Many thanks for your informed opinions.

I've reached a decision. The combination of the Cobb for it's size and flexibility and the fact it can now be powered by a gas canister is ideal for me.  So I've ordered one from Lakeland.  They have them on a deal for £129.99 reduced from £150 right now.  Not many left so I struck whilst the 'griddle' was hot!

Looking forward to trying it out this summer! Cool sunny
you will love it best bit of kit we have got and for the size can cook a lot of stuff Smile

Ok Cobb fans.

Now I have my gas powered Cobb, I realise I need a carry bag for it. Before I order that what accessories would you say are genuinely worth getting?

To cook steaks/burgers is the griddle pan worth getting or can I simply use a griddle pan?

The Cobb can be used as a regular BBQ however it works best with the lid on to keep the heat circulating. In theory you could use any griddle pan but the Cobb one will be the precise fit and allow you to put the lid on to keep the heat and moisture in.

On that basis I would give a big YES to the griddle pan, it's the one that we use the most.

Tim ..does your Cobb not come with a carry bag?? our is it because it's gas you may not get one.if you can get the pan that would make it easier to cook certain things .You do need to try and cook" in the Cobb" ie roast potatoes ...veg. Using cider in the "ring"really makes cooking pork great.
I'm sure you will try always .

Just to keep you updated.  After 3 days in Bude using my new Gas Cobb I am delighted with it.

Over the trip I cooked steak, jacket potatoes, pizza, bacon and grilled tomatoes.  Now I'm no budding chef but this thing has gotten me interested in what I can cook next!!

Fyi I bought the specific carry bag for the gas model and I have the accessory grill plate for steaks, burgers etc.

Looking forward to trying out more recipes on the forthcoming Kombi Kaper!! sunny bounce

There's a recipe book plus some examples here:

Cobb Recipes

Any idea how much gas you used for three days?

Ta!

I'm not sure. I'll weigh the canister today and compare with an unused one.

Unused canister weighs 650g used weighs 450g

Time wise I must have had the Cobb on high for 3 hours.

Canisters just under £10?

That's not bad at all.

Having seen lots of people with various cooking 'gadgets' at the sleepover this weekend, I'm looking at investing in a Cobb. I am looking at the gas version (as I was a bit concerned that the brick one just keeps cooking after you've finished) and wondered if there had been any new thoughts on this since last Summer?

We have a cadac but tend to use the lotus grill instead as its so quick to get to the 'able to cook stage'

The thing to appreciate about a Cobb is that it is a multi-cooker rather than a barbecue, i.e. you can barbecue, fry, saute, roast, and casserole. It doesn't cook steaks as well as a barbecue, because it doesn't have as much direct heat, so you can't char the outside while leaving the inside rare. However, you can do plenty of things that a barbecue won't do. Also, there are two types of cobblestones available, the standard one which cooks for up to 2 hours, and the quick one which fires up in 2 minutes but only cooks for an hour. Personally I think that you get a taste from cooking over charcoal or cobblestones which you just can't get from cooking over gas.
