The BBQ was something that John Lewis wanted cleaning so that they could re-sell it. It had been used by a customer but taken back to John Lewis. At the John Lewis Home store in the Outlet centre in Swindon they sell items that have been returned or have been damaged at reduced prices. The BBQ, a Weber Genesis, (although if you click on the last link it wasn't this actual model it was the cheaper black one see Black Weber Genesis) was covered in grease and looked unsightly. After a couple of hours cleaning though it was sparkling and shiny as new. Apparently these BBQs sell for £599 (or more) new so it was worth John Lewis getting it cleaned professionally by us.
The AGA cooker was a four oven one (one of the first deluxe 4 oven AGAs with a continuous towel rail at the front) and was the worst one I have ever seen, I don't think it had ever been cleaned. Ovens three and four were particulary dirty (we clean the insides of these on 4 oven AGA cookers) It took me three and half hours of hard graft to get it looking good. Phew one big AGA cleanGoogle+
