Artisan AAEP-26 American Eagle Series 26-Inch Built In Gas Grill provides a luxury grill package at an affordable price. Featuring commercial-grade 304 stainless steel construction, Artisan’s Professional Grills are meticulously crafted in the U.S.A. and designed for long-term durability. Heavy-duty 304 stainless steel burners offer high heat, while refractive five-way heat distributing briquettes offer even and radiant heat across the cooking surface. Durable stainless steel cooking grates with a special non-stick electro-polished finish offer restaurant quality cooking and easy cleaning, while an integrated warming and grilling rack provides more versatile cooking options. Ergonomic grill knobs and brass valves offer precision flame control, while stainless steel ignition and lighting buttons are integrated into the control panel for easy operation. This grill also features an exclusive air-cooling plenum which blasts a curtain of cool air between the front control panel and the firebox to keep the front panel and bullnose cool to the touch.
The Artisan American Eagle Series offers several unique features which help make your grilling experience even more enjoyable. Quality-of-life features like a spring-assisted grill hood and a 9V electronic ignition make the grill easier to use. Additionally, this grill can be upgraded with rotis accessory ART-ROT36 (sold separately) to further increase cooking options. Finally, this grill can be configured with or without an integrated Sear Zone infrared burner capable of providing intense heat and authentic steakhouse results.
