Otto’s O.F.B.: your 970˚C/1700˚F grill for the perfect steak

Otto’s O.F.B. (over-fired broiler) brings steakhouse quality to your home! Our German engineered specialized infrared gas grill reaches temperatures of up to 970˚C/1700˚F within minutes and enables you to easily and quickly grill the perfect steak at home. Through these high temperatures your steak gets a delicious caramelized crust from the outside while its center stays juicy and tender. Of course you can also use it to prepare other meats such as chicken breast and pork belly, or fish, vegetables and desserts.

You love steaks? So do we! To be able to prepare it in the best possible way like your favorite steakhouse we developed a grill that gives your steak what it needs: high temperatures of up to 970˚C/1700˚F. Such high temperatures are necessary for getting the steak a nice crust from the outside (for the (future-) experts among you: the process behind this is called Maillard reaction) while it remains tender and moist from the inside. The super hot temperatures are facilitated through the grill's infrared technology, which produces radiant instead of convection heat. Otto's O.F.B. is a high quality product made in Germany - there’s simply no other way to prepare the perfect steak at home!

Otto’s O.F.B. is incredibly easy and comfortable to use. At the core of Otto’s O.F.B. are two infrared gas units, which send out the heat from the top. This ensures that the heat is evenly distributed – as opposed to the classical bottom heat, which is disturbed by dropping meat juices leading to unevenly cooked steaks. Here are the key features of Otto’s O.F.B.:

Grilling the perfect steak with Otto’s O.F.B. is incredibly simple – you can’t get it wrong. Heat up the grill for about 3 minutes until it has reached its full temperature. Place your steak on the grid and grill it for about one minute from each side, depending on the cut, until it gets a tasty brown crust. The drip tray in the bottom of the grill collects the meat juices so that you can use them to prepare a delicious sauce in seconds. When your steak has developed a nice crust from the outside (Maillard reaction), let it rest in the bottom of the grill for some minutes until it has reached your desired cooking level. Use a meat thermometer if you want. Within a few minutes your perfect steak will be ready to serve – it's never been so easy to prepare the most delicious steak at home! Of course, you can use Otto’s O.F.B. applying reverse searing technique or combine it with Sous Vide cooking. Otto’s O.F.B. is not only for steak – you can also use it to prepare other meats, burgers, fish, vegetables and desserts.

Ottos O.F.B. (over-fired broiler) bringt Steakhaus Qualität zu Dir nach Hause! Unser Spezial-Infrarot-Gasgrill erreicht in kürzester Zeit Temperaturen von bis zu 970˚C/1700˚F und ermöglicht Dir so, das perfekte Steak einfach und schnell zu Hause zuzubereiten. Durch die hohen Temperaturen bekommt Dein Steak eine leckere karamellisierte Kruste, während es innen saftig und zart bleibt. Natürlich kann man mit Ottos O.F.B. auch andere Fleischsorten zubereiten, z.B. Hühnchen, Schweinebauch, Würstchen oder auch Fisch, Gemüse und Dessert.

Ottos O.F.B ist einfach und bequem zu bedienen. Kernstück von Ottos O.F.B. sind die zwei Infrarot-Gaseinheiten, die ihre Wärme von oben abstrahlen. Dadurch wirkt sich die Temperatur gleichmäßig auf dem Fleisch aus – anders als bei der klassischen Unterhitze, wo eine gleichmäßige Garung oftmals z.B. durch herunterfallende Fetttropfen beeinträchtigt wird. Hier die Kern-Eigenschaften von Ottos O.F.B. im Überblick:

Ganz einfach: nach nur drei Minuten Vorheizen ist Ottos O.F.B. startklar. Das Steak wird auf den Rost gelegt und von jeder Seite für etwa eine Minute gegrillt, je nach Cut, bis es eine leckere braune Kruste bekommt. Die mitschwingende Fettfangschale unter dem Rost fängt die Fleischsäfte auf, sodass sie zur Zubereitung von Saucen verwendet werden können. Sobald das Steak außen eine Kruste gebildet hat (Maillard Reaktion), sollte es im unteren Garraum für einige Minuten nachziehen, bis es den gewünschten Garzustand erreicht hat (hierzu kann ein Fleischthermometer benutzt werden). Innerhalb weniger Minuten ist Dein perfektes Steak fertig! Es war noch nie so einfach, das beste Steak zu Hause zuzubereiten. Natürlich kann Ottos O.F.B. wunderbar in Kombination mit Sous Vide verwenden. Ottos O.F.B. ist nicht nur für Steak geeignet – Du kannst auch wunderbar andere Gerichte damit zubereiten, wie z.B. Burger, Fisch, Gemüse und Desserts.

 So einfach gelingt der beste Cheeseburger auf Ottos O.F.B.:

Risks and challenges

Mass manufacturing:
Otto Wilde Grillers is pioneering mass manufacturing of a high temperature gas grill for home use. Our team has >40 years of manufacturing experience bringing complex products to market with very low failure rate, and great relationships with manufacturers who understand the ins and outs of manufacturing our product as well as we do.

Certification:
We have successfully started the certification process for the European market and are about to do so for the US. For Australia and Canada we will start the process in the upcoming months. While we have reflected the timing in our project timeline, unexpected delays may occur due to regulatory differences and particularities.

Delivery:
We intend to begin shipping all pre-ordered grills latest in July for EU countries, latest in October for the US and at the beginning of 2017 for Australia and Canada. This should give us time to get the required product certifications and manufacture your O.F.B. However, please keep in mind that with new products, issues may arise that are out of our control.
