features you won&rsquo;t find on other models. The most eye-catching is the rotisserie spit. The electric ignition gets charcoal up to temperature in just seven minutes, so no painful waiting for reluctant coals to get going; and the wide grilling tray allows you to build hot spots and cooling areas. &nbsp;&nbsp;<br />
The Everdure is so annoyingly well designed that even an amateur like me could produce a reasonable spread without a) having to turn the oven on, or b) poisoning my guinea pig guests. Why is that annoying? Because once you&rsquo;ve tried this beast, you won&rsquo;t want to cook on a traditional barbecue again. Trust bloody Heston.&nbsp;<strong><em>Jonny Cooper<br />
