Porsche Engineering Development of the X-Series
Issue 02/2008 of the Porsche Engineering magazine features an article about the development of the X-Series designed by Porsche Design Studio and developed by Porsche Engineering Group GmbH. Some quotes include:
“Even the first sketches by Porsche Design opened up a new era for the Grandhall outdoor kitchen.”
“Fine, black stone elements further highlight the porsche design trademark. Almost straightaway, the stone look reminds us of a freshly asphalted section of racetrack.”
“The engineers pushed the small mobile kitchen to its limits time and time again. Once satisfied, we nod in approval: a job well done!”
“The lever mechanism of the “cabriolet hood” reminds us of something. It opens smoothly, quietly, almost silently. It is a succinct lesson in elementary physics.”
T-Grill Celebrity Cook-off
On the 4th of September Myer held a celebrity cook-off to launch the Grand Hall T-Grill. Celebrities Luke Darcy, Michael Klim, James Tomkins and Andrew Gaze competed to create the best lamb chops and barbecue chicken. Michael Klim was judged the winner by chef Neil Perry and won a T-Grill for a 9am with David and Kim viewer.
Grand Hall presented a full range of outdoor kitchens at Spoga 2008 in Cologne, Germany. We had outstanding reactions with the unveiling of our New Generation products. The highlight was the retro Odeon available in three colours and the eye catching Totum heater.
Introducing Neil Perry's T-Grill
Grand Hall in collaboration with renowned and respected chef Neil Perry began this project in early 2007 to create a fantastic barbecue which combines function and form. “We wanted to create a barbecue that not only looked good, but also was easy and efficient to use. The T-Grill combines the lot and it satisfies my every barbecuing need,” says Neil. Powered by new Crossray® technology, the T-Grill can sear food in seconds, giving you steakhouse results in your own backyard. The T-Grill will be stocked nationwide at leading BBQ retailers in June 2008. See our T-Grill brochure for more information.
T-Grill's Big Brother the DS-Grill
For those of you requiring a bigger cooking space while still wanting optimum power and a stylish designed barbecue, welcome to the DS-Grill. Featuring four Crossray® infrared burners, a pull out gas tank tray and a sleek hood, the DS Grill is excellent for those who love the T-Grill but need more. Visit leading BBQ retailers in June to see it for yourself.
X-Series - A BBQ Revolution
Development for the X-Series is almost complete, and we aim to get it into stores for you by December this year. The first barbecue to be designed by Porsche Design Studio and engineered by Porsche Engineering Group GmbH - the X-Series is something not to be missed. Visit our microsite for more information and images.
About Crossray® Technology
Grand hall spent four years developing the Crossray® burner system and has international patents on this technology. The gas burners are located behind vertically mounted ceramic tiles. When the ceramic tiles heat up they emit infrared heat which is angled onto the cooking surface. The heat from the tiles overlap to create an even surface of heat, similar to cooking on a bed of hot coals. Because the burners are angled and located on the sides, grease doesn’t fall onto the burners, virtually eliminating smoke and flare-ups. Infrared heat penetrates your food, cooking it from the inside out, giving you that great BBQ flavor as juices are sealed inside. The Crossray® infrared burners also use around 25% less gas making them very efficient, yet they are still hotter and faster than traditional burners. Crossray® burners will feature in the new T-Grill, DS-Grill, Odeon and X-Series.
