As successful producer of charcoal grills, we introduced the innovative lavagrills, fueled by gas, in early 80's to complete our full-round offering. Such units are characterised to be very easy to use and clean, and moreover for simple maintenance.

Burners are placed below a lava rock layer and aim to heat them up. By nature, lava rocks are porous, with small holes throughout the rock. This makes them an excellent heat-holding source, allowing to distribute heat throughout the grill, into areas where the gas flames may not otherwise reach. The lava rocks absorb the heat from the gas flame and hold and distribute it to any area the lava rocks are placed, creating a more widespread cooking area as well as greater heat throughout the grill.

Other features: Cooking surface with height adjustable by means of front levers, Cooking surface available in V-bars (meat) or round-bars (fish & vegetables), Easy to clean collecting fat tray, available countertop or base stand-alone units, all type of gas compatible.

Grills are CE marked to meet severe European directives of consumer protection and safety.
Our charcoal grills are made up of high quality materials making them durable and corrosion resistant, engineered to last a lifetime. Without remove the grill, in each model is possible to upset the cooking grill as well as to adjust the height for easy and precise cooking.

All solid fueled grills are available on trolley (with locking casters), as a drop-in units (suitable for installation in customer's own islands), or stand-alone complete with base (with service drawers) and hood. All units can be enhanced by means of our De Luxe decorative elements or tailored to customer requirements.

The lavastone grill is a piece of equipment for cooking all type of food like meat, fish, and vegetables, and maintaining the full original flavours. The main characteristics rendering the lava-stone grill indispensable to cook at professional level are the cleanliness in conformity with hygene regulations, quick cooking times, and bringing out flavours.
