Recommended Counter Opening Size: Counter Openings should be 1/2” larger than the size selected. For example, a 36”x24” unit would require a 36.5”x24.5” counter opening. Our measurements are precise so many customers build their islands while their grill is in production. When it arrives they drop it right in. 

48” and larger models can have either a single or dual independent crank configuration.

We use only 304 Grade Stainless Steel materials use an 8-step stainless manufacturing process for maximum rust resistance. 

  1. Laser cut stainless parts.
  2. Specialized Plastic rolling dies to minimize cross contamination.
  3. First Polish with specialized stainless grinder/pad prior to welding.
  4. Tig welded to minimize heat dissipation in material, ensure a clean filler metal with no contaminates, and a nice clean weld appearance.
  5. Final Grinding and polishing.
  6. Welds are passivated with a specialized machine ensuring that the stainless protective layer is formed again.
  7. We then rinse the entire grill with a specialized stainless cleaner to ensure any contaminates are removed from the grill.
  8. Finish off with a polish.

Without passivation stainless welds are likely to form a rust. Read more about the importance of passivation and why all stainless grills are not created equal!
