Arteflame Grills boast a distinctive design, crafted entirely from Corten Steel. This exceptional steel undergoes a natural patina transformation over time and exposure to weather, resulting in an organic appearance that seamlessly harmonizes with the surrounding nature.
Each Arteflame is a meticulously crafted work of art, with no two being identical. These designs are intended to serve as the focal point in any backyard, showcasing their uniqueness and enhancing the overall aesthetic. When in use or not, they serve as the centerpiece of your backyard.
Design Only A Mother Would Love
You don’t buy a Big Green Egg for its design. Nobody has one as the centerpiece of their back yard. It’s relegated to a hidden spot in your yard only to be used when needed.
ARTEFLAME Grill Features The Big Green Egg Misses
Steakhouse Temperature Searing
Only an Arteflame will sear steaks at 1,000F+ for steakhouse quality steaks right in your own backyard. Why do you need it so hot? Because steakhouses know that you need to sear the outside of the steak to lock in the juices. You need 1,000F+ to get a great sear without over cooking the inside. This is the only way to get rare / medium rare steaks in the inside that are seared to perfection on the outside.
Grill All Food Simultaneously
The grill grate is absolutely unique in reaching 1,000F+ but that’s only the start of the story. The entire cooktop heats up from 450F around the grill grate to 250F around the outside. This means that you can grill all your food in the perfect heat zone, all at the same time. And because the solid cooktop doesn’t let the fire touch your food, you never have flare ups or burnt food again! Just watch your food sizzle to perfection every time.
Only One Temperature
Because the Big Green Egg is a single chamber, all food is heated to the same temperature. But food doesn’t cook that way. Searing a steak needs the egg at its peak temperature (750F) which will burn all your veggies to a crisp! This means that you have to cook most of your food inside on the stove or in the oven while you grill the meat in your egg. This is a huge limitation, especially when grilling for a party.
See The Food, Smell The Flavor, Hear The Sizzle
A large part of the enjoyment of grilling is seeing the food. Experience the sizzle and see it grill to perfection. When entertaining, everyone can see the food and get the exact piece they want, the way they like it.
Grilling as a Social Activity
The Arteflame is open, accessible and approachable. Everyone can join in and have fun grilling. Hear the sizzle, see the flames and enjoy the smells of fire, smoke and deliciously grilled foods. The open design of the Arteflame encourages everyone come and have fun grilling.
Closed Lid Design
The Big Green Egg is designed to be closed. This makes it impossible to see what you’re grilling and it is not inviting for others to join. Grilling becomes a solo act where you’re grilling by yourself while everyone else is having fun.
Single Piece Spun Bowl with Modern Pedestal
The Arteflame fire bowl is made from a single piece of Corten steel that is spun into shape. There are no seams or welds and the spinning process produces a unique organic shape. The Arteflame has a removable fire base for easy cleaning. There is a ring welded inside of the top of the fire bowl to give extra strength and to allow it to be lifted and moved easily even when hot.
Contemporary One Piece Design
The 30”Arteflame grills come in two designs. Both feature the same thick solid steel cooktop with center grill grates and all accessories are interchangeable. Each stands 30” tall so they can be used without additional stands or tables.
The Big Green Egg is made entirely from ceramic. Unless, it tips over, it should last a lifetime. The largest 2XL Egg is only 29” (660 sq in.)diameter so the grilling surface is quite a bit less than the Arteflame 30” grills (710 sq in.). The Egg needs a stand or table to sit on as it is too low to grill with by itself.
Fresh air enters from under the Arteflame fire base into the combustion chamber of the fire bowl. The fresh air is then super heated by the fire that sits right on top of the air intake. This super heated air is then injected right into the combustion chamber. Even with the center grill grate installed, this airflow produces incredible heat. It is easy to get the center grill grate over 1,000°F (559°C). This makes it easy to grill steakhouse quality steaks on an Arteflame. It is also great for making pizzeria quality pizzas.
The Arteflame Airflow System
Efficient combustion hinges on proper airflow, and Arteflame prioritizes this crucial element. By drawing in fresh air from the grill's base, the Arteflame ensures a continuous supply of air. This incoming air undergoes superheating before being injected into the combustion chamber, creating a supercharged airflow. This intensified airflow becomes the driving force behind a nearly flawless burn, elevating grill grate temperatures to over 1,000°F (559°C). Achieving such high temperatures is essential for an impeccable steak sear, reminiscent of top steakhouses. The exclusive engineered airflow feature sets Arteflame grills apart.
In contrast, the Ofyr lacks an internal airflow system, leading to persistent smoke issues and inadequate heat.
The pizza grill grate sits flush with the cooktop. This makes it easy to slide pizzas in and out of the oven. The oven is open to the front so it is easy to see your pizza and get it perfect. The pizza oven temperature can exceed 1,000°F (559°C) just like in the pizzeria so you get that perfect crust !
The oven sits right on top of the fire using the included special pizza grill grate. The oven temperature can reach 1,000°F (559°C) just like a real pizzeria pizza oven. The high temperature gives you that perfect pizzeria crust with a nice wood smoke flavor.
The Ofyr pizza oven is raised above the fire which dramatically reduces the heat in the oven. Pizza needs high heat to make a great crust and melt the toppings. The Arteflame pizza oven sits right on top of the fire and reaches the same temperature as a real pizzeria brick pizza oven.
The Arteflame pizza oven is a very popular accessory as it can get to over 1,000°F (559°C) and makes pizzeria quality wood fired pizzas! A pizzeria uses wood fired brick ovens to achieve these temperatures as this temperature is needed to get the perfect crust while grilling the toppings at the same time. Pizzeria quality crusts are crispy on the outside without being overcooked on the inside.
At this temperature, a pizza will be ready to enjoy within 90 seconds!
The Arteflame accessory ring allows for the optional "Food Saver" to lock into the center of the cooktop. When using the grill grate riser to keep food warm and give a wood flavor, the food saver avoids food from rolling right into the open center.
Perfect For All Your Food
The Arteflame allows the grill grate to lay flush with the cooktop. Having the grill grate so close to the fire makes searing steaks super efficient and easy. The grill grate can get over 1,000°F (559°C) to perfect the sear on your steaks. It is easy to grill steakhouse quality steaks on an Arteflame. The flush grill grate also makes moving food on and off the center grill grate absolutely seamless.
Nothing But Meat
OFYR does not offer a flush grill grate because of airflow limitations. Ofyr only offers a raised grill grate that sits high above the fire. For maximum heat, you need the grill grate to sit right above the fire, like the Arteflame.
How an Arteflame is born...
Every Arteflame is made by hand with exceptional care. Our grills will last a lifetime and we take great pride in producing the best functioning and the best looking grills available. All the Arteflame bowls are spun from a single piece of Corten steel so there are no seams or welds. We are unique in using this process. Click on the video to see how it is done.
Side tables are a great addition to any grill. Perfect for keeping food warm or if you need some extra space to put down your utensils, spices, etc. The Arteflame warming side table is also used for the wood cutting board. It is important not to leave the wooden board outside as the sun will dry it out quickly. The Arteflame wooden cutting board doubles as a serving platter.
