Product Review – Shooaway

Everyone hates flies, especially when they are hanging around your BBQ of dinner table.  When traveling around Oz those annoying insects can reach plague proportions at some campsites.  The is nothing worse when trying to enjoy happy hour and someone has to constantly be on food alert.  Enter the Shooaway.

The ShooAway is a battery operated device that keeps flies away from your food when dining outdoors, picnicking or BBQing. It’s also great indoors or outdoors when preparing and serving food.

  • HOLOGRAPHIC DOTS – The end of each of ShooAway’s gently rotating blades are patented holographmatic discs. This unique innovation is the key to keeping irritating flies away.

Our Thoughts

The Shooaway performed extremely well for it’s intended purpose. Whilst one product works fine on a small camping table you will need a second item for larger tables.  We tested the Shooaway at out family Christmas lunch at home and found that we needed 2 Shooaways on the table set for 10 people to enjoyed a fly free afternoon.

Many thanks to the team at for supplying a Shooaway for this review.
