Grill Steakhouse Restaurant Quality food at home with an Arteflame Insert.

Why buy an Arteflame insert?

Now you can achieve steakhouse quality meals at home with the addition of an Arteflame insert that fits your Green Egg / Kamado.  Once you swap your old grate out for the Arteflame plancha / griddle insert you are on your way to grilling your meals the same way they do at top steakhouse restaurants.

The plancha gives the perfect sear while not overcooking the inside of your steak. While the steak is sizzling in it's own juices, it naturally picks up the great smokey flavor from the live fire. The juices from traditional grill grates drip down into the fire along with the flavor. Live wood fire seasons the meat naturally, with a taste you cannot achieve any other way. Most importantly, the plancha griddle gets super hot, which is the key to sealing in great taste and flavor.  Nothing will ever compare to this formula. That is why the top restaurant steakhouse steaks taste so great.
The solid cooktop is also ideal for grilling vegetables, poultry or a complete breakfast.  Try bacon and eggs!


The Arteflame Big Green Egg inserts include three 3" risers in the 18" and 24” sizes. These risers clip onto the outer edge of the insert and raise it so that the plancha sits just below the felt gasket of your egg.  This makes it very convenient to grill without having to reach into the grill. The Arteflame insert for the Kamado versions have locating holes so they can be used on top of the flexible cooking rack.

Unparalleled Quality with Attention to Detail:

  1. Arteflame only uses certified steel. This steel is cleaned, rinsed and scale free. This is a crucial distinction between less expensive cooktop surfaces that are unsafe for cooking, materials that can make you ill, deteriorate quickly or chip and break.
  2. When steel is made, an oxide layer referred to as “scale” appears. This is due to the scaly nature of its appearance that develops on the surface of the steel.  This scale contains all the impurities in the steel that come to the surface when the steel cools.  Arteflame uses an extensive cleaning process that removes any scale and all other impurities before we even start manufacturing.  This results in the smooth, clean Arteflame insert surface you see and grill on. 
  3. Arteflame steel then gets precision cut on expensive laser machines, wiped clean and oiled. This insures every Arteflame insert will have a smooth, food grade surface where no food particles can lodge and hide. 
  4. This step, while more expensive, ensures a top quality product that is immediately ready for cooking and also guaranteed to be food grade safe. 
Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron
  1. Carbon Steel and Cast Iron are very similar.  This is why both are very good for cooking and grilling.  The main difference is that Carbon Steel contains about 1% Carbon while Cast Iron contains 2% - 3% Carbon.  This difference might not sound like much but the carbon effects the grain structure of the metal.
  2. When Cast Iron is heated unevenly, the heat differential causes stress in the metal as the thermal expansion is uneven.  When this stress encounters a pocket of carbon, Cast Iron cracks.  This is also why Cast Iron often breaks when it is dropped.  The area of high carbon is extremely brittle and can’t stand the shock.
  3. In a grill, the heat is never uniform.  This makes cast Iron an especially poor choice for grill inserts.  For this reason, all Arteflame cooktops, inserts, griddles and Burger Pucks are made of only Carbon Steel.
  4. Center Grill Grate INCLUDED (except for solid plancha models)
  5. Select Inserts have locating holes to accommodate manufacture's accessories
  6. 18" and 24" Green Egg Style inserts include 3" spacers to elevate the insert
  7. Various Grill Grate Replacement Insert Sizes Available for a Perfect Fit
  8. Use with wood or charcoal
  9. Precision laser cut from solid US steel for ready to use food grade finish
  10. Virtually maintenance-free: 60 second clean up
  11. Cooktop seasons with use
  12. Made in USA, guaranteed not to break or crack
  13. *Grill NOT INCLUDED* with purchase
  14. Arteflame is not Affiliated in any way with Kamado or The Big Green Egg Company

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

    Love it!

    I got this for my Weber Komado charcoal, and although it isn't listed for this grill, the 24in. does fit nice. The included spacers provide enough air to keep it hot and also rake coals underneath if needed. Only problem is you can't close the lid with spacers on. Wear some heavy gloves, lift griddle to take spacers off then settle it back down in grill. Will choke off air to coals but you should be done grilling or close to it anyway. Will still keep hot for a while. I have done a ton of things on this grill and highly recommend it!

    NOPE!

    Mostly a solid pice, but the 3” risers are poorly designed… too loose, and fall off when you remove the griddle. Sadly, on my Kamado Joe grill this means they can fall between the ceramic inserts and the wall of the bbq requiring disassembly of the entire unit to recover the poorly designed part. Disappointing for an otherwise well made item. I contacted customer service to see if they could send a few extra risers but was told I needed to purchase extras for $12 plus about $20 in shipping to fix their poorly designed risers. For this reason I would not recommend this product. Too bad because it is so close to great.

    As good as it gets!

    Pancakes, bacon and eggs for our 4th of July breakfast on Arteflame grill top was awesome. Quick clean up and off to the Parade! Really one of the best purchases I've made in a long while!
