    Testimonial Barbecue Bible 5/5 stars If the mythic gods of fire had an earthly temple, the Arteflame grill could serve as it's baptismal font. Its design, at once primeval and modern, symbolizes mankind's relationship with the awesome power of fire.
    Testimonial Martha Stewart
    Testimonial Martha Stewart 5/5 stars I love this grill - it's made of half-inch carbon steel and corten "weathering" steel with a cooktop that heats from the center out.
    Testimonial Steven Raichlen
    Testimonial Steven Raichlen 5/5 stars It looks like a Claus Oldenburg sculpture. It functions like a wood burning grill & plancha. It's great for steak, fragile fish, veggies and everything in between.
