On display at the 2017 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) was the Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill - the world’s first estate-scaled, 360-degree walk around grill, according to Caliber. The grill was made custom for David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group, a cross-disciplinary architecture and design firm, exclusively as an installation for one of Rockwell’s projects.
Designed to make grilling a more social experience, the grill allows guests to stand on all four sides during grilling and provides a focal area when keeping food warm while entertaining. It features a fully retractable patent pending “disappearing” lid with a special counterbalance mechanism that allows for a smooth transition from open to close with ease. When opened, the hood disappears under the cooking element creating a grilling surface that is accessible from all sides.
This grill also features a unique 20,000 BTU patent-pending Crossflame Burner for ultra-even grilling plus radiant technology. The freestanding exterior grill is built from heavy-gauge, powder coated, aviation-grade aluminum and is draped over a custom Brazilian cherry stand with a hand-rubbed finish.
The Rockwell by Caliber grill comes standard in 304 stainless steel and is available as a 2-burner 42″ model and a 3-burner 48″ model for custom/built-in applications. Custom RAL colors and wood handle upgrades are also available on freestanding and built-in applications.
Caliber displayed the grill at KBIS to an enthusiastic audience.
