Many foodies balk at the notion that outdoor cooking should be reserved for hot dogs and hamburgers. Lucky for them, Lynx makes products perfect for preparing any sort of meal in the great outdoors-and has even earned a Luxist award nomination for its efforts.
Lynx Professional Grills was founded in 1996 by a group of individuals who'd started out by manufacturing restaurant ranges for an outfit called BECA. With their new idea, they aimed to profit from the growing demand for luxury outdoor cooking equipment. The company's first product was the Lynx Professional Grill, available both in free-standing and built-in models, featuring an access door, side burners and even a cocktail station.
The Professional Grill was designed exclusively for outdoor use. To ensure that this flagship product could stand up to the elements, Lynx used a special welding technique, to ensure that the stainless steel grill wouldn't have any gaps, seams or other places where rain, grease and pesky liquids of that ilk could collect.
