Whether it’s indoor or outdoor items you’re crushing on, Esther N McCarthy offers some intriguing items to choose from this week.
For those who love to dine al fresco, if the weather gods would just oblige, you’ll be interested to know that on Thursday, June 27, Lidl will launch a free-standing multi-function outdoor pizza oven for €119.99. This includes a cordierite pizza stone, meaning you can cook artisan-style pizzas up to 12in and it can cook BBQ-style treats and smoked fish and meats.
Made from steel and finished in black high-temperature paint, the oven comes with a chrome-plated cooking grill, integrated temperature gauge, a wire bottom to neatly store logs and an ash catcher. www.lidl.ie
