I haven't tried a Beauclaire but I love my Cadac. We have it set up in the back garden as a regular BBQ during the summer and we used it every day on our two week (mobile home) holiday in France and of course for our weekend camps in the UK. Although not cast iron, the plates are extremely good quality (better than our kitchen frying pans). I have the chef pan, BBQ plate, grill to braai and pizza stone and I am going to buy a toasting device (as seen on other thread) for next year. The surfaces are very easy to clean (possibly easier than cast iron as they are non stick).

When I bought it a couple of years ago, I trawled through pages and pages on the internet for the cheapest one I could find which meant buying a separate chef pan rather than it being part of a package. The pizza stone and grill to braai were added later.

I wouldn't rush into buying a Cadac if I were you. After using Cadac products for years and having no problems, I convinced my wife that we should replace our rather old and well used Easi-Chef for a fancy new Carry-Chef2 in June. This was instead of paying 10.00 for a plastic venturi to solve a yellow flame problem...... (I know..... ridiculous!)

Well after using the BBQ grill top 5 times, cooking low and slow, no marinades to stick, using silicon tongues and the top cleaning up very nicely in warm soapy water with a washing up sponge... not a scourer in sight or needed. Small amounts of the non stick started to come off in very small pieces showing the shiny metal underneath. This wasn't during washing or transporting etc. This was while I was cooking on it! Needless to say the food was binned!

We contacted Cadac fully expecting for them to replace the obviously faulty grill...... Their answer...... The non stick coating is non-toxic, so don't worry, it won't poison anyone....... If we had reported it before using it they would have replaced under the warranty..... but not now its been used. It's normal wear and tear.

Talk about not listening to your customer! No more Cadac for me.

Do yourself a favour and at least consider a Weber Q. They're fab!
