Backyard Chefs Can Grill Like the Pros

Create a New Social Experience This Summer With the Evo Flattop Grill

BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - Summertime grilling is considered by many to be a great American pastime. But how one grills is open to discussion -- should you use charcoal or gas? Take it a step further and choose what the pros are using, a circular flattop grill that delivers results like no other. Evo, the leading manufacturer of circular flattop grills for indoor and outdoor cooking, is changing the way chefs -- and backyard grillmasters are cooking with its premium freestanding grill -- the Evo Professional Outdoor Cart (

Until lately outdoor chefs using traditional grills had to contend with uneven cooking temperatures, food falling into the fire, dangerous flare-ups, and limited cooking techniques. With Evo, none of these factors are an issue -- all the control, safety, and versatility of indoor cooking comes outdoors.

Grilling Experience

With cooking temperatures that range from 225 to 700 degrees and its unique circular flattop design, grilling on an Evo is unlike any other cooking experience. With an Evo, there is a range of direct and indirect cooking methods that can be used -- grill, sauté, toast, sear or stir-fry. When used for direct cooking, it sears the food, preserving and enhancing the natural flavors and nutrients. Or if you prefer, by placing a pot or a pan on the flattop cook surface, foods can be indirectly prepared just like you would on your indoor stovetop. Evo also comes with a stainless steel hood that lets you cover the cooking surface to create an oven for cooking pizza or steaming vegetables. Versatility is synonymous with Evo Flattop Grills, and versatility in cooking is key to making sure your meals come out perfect every time.

The Design

The foundation of the design fundamental to Evo is its patented circular flattop cooking surface. A mechanical masterpiece, it's made from a single piece of slightly crowned plate steel turned with a flanged edge to trap heat. This design gives an even temperature range, edge-to-edge, not unlike a professional French flattop stove. The surface is texture-etched and nickel-plated to promote a nonstick surface that is easy to clean. Using the finest design and materials, the end result is a professional-grade, heirloom quality grill that can last a lifetime.

The Evo Professional Outdoor Wheeled-Cart sells for $3,150.00; the Evo Companion Outdoor Wheeled-Cart is slightly smaller and sells for $2,695.

Evo grills are made in Beaverton, Oregon and designed to last a lifetime, carrying an industry-leading Limited Lifetime Warranty. They are distributed through specialty outdoor lifestyle retailers.
