The media and chefs are saying:

The New York Times

“A cult favorite among chefs. ”

Dan Barber, owner and Executive Chef, Blue Hill at Stone Barns

“The Infierno started as a collaboration between Blue Hill and Grillworks ― a grill we could customize to our style of cooking, and to our food. Which is exactly what we got ― a grill that is not only beautiful (it is a centerpiece of conversation in the restaurant), but also versatile, serving alternately as grill, hearth, broiler, smoker and more. It is such a dynamic machine that we now customize our style of cooking to it. We're constantly challenged to use it to its full advantage, which makes it less like a tool than a source of inspiration.”

James Beard (1903 - 1985), dean of classic American cuisine

The customers are saying:

“We bought our first Grillery over 20 years ago. When we added on a new kitchen we also bought a new Grillery for the deck, but couldn't easily let the old one go. Friends took it and replaced one or two small parts and now it's good to go for another 20 years. You don't really own a Grillery, you just hold it for the next generation.”

–Edward Malette, Houston TX
