The Arteflame Classic 40" grill with tall round base is also available with storage.  It has the same sleek look with outstanding functionality.  Building a wood or charcoal fire in the center of the grill, the cook top heats from the center out. This heat pattern results in higher cooking temperatures closer in as compared to the outer edges so a variety of foods can be cooked at various temperatures all at the same time. When not in use as a grill, Arteflame can also be enjoyed as a fire bowl with the cooktop on or off, providing warmth and a social and serene ambiance.

The Arteflame Classic 40" grill is a one of a kind grilling experience. The cooktop is made of 1/2" carbon steel and the spun bowl is a high grade of US CORTEN steel or "weathering" steel. The round base is also crafted of CORTEN steel and is designed with "Classic" lines and unsurpassed functionality. 

All Arteflame Classic grills have the accessory ring under the cooktop so that the optional sizzle grate can be dropped in and lay flush with the cooktop.

The Classic 40 with the tall storage base has the same sleek look from the front as the regular tall round base.  The back however is open and has 2 shelves for storage.  Perfect for placing your grill utensils or fire wood.  Anything you'd like to keep close at hand while grilling.

If you are looking for some storage space underneath your Arteflame, you want the Tall Round base With Storage.  Perfect for storing your utensils, charcoal or firewood.  The stainless steel shelve is removable in case you want to just store firewood.  The stainless shelve divides the storage space into two 10" compartments (18 1/2" deep by 20" wide).  The internal draining system ensures al rain water drains away from the storage compartment.

 See specifications tab at the bottom of this page for specification & product details.

  • Arteflame grills are designed to last a lifetime so they are all steel and very heavy.  Complete product pallets can weigh over 500lbs.!

Note: When your grill arrives, the cooktop will be silver (unseasoned). It will develop the dark color shown in the images once it has been seasoned and used several times.

I finally did it.

I had been looking at this grill for well over a year and exhausted any and all videos on youtube that could be found on it. I did this with many grills that were wood fired though. Some reason I came back to the Arteflame over and over as likely my next grill. It is just different. Knowing that this is a lifetime grill was really my main justification when it came to selling it to my wife. Although our neighbors and my family sit by a fire often on weekend nights and was also able to use this as another reason we should have it. Been through several fire pits before. What held me back for so long was the price. However I did have a little unexpected money come in so I pulled the trigger. I have had it less than 2 weeks and used it 5 out of the first 6 nights. I was off for the holidays. Hard to use this during the weekdays as it takes some time to get going and get as hot as you likely want to grill with. I kept my old trusty weber around for the weekday. But I look forward to the weekend to grill and try new things. So far I have tried many things from eggs, to ribeye and filets, chicken wings over the flames using the extender and grate. I even threw a coconut rum soaked pineapple on the rotisserie and basted it for 3 hours with brown sugar and cinnamon. I have cooked burgers, sausages, toasted slices of a French baguette for bruschetta, shrimp skewers. Man writing this review I am appalled at how much food has been cooked over it already. We stood by the fire after each cook and just enjoyed the pool deck. The heat radiates down below from the bowl as well so sitting on a bar stool chair on our 40" , our lower halves still stayed plenty warm. We did level the grill and it does lean to the center. However, a sloppy cook and an accident from time to time can get grease on your decking. For us we have pavers and you can see some remnants of our mistakes. I would say invest in a grilling matt. Maybe a couple to accommodate the large diameter of the grill top. All else is good. Oh. They also gave me a military discount. Plus on top of that I did email several times with questions and within minutes they were replying back. The experience has been wonderful.

Great grill!

Very excited to have the grill. The set-up was a bit intimidating. I am still not sure I got it right.

Important Information

Note: When your insert arrives, the cooktop will be silver (unseasoned). It will develop the dark color shown in the images once it has been seasoned and used several times.

Seasoning Your Arteflame

When cooking oil is subjected to high heat, the long chains of fat molecules break down into short-chain polymers that bond with the cooktop and form a glaze. This is seasoning. It is smooth and non-stick, similar to Teflon. It also forms a natural barrier between air and the steel, acting as the first line
of defense against rust. Looking at the Arteflame carbon steel cooktop under a microscope, the surface is actually porous and these pores open when the cooktop heats up. Seasoning bakes right into these pores, filling them in and smoothing them out. This is what produces the even, slick, seasoned surface. Over time, as layer after layer of seasoning builds up, the cooktop becomes completely seasoned as the seasoning securely bonds to the previous layers and the steel.

How to Season Your Arteflame

The Arteflame seasoning pucks are formulated specifically for seasoning the cooktop and make it easy. You can also season your Arteflame cooktop very simply with regular use! Every time you grill and heat oil or fat for an extended period of time on the cooktop, you have the opportunity to add a thin, durable layer of seasoning. These thin layers build on each other like coats of paint on a wall, slowly but surely forming a resilient, ultra-slick surface. Using the seasoning pucks make this process easy. When it comes to good seasoning that lasts, we can’t stress the importance of thin layers enough. Compare it to thick coats of paint on a windowsill; once air and moisture sneak past the surface and work their way down to the wood beneath, those coats will start to peel off like a giant scab. On your cooktop, thick layers of seasoning will scrape off in the same way. Only the thin layers, molecularly bonded to the cooktop and each other will stand the test of time.

When you fire up your Arteflame the first few times, it can be hard to get the cooktop to season evenly. What and how you cook as well as hot spots on your cooktop will influence how the initial coats of seasoning form. They can appear in patches rather than a perfectly even layer. Patchy seasoning is perfectly fine, it allows layers of seasoning to interlock and strengthen
each other forming a truly durable layers of seasoning.

For best results, gradually heat up the cooktop to bake the seasoning into the surface, not just on top of it. To season, you need to reach the smoking temperature of the oil. At this point the oil breaks down into carbon and short-chain polymers that bond with the steel. If the cooktop is too cold for the oil to smoke, the oil won’t polymerize and won’t bond to the cooktop. If the cooktop is too hot, the oil will skip past the polymer stage and go straight into completely burnt carbon. Thus it is key to heat up your cooktop slowly and apply the oil before it starts to smoke.

Best Oils for Seasoning

The Arteflame seasoning pucks are formulated specifically for seasoning the cooktop. If you don’t have one, then the best fat polymerization comes from oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids like Grapeseed Oil. These compounds thicken and harden once exposed to air. Saturated fats like lard and coconut oil don’t work well as they don’t open sufficient bonding points for carbon molecules to adhere to the molten polymers. Flaxseed oil can be brittle and prone to flaking. Grapeseed Oil strikes the best balance.

To start seasoning, pour a tiny amount of grapeseed oil onto your cooktop and spread it evenly using a paper towel. You only need a very little bit, just enough to evenly coat the cooktop with a very thin film. That’s it—no more oil than that. Wipe off any excess oil so the cooktop looks almost dry. It might not look like much but that is plenty of oil to form a perfect super-thin layer. This is exactly what you want. Your goal is to bake a layer of seasoning into the cooktop, not on top of it!

Avoid Acidic Foods

Tomatoes, wine, citrus, and vinegar can eat away the seasoning, so keep the tomato sauce away from your cooktop. Once your cooktop is properly seasoned, a little acid here and there is not a problem. Just be aware that acidic foods like lemons, tomatoes, wine and vinegar will penetrate the seasoning and will leave your cooktop looking patchy and/or with rust spots. Make sure you wipe away acid foods and apply oil to avoid this.
