The Kitchn tested Fuego's Element Grill
a while back and summed it up as a "really, really pretty" design with a small footprint and an "easy, straightforward" cooking surface. A similar design approach extends to the rest of Fuego's product line, which includes a new portable grill and a modular outdoor kitchen.Based in San Francisco and spearheaded by Alex Siow and Robert Brunner — the former Director of Design at Apple and partner at Pentagram — Fuego is a new company that's positioned itself at the forefront of high-style grilling.
This year, they debuted the Element Portable Grill, a sleek little design that packs up into a carrying case and sells for about $150. They've also launched a modular indoor/outdoor stainless steel kitchen that they describe as "equal parts modernist dreamscape and culinary powerhouse." The modular kitchen and its parts top out the high end of the catalog, starting around $3,000 each. In between is the Element gas barbecue grill, which ranges between $325 and $600.
Fuego products can be found at major appliance stores across the US. Any first-hand reviews of Feugo grills and kitchens? Share them in the comments below.
