Every year in early Spring, the British tabloid newspapers forecast that the forthcoming summer will a ‘Scorcher!’ and likely to break all records.
And sometimes if you say things often enough, they come true. Summer 2014 in Britain is now being predicted by the Met Office itself to be one of the hottest on record.
And yet again this year, the British are discovering the delights of outdoor living!
As happens late Spring probably every year, the patio table and seating has been scrubbed and set out, the barbecue cleaned and strategically positioned, and the fridge suitably stocked up.
However this year, with extended periods of sunshine lasting weeks, people are looking to spend even more time of their outside.
For many, the ‘outdoors’ is becoming an extension of the inside of their houses and consumers are investing in new furniture, lighting and decorations to bring increased comfort to their ‘outdoor living’, often replacing and upgrading last year’s purchases.
At Grenadier, we have witnessed this shift first hand through significantly increased interest in our two ‘outdoor living’ products.
Our ceramic outdoor pizza oven is ideal for those looking to offer their guests a new outdoor dining experience. Wood-fired pizza ovens normally require a significant investment in both garden space and money, whereas the Grenadier outdoor pizza oven is portable and takes up no more space than a traditional kettle barbecue.


Outdoor space heating is always a challenge as soon as the temperature starts to drop during the evening. A chimnea has been a popular choice although its heating impact can be limited. More recently, gas-powered patio heaters have dropped in price and become widely available but these can be expensive to run and not environmentally-friendly.
This probably explains why firepits are becoming increasingly popular, delivering all the delights of an open bonfire constrained within the firepit itself. The design and portability of the Grenadier ceramic firepit means it can even by used on wooden decking without causing scorching.
Currently both the Grenadier outdoor pizza oven and firepit are benefiting from a significant price reduction through the strength of the pound.
So don’t delay, why not order yours now and make the most of ‘Outdoor Living 2014-style’?
