One of the stand-out features of the ARTEFLAME grill is its corten-steel construction. This unique base offers an aesthetic component to the design, turning your backyard grill into an attractive accent piece that stands out in any yard. This weathering steel produces a stabilized rust-like finish after being exposed to the weather, all while providing enhanced resistance to deeper corrosion and providing added tensile strength. One of the added benefits of this unique steel alloy is that it can remain in the weather without users having to worry about oxidation damage. All owners have to do is ensure that their cooktop remains clean and free of rust, and they can let the rest of it remain exposed without issue.
ARTEFLAME grills are available in a number of different configurations. The company's latest lineup falls under its One Series brand, which offers a more-affordable, two-piece variant of the company's popular design. The company's 40-inch grill features a single-piece base made from corten steel that's crowned with a removable cooktop constructed from a 0.5-inch slab of hot-rolled steel. The cooktop features a removable grate in the center, which is surrounded by a flat cooking surface that gets cooler toward the outside edge, providing a huge temperature range for backyard grillers to cook a range of foods on, from delicate vegetables to summer barbecue staples like hot dogs and hamburgers. After the grilling is done, the cooktop can be removed to turn the ARTEFLAME into a fire bowl.
To use any of the company's grills, simply load the center bowl with wood and/or charcoal and replace the center grate. The cooktop should be treated like a cast-iron skillet, according to ARTEFLAME's included directions, and should be seasoned with either linseed or flaxseed oil. For cooking, the company recommends using maple, ash or mesquite wood along with fire-ready charcoal.
Three options are available in the ARTEFLAME One Series lineup: 20-inch, 30-inch and 40-inch grills. The 20-inch grill can cook for 5 to 15 people and retails at a suggested price of $699, while the line tops out at the upper end with the company's 40-inch model, designed to cook for a crowd of 50 to 75 people. The suggested retail price on the 40-inch grill is $2,150.
