About

The idea began when I fused in my mind the ancient brick oven, the BBQ grill and the food steamer. Why not build one single gadget to do it all? Like a Swiss Army knife for the kitchen. The first GrillOven prototype was built almost two years ago, it was quite similar to the actual ones, a set of three parts: a bottom to receive and transmit heat with the possibility to take water, a mesh or grill in the middle topped by a dome with a rolling top. 

The result was fabulous, the GrillOven was born. From that moment on it has become an indispensable assistant in our kitchen and outdoors for chores such as: 


All the folks who saw it in action or used the first prototype felt I should put the GrillOven into production and market it; besides how good it looked, It worked beautifully! So I decided to embark on this project.


After two years of R&D (research and destroy) we are now ready to pull the trigger. We've come a long way towards our goal of bringing the project to life but we're still facing a $ 35.000 investment for molds, manufacturing the first 500 unit batch and associated expenses. By pre-ordering your GrillOven, you'll help us get it off the ground.

 The GrillOven is ideal for dinners for only one or two. It avoids heating up your large oven and the kitchen and because of its dome shape, which circulates the heat, the GrillOven retains the heat better and cooks more efficiently and faster, saving you time and energy; also, the materials we will be using to make it are of high quality, guarantying a long lifespan. Efficiency throughout.


Even though it is smaller than a toaster oven, the GrillOven can perfectly bake, grill, heat or smoke many of your favorite foods, but in smaller quantities. That's another advantage of the GrillOven, you can cook healthier meals in smaller portions.

The final GrillOvens will look slightly different from our prototypes, which were largely hand-made. The final units have been designed as 3 pieces of steel and metal alloys to fit easily together.

Our evolution over time
Our evolution over time

 The GrillOven Steamer is the newest SIMPLE, HEALTHY and EXCITING way to cook your favorite food. The amazingly versatile GrillOven can steam, grill and prepare convenience food to perfection. One of its main features is the ability to prepare healthier foods by melting away the fat with steam molecules. The convenient sliding door lets you check on your meals and control heat or steam intensity to achieve ideal results. Here are some of the advantages of cooking with the GrillOven:

#Steam Promotes Salt and Fat reduction

Steaming guarantees the preservation of subtle aromas, the full flavour and the natural colour of the products/ingredients. In addition, the minerals and vitamins are preserved in an optimal way and all dishes are light.

#Salt - Steaming meats reduces their fat and salt content whilst preserving vitamins and nutrients, sealing the taste and flavors, therefore during cooking, salt in the interior of food is absorbed by moisture on the food surface. Salt levels both inside and on the surface of the food drip away, helping to reduce the salt content.

#Fat – Fat content in food is also reduced in a similar way to that of salt content. As the temperature of the GrillOven is high, food is bathed with steam, cooking food quicker through to the core. This process helps to reduce excess fat contained in the interior of foods leaving a delicious and healthy meal.

#Retaining Vitamins – As steam fills the dome, cooking at a low oxygen density slows down fat oxidation, so meat and fish cook deliciously, minimizing damage to food cells and helping to prevent the loss of food flavour, moisture and nutrients such as Vitamin C.

#Smoking  is a healthy way of adding wood or wine flavor without using fat, salt or oil: low-calorie cooking! There are 2 ways of smoking: cold and hot. “Cold smoking” is done at a temperature below 30°C and can take a very long time (3-20 hours). This method only adds flavour and does not cook the ingredients. Hot smoking is done at a temperature between 60°C and 80°C. A lasting smoked product is developed which leads to a nice and juicy serving.

As we were developing the GrillOven, we analyzed the typical cooking processes with existing meat smokers and fused the basic concepts to achieve the desired result of a tasty and juicy meat. For best results, soak the wood (guava is our favorite) shavings in water or wine for 30 minutes before putting them into the bottom of he GrillOven scattered around the hot charcoal.

The GrillOven will be constructed mainly of industrial quality stainless steel but we will be offering a special edition of 100 units made out of copper. We chose SS due to its many physical properties. It is the most used material for food processing because it does not corrode, it does not alter the food's flavor or color, it´s very easy to clean, providing hygiene in food handling and processing and It is dishwasher safe.

The minimal form of the GrillOven will be shaped via CNC machining, her beauty by way of her finish—hand assembled, hard and sturdy. A tool for your kitchen for many years to come.

Ecofriendly - Non electric appliance made through low impact

processes  to the environment. Packaging from recycled material.

  •  3 PIECES: bottom: metal alloy, grill: steel wire, dome: stainless steel
  • SIZE: 24 cm. diameter (9,5"), 13 cm. height (5")
  •  WEIGHT: 680 gr. (24,2 oz) 
  • CARE: dishwasher safe
  •  WORKS ON: electric, gas and cast iron stoves and ceramic cooktops.

Staying informed of the advances in the production of the GrillOven is half the fun. We will absolutely share our experiences and update our progress weekly.

We've worked very hard to bring the GrillOven to life and we'd love nothing more than to expedite production so we can get one of these into your hands as quickly as possible. To do so we need your help. We recognize how fortunate we are to have this amazing platform, Kickstarter, as a means to enlist your support. Give us the chance and we'll put a smile on your face and a healthy meal on your plate.

All funds will go directly towards the development and manufacturing of the GrillOvens and fulfilling the rewards, including: 

• Buying components, raw materials and molds • Production •  Quality Control >Testing • Safety and agency fees > Packaging & Shipping.

Up to this date, all the working prototypes have been completed and tested. Manufacturing will begin once all funds are collected and materials bought. Our goal is to start production on January 2015 and deliver the first batch by the middle of March 2015.

Risks and challenges

JUST IN CASE. We are entirely devoted to the GrillOven project and after our (successful) kickstarter campaign, making sure we can coordinate to deliver just on time will be the next big task. We will spare no effort to have things rolling and we will keep our communication clear and open with our backers so you can be informed on every step of the process. We have contemplated a set back period of 30 days, from (light) acts of God to more earthly mishaps, to correct our course. If all falls into schedule, our backers should be receiving their GrillOvens before the posted dates.

TIMELINE. The first GrillOvens are scheduled to be delivered on March 15 2015, but we will post updates about the progress as we reach the different stages of production.
