It’s official, the summer season has started, and time spent outdoors is becoming more and more frequent. Many French people have lunches and dinners in their garden. But which cooking method to choose? Depending on your size, your budget, and your cooking skills, the choice is quite hard. So how do you choose between the barbecue, the brazier, and the plancha? Do not panic, we explain the differences between these three devices.

The most famous of these cooking methods is undoubtedly the essential barbecue. Allowing you to cook almost any food, such as meat or vegetables, it can adapt to your budget and your area given the many types of appliances available on the market. Whether it’s gas, charcoal, or electronic barbecues, you will surely find one that meets your needs.

However, this is not the only cooking method. And yes, the brazier is more and more popular with the French. However, the latter is preferred for fairly large outdoor areas. The brazier is also very useful in winter, because it allows you to warm up, which is its primary purpose. If you choose to turn to the brazier and you are a novice, it is imperative to pay close attention to the safety instructions.

The third and last cooking method available to you is the plancha. The latter is to be chosen if you want to cook all types of food, even the most delicate, such as eggs, or if your surface is very small and you only have a balcony. The griddle is also the easiest appliance to clean. So, which cooking method are you going to turn to?
