The Arteflame Classic 40" grill with tall round base and cooktop elevate the art of outdoor cooking with the sleek, contemporary look and 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.

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

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.

Amazing Piece of Equipment

Overall, the Arteflame experience is excellent. The grill is versatile and exciting to use. It's a focal point at every party and event and can be used to cook a wide range of items. Shipping is quick and easy and the staff is incredibly helpful. As someone who moves the item from place to place, it's a little cumbersome. It does come with tools needed for transport, but requires several people and is not the easiest item to transport. While this will not impact the majority of people who use the grill, something to note for those that may have that need. Would by another in the near future in a heartbeat.

Arteflame Classic 40

This is an amazing grill. I have not had it very long and still learning, but it is a lot of fun to cook on. The 40” is huge and you can cook just about everything on this. It's a really nice centerpiece in the backyard and had many great comments on it.

The James Bond of Grills

Sophisticated. Captivating. Eye-turning. Suave. Complexity. The Arteflame grill captures the attention of the audience around it. Grilling on this sculpture makes me feel like the world’s craftiest spy, mesmerizing my audience with “Oohs” and “Ahhs”. There is a learning curve on mastering the grill’s intricacies, but I love a good challenge and the rewards are delicious! Thank you Arteflame for creating such a unique experience.

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.
