Get the right size patio gas bottle for your BBQ

Three 5kg Calor Patio gas bottles
Summer is right around the corner, and with lockdown restrictions beginning to ease across the UK, many are planning to spend their summer evenings catching up with friends and family. 

As barbecuing is one of the nation’s favourite activities, it’s no doubt many will be firing up their grills over the coming weeks and months. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’ve got the right size gas bottle for your needs, without oversizing and spending more than you need to.

Whether you’re planning on having a gas BBQ, firing up the pizza oven or just want to keep warm outdoors with a table-top patio heater as the evenings draw in, the 5kg Patio gas could be the perfect gas bottle solution for you.

A small bottle with big potential

5kg Patio gas bottles are the perfect size for small to medium sized BBQs. They’re also ideal for pizza ovens and table-top patio heaters, which are becoming increasing popular garden products. The 5kg gas bottle will provide all the gas you need to keep the food on the go and the temperature outdoor just right. Unlike the 13kg Patio, the 5kg is small and light, making it easier to carry, whilst saving you valuable storage space in your garden.

Although it may be smaller in size, the 5kg Patio gas bottle is big on cooking. It will provide up to 14 BBQ sessions based on a 3 burner BBQ with side-burner, operating at full power for 30 minutes each time. It also comes with a handy built-in Gas Trac® Indicator which lets you know when you’re running low, giving you plenty of time to arrange a refill to keep you going throughout the season. Plus, when it comes to refilling it’s as simple as exchanging your empty bottle for a new one, so you can spend less time replacing your gas bottle and more time cooking and socialising. 

Not just for BBQ’s

So, whether you’re getting ready for an al-fresco pizza night or you want to keep warm once the sun goes down, the 5kg will provide plenty of gas for a long summer evening in the garden.
